Not putting out fires.

April 5, 2017

Early times. But thinking #SFGiants bullpen pitchers who were optioned to AAA this might not want to get too settled in Sacramento.

Three days into the season, the only undefeated team in the National League is the Washington Nationals.    Maybe even the baseball gods are feeling sorry for D.C. these days.

 Spurs proved tonight against the Lakers you don’t officially need to rest players to have the team basically take the night off.
Dustin Johnson may not play in the Masters.  His agent said he hurt his back falling down stairs. Was Dustin washing his truck at the time?
Marshawn Lynch is apparently planning to un-retire. “The first time is the hardest” said Brett Favre.

A Northern California woman sustained major injuries but is expected to survive after she tried to take a selfie in a restricted area of the Foresthill Bridge. Another Darwin #Misseditbythatmuch

Germany may start fining social networking sites up to $50 million if they don’t remove hate speech/”fake news.” Will there be @POTUS exception.

#BarryManilow, happily married to his long-term partner, in an interview with People Magazine  -“I thought I would be disappointing (fans) if they knew I was gay,”

Right, at least 2 of them were shocked.

Rumors are that actor Jimmie Walker (JJ) of Good Times is dating Ann Coulter. Wow. never dreamed JJ might be gay.
Trump really wants to play blame game on this intelligence controversy; maybe he should look at idiot who tweeted out the Obama accusation.
Trump has removed Bannon from the National Security Council. Will Bannon be replaced by Ivanka or Jared or both?
WH says Bannon out from National Security Council because he’s no longer needed to keep an eye on Flynn. So Trump just appointed him as NSC’s 1st babysitter?
Ivanka Trump, about living in DC for 1st time “I treat it almost like I’m a visitor.” Maybe she doesn’t think they’ll be in town that long?
Trump on Bill O’Reilly ““I think he’s a person I know well — he is a good person, personally I think he shouldn’t have settled, Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”
Translation – he didn’t do anything I wouldn’t have done?
Trump says Bill O’Reilly, who’s settled $13 mill of lawsuits, is innocent. Anyone is surprised after $25 million in Trump Univ. settlements?
So just wondering, other than Jared and Ivanka, should anyone in the Trump administration sign a long-term lease in Washington?
Reports are now that Russian generated fake news stories were allegedly focused for social media in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania & Michigan. So as @FullFrontalSamB said today Russia had a better Midwest strategy than Hillary Clinton. Ouch.
As various foreign policy crises occur. Trump’s response yesterday “I’m not, and I don’t want to be, the president of the world I’m the President of the United States — and from now on it’s going to be America first.”
Never thought I’d miss “shining city on a hill.”
Apparently reporting of violent crimes, including rape, by Hispanics across the country is way down. Some may think, sad, but not my problem, if undocumented immigrants have bad things happen to them they have only themselves to blame for being here illegally. But what happens if someone sees a crime against a US citizen, but is still afraid of going to the police?

Bottom of the barrel

April 5, 2017

NBA game tonight featured Nets vs 76ers, with 46 wins between them. Five words “Thank heaven it’s baseball season.”

At Johnny Cueto line drive to right field Tuesday night in his second at bat was first time an SF Giants pitcher has been retired in 2017. #pitcherswhorake

Nothing is certain but death, taxes, and the Dodgers struggling against lefties.

Lexi Thompson lost an LPGA tournament because a fan called in the next day saying officials missed Thompson slightly moving her ball. In related news, the St. Louis Cardinals called MLB. They want that 1985 World Series trophy. #DonDenkinger.

Last night’s #nationalchampionship did answer one question “Whatever happened to all those replacement refs?”

#TonyRomo is going to retire from professional football. So that still mean there’s a chance he could sign with the #49ers.

Although it’s tough, Tony Romo retiring less than 6 months after the Cubs win the World Series.    Double blow for comedy writers.

A picture is circulating of 6’5″ NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio crammed into a coach seat on a cross-country Delta flight. “Don’t even think about it” said Chris Christie.

And I thought “He went to Jared” was irritating enough when it was just a jewelry commercial.

The Islamic State said today the United States was drowning and “being run by an idiot.” @PRESlDENTBANNON responds “I am not an idiot.”

 

Spicer attacks ProPublica, Trump Jr. says Pizzagate blogger deserves a Pulitzer. Just another day in the new abnormal.

 

Got it, everything inherited that’s good, like low unemployment & a recovering economy is Trump’s doing, Bad stuff like Syria Obama’s fault.

22 companies have pulled ads from Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News show. Could put the show in jeopardy, not for sexual harassment but for $$$.

North Korea reportedly fired a ballistic missile towards Japan. Waiting for Trump to respond after getting intelligence briefing from Jared.

Ivanka Trump says she doesn’t know what it means to be “complicit.” Well, another example of overrated expensive private school educations.

Trump called Putin w/ his condolences on St Petersburg subway bombing, Vladimir appreciated it as he hadn’t heard from Donald in 12 hours.

Trump now finds time to tweet about Drudge report but nothing on Russia bombing. Because no Americans killed & bomber wasn’t an immigrant?

So while Trump is tweeting outrage on leaks think he could spare a little outrage and compassion for dead children in Syria?
