“When something is politically incorrect, that means it’s actually correct. Politically incorrect is just a way to brush over reality.” - Michael Knowles

Donald Trump is a controversial figure.

Over the past year, we’ve watched him tweet from his hip, insult his colleagues, and call countries bad names. It’s clear that no previous president has come close to this type of behavior, and from our vantage point, we feel that’s legitimate enough reason to be alarmed. But is anything good coming from this?

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by political commentator Michael Knowles. Michael is known for his book Reasons to Vote for Democrats, which is just a collection of 256 blank pages. Regardless of your political orientation, his insights on the political climate are well thought out and deserve our attention.

“Donald Trump cracked that politically correct veneer of mass media and really opened up conversations for Americans.” - Michael Knowles
