After a stunning and strange Daily Show interview with Al Madrigal, Tucson Unified School District school board member Michael Hicks reportedly responded via a Facebook post that was shared by Wenona Benally Baldenegro, who is running for Congress in Tucson. This is what Baldenegro posted on her personal Facebook page from a post that Hicks posted on his Facebook:


"As you know (and I know now) the Daily Show is a satirical news show and thus does not always represent the true remarks their guest make. 

I went on this show to talk about the Mexican American Studies (MAS) classes. What I believed to be would be a true interview ended up being nothing of the sort. It is unfortunate that the Daily show opted to amuse rather then inform."

We did reach out to Hicks this morning via email to request an interview.
