HWX: April Love with Guest Mike Nelson

It’s a special midweek edition of HWX with Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas and Paul Happe of the Nihilist in Golf Pants reconvening to discuss the critical issues of our time. Topics addressed include:
* Black Lives Matters protests – their tactics and motivations are analyzed, including audio of a master of rhetorical jujitsu, Bill Clinton and how he responds, with equal parts shaming and offering up the real villain – the Republican party.
* Hillary Clinton and CPT time – analysis of her allegedly racist joke, as well as exclusive new audio of her subsequent appearance to make amends with a comedy set at the Apollo Theater.
* Trump – with a break in the primary season, the Trump children take center stage, and we analyze the genetic comparison of children by Trump wife. Also coverage of the Trump children’s inability to vote in New York, and Ivanka’s hot new scarf line (with an exclusive sneak preview of her new ad).
