It’s all crazy martinis today! Join Jim and Greg as they respond to MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski begging Twitter to start censoring Trump’s tweets. They also have little use for Matt Lauer re-emerging and portraying himself as a victim. And they unload on the bizarre coverage of Joe Biden’s options for a running mate, drooling over the thoroughly unqualifed Stacey Abrams while doing no work to research far more viable options.

Our first topic this week is – mon dieu! – a tweet from Trump! Will it ever end?! Trump attacks Obama (wait! Isn’t he gone already?). Trump says that Obama ordered during the campaign that Trump’s phone be tapped. With one or two shades of nuance, this is what the BBC and the New York Times already reported, viz., that requests were made to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Courts for an electronic surveillance order of the Trump campaign. The left went ballistic. Mika Brzezinski broke into tears. Chuck Schumer said “aha!” The President did the two-step non-denial denial.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see Americans more optimistic about the nation’s direction than they have for a long time. ‘Morning Joe’ co-host Mika Brzezinski is worried that Pres. Trump is trying to control what people think because that’s her job. And they discuss MSNBC’s Katy Tur having no idea what a GOP congressman was talking about when he said Pres. Obama promised greater flexibility with Russia once his re-election was over.
