EPISODE 6 - JOHN CORNYN PRICE IS RIGHT | PAXTON FAMILY VALUES | THE RAINBOW CONNECTION: THE LOVERS, THE DREAMERS AND BRI
Lots of fun and games on Episode 6 of The Rabble! We play Price is Right on Senator John Cornyn’s corruption and a lighting round of Cliff Notes-Clapback: Immigration. Ken Paxton hearts cutting in line, stealing pens and his ethically questionable wife State Senator Angela Paxton. Plus, we gush over the latest beautiful thing coming out of our LGBTQIA community in Austin. We introduce our first guest co-host Briona Jenkins of Out Youth and interview immigration attorney Kate Lincoln-Goldfinch on the “national emergency” that is the Tr*mp administration.
