Divided States of America: Part 1

A thorough in-depth view of the partisan gridlock in Washington during President Barack Obama’s years in office, the rise of populist anger on both sides of the aisle, and the racial tensions that erupted throughout the country.
Wesley Lowery, author of They Can’t Kill Us All: “The great irony of the Obama presidency, right, is someone who came in on the mandate of changing Washington as we know it, someone who came on the mandate of ending this gridlock and this polarization, by his very presence and by his very humanity, who he was, the color of his skin, the sound of his name, forced more polarization and gridlock than we had seen in the eight years prior.”
