The Final Act of the Trump Show

Video of talk by Jonathan Karl

11 a.m., January 16, 2022

At this Sunday Forum we will watch a video from the Commonwealth Club of California in which journalist and author Jonathan Karl describes “The Final Act of the Trump Show.”

Veteran journalist Jonathan Karl has known and covered Donald J. Trump longer than any other White House reporter. And during that time, he has been praised, taunted and branded an enemy of the people by President Trump himself. So possibly nobody is in a better position to tell the story of the shocking final chapter of the Trump show than Karl.

In his new book Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show, Karl takes us behind the scenes of some of the darkest days in American history and shares what happened during the final weeks of the Trump presidency, the aftermath that followed, and what it means for the future of the Republican Party.

You can view his 58-minute video, which was recorded last December, at
