Kojo and Tom Sherwood chat with D.C Council Chairman Phil Mendelson and Fairfax County Supervisor John Cook.
Jeff Giesea says he isn’t what most people expect a Trump supporter to be – he’s a gay, Stanford-educated resident of a city Hillary Clinton carried by over 90 percent.

He’s organizing an inauguration “DeploraBall,” and he joins us to talk about the current political climate, and why he thinks those on the left and right are coming from a place of good intentions.
