Leslie begins the show with her 'Ripped from the Headlines' news segment.
Here are the stories that she gave her take on:
1. A selection of audio clips from today's inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris
2. AXIOS: "Voters favor Biden's climate policies, but few view issue as top priority"
3. NBC NEWS: "Some QAnon followers lose hope after Inauguration"
She's then joined by Moe Vela, who served in President Obama’s administration as the Director of Administration and Senior Advisor in the Office of then Vice President Joe Biden. The stint was the second White House appointment for Mr. Vela, who served as Chief Financial Officer and Senior Advisor on Hispanic Affairs for Vice President Al Gore. Mr. Vela holds the distinction of being the first Hispanic American and gay American to serve twice in a senior executive role in the White House.
Leslie and Moe discuss today's inauguration, and what happens to former President Trump and the Republican party after losing control of both the White House and the Senate.
