"This is the real story of the Trump administration -- not what Trump is tweeting but what his appointees are doing to undermine civil rights, economic security and the environment." - Rev. Jesse Jackson

John Nichols joins Angie Coiro for a special Thursday edition of In Deep, to probe what lies beneath the flashiest aspects of the Donald Trump regime. In his new book Horsemen of the Trumpocalypse: A Field Guide to the Most Dangerous People in America, Nichols details the rogue's gallery of alt-right hatemongers, crony capitalists, immigrant bashers, and climate-change deniers now running the American government. To survive the next four years, Nichols argues, we the people need to know whose hands are on the levers of power. And we need to know how to challenge their abuses. Sticking to the hard facts and unafraid to dig deep into the histories and ideologies of the people who make up Trump's inner circle, Nichols delivers a clear-eyed and complete guide to this wrecking-crew administration.

John Nichols is the national affairs writer for The Nation magazine and a contributing writer for The Progressive and In These Times. He is also the associate editor of the Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin, and a cofounder of the media-reform group Free Press. A frequent commentator on American politics and media, he has appeared often on MSNBC, NPR, BBC and regularly lectures at major universities on presidential administrations and executive power. The author of ten books and has earned numerous awards for his investigative reports, including groundbreaking examinations (in collaboration with the Center for Media and Democracy) of the Koch brothers and the American Legislative Exchange Council.
