There's a double dose of me on TV today, Wednesday. First, I'll be returning to one of my favorite shows, "Varney & Company", live across America on Fox Business at 11am Eastern/8am Pacific. Then I'll be back for another grueling hour of guest-hosting on "Tucker Carlson Tonight", coast to coast at 8pm Eastern.
On Tuesday's edition of "Tucker" we talked everything from the constitutionality of FGM to the traumatizing effect of capital letters (in general - not just FGM). First up was the approaching caravan on the southern border, which I discussed with Juan Hernandez, former advisor to both Mexican president Vicente Fox and US senator John McCain. Click below to watch:
After which former ICE director Tom Homan responded:
Former ICE Director Thomas Homan blasted a Mexican state official who praised the actions of the migrant caravan and said that "they're a blessing to [America]... and they're not invading..."
"I just want to respond to Juan," Homan subsequently told Steyn. "Enough."
Homan said that to legally emigrate to the United States or seek asylum, people should go through the proper channels.
"Seeking a better life doesn't qualify for asylum, so they're committing fraud," Homan said of some of the migrants. "They need to be detained [once they cross into the United States] until they see a judge."

Later Brit Hume joined me to mull the Democrats' de-legitimization of Republican election victories. (If this video doesn't display properly, as apparently, it doesn't on some browsers, you can watch it in full here.)
And we ended the show in traditional style:

~It's a great privilege to be a small part of a show as successful as Tucker's. On Monday, his show was Number One in the much coveted 25-54 demographic, and Fox's Number One primetime show in total audience, with an audience almost as big as CNN's Anderson Cooper and MSNBC's Chris Hayes combined. Hope you'll tune in tonight for some pre-Thanksgiving larks.
