In response to a suggestion from Franklin Leonard, the Washington Post recently published a video providing an hour-by-hour comparison of how President Obama and President Trump responded in the wake of school shootings. The video is a very compelling piece for comparing (and contrasting) the differences in these two presidents’ approaches.
The video did a great job juxtaposing Obama’s and Trump’s intraday activities and responses (comparing Obama’s first day of response to Trump’s, etc.), but I felt it was hard to compare the actual timing of each event. I decided to re-visualize this information into one single timeline to (hopefully) present a slightly different effect.
