Taking On The Biden-Harris Administration On Day One


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Norman Solomon about Biden-Harris administration on day one.

On January 20, 2021, a majority of Americans heaved a sigh of relief watching Donald Trump leave Washington D.C. for his new Florida residence, and welcoming a new administration that promised truth, decorum, and decency. The all-star lineup of musicians sang tear-jerking syrupy anthems, and many among us cried with joy. And with good reason considering the nightmarish horror of the past four years.

But Sonali's next guest issues a warning with a quote from I.F. Stone that, incoming presidents “make us the dupes of our hopes.”
