Weekly Roundup: Jesus Said Push Them in the River

Brad and Dan begin by discussing a bombshell report at the New York Times outlining Trump’s plans to completely transform the executive branch if he becomes president again. Brad analyzes how the playbook he and his team are using comes right from Orban’s takeover of Hungary’s government from within.

In the second segment Dan analyzes the reports that Ron DeSantis is trying to create his own personal militia in Florida that would answer only to him and be deployed in matters of border security, violent crime, and other issues. Brad likens this to Mussolini’s Black Shirts.

In the final segment both hosts discuss the horrific story that border security in Texas were ordered to push nursing children into the Rio Grande River.
