In this episode of The Spectacle, Scott McKay and Melissa Mackenzie discuss former President Donald Trump’s Ron DeSantis obsession. This leads to a discussion about Republicans who obsess over other Republicans instead of focusing on the obvious failures of Democrats like President Joe Biden.
Why don’t Republicans have daily press conferences that bring Biden’s many nefarious deeds to light? Why don’t people know about the $1 million that a Chinese business paid to Hunter Biden for doing nothing?
Why do Republicans keep propping up haters and losers? And why is Donald Trump the worst offender of this? For example, why did he support Ronna McDaniel, the leader of the Republican National Committee and a loser, while rhetorically harassing a winner like Ron DeSantis?
Along with these questions, Scott and Melissa tackle the phenomenon of tidying guru Marie Kondo and her sudden embrace of messiness now that she has a third child.
The podcast ends on a hopeful note: education is being transformed. It might be a fight, but it’s one worth having.
