There is an in-depth discussion this week covering three issues that broke just this week

First, the guys talk about the SCOTUS Bostock decision regarding Title VII of The Civil Rights Act, Neil Gorsuch’s majority opinion, and whether or not it was the court writing legislation instead of interpreting the law.

With all the news still going on about the coronavirus, the guys decided to discuss several issues that aren’t directly related to the pandemic.

First up is the contraceptive mandate in Obamacare. The Trump administration relaxed the rules for having to provide them for employees and appeals court stopped it. The Supreme Court took up the issue. Also, the Super PAC called The Lincoln Project released an ad called, “Mourning in America,” a take on Ronald Reagan’s famous reelection ad from 1984, except this one is a direct shot at President Trump, who didn’t take it very well. The guys also discuss Josh Hawley’s op-ed in the New York Times calling for the abolishment of the World Trade Organization.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are excited after a new poll shows Republican Josh Hawley leading incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill in the Missouri Senate race. They also think Beto O’Rourke and the Democratic Party are wasting money on the Texas U.S. Senate race, as incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz leads by 10 points. And they laugh at New York  Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who pandered to his constituents by making the absurd claim he will sue the Supreme Court if they overturn Roe v. Wade.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley stand her ground after chief Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow suggests Haley was confused about whether new sanctions had been ordered against Russia.  They also shudder as more horrible allegations come out against disgraced Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, and because he won’t resign even after top GOP leaders urged him to step down.  They roll their eyes as independent 2016 presidential candidate Evan McMullin remains mired in campaign debt and has missed his last three required filings with the Federal Elections Commission.  And Jim and Greg pay tribute to the remarkable life of former First Lady Barbara Bush.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome a new poll showing Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill losing to her likely Republican opponent.  They also shake their heads as more than 30 House Republicans, including several committee chairmen, are retiring and leaving it much tougher for the GOP to hold the majority after the midterm elections.  And they react to Life Time gyms refusing to turn their televisions to cable news channels because they conflict with the gym’s commitment to a “healthy way of life.”
