Peterborough - P.J. O'Rourke and his book on the 2016 election "How The Hell Did This Happen"

P J O’ROURKE discussing and signing HOW THE HELL DID THIS HAPPEN? – THE ELECTION OF 2016 the political satirist, journalist, and diehard Republican’s humorous take on the 2016 presidential campaign season. P.J. brings his critical eye and inimitable voice to some seriously risky business. Starting in June 2015, he asks, "Who are these jacklegs, high-binders, wire-pullers, mountebanks, swellheads, buncombe spigots, four-flushers and animated spittoons offering themselves as worthy of America's highest office?" and surveys the full cast of presidential candidates including everyone you've already forgotten and everyone you wish you could forget.  It was an election cycle so absurd even P.J. ultimately endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
