‘Trump Is a Liar, and He Is Stupid’: Dan Pfeiffer on Trump, Tweeting, and Political Climate Change

Dan Pfeiffer, co-host of Pod Save America and former senior adviser and communications director for President Obama, joins Daniella and Ed this week to discuss the current administration and how he stumbled into a podcasting empire.

Dan Pfeiffer knows when to speak. As a former senior adviser and communications director for former President Barack Obama, Pfeiffer was once charged with shaping 44’s public voice and vision. Now, as a Pod Save America co-host and author of a new book, Yes We (Still) Can, Pfeiffer—like the rest of us—is still reckoning with how we went from the first black president to one that traffics in racism and fascism and has white supremacists on his staff. He joined the pod this week to remind us that we are not that far removed from a president who is comfortable using polysyllabic words and shares how he accidentally stumbled into a podcasting empire.
