Join Jim and Greg as they appreciate a more stable southern border thanks to Mexico holding up its end of the bargain on border security. They also shudder at the news that Justin Trudeau will continue as Prime Minister of Canada, even though Conservative Party candidates won more votes nationwide. And they enjoy watching Democratic insiders wring their hands because they’re worried none of the many Democrats running for president may be able to defeat President Trump and dream of new candidates jumping into the race.
It’s all crazy martinis today! Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America start with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau found to have used blackface on at least three occasions but the maddening part is how the left is urging everyone to calm down with respect to Trudeau when they would have cast a non-leftist to the wolves and even Trudeau himself says these sorts of stories ought to be judges on a case by case basis. They also wait for more information after reports say an intelligence whistleblower is accusing Trump of making a shocking promise to a world leader. Is this a major scandal in the making or just more media hyperventilation? And let’s just say they’re severely underwhelmed as House Republicans make repealing Obamacare and reducing the national debt their priorities if voters return to the majority – particularly when they did neither when they had the chance in the first two years of the Trump administration.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss the sudden political turmoil for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after his former attorney general says Trudeau told her go easy on a major business that was under investigation and then removed her as attorney general when she refused. They also have fun as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi berates moderate House Democrats for siding with Republicans on multiple motions to recommit and warns that they’ll get less help from the party in 2020 if they don’t vote the way she wants. And they slam their heads against their desks as Roy Moore considers another run for the Senate seat he lost in 2017.
