Today we sat down with Richard Hine, a novelist, content creator and political commentator. Previously he was the publisher of Time Magazine’s Latin American edition and vice president of marketing and business development at The Wall Street Journal. He created a Twitter parody account of President Trump, called “Real Donald Drumpf,”, which has been named one of the best Trump parody accounts by many major publications. He also created the Daily Edge and maintains a personal Twitter account, both very politically driven.
He shared his thoughts on President Trump, the current political climate, cancel culture and how social media has changed journalism. He also shared the origin of his Trump Twitter parody account and when the real President Trump conversed with him via the parody account on Twitter and eventually blocked him.
