This video features an interview with Stanley Fish, the well-known public intellectual who railed on the statement issued during the election of 2016 by Historians Against Trump.  His claims are challenged by historians who believe that they have a moral obligation to engage the public on the issues raised by Trump's candidacy.

The interviews were conducted at the annual meeting of the American Historical Association on January 6, 2017 by the History News Network.
