The Chad Prather Show

As America continues down the road to the midterm elections, Beto O’Rourke is trying to become the governor of Texas.

Minutemen Coffee owner Don Aman and author Scott Huesing rejoin the podcast to discuss the future of our divided America and how we can come together as one. President Biden continues to divide the nation by labeling people as "MAGA Republicans,” and people like Sasha Stone are tired of the name-calling coming from American leadership and social media. Can America ever come back together? If you haven’t heard by now, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sent a busload of immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, and the Left is losing its mind. Chad is here to point out the hypocrisy via a new character he created. Kenosha is back in the news after scumbag Joshua Ziminski was arrested on felonious charges. Why is this story important?
