Episode details

Welcome to our hundredth episode with commentator Farron Cousins, our guide to Florida politics and how it’s shaping the nation. The big question is whether the rise of DeSantis means the collapse of Trump. We discuss how the two major right-wing figures are pitted against one another for future presidential campaigns. Perhaps the greatest plus for Trump would be the major three-ring circus in the mainstream media if he were to announce his candidacy: what we learned from 2016 is that outlets like CNN, despite their professed opposition to Trump’s politics, were willing to give him billions of dollars’ worth of free media by covering his every move during the presidential campaign season. The idea that liberal media might do more for Trump than anyone else by feeding into his plays for national attention isn’t even galling anymore — we’ve seen this before.

From smaller questions (will Trump return to Twitter?) to other speculations for the 2024 presidential elections (and who will lead the Warmongers’ Caucus), we’ve got a packed show for you tonight, and we hope you enjoy. Remember that you can listen to this episode as a podcast when it’s released tomorrow on Spotify, Substack, Apple Podcasts, Pandora, and more.
