3:30PM ET - Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House joins the show to discuss the latest on President Trump’s agenda and Congress. He will also preview Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress.
4:05PM ET - Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio, member of the Freedom Caucus is here ahead of the President’s first State of the Union. He will discuss the activists showing up at Republican townhalls, the speed at which the president is moving to make good on his campaign promises, and what we will do with an uncooperative democratic congress. Finally, Jordan had an interesting ‘debate’ with the Governor of his state over the weekend:
When asked about Kasich's remarks in a separate appearance on ABC's "This Week With George Stephanopoulos," Jordan said the American people were saying "get rid of this law, we know how bad it is" in this year's election.
"We didn't tell the American people we are going to repeal it, except we are going to keep the Medicaid expansion," said Jordan. "We didn't tell the American people, we're going to repeal it except we're going to keep some of the tax increases ... We told them we will repeal it and replace it with a market centered, patient centered plan that actually brings back affordable health insurance."
Jordan said the House Freedom Caucus - which he co-founded - has worked on a replacement plan with Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul that "empowers families and doctors, not Washington." (h/t Cleveland)
4:30PM ET - Betsy McCaughey, is the former Lt. Governor of New York, a patient advocate and she founded and is now Chairman of the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths. McCaughey is one of the few people who read the monstrosity of a bill to put Obamacare into effect. She now has several ideas about how Congress can keep their promise to the American people to repeal and replace the bill; the President last night at the governor’s ball ensured the American people that there is a work in progress to replace, and not repair. So...what does this mean for the misinformation being communicated by Speaker Ryan? McCaughey has two words for Speaker Ryan, GET LOST.
"Paul Ryan isn’t doing his job," former Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey, R-N.Y., told "The Cats Roundtable" 970 AM-N.Y. "If he can’t do his job as Speaker, to hold these Republicans together and get a repeal and replace bill through, somebody else should be Speaker."
McCaughey sees Ryan's Obamacare replacement as merely "Obamacare Lite," something conservatives fear in how they're going to pay for the subsidies included in his plan.
"Ryan has attached things to his version of the replacement bill that are very unpopular," McCaughey told radio host John Catsimatidis. "He’s got to get on board with Donald Trump because Donald Trump’s program is popular." (h/t Newsmax)
5:05PM ET - Emily Shire of Bustle.com and DC McAllister, with the Federalist and PJ Media are here to debate and discuss the underrated, poorly watched Oscars, where people who are paid to read the lines that other people have written for them pretend to know more than the American people and bash the President they elected.
The first salvo against Donald Trump was fired only a few minutes into the Oscars — and then they just kept on coming.
In what might be an unprecedented numbers of jokes, allusions, and sincere articulations inspired by a single person during an awards telecast, Hollywood’s most luminous tackled Trump and his policies during the the 89th annual Academy Awards. From host Jimmy Kimmel’s opening monologue, to the acceptance speeches, to those blue ribbons on tuxedo lapels, there were direct and indirect references to the 45th president throughout the ceremony.
The Oscars got underway with a joyous opening musical number by Justin Timberlake performing best original song nominee “Can’t Stop the Feeling” that brought the crowd to its feet. Then Kimmel took the stage and threw out a slew of POTUS jokes.
“This is being watched live by millions of people in 225 countries that now hate us,” Kimmel told the Dolby Theater (full monologue video below). (h/t Entertainment Weekly)
