Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are generally encouraged by reports suggesting CIA Director Mike Pompeo may soon replace Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State and Sen. Tom Cotton would be tapped to lead the CIA. They also discuss the latest lurid allegations against Minnesota Sen. Al Franken and longtime “Prairie Home Companion” host Garrison Keillor. And they react to the reporting on Matt Lauer’s misbehavior, including the nugget that he had a special button under his desk that would lock his door.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see Donald Trump’s alleged Supreme Court short list coming down to mostly encouraging names. They also rip the right for its insane romance with Julian Assange, with Trump suggesting Assange is trustworthy and Sarah Palin even apologizing to Assange for condemning his publishing her own hacked emails years ago. And they groan as Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer vows to stall at least eight Trump cabinet nominees.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America have only good martinis Wednesday. They are very bullish about many of the Trump cabinet selections. They enjoy watching the left prove out radical it is by how it responds to a simple Trump tweet. And we love watching Senate Democrats regret scrapping the filibuster for political appointments.
