Description


What the Hell is Happening? Inside U.S. Politics

with John Heilemann, author of "Game Change" & "Double Down" and producer of "The Circus on Showtime"

Canada 2020 will host John Heilemann, best-selling author, award-winning producer and frequent political commentator for a free, public event on December 13th in Ottawa.

What the Hell is Going On? Inside U.S. Politics picks up where last year's event ("What the Hell Just Happened? Inside the U.S. Election") left off.

As we approach the one-year anniversary of the Trump Administration taking office, we can reflect on one of the most turbulent periods in modern political history. Canada 2020 is pleased to welcome John Heilemann to our stage to help navigate the state of play in U.S. Politics, and what might lay ahead.

Registration is free and open to the public.



John Heilemann has covered politics, business, and their intersection for nearly three decades in America and abroad. He is a creator, executive producer, and host of The Circus , Showtime’s heralded political documentary series, which chronicled the 2016 presidential campaign and the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency. Heilemann is also a national affairs analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, where he appears regularly on Morning Joe, The Last Word, Hardball, Deadline: White House and other programs.

During the 2016 election cycle, Heilemann served as co-managing editor of Bloomberg Politics, leading the company’s political and policy coverage—including news, analysis, commentary, and data analytics—across its media platforms. He was the co-host of MSNBC and Bloomberg TV’s daily news analysis program With All Due Respect. He is the co-author of The New York Times No. 1 best sellers Game Change and Double Down, which chronicled the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, respectively.

With Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime, Heilemann co-authored the definitive account of the historic 2008 election. The book wasa runaway international best seller, reprinted in eight languages. HBO Films adapted Game Change into a film of the same name that debuted in March 2012 and was one of the network’s most-watched original movies ever. It went on to win five Emmy Awards, three Golden Globes, and a Peabody Award.
