After a brief mention of today’s impeachment hearings, Jim and Greg launch into Wednesday’s real martinis. First, they take deep satisfaction in watching the end of the Kamala Harris presidential campaign and chronicle the many things that went wrong for her. They also slam Pete Buttigieg for saying that anyone who supports President Trump is “looking the other way on racism, at best.” And they note that after three years of liberals cheering on sanctuary cities and counties over immigration policy, they suddenly have the vapors as conservative counties in Virginia adopt sanctuary policies against upcoming gun control legislation from the incoming Democratic majorities.
Recording of Tuesday’s Three Martini Lunch concluded before the news of Kamala Harris abandoning her presidential campaign. Rest assured we will have plenty to say about that on Wednesday. In the meantime, grab a stool and join Jim and Greg as serve up Tuesday’s martinis. First, they’re grateful to see President Trump siding with the Iranian protesters despite earlier indications to the contrary. They also facepalm as Trump allies attack Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp for not following Trump’s advice on a U.S. Senate appointment and Kemp proceeds to pick someone who makes the pro-life community very nervous. And they notice that Michael Bloomberg’s spending barrage already has him in fifth place among voters in the first four primary and caucus states.
Glad you’ve joined us for the Monday martinis! Today, Jim and Greg cheer the people of Hong Kong for leaving no doubt in local elections that they are on the side of freedom and the protesters. They also cringe as figures on the right speak of Trump is near messianic terms, a tactic the left engaged in over President Obama for eight years prior to Trump. They’re both way off base. And as Kamala Harris suddenly declares herself a champion of marijuana decriminalization because it leads to mass incarceration, Jim and Greg inconveniently point out her record and her painfully obvious political calculations.
Jim is back! Join us for the Tuesday edition of the Three Martini Lunch as he and Greg get a kick out of candidates like Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar playing the race and gender cards against Democratic primary voters to explain why their campaigns are struggling. They also roll their eyes at reports that Democrats are trying to get witnesses to cry in the open impeachment hearings in order to build emotional support for President Trump’s impeachment. And they discuss why even more Democrats – like Eric Holder and Deval Patrick – are seriously looking at late entries into the 2020 campaign.
It was a long night, but we’re here and we’re glad you could join us! Today, Jim and Greg unpack disappointing election results as Democrats win control of the Virginia legislature and Kentucky GOP Gov. Matt Bevin appears headed to defeat. But they perk up as they see conservative policy ideas like protecting taxpayers, rejecting sanctuary city status, and tapping the brakes on affirmative action winning in moderate to liberal parts of the country. And they have zero use for a Kamala Harris proposal that would keep create a 10-hour school day (8 a.m.-6 p.m.) so it lines up with the work schedule of parents.
Another day, another round of all good martinis. After a brief analysis of the Washington Nationals winning the World Series, Jim and Greg enjoy watching the Kamala Harris presidential campaign suffer its worst poll numbers yet and shrink the campaign staff to save its dwindling resources. They also marvel at the stratospheric approval numbers of Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis, who enjoys a 72 percent approval rating and gets thumbs up from a majority of every major demographic, including Democrats. And they’re fascinated by poll numbers showing the possibility of impeaching President Trump is far less popular in the swing states than it is in national polls.
The laughs are even more abundant than usual today on the Three Martini Lunch! Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America begin by applauding CBS for reporting the real headline from the new books on the Kavanuagh fight – that one of Christine Blasey Ford’s supposed witnesses was pressured to lie to support Ford’s story. They also enjoy seeing poll after poll showing Sen. Kamala Harris is slipping badly from her position as a top tier candidate. And as liberal critics wring their hands over Andrew Yang joking that he knows a lot of doctors because he’s Asian, Jim and Greg suggest everyone lighten up and have some fun with their own ethnicities.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome word that a federal investigation will be opened into how a prominent Indiana abortion provider allied with Pete Buttigieg ended up with more than 2,000 fetal remains in his home. They also shake their heads as Kamala Harris not only calls for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to be impeached but also contends that Christine Blasey Ford was “treated like a criminal” and that the Kavanaugh confirmation created a “crisis of confidence” in the Supreme Court. And Jim has plenty to say as the two New York Times reporters behind the latest Kavanaugh allegation insist their original article included the fact the supposed victim has no memory of the incident but their editors took it out of the story.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are back! Today, they enjoy watching Democrats wasting time and money in pushing Rep. Joseph Kennedy III to launch a primary challenge against incumbent Democratic Sen. Ed Markey, but Jim also explains why it’s long past time to stop fawning over the Kennedys. Jim also dives into his latest piece, in which he slams the social justice warriors for refusing to accept many goodwill gestures from the NFL so long as Colin Kaepernick remains without a team. And they roll their eyes as Sen. Kamala Harris tells donors she is not comfortable with the Medicare for All legislation pushed by 2020 rival Sen. Bernie Sanders, even though Harris co-sponsored the legislation.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America serve up three more delicious martinis. First, they cautiously applaud the selection of Boris Johnson as the new British prime minister in hopes the UK can finally deal with Brexit in a good way and they eagerly await the Trump-Johnson press conferences. They also commend Democratic House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal for not bowing to the progressive whims to demand Trump’s New York state tax returns immediately. And they enjoy hearing 2020 hopeful and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard insist that Sen. Kamala Harris is not qualified to be Commander-in-Chief.
