The coronavirus crisis has gotten to the point where Jim Geraghty is saying nice things about the New England Patriots and owner Robert Kraft after Kraft dispatched the team plane to China to pick up 1.2 million N95 masks.  Jim and Greg also tackle the brutal loss of 6.6 million more jobs in the past week and wonder how soon we’ll have no choice but to reopen various sectors or regions of our economy.  And they throw their hands up as Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp says he only realized this week that COVID-19 could be spread by people before they start feeling sick.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news that the Mueller probe will likely end soon with no further indictments.  They wonder why President Trump is so insistent upon inviting New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft to the White House with his team and whether he would be smarter to keep a distance after Kraft’s arrest for solicitation.  And they have fun with a recent column wondering why so many of the Democrats running for president seem really weird.

Welcome mama bears and daddy bears to this the 216th edition of the Harvard Lunch Club political podcast – the Kraft Bears edition of the show –  with your unbearable hosts, east coast radio guy Todd Feinburg and west coast AI guy Mike Stopa. We come to you every week with the pithy, the provocative and the funny stories that, well, that make you thirst for more.

This week, we discuss Robert Kraft, New England Patriots owner, winner of an unprecedented six Super Bowl Titles and (loyal?) patron of heretofore thriving establishments such as the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida. As you surely know, Bob was caught with his hand, er, in the fortune cookie jar and rumor has it that there is videotape. Mr. Kraft says no. We shall see. The house of ill repute in question is more than just a whore house, however, and is a wing of a sex trafficking network.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome a unanimous Supreme Court decision forbidding states from seizing assets in excess of the penalties a convicted person faces.  They also unload on Labor Secretary Alex Acosta as a judge rips the former U.S. Attorney for striking a 2007 plea bargain with Jeffrey Epstein and not sharing those deliberations with the accusers at the request of Epstein’s lawyers.  They react to North Carolina officials ordering a do-over in a North Carolina congressional race after a shady absentee ballot strategy by the Republican campaign.  And they react to the Robert Kraft news, which broke as they were recording.
