Heavy lifting

October 24, 2019

Trump now says he will go to World Series game 5 on Sunday, if there is a game 5. When asked if he would throw out the 1st pitch, he responded ‘I don‘t know. They got to dress me up in a lot of heavy armor — I’ll look too heavy.”
Uh, Don, it’s not the armor.

Anyone but me wonder if Trump picked WS Game 5 to attend in hopes Nationals will sweep and he won’t have to show up and get booed?


If MLB really wants to punish Rob Drake for his “Cival War” AR-15 tweet maybe they should make him spend 2020 season working only in San Francisco.

Only good news in tonight’s Warriors-Clippers opening for San Francisco Bay Area sports fans who root just for local teams:  Anyone thinking of budgeting for 49ers playoff tickets will feel pretty good about not needing to save money for Golden State in the postseason.

Trump has ordered not only the White House but also federal agencies to drop their subscriptions to NY and Washington Post. White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham. “Not renewing subscriptions across all federal agencies will be a significant cost saving—hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars will be saved.”  Gosh, we might save the cost of half of one of Donald’s golf weekends.


At this point Trump probably can’t decide whether to attack Katie Hill or to praise her.

How much is it eating at Trump to see Elijah Cummings lying in state at US Capitol and being eulogized by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle?

Tim Ryan has dropped out of the 2020 Presidential race. All together now – “Who?

A reminder for those in Congress of something they’ve ALL said publicly. – “I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

Looking at these recent first innings, maybe the Astros should consider an opener when Verlander starts now in the post season?

Now 2-0 in World Series and Trump STILL hasn’t acknowledged the Washington Nationals.  Maybe he’s confused and thinks the Redskins are the only DC team that regularly plays in October.

MLB had to be cringing at Astros assistant GM Brandon Taubman’s offensive outburst just before World Series.  Umpire Rob Drake “Hold my beer.” 

(Drake’s tweet – “I will be buying an AR-15 tomorrow, because if you impeach MY PRESIDENT this way, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER CIVAL WAR!!! #MAGA2020” )

As my son says, should be fun the next time Drake umpires a game in San Francisco.

But maybe Drake, unlike the Nationals, wants a White House invitation.

Just maybe mean bitch karma is not a fan of domestic violence? Especially making fun of domestic violence


Wonder what Popovich said to Spurs to get them to rally in 4th quarter tonight. Something like-  “If you lose home opener to Knicks I’m retiring right now?”


So when is Trump going to tell us which state’s residents he is building that wall around Colorado to keep out? Maybe Mitt Romney has him scared of that Book of Mormon.

Apparently 13 of the 41 Republican lawmakers who stormed a closed-door hearing today to protest an alleged lack of transparency have access, if they want it, to the impeachment hearings.   What, you mean it was all a reality TV stunt? 

Guarantee you one thing folks – If you or I stormed a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) in the Capitol we’d be arrested if we weren’t shot first. #HouseRepublicans

How long until Trump just tries to outlaw Congress?

Trump today declared a “big success” in Syria and said he would lift sanctions on Turkey over its invasion. Many Kurds didn’t disagree with him, because they were, you know, dead.
