You may know Colonel Wilkerson from his appearances on Bill Maher’s show Real Time. The colonel has made a name for himself as a straight-shooting Republican, who had a long career in the military, where he worked closely with Colin Powell during the second Bush administration.
He sits down with American Rambler at the College of William and Mary, where the colonel is Distinguished Adjunct Professor of Government and Public Policy. He talks with Colin about being an Eisenhower Republican, his service in Vietnam, and how we are on a dangerous political course under Trump. It’s an hour of political talk that covers everything from My Lai to the invasion of Iraq.
