Dana Lashes of Sir Truth Podcast sponsored by Kel-Tec. It's his life mission to make bad decisions. It's time for Florida Man. All right, so first up, I mean, I didn't know that you could get a DUI on a bicycle. Do you know that?

I didn't know that either. I didn't know you could get a DUI on a bicycle but apparently you can. This Florida Man was pedaling while intoxicated. And he got in trouble on Friday, April 14th. Sanibel. Yeah, actually, that's a good, yeah, well, DW, yeah. It's an arrest on Florida's Sanibel Island.

There's a lot of debate now apparently about this. There was a guy on a bike. He was traveling on the side of the road, Ray. He had no front or rear light, police said. He was arrested for DUI, taken to Lee County Jail. He's 56.

He was visiting from Tennessee. And DUI while biking is a legitimate charge in Florida. They said the statute covers it. It's applicable to bicycles.

Yeah, I didn't know that. I mean, if you're on a bicycle, I mean, I guess, you know, if you're interfering in the roadway, but what if you're like on a bike path or something? I don't know. Like, can you get a DUI on a horse too?

Even though the horse is the one who can really like is like the designated? Yeah, yeah. I mean, I don't know. I'm just we're I don't know about this one.

I really don't. I'm just not, you know, let's see this. Nope, I can't. No, I can't do that one.

I can't. But this Florida man. There's a Florida man who mistakenly tried to rob an office building in Lake County, Florida. He thought it was a bank. And it wasn't.

Didn't work out well for him. It was on Fox 35. Stick with us. We got third hour on the way. Welcome back. Word has just come down that Fox News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part WAVES and thank you for your service to the Network and Hospital Fire contributor. WAVES. We'll talk more about it tomorrow because but we wanted to make sure that we let you know what was going on.

Well, can I can I ask the audience if they'll help me do something? Come on, folks. No, no, no, no. I think anyone likes to celebrate the demise of someone's career. But he's responsible for the demise of someone's career. Yeah.

But but he is responsible for the degradation of the population that we see somewhat of our democracy in this country. Oh my gosh. And I just think he's a faithful person. Look at God. Oh my goodness. Yes, look at God. Well, I see him as the poor Planned Parenthood. Oh, yes, Jesus. He's been the biggest purveyor of pro-Russian coffee. Yeah.

So it's a good day for me. I find it hysterical that Nepo baby Alyssa Farah, whose dad is like one of the biggest conspiracy theorists and conservative publishing, and who ran around spreading rumors about the demise of my former and late boss and dear friend and mentor. I just find it miracle that like these are the type of people who I mean, they're celebrating. It's the talentless thinking that they have a W over people with talent. Welcome back to the show, Dana Lash here. And as I said, not a single one of those those females could could helm a talk show by themselves.

Not a single one. It takes five of them and they can barely do what they do with five of them out there. And that's and that's with a team of producers and everything feeding them everything that they need to do.

So all they have to do is just make sure that they they spread the lip gloss. That's it. No, it's not it's not mean if it's true. Not mean if it's true.

So no, no, no, no. Oh my gosh. Anyway, Don Lemon is also out. Do you guys hear this? Yeah, Don Lemon is out at CNN. He blasted the network for quote, not having the decency to tell him. He said, quote, I was informed this morning by my agent that I've been terminated by CNN. Now full disclosure, Don and I have the same agent.

He says I'm stunned. After 17 years at CNN, I would have thought that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly. At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work that I've loved at the network.

It's clear that there's some larger issues at play. And with that said, he says I want to thank my colleagues and the many teams I've worked with for an incredible run, blah, blah, blah. I have always thought that he was not in. He is not bad at broadcasting. Even though I disagree with him a lot. I've always gotten along with him even though he's wrong on everything.

Except his like of me. There's where he's correct. But I always felt that being in the hard news environment was not where he should be. He was more news driven. That that is kind of incompatible with the I think the type of format that he was doing. And I think that was his first downfall.

His second downfall is that he couldn't read the room. They were putting him on with younger females because he wasn't keeping the audience. And so they were trying to put him with people that like for like some of some of the people that they were pairing him with were more news driven, more hard news driven. And they were less editorial.

They didn't have huge personalities, but they were news driven. So clearly, they were trying to offset that which Lemon lacked by adding that component when they were having him, you know, do this this morning program. And it just and he clashed with them because, and I've seen this happen at networks before you put like a guy that has seniority with younger women who do not have seniority and who are brand new there. And there doesn't it doesn't it's not a sexism issue. That's where I do take a look at, you know, the one remark that he did make, where he was talking about a little older women.

Yeah, that was misogyny. But by and large, it's an it's an issue of ego. And it's an issue of this person feels and they do have more seniority and they're being made to run against someone that has less seniority. And there's a there's a bit there's a lot of friction there.

And that was more I think what his situation was. And I've like I've said, I've seen it happen elsewhere. And it just never works.

Whenever I see that format happen, it never works. The only time that's actually ever worked was Regis Philbin. And what's her face? The blonde who's? Yeah, what's her name?

Kelly Ripa. Yeah, yeah, yeah, that I think that's the only time I've ever seen that that dynamic work. But that's because Regis Philbin and we had a mutual friend. He was he I mean, he was old school, though. He was an older dude, but he was in that he was way old school. He's been involved in that he was involved in that for so long, that he was a total pro, total pro about it. And he knew that the show must go on, you put any and you put that first and you do your job.

And, and so he was up, you know, got paired with this, you know, lot younger, energetic woman. And he really he just that was where it wasn't affected. But that's because he was a consummate pro. I mean, he really was like the old school type of TV host broadcaster.

