Texte du rabat

Ripped from the headlines, Meet the Deplorables: Infiltrating Trump America ventures deep into Red State territory and explores the current shape of our divided country, providing a fresh, first-hand perspective of right-wing subcultures and the mindsets of the so-called "deplorables" who helped propel Donald J. Trump to the Oval Office.
"A rollicking ride through Trumpland." -Harriet Alexander, The Telegraph
In his inimitable Gonzo-style, infiltration journalist HARMON LEON-whose stories have appeared in VICE, Esquire, The Nation, and National Geographic-dons a variety of disguises and goes undercover into the heart of Trump America where his exploits include canvassing door-to-door as a Trump supporter, hanging out with Trump fanatics as they receive free Donald tattoos, demonstrating how easy it is to purchase an assault weapon on Facebook, visiting an anti-Muslim hate group on the same day as a mass shooting, spending time with anti-choice protesters in front of Planned Parenthood, joining a conversion therapy group that tries to "turn" gay men straight, and many, many more.
Adding an innovative extra dimension to the book, TED RALL, two-time winner of the RFK Journalism Award and Pulitzer Prize finalist, enhances the carefully crafted narrative-and connects Leon's audacious accounts to the greater Trump phenomena-with his own distinctive cartoons and insightful analysis, including a poignant epilogue.
A necessary read in the time of Trump, this unique collaboration by the formidable team of Harmon Leon and Ted Rall holds up a mirror to modern conservative life and reflects a reality that is outrageous, entertaining, and illuminating.
