The Slant – In Memory: A Thorn in Trump’s Side

For this week’s podcast, we’re honoring the memory of Wayne Barrett, the journalism legend who passed away last week. A week before the New York presidential primary in 2016, we had the chance to sit down with Barrett for an interview spanning many topics including Donald Trump. Barrett quite literally wrote the book on Trump, and knew of many of the pitfalls of the business mogul’s personality and practices before the presidential campaign put all of this in the spotlight. Today, we’re re-running a portion of our interview with Barrett, which takes on new meaning in light of Trump’s election victory.
