Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are back from vacation. Before discussing the day’s martinis, they remember the horrific events of September 11, 2001 and why we must remember what happened that day. Then they welcome the news that Hillary Clinton will never run for office again and laugh as she blames the “godforsaken electoral college” among many other factors for her defeat last year. They also shake their heads as a tongue-in-cheek Facebook page encouraging people to “Shoot at Hurricane Irma” gets the media and even law enforcement very alarmed. And they sigh as the major networks once again send their reporters into fierce storms, somehow thinking we won’t believe there is a hurricane unless we see their people getting hammered by the rain and wind.
Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America encourage President Trump to scrap President Obama’s unconstitutional and unilateral program allowing illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, noting the issue ought to be addressed by Congress. They also slam former FBI Director James Comey upon the revelation that he decided to exonerate Hillary Clinton in her email investigation long before the investigation was done or key witnesses were interviewed. And they roll their eyes as a Catholic school in California removes most of its statues, including ones of Jesus and Mary, in an effort to be more inclusive and “forward-looking.”
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America sigh as public squabbles between President Trump and GOP congressional leaders and members leaves us wondering if they will get anything consequential accomplished by the end of the year. They also wince as terrible poll numbers for President Trump on several questions reflect what may be a rough road ahead for Republicans in 2018. And they roll their eyes and unload on Hillary Clinton over her new book excerpts.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America celebrate the liberation of Mosul from ISIS control and the tightening of the noose around ISIS in Syria as well. They also discuss reports that former FBI Director James Comey’s memos on conversations with President Trump contain classified information. And they lightheartedly critique Donald Trump Jr.’s account of a fruitless meeting between top Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer who claimed to have dirt on Hillary Clinton but really wanted to talk about adoption policy.
