Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America salute UN Ambassador Nikki Haley for her clear language and strong defense of American priorities on the world stage. After briefly condemning The Atlantic’s firing of Kevin Williamson, hey also groan as President Trump and China exchange threats of even more aggressive trade action against one another. And they scratch their heads as former two-term Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty runs for the job again.
Booming Economy, Intolerant Left’s Purity Test, Disney Princesses & Abortion
David French of National Review and David French of National Review welcome more good economic news, including weekly jobless claims at the lowest level since January 1973 and the highest consumer sentiment in 14 years. David fights back against the intolerant liberal mob that wants former National Review columnist Kevin Williamson ousted from his new position at The Atlantic in the latest example of demands for ideological purity in journalism on the left. And they fume at a Planned Parenthood chapter in Pennsylvania for not only tweeting that Disney needs princesses that have had abortions, are undocumented, are union members or transgender, but they unload at the radical social justice warriors who insist pushing an extreme agenda in the face of small children.
NOTE: There will be no Three Martini Lunch on Friday, March 30, in observance of Good Friday. Jim and Greg will be back on Monday, April 2. Happy Easter!
