STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): The past seven days have been a tough week for Democrats, from the scandals rocking Virginia, Gov. Ralph Northam and Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, to Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her troubled rollout of the Green New Deal. Our next guest argues in a new op-ed that the Democrats disastrous week highlights Trump's sanity. Well you don't read that much in print. Michael Goodwin is a New York Post columnist, Fox News contributor, he joins us live. No doubt about it, starting with the president's State of the Union on Tuesday. That was not a good -- optically, not good for the Democrats.
MICHAEL GOODWIN (NY POST): Right. You know, Steve, my point in this column is not so much just the president's sanity, but it is that you cannot blame him for all of the craziness on the left. You mentioned the way they behaved, all of the women especially, behaved at the State of the Union address. I mean, they wouldn't stand for anything, except when he recognized them. I mean, this -- this kind of sullen, grumbling feeling about everything, whether it's secure borders or we're not socialists, no interest in any of that. No interest in low unemployment among African-Americans. But, oh look, we have more women. Oh, great, that's us, that's us. But then of course you see what's going on in Virginia. You see what's going on in New York, with the taxes and the spending. All of this is of a piece that there is this irrational reaction to everything Trump says and does, as though everything wrong in America is his fault. But these are -- these are issues that have nothing to do with Donald Trump. These are Democrats' own doing. They are digging their own holes in these states.
