Get out the blue violins

May 16, 2018

 

 

 

Yesterday’s storms meant about 500,000 people without power in New Jersey-New York area. Not including the Mets.

If the Vegas Golden Knights win the Stanley Cup, will they vote a playoff share to the Pittsburgh Penguins?  Who left Marc-Andre Fleury unprotected in the expansion draft?

Facebook keeps asking me to “add your phone number to help secure your account and more.” Yeah, it’s that “and more” I’m worried about.

Do have to thank Meghan Markle for reminding many of us that maybe our families are not so crazy after all. #RoyalWedding

Without Net Neutrality millions of Americans may never learn if it’s Yanny or Laurel

Who cares if it’s #Laurel or #Yanny on the audio? We all know they’re both wearing white and gold dresses.

So how long until Aaron Schlossberg gets offered a job in Trump administration?

Or wait, doesn’t Roy Moore need another “Jew” lawyer?

 

Really trying to wrap my head around what would happen if a black person tried to call the cops to say a white person was behaving suspiciously or being loud?

Don Jr now trying to claim he really never spends much time talking to his father. Who does he want us to think he is, Barron?

Trump on North Korea’s threat to cancel their summit “We haven’t seen anything. We haven’t heard anything.”
Translation, it hasn’t been covered on “Fox and Friends.”

Trump reportedly earned $40 million from Trump Hotel in Washington, DC in 2017.  $40 million. Earnings, not just revenue.  Hotel has 263 rooms, that’s over $150,000 PER ROOM.

Trump on immigrants -“You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people; these are animals.”
Who’d a thunk John Kelly’s “rural” and uneducated would seem kind by comparison?

And some Trump supporters completely lost it over being called “deplorable?” Sorry, if you’re not upset about “These aren’t people. These are animals” then “deplorable” might be too nice a term.

 

As the week keeps getting worse for @realDonaldTrump, weather forecast is for rain, rain and more rain in DC. So he’ll be stuck in White House unable to golf. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Tweet from   Jerry Brown. Even more impressive,  California’s 80 year old governor not only knows how to use emojis, he found a Pinocchio one.

🤥 is lying on immigration, lying about crime and lying about the laws of CA. Flying in a dozen Republican politicians to flatter him and praise his reckless policies changes nothing. We, the citizens of the fifth largest economy in the world, are not impressed.

But not by me?

Now it’s Robinson Cano. And he blames a doctor. Would be interesting if MLB said “Okay, first person who actually admits he was trying to cheat gets their suspension cut in half.”

 

SF Giants tonight offered 2 for 1 Nachos tonight at AT&T Park. Love deals but really, 2 orders of Nachos? Most of time even a few people sharing an order can’t finish one.

New Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper in 2016 referred to Hillary Clinton’s “questionable judgment” but indicated Trump “may be demented, narcissistic and a scumbag.” Who says this year’s NFL season will be boring?

NBA fans learning what Butler fans knew a long time ago. Brad Stevens is a damn good coach.   Wonder if Lebron will try to hire him.

 

RIP Tom Wolfe. Remember those days when the golden crumbs off the golden cake were as much swampiness as we could imagine?

 

Aspen is increasing fines for tourists harassing wildlife by taking selfies, especially bear selfies. Hope some of the money goes into a fund for Darwin Awards to be given to the tourists’ families.

Ah technology. American Airlines today had passengers check bags on a flight because they were going to be out of overhead bin room. But client reported half-empty bins, and then “Flight attendant just explained it. They use software that’s all screwed up. There’s tons of room. Apparently attendants are very unhappy about the new software!”

From American Airlines’ new service animal policy “Animals won’t be permitted in the cabin if they display any form of disruptive behavior that can’t be successfully corrected or controlled, including but not limited to: growling, biting or attempting to bite, jumping on or lunging at people.”
Hmm, can they have the same policy for children?

Whole Foods is going to give discounts to Amazon Prime customers. So for those Prime folks instead of “Whole” will it only be “Three-quarters” Paycheck?

Trump just eliminated US top cyber security adviser post. Makes a certain amount of sense. Since Putin did such a fine job for him last election.

Justin Trudeau took to Twitter  Tuesday ““To Muslims in Canada and around the world, I wish you a blessed & peaceful Ramadan. #Ramadan Mubarak!

Just guessing we won’t see the same tweet from Trump.

Will @realDonaldTrump demand two Nobel Peace prizes if this latest North Korea threat turns out to be a false alarm?
