Episode 58: The Politics Of The 'N' Word
THE ROTUNDA - From insinuating Jeb Bush is on suicide watch to calling President Obama the “N” word, comedian Larry Wilmore delivered a cringeworthy set of jokes at this year’s ‘Nerd Prom.’ Now critics are calling the act shameful and degrading. Did Wilmore go too far or was the audience just too sensitive to Wilmore’s warped sense of humor?
Trimmel Gomes’ latest episode of The Rotunda includes analysis on the White House Correspondents Dinner as News Service of Florida reporter Jim Turner recaps Gov. Rick Scott’s own cringeworthy standoff with Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater over the search for Florida’s new Insurance Commissioner. Plus, Justin Sayfie, the publisher of the popular online political news site, Sayfie Review, chats with Gomes about the hottest political races to watch in the Sunshine State. The Fort Lauderdale based lawyer-lobbyist who was also a former senior policy adviser to Gov. Bush reveals to Gomes how his friend, Jeb, is dealing with life after getting off the road to the White House.