And that's where you can tell the reels from the fakes. So that's kind of I think, the dynamic with him, they had him in a bad format. He had to do something like HBO or something like that. Because I don't think that CNN, I just don't think that that's the format that works for him.

It's kind of weird. So I look at it, I don't I'm kind of ambivalent about him. Like I thought the remark that he had was misogynistic, but I never looked at Don Lemon as it were his discourse as any sort of threat to an agenda that I wanted to pass. I don't think it merited enough of a threat. I mean, I just think he was kind of milk toast.

I mean, he's a he's your run of the mill lefty, right? I mean, what was there's nothing I don't find anything threatening about his comments. I don't find anything challenging about them. I think that's probably the better word to use. I just he's not challenging.

Is that I think that seems more accurate to say. And now all of the news you would probably miss. It's time for Dana's quick five. I have to tell you guys, I took a drink of soda on break, like 30 seconds we're coming back in right and Kane finds the soundbite from Jake Sullivan, which we're gonna play coming up and he just lost his mind. And it was so funny that I actually snorted soda and it really hurts. So my eyes are watering, my nose is burning. Oh my gosh, he was so it he's like gonna fit. He's out of juice.

He's out of his juice. So alright, here's a here's the headline. Face masks may raise the risk of stillbirths. text testicular dysfunction, cognitive decline due to build up of carbon dioxide.

So don't wear your face mask because you're gonna have stillbirth small balls and you're gonna get dumb. Science with that legit. They actually studied this. I'm gonna they it was the co2 mask review.

And you done you trap the carbon and then you inhale it and you keep inhaling it. It was German researchers. And they it was a pretty I mean, they studied a pretty large amount of people. So I'm gonna I'm gonna put that you got to read this.

I'm gonna put this in your prep link because you're gonna want you're gonna want to have this. That's a very sick. It's very interesting. The US Army. Here's the AP headline. Unprepared for long war US Army is under the gun to make more ammo.

Oh, but you know, they have all these restrictions and stuff that the administration has been wanting to pass. This comes out this from the Associated Press. They said that they can't US can't produce enough ammo for Ukraine, the Scranton army ammunition plant, which is part of this like multi billion dollar Pentagon plan to modernize and accelerate ammo production because it's very dangerous actually to make it. They said that now you have to support Ukraine, but you have to have something in case there's any kind of, you know, frogginess with China.

But that's just one of two sites that make the steel bodies for the how it's around that's needed in Ukraine. So now everyone's like, Oh, well, we got it. We need more ammo. So they have to put out a lot more.

There's a I know there's a lot of concerns here with that. A massive fire broke out at a Disneyland Park, a dragon prop caught fire. It looked actually amazing, but it wasn't supposed to happen. It was at the Tom Sawyer Island and the phantasmic nighttime water show. And it engulfed Maleficent's dragon prop, which I got to be real, it looks really cool in the video, but that wasn't intended. So that was dangerous. They had to they had to figure that all out.

So that's Yeah, it's very, you know, tough thing. Several men were arrested for selling laughing gas in downtown Austin. This is totally like what?

What's the the thing? Taylor shared anything with Stallone and, and he's in Oklahoma, and they were selling laughing gas on the side King of King of Tulsa, Tulsa King. That's great. Tulsa Kings great. But this sounds totally like a plot from that show. But these men were arrested for illegally selling it in downtown Austin nitrous oxide.

Hey, how about a little baseball, climate change and home runs? That's right. Home run weather, heat and humidity reduce air density so baseballs can fly further.

Well, guess what? They have been taken off. The baseball season has warmed over two degrees since 1970. Each two degree of warming adds about 95 runs per season.

That's right. That's why we've been seeing all these home runs. Look at this top 10 ballparks that see more home. We'll see more home runs with climate change and home runs. Climate change from Baltimore, Washington, St. Louis, Detroit, Chicago, Denver, even Minneapolis. This is what that makes me feel like. This is a visual representation for people watching the simulcast of the radio program channel 347 DirecTV and elsewhere. It's ridiculous.

First off, you know what? Basketball scores according to Sportskeeda have also increased. Wow, like, basketball scores have increased.

Every sport has seen an increase in scoring. No, you know, probably what it is. It's probably because of a number of things that includes athleticism and training. And I mean, you know, it's just possible and I know this is you're not supposed to do this when talking about science considering other possibilities that may not confirm your bias. But there just may be other factors involved in this that contribute.

Shocker news alert. I don't know. No, it's because the sun is making it hotter, Cain.

Yes, not steroids or HGH or better training or nutrition. It's totally it's yeah, the climate. Mm hmm. That's right. It's the climate.

The weather. I mean, literally everything has all scoring everything has there's no I mean, that's just that's like saying this is his logic. Well, all serial killers wear shoes.

Therefore, shoes cause serial killing. Right. Guess what? Hitler drank water.

Are you drinking water? You Nazi Nazi. See? Same thing. So exact same logic. Right. You should dehydrate yourself for the cause.

Otherwise, you love Hitler, Hitler lover. Right. You know, people who beat seals, they probably also like water.

So you could be like a seal abuser. It's crazy. Oh, my gosh, we live in the stupidest era ever. Why? I mean, the fact that it coincides with the greatest.

I mean, ability to to get all the information that you want. And yet we live in the dumbest time ever. We I mean, I honestly think that if a natural disaster is going to happen, we're going to have to go back to the safe for a handful of people. Nobody would know what to do. Say for us. Nobody else would know what to do. Right.

I mean, I think everybody would lose their it would be like idiocracy. So what plants grave. Alright, coming up in our second hour a whole bunch of stuff. I got wokery. We get the latest with Jack the dripper. Actually more think of it. It's not that bad of a name. It really isn't right. It's better than Sir Pimps a lot.
