Conservative commentator to give speech in Huntsman Hall on Thursday 4/19
Michael Knowles, Managing Editor of the right-leaning publication The Daily Wire and author of the New York Times best-selling blank book Reasons to Vote for Democrats, will speak in Jon M. Huntsman Hall room JMHH 370 on Thursday, April 19 at 7 p.m. to explain his staunch support for President Trump.
Hosted by The Statesman, Knowles will give a talk laying out his rationale for supporting the President followed by a question-and-answer session from the audience. Attendance is free and catered food will be provided during the event. Limited copies of Knowles’ book may be available. Food and books will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis to audience members.
Undergraduates from the University of Pennsylvania and other Philadelphia-area universities will gather to meet the actor-turned-journalist and ask questions in person. All students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend and to bring guests if they wish.
Knowles graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in History before pursuing his career in acting and political commentary. President Trump tweeted praise in 2017 for Knowles’ empty Simon & Schuster book, calling it “A great book for your reading enjoyment.” Knowles began hosting a regular podcast for The Daily Wire, where he works for editor-in-chief and founder Ben Shapiro.
The talk is co-hosted by the UPenn College Republicans. Its Facebook event can be found here.
