Donald Trump’s Announcement and Our Response | Patio Politics - Ep. #2
Play • 1 hr 6 min

The web’s most dynamic (and handsome) father and son duo are at it again! In this episode, we reflect on the huge, earthshaking, history-making announcement for which we’ve all been waiting: Donald Trump will seek the presidency in 2024. 

Should he succeed in escaping the Republican Primary with the Party’s nomination, he’ll likely face down the dotard of Delaware, Scranton’s senescent son, Joseph R. Biden–the unintelligible incumbent against whom Trump battled, and to whom he lost, in 2020. 

We ask, is Trump’s nomination preordained? Is there no one (Ron DeSantis) by whom he might be challenged and, God willing, replaced? 

Join us as we talk about these and many other issues.
