This week we sat down with David French to discuss the new media venture he is helping launch, The Dispatch. We also discuss if he is optimistic about the future of conservatism in America, the Democratic primary race, identity politics, impeachment, the meaning of “David French-ism,” his near-presidential run in 2016, and much more.
David French recently joined The Dispatch as a senior editor after several years as a staff writer at National Review. Before that he was president of the Foundation of Individual Rights in Education and served as a JAG officer in the US Army during the Iraq War, where he was awarded a Bronze Star.
