Brad and Dan begin by discussing the recent news that Ron DeSantis and his administration rejected the AP course in African American studies course in Florida high schools, because in their estimation it holds no “educational value” and does not align with the historical record. This leads to a longer examination of the history of MLK Jr.’s holiday and the White Christian nationalists who have always opposed it.
In the second segment Dan lays out the newly opened rift between evangelicals and Trump. Both hosts wonder if this could spell a decisive blow to Trump’s political viability – and what it means for the GOP moving forward.
In the final segment, Brad goes through the gas stove culture war discussion and explains why culture was are often both silly and incredibly important.
