Weekly Roundup: J6 3 years Later + 14th Amendment Originalism

More Americans think J6 was not big deal than ever. Why? Because the myth of the Big Lie has festered in the three years since the Insurrection, creating an alternate reality in which Donald Trump is not responsible for what happened – and the event wasn’t that violent. Brad and Dan break down the statistics and take stock of where we are 3 years from the riot and less than a year from the election.

In the second segment, Dan provides an in-depth look at the formation of the 14th amendment, pointing out how its framers explicitly stated that it covered the presidency. It’s an originalist argument set to appear before an originalist-dominated SCOTUS in February.

In the final segment the hosts discuss trans care in Ohio and why the governor vetoed a ban on it. It’s a surprising development worth digging into.
