Politics and Prune Juice Ep. 20 – Media Inflates Trump’s Congressional Speech, Disappointing Georgia Town Hall, and DeVos Fails at HBCU 101
Matt | On 01, Mar 2017
On the 20th episode, host Matt Stevens sorts through an avalanche of unwarranted praise heaped on Donald Trump for his primetime speech to the joint session of Congress. You shouldn’t get extra credit for reading the teleprompter correctly!
Matt also shares a personal experience of Congress failing its constituents in Georgia. Sen. David Perdue seems to be afraid of the people he represents in the Peach State. Find out how Perdue left his staff at a town hall in a parking lot to deal with voters. (Hint: There was no water, restroom facilities, and barely any chairs).
Finally, we find out how Education Secretary Betsy DeVos missed some basic details – before issuing a correction – about Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Didn’t quite think we would have to give history lessons to the education secretary this early into her unearned position.
