Hogg, Shain & Scheck – Special Edition Dinner Event

Featuring David Shribman

American politics are at a pivotal point in history. This year’s presidential race features candidates who all have unique platforms and values. No other candidate however, is as eccentric, bold and unfiltered as Donald John Trump.

On June 1, Hogg, Shain & Scheck hosted a speaker presentation to celebrate the recent merger with local accounting firm, Marinucci & Company. The invitational event was targeted to HSS clients, business owners and not-for-profit community leaders. David Shribman, the executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, gave a detailed look at the upcoming presidential election and the likely Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump.

“He is one part populist, one part brilliant exploiter of public fears, one part mesmerizing but inflammatory preacher, one part showboat and one part crusading anti-elitist,” said Shribman. “Trump matches his rhetoric with a personality well tuned to the moment – a man too rich to be bought by big interests, too self-assured to be swayed by the concerns of the party establishment, too blunt to be misunderstood.”

The presentation examined the recent success of Donald Trump in the primaries and also discussed presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton. When talking about American presidential history, Shribman pointed out that some of the least favoured candidates leading into an election are remembered as some of the most impactful, well-liked Presidents of the United States.

Shribman’s coverage on politics is distinguished and highlighted by a Pulitzer Prize that he was awarded in 1995 for his reporting on Washington and the American political scene.
