Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to the U.S. Supreme Court allowing President Trump’s travel ban on six nations to go into effect while the courts sort out the legal challenges.  Regardless of whether the ban is a good idea, U.S. law clearly gives the president the authority to do this.  They also shudder as the Republican National Committee follows President Trump’s lead and jumps back in to help Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.  And they shake their heads as Michigan Rep. John Conyers says he is “retiring” from Congress and endorses his son in the race to succeed him.

Pervnado Disproportionately Impacting Pervgressives

 

It’s said that conditions in the eye of a hurricane are sunny, still, and lovely. As Bill Clinton can attest, the same can be said of the Pervnado currently causing chaos in DC, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, and other Democratic strongholds like Seattle. Even historically right-of-center San Diego learned that electing a Democratic mayor means taking a walk on the wild side. And yet right there in the middle of it all, a man credibly accused of violent rape continues to relax poolside in a Corona hat and with a small umbrella in his drink as one after another of his fellow travelers is sucked up and spat out of public life like so much lint.

Rank has its privileges!

Alas, we live in a remarkably sensitive era. When I was a kid, drunkenly steering a car off a bridge into the drink and leaving a young woman to drown wouldn’t prevent a sitting senator from becoming “the lion” of the world’s greatest deliberative body. And that’s the upper chamber! Meanwhile, one of our friends in the House of Representatives deems it appropriate to show up to work in his underwear as if he’s a hard-bodied Calvin Klein model instead of a 52-year veteran of Congress who mentally checked-out years ago.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss the fight between left and right over who should head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and whether President Trump gets to make that decision and why the Constitution makes this an easy call.  They also shake their heads as House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi offers a pathetic and hypocritical defense of longtime Rep. John Conyers, who reached a settlement to end a sexual harassment allegation and has also been accused by other women.  And they respond to the Twitter proclamation of New York Times columnist Charles Blow that he cannot be friends with anyone who supports President Trump.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Rich McFadden of Radio America bring you the latest developments in the tsunami of sexual harassment allegations sweeping the media and Capitol Hill.
