Jim Geraghty of National Review and Chad Benson of Radio America celebrate a positive July economic report, as unemployment drops to 3.9 percent and the economy adds 157,000 jobs. They also criticize The New York Times for hiring reporter Sarah Jeong, who made racist comments about white people. And they break down reporter Bill Scher’s unappealing offer for Never-Trump Republicans to join the Democratic Party, as long as they accept that their policies will not win.

    With Sarah Jeong, she is explicitly, and crudely, saying what I think a lot of people on the left, including The New York Times, thinks about race. I also think a lot of voters agree with me. She is an example of why Trump won the election.
