On this Friday edition of Bernie & Sid in the Morning, Sid goes solo as Bernie takes the day to recuperate. Dr. Anthony Fauci continues to use the Omicron variant as a fear mongering tool agains the American people. His utter lies and repeated mistakes over the course of this pandemic have costed countless American lives, and Sid makes this point repeatedly during today’s program. Sid also offers the listening audience a number of anecdotes from last night’s menorah lighting ceremony that he participated in with Red Apple Media owner and his friend, John Catsimatidis. After the lighting of the menorah, Sid helped the queen of Red Apple Media, Margo Catsimatidis, celebrate her birthday with other esteemed guests at a lavish dinner party. Other news of the day included Janet Yellen retiring the word “transitory,” Joe Biden and Jen Psaki speaking on the possibility of a government shut down, Rand Paul continuing his non-stop evisceration of Dr. Fauci, Ron Desantis ripping the DOJ and FBI, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred giving an update on the current lockout, and former Notre Dame Football Head Coach Brian Kelly making his first appearance at his new home, LSU. Dr. Marc Siegel also joins the program to discuss the severity of the Omicron variant and how Sid can get back to 100%. No Peerless Boilers Beat Bernie Contest because of Bernie’s absences, but make sure you don’t miss out on today’s installment of Lidia Reports.
