Gone fish.

June 20, 2018


Good news for SF Giants fans. After today team doesn’t need to see Marlins until 2019!

14 pitch AB for the SF Giants’ Gorkys Hernandez. Brandon Belt has to be thinking “Isn’t that cute.”

A Phillies fan was slightly injured with a slight facial hematoma Monday night when she was hit by a hot dog launched by the Phillie fanatic.   The team did make sure she didn’t have a concussion,  though she will have a black eye for a while.

What’s particularly newsworthy – the woman will NOT sue. There’s hope for America.

Stanford star basketball player is going to be a graduate transfer and play at Kentucky next year. “The biggest thing that I wanted was to align both my academic and my athletic interests…”
And he said the first part of that sentence with a straight face.

Even in tough times, we’ll always have Darwin awards – Tourists on Big Island are getting arrested for taking selfies near lava from Mt. Kilauea


Who knew Peter Fonda was still alive?

Trump said he had no authority to stop family separation at the border, now he signed an Executive Order keeping families together. So will he fire himself?

Now Trump is lauding his “political courage” in reversing his own policy. Courage in what? Disagreeing with one of the voices in his head?

That moment you’re in such a hurry to fix a PR disaster you created that your team of “best people” misspells separation as “seperation.” #ExecutiveOrder

Trump on family separation “Ivanka feels very strongly about it. My wife feels very strongly about it. I think anybody with a heart feels very strongly about it.”
Translation, if it were up to me i’d keep them separated. #noheart

Waiting for Laura Ingrahame to claim that #ExecutiveOrder will disappoint many migrant children by keeping them from summer camp.

Trump fans at Duluth rally shouting “lock her up.” Confused. Do they mean Kirstjen Nielsen or Sarah Huckabee Sanders?

Trump just canceled tomorrow’s annual Congressional picnic. Because the optics of lawmakers enjoying a party with their families were too much even for this White House?

Since Trump is so focused on immigration he could’ve told Duluth supporters he’d pay big $$$ if they moved to Florida at Mar-A-Lago so he doesn’t have to hire all those foreign temp workers….

If Trump REALLY cared about immigration problem he could stop most of it in ONE day. Start arresting & JAILING people who hire undocumented workers, including for child care, gardening, restaurant work, housework….

So as Trump pretends to fix the crisis he created, how does he propose reuniting the families he’s already broken apart, and can DHS even find the kids?

Slamming a door?

Hunter Strickland clearly needed to pay more attention to Lebron James. Who apparently figured out a way to hit a wall and only cause an injury he could play through.


Meanwhile this Marlins SF Giants series is about one more hit batter from being on Pay-Per-View.

I miss the times when Gregg Popovich finally meeting with Kawhi Leonard would have been the most intriguing story of the day.

In Turkey, father of NBA player Enes Kanter has been charged with “membership in a terror group.” Kanter has spoken out against the Turkish President. So how long until Trump again praises Erdogan?

Note to @realDonaldTrump – Insects and animals infest. People do not infest. Unless we are talking about you and your people in the White House.

Trump “to prosecute the parents for coming in illegally, which should happen, you have to take the children away.”
So is that how he keeps Melania complicit, by threatening to take Barron?

How has GOP gone from “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall” to holding children hostage to build our own wall?

To be fair, given his relations with most of his own children, maybe Trump convinced himself he was almost doing parents a favor by taking their kids away.



So if an immigrant girl is raped at a detention center and gets pregnant, assume Trump and GOP will force her to have the baby so they can deport it?

While Manafort sits in jail, Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski clearly is making a strong pitch for Trump to adopt him.

The gaslighting begins again from #FoxNews “President backs House immigration bills that ‘solve’ family separation crisis, WH says after GOP meeting
What happened to “you break it you bought it?”

So if this family separation nightmare finally ends assume @realDonaldTrump will take all the credit and blame Democrats for causing it. And Fox News will agree with him.

Fox News saying Trump trying to solve the immigration crisis is like saying arsonist has shown up at the scene of a 5-alarm blaze with a bucket.

Trump and GOP trying to tie reuniting children with parents to a border wall? “Terrorist” – noun – a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
