I think Ricochet’s beloved Arahant should interview Peter next. Apparently they’ll just let anybody do it.

It could be called “Catty Knowledge”

    @peterrobinson, you’re a pretty solid improv actor.

    Ok, that was great. Peter, you were magnificent. The baffled expressions were Oscar-worthy.

    I thought the Ben Shapiro interview was great but this one is even better.

    I’ll go out on a limb and say Peter’s job is safe.

    Sure it is. But now is a time that calls for boldness.

    Just great!

    I had to appreciate Peter’s statement that “the President” for him means Reagan.

    That was good, but Michael Knowles should have prefaced his second question – and all those after that – by saying, “Last question.”

    I was also kinda hoping for more direct parody of Peter’s interview style. Instead, it felt more like an episode of Between Two Ferns.

    But without the snideness. Robinson’s delivery would be tough to satire well; because even if you find it funny, he’s very sincere.

    I think this could work well as a series with Knowles as a millennial who asks these kinds of perplexingly ignorant questions.

    It’s like a political “Between Two Ferns”.
