More than one thing at once…

December 19, 2019

So yeah, I was obsessively following Democratic Debate all night. But also have noticed Spurs making a great late game comeback to beat Nets. Women can multitask. Elect more of us.

Projected top NBA pick James Wiseman, currently suspended 12 games over an NCAA investigation, has withdrawn from Memphis and declared for the draft.  Well, the Tigers were only 2-1 in the Wiseman era.

Wonder how long  it will take for Wiseman to declare his time at Memphis some of the best weeks of his life.

So did USDA add then remove Wakanda as a trade partner because Trump preferred better relations with Gilead?

Yeah, I’m biased at this point but Amy Klobuchar’s answer on impeachment should be a campaign commercial. One of the best cases for impeachment I have heard from a Democrat. #GlobalWatergate

All these talk of how tonight’s Democratic Debate is the least diverse…. Uh, at this point we’ve had more Presidents of color than we’ve had Presidents who are women.
And there are two women on the stage tonight.

Tom Steyer wants to take credit for impeachment. While at the same time, once House actually started impeachment proceedings Steyer stopped spending money on impeachment ads in favor of ads for himself.

Not a Tom Steyer fan, but he is right on this one. Trump is not against immigration. He is against immigration by non-white people.

Elizabeth Warren when told she’d be the oldest person ever inaugurated. She responded “But I’d be the youngest woman.” Well played.

So mentioning Trump’s youngest son in a sentence causes GOP to clutch their pearls, but implying a beloved ex-Congressman is in Hell is just “riffing?” Are we great yet?

Trump latest fundraising email praises Jeff Van Drew, “I’m PROUD to announce that he is officially the newest member of the Republican Party.”
Since Van Drew is all about saving his own a**, and is in a purple district, too soon to start a pool on when he will do something Donald doesn’t like thus prompting a twitter attack?

Well, of course Jeff Van Drew told Trump he has his “undying support.” We all know how much Donald values loyalty and reciprocates it.

Trump says tonight “I want an immediate trial!” Fine, then show up with witnesses. And take the stand. #impeachment

How desperate was Trump today? He’s retweeting a picture of him inappropriately hugging a flag, and a MAGA tweet complimenting him from September 2018. #Sad

Fight on and off

USC’s recruiting class is ranked last in Pac 12 and from 74th to 85th in all of college football. Did Clay Hilton use as a consultant Lori Loughlin?

Ouch, Washington Wizards led 93-75 with 8:21 left in the fourth and lost 110-109 in OT to the Chicago Bulls.  Or as Trump calls it, a great win. Anything else is Fake News.

 

As we head into NFL week 16, this from the very funny Hartley Miller  “A new survey says the average American wakes up grumpy 300 days of the year. Make that 365 days if your name is Bill Belichick”

Thought I have to ask  – is  “waking up Grumpy, the job that Melania delegates to the Secret Service when Donald oversleeps?”

Bed Bath & Beyond just announced the departure of six members of its executive team. Assume the company will at least will give all six a 20% store discount for life?

Anybody but me getting to the point when you see wines advertised as “age until at least 2030-40” and thinking “as if my tastebuds will be able to tell the difference in 20-30 years?”

Trump quoting Ken Starr on impeachment. “The evidence has to be overwhelming, and it is not. It’s not even close.” Is it too late for the Democrats to call as a witness Stormy Daniels?

Trump’s actions toward Biden resulted in impeachable offenses. But does anyone think Donald hasn’t committed crimes trying to get dirt on any of his other potential 2020 rivals?

Tulsi Gabbard voted “Present” on Impeaching Trump. Leaving everything else aside, she honestly thinks Americans might elect her to make hard choices?
Trump rally in Battle Creek tonight. Makes sense, his coloring looks as natural as an orange Fruit Loop. #Kelloggs

Donald Trump at his cult rally tonight “I could have Barron Trump go into Central Park and he’d get a crowd. He’d get a bigger crowd,” than Elizabeth Warren. Uh, Melania,  think we have a exploitation of a “13 year old who wants and deserves privacy” alert. #BeBest

GOP comparing Trump’s impeachment to the crucifixion of Jesus and Pearl Harbor. What’s next, they’ll say it’s as bad as someone saying “Happy Holidays?”

Wonder if someone in GOP was going to compare impeaching Trump to clubbing baby seals until they remembered that Don Jr, probably thinks that’s sport?
