Politics and Prune Juice Ep. 15 – Michelle Obama’s Lethal Inauguration Side-Eye and Women’s Marches
Matt | On 24, Jan 2017
We cover all of the “alternative facts” about Inauguration 2017 in this 15th episode of the podcast!
One of the best things to happen to during the peaceful transfer of power was outgoing First Lady Michelle Obama’s not-so-subtle side-eye. It captured the shady hearts and minds of Americans who did not vote for President Donald Trump. This perfect gesture summed up how America felt about not only the ceremony, but the new Administration in general.
Host Matt Stevens also discusses his personal experience at the Atlanta Women’s March on January 21. We also look at how and why the D.C. march easily surpassed the Inauguration attendance figures just the day prior. Valid criticism of the marches is addressed and how communities of color need to see themselves better represented in the current calls for change.
Breaking news from the Senate about White House Cabinet confirmations and the death knell for TPP, or the Trans-Pacific Partnership, are also covered.
