Charlie Hurt: Politically Unstable - Where news and commentary collide. Get the best of Washington Times Opinion Editor Charlie Hurt’s irreverent conservatism as he hashes out the big stories of the day with host Andy Parks.
Trump remains the greatest threat to The Swamp
“People voted for him not because he was nice but because he was right on the issues.” Washington Times Opinion Editor Charlie Hurt joins Andy Parks to explain why Trump is still standing, and how he emerged at CPAC very much intact and as powerful as ever inside the Republican Party. The future going forward is about election integrity, and that matters because of the other big issues like China, trade, wars and illegal immigration. These are issues that all voters care about, and it’s why Trump’s voice is so important right now. Charlie says Trump proved this week he aims to get back into the fight and swing away, dangerous as ever.
A deal for impeachment: Trump won again
“We’re still winning. Trump won again.” Impeachment 2.0 backfired, not once but twice. Charlie Hurt and Andy Parks break down what happened last week in the Senate and where everyone goes from here. Charlie maintains that the most nonessential outfit in the United States is the US Senate. The fact that they could stop everything to deal with this nonsense just explains everything. Andy asks, what is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell thinking at this point? Charlie says that McConnell is the one who has more power than any other Republican to realize that embracing the Trump agenda is the way out of the wilderness.
Welcome to Washington, 'Notorious MTG'
“Part of what is so appealing about Marjorie Taylor Greene is that her flaws are so ridiculously obvious.” Charlie Hurt and Andy Parks dig into the appeal of the new Congresswoman from Georgia. Charlie says she’s just another innocent victim in the whole damned racket. Andy sees a big future for her within the party. Greene called out the press, she called out every issue in which the government is failing the American people. Charlie reminds us that we are in the midst of a revolution and things are going to change dramatically in the next several years.
Trump terrorizes the swamp
“Washington will never be the same.” Charlie Hurt and Andy Parks dig into what they see as the future for former President Donald Trump. It is true he has been denied a second term. For now. But Charlie maintains they also stole his first term from him. “Democrats have a seething contempt for even their own voters, but especially those who would vote for Donald Trump.” In a town where everybody gets a honeymoon, Trump wasn’t allowed to work one single day without the constant onslaught of distraction. And as Charlie says, Trump leaves town unbowed and unbroken. He blew out of town much the same way he blew in… His way.
Biden's mandate: Don't call it the China virus
Washington Times Opinion Editor Charlie Hurt joins Andy Parks on this Inauguration Day to talk about the mandate of President Joe Biden and what Charlie calls “the dumbest administration on earth.” Charlie says the only real mandate is to be nice. Nicer than President Trump. “He’s not a historical figure, he’s just been around for five decades.” And, a look at the level of hate against Trump and his supporters, and how they may be denied an opportunity to vote for him ever again.
The impeachment of King Lear
Washington Times Opinion Editor Charlie Hurt joins Andy Parks to explain why he says Shakespeare would have been in love with Donald Trump. But first, what does Charlie expect in Biden's first 100 days? Is impeachment the top priority? "It's going to be a very, very long two years and it's going to get uglier than we've ever seen." Charlie says not only did Trump not get a honeymoon phase, he didn't even get a first term.
