It’s an all-crazy Thursday on the Three Martini Lunch! Join Jim and Greg as they get a kick out of Democratic presidential hopefuls already explaining why they’re going to keep running regardless of how badly they do in South Carolina and on Super Tuesday. They also shake their heads as the mainstream media all suddenly make the coronavirus a political issue to hammer the Trump administration. And they wince as the Trump campaign urges South Carolina Republicans to cross over and support Bernie Sanders in Saturday’s Democratic primary.

    After whining about the Republican party supposedly “rigging” the primary process against him in 2016, I’m sure that President Trump, a man of principles…

    (I interrupt to finish laughing)

    …will beg his South Carolina followers not to try to “rig” the Democratic primary to benefit him.

    Yeah, suuuure!

    Well considering what the Dems are likely planning for November (ballot harvesting, etc), a little “chaos” in the Dem primaries is negligible.

    I take it, you’re one of those people who demand that the Republicans unilaterally disarm, and then pat themselves on the back for their virtue as they and the country go down the drain.

    In 2016, complaining that the primaries were rigged against him was smart politics for Trump, because it would help explain away any negative results.

    In 2020, encouraging his supporters to vote for Sanders in the South Carolina primary is smart politics, because it encourages Sanders’ opponents to stay in the race even if he wins, and makes the Democratic establishment even more frantically determined to steal the nomination from Sanders one more time.

    It’s also funny. Like Rush Limbaugh and his Operation Chaos, Trump is a great showman.
