Listen to “Patrick Passes on 2020, Weekly Standard in Peril, Avenatti’s Exit” on Spreaker.

Daniel Foster of National Review Online and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news that former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick will not run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.  They also react to the new that the longtime conservative magazine “The Weekly Standard” may soon be shutting down.  And they’re deeply disappointed that Michael Avenatti won’t be around to cause chaos in the 2020 Democratic primary season, although making sure Avenatti has zero chance of becoming president is probably a good thing.
