To mark the midway point in President Donald Trump’s first term, The Atlantic explored “50 of the most improbable, norm-bending, and destructive incidents of this presidency to date” in a package called Unthinkable. Editor in Chief Jeffrey Goldberg said of the list: “In most any previous presidency, Democratic or Republican, each moment on this list would have been unthinkable.”
On January 22nd, some of the writers behind the stories discussed the notable events in the first two years of the Trump administration and where the president and country go from here.
