Join Jim and Greg as they walk through the Texas plan to re-open the economy that’s drawing rave reviews, but they also discuss whether re-opening should be statewide policy or based on local conditions and why Democratic governors are getting far less grief for re-opening than Republicans. They also walk through Politico’s cringe-inducing apology on how badly it mangled its story on debts President Trump allegedly owed to China. And they react to the fury of the Bernie Sanders campaign over New York’s decision to cancel its presidential primary. Is this a case of Sanders focusing on politics over the health crisis in New York or is it imperative for states to find ways to hold elections regardless of the conditions?

    I don’t like the idea of a government canceling an election when there is more than one candidate. There were still many candidates on the ballot in this primary. It’s not for the government to divine the intentions of candidates. If a candidate wants to be removed from a ballot, that candidate can write a letter to the electoral board to do so. This sets a terrible precedent.

    If China is taking US to the cleaners on trade issues … Would that be a Chinese Laundry?
