We’ve got three compelling martinis to help you ease back into that first day back at work or school. Join Jim and Greg as they applaud comedian Ricky Gervais for hammering Hollywood for its hypocrisy and self-importance at the Golden Globe Awards Sunday evening on topics ranging from Harvey Weinstein to Jeffrey Epstein to Chinese sweat shops. Jim also urges President Trump to stop threatening to strike cultural sites in Iran because military targets make much more sense and discussing cultural sites could turn other nations against us. And they cringe as the video of Julian Castro endorsing Elizabeth Warren comes across as inauthentic, with Castro coming to Warren’s house, telling Warren how wonderful she is, and Warren agreeing with him.
Happy New Year! Grab a stool, as Jim and Greg return to their normal format for 2020. Today, they’re grateful that the attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad was successfully stopped and no one was hurt and they also hope there are severe repercussions for the attack’s Iranian sponsors. They’re happy to see Julian Castro exit the campaign trail after a campaign that was rich in pandering but never found much support. And they discuss President Trump’s $102 million cash on hand and the impact that could make in the campaign.
It’s all good martinis for us today! Join Jim and Greg as they find endless entertainment in Hillary accusing Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian asset and Gabbard going nuclear in response. They’re also glad to see President Trump listening to those begging him to take one controversy off the table and scrapping the 2020 G-7 summit at Trump’s Doral resort in Florida. And they have a lot of fun with Julian Castro becoming the latest Democrat to insist they are leaving the race unless they raise a large sum of money by the end of the month.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleased to see a high-ranking government official actually moving closer to facing the same type of prosecution most Americans would face for allegedly divulging sensitive information and then lying about it. Jim also hilariously shreds CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin for acting like the allegations in the case are incredibly complicated. They also size up the third Democratic presidential debate and hammer Julian Castro for his obvious suggestion that Joe Biden is too mentally fuzzy to be president. And they roll their eyes as Andrew Yang vows to give ten Americans a thousand dollars a month over the next year.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America worry that Republicans and Democrats are underestimating Sen. Bernie Sanders’ chances in 2020 after the 77-year-old socialist from Vermont blew his competition out of the water by raising $18 million in his first six weeks. They also remember that Julian Castro is running after the former DNC darling from Texas called for decriminalizing illegal border crossings. And they unload on CNN’s Christiane Amanpour after she asks former FBI Director James Comey whether the federal government should have clamped down on chants of “lock her up” against Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.
