Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announcing there will be a vote on the criminal justice reform bill known as the FIRST STEP Act. They also discuss Time magazine’s selection of Jamal Khashoggi and other murdered and persecuted journalists as the “Person of the Year” and take time to explain that no one can equate President Trump’s treatment of the media to the murders and imprisonment for the press in other parts of the world. And they assess MSNBC hosts Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi being appalled that each person supposedly being considered by Trump to be the next chief of staff is a white male.

    Why is it so difficult for Jim and Greg to simply say that the gender or race of anyone for any job is in and of itself self meaningless data? Rather like so many others they simply accept the idea and that gender and racial diversity is good on its face and then proceed to argue that none of the Democratic administrations have had a minority or female as Chief of Staff. So using their brilliant logic then as soon a Democratic administration does then the Republican administration will be obliged to follow their example. I thought these guys were the “principled” conservatives?

    As they said so many directions to go in and they chose the worst. Way to go guys, way to go.

    Yes! more felons will be released and voting in our Florida elections. Thank God, I just don’t think the average voter commits enough crime, and this bill should kick up those numbers in Florida as we recently voted to allow felons to get back their voting rights!

    It’s always good for the Republicans to vote! If 51% of them will vote for the bill and 100% of the democrats support cause that’s compromise. Why go for the numbers the other way – that’s just crazy talk. Carbon Tax here we come! Oh I can hardly wait to pay more for everything in our new era of 51% Republican, 100% Democrat compromises!
