Andrew Cuomo melting down over COVID, schools, and law enforcement officers refusing to endorse his absurd policy on Thanksgiving gatherings.

Now they are highlighting Warnock’s radical statements on many different issues.

And they react to Georgia Democrats assuming Stacey Abrams will run for governor again in 2022.

Join Jim and Greg as they relish Democrats likely having such a tight majority in the House that it will be tough for many to accept jobs in the executive branch because the vacancies could make it tough for Democrats to get much legislation done.

And they update the infighting among Democrats by discussing the latest salvos from Joe Manchin and AOC.

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss why it’s so critical for Republicans to win one – or preferably both – of the Georgia Senate races and Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy also distills it very well.
