We also cover the latest developments in Hunter Biden's tax evasion case, including the rejected plea deal and accusations of an "immunity dumpster fire."

Greene's Revenge Porn & DeSantis vs. Bud Light
The Cast addresses two contentious issues that have gripped the nation's attention: Marjorie Taylor Greene's involvement in revenge porn and DeSantis wanting to sue Bud Light about their Trans marketing campaign. They delve into the disturbing incident where Greene shared Hunter Biden's private photos during a congressional hearing, sparking heated debates on ethics, privacy rights, and the responsibilities of public figures.The episode also explores  DeSantis Suing Bud Light. First, he champions protesting Bud Light. Then, he wants to sue Bud Light for being protested and losing sales. Wasn't that his goal? Now, let's take his logic to another level. DeSantis believes that it was a breach of fiduciary duties to shareholders for Bud Light to target market to the transgender community because he characterises that community as being comprised of "radical social ideologies." However, and assuming this dubious theory is successful, wouldn't it subject every company to suit for target marketing groups that shareholders believe are comprised of "radical social ideologies" and therefore make it impossible for any business to target market?
