CNBC’s Larry Kudlow breaks down the new healthcare bill

CNBC contributor Larry Kudlow joins the show to talk about today’s deliberations over the new healthcare bill. “You have to separate the healthy from the sick,” Kudlow said. “The government, I think, has a responsibility to take care of the sick.”

“First and foremost, my intuition that something was really not right,” Di Amore said. “Secondly, I think it’s a miracle. It’s a miracle that I decided to run out of a building and run to the opposite direction into a parking lot where there was this kid (who had been injured in the attack).”

Former U.S. Attorney Matthew Whitaker breaks down James Comey’s Senate Hearing.

Former U.S. Attorney Matthew Whitaker joins the show to talk about FBI Director James Comey’s appearance in front of Congress yesterday. “This is a very fascinating moment in history,” Whitaker opined. “Jim Comey demonstrated again the sort of type of public servant he is. He’s unaffected by partisan politics.”

“If we lived in Hillary Clinton’s world, the Atlanta Falcons would also be Super bowl Champions.” Whitaker suggested. “Hillary Clinton clearly is bitter about the results and the Trump Presidency. And probably can’t look in the mirror and have an honest conversation with herself.”

Whitaker is also the Executive Director of The Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust.
