Our interview with Sara Thompson, the ONLY one to walk out on Sevier commissioner Warren Hurst’s homophobic, bigoted rant where he said there’s a “queer” running for president and white men are somehow losing their rights… while on a panel of all white men.
Holler co-founder Justin Kanew chatted with Comedian JOHN HENSON – former host of TALK SOUP and WIPEOUT! and current host of THE HALLOWEEN BAKING CHAMPIONSHIP on the Food Network. John is also a politically savvy tweeter who regularly engages with those who disagree with him. He sat down with us to diagnose the political infection our country is currently suffering from.

“Absolutely it was racist… you want folks to stay ignorant so they won’t hold you accountable. It was not a joke.”
She also said:
