President Joe Biden’s surprise visit to Ukraine wasn’t all it was chalked up to be. Join Federalist Editor-in-Chief Mollie Hemingway and Senior Editor David Harsanyi as they scrutinize Biden’s pledge to write blank checks to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky “for as long as it takes,” discuss CNN’s Don Lemon and his comments that Nikki Haley is past her “prime,” consider the 2024 presidential prospects, and urge parents to keep their kids away from screens. David and Mollie also share their culture picks for the week, including “Columbo.”

What Mollie doesn’t account for is the difference between people like the regular yokels on Fox and Friends compared with the weekend hosts. There is simply no comparison between Rachel Duffy, Will Cain, and Pete Hegseth, and the main “stars”. The weekend hosts come across as much more polished even though they’re only doing this a couple days of week and haven’t been hosts for that long. Brian, Steve, and Ainsley struggle to put together coherent sentences and narratives on a regular basis. It’s embarrassing and the only conclusion is that they are not very bright, at least compared with Rachel, Will, and Pete.
True conservatives don’t use Google!
Democrats like Don Lemon are desperately attacking Nikki Haley, because my dream is their nightmare: seeing her wipe the floor with Kamala Harris In the 2024 Vice Presidential debate.
Maybe they’ll bring back Candy Crowley to throw herself in front of Harris, the way she protected Obama in 2012.
On domestic policy, Mollie Hemingway is nonpareil.
But on foreign policy, well, not so much. She grumbles that we haven’t unified the entire world against the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
But she neglects to mention the unprecedented unity of Europe, with even Sweden and Finland giving up their 70 years of neutrality and desperately applying for NATO membership.
They recognize that an empire 6,000 miles long, extending all the way to the Pacific Ocean, has them in its sights.
