In an interview with Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR) longtime conservative talk show host Charlie Sykes said he’ll be voting for Joe Biden in November.

"I just think we have to end this particular segment of American history," said Sykes.

Aside from President Trump’s supporters, Sykes told WPR that most Americans don’t want a president who stoked the ‘fires of chaos and violence’, that he believes Trump did when the president refused to denounce 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, the shooter of protestors in Kenosha.

Sykes also to WPR he’s worried about the people who know when Trump is lying and turn the other cheek.

As of July 9, a running tracker from The Washington Post reported that Trump made 20,055 false or misleading claims since taking office.

"The point is not to make you believe the lie," Sykes said. "It's making you doubt your critical sensibilities, so you just shrug and go, 'I don't know who to believe. I don't know what is truth.' And that's a dangerous place for a democracy."
