Bob Knight, Donald Trump, and Their Supporters are Birds of a Feather May 10, 2019

Back in December, I wrote an article called, “The Last Days of Trump.” It was my reaction to the ESPN documentary, “The Last Days of Knight,” about the fall of the legendary Indiana basketball coach. That doc made it very clear to me how similar Knight and Trump are, as well as their die-hard supporters. Just days before I wrote that article, Knight came out to support Trump at a rally in Indianapolis, which was held a mere 5 miles from my home. This scene was repeated on April 27. So I decided to revisit the subject in podcast form.
