‘Does Anyone Know I Own a House in Charlottesville?’

Epideictic speeches are part of the performative repertoire of any political leader, and are used in a wide range of situations; for example, to celebrate an Olympic team’s sporting success or important anniversary, or to commemorate a public tragedy such as a plane crash or mass shooting. The paper recently published by Tess Slavíčková critically examines remarks and other actions by Donald Trump in the hours and days following a violent protest in 2017 by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia which led to the death of a young counter-protester, when he famously asserted there was „blame on both sides“.
