The history of American presidential humor and likeability
The nation observed President's Day Monday, February 18th. We talk with presidential historian and author H.W. Brands who recently visited Grand Valley State University’s Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies presenting Comedian-in-Chief: What Presidents' Humor Says About Them, and About Us.
Brands explores the importance of humor and likeability among American leaders beginning with the seriousness of President George Washington to President Donald Trump.
