Why Matt Taibbi Sees 2016 as the Year of the "Insane Clown President"

Email a Friend

Matt Taibbi, journalist, author and contributing editor to Rolling Stone, joins us to discuss his latest book, Insane Clown President: Dispatches from the 2016 Circus. He discusses his collection of political reporting on Donald Trump and the 2016 presidential candidates which began years before the election. Taibbi’s coverage and analysis addresses the power of spectacle over substance (and truth), the absence of a shared reality, the rebellion of the white working class, the death of the political establishment and the emergence of a disturbing, new white nationalism.

Taibbi will be giving a talk and signing books at Powerhouse Arena at 28 Adams St. in Brooklyn on Thursday, January 19th from 7:00-9:00pm. For more information, click here
