In our 60th episode, we look at Trump's highest-stakes endorsement of 2022, as he wades into the Ohio senate primary. We also examine how the DNC's alleged "people of color" coalition is sowing the seeds of its own destruction. For our main topic, we discuss Elon Musk's offer to buy Twitter in what may be the biggest Wall Street showdown of our lifetimes. How far will the Twitter board go to keep him from restoring Twitter to its former glory, and is Musk up against more than woke capital here?
