Rob Long is in for Jim today. Join Rob and Greg as they welcome encouraging news about a coronavirus vaccine. They also unload on the United Teachers Los Angeles union for wanting Medicare for All, a moratorium on new charter schools, a wealth tax, and defunding of police before they’re comfortable going back into the classroom. And they have fun with the most predictable news of 2020…John Kasich will be speaking at the Democratic National Convention.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are surprised to see prominent Trump critics David Brooks and John Kasich saying Democrats are moving way too quickly on impeachment. They also get a big laugh out of New York Times podcast host Michael Barbaro demanding that people leave the children of political candidates alone – while specifically referring to 49-year-old Hunter Biden. And they roll their eyes hard as Prince Harry says he has trouble getting out of bed some days because he is so concerned about the future of the planet.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America point out the Senate hearings on Michael Flynn produced nothing that wasn’t already known but agree it’s a good thing President Trump removed Flynn after just a few weeks on the job. They also sigh as John Kasich offers a long-winded explanation about why he can’t speculate about running against Trump in 2020. And they discuss the rise of politically-driven divorces, primarily by couples bitterly divided over Trump.
