An Impeachment and an Inauguration

January 19, 2021

The Biden administration is set to begin as America copes with a chaotic start to the new year: from an insurrection to a second impeachment of President Trump, all while the COVID-19 death toll reaches new heights.

Veteran FRONTLINE filmmaker Michael Kirk and his team have been chronicling the 2020 presidential election and the ensuing fallout for multiple FRONTLINE films, including President Biden, airing January 19 on PBS.

Kirk joins The FRONTLINE Dispatch to talk about this moment in American history and what lies ahead for President-elect Joe Biden. “Is he right for the times? If he is, it’s a presidency for the century,” Kirk said.
