The name game.

June 16, 2017

Good thing Barack didn’t introduce Donald to Melania. Trump would have to divorce her just to undo another Obama accomplishment.

SF Giants are doing their best to get fans ready for 49ers season. When everyone will be thrilled if the team wins a game most weeks.

Apparently the Warriors will reimburse the city of Oakland the $4 million it cost to hold their championship parade. Which is a cool thing. Although it helps that the team made an extra $12-15 million by losing game 4 for that second home game.

Draymond Green & Lebron James arguing over who started “superteams.” Meanwhile, 25+ teams w/ no chance to win @NBA title thinking STFU.

Amazon buys Whole Foods for $13.7 billion. Wow. For that amount of money a family could shop at Whole Foods for a year.

A woman has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for sending her 18 year old boyfriend texts encouraging him to commit suicide, even telling him not to back out when he had doubts while filling his truck with carbon monoxide. Somewhat shocking…why wasn’t it wasn’t at least voluntary manslaughter?

Now Alex Jones is accusing Megyn Kelly of double-crossing him over their interview and is releasing secret recordings of their phone calls. What is that old adage about lying down with dogs….

Kellyanne Conway decrying heated rhetoric said “If I were shot, some would applaud.” She’s right
But Kellyanne didn’t have a problem with her boss saying this. “Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks Though the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

 

Similarities to #Watergate with Trump administration are an insult. Nixon had real accomplishments.

In Florida, after another court ruled against them, the state is dropping a 2011 law that would sanction or imprison doctors for -get this -discussing gun safety with patients. But apparently the GOP is talking about trying again. Once again, four words ‘pro life my ass.”

Trump says he is “canceling Obama’s deal with Cuba” but apparently the changes are minimal and mostly posturing. So by “cancel” does he mean take Obama’s name off of it?

Let’s get to the real important stuff for many Americans.  Can we continue to drink Cuban rum and smoke Cuban cigars,  and can MLB teams still sign Cuban ballplayers?

 

Trump says he is ending tourism to Cuba except for “educational” trips. Travelers will be subject to Treasury audit and will have to keep records of all their transactions in Cuba for five years.
So cruises to Cuba will be under much tighter scrutiny than Trump’s tax returns….

Why should US Citizens who keep detailed Cuba travel notes to prove travel was for educational reasons be more believed than FBI director?

Trump’s personal attorney has now hired his own attorney. Well, when it comes to lawyers, @realDonaldTrump is right about Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!

 

 

That moment when Ted Nugent decides “hateful rhetoric” is a bad idea before the President of the United States does….

White privilege in 140 characters or less – -knowing even if your son gets pulled over by police officer for cause, you won’t be planning his funeral. #PhilandoCastile

Trump tweeted “regulations way down, enthusiasm and jobs way up.”   Now, the US currently bans cladding used on London’s Grenfell Tower for safety reasons. Is this another regulation he will get rid of as unnecessary? #jobkillers? #peoplekillers?

 

Another liberal media type heard from – “This jackass is really ticking me off. And today…Cuba? F—ing Cuba? If he’d run a campaign promising to do everything he’s done in the last 6 months, he’d never have been elected.”
The writer, Ann Coulter. Actually if the two of them want to do something good for the USA, you might get bipartisan agreement on a charity-supporting debate on pay-per-view.
