Link to MSNBC video

Paul Musgrave, says while conspiracy theories used to be confined to the fringes of national political discourse, they are now becoming mainstream thanks to President Donald J. Trump’s use of them. He says this could undermine the foundations of our democracy because people get used to believing what matches their ideas rather than thinking there is an objective truth. He also notes that both political parties are now using conspiracy theories.
