The latest season of the Showtime political documentary series The Circus (subtitled Inside The Craziest Political Campaign On Earth) is airing now. It’s great. This past Sunday, in an episode entitled “Law And Disorder,” the show visited Kenosha.
“The Circus travels to Kenosha, Wisconsin, the site of a week of civil unrest after the shooting of Jacob Blake,” reads an episode synopsis. “President Trump attempts to redefine the struggle for racial justice into a political choice between Black and Blue lives with his visit. And kicking off his campaign travel, Joe Biden faces the challenge of satisfying all wings of the Democratic party while condemning looting & violence. Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes joins Alex Wagner to speak on police reform and his states’ response to protests.”
Barnes isn’t the only Milwaukeean featured in The Circus. Below, watch clips featuring Milwaukee activist Frank Nitty (fresh from his walk to Washington D.C.), Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (in bonus clip), and Marquette Law School Poll Director Charles Franklin.
New episodes of The Circus: Inside The Craziest Political Campaign On Earth air Sundays.
