Join us for a busy news day on the Three Martini Lunch. Today, Jim and Greg discuss Iran’s missile strike injuring no one in Iraq, leading President Trump to announce new sanctions but no new military action. They also discuss whether the Ukrainian airliner crash in Iran was a coincidence or something more sinister. In addition, they’re glad to see Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann receiving a settlement from CNN after the network attacked over his encounter with an American Indian near the Lincoln Memorial last year – all because Sandmann was wearing a MAGA hat. And they try not to lose their breakfast as MSNBC not only carries the Soleimani funeral live but fawns all over the legacy of a man known for killing hundreds of American service members and slaughtering innocents at home and abroad.
Daniel Foster of National Review Online and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of reports that Elizabeth Warren and her team are still trying to do damage control over her DNA stunt. They also unload on the mainstream media for insisting that every kind word said Wednesday about the late George H.W. Bush was somehow an obvious rebuke of President Trump. And they react to news that Trump is at least contemplating a change in running mates for 2020.
Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney was among those eulogizing former President George Bush Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral. Mulroney discussed Bush’s leadership on the world stage with a special emphasis on how Bush deftly managed the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union.
“An ominous situation that could have become extremely menacing to world security was instead deftly [channeled] by President Bush into the broad and powerful currents of freedom,” said Mulroney.
Listen to the full story as Mulroney explains what Bush did to guide the end of the Cold War to the best possible conclusion and his relating of how former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl regarded Bush’s role in the re-unification of Germany.
New York cops made a statement Tuesday during the funeral of slain police officer Miosotis Familia. According to Hot Air.com, hundreds of police officers protested New York City mayor Bill de Blasio by turning their backs on him during his speech at the funeral. Familia was brutally gunned down in her patrol car last week by a mentally ill criminal. Her fellow officers are angry with de Blasio after he traveled to Germany one day after the tragedy to protest President Trump, a trip paid for with taxpayer money. The protest was meant to highlight how the mayor missed both an NYPD swearing-in and a vigil held for Familia due to his trip. ~Sarah Schutte
