Join Jim and Greg as they welcome news that Democrats in Florida admit being “fatalistic” in knowing Republicans are very likely to win statewide races. They also unload on the Biden administration over it’s plan to “forgive” $10,000 in student loans and pass the bill over to people who never took out the loans or responsibly paid their bills. Finally, they discuss Rep. Jerry Nadler’s surprisingly easy win in a member vs. member New York House primary and Rep. Carolyn Maloney blaming her loss – at least in part – on misogyny and a sexist system.
Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the upcoming retirement of Anthony Fauci as they chronicle his soaring ego and willingness to lie when it suited his agenda. They also pop the popcorn as longtime Democrats in the House get ugly in their member vs. member primary in New York City. And they shake their heads as Transportation Sec. Pete Buttigieg tries to talk tough to airlines over their serious delay problems but it’s obvious he really has no solutions.
More Democratic infighting means more popcorn on today’s Three Martini Lunch. Join Jim and Greg as they get a kick out of Tulsi Gabbard suing Hillary Clinton for defamation after Hillary indirectly accused Gabbard of being a Russian asset. They’re also very puzzled as to why Joe Biden would insist on not deporting illegal immigrants guilty of drunk driving, especially given his own family’s story. And they discuss the House impeachment managers’ odd tactic of accusing the jurors in the Senate of assisting President Trump in a cover-up if they reject any efforts by Democrats to subpoena documents or witnesses.
