We'll delve into our DeSantis file, exploring where the Governor is right now politically, and how you feel about him making a presidential run in 2024. We'll focus on a new poll, which shows exactly what I predicted, that the pandemic and the controversy over how he's handling it are taking a toll on DeSantis' popularity. In fact, he's down 14 points from the previous poll, although his support among Republicans, while down a bit, is still very strong.
This week, as we'll hear on the show, the Governor dismissed talk about him running for President in 2024 as "nonsense". Nevertheless, people are talking about it, and we'll talk about it, too.
We'll also invite you to vote in our one word texting poll: Do you want Governor DeSantis to run for President in 2024? Text "Yes" or text "No" to 23680.
We'll have a wide ranging Florida COVID update, including:
*Latest stats show Florida cases going down, but deaths going up.
*A judge has just ruled against DeSantis again and affirmed the right of school districts to impose mask mandates for students. The Governor quickly appealed, and clearly this battle is headed for the Florida Supreme Court where it's anyone's guess what they will ultimately decide.
*I'll read a Central Florida 7th grader's letter appealing to the unvaccinated to get their shots, so we can get control of the pandemic and, as the student writes, "So I can get my life back!"
Our Afghanistan update focuses on the Americans still trapped, and specifically on those on board those planes chartered by heroic retired special ops guys, We'll hear Secretary of State Antony Blinken admit the Taliban's preventing them from taking off. we'll also hear him criticize these private efforts to get people out of Afghanistan before they are enslaved or slaughtered by the Taliban terrorists! And, wait til you hear Biden's press secretary Jen Psaki try and defend keeping those rescue planes on the ground! Outrageous! Indefensible!
In addition, we'll report on the Communist Chinese cozying up to the Taliban, blowing off John Kerry's lame climate change pitch, and the Chi Com's plans to take over our abandoned Bagram Air Force base. As I've said, it's B.A.D. ! It's Biden's Afghanistan Debacle with no end in sight!
