MVC&R have known it since the war began, and President Joe Biden finally admits that he believes President Putin is a war criminal. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki scrambles to reassign blame for high gas prices, since the White House's “Putin's price hike” spin clearly was not working. Jussie Smollett is ordered released from jail after serving less than a week of his five month sentence, and The New York Times wants you to know the Hunter Biden laptop story was legit. Chris Cuomo says his “journalistic integrity” was “unjustifiably smeared” by CNN, and he is asking for $125 million in restitution, while Speaker Nancy Pelosi got annoyed with a reporter for asking about COVID relief money. Thieves stole almost 400 gallons from a North Carolina gas station, and Chick-fil-A could be declared a “public nuisance” in Santa Barbara, California.
The Boys were listening with the rest of the world as President Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke to both Houses of Congress, and President Joe Biden announced that the First Lady's husband has COVID. Senator Mitt Romney voted against lifting mask mandates for preschool-age children, and the media has united to shift blame for high gas prices from President Biden. President Biden doesn't know from which state Secretary Jennifer Granholm comes, and the teachers union made a sign to show solidarity with Ukraine, but the Ukrainian flag was upside down. New York Rangers fans booed during Governor Kathy Hochul's introduction at a game, and USA Today named a transgender Biden administration official as one of its “Women of the Year”.
MVC&R are praying for the family of slain Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski, who was killed in Ukraine by Russian forces. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claims the administration is still trying to take steps to lower gas prices, yet democrats are divided on whether or not to suspend the federal gas tax. It has been reported that President Vladimir Putin is cracking down on top intelligence, and military officials, because of numerous failures during the invasion of Ukraine. Jussie Smollett's family is concerned he may be beaten up in jail, and the governor of Mississippi signed a critical race theory ban. A San Antonio school segregated children and showed graphic autopsy photos in a “lesson”, and an NFL quarterback asked why there are pregnant man emojis.
The Boys are ready for an end to the outrageous inflation, but the Treasury secretary says we are in for another year of discomfort. Vice President Kamala Harris is talking about the importance of showing people they got what they wanted, and former President Donald Trump is saying it was his personality that kept us out of war. Tom Brady changed his mind about going into retirement, and it was hours after somebody spent more than $500K on Brady's “last” touchdown ball. A military reserves officer allegedly falsified recommendation letters for Afghans seeking special visas, and ABC News claims “six in ten Americans” want kindergarten teachers to talk about kids' genitals.
MVC&R are praying for the people of Ukraine, and President Joe Biden threatens a “severe price” if Russia decides to use chemical weapons. The White House's media talking points blaming Putin for inflation have been distributed, but an Obama economic advisor is saying the blame belongs squarely on President Biden's shoulders. Jussie Smollett proclaims his innocence and insists he is “not suicidal” during his sentencing hearing, and Florida governor Ron DeSantis absolutely levels Disney for their stance on the state's anti-grooming bill. Kim Kardashian is getting backlash for advising women to get back to work, and your Attorney General claims the January 6th investigation is the most important thing his agency has ever done. The Friday Five are continuing the celebration of Women's History Month – Best Women Rockers.
The Boys are not digging the outrageous inflation that has accompanied the Biden administration, and the key inflation measure jumped to the highest level since January 1982. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is saying President Biden's inflation is being called “Putin's price hike”. Elon Musk will pay Ukrainian employees if they have to go fight, and he condemns the rising woke trend in corporate America. President Biden is saying drilling companies are free to drill, and former President Donald Trump claims the Afghanistan withdrawal made Putin invade Ukraine. Russia confirms the use of illegal vacuum bombs in Ukraine, and John Kerry is warning of the onslaught of climate change refugees.
MVC&R would love it if someone in charge would do something about the outrageous gas prices, but President Joe Biden says he, “Can't do much about gas prices.” The director for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now saying COVID is seasonal, and the “Vagina Museum” celebrates International Women's Day by honoring biological men. Vice President Kamala Harris is now going to Poland, and Secretary Pete Buttigieg wants you to buy an electric car so you can save on gas money. The president of GLAAD says the gender identity curriculum does not exist, however, banning the nonexistent curriculum would be harmful to children. Socialist Representative Rashida Tlaib wants you to believe the surging inflation going on is not inflation, and an MSNBC anchor admits it is “insane” that the United States is not energy independent.
The Boys would love it if President Joe Biden was able to lower the costs, and the President says he is “using every tool” to do just that. The President also claims he is not hampering oil drilling in the United States, and the Ukrainian ambassador recommends Russia delegates seek mental help. A proud “Squad” member and “defund the police” advocate spent taxpayer dollars on private security, and the mayor of New York City believes toddlers understand they must wear masks.

