Tonight, on the Right Squad, targeting Trump supporters is a common thread these days, and now we’re learning that Special Counsel Jack Smith wanted information on anyone who “favorited” or “retweeted” posts made by Former President Trump.
And, so far only one American has been released in the Israel-Hamas war as the truce is expected to expire today. This comes as the Biden administration is reportedly pressuring Israel on how to approach the war once it continues. A move Breitbart reports will ultimately leave Hamas in power.
Chicago’s Progressive Mayor, Brandon Johnson taking aim at Republicans while speaking about the migrant crisis in his city. Johnson, blamed “right-wing extremism” and made claims that the Republican party is “still mad that a black man is free in this country…”
Plus 2024 and the continued race for second place Is heating up. Ron DeSantis is bringing in an adviser from Tim Scott’s defunct campaign, and a Super Pac supporting Nikki Haley is looking to court independent voters to defeat Donald Trump. But the latest RCP average of polls show the former President sitting at more than 61% support.
Also, Forbes is out with its 30 under 30 lists, and on the social media list is Trans influencer, and Bud Light destroyer, Dylan Mulvaney.
And finally, a Trum fundraising committee is out with a cheeky new piece of merch. Holiday wrapping paper that features Trump’s mugshot topped with a Santa cap.


Chris Plante and his “THE RIGHT SQUAD” are the most interesting, informative, and funny group of talking heads in the world!

It’s a big claim. But it’s true!

Few TV news hosts can claim the bona fides of Chris Plante.

Award-winning news correspondent. Top-rated syndicated radio host. A news analyst grounded in the real world – with a flair for humor.

During the day, Chris hosts the popular “Chris Plante Show” radio program from Washington, D.C.’s powerhouse WMAL – and syndicated by Westwood One across the nation.

And every weekday night he’s at Newsmax’s D.C. studio leading “THE RIGHT SQUAD.”

On his show he demands fact-based news, fact-based opinion, and even fact-based laughs!

For over a decade Chris served as a CNN correspondent reporting from all across the globe while covering the Pentagon, with a focus on the military, national security, and intelligence.

Chris received the Edward R. Murrow Award for his outstanding coverage from the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

He is no stranger to war. He covered Operation Desert Shield following Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, running news pool operations from Saudi Arabia.

In his role as a reporter and producer, Chris has piloted fighter jets, flown off of aircraft carriers, driven nuclear-powered warships, and jumped out of perfectly good airplanes.

He has covered everything from presidential inaugurations to the everyday politics of Washington, D.C., and even street crime.

Old school journalism is in Chris’ blood. The son of famed CBS correspondent Bill Plante, he’s the third generation of his family to thrive in radio and television news.

And he may be the only Washington journalist to have been awarded both the Edward R. Murrow Award and the Reed Irvine Accuracy In Media Award for Excellence in Journalism.

Chris lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife.
