Interview: George Will, Political Columnist for the Washington Post
It’s been an unprecedented year, with a global pandemic, and a days long election with a record number of voters and now, a sitting President who has not conceded.
The 21st talks to political commentator and Champaign native George Will, who says “the American project is more battered than at any time” since the Civil War. He says the crisis is rooted in a public that’s “evenly divided by mutual incomprehension.” In 2019, Will published his latest book, The Conservative Sensibility.
