Plus: our new visual arts blog, and a tour of Trump’s conflict of interest



Amanda Kolson Hurley gives us a tour of the Trump Hotel, microcosm of the President’s conflict of interest; our editorial assistant Noelani Kirschner introduces the Scholar’s newest blog; and a chorus of voices tells us why they went to Washington for the Women’s March.
