Join Jim and Greg as they welcome a new poll showing Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin leading Democrat Terry McAuliffe among likely voters.  They also vent as the Department of Homeland Security admits that only 16 percent of the Afghanistan evacuees brought to the U.S. were American citizens, green card holders, or Afghans with special immigrant visas.  So who are all of the others?  And they shake their heads as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki offers up a truly lame excuse for why reporters were shouted down and kicked out of the Oval Office on Tuesday.

Join Jim and Greg as they process the latest difficult news out of Afghanistan.
