Show Details for the week of November 14th, 2016

Posted on


On The Monitor this week:

  • A somewhat lengthy take on the result of the U.S. Presidential election
  • Maria Páez Victor on the situation in Venezuela

The opening monologue references a couple of things for you to consider. First is the number of people who voted. Second is that there are some underlying factors that impacted who got to vote. Third is some of the reasons behind a significant number of the votes Trump got (NSFW).
