Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America start with an appetizer by cheering the U.S. Navy’s use of a new laser weapon meant to target small watercraft and drones. They also praise the Trump administration for its success in halting hundreds of regulations that would stifle job growth and business expansion. They also address the tragic news that Arizona Sen. John McCain is diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, and they express disgust at the tasteless and nasty reactions from both sides of the political spectrum. And they sigh over President Trump griping to the media about his frustrations over Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusing himself from the Russia investigation.
Three Martini Lunch 3/13/17
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss Pres. Trump’s removal of 46 Obama-era U.S. attorneys and how many critics fail to mention this happens with every modern administration. They also shake their heads as scores of high-level government appointments have yet to be filled and no nominations have been made. And they wince as Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King says, “We can’t restore our civilization with someone else’s babies.”

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America offer three good martinis. CENTCOM declares no major mistakes were made in the Yemen raid. Rebels are preparing to lay siege to the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa. The February jobs report looks strong. And we have fun with the kids who stole the show in the BBC interview.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see Jill Stein’s quixotic recount journey get shut down in Michigan and headed towards an anticlimactic finish in Wisconsin. They slam the media for only now realizing that many of the new jobs created in the Obama years are low-wage, part time openings that aren’t a long-term solution for families. And they unload on CNN for suggesting that racism was behind the fierce Republican opposition to President Obama’s agenda.
