What can a deep dive into presidents of the past tell us about the potential of a Biden second term and the dangers of a Trump second term? For the answers we turn to Douglas Brinkley, a leading presidential historian. He is CNN's official Presidential Historian, a professor at Rice University and the author of 20 books. In this episode, Bill talks to Brinkley about the qualities of great presidents and the lessons we can learn from them. They discuss the importance of figures like George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, who are often considered the greatest presidents in American history. Brinkley highlights their leadership during times of crisis, such as the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and World War II. They also discuss the changing role of the presidency over time, including the increased focus on foreign affairs and the environment. Brinkley emphasizes the importance of a president's ability to adapt to new technologies and effectively communicate with the public. They also touch on the current presidential election and the contrasting styles of Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Brinkley concludes by stating that this election is one of the most important in American history due to the potential consequences of a second Trump term.Today’s Bill Press Pod is supported by The Laborers’ International Union of North America, rebuilding America’s infrastructure, More information at LIUNA.org.

He explains that Trump exhibits signs of narcissism, paranoia, antisocial personality disorder, and sadism, which are characteristic of a "planet-killing personality disorder." Gartner also suggests that Trump is showing signs of dementia, such as difficulty completing sentences and using language, and predicts that if reelected, Trump would become mentally incapacitated within four years.
