Where have all the flowers gone.

June 1, 2017

Though wouldn’t it have been more appropriate to let all the flowers in the #RoseGarden die before today’s Trump Paris Accord announcement?

Just heard someone on radio talking about this year’s NBA Finals being “World War 3.”. Perspective anyone?

So just how bad is the NBA Eastern conference this year?  #NBAFinals

Mr. Met is back on the field a day after giving the finger to a fan. He apparently is being cheered. Perhaps mostly by fans who want him to make the same gesture to the 2017 team itself.

Mr. Met was so frustrated by team’s season he flipped off fans. How long until SFGiants put mittens on mascot Lou Seal. #SFGiants #Mets

United Airlines  is starting the world’s longest flight 18 hours from Los Angeles to Singapore. Frequent travelers wonder how long until some baby sets a record for the world’s longest mid-air crying jag.

Reports are that Jeb Bush left Derek Jeter’s group trying to buy the Marlins over a dispute over who would be the ‘control person.” How silly. Why wouldn’t one of the best baseball players of our era want to yield power over a team to a man who did such a good job managing his own campaign to be President?

Think Trump might have stayed in the Paris Accord if they had only tweaked it to call it the Trump Accord.

Clearly big reason Trump pulling out of #Parisaccord is it was an Obama win. Would be better for US if he just peed on White House drapes.

So after the #RoseGarden ceremony pulling the US out of #ParisAgreement did @realDonaldTrump serve Ivanka’s champagne popsicles?

Trump on Paris Accord “we will start to renegotiate and we’ll see if there’s a better deal. If we can, great. If we can’t, that’s fine.” Translation,”I’ll be dead in 20 years, WTF do I care about the future of the planet.”

Trump tweet “My job as Pres is to do everything w/in my power to give America level playing field.” Including putting the field under water?

But here’s a crazy liberal heard from on Twitter – Lloyd Blankfein with his first tweet:    – “Today’s decision is a setback for the environment and for the U.S.’s leadership position in the world.

Blankfein is President of Goldman Sachs.

The @weatherchannel is trolling Trump after his Paris Accord decision. Standby for #fakeweather tweets in 3.2.1…

GOP Rep. Tim Walberg says “God will take care of climate change.” Like he took care of the dinosaurs and Noah?

Trump “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.” Uh, does he have a clue on their current economy?   Or their voting patterns?

Results for 2016 Presidential elections – Allegheny County, PA – @HillaryClinton 363,017, @realDonaldTrump 257,488. #Pittsburgh

Waiting for Trump tweet condemning noose found in Museum of African American History. Or does hate only count if directed against him?

While some in GOP mock Hillary for making excuses why she lost, they don’t mind Trump’s claim he lost popular vote due to illegals? #WTF.

So just checking, Trump DOES know that #ParisAccord isn’t a Honda car made in France?

Kathy Griffin got Trump so upset he actually talked about his son Barron. How far does someone have to go before he talks about Tiffany?

The boys of almost summer?

June 1, 2017

(oops, this post was delayed. I blame Trump.)

 

By Thursday night, wonder how many casual sports fans will remember who’s playing in the NBA finals.

 

This eternal break before the NBA Finals is making many sports fans long for the excitement of Super Bowl week.

Michael Morse is now on the 7-day concussion DL after running into  Jeff Samardzija during Strickland Harper brawl. Now who’s complaining Posey stayed put?. @SFGiants

Adam Silver thinks LaVar Ball “will settle down” once his son, Lonzo is drafted. Right, like Trump was going to become “presidential.”

Prosecutors drop charges for man who threw catfish onto Pittsburgh ice in game of of the Stanley Cup Finals.  Now . Pirates want to interview him for bullpen

Southwest is testing a faster deplaning process that will allow passengers to leave the plane through both forward and rear doors. Wonder if United is testing a variation where they just throw you off along with your luggage?

In Wisconsin, the GOP wants to scrap required concealed carry permits, citing $40 fee & the training required as  hassles for gun-owners. These are the same legislature who  want to make it harder to vote.    WTF?

#Covfefe or not covfefe, that is the question.

Spicer on “covfefe”   -. “The president & a small group of people know exactly what he meant.” So “small group of people”=”voices inside his head?

Whatever #covfefe is we can be sure that it’s Obama’s fault. Or Hillary’s.

#KathyGriffin‘s stunt was disgusting. But so were all lynching images of President Obama. Condemnation if real should be bipartisan. Period.

So pulling out will be Donald Trump’s response to climate change? Alas, that’s his same response for women needing birth control.

Donald Trump Jr.  tweeting about Kathy Griffin’s tasteless attempt at a joke.  “And I’m counting down having to explain it to my 8 and 10 year olds who I’m sure will see/hear about it at school. “
Doesn’t sound fun. Kind of like trying to explain to the children that their grandfather wasn’t really trying to grab women’s kittens.

 

Trump tweeted “I will be announcing my decision on the Paris Accord Thursday at 3:00pm. The White House Rose Garden.  Make America Great Again.”

Someone has told this man the Presidency is not a reality TV show?

Reports of demise of  Blackberry phones have been greatly exaggerated. The new Keyone released today already sold out and on backorder.

Question of the day directed at Sean Spicer from a reporter: Obviously [Griffin’s] conduct has been widely condemned, and it’s not a partisan thing to say joking about violence toward the president is unacceptable. But on that note, I wanted to ask about Ted Nugent, who joked multiple times about assassinating President Barack Obama, who said Hillary Clinton should be hanged. He was invited to the White House for dinner by President Trump. Do you believe that was appropriate? And if Trump is offended by this incident, why was he not bothered by all of Mr. Nugent’s comments?”
Guess this is why Trump wants to eliminate press conferences.

 

Meanwhile…. back in sports. Lebron after someone spray-painted racial slurs on his house. “As I sit here on the eve of one of the greatest events we have in sports, race and what’s going on comes again.”On my behalf and my family’s behalf, I look at it like this: if this is going to shed a light and continue the conversation, then I’m OK with it, My family is safe, and that’s the most important. Just goes to show that racism will always be a part of the world, a part of America. Hate in America for African-Americans is living every day, even though it’s concealed most of the time.
Emmett Till’s mom, actually, one of the things I thought of, one of the reasons she had an open casket was so that people could see what he went through as a victim of a hate crime. No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough. We got a long way to go, for us as a society, and for us as African-Americans, until we feel equal in America.”
