Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss why the problems surrounding former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn should have been seen long ago and avoided.  They also discuss former Dem Sen. Jim Webb ripping Democrats for having no message and catering to identity politics instead of appealing to the working class.  And they react to Elon Musk’s prediction that we all have to become cyborgs or else risk being irrelevant due to the major advances in artificial intelligence.

    They need to get their act together regarding speaking on the public record. Trump is relying on others to clean up his messes, and they shouldn’t be making messes of their own.
