“Where the hell is governor Ron DeSantis? That is the question that many Florida residents want answered as the state gets ravaged by the Omicron variant. DeSantis has not given any public addresses in the past 2 weeks, and the most recent tweets from his communications director have been lies about how well the state is doing on the COVID front. One Florida mayor is calling the governor out, and Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

“A military base shopping center is under fire after a retailer was selling Trump figurines as Christmas ornaments, but the Trump-figure was holding a “Let’s Go Brandon” sign. By the time the complaints rolled in, the retailer’s contract was up and they were already gone, probably off to grift another group of low-information voters who have a seething hatred of the sitting President. Farron Cousins discusses this.

“Democratic Senator Joe Manchin has allegedly been telling his colleagues behind the scenes that one of the reasons he opposes the extended child tax credit payments is because he thinks low income Americans will just spend the money on drugs. This is an age-old Republican talking point, and it is completely divorced from reality – in addition to being shockingly cruel. Farron Cousins explains what people REALLY spent the money on.

“A Venezuelan businessman has filed a lawsuit against Sidney Powell, Fox News, and Lou Dobbs, alleging that the three of them roped him into their ridiculous conspiracies about Venezuela somehow rigging the 2020 election. This was one of the very first election conspiracy theories from 2020, but it sadly wasn’t the last. And now, those responsible for dragging the man’s name into this could be forced to pay up.

“Let’s Go Brandon” Troll Already Considering Running For Office…

“The man who proudly said “Let’s go Brandon” to President Joe Biden during a Christmas Eve phone call is apparently loving his newfound fame among the Right, and he said this week that he is “praying” over whether he should run for office. He has no credentials to speak of, other than being a conspiracy-spewing lapdog, which would probably mean he’d easily capture the MAGA vote. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

Lauren Boebert Admits She’s Clueless About What The Government Does…

“Representative Lauren Boebert sent out an exceptionally idiotic tweet this week where she falsely claimed that the government’s job is NOT to save people’s lives, but instead their job is to stay OUT of people’s lives. This statement would probably sound better coming from a Party that wasn’t obsessed with people’s daily lives and choices, as the Republicans are, but it is also blatantly false. Farron Cousins explains what the role of the government is supposed to be.

This lawsuit actually happened a year ago, but somehow managed to fly under the radar for a full year.
