Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three lousy martinis for the Presidents Day edition. First, they groan as former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan makes it clear education is not at the top of his priority list as a possible presidential candidate, and he accepts and agrees NBC’s false explanation of the approach Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is taking on education policy. They also sigh as President Trump unleashes a social media rant against reporter Salena Zito for doing a favorable profile on DeSantis – noting that Zito’s reporting in 2016 explained better than anyone why Trump and his message were resonating so strongly in places Republicans hadn’t won in decades. Finally, they roll their eyes at Politico’s tips for faking your way through conversations with journalists and others in Washington to advance your reporting career.
