Stripe time?

May 2, 2018

Tried to turn on the Rockets Jazz playoff game on ESPN, and lo and behold, the Yankees game was on. Who’d a thunk it?

The Rockies sent rookie outfielder Noel Cuevas, with a cart, in uniform, to walk to a Starbucks near Wrigley Field and pick up various coffee orders for 20 of  his teammates.

Cuevas appeared to have been a good sport about it. But how’d you like to be the person behind him in line?

Washington Redskins cheerleaders apparently were required to pose topless for a photo shoot in 2013 in front of team sponsors and suiteholders, and some of them had to serve as escorts for the men. But hey,  not like the team did anything really bad like support players who knelt for the anthem.

So in week after #NFLDraft does any team ever say “We didn’t really get any of the players we wanted, teams picking above us nabbed all our top choices?

CNN headline “There’s a good chance you’ll soon see regular gas selling for $3 a gallon.”
And all of us in California are going? “Where, for how long, can you post maps please?”

So who had Ty Cobb in Trump resignation bingo?

18 GOP House members say “No one is more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize than Donald Trump.”
They just have the punctuation wrong: “No one” would be a more deserving choice than @realDonaldTrump.

I’m old enough to remember when idea that @HillaryClinton MIGHT be lying about her health was enough in many minds to disqualify her from the Presidency.

Imagine if it came out that Hillary Clinton had dictated a statement to her doctor to release during the 2016 about HER health.

Umpteenth tweet from @realDonaldTrump on #NoCollusion  Queen Gertrude was right – “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

Has anyone considered that Dennis Miller might really be upset because no one ever told him he created a perfect smokey eye?

How many facts is Sarah Huckabee Sanders going to have to burn tonight to get that perfect smokey eye tomorrow?

So let me get this straight, Michael Cohen paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about an affair that didn’t happen. Then Trump out of the goodness of his heart reimbursed him. Dr. Jackson must have been dispensing some strong stuff…. #RudyGiuliani

So in case of impeachment did Mike Pence promise Rudy Giuliani the vice-presidency?

Social media & every major news site trumpeting how Guiliani admitted Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen for Stormy Daniels payment. Fox headline – “Trump attorney tells Fox News Comey must be prosecuted, Mueller probe must end.”


Trump administration loves to distract with bright shiny objects. If Rudy Giuliani’s admitting @POTUS repaying Cohen was a deliberate comment to distract,, what can we imagine that something else might be?

Missed it by that much, and that much, and that much.

Toronto Raptors picked a bad time to do their playoff Maple Leafs imitation.

Lebron gave credit after the game to “my teammates” who were “unbelievable.” Shouldn’t he have also given credit to the Raptors shooting down the stretch?

As a @Spurs fan would be more worried about all this negative speculation about Kawhi if the man had said by way of a complaint himself. But hey, NY and LA media got to dream. #GoSpursGo

Many women regularly complain about going to a sale and having the good stuff all picked over.   Has any NFL GM ever said a week after the draft “Yeah, none of the players we really wanted were left when we picked?

A sorority at Fort Valley State in Georgia is implicated in a scandal where pledges allegedly participated in a sex ring to help pay their initiation fees. Doesn’t this sound like the plot of a bad porn movie?

House rebuffed Trump and voted 393-13 to reauthorizes FAA & not privatize air traffic control. Guess even the most pro-corporate interest types don’t want big business doing to air traffic control what they’ve done with US airlines.

White House now says a “clerical error” caused Sarah Huckabee Sanders to release statement “Iran has a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program.” It should have been “HAD” not “has.”
And they’re whining about eyeliner jokes?

Trump now “seriously thinking of the Space Force.” Who’d a thunk we’d miss Reagan’s Star Wars program?


Texas filed lawsuit Tuesday seeking to end DACA program. The lawsuit no doubt championed by Ted Cruz, born in Canada to a Delaware mother and Cuban father….. #Whythereisnosatire


Maybe we are going about this all wrong. Maybe the “liberal” media should report that Trump seduced his porn star and Playboy bunny mistresses while wearing a tan suit?

Trump doesn’t believe scientists and the military about the environment and wars? Why should we expect him to believe doctors about his weight and health?


Good for Trump to bring the crew of Southwest flight to the White House to honor their heroism. Now about James Shaw, Jr….


Amazing how many people who think Michelle Wolf is the voice of all liberals somehow also think Kanye West is the voice of all blacks.
