Unnecessary risks?

January 16, 2020

One question many are asking, the Houston Astros were so good, why did they need to cheat? The New England Patriots say “Hi.”

 

Trump today complained that people are prevented from praying on the football field. Uh what? As a Saints fan I can tell you most people in the Superdome often end up praying, especially in the playoffs. Even the atheists.

 

Joe Burrow’s father says “if the Bengals do draft him, he’s going to be happy.”
Translation, anything’s better than the Redskins.

Regarding the current cheating scandal in baseball. Yes, I KNOW stealing signs has been part of the game as long as there’s been a game.
But MLB specifically ordered teams not to do it electronically. And the people getting punished disobeyed that order.
That’s amazing cocky. Or stupid. Or both.

 

Well, at least the Mets were undefeated in the Carlos Beltran era.

 

New Orleans police issued arrest warrant for Odell Beckham Jr. on a complaint of simple battery after he simply slapped a Superdome security guard’s butt in LSU locker room. WTF, do they think OBJ’s a Saints referee too?

JetBlue raised the fee for a passenger’s 1st checked bag from $30 to $35, and 2nd bag from $40 to $45, with a $5 discount if pay in advance. Dibs on “Less than 24 hours” for how long it will take major carriers to follow them. (But no, we don’t have airline monopolies.)

CNN correspondent Manu Raju today in Senate halls to Arizona’s appointed senator Marsha McSally “Senator McSally, should the Senate consider new evidence as part of the impeachment trial?”
McSally: You’re a liberal hack I’m not talking to you”
Even with climate change, who knew Arizona had such big snowflakes?

Congratulations to all those who had Rick Perry in Trump Impeachment Bingo.

 

Trump says he just got impeached for making a PERFECT PHONE CALL. So why doesn’t he come to the Senate Floor and tell us about it?

Now that it’s come out that Lev Parnas started working for Fred Trump selling condos over 30 years ago, how long until Donald Trump denies knowing his father?

To the victor the spoiled?

Apparently former LSU star Odell Beckham Jr was on the field after the national championship game, handing out cash to players. While there was a rumor it was fake, Joe Burrow said ” “I’m not a student-athlete anymore, so I can say yeah,”

Yikes, I like Burrow but possible translation  ‘I’ve graduated off the bus so now I’m okay throwing my teammates under it? 

 

“I think you called me a liar on national TV,”
“What?”
“I think you called me a liar on national TV.”
“Let’s not do it right now.. You want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion,”
“Any time.”
“You called me a liar. You told me — all right, let’s not do it now.”
Is this a Presidential campaign or an episode of “The Bachelor?”

So in the Sanders Warren tiff, Trump has announced he believes Bernie. Is ANYONE surprised? The only time Donald believes a woman over a man, it’s when someone accuses Bill Clinton.

Delta Airlines facing criticism for dumping fuel in Los Angeles area over elementary schools. With California prices, at least they didn’t try to charge people on the ground for free gasoline.

 

Sexism in two sentences: If Democrats nominate Bernie or Joe, and they lose, no one will say “Well, it just proves an old white man can’t win.” But if we nominate Amy or Elizabeth and they lose….

I hope Lev Parnas has good security. And a food taster.

So who’s going to be the first GOP Senator to announce that they are “very troubled” by this possible Trump-involved plot to stalk and maybe harm  Marie Yavanovitch

Who knew the Trump Hotel bar would make Rick’s Cafe in Casablanca seems like a church in comparison?

Why do I have a feeling that surveillance tapes at Trump Hotel are all in the same place as tapes of Epstein’s cell?

Meanwhile, no joke, this is the headline on Fox News site “DEMS UNDERMINED – Parnas throws water on Ukraine surveillance claim, ‘crazy’ texts.”
“Undermined?” I don’t think that word means what they want us to think it means.

 

Actually, it makes a certain amount of sense. As a travel agent I haven’t recommended Trump hotels in years, many of my clients, even Republicans, have indicated they won’t stay at Trump properties, and the Trump Hotel DC is usually more expensive than anything else in town, including the Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental. So with people avoiding the place for reasons from politics to their pocketbooks, what better way to make it feel like a private club where you can get away with anything?
