“We’ll be back next week with another installment of If I Did It; and we don’t know what we’ll be talking about yet because the PR mistakes have yet to be made.”

Welcome to another episode of IF THE SHOES FIT; a show where we solve salacious situations by stepping into the shoes of the shaken...the chagrined...the kerfuffed! This week: White Obama and Tariff Man. Join along while Alexei, Eugene and Nate to discuss PR issues in the non-MMA world!

Now let’s get to stepping!

Step into the shoes of the New York Times. Last week, you followed up on last year’s Nazi normalization profile piece with another one, live and in public, if you will, downplaying the danger of Gavin McInnes as a “former Brooklyn hipster turned far-right provocateur”. In wake of the backlash last year, for a piece you admitted was imperfect, why did you rinse, whitewash, and repeat? - 1:35 video, 35:43 audio

Step into the shoes of Beto O’Rourke. Is it better for your brand to stay local until making another run at Lyin’ Ted... or to accept your ascendancy as White Obama….the latest desperate Democratic Trump Derangement Syndrome 2020 candidate since Oprah, live and in public, if you will? - 5:20 video, 39:28 audio

Step into the shoes of Donald Trump. Since you are trending after referring to yourself as “Tariff Man, is it better for your brand and messaging to stick with it? - 11:56 video, 46:09 audio

REGULAR FEATURE: HEEL TURN - 17:24 video, 51:40 audio
SPECIAL FEATURE: #MISTYAF - 18:57 video, 53:13 audio
