It’s a no-filter Friday on the Three Martini Lunch. Jim and Greg start by reacting to the Roger Stone convictions before even starting their martinis. Then they shake their heads as President Trump goes on a Twitter rant against former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovonovitch while she’s testifying on Capitol Hill and Adam Schiff immediately overplays his hand by calling it witness intimidation. Then Jim details the disturbing backgrounds of new Democratic presidential candidates Michael Bloomberg and Deval Patrick, including Bloomberg’s mistreatment of women and Patrick abusing his office to help a relative avoid registering as a sex offender. And they get some satisfaction knowing that even the finalists in the “Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions” have already forgotten who Michael Avenatti is.

    Jim: “Trump could have replaced her [Yovonovitch] at any point”.

    Except he was already struggling to fill hundreds of positions!

    This is much like the argument that Jim Comey should have been fired on Day One.

    In both cases Trump’s first reaction was to try to light a fire under these people to get them to do what he wants. He tried the same thing with AG Sessions, with just about the same lack of success.

    What better proof that Jim Geraghty’s coverage of the Trump Administration is wrongheaded, than that CNN’s Brian Stelter admires it.

    Stelter sees Geraghty as a “useful idiot” for the progressive cause.

    Let’s be fair. Jim just doesn’t want Brian Stelter dead compared to Adam Gase. But I’m sure there are others who would get the one life preserver ahead of Stelter.
