How the heck

March 13, 2020

Do you stick to sports when there are no sports?

 

Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert, who turned out to have coronavirus, was justifiably pilloried for carelessly touching other players in locker room. And Donald Trump shook as many hands as he could in today’s press conference.

Maybe CNN could hire Gregg Popovich and Steve Kerr as political commentators, since they aren’t doing anything?

Wasn’t a serious The Bachelor fan. But even so I long for the days when Peter and Madi’s latest and final breakup would have been the biggest topic on Twitter.

So last night Pete Buttigieg pivoted from being a Presidential candidate to a late-night talk show host. If only Donald Trump had had done the same thing permanently in 2016.

 

All Florida schools are shutting down for two weeks. When FLORIDA is the voice of reason….

Wonder if Trump will give time off with pay to Mar-A-Lago workers who have school age children.

 

Truman: “The buck stops here.”
Churchill: “The price of greatness is responsibility.”
Trump: “I don’t take any responsibility at all.”
Republican Presidents.
Lincoln: You cannot escape responsibility of tomorrow by avoiding it today.
Eisenhower: Leadership consists of  nothing but taking responsibility for everything that goes wrong & giving subordinates credit for everything that goes well.
Trump: I don’t take any responsibility at all.

Another reason to support Joe Biden for President. The man is capable of saying “I made a mistake.”

Maybe the real reason the Stock Market bounced up today is that after Trump Press conference  Wall Street is now sure we’re going to have President Joe Biden.

The coronavirus could kill 2 million Americans and Trump would brag and say without him it would have been 5 million.

 

Sadly and seriously folks…. did anyone think Donald Trump, the man who refuses to have a real physical so he can keep lying to himself would allow Americans to be tested for coronavirus, so he has to stop lying to the country?

More madness

March 13, 2020

For first time in history I will have no losers in my March Madness bracket.

Now March Madness is cancelled. No, let me rephrase that, the NCAA basketball tournaments are cancelled. We’re LIVING in March Madness.

 

 

Remember, it was only about 40 years ago, within many of our lifetimes, that we didn’t have ESPN. And now for at least several weeks, we basically don’t again.

With all the stress in the world right now it’s a great time to come home and turn on some sports for distraction. Oh wait, never mind.

Even the College World Series has been cancelled.  So fans of top level amateur baseball will have to wait until play is resumed by the Miami Marlins.

Broadway is canceled indefinitely.  A bit of gallows humor, but have to feel for the people who FINALLY got tickets to Hamilton.

Interesting that Miami International Airport, and for that matter Orlando, are NOT approved airports on Trump’s list for receiving passengers from Europe. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence they are the biggest airports within driving distance of Mar-A-Lago.

Justin Trudeau’s wife Sophie has coronavirus. Suppose if Melania got it that wouldn’t be any danger to Donald though, since contagion would require they spend actual time together.

While he says he doesn’t want to be tested for Coronavirus, Trump is STILL, as of tonight, sending emails about donating to his re-election campaign for a chance to meet him for dinner. Wonder if the dinner is scheduled before or after the end of the incubation period?

Serious question. If Donald Trump DID have Coronavirus, do you think he would tell us?

Is it wrong if when considering essential food supplies in case of USA being on lockdown you have hot sauce on the list? Asking for a friend.

Since there’s ALWAYS a silver lining, have to wonder how many couples with upcoming weddings now have the ability to say “Well, I hate to disinvite – fill in the blank with your least favorite relative – but legally we HAVE to be under 250 people?”

How long until Trump decides Dr. Anthony Fauci is part of the “deep state?”

Mormon Church has suspended all public gatherings, including worship services, indefinitely. So does this mean men can now live with only one of their wives?

Trump refused to meet with Nancy Pelosi over coronavirus relief, so per Politico he’s deputized Mnuchin to handle talks with the speaker. Considering that Donald has almost certainly been exposed at Mar-A-Lago and won’t be tested, thinking this is not a bad thing.

But on an positive note, today might have been the day Joe Biden became President.
