It’s a no-filter Friday on the Three Martini Lunch. Jim and Greg start by reacting to the Roger Stone convictions before even starting their martinis. Then they shake their heads as President Trump goes on a Twitter rant against former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovonovitch while she’s testifying on Capitol Hill and Adam Schiff immediately overplays his hand by calling it witness intimidation. Then Jim details the disturbing backgrounds of new Democratic presidential candidates Michael Bloomberg and Deval Patrick, including Bloomberg’s mistreatment of women and Patrick abusing his office to help a relative avoid registering as a sex offender. And they get some satisfaction knowing that even the finalists in the “Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions” have already forgotten who Michael Avenatti is.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss the American Medical Association rejecting call for single-payer healthcare system. They’re also disgusted as prolific “Jeopardy!” winner James Holzhauer faces a massive tax hit courtesy of the state of California. And Jim and Greg discuss how Democratic voters in Virginia are returning a scandal-tarred candidate to the state legislature and how Democratic politicians are cozying up to Gov. Ralph Northam and his campaign money again.
