    Remarkable how Kevin and Charlie pat themselves on the back for original thinking, even as they crank out one anti-Trump cliché after another.

    And congratulate themselves for not being useful to “their“ side, but don’t recognize how useful they are to the other side.

    And Charlie rephrases Trump’s tweets, but doesn’t realize he’s doing it.

    Charlie, if Trump had said it the way you did, it would never have gotten any coverage.

    This is something Scott Adams has pointed out in the past. To get the liberal media to deliver a conservative message, you have to convince them it will be helpful to their side. Much like the media elected George H.W. Bush by playing up the Willie Horton ad.

    The diversion through Charlie’s grandfather’s military history was a very good part of the podcast. We read and hear so much about the generals and the political grandees and battle strategy, yet I enjoy hearing about the “ordinary” folk who have either made an extraordinary impact on others, or who have been transformed by their experiences. That’s part of why I enjoy the Ricochet posts about Civil War history by @jeffgiambrone .

    Wait, Charlie gets people telling him to go back home? Kevin jokes and asks if one of them is Trump. However, I was told this week by the Left and some on the Right that that phrase is racist and no one tells that to a white person. Interesting.

    No, no, no, see, it’s because nobody tells it to a white person that you’re required to tell it to a white person. Kind of like how you have to put innocent men in jail for rape to make up for all the times completely unrelated guilty men got away with rape.

    We’re probably about a year or two away from progressives deciding that “go back where you came from” should replace “see you later” whenever you finish a conversation with a white person.

    Well said!

    The progressive narrative, that the founding of the United States was an unjust usurpation, implies that all white people should “go back where they came from”.

    P.S.: Charlie was referring to MSNBC viewers.
