FRONTLINE filmmaker Michael Kirk joins us to discuss his 2-night, 4-hour miniseries, “Divided States of America,” airing days before Donald Trump’s inauguration. It tells the inside story of the division and polarization in Washington that frustrated the Obama presidency and laid the groundwork for the election of Trump, a self-proclaimed outsider.

"Divided States of America" airs Tuesday, January 17th and Wednesday, January 18th at 9 p.m. on PBS.
