“All Roads Lead to Mar-a-Lago”: Inside the Fury and Fantasy of Donald Trump’s Florida

“All Roads Lead to Mar-a-Lago”: Inside the Fury and Fantasy of Donald Trump’s Florida

It’s late afternoon, and the palms of Fort Lauderdale are swaying as Roger Stone—dirty trickster, convicted felon—glides across the boulevard in short sleeves and a linen jacket, ready for his first cocktail of the day. We’re approaching the Elbo Room, a decrepit party bar on the spring-break beach strip that’s packed with revelers and blaring Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” “If you’re 18 and trying to get laid, this is the place to go,” observes Stone, who is shadowed by a neatly dressed young man who calls himself Eddie and whom Stone describes as his aide-de-camp. This isn’t Stone’s usual...

“He Wants Nothing to Do With Government, or at Least Our Form of It”: Democrat Beto O’Rourke Wants to Save Texas From Ted Cruz

“He Wants Nothing to Do With Government, or at Least Our Form of It”: Democrat Beto O’Rourke Wants to Save Texas From Ted Cruz

L’affaire Ted Cruz has ruled the news this week and for good reason: Cruz, a man as unctuous in personality as he is successful in trolling the libs, donned his skinny jeans and while his home state of Texas was reeling from a freak snowstorm that stranded millions without power, heat, and access to food and water. The groveling interviews Cruz gave upon his swift return, blaming his daughters’ need to escape their cold home for warmer climes (later refuted by now infamous ), hasn’t helped his cause. He also left quite an opening for Beto O’Rourke, Cruz’s one-time rival for Senate, who...

“How Many of These People Are Just Batshit Crazy?”: CNN’s Jake Tapper on Politics and Media in the Trump Era

“How Many of These People Are Just Batshit Crazy?”: CNN’s Jake Tapper on Politics and Media in the Trump Era

For a while, it looked as if fiction might finally conquer reality. For the past three weeks, Donald Trump has waged a misinformation campaign to overturn the results of the 2020 election, pressuring and to push his false claims of fraud, and sending liberals into paroxysms of paranoia. Ultimately, much of the GOP acceded (mostly) to reality and that Joe Biden is the president-elect of the United States. And yet millions of people——have been left falsely believing Trump was robbed. For Jake Tapper, the chief Washington correspondent for CNN, that’s an indictment of Trump, but a tragedy for...

“Nationalism Will Run Roughshod Over Democracy”: What Can Nazi Germany Tell Us About Trump’s GOP?

“Nationalism Will Run Roughshod Over Democracy”: What Can Nazi Germany Tell Us About Trump’s GOP?

This week Inside the Hive welcomes historian Peter Fritzsche, author of to help separate fact from exaggeration on the increasingly pressing question of how much Donald Trump’s GOP resembles the Nazis of the early 1930s. As Trump attacks democratic norms and undermines the electoral process, and Attorney General William Barr stokes fear of “a socialist path” if Trump loses, historians are hearing distressing echoes of Adolph Hitler’s rise, from the fearmongering demonization of the left to the threats of street violence and military force against enemies both real and imagined. One...

“I’ll Never Question 1938 in Germany Again”: An Ex-Republican Strategist Surveys the Wreckage of Trump’s GOP

“I’ll Never Question 1938 in Germany Again”: An Ex-Republican Strategist Surveys the Wreckage of Trump’s GOP

On the latest episode of Inside the Hive, former Republican strategist Stuart Stevens described the GOP under Donald Trump as a party of cynics, stooges, racists, and obsequious enablers whose profiles in cowardice bear an uncomfortable resemblance to 1930s Germany. “When I talk to Republican politicians, I hear Franz von Papen,” he says, referencing the German chancellor who convinced Germans that so-called radical leftists were a far greater threat than Adolf Hitler. “They all know that Trump is an idiot. They all know that he’s uniquely unqualified to be president. But they convinced...
