Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America shed no tears at the death of former Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe, who repressed and sometimes killed his people and ruthlessly clung to power for decades. They also react to the new that former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz will not be mounting a 2020 independent presidential bid and also remember the unrelenting venom that Democrats and the media allies directed at Schultz for even thinking about an independent campaign. And they slam both President Trump and the media for being unable to admit mistakes and turning literally anything – including a Sharpie sketch on a hurricane map – into grist for yet another controversy.

    Repeat after me, “We are the media. It is not an other-people thing. We are members of the media. We are not Progressives. We do not get facts confused with opinions. But we are part of the media.” Say that in front of a mirror three times per day until you figure it out.

    An alternative name for this podcast might be “The Unbearable Lightness of the Anti-Trumper”.

    The guys really can’t see why it’s important to a) refute a liberal media attack on Trump intended to paint him as ignorant or cracked, and b) instead reinforce the image of the liberal media as biased and incompetent.

    “President Bush, don’t lower yourself by refuting the liberal charge that ‘Bush lied, thousands died’. You have better things to do, and anyway, now that you’re a lame duck it doesn’t matter how low your approval rating goes.”

    Another alternative name for this podcast might be “Bad Advice for Republicans”.
