In this episode of The Bald Brad Show, Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis called on Congress to take action if Apple Inc. moved to take Twitter off the app store, saying that would constitute a “raw exercise of monopolistic power.” DeSantis was discussing infrastructure projects in Duval County, Florida, when he pivoted to address several other issues — beginning with the continued COVID-related lockdowns and protests in China. DeSantis began by citing reports that Apple was not allowing protesters to use the AirDrop function to communicate, arguing that was effectively “giving aid and comfort to the CCP.” Furthermore, Twitter CEO Elon Musk's Diet Coke tweet sparked strong reactions from liberals in the media on Tuesday, who found a deeper meaning behind the billionaire's favorite drink. Musk tweeted out a picture of his bedside table with several Diet Coke cans, a pair of prop guns, a Buddhist symbol and a painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware River. But for some on the left, the soda was the most controversial item. Moreover, Labor unions rebuked President Joe Biden on Tuesday for requesting that Congress prevent a looming rail strike. The commander-in-chief said in a Monday evening statement that the possible work freeze, which could begin as soon as December 9, would “devastate” the economy ahead of the holiday season. “As a proud pro-labor President, I am reluctant to override the ratification procedures and the views of those who voted against the agreement,” he remarked. “But in this case — where the economic impact of a shutdown would hurt millions of other working people and families — I believe Congress must use its powers to adopt this deal.”
