2 posts | 1 reading
Welcome to the White House. At the heart of Washington, there is a circus. It's raucous, noisy and full of clowns. Reporting on it is a daily cacophony. Four major stories can blow up and blow out before breakfast, and political weather systems are moving at warp speed. The one thing absent from the weather forecast is the tranquil eye of the storm. That we never see. In A Year at the Circus: Inside Trump's White House, BBC North America Editor, Jon Sopel, takes you inside Trumps West Wing and explores the impact this presidency has had on the most iconic of American institutions. Each chapter starts inside a famous Washington room, uncovering its history and its new resonance in the Trump era. You are invited to step inside the Oval Office where Trump called for loyalty from FBI Director James Comey, and experience life as a reporter in the Briefing Room, where the tense relationship between the media and the President is played out. Guiding you through these rooms, Jon reveals the inner workings of the Trump White House and details the key moments and conversations that have unfolded within its walls. From Kim Jong-un and Kavanaugh to Merkel and the Mueller Inquiry - this is your insider guide to the Washington Circus. Roll up, roll up ...

Jon Sopel on Trump's Whitehouse at #HayFestival now. Saw him at hay last year (or was it 2 years ago) discussing his first book about the Trump campaign. Highly amusing.

squirrelbrain I seem to be having issues with all of these - they get stuck whether Zi watch them live or on catchup 😠. Our internet is a bit rubbish so it must be that. 3y
ElaineR Oh no, what a pain. Maybe it's this windy weather causing issues. 3y

ElaineR @Cuilin I have done previously but haven't got subscription at the min. I think if Lockdown goes on much longer I might though. I'm running out of podcasts to listen to! 3y
Cuilin @ElaineR I‘m seriously considering it! 3y
ElaineR @Cuilin there's definitely some good stuff on there. Have you signed up for any of this years stuff? 3y
Cuilin @ElaineR Yes. But having a hard time accessing. So not watched. That‘s why I‘m considering Hay player. Not sure it would work in the US. (edited) 3y
ElaineR @Cuilin oh no. I've been very lucky from the sounds of it. No real problems with any so far. 3y
