Special delivery?

March 7, 2017

Tom Brady is partnering with boxed meal delivery company Purple Carrot:.”Eating meals just like the ones we’ll send out to our customers has really helped me stay at the top of my game.”
For $78 a week, customers will get six meals that are high-protein, gluten-free and limited in soy and refined sugar. The meals will also contain no dairy, eggs, seafood, meat or processed foods.
Wonder how many NFL fans will order the meals, and then supplement them with Papa John’s pizza?

 

Kirk Cousins is once again rumored to be going from the Redskins to the 49ers. Same dysfunction, better weather.

Joe Mixon was not invited to the NFL combine this year over his having punched a female student in the face in 2014,  and the league has instituted a new rule this year that bars players from participating in the combine if they have misdemeanor or felony convictions involving domestic violence.
Meanwhile, the Ezekiel Elliott domestic violence investigation will no doubt be completed about the same time the Cowboys rookie star RB retires.

 

Hawaii says their attorneys will file a motion for a temporary restraining order on Trump’s new travel ban. Waiting for someone in the GOP to say that it’s ridiculous for such a motion to be filed from outside of the United States.

British Airways is cutting legroom on their Airbus planes from 30 to 29 inches. They figure this will be no problem as passengers can just start emulating Kellyanne Conway and sit on their knees.

Asked why Trump keeps tweeting about him Arnold Schwarzenegger today responded “I think he’s in love with me.” Pass the large-size popcorn.

Jason Chaffetz ,who as a Congressman will have insurance benefits for life, said that on the proposed GOP Obamacare replacement plan “Americans have choices, and they’ve got to make a choice. So rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love maybe they should invest in their own health care.”
And millions of Americans want to know where they can buy health insurance for the cost of an iPhone.

#Trumpcare will be the best healthcare plan like #TrumpGrill makes the best taco bowls.

We could have great healthcare plan if Congress was REQUIRED to use same plan they come up with tor rest of country. #Trumpcare

Homeland Security wants to separate parents from children at border. So what do they do w/ pregnant women?

Trump tweet this morning “122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision.”
Except that 113 of the 122 former Guantanamo detainees Trump is talking about were released by W. Only 9 by Obama. #alternativefacts #alternativenumbers

 

#ChaffetzMath compares buying healthcare to buying new iPhone. Not a gun. Because no GOP politician would ever say not to buy a new gun

Sean Spicer to CNN Trump has no regrets about wiretap claims. As if we expected anyone w/ NarcissisticPersonalityDisorder to regret anything

The proposed GOP plan to “repeal and replace” Obamacare removes a provision that required insurance companies to deduct NO MORE THAN $500,000 of executives’ pay as a business expense.
Well, good to know those poor executives won’t have to choose between just scraping by on half a million a year, and hurting their company’s bottom line. #populistmyass

 

 

Trump today said the GOP healthcare proposal is “wonderful” and says “we’re going to get it done.” Anyone want to lay odds he has any idea what’s actually in the bill?

One brief shining minute.

So if the Cavs win it all this year, does Andrew Bogut get a ring?

(Bogut was injured about 30 seconds into his first game with Cleveland.)

Your tax $$ at work. Andrew Bogut, before his injury,  couldn’t practice before game w/ #Cavs today because of work visa issues. Ah those scary Australians.

After Kawhi Leonard’s 39 point performance tonight in a 112-110 win over the Rockets, which included a late clutch three, a block and then two game clinching free throws, the Spurs star got chosen for a “random” drug test. Will the test reveal if Kawhi was born on this planet?

Israel beat South Korea and Taipei in #WorldBaseballClassic. Shocking even serious baseball fans who didn’t realize Israel had a team in #WBC

GM to lay off 1,100 in Michigan. Somehow I missed the Trump tweet taking credit.

The Israeli cabinet approved a plan to decriminalize marijuana. Cool. Two words: kosher Doritos.

Meanwhile, in England, parliament is debating a ban on high heels in the workplace. Seems to me there’s a simple solution, high heels can be a required part of the dress code if men have to wear them too..

#BenCarson talks about “immigrants who came here in bottom of slave ships.” Proving again. even med schools have share of #cantfixstupid

 

Somehow I must have missed Ben Carson talking about the immigrants who built those grain silos in Egypt.

So now Kellyanne Conway says of Trump’s claim that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower “He’s the President of the United States. He has information and intelligence that the rest of us do not.”
Forgetting perhaps that Trump doesn’t believe in intelligence briefings?

The chaotic first Trump travel ban was immediate because “if the ban were announced with a one week notice, the ‘bad’ would rush into our country during that week.” The revised ban signed today takes effect March 16. So the “bad dudes” have slowed down?”

The U.S. Soccer Federation has a new policy that says national team players “shall stand respectfully” during national anthems.
So good to see such a fine upstanding sport as soccer is focused on what’s really important.

So it’s $200,000 to get into #MaraLago & hang out w/ Trump on weekends. What’s the price for where he’s planning to spend summer weekends?

 

Reducing # of insured by 20 million in US will take care of some of Social Security deficit. Can’t collect benefits when dead.

The GOP proposal to replace Obamacare would allow insurers to charge 30% more to anyone who goes without coverage for more than 2 months, or to anyone who turns 27 and doesn’t immediately buy their own insurance.
But this isn’t a mandate. The same as the travel EO isn’t a Muslim ban. #sarcasm
