With no Matt or Goldfarb on the show today, there’s no one to hold Harison and Eliana back as they cover everything from the Democratic primary to the Roger Stone case. This episode is brought to you by SwagRight, where you can shop for the finest conservative apparel and accessories.

The gang starts off with New Hampshire, where the socialist revolution was started in earnest by Bernie Sanders, with Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar nipping at his heels. But Harison argues the party has painted itself into a corner where the only choices are to let Bernie win or to stop him with Bloomberg’s billions. With Mini Mike paying for everything from ads to memes, his candidacy is a test of whether you really can buy an election. For Harison, whatever happens will lead to either Bernie or Bloomberg running as an independent. And he’ll be at the Democratic convention—with his gas mask on—to chronicle the chaos that is sure to ensue.

With President Donald Trump acquitted in the Senate impeachment trial, Harison takes aim at Utah senator Mitt Romney for being the lone vote to impeach on the Republican side. Rank speculation ensues about everything from Mitt’s motives to his genealogy. Do we know who his great-great-great grandfather is? Maybe not, but that is what Reddit is for.

But the Senate acquittal isn’t the only massive win for Trump this week. Arguably the best news of 2020 is the increasing certainty with which the libs are demonstrating their unfitness to govern. Iowa is the latest and greatest example, as the Democratic Party failed to figure out… well, anything, since the night ended with absolutely zero data on any of the candidates’ results. Harison argues the Bernie Bros should be even more angry when it’s the party’s own operations that are blocking their favorite socialist’s ability to get a major boost from positive results in the Hawkeye state.

The gang has you covered this week on everything from the coronavirus to impeachment to Japanese hashtags.

With John Bolton taking center stage in the latest impeachment drama, the gang analyzes whether he’s trying to get back at President Trump, sell some books, or do something else. If Mitch McConnell wraps the impeachment trial up in the next few days, it may turn out well for sales of the book but badly for Nancy Pelosi’s future as speaker. The gang disagrees about whether Pelosi can last as her party’s leader if Trump wins reelection, and a friendly wager is made.

With the House Democrats’ prosecution phase in the impeachment case against President Trump winding down, it looks like Mitch McConnell’s hand has only gotten stronger. Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler have won few converts in their speeches before the Senate, even angering some senators with their belligerence. Harison argues that this has been an incredibly unserious process, and it hasn’t yet shown a major political upside for the Democrats.

Meanwhile in Iowa, Elizabeth Warren’s struggles continue. Confronted by a father asking whether her free college and debt cancellation policy would “screw” people who did the right thing, Warren was not sure how to answer—probably because that’s exactly what her plan would do. Falling to fourth overall in many polls, Warren is now warning her team not to expect much success from the first few states.

Elizabeth Warren opened up a whole new line of attack against her 2020 rival Bernie Sanders this week, accusing him of sexism because he told her a woman couldn’t win the election. The story originally leaked from the Warren camp and she has continued to work against Sanders since the debate Tuesday, but what is it going to do to change the game in Iowa? No one at the debate did anything to shake up the race.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi named the impeachment managers and had them deliver the articles to the Senate, but Matt argues they aren’t even trying to remove him from office at this point. That’s not what impeachment is about.

Democratic senators are losing patience with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plan to withhold the articles of impeachment. She’s fighting to keep her caucus in line, but does she have a chance against Cocaine Mitch in the Senate?

The most important news in the effort to make America great remains Trump’s ongoing domination of Iran. Despite the tough talk, Iran has backed off targeting Americans following the killing of terror master Qassem Soleimani. But that hasn’t stopped antiwar liberals such as Joy Behar from going as far as celebrating white nationalists who oppose striking Iranian targets.
