Beau Willimon, creator of “House of Cards,” discussed the state of politics on Friday morning at 7 a.m. PT, the day of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration.
The Oscar and Emmy nominee joined a conversation with TheWrap CEO Sharon Waxman and Anna Palmer, coauthor of Politico’s Playbook daily newsletter, as part of Politico’s 2017 Inauguration Hub at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Programming at the Hub included a panel at 10:30 a.m. PT on the future of environmental policy that was co-moderated by Waxman and Politico Editor John Harris, titled, “Coming Together: The Environment and the Next Four Years.”
Panel participants included Mike McKenna, President, MWR Strategies; Collin O’Mara, CEO, National Wildlife Federation; and Fisher Stevens, actor and Oscar-winning documentarian whose most recent film is the Leonardo DiCaprio-narrated “Before the Flood.”
On Friday, January 20, the top of the W Hotel, located across from the White House, was transformed into POLITICO’s 2017 Inauguration Hub welcoming a mix of political leaders, activists and respected business and cultural figures.
Inauguration coverage and the swearing-in ceremony was played on screens throughout the hub and the day is set to close with viewing of the inaugural parade route from the W hotel.
The space on top of the W Hotel provides exclusive views of the White House and the Inauguration Day Parade route from an all-day networking lounge and will be the premier destination for D.C. Influencers to experience this historic moment.
