Where Did Donald Trump Come From?

Hogg, Shain & Scheck – Special Edition Dinner Event

Featuring David Shribman

American politics are at a pivotal point in history. This year’s presidential race features candidates who all have unique platforms and values. No other candidate however, is as eccentric, bold and unfiltered as Donald John Trump.

On June 1, Hogg, Shain & Scheck hosted a speaker presentation to celebrate the recent merger with local accounting firm, Marinucci & Company. The invitational event was targeted to HSS clients, business owners and not-for-profit community leaders. David Shribman, the executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, gave a detailed look at the upcoming presidential election and the likely Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump.

“He is one part populist, one part brilliant exploiter of public fears, one part mesmerizing but inflammatory preacher, one part showboat and one part crusading anti-elitist,” said Shribman. “Trump matches his rhetoric with a personality well tuned to the moment – a man too rich to be bought by big interests, too self-assured to be swayed by the concerns of the party establishment, too blunt to be misunderstood.”

The presentation examined the recent success of Donald Trump in the primaries and also discussed presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton. When talking about American presidential history, Shribman pointed out that some of the least favoured candidates leading into an election are remembered as some of the most impactful, well-liked Presidents of the United States.

Shribman’s coverage on politics is distinguished and highlighted by a Pulitzer Prize that he was awarded in 1995 for his reporting on Washington and the American political scene.

Hemingway’s knows how to draw a crowd! The Pre-Canada Day Celebration was a massive success. The rooftop patio was filled to the brim with every table full, a line out the door, and the bar busy with a sea of red and white wearing guests.


The event sponsor, Brickworks Ciderhouse provided free samples of their two ciders, Batch : 1904 the dry cider, and Queen Street 501 the sweeter cider made from eight different apples. While sampling the all natural ciders, guest were told about the brewing process and we able to ask questions. Brickworks also had a gift basket filled with goodies up for grabs in a raffle which was entered by anyone who bought a cider.


Guests were also treated to Brickworks inspired snacks crafted by Hemingway’s, which were very popular. These snacks included samosas and pakoras served with a dip, and a chilled honeydew puree with dry cider soup served in a shot glass.

Thank you to everyone who came out to start their Canada Day celebrations early and support Hemingway’s! Hope to see everyone at the next Hemingway’s event!
