Everything you thought you knew about Trump and white working-class voters is wrong

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show by throwing some shade on the idea that there is a "civil war" raging within the GOP.  
 
Then we're joined by journalist and author Natasha Lennard to talk about the right's latest phony threat, critical race theory, and the very real danger of white backlash politics. 
 
And then Vanderbilt University political scientist Noam Lupu shatters some very widespread myths about Donald Trump's performance among white working-class voters.
