Although the expression "asshole" can shock, it clearly describes a certain type of individual: narcissistic, arrogant, and totally indifferent to the misfortune they inflict on others. Inspired by Aaron James’ New York Times bestseller, director John Walker takes a look at the contemporary "asshole culture," which seems to be thriving over the last 20 years, thanks in part to the impunity provided by social networks. He takes a look at the appeal of "assholes," why they thrive in certain environments and why they keep getting elected.
