NC Mom Lectures Politically Opposed Sons: Agree On Autism

December 16, 2014

Political pundits Dallas and Brad Woodhouse who argue from opposite sides of the political spectrum were told yesterday to meet in the middle when it comes to autism. The order came from their mother Joy in a viewer phone call as the two were talking politics on C-SPAN's Washington Journal.

"Oh god, it's mom," said Dallas Woodhouse, the Republican, as their mother related their bickering over Thanksgiving and pleaded for a "peaceful Christmas."

Asked by the moderator where she landed on the political spectrum, Joy Woodhouse said said she was a "one-issue person" driven by concern for her grandson with autism.
