For Lisa Durden and her panelists, its about holding the Biden Administration accountable. But, as we wait for the January 20, 2021 inauguration, will Donald Trump leave the White House for the Big House?
In Durden’s, Stop Brutalizing Black Bodies podcast, she explores Trumps multiple lawsuits alleging voter fraud, the recent Senate runoffs in Georgia, and the Biden-Harris win. As the days of Number 44 are les than two weeks away, the Dump Trump train picks up speed. The incoming Biden Administration has been working on a cabinet to deal with pressing issues in the nation and clean up the trail of carnage left by Trump Administration.
