Make Theroux/Trump the new Frost/Nixon

This petition had 14 supporters

In 1977, a disgraced US President was interviewed by a forensic interviewer about his actions.

Forty years later, it's time to start planning for the next instalment.

If President Trump is impeached, the BBC needs a modern interviewer able to delve into troubled psyches and explore the madness within with a wry calmness and the demeanour of a man trying to understand why the delivery driver just put the 'Sorry we missed you' slip through his door without knocking, even though he stayed in the living room the whole morning to make sure he didn't miss it.

It needs Louis Theroux.

We need - more than ever - for the BBC to commit to making political interviewing great again, and to guarantee that Louis Theroux will be offered first dibs on any post-impeachment interview with President Trump.

Ha, trump. Thrrrrrrp.
