In The Thick


Dec 3, 2019

Maria and Julio are joined by Esther Wang, senior staff writer with Jezebel, and LaTosha Brown, cofounder of Black Voters Matter and 2019 Harvard IOP Fellow, to talk about Mayor Pete Buttigieg's struggle with Black and Latino support, and how that's an extension of his poor track record with those exact constituencies in South Bend, Indiana. They also discuss how at the backdrop of the impeachment inquiry is not only the President with a number of sexual assault allegations against him, but also men in his administration who are also facing similar allegations.
