Anga, Mets, Brad Kavanagh discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition


In record numbers. And that changes something that's always been broken in this country, doesn't fix it. But we have always lived with this promise that we live in a Representative democracy. But in fact, you know, our government institutions have not represented us, and they still don't just you know, it's still it's still percent. Don't worry. We're not anywhere close to actual representation. But.