The Boys have not seized any nuclear power plants, although tempted often, but Russia has taken control of Europe's largest power plant, which is located in Ukraine. The Labor Secretary wants increasing oil production off the table, and the International Cat Federation has banned Russian owners.

MVC&R are enjoying the circus of the stalled Russian convoy in Ukraine, and Governor Ron DeSantis told high schoolers to stop with the “ridiculous COVID theater” of mask wearing. President Joe Biden has a perplexing excuse for why housing is so expensive, and “Dr.” Jill Biden actually believes things are so much better now. The President claims we are going to lower the deficit by trillions of dollars, and the controversial trans swimmer says, “I am not a man.” Portland schools adopt a new climate policy, and the Energy Secretary says the “energy transition” is to blame for high gas prices. Border Agents react harshly to President Biden's SOTU immigration claims, and Melinda Gates says she divorced Bill because she couldn't trust what they had.
The Boys were quite impressed with the State of the Union speech, but not the one delivered by President Joe Biden. The speech provided for a lengthy montage of the latest of President Biden's audible stumbling, and an assassination attempt on President Zelensky failed due to Russian spies. Apple stops all product sales in Russia and restricts state media apps, while a Florida man blames President Putin for his running of a stop sign. While talking about the situation in Ukraine, President Biden says “we stand with the Iranian people”, and a nine-year-old snuck out of his house and boarded a plane without his parents. California is thinking of naming heat waves the same way we name hurricanes, and Chuck Todd blames the right wing echo chamber for the bad economy.
MVC&R are watching this nightmare unfurl in Ukraine, but the resilience of President Zelensky is enough to bring a translator to tears. The White House claims politics had nothing to do with the modification of mask guidance, and President Joe Biden forgets the name of his Supreme Court nominee. Disney will no longer release movies in Russia due to their invasion of Ukraine, and 12 Russian diplomats accused of “engaging in espionage” are ordered to leave the United States. President Biden is claiming republicans are trying to stop black people from voting, and Adam Kinzinger falls for a shoddy Photoshopped “Ghost of Kyiv” hoax. A growing number of companies are no longer interested in Russia, however OnlyFans has not yet hit Russia with any sanctions.
The Boys are quite impressed with the bravery and resilience of the Ukrainian people, and a Ukrainian soldier issued a warning to Russians in a cheerful video. President Joe Biden believes people just can't comprehend how great things are going, and FEMA reminds everyone to remember to socially distance and mask up in case of nuclear attack. The Centers for Disease Control predictably updated their masking guidance ahead of the SOTU address. Democratic socialists are blaming U.S. imperialism for the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and according to The New York Times, two new studies say COVID did not come from a lab. A Ukrainian man removed a mine from a bridge while smoking a cigarette, and Al Franken says the end of the world will occur when Donald Trump wins in 2024.

MVC&R are minus Jamie today, and he is not running guns to Ukraine. At least, it's not confirmed. Officials throughout the Biden Administration were expecting sanctions to be a deterrent for Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine, but President Joe Biden is claiming no one actually expected sanctions to be a deterrent to invasion. President Biden names his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, and Hillary Clinton is blaming former President Donald Trump for Russian aggression. (Shocker) The New York Times wants to know why they are not seeing more masks on the faces of Ukrainians, and Google decided to terminate their own mask mandate. Press Secretary Jen Psaki again has to clarify comments from President Biden, while “the 1980's called and they want their foreign policy back,” so we have a Friday Five just for that – Best 80's One Hit Wonders.
The Boys remember Joe Biden from 2019, when he claimed Putin's days of terror would end if he were to become President. The State Department squirmed when asked about the big pipeline, and a flashback of Donald Trump telling the head of NATO that Germany gave too much to Russia. The White House believes crazy gas prices are about standing up for our values, and the UN Secretary General wants to give peace a chance. Stacey Abrams refuses to say if the upcoming election is rigged, and experts now say there is a huge amount of learning loss. John Kerry wants to remind everybody that the Russian invasion is bad for the climate, and more absolutely brutal polling for President Joe Biden.

Todd then is joined by Joe Markley who expands on the idea of CT residents seeking to get involved in Government, and his view on the current state of affairs. Tune in weekdays 3-6 PM EST on WTIC Newstalk 1080 ;or on the new Audacy app!
MVC&R hope they never get sanctioned, but President Joe Biden announced sanctions against Russia. Press Secretary Jen Psaki doesn't think Vladimir Putin is intimidating the administration, and Tulsi Gabbard slammed Vice President Kamala Harris for remarks made on her international trip. The CDC was blasted for withholding data over fears the vaccine would appear ineffective, and Justin Trudeau promises to defend democracy in Ukraine. Senator Chuck Schumer has a goal to make abortion available during all nine months of pregnancy, and a New York professor is called out for saying she would “give priority to non-white folks”. A democrat Congressman wants to seize the truckers of protesters headed to D.C., and then give them to growing businesses.
The Boys have absolutely no problem calling the invasion of Ukraine an invasion, but an official at the White House is unable to state the plain truth. Bill Gates made an incredibly absurd comparison on mask mandates, and the Centers for Disease Control's lies have completely destroyed its legitimacy. More words of wisdom from Vice President Kamala Harris, and Indiana republicans gutted a parents' rights bill to appease the teachers union. The NFL world reacts to Aaron Rogers' rather cryptic post, and the Big Ten suspends coach Juwan Howard for the rest of the regular season. Acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse launches his “Media Accountability Project” to hold media and celebrities accountable, and the average pet tries to eat something they shouldn't four times a day.
MVC&R are keeping a close eye on the situation in Ukraine, and Vice President Kamala Harris says we need to put ourselves out there. There was a mass shooting during a “chaotic” protest in Portland, and an Olympic skier suffered frozen genitalia during the cross-country race. Canadian police are even going to punish people who left the protest, and Sec. John Kirby doesn't want you to judge the administration on Afghanistan. Critical race theory-related ideas were found in mandatory programs at 23 of top 25 U.S. medical schools. A trans child molester brags about not doing prison time, and Jacksonville set up sensors to figure out why Jacksonville smells so bad.
The Boys are big fans of gelato, and the Canadian gelato café owner is speaking out about getting doxxed for donating to the protesting truckers. Joy Behar does society a favor by announcing her intent to mask up indefinitely, and a Louisville mayoral candidate is not happy his would-be assassin is out of jail. Mike Lindell wants to airdrop MyPillows to the truckers, and Hillary Clinton hints at a possible lawsuit against Fox News. A memo shows President Joe Biden's border crisis will not be ending any time soon, and Matthew Stafford ignored a falling woman who ended up fracturing her spine. Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation is suspended from donations by Amazon, and honoring National Cardiac Rehabilitation Week with The Friday Five – Best Heart Songs.
MVC&R think it is time to unmask the children of this country, but Dr. Anthony Fauci says unmasking the kids would be risky. Justin Trudeau is saying if you stand with the Canadian truckers you are a nazi, and the invasion of America's Southern border continues absolutely unabated. Canada orders the freezing of 34 cryptocurrency accounts connected to the “Freedom Convoy”, and a .22 rifle is considered a “weapon of war” by California governor Gavin Newsom. Chris Cuomo is a “despised figure” within CNN at this point, and COVID data will not be released over concerns it will be misrepresented by anti-vaxxers. Tom Hanks' son says he didn't have a strong male role model growing up, and Clinton allies have taken over Black Lives Matter.
Todd is joined by friend of the program; Jim Watkins to speak on the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the fallout we continue to see as the numbers drop both in CT, and. nationally. Todd then rounds out the hour joined by Joe Markley for his perspective on the state of CT politics in the election year. Tune in weekdays 3-6 PM EST on WTIC Newstalk 1080 ;or on the new Audacy app!
The Boys believe the situation has very big ramifications, and President Joe Biden says it could impact our prices. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was heckled while delivering remarks on his dictatorship, and a school board member loses it when a speaker refuses to wear a mask. The mayor of New York City claims the media is racist, while the media seems to have come down with “laryngitis” after years of pushing Trump/Russia collusion. Multiple San Francisco school board members have been recalled, and Bob Saget's family is suing to block the release of documents related to his death. Four more cast members from “A Christmas Story” are coming back, and they finally figured out how to make non-alcoholic beer taste like the real thing.
MVC&R have thankfully not received a report card in decades, but there is another terrible economic report card for President Joe Biden. The deputy Prime Minister of Canada announces seizure plans for Canadians' money, and this year's Ad Meter results for the Super Bowl are in. It looks as if Russia may be pulling back its troops, while an Olympic official defends efforts to smooth over the Peng Shuai case. Netflix is referring to their price increase as an “update”, and the White House cannot say it's bad for someone to spy on the President. Justin Trudeau claims to be interested in restoring confidence in Canada's institutions, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blames crime for ending the extra child tax credit.
