it regularly. IIRC though, her show was cancelled by something she said on another show..."The Breakfast Club" with Charlamagne Da God and other hosts. She said "Florida literally looks like the dick of the country, so let's get rid of Florida."

And a little laters she said,
"Seriously, let's castrate Florida..."

She was kinda prodded to say that last part by Charlamagne Da God. That was bad judgment as right wing long knives were out to get her and that casually tossed off remark was too castration-adjacent to DeSantis. I think she got a little carried away on the show. She probably should've said "penis" too instead of dick.

Sorry to see her go.

Good observation. You're probably right. brush Dec 2022 #23
Also she was just promoted a year or two ago, so i think she would have less leverage in the room. Yoyoyo77 Dec 2022 #24
