Ron DeSantis will make sure his election suppression sticks the next time.

Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is back to work as President of Brazil, ousting Trump of the Tropics Jair Bolsonaro. Bolsonaro promised he'd stage a coup if he lost and hasn’t gone back on that promise yet. Northern Ireland continues holding elections that solve nothing. The bravest people on earth are in Ukraine... both Ukrainians and Russians.
