Chad Benson, host of “The Chad Benson Show,” fills in for Jim, who will be back on Tuesday. Today, Chad explains what the loss of Kobe Bryant means to the people of southern California before he and Greg dive into three crazy martinis. First, they react to the news that former National Security Adviser John Bolton apparently wrote in his forthcoming book that President Trump ordered him to hold off on releasing military aid to Ukraine until Ukraine launched the investigations he wanted. Is this a major wrinkle in the impeachment saga, a book-selling gimmick, or something in between? They also discuss the Des Moines Register endorsing Elizabeth Warren and the Union Leader in New Hampshire backing Amy Klobuchar and ask whether endorsements really matter anymore. While on the topic they also explore whether Warren still has a chance or whether her campaign is out of gas but media insist on propping her up. Finally, they get a kick out of a Fox 5 poll in Washington, showing the nation’s capital is either bored by the impeachment trial or just not interested in it.

    I’d rather just get it over with, rather than fooling around with more witnesses. There is no smoking gun.

    Sorry, not to quibble, but Yeah, the Lakers never amounted to anything without Kobe Bryant! (sorry Magic, Shaq, Kareem, West, etc.) … And Lebron isn’t as big of a name as Kobe? I’m pretty sure I disagree.

    Since I never have given a particle about “professional sports,” the only Kobe I ever think of is premium beef, originally from Japan.

    I agree the 80’s Showtime Lakers were the best Lakers teams. And certainly the most fun to watch.
