Treading water.

August 30, 2019

As SF Giants, with a record right around .500  decide how big an offer to tender Madison Bumgarner, hope they look at team record when he starts since June 20 – 11 and 2.

Arizona Diamondbacks have now set a major league mediocrity record by being within 2 games of .500 for 60 games.
Some may snicker. But Orioles fans haven’t seen within 2 game of .500 since opening week.’

Seattle Seahawks waived former Broncos first round pick QB Paxton Lynch, in favor of keeping Gino Smith as Russell Wilson’s backup.

But hey, Lynch will still probably get an offer this season before Colin Kaepernick.

 

Trump did seem particularly unhinged today. Is he worried about Mar-A-Lago? Or did someone tell him that even though he canceled his Poland trip it would be bad optics this weekend to go golfing?

 

 

Trump, asked if he was worried about Mar-A-Lago with Hurricane Dorian “You know, I haven’t even thought about it until the question was just broached a little while ago. Yeah, it would look like Mar-a-Lago is dead center.”
“I haven’t even’t thought about it.”
Two words. Yeah. Right.

Politico reports that Trump personal aide Madeleine Westerhout was fired for gossiping about Trump and his family – “and that the president did not like being in pictures with Tiffany because he perceived her as overweight.”
Really-really-really round pot, meet less-round kettle.

Tiffany Trump is a student at Georgetown Law School. If only she had picked a profession where she could someday get back at her father…

On a brighter note, Trump’s comments about Tiffany have made millions of American dads feel better about their own parenting skills.

White House says Trump faked phone call with Chinese leaders “to project optimism that might boost markets,” and it barely makes the news cycle.

Meanwhile, for most of us, attempted market manipulation is a felony.

So the same week Trump attacks Comey for releasing information even Barr’s DOJ wouldn’t indict him over, he tweets out a classified picture from Iran even his Pentagon says he shouldn’t have… Are we great yet?
