Person of the Day: Rudy in the Box


RUDY IN THE BOX. His comments yesterday indicating that a Democratic victory would leave the country vulnerable to an attack on the scale of 9/11 give you the essence of his whole campaign: Party like it’s 2001. Only it’s not. Pop goes the weasel.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
