Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey:
Today we’re joined by Josh Hammer, conservative commentator and opinion editor at Newsweek, to discuss the election, Trump’s candidacy for president, and the Respect for Marriage Act, among other new stories. We start with some post-election thoughts on candidate quality and election integrity and dive into what might have gone wrong in the campaign of a candidate like Blake Masters. We look at pro-lifers who are doing a great job furthering the cause and explain how Republican candidates could be doing better in the culture war. Then, we talk about Trump’s announcement last night that he’s running for president again and break down whether he might be able to win. We then look at DeSantis’ policies and speculate why a younger president might just be what we need. We talk about the Senate’s attempt to redefine marriage through the Respect for Marriage Act and discuss the Ukrainian missile that hit Poland yesterday and its implications.
