What Michael Fanone just said on Nicole [View all]

Pretty please read to the end of the quote.

"I think that everyone has a responsibility, at least those of us who love this country and love Democracy to do everything that they can in their power to ensure the future of our Democracy and right now I think the biggest threat is donald trump in a second trump presidency. That being said, I thought maybe naïvely that being a former trump supporter, a police officer, a white guy that maybe I could communicate with some other trump supporters as to why, you know, how I was bamboozled so to speak, lied to by the former president, but unfortunately their, I guess you’d say messaging apparatus is strong enough to withstand even my country ass."

I think it's important, one because he identifies himself as a former trump supporter which I've never heard him do before in TV interviews. He also verbalizes the relevance of race.
