Believe it or not, for a brief moment this week it looked like the Sunday shows would be consumed by navel-gazing about the Confederate flag. Now that SCOTUS has blown that up, it’s gay marriage with a side of ObamaCare. If you’re looking for table-pounding about SSM, Mike Huckabee will be on “This Week” and Bobby Jindal will be on “Meet the Press” to announce their pretend plans to roll back the Supreme Court’s decision. How will Trump counter in the populism sweepstakes? We’ll find out on “State of the Union” when he sits down with Jake Tapper. As recently as two years ago he admitted to “evolving” on the issue but insisted he still supported one-man-one-woman marriage at the time. Presumably the evolution has now ceased in time for the Republican primaries. Expect him to focus on the Court’s ObamaCare decision this week instead, not only because it’s an easier target but because he can use it to knock Jeb Bush for promoting John Roberts as a Court appointee 10 years ago.
If you’re gay-marriage’d out, Baptist leader Russell Moore will be on “Face the Nation” to chat about his widely circulated op-ed this week calling for South Carolina to take down the rebel flag. The money quote: “The cross and the Confederate flag cannot co-exist without one setting the other on fire.” The full line-up is at the AP.
