    Gift link to Washington Post article (so no paywall should need to be bypassed):

    https://wapo.st/3t95akP

    The article is dated November 30 - more than a week ago now. The statement was in an interview with Andrew Ross Sorkin of the New York Times on Wednesday November 29. I don't have a subscription to the failing NYT, but this is a link to a ... podcast, I think? which has the interview in audio form. I think. I didn't listen to it but if you're looking for primary sources this appears to be it.

    I tend to think the nature of his scenes like Clayton Bigsby and the Racial Draft suggest he knows America as well as I do. But you have apparently seen an interview of some kind and I have not.

    You can both be right. Dave can know America on race and still find protecting his wealth more important.

    I think the context is that he was trying to toot his own horn, to say that he was the one who had been trying to change that.

    And now he endorsed Donald Trump and is hoping for a post in his Cabinet.

    Steve Schmidt has zero credibility with me. His compass is wherever he thinks he can get the biggest paycheck. I’m glad he broke with the GOP over Trump, but nothing else I’ve heard or seen makes me think he’s one to heed.
