Is Trump the result of a revolution? Or will he unchain one? And will the rest of his presidency be as turbulent as his first 100 days? Join us on May 1st to reflect on one of the stormiest periods in recent American history.

With Thomas Frank, political analyst and historian, and writer of Listen, Liberal – or: Whatever Happened to the Party of the People? is the title of his newest best-selling book. Thomas Frank will be joined on stage by Pulitzer Prize winner Will Englund, former head of the Moscow bureau of the Washington Post. He will discuss the various claims, leaks and accusations, but will also draw an interesting parallel with events that happened a century ago: the Russian Revolution. Additionally, Boom Chicago comedian Greg Shapiro is present. Greg recently went viral as the voice of Trump (“Grab ‘em by the pony”) in the hilarious video in which Arjen Lubach introduces the Netherlands to Trump.
