Join Jim and Greg for four martinis today, as they begin with the breaking news that Tucker Carlson and Fox News Channel are going their separate ways effective immediately. Then it’s on to the regularly scheduled martinis, starting with both the Wall Street Journal and New York Times raising the alarm about Biden running for a second term at his age and mental state. The Journal says Biden is in “obvious decline.” Then they shudder at a Washington Post story revealing the Islamic State has a home in Afghanistan and his actively plotting attacks in Asia and Europe and is doing aspirational plotting against the United States. Finally, they discuss the frenzied damage control at Anheuser-Busch after losing billions in market share after celebrating the “womanhood” of transgender figure Dylan Mulvaney.
Jim & Greg are glad to see White House reporter James Rosen put Biden economic adviser Jared Bernstein on the spot as to why Biden takes no blame when gas prices rise and all the credit when they come down. They also shake their heads as yet another Democrat trots out stereotypical insults against a Republican Latina. And they get a good laugh as Ohio Democrat Tim Ryan rolls out a new ad of him being praised by Fox News hosts.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that it looks rather unlikely that the Senate Democrats will be able to pass a version of the Build Back Better legislation by it’s self-imposed Christmas deadline.

Chad Benson is in for Jim today. Chad and Greg examine new research from the Federal Reserve showing the Biden racial equity agenda would actually make the wealth divide much greater. They also react to a pair of House Dems trying to get cable TV providers to cut ties with Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax. And they shake their heads as Merrick Garland draws a peculiar line between what is domestic terrorism and what is not.
We’re ending the week with all crazy martinis! First, we dissect the partisan fury of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel who says President Trump is no longer welcome in the state because he didn’t wear a mask before cameras while visiting a Ford plant on Thursday. They also hammer Joe Biden for telling a prominent black talk show host, “If you have a problem figuring out if you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” And they react to President Trump unloading on Fox News for not doing more to help him and other Republicans win.
One good martini and two crazies for you today! Join Jim and Greg as they note a new USA Today poll showing President Trump winning national head-to-head polls against five different Democratic hopefuls. Kamala Harris contends a new Fox News poll showing more support for impeachment means that Fox News viewers are turning on Trump, and Jim and Greg try to decide whether Kamala doesn’t know how polling works or if she’s just being dishonest. And they have plenty to say as longtime GOP political operatives launch a new venture supposedly committed to rescuing the Constitution by helping Democrats defeat Trump and other Republicans.
The US Office of Special Council released a statement saying Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway should be fired for violating the Hatch Act. Donald Trump in an appearance on Fox and Friends disagrees. Montie Montgomery reports.
Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Alabama legislators for passing a sweeping abortion ban but Alexandra wonders how well it will stand up to legal challenges. They also shake their heads as Beto O’Rourke relaunches his presidential campaign by apologizing for his privilege, calling Stacey Abrams his hero, and vowing to choose a female running mate if he’s the nominee. And they’re underwhelmed as Sen. Elizabeth Warren supposedly takes a principled stand by refusing to take part in a Fox News town hall, calling Fox News “hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists.”
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news that another major figure in the Benghazi terrorist attack is now in U.S. custody – only hundreds more to go. They also shudder as the accusations of actor Kevin Spacey allegedly preying upon a 14-year-old boy years ago elicits another round of “everybody knew” in Hollywood. And they discuss the odd transformation of Megyn Kelly, from presidential debate moderator and hard-hitting interviewer to lighthearted morning host discussing Halloween decorations and dance moves.
