BEN DOMENECH

As lawmakers on Capitol Hill continue to debate over America's role in Ukraine, the Middle East, and potentially Taiwan, Ben looks back at the Trump Administration and argues that despite the former president's sometimes inflammatory rhetoric on social media, the world was safer and more secure during his presidency.

Ben revisits a monologue shared after Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced that he will not seek re-election for his seat in 2024, but rather will be "traveling the country and speaking out, to see if there is an interest in creating a movement to mobilize the middle and bring Americans together."

FOX News Correspondent, Lucas Tomlinson, is live from Las Vegas as the President campaigns in Nevada, a state he won by only two points in 2020. However, more attention is on Vegas' newly minted football stadium for the big rematch between The Kansas City Chiefs and San Fransico 49ers.

Ben addresses the crisis giving historical background on how failures to address the issue across a multitude of administrations have led to the crisis the country faces today. Plus, using their own words, he delivers sharp criticism of the Biden Administration that is struggling to reframe the issue in wake of an election year.

Ahead of the New Hampshire primary Florida Governor Ron DeSantis suspended his presidential campaign this past weekend, endorsing former President Donald Trump and leveling harsh criticism of former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. On FOX & Friends this morning, former President Trump referred to his criticism of the Florida Governor was "water under the bridge."

Following former President Trump’s sweeping victory in the Iowa Caucuses, Ben overviews the impact this win will have on the remaining Republican presidential primary candidates and 2024 Presidential Election.

With just a week to go before the Iowa Caucuses and 15 days before the New Hampshire primaries, Ben gives historical background about the importance of the early states in shaping the outcome of the presidential race. He draws on primary history from Ronald Reagan's showdowns with his eventual Vice President, George H.W. Bush, as well as the battles between Bush, Dole, and various other Republican also-rans.

Does the Biden family corruption go straight to the top? House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) weighs in on developments concerning alleged bribery schemes between the Biden family and foreign entities.

As Monumental Sports & Entertainment CEO Ted Leonsis is poised to move both the Washington Wizards and Washington Capitals from Capital One Arena in downtown DC to a new arena in Northern Virginia, he has received criticism from local politicians. However, Ben refutes this pushback, and highlights D.C.'s crime crisis and the lack of competent leadership on the part of Mayor Bowser.

After a controversial, and what some are calling, antisemitic SNL cold open, depicting Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) grilling the Presidents of elite universities, Ben responds in kind, explaining why the show's live audience remained silent during this segment when usually cold opens are known to invoke laughter.
