Ep20: Carl Lewis Brings it to Jerome
Five-time Olympian Carl Lewis, once the world’s fastest human, slowed down for a bit to join “Bring it to Jerome” from his office at the University of Houston, where he has been an assistant track coach for three years. Never afraid to speak his mind, Lewis weighed in on a variety of subjects, including his role in the professionalism of track and field, his pursuit of excellence in the sport and his brief foray into politics, as a candidate for New Jersey state legislature. It was the latter topic that got Lewis going midway through the episode, as he discussed the mess that is politics today, the challenges he faced in his home state – where opponents questioned his residency – and the “culture of mediocrity” that he believes has led to the U.S. having “a crazy person in the white House.” Lewis on Donald Trump: “Everyone said ‘I don't care how stupid he is, I don’t care how crazy it is, I don't care how wacky he is, I don't care how misogynistic he is, I don't care how disrespectful he is, but I think he's going to make me feel happy.’ Well guess what … you see what we have now?” And Lewis was just getting started.
