National treasure?

October 17, 2019

So all Nationals needed to make it to their first World Series  was to get rid of Bryce Harper?

Washington fans are hoping their team doesn’t forget how to play baseball by the time the ALCS, rained out yesterday, is finished.

Apparently unhappy Yankees fans were throwing water bottles and baseball on the field at Astros players yesterday. Not beer at least. Suppose at Yankee stadium beer is too expensive to throw.

The Los Angeles Angels have reached an agreement with Joe Maddon to make him their next manager.  Hope Joe doesn’t get too bored.  As said in “Little Big League”  – “It’s the American League, they have the DH, how hard can it be?”

 

 

Trump said this picture was Nancy having a meltdown.

Alec Baldwin, on Felicity Hoffman “My heart goes out to Felicity, (her husband) Bill Macy and their family. I don’t think anyone involved in the college fraud cases should go to prison. That includes past cases as well. Community service, fines, yes. But prison time, no.”

#NotTheOnion Official White House feed. “The United States and Italy are bound together by a shared cultural and political heritage dating back thousands of years to Ancient Rome.”

Short version, POTUS actually wrote a letter to the leader of Turkey ending “Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool. I will call you later.” This would be a lot funnier if it were satire.

And Erdogan apparently threw the letter in the trash.  Of course, maybe the Turkish leader felt that if Trump really cared about Turkey instead of Pence he’d have come with his  favorite senior advisor Ivanka?

Not particularly religious but pretty sure Elijah Cummings is in a better place now than Donald Trump will ever be.

 

Donald Trump Jr. after Hannity said Hunter Biden had foreign opportunities only because “they’re really buying favor with the father.” “Of course they are. When you’re the father & your son’s entire career is dependent on that, they own you.” Some statements don’t need a punchline.
