A little drafty in here….

April 27, 2020

Of all the useless arguments, and I’m good at useless arguments,  high up there has to be the  “who won the NFL draft argument?”   As in I remember at this time in 1998 when pundits were still arguing if the Colts made the right choice in picking Peyton Manning over Ryan Leaf.

 

Rumors that MLB might be considering new Rangers ballpark near Dallas as a neutral site for delayed 2020 baseball season . Wonder if San Diego’s Petco Park is on the list, as a SF Giants fan have never yet been there & noticed enough Padres fans for home field advantage.

Due to coronavirus concerns, ex-New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin released from prison only 7 yrs into 10 yr prison term over corruption charges. Given Louisiana history, considering Bel Edwards will be termed out in 2023, does this gives Nagin head start on a gubernatorial campaign.
Anyone else have a Lynn Anderson paraphrase running through their heads “I beg your pardon, I never promised you truth in a Rose Garden?
Interesting and kind of nice side note, while I was a Bill Clinton volunteer (then an Obama gal) who did support Hillary in 2016 election, just realized, of the six white men who were debate spouses during Democratic debates, the most recognizable was Chasten Buttigieg!
Tyson Foods took out full-page ad in NY Times saying the “food supply chain is breaking.” Understand that meat processing plants have had increasing outbreaks. But what was the purpose of Tyson letter? To ask for bailout funds, or to justify a big rise in prices?
Serious question, while I’m relatively low-risk, like many other women I’ve put off a mammogram this spring, others I know have put off colonoscopies, pap smears etc. What’s the death toll going to be down the road from Americans not doing normal preventative healthcare?
As Trump floats idea about trying to get damages from China over coronavirus, does he realize this would open up USA potentially to similar lawsuits for saying, sending cruise passengers home without testing and letting infected Americans travel after pandemic was a known event?
Diamond & Silk, have been cut by Fox News for promoting conspiracy theories and disinformation about COVID-19. How long until they get hired by OANN?
And as Trump today answered a question from his favorite OANN reporter: “What happened to your President of the United States should never again be allowed to happen.”
Is Donald talking about the woman who got the most votes in 2016, and SHOULD be our President?
When this pandemic is under control, with some sense of an actual death toll, beginning to wonder, how many of these meat processing plants still employ undocumented workers, and how many of them were scared into silence by fear of being turning into ICE? No joke.
“If an American president loses more people than in the entire Vietnam war does he deserve to be re-elected?”
And following the about question.  Today’s Trump fundraising email “Just ask yourself, would our nation survive a Joe Biden presidency?” About 55,000 Americans were today unavailable for comment.

Devil scouting ice rink locations?

Rumors that former Dodger.  Yasiel Puig might sign with the SF Giants.  Thinking NFW.  On the other hand, Madison Bumgarner IS with the Diamondbacks now.

Still trying to wrap my head around Jameis Winston with #Saints. But gather Drew Brees can teach him a lot. Starting with

1. Throw the ball to people wearing YOUR team colors.

2. Always pay for your crab legs.

(not my joke but seen on social media – Jameis Winston is going to fit in well in New Orleans. He’s already had five years experience throwing to Saints players.)

Is there something wrong with me that I really don’t care that Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari are divorcing?

Among the many trivial little things I am going to miss in a post pandemic world – bars that put out barrels of peanuts.

Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton rants Chinese students shouldn’t be able to come to the US to study science, (so they can return home and compete with American.)  Cotton thinks they should only be able to study things like Shakespeare & Federalist Papers – Both of which were written by immigrants.

Pretty obvious at Harvard he didn’t study history…checks wikipedia.   Uh,  “Tom Cotton graduated w/ A.B Magna Cum Laude; wrote his senior thesis on…the Federalist Papers.”

Doesn’t every woman dream on her 50th birthday of spending it locked up in a big house with an unhinged man ranting on Twitter?   Happy Birthday Melania.

Trump ranted this morning in a few tweets abbout Fake news and journalists Russia and “Noble” (sic) prizes.

Then Sunday afternoon – “Does anybody get the meaning of what a so-called Noble (not Nobel) Prize is, especially as it pertains to Reporters and Journalists? Noble is defined as, “having or showing fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals.” Does sarcasm ever work?”

But when I went to double check what he wrote originally, the “Noble” tweets were gone.

Just one question -If it was sarcasm why did Trump delete them,

Seriously folks, most of what I post is snark or sarcasm. And one rule I think I and probably all humor writers follow – if you get a good sarcastic tweet that goes viral, you DON’T delete it. #Noble

 

Can we offer Trump a Noble prize for his resignation speech?

Anyone else wonder if maybe today’s Twitter rant storm was because Trump knows he will NEVER be played on television by Brad Pitt? #DrFauci
