CONVERSATION: The Orlando Trip That Nearly Took Down a KFC-Loving Brazilian President

  • by

We’re back for a new season and year, and the Gods have smiled on us with a series of increasingly ridiculous Florida-adjacent stories. We touched on former-Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s Florida winter that landed him in a hospital while his supporters in Brasilia stormed the capital. We also caught up on kitchen table issues — literally — talking about the GOP’s new fixation on gas stoves. Also, eggs, wtf. 

Our main story is a local one about how members of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party’s are attempting to coup chairman Robert Dempster over what amounts to little more than trivial bookkeeping errors, and the real history of inter-party animosity in a county that appears to be lurching hard to the right as a hub for global fascism.
