Ep. 613 Vivek Ramaswamy’s 9/11 Spin, Trump’s Arrest Theater, and Prigozhin Dies in Plane Crash, with ‘The Fifth Column’

Megyn begins the show discussing the truth about the offensive comments 2024 GOP presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy made about September 11 and flirting with “trutherism,” the “irritating” way he keeps blaming the media for things he said, how he should have handled it, and more. Then, the hosts of The Fifth Column – Kmele Foster, Michael Moynihan, and Matt Welch – join to discuss how Republican voters may react to Ramaswamy’s 9/11 comments, conspiracy theories growing on the left and right, how some elements of COVID-19 turning out to be true is leading to more conspiracy thinking, cringe videos showing him working out and playing tennis shirtless, if a millennial candidate should be in office, whether the GOP debate is Gov. Ron DeSantis’ “time to shine” in former President Donald Trump’s absence, if Chris Christie will be declared the winner by the media, Trump trying to upstage the debate by getting arrested, the breaking news that head of Wagner Group Yevgeny Prigozhin has died in a plane crash in Russia, whether there’s a chance this could be accidental or if this was Russian President Vladimir Putin enacting his revenge and shooting down the plane, and more.
