Critics of America’s failings are now again being called Communists and socialists and told to leave our country, even though they love this nation no less than those who are telling them to go away. As I hear these echoes of the past, I recall and pray our nation heeds the words of a good man, George McGovern, in his acceptance speech at the 1972 Democratic National Convention: “We reject the view of those who say, ‘America, love it or leave it.’ We reply, ‘Let us change it so we can love it more.’” Why did you want to take this on?
The carapace of fame often conceals insecurity, so I tried to turn the conversation toward her grand influence, but she was like a cactus with spikes protecting her from anyone getting too close, particularly journalists.

I was talking to Chloe [Sevigny, a friend and “Russian Doll” guest star], who’s shooting in Italy, and Greta Lee [a “Russian Doll” co-star], who was crying on FaceTime. Uzo [Aduba, her co-star on “Orange Is the New Black”] was flipping out. It’s really, for me, pretty profound and feels, on a human level, deep that we’re all in this thing together. Starting with the 2016 primaries, the Trump campaign reversed the trend. While the more traditionally minded Republican operatives signed on to work for the party’s more traditional candidates, such as Jeb Bush, the Trump campaign found itself reliant on “the outliers, and a lot of them truly believed in digital,” said Zac Moffatt, chief executive of Targeted Victory, a Republican digital strategy firm. “It was a changing of the guard, strategically.”
