Virginia Heffernan talks to Martha Brockenbrough, author of the YA book Unpresidented, about breaking down the story of Donald Trump, his bullying, and his ancestry. It includes forays into the letter Friedrich Trump wrote to the prince regent of Bavaria in 1905 to keep from being deported, the Trump family’s history with real estate, Woody Guthrie’s anti-Trump song, and the powerful influence of Roy Cohn.
