Non-documented persons dropped off at VP Harris’ home

How ironic! On March 24, 2021 (1-1/2 years ago) President Biden tasked VP Harris with the migrant/border issue. Other than a brief visit to top Central American government leaders, what else has she done about it? I haven’t heard any news media comments about VP Harris’ work on it other than to say in Texas last week that the borders “were secure.” Do you want to look deeper into this, Brad?

The “Don’t Look up” of podcast news. SMH

June 16 show. Omg. About the home title lock story. I cannot believe the host is continuing to perpetuate The racist bogeyman of the Nigerian prince when it’s been known that The so-called Nigerian prince are Russians, Ukrainians and Chinese. Please stop putting out racist Memes into the zeitgeist of Black hi tech criminals. This is disgusting lie and jokes where people come for news. June 1 promo about the Emmett Till podcast, host Brad refer to his murder as his death. Very disrespectful and insensitive to the truth. Just when you think he couldn’t be any more “goofy”, he topped his usual level. smh. Such privilege. Good news stories covered but the host need to just deliver the news and stop injecting his “personality” and side comments. On several occasions someone is talking about a serious topic and the host is trying to make light and humorous tagged on comments like someone who perceive themselves to be more humorous and personable than they actually are. Yuck!
