Aaron Rupar’s Most Viral Content

If you spend even a little bit of time on Twitter, you’ve probably seen an Aaron Rupar tweet in your feed.

Through his twitter and Public Notice newsletter, the former Vox journalist analyzes what he describes as “the biggest story in American politics today… the Republican Party’s turn against democracy and embrace of authoritarianism.”  

After three years at Vox, he started his newsletter to do independent reporting on Trumpism “without worrying about how it fits into someone else’s editorial vision.”

His “fair, but not impartial” coverage on Twitter and Substack is meant to appeal to a progressive audience, and he “immerses [himself] in right-wing media and watches Trump rallies so you [don’t] have to.”

Here is some of his standout content:
