May 1, 2019

It’s May 1st. Today, we Skimm’d This:

  • Attorney General William Barr got grilled on Capitol Hill today. Democrats are asking about some letters he got from Robert Mueller - back when he said they weren’t talking.

  • An international athletics court ruled on how much is too much when it comes to testosterone in female elite athletes. We’ll explain why some people are calling it discrimination.

  • And actress Lucy Liu is kicking off Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month like the star she is.

theSkimm: Democrats on Capitol Hill had a lot of questions about the attorney general’s pen pal - Robert Mueller. South African elite runner Caster Semenya has been fighting against allegations that she has an unfair advantage because of her high testosterone levels. A court announced this morning that she lost that battle. Also on today’s show: who’s representing on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
