Publisher's Summary

In this issue:
COMMENT
"Parting Words" by George Packer: Politicians are always letting the public off the hook—it might be the most unforgivably dishonest thing they do. Obama was more candid.
PROFILES
"Good Behavior" by Sarah Stillman: An unusual team of White House scientists works through the final days of the Obama Administration.
PERSONAL HISTORY
"My Father's Cellar" by John Seabrook: Learning how to drink, and how to stop.
POP MUSIC
"Independence Day" by Hua Hsu: Trump is only alluded to on Run the Jewels 3. But, in its note of political refusal, it feels like a protest album.
ON TELEVISION
"Tragedy Plus Time" by Emily Nussbaum: How do you fight an enemy who's just kidding?
