Thanks for joining the Three Martini Lunch today. Once again, Rob Long of National Review and Ricochet is sitting in for Jim. Today, we celebrate the resignation of socialist Bolivian dictator Evo Morales and notice how very sad the mainstream media and far left politicians are that Morales is no longer in power. They also note the retirement of New York GOP Rep. Peter King, and while they don’t really care if King retires. they see it as further evidence that things look bleak for Republicans in the suburbs in 2020. And they chronicle ABC and CBS acting like the Keystone Cops in apparently firing the wrong person for leaking the Amy Robach rant against ABC for spiking the Jeffrey Epstein story for three years. Rob is also shaking his head at the producer tearfully insisting she would never make public something as compelling as Robach’s comments.
All good martinis yesterday, and none today. But we have three doozies for you. First, Jim and Greg discuss the new Project Veritas expose, clearly showing reporter/anchor Amy Robach blasting her bosses off air for refusing to air her story exposing Jeffrey Epstein and his powerful connections for the past three years. They blast ABC for engaging in the same kind of cover-up NBC did for Harvey Weinstein. They also shudder at reports that as many as ten Americans were killed by drug cartels in Mexico, the latest evidence that cartels clearly control key parts of Mexico and may even be more powerful than the Mexican military. And they laugh at the painfully predictable reaction from liberals on Twitter and far-left columnists like USA Today’s Christine Brennan after some of the Washington Nationals said nice things about President Trump and one even wore a MAGA hat.
