On today’s show, we get into liberal’s latest conspiracy theory that President Donald Trump won’t leave office if he loses in 2020.

We also cover the media’s excitement over a new poll claiming Trump would lose to nearly every Democrat running, 2020 candidate Kirsten Gillibrand compares being pro-life to being a racist, and New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks Congress needs a raise to stop it from being corrupt.

Listen to the show:

A new poll says nearly every Democrat running for the presidential nomination in 2020 would beat Trump if the election were held today. Of course, the election isn’t being held today, so a poll about something more than 500 days away is pretty worthless. That hasn’t stopped the media from reporting on the poll as if it were something to be taken seriously.

By the way, the same poll in 2015 said Hillary Clinton could beat Donald Trump by 18 points. How’d that work out again? We explain.

There’s a new conspiracy making the rounds on the left that if Trump loses reelection, he will do something to stay in office and “won’t leave.” How this would happen, they never say, but it will, or at least could, they insist.

The latest person to make this claim is HBO’s Bill Maher in an interview with CNN. Chris Cuomo didn’t question or dispute the claim because journalism or something. This is nothing new. In 2007, author Naomi Wolf wrote a book about how George W. Bush might do the very same thing. We discuss it and get into how the paranoid liberal mind is where conspiracies live.

If you’re pro-life you’re just like a racist. That’s according to Gillibrand, who said as much while speaking with the editorial board for the Des Moines Register. She said being pro-choice is “moral,” and anything else is imposing religion on people. Her statement needs to be heard in its entirety to appreciate just how insane it is, and we play it.

Ocasio-Cortez thinks congressional salaries need to be increased to stop graft, so she’ll be voting to give elected officials a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA). It’s kind of a “stop me before I kill again” argument. Are we supposed to believe $174,000 per year with paid travel benefits and other perks isn’t enough to live on? We take on the issue.
