How bad is it? David Cay Johnston says ‘even worse than you think.’

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 02:43:53 +0000

Journalist David Cay Johnston has known and reported on President Donald Trump for nearly 30 years. When they first met, in Atlantic City, Johnston says he recognized Trump as “the P.T. Barnum of our age.” He has also said about Trump, and repeats in this talk, that “Donald doesn’t know anything.” In 2016, Johnston published a damning book, “The Making of Donald Trump.” The work detailed Trump’s avoidance of military service, his failure as a self-proclaimed philanthropist, and a litany of other personal and business failures. Johnston’s latest work is “It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America.” In it, he describes the Trump administration as a kakistocracy— government by the least qualified or most unprincipled citizens. In a call to action, he says Donald Trump is an employee of our government, and we need to act like owners. This talk was presented on January 29 at The Summit on Pike as part of Town Hall Seattle’s Civics series . Sonya Harris

The 'impossible position' of being president

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 18:00:00 +0000

Here’s a test for you. Who was the first U.S. President to be born an American, i.e., after the Revolution? Hint: He is the same man who said “As to the presidency, the two happiest days of my life were those of my entrance upon the office and my surrender of it.” That would be President Martin Van Buren. The U.S. Presidency is marked by pomp, circumstance and widespread reference to its occupant being “the most powerful man in the world.” It’s also known to age a person prematurely. According to historian Jeremi Suri , it has always been a bit of an impossible position. Suri is the author of “The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office.” He says, now especially, it is an office in desperate need of informed revision. Suri spoke with journalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran at Seattle University’s Pigott Auditorium on February 15. Town Hall Seattle presented this Inside/Out event as part of their Civics series. Jennie Cecil Moore recorded the conversation. Listen to
