The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Show (11/16/2022):
3:05pm- The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has voted to impeach Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner—the vote was 107 to 85. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, it’s the first time in “nearly 30 years” the PA legislature has voted to remove an official from public office.
3:10pm- Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was re-elected to serve as Senate Minority Leader despite Sen. Rick Scott’s (R-FL) expressed interest in the position. The internal Republican vote was 37 to 10, according to the New York Times.
3:25pm- Is Michelle Obama planning a run for the presidency?
3:40pm- On Tuesday night, Donald Trump announced his intention to run for president in 2024—surprisingly, many television networks declined to carry coverage of the event. The announcement is unlikely to clear the Republican field and candidates like Gov. Ron DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are all still expected to challenge Trump for the Republican nomination.
3:45pm- During his 60-minute speech announcing his run for president, former President Donald Trump condemned the Biden Administration for being more worried about climate change than a potential escalation of war between Ukraine-Russia that could lead to the use of nuclear weapons.
4:05pm- Michael Torres—Deputy Editor of RealClearPennsylvania—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss his latest article, “PA GOP Leaders Point to Trump for Midterm Losses.” Torres spoke with multiple Republican officials throughout Pennsylvania following last week’s midterm elections—many suggested that former President Donald Trump’s fixation on the 2020 election led him to endorsing flawed Republican primary candidates that were unable to win general elections.
4:25pm- The Rich Zeoli Show has an abbreviated Friday broadcast due to sports. Rich has developed a reputation for not working on Fridays—but, by the end of November, Matt will have avoided working a full Friday for the entirety of the month! Rich shames him.
4:45pm- According to The Post Millennial, guidance from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) suggests that irreversible “gender affirming” procedures on children under 18 are acceptable—though, tattooing a child is an offense that is punishable by law.
5:05pm- In response to verbal barbs being hurled by Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis implored fellow Republicans to “chill out” and work together to ensure Hershel Walker (R) defeats incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock (D) in their U.S. Senate race in Georgia on December 6th.
5:15pm- Virtually reality expert and Oculus Founder Palmer Luckey has designed a new video game with the potential to kill its users.
5:30pm- State Representative Martina White joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss the Pennsylvania House of Representatives successfully voting to impeach Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner. The Articles of Impeachment will now be brought to the Pennsylvania State Senate. Krasner has denied that his prosecutorial strategies have resulted in unmitigated violence throughout Philadelphia—but, as White suggests, statistics and the personal experiences of Philadelphians contrast with his denial. Will Krasner’s impeachment serve as a warning to other soft-on-crime, progressive district attorneys across the country?
6:05pm- While speaking with Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX) at a Congressional hearing, Stanford Professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya described medical censorship during the COVID-19 pandemic as a “disaster” and suggested that it may have led to people being killed. Dr. Bhattacharya also noted that one of the primary sources of “misinformation” has been the federal government.
6:15pm- While speaking with Piers Morgan, Dr. Jordan Peterson condemned social media trolls for “polluting” the public discourse—suggesting that anonymous posters should be given their own section of platforms like Twitter, allowing for “real human beings” to have civilized discussions with one another.
6:35pm- Michael Donohue—former New Jersey Superior Court Judge & the Attorney representing Cape May County—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss enormous ocean windmill farms, consisting of hundreds of windmills, that may soon be built off the coast of New Jersey. Donahue notes that anyone who has objected to these farms is being labeled as “climate change deniers”—which just isn’t true. In fact, the environmental impact of windmill farms this large is still largely unknown. And why haven’t Cape May County voters been allowed to weigh-in on such an enormously consequential project?
6:55pm- Who Won Social Media?
