Â I haveÂ seen lots of joking and jesting about Fred Thompson’s so-called trophy wife, Jeri, who isÂ 24 years younger than Fred and, I suppose,Â relatively easy on the eyes.Â But I had never heard her speak until yesterday when I was watching Fox News’ “Big Idea” while on a treadmill at the gym.
Â The woman is sharp, articulate and quite conservative in her own right. Fred should get out of the way and let her do more talking.
Later on, I played the interview for my wife and then asked her if she thought she had just listened to airhead, arm-candy as Jeri is being portrayed. She was incensed that people were talking about her that way.
Here’s the interview. Have a look.
