PhilaMOCA hosts journalist/comedian Harmon Leon’s (Vice, The Nation) one-man multimedia show HARMON LEON INFILTRATES TRUMP AMERICA! Plus special guest, award-winning cartoonist Ted Rall, on the heels of the launch of their new book: Meet The Deplorables: Infiltrating Trump America.

NY comedian/VICE contributor, Harmon Leon has made a career out of infiltrating extremist groups in Trump America. Take his hand as he leads you on a multimedia undercover journey into such facets of Trump America as anti-immigration vigilantes, the world of Christian conversion therapy, and abortion protesters…plus songs! Weird, wildly original and completely incomprehensible – if you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!
