    Today on Ring of Fire!

    Residents of East Palestine, Ohio are still reeling with the impacts of the recent train derailment and subsequent chemical spill in their town, and relief is virtually nowhere to be found. Politicians are busy trying to blame each other's Party for what happened, but these residents aren't interested in the blame game. Reporter Louis DeAngelis from Status Coup News will tell us what is really on residents' minds right now.

    Rupert Murdoch admitted in a deposition that he gave Jared Kushner access to President Biden's campaign ads BEFORE they were public - and this could have huge legal ramifications for the media mogul.

    Ron DeSantis admitted he got married at Disney World, creating an interesting wrinkle in his crusade against the House of Mouse.

    And Jim Jordan completely humiliated himself during a recent trip to the border - though he'll never admit it.

    Today on Ring of Fire!

    Republicans have made huge gains at the state level by promoting culture war issues, but can they recreate that success on the national level in 2024? Signs are pointing to NO.

    The Supreme Court could end up gutting Section 230 that provides immunity to internet platforms, and that could actually spell doom for independent media outlets.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene is attacking her former best friend Matt Gaetz for not going along with her "national divorce" plan.

    George Santos swears he can get his credibility back - but he may have bigger things to worry about.

    And Donald Trump can't seem to get the candidates that he endorsed in 2022 to return the favor for his presidential campaign.
