It’s a special day at the Three Martini Lunch, as Jim and Greg celebrate eight years of the podcast by remembering some of their favorite moments. But first, they get welcome the news that Hillary Clinton is back in the public eye because she may be considering another White House run in 2020, which could turn the Democratic primaries into a long, ugly brawl. They also groan as President Trump applauds Montana Rep. Greg Gianforte for body-slamming a reporter last year. And they get a kick out of Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill demanding an investigation into the undercover videos showing her and her campaign staff admitting they need to hide McCaskill’s true positions and campaign contributions from voters
As they celebrate seven years of the Three Martini Lunch, Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America also applaud Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley for requesting testimony from the FBI informant behind the explosive reports of Russians engaging in bribes, kickbacks, and Clinton Foundation donations in order to get Hillary Clinton’s help in steering 20 percent of U.S. uranium to Russia. They also wonder just how deep the unmasking scandal goes, as former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power says she had nothing to do with the vast majority of the 260 unmasking requests done in her name. And they have fun with the absurd but viral contention among liberals on social media that someone else was pretending to be First Lady Melania Trump during a recent appearance with the president.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleased to see millennials far less excited about Hillary Clinton than they were about Barack Obama. They also shudder as many states reveal the massive Obamacare premium hikes in store for the coming year. They react to a DNC bus pouring human waste into a Georgia storm sewer. And they mark six years of the Three Martini Lunch with a look back at two of this year’s funniest moments.
