Then, we’re joined by several experts who weigh in on the impact of this inauguration. We also hear from Maclean’s columnist Scott Gilmore, who was on the ground speaking with people in the crowd during the historic event.

Finally, from Trump to O’Leary, it seems reality TV businessmen are dominating leadership talk in North America.
