Smocking something?

December 18, 2018

New Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen “Internally, we would argue that we’re the favorites in the division right now.” Wait, I thought New York hadn’t yet legalized marijuana.

Redskins safety Montae Nicholson arrested early this am after he and a woman companion allegedly attacked another couple, Sounds like claiming Reuben Foster already has inspired his new teammates.

Damn, RIP Penny Marshall, not only Laverne but the director of “Big” and “League of Their Own.” No doubt she’s on her way to heaven saying “Are you crying? Are you crying?! There’s no crying! There’s no crying in baseball!

Trump is directing DOD to establish Space Command, aka Space Force. Does he think he can get Michael Jordan in charge?

Amazing, Tucker Carlson’s claim immigrants make the U.S. “poorer and dirtier.”
Wonder how many of the people who clean his home and hotel rooms he frequents are American born?

Wait, all of a sudden White House says they will accept $1.6 billion for wall instead of $6 billion. But why should it matter if Mexico is paying for it?

United Airlines is telling Premier members they now have free access to “Preferred Seats” – standard legroom but in “first few rows behind Economy Plus.”
Translation, most fliers will be now paying more not to sit in the VERY back of the bus.

Steve Mnuchin, asked about Trump’s “middle-class tax cut.”- “I’m not going to comment on whether it is a real thing or not a real thing,”
Translation – Trump made it up.

Today’s Trump fundraising email:
“..Your name is *NOT* yet on the Official First Family Christmas Card. President Trump and the First Lady have been working so hard to bring Christmas cheer to the White House……Because it’s not just their home. It’s your home too.
That’s why the official Christmas card we give them on Christmas Eve won’t be complete without your name.”
Uh, they won’t even be in White House on Christmas Eve, they’ll be at Mar-A-Lago.

 

The First Step Act is a good first step in criminal justice reform. But with such overwhelming support, have to wonder, why did Mitch McConnell refuse to bring it to the Senate floor until now?
Almost as if Trump asked him to wait to provide distraction on a very very bad day

Unexpected?

December 18, 2018

And yes, we all expected the New Orleans Saints to be on the cusp of clinching home field advantage throughout the playoffs because of their stellar…. defense??

 

And also  didn’t everyone have the San Antonio Spurs going 5-1 on their homestand by beating the now 20-12 Philadelphia 76ers and losing to the now 7-24 Chicago Bulls?

Your post Saints-Panthers game reminder, that while Cam Newton is a very good QB, it took a lot to be expelled from the University of Florida under Urban Meyer.

Must admit I liked the Woody Allen  movie “Manhattan”  MUCH more before I knew it was autobiographical.

 

Got an online ad for “official” Trump merchandise on sale for Christmas, IF you use the code ‘NOEL.” Wait, Noel is a French word. I thought we’re making America great again

 

Just thinking, if we have a Government Shutdown presume Secret Service still needs to guard Donald Trump. But to save manpower and money shouldn’t it only be indoors, meaning he shouldn’t venture outside to say, a golf course?

 

Utah just lowered DUI blood-alcohol content limit to 0.05, strictest in US. So any guy who wants to party this holiday season should be sure to be driven home by his most sober wife.

 

New report says that after the election, Russian disinformation teams targeted Robert Mueller. Now we might be talking the REAL witch hunt.

 

 

Your reminder that most people working illegally in this country flew in on visitor’s visas. You know, like at first Melanija Slavs, now FLOTUS.

If you are more outraged about Sarah Sanders not being able to finish her cheese plate than a 7-year old girl dying after being detained by the Border Patrol, you just might need to rearrange your priorities.

So if we DO have government shutdown Dec. 21 would that mean Air Force One is grounded from flying to Florida? Asking for a country.
