Politics and Prune Juice Ep. 17 – Unqualified Betsy DeVos Gets Confirmed / Interview with Edward Ahmed Mitchell of CAIR Georgia
Matt | On 08, Feb 2017
This episode highlights everything that is wrong with putting people in power who have no experience to do any part of the job.
America … meet Betsy DeVos … your grossly unqualified new U.S. Secretary of Education. This epic fail is happening on the backs of America’s students!
We also uncover why calling Melania Trump foul names in the public sphere may not be the best idea legally. (Hint: She has attorneys and they will come after you!)
Later in the show, things look up as host Matt Stevens interviews Edward Ahmed Mitchell, the executive director of CAIR Georgia. The group, also known as The Council on American-Islamic Relations, advocates for and builds community around Muslims living in the United States.
Mitchell explains to our listeners the impact of Donald Trump’s “Muslim ban” against seven Middle Eastern and African nations. He also dispels myths about CAIR and lets us know how we can support our Muslim brothers and sisters during these tense times. It’s an enlightening discussion that you won’t want to miss!
