Today we are all about the FACT-FACTS and not the Alternative facts that seems to be dominating all the media outlets these days. It is Spring Break and is Nnekay having the time of her life orjust crying at the blind auditions on The Voice? James has some questions for Nnekay: What is the origin of the term 'Becky" and what exactly is the Women's Boycott or rather #daywithoutawoman? Nnekay tried to explain the best she can. Both are APPALLED by the nonsense that has spewed from Ben Carson's dumb mouth. James wants to give him a pamphlet to educate him on slavery, meanwhile, Nnekay just wants him to float away to Island of AWAY. In James' korner, he tackles the truth about Gay Loneliness. He covers the article in the Huffington Post, the rebuttal, the truth to both sides and what falls in the middle. Nnekay's korner covers Immigration Raids currently being conducted by the ICE. She covers how we got to this point, some key facts, and what we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones. Remember ya'll The Max Fun Drive is coming up, and we hope you enjoy this episode!

So… Fast Lane. It wasn’t the best-received show in recent memory, but it did give us plenty to discuss as we head into the last few weeks before Wrestlemania.
Goldberg is now the WWE Universal Champion. But what does this mean for Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho? Does this take the wind out of their scheduled match, even if it is for the U.S. Title?
Plus, now we know what’s scheduled for the RAW and Smackdown women’s division. We’ll break down the positives and the negatives of the what’s on the docket.
And with Wrestlemania just under a month away, there’s sure to be plenty of great memories… and some bitter disappointments. We’ll break down the latter in this week’s main event.
The Three Count:
Mike put over Jack Gallagher’s headbutt.
Lindsey put over Daniel Bryan on Talking Smack
Danielle put over Ryback’s new book “Wake up It’s Feeding Time."
