Politics and Prune Juice Podcast #5 – Hillary on Benghazi, Biden, Puerto Rico, Christie, and Guest Lenny McAllister
Matt | On 27, Oct 2015
The fifth episode of “Politics and Prune Juice” is all about the mania that swept Capitol Hill around Hillary Clinton’s testimony about the Benghazi compound attack of 2012. Led by host, Matt Stevens, we also look at Joe Biden’s decision not to run for president in 2016.
The imminent economic crisis facing Puerto Rico comes into play on this week’s topic list. And finally, we get to the real reason why Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie, also New Jersey’s governor, was kicked off of an Acela train car from Washington, D.C. to New York over the weekend.
This week’s interview guest is Lenny McAllister, a Pittsburgh Cable News Channel host and KDKA Radio personality. Lenny chats with Matt about what it means for him to be a black Republican in 2015 and his journey to that political affiliation. He discusses party vs. leadership and areas of strength and weakness that he sees in the GOP. It’s a very enlightening conversation!
As always, you can keep up with Matt and the show on Twitter at @PruneJuiceMedia.
Note: Interview with Lenny McAllister starts around the 23:53 mark.
