Episode #72: How Republicans Could Blow the Midterms

Download this episode

Jacob and Eric react to a hilarious clip of America First commentator Ned Ryun dunking on a Fox News panel as he explains how monkeypox, the WHO’s latest global health emergency, can only be caught by gay people. They then take a closer look at Rupert Murdoch’s systematic efforts to turn mainstream conservative media – from Fox News to the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post – against President Trump ahead of the 2024 election. Then, for a new era in The Right Take, Jacob and Eric begin a months-long focus for the podcast that will turn exclusively to the topic of elections, from now until the November midterms. For the first episode of this elections-based theme, they discuss a very big question: Could the GOP possibly become so complacent that they blow their chances at winning back both houses of Congress?
