About this Episode

During an appearance at a Florida megachurch, President (and newly minted full-time Florida Man) Donald Trump is defending his decision to kill an Iranian general with a drone strike. He also says the Democrats who impeached him are crazy.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— A Florida law that says the state can remove local officials for passing any law that limits gun rights is under fire at a Tallahassee appeals court.

— Opponents of the Energy Choice amendment (which might appear on the ballot in November) are asking the Secretary of State to disqualify thousands of signatures collected by the group. They claim those who signed those petitions were deceived and now oppose the amendment.

— Happy New Year to Florida panthers … or what’s left of them. A vehicle in Hendry County struck and killed one of the official state animals. The body was found one day after New Year’s.

— And a tribute to the 33-year-old Florida Man who took a punch from Rod Stewart while working security at a private event at The Breakers in Palm Beach. The 74-year-old rock star (and his oldest son Sean) face charges of simple battery.
