Lebron James vs. Chick-Fil-A: A Tale of Two Petitions

A new petition is making the rounds asking President Donald Trump to replace Betsy DeVos as United States Secretary of Education with former NBA superstar Lebron James. Why? Because James is getting praised for his highly-publicized school in Ohio, which apparently makes him far more qualified for the job.

The petition has garnered approximately 20,000 signatures thus far.

Compare that with another petition that's gaining traction this week to the tune of 50,000 signatures, asking Chick-Fil-A to open on U.S. military bases.

WIBC host Tony Katz discusses what listeners can glean from the apparent interest in fast food over the petition to appoint a former basketball great to Secretary of Education in the following clip:
