Mitt’s Grudge, Iowa’s Debacle, and the Best State of the Union Yet

With President Donald Trump acquitted in the Senate impeachment trial, Harison takes aim at Utah senator Mitt Romney for being the lone vote to impeach on the Republican side.

Vic comes on to talk about the meatless Whopper's lack of vegan bona fides, which has led to a lawsuit the Washington Free Beacon is closely monitoring. Finally, Kitty drops in to talk about Al Pacino's struggles with old age, Pamela Anderson's ephemeral marriage, and Adam Sandler's mustache.
