Four black women get drunk, talk about the 2016 election

Led by Melissa Harris-Perry, the former MSNBC host, this is one of the best analyses I’ve come across on why the 2016 presidential election went the way it did. They provide historical context on why failed political strategies and misperceptions created by pundits  have led us to where we are today.

Among the observations:

  1. There is no gender gap. It’s a race gap.
  2. A woman should never use a political strategy used by a white man.
  3. A lot of men of color failed this country.
  4. Never watch cable news (I especially agree with this one).

(And by the end, three of the four women are pretty sauced.)
