John Avlon, Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Beast, comes on the podcast to talk about his new book Washington’s Farewell: The Founding Father’s Warning to Future Generations.  

He’ll discuss the origins of George Washington’s Farewell Address and why he describes it as the most famous speech you’ve never read. He’ll reveal some of the other founding fathers worked as ghost writers on the address, discuss how Washington’s Farewell Address influenced President Eisenhower’s famous Farewell Address, and how it was even misused as a rallying cry for one pro-Nazi organization at the start of World War II. Plus John Avlon debunks the phrase most famously associated with the Farewell Address and shares the dire warning that President Trump and Congress ignore at their peril.
