(This is funny because Lowry spent years cravenly backfilling a "respectable" Trumpist nationalism and it all went horribly and predictably wrong and he wants off the Trump Train but now is getting tagged from the right as Never Trump, you love to see it.)

Doing policy segments is not as much fun for the hosts or interesting for the audience as inflammatory culture war stuff, but I'm sure they'll find a way to bridge the gap (probably by calling Biden's policies Marxist attempts to destroy America if past is prologue).

Political violence remains extremely unpopular, but many conservatives believe propaganda outlets telling them the rioters were leftists https://t.co/p7q7T9vmyX https://t.co/p2N3OzOX1w

The closest they got to covering it is that Laura Ingraham really doesn't want to increase the minimum wage. https://t.co/VMmNZySQG9

Here's Steve Moore making the Republican case against the bill, it's literally that it does too much to help people. https://t.co/ksl70w0o1E

NEW: Biden’s covid relief package has a $1.9 trillion pricetag and includes: - $1,400 stimulus checks - Raising federal minimum wage to $15/hour - $400b for fighting covid - $350b for cities, states, tribal governments From @JStein_WaPo @ericawerner: https://t.co/vvD3X8gHRf

This would provide crucial help to a huge number of people! https://t.co/a1zfR2lkom

This is the move, right here: Right-wing elite gets platformed, there's a backlash, and then the response is that the attack on the right-wing elite is an attack on the right-wing as a whole. The "75 million Trump voters," Shapiro's podcast audience, it's all the same thing. https://t.co/WQmvjjUUXg

YouTube terminated Bannon's account after the Capitol insurrection, he had spent the previous several weeks calling for violence and revolution. https://t.co/7X7ELhqogJ https://t.co/WEq3msSnUA

From Ben Shapiro's perspective, it's hard to imagine a better outcome from this whole Politico Playbook thing. Straight out of the Tom Cotton playbook (sorry I couldn't find a synonym)

Gingrich, Nov. 5: "My hope is that President Trump will lead the millions of Americans who understand exactly what's going on. ... they're trying to steal the presidency, and we should not allow them to do that." https://t.co/SOAa6Upm8a https://t.co/L01RpSZmcS

Yes, but he meant that neither seriously nor literally, but financially. https://t.co/g7rMGTl8ha

Gingrich on "corrupted" election, Jan. 5: "I think this is the most dangerous assault on the very nature of America, certainly in our lifetime, and maybe since the previous Civil War." https://t.co/k9RKaoz7CM https://t.co/L01RpSZmcS

In the 2 weeks following Fox News' call of the election, it cast doubts on the results nearly 800 times. Wow. https://t.co/Eo3wilL7f6
