With 100 days until the presidential election, with President Donald Trump double digits down in the polls and his Democratic contender, Joe Biden, sitting on a healthy 50+ approval rating, we’re living in a critical moment in American history, a time that separates one age from another, a period that refocused our priorities from one of anti-diluvian isolation to forward-looking, progressive and worldly engagement.
Anyone old enough to remember November 2016 knows that crushing polls don’t accurately predict a landslide election. They don’t predict Russian hacking, fake Facebook news feeds, James Comey’s surprise news conference, Access Hollywood, nor WikiLeaks leaks. Nor do they accurately reflect the deep resentment, a sense of rejection and bitterness many seemingly disenfranchised voters feel as they enter their ballot with a vicarious middle finger to the establishment.
Two White House Correspondents , Doug Christian and Christopher Bua, will nudge you through this tumultuous period as Washington insiders. We’ll ask the tough questions, look for some answers, and have some fun along the way.
