Trophy Wife?


 I have seen lots of joking and jesting about Fred Thompson’s so-called trophy wife, Jeri, who is 24 years younger than Fred and, I suppose, relatively easy on the eyes.  But I had never heard her speak until yesterday when I was watching Fox News’ “Big Idea” while on a treadmill at the gym.

 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.
