SHARE Today on C-SPAN: ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ weighs in on Iran

In today’s edition of “we watched C-SPAN so you don’t have to,” we bring you a segment from Washington Journal, where the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” called in during a segment on Iran nuclear negotiations.

Things started to derail quickly once “Jack Strickland” from Bel-Air got on the air. Strickland said he was from West Philadelphia.
