On the evening of October 18, 2015, Clay Aiken was a guest panelist on the Al Jazeera America show called The Third Rail. This week, the show was 30 minutes long and the moderator was Ali Velshi.
It was nice to see all the publicity that The Third Rail put on twitter. The following are some of the tweets:
Third RailVerified account @AJAMThirdRail
.@clayaiken talks to @AliVelshi about kids defending themselves from gun threats in school.
Even Clay tweeted:
Get to your TVs right NOW to see me on @AJAMThirdRail with@AliVelshi
I was able to see the show. The panel took about 1/2 the time of the show. The panel discussed two topics:
- Guns in schools and training small kids to fight back.
- In-state college tuition for undocumented immigrants & “dreamers”.
Clay had done his homework. He had facts and information that he shared when appropriate. He came across as well-informed, articulate, and self-assured. Anyone who saw him would think he was a pro with many years of experience in this field.
Unfortunately, I have not found any new pictures or videos of the program. Hopefully, some will be available later today.
I hope we will have many more opportunities to see and hear Clay as he talks about our complicated world. – in this role.
Did you see Clay on The Third Rail?
Be sure and check back to see if we get any more news, pictures or videos of the show!!
