True Son of Liberty
 May 28, 2024
Greg Sargent is a thoughtful, intelligent reporter whose insight is desperately needed today. Ignore any negative reviews mentioning "Trump Derangement Syndrome" - that's a huge clue that the review is straight from Moscow.

 Apr 1, 2024
I'm genuinely concerned about the stronghold Trump Derangement Symdrome has on the American people. Basing your political beliefs off the hatred you have for a single person is simply UNHINGED. This hateful drivel is destroying our country!


Every weekday, The New Republic’s Greg Sargent brings you a fresh way of thinking about the biggest political stories of the moment, offered up in an entertaining, information-packed conversation with a leading lawmaker, journalist, or newsmaker. We go deep into the stories behind the headlines leading TNR and other news outlets—while making it fun and fast.
