Out-of-work Joe needs something to do, won't rule out 2020 run

A lot of politicians don’t know when to call it quits --- especially the career ones. Take 75-year-old Joe Biden. Guys like Joe just can’t let it go. They’re worse than pro athletes when it comes to knowing when to walk away.

Apparently, out-of-work Joe needs something to do, because there he was on Sunday, keeping his foot in the door for a 2020 presidential run by showing up on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show. (I can’t believe I just said the words “Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show.”)

Biden’s eight-year paid vacation as Obama’s vice president apparently wasn’t enough of a victory lap for this former senator from Delaware. He needs one more go-round. I guess the prospect of a schoolyard rumble with President Trump is just too good to pass up.

Old habits die hard for career politicians.

Old habits die hard for career politicians. If we concede that guys like Biden can’t let go of the limelight, couldn’t he at least make it interesting and try to be original? Nope. He hasn’t even officially announced his candidacy yet, but on Sharpton’s show he pulled out the same tired, old party lines about Republicans trying to keep working-class and black people down --- that they especially don’t want them to vote.

This particularly tired party line is frayed and full of holes. In fact, it doesn’t even make sense. Of course, Republicans want as many black people to vote as possible --- they just want them to vote for Republicans. Funny how the same strategy applies, regardless of race.

If Joe Biden really wants to keep score over which party has fought more for the fundamental rights of black Americans, he’s not going to like the historical evidence very much. But then, Biden never has been a stickler for the truth. This is the guy who had to drop out of the race for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination after he was caught plagiarizing speeches.

For too many career politicians, like Joe Biden, the truth only matters when it’s convenient.

Is this what inclusivity and tolerance look like? Fox News host Tomi Lahren was at a weekend brunch with her mom in Minnesota when other patrons started yelling obscenities and harassing her. After a confrontation, someone threw a drink at her, the moment captured on video for social media.

On today's show, Pat and Jeffy talked about this uncomfortable moment and why it shows that supposedly “tolerant" liberals have to resort to physical violence in response to ideas they don't like.

President Donald Trump has done a remarkable job of keeping his campaign promises so far. From pulling the US from the Iran Deal and Paris Climate Accord to moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the president has followed through on his campaign trail vows.

“It's quite remarkable. I don't know if anybody remembers, but I was the guy who was saying he's not gonna do any of those things," joked Glenn on “The News and Why it Matters," adding, “He has taken massive steps, massive movement or completed each of those promises … I am blown away."

Rapper Kendrick Lamar asked a fan to come onstage and sing with him, only to condemn her when she failed to censor all of the song's frequent mentions of the “n-word" while singing along.

“I am so sorry," she apologized when Lamar pointed out that she needed to “bleep" that word. “I'm used to singing it like you wrote it." She was booed at by the crowd of people, many screaming “f*** you" after her mistake.

On Tuesday's show, Pat and Jeffy watched the clip and talked about some of the Twitter reactions.

“This is ridiculous," Pat said. “The situation with this word has become so ludicrous."

What happened?

MSNBC's Katy Tur didn't bother to hide her pro-gun control bias in an interview with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in the wake of the Santa Fe High School killings.

What did she ask?

As Pat pointed out while sitting in for Glenn on today's show, Tur tried to “badger" Paxton into vowing that he would push for a magical fix that will make schools “100 percent safe." She found it “just wild" that the Texas attorney general couldn't promise that schools will ever be completely, totally safe.

“Can you promise kids in Texas today that they're safe to go to school?" Tur pressured Paxton.

“I don't think there's any way to say that we're ever 100 percent safe," the attorney general responded.

What solutions did the AG offer?

“We've got a long way to go," Paxton said. He listed potential solutions to improve school safety, including installing security officers and training administrators and teachers to carry a gun.

Pat's take:

“Unbelievable," Pat said on today's show. “Nobody can promise [100 percent safety]."
