1/ As I show in #HouseofTrump, Trump's assault on truth and reality resembles that of Vladislav Surkov, Putin's former Deputy Prime Minister, who created a new kind of propaganda. @robreiner
2/ Coming out of the bohemian world of performance art, Surkov mixed theatrical techniques w the latest in the dark arts of marketing and applied it all in service of Vladimir Putin.
3/ Surkov saw his mission as creating one big reality TV show for Putin. (Sound familiar?) Before Surkov, political discourse resembled one ongoing battle for control of the narrative. But Surkov undermined the entire notion of truth, so the opposition was completely befuddled.
