Biden Said Shots, Make It A Double
Biden held the first press conference of his presidency, yesterday, discussing the state of the nation’s vaccination effort, his views on the filibuster, and more. States are opening up vaccine eligibility, but there's an early pattern emerging of Black and Hispanic people getting smaller shares of vaccinations. The LAPD evicted an unhoused community that had set up tents in the Echo Park neighborhood of LA, and the department did it against the CDC’s guidance to pause encampment sweeps during the pandemic. The district’s city councilmember framed the action as part of an effort to rehabilitate the park, but members of the community showed up to support the people from being forced out. Plus, Jason Concepcion, host of Takeline and All Caps NBA joins us for headlines: no Zoom at the Oscars, the latest on the boat blocking the Suez Canal, and Amazon’s failed attempt to clapback.Show Links:California, Florida and other states will soon offer vaccines to all adultshttps://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/25/us/california-florida-vaccine.htmlFollow What A Day on Instagram at instagram.com/whatadayFor a transcript of this episode, please visit crooked.com/whataday.
