About this Episode

On New Year’s Day a dramatic scene unfolded on the doorstep of Saturday Night on the Circle Host Ethan Hatcher's home, a Wild-West styled gun battle in the streets with more than two dozen shots being fired in a frenzied duel lasting several minutes. This week on the show Ethan talks about Colorado Governor Jared Polis decision to reduce truck driver Rogel Aguilera-Moderos's sentence from 110 years down to 10 for a fatal car crash in 2019, also pardoning more than 1,000 inmates for minor offenses. Senator Ted Cruz spoke on his podcast "Verdict" speculated that Republicans would impeach President Biden for dereliction of duty on the Border Crisis should they retake the House of Representatives, cementing impeachment as little more than a partisan cudgel. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki responds to his remarks with an equally snarky reply. CNN finds time to mock New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her bizarre assertion critics noting her hypocrisy for vacationing in mandate-free Florida were "sexualizing" her and "obsessed" with her boyfriend’s feet. Mary Katherine Ham roundly mocked the representative for finally bringing to light the "plight of the super hot." Many more topics discussed on a dynamic edition of Saturday Night on the Circle, listen to the full episode for the rundown on a new year in news and politics!
