BarbWire Executive Editor Tami Jackson Interviews Dinesh D’Souza (Audio)
Dinesh D’Souza is on the social and broadcast media circuit, spreading word of his new movie, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.
And not a moment too soon: Hillary is salivating at the thought of making 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue once again, the Clinton B and B, with Lincoln bedroom stays parceled out to high-roller and big donor pals.
But not so fast Hillary Rodham Clinton, not so fast. You’re only 90-some days away from grabbing the White House keys, however, your coronation is not a done deal.
And certainly won’t be if Dinesh D’Souza has anything to say about it.
BarbWire Executive Editor Tami Jackson wrote a review last week, D’Souza Unveils the DNC and Hillary in Visually Stunning ‘Hillary’s America’ Movie, and this week she hosted Dinesh on her show for a short (just a little over 17 minutes), but substantive interview.
Listen as Tami and Dinesh discuss how the movie roll-out is doing, some startling facts about the Democrats seen in the movie, why did D’Souza — a well known writer, speaker and academic — change course and begin filmmaking?
TJ: Dinesh, I had a good friend message after reading my review that he had wanted to see the movie this past weekend in Phoenix, but when he got to the cinema and ALL of the showings were sold out and that was by 1 in the afternoon!
DD: That’s awesome. The movie’s doing terrific. It’s already the top documentary of the year in just two weeks and it’s also in the top 10 political documentaries of ALL TIME! So, we certainly are giving Michael Moore, who’s been the king of the political documentary genre a run for his money. I’m thrilled the movie’s doing so well.
TJ: I’m thrilled for you, and I’m thrilled for our country, because this could be impactful and that’s what you’re hoping. This movie is the perfect backdrop to Hillary’s presidential run, and the release of it was perfect at the advent of the Democratic National Convention. I’m assuming that was your strategy?
DD: Well, I knew that the Democrats would be doing their song and dance routine. And of course, it’s not just about Hillary. They also pretend to be, you know, we’re the party of the ordinary man and we’re the party of the little guy and we’ve been fighting for women and for blacks and latinos and immigrants. Now, nothing could be further from the truth…
