Many think Trump the first to put out alternate facts,
fantasies, conspiracy theories and outright lies. Not so,
says Kurt Andersen, author of Fantasyland: How America
Went Haywire. He tells Jim Zirin that fantasy has been
with us since the dawn of the republic, and Americans
have been willing to believe what they want to believe
for centuries.
