Joe Biden Called Out for Being Creepy, & Shell Gets Woke

It’s been another busy news week around the world, but WHIP’s Crackdown is here to bring you up to speed – at least to the extent we can under 15 minutes. Royal Dutch Shell is worried about climate change, more subpoenas are being issued in Washington after an employee blew the whistle on security concerns, and Joe Biden is facing some backlash following multiple allegations of inappropriate behavior. Plus, Temple will implement a tobacco-free policy for the Fall 2019 semester, and BecomingTU came out on top after a spicy Temple Student Government election season.
