That moment that France has to take time out of a horrible day to remind the rest of the world that the President of the United States is a malicious idiot – “As French officials have said, water bombing might have collapsed the entire structure and was simply not an option.”

 

 

So leaving aside the nuclear codes guess someone needs to make sure if a major historical building in US burns that Trump is not allowed to give executive orders to firefighters.

As if Notre Dame Fire wasn’t depressing enough, now we’ve got conservative conspiracy theorists assuming it HAD to be deliberate, and Fox News headline using quotation marks “Notre Dame blaze being investigated as ‘accident.'”

That moment you read a Trump tweet and think it HAS to be “The Onion” – “if I were Boeing, I would FIX the Boeing 737 MAX, add some additional great features, & REBRAND the plane with a new name.”
(What, like that very successful Trump Shuttle?”)

Look, Tiger Woods is one of the greatest athletes of our time.  And he’s been great for golf as a sport.  But a Presidential Medal of Freedom? Is Trump awarding it to him for his Masters’ win, or for being a fellow example of success and applause after repeatedly cheating on his wife?

Some Orthodox Jewish families in Brooklyn are suing New York City over being ordered to vaccinate their children for measles.

Wall Street Journal awarded Pulitzer for coverage of Michael Cohen’s hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels, NYTimes won reporting award for investigation into Trump’s tax claims. Maybe that’s why Trump is so cranky today.

 

Well, not only did most of the country go to sleep in second half of Warriors-Clippers game, so apparently did the Warriors.

Any other day the news would be calling that game a Golden State dumpster fire.
