Thanks to Robert Reich for his perseverance.
Al Gore recently had something to say which bears repeating, the following from “The Guardian” re Pruitt, Trump and the swamp:
He [Al Gore] went on to accuse big business of leaning on Donald Trump to preserve Pruitt’s job. “The big grifters depend on the little grifter, and the big grifters have contacted the head grifter and said ‘Keep him in there’,” Gore said.
Gore finished with an impassioned call for reforms to protect the US democratic system from the caustic influence of rich individuals and corporations. “Our democracy was hacked long before Vladimir Putin hacked it, by big money and big lobbying. In order to solve the climate crisis we’ve got to fix the democracy crisis.”

The new Netflix four part series on RFK, “Bobby for President”, is tremendous, and provides historical perspective as well.
