Guys, if you still have any free access to Vanity Fair, this article is the bomb (do the kids still say that?):
“All Roads Lead to Mar-a-Lago”: Inside the Fury and Fantasy of Donald Trump’s FloridaRoger Stone, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Ben Shapiro—they’ve all made their way to the Sunshine State, fueling and profiting from a tabloid culture that turns politics into spectacle, arguably Florida’s greatest export.
The basic premise is that Florida is tabloid America, and that’s where American (conservative) politics is now. Joe Hagan is a gifted writer and this sort of story is absolutely in his wheelhouse. Anyway, he makes a strong case and it is worthy reading.
