On their feet screaming

May 27, 2020

 

MAGAs and some conservatives clutching their pearls over Donna Brazile saying “Jesus Chr*st” on air while US death toll tops 100,000 is all you need to know about Trump’s base.
Seriously, guessing Jay Cutler with the Bears had probably millions of Chicago fans screaming “Jesus Chr*st” on a regular basis every Sunday.
Dodger Stadium has now opened as the largest coronavirus testing facility in state of California, and apparently can check up to 6,000 people daily.   Of course it could probably check more if people would start showing up sooner than an hour after scheduled start time.
Mitt Romney tweeted “I  know Joe Scarborough. Joe is a friend of mine. I don’t know T.J. Klausutis. Joe can weather vile, baseless accusations but T.J.? His heart is breaking. Enough already.”
Which Republican wants to stand up for decency and to be brave enough to join Mitt Romney in this statement? I’m waiting.
Department of Homeland Security says Trump has built just three miles of new border wall where no barrier existed before. Three miles?! Seriously? Jimmy Carter gets more done in a weekend with Habitat for Humanity!
As DOJ continues to investigate Richard Burr for insider trading, Kelly Loeffler, who seems as least as guilty, looks like she’ll get off scot-free.
I’m sure the fact Richard Burr’s Intelligence Committee came up with a report saying Russia interfered in the 2016 election, along with the fact that that Loeffler’s husband donated $1 million to Trump’s re-election, had NOTHING to do with it.
Now there’s going to be a tough decision for Trump: NASA / SpaceEx launch pushed off until Saturday. So will it be another expensive photo op? Or a golf game?
A real President who’d traveled to Florida for the SpaceX launch would be tweeting that the NASA delay was disappointing but safety always comes first. Of course a real President who cared about safety would be wearing a mask.
And if you think he’s bad on Twitter, this is Trump fundraising email “There is NO WAY that universal mail-in ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mailboxes will be robbed, ballots will be illegally printed out and forged, and the Election will be RIGGED.”
(so is donald sharing the GOP plan out loud?)
Got an idea for DonaldTrump  Why bother signing a toothless Executive Order because you’re unhappy with Twitter? Just put Jared in charge of creating an alternate social media platform and delete your Twitter account?
Problem solved.
Just wondering… If Trump came up with his own social media site to compete with Twitter, what would he call it?

Missed it by that much…

The NHL hopes to abandon the rest of the regular season and go straight into the playoffs with 24 teams –
So the 29-36 San Jose Sharks came about 3 games short of making the postseason.

Reports indicate two horses trained by Bob Baffert tested  positive for a banned substance in Arkansas earlier this month according to multiple reports. Well,  at least  horses can’t complain to the media it was a “tainted supplement.”

Asked again about his Breakfast Club attempted quip, Joe Biden said “I shouldn’t have been a wise guy. It was a mistake. When I make a comment that is offensive to some people I SHOULD apologize.” I miss having a President.

Asked about Trump and his insults, Joe Biden gets commended for understatement “looks like’s he’s having trouble controlling his own emotions.”

 

Kayleigh McEnany says it’s “peculiar” that Joe Biden wears a mask to a memorial, but not with Jill at home.   Guess Press Secretary Barbie doesn’t realize that people who are staying at home don’t need to be wearing masks with the people they are staying at home with? Or is it once again the question, “stupid or evil?”

CNN has a headline “Why won’t some people wear masks?” And there’s one simple answer for many Americans. Dear Leader acts like they are not necessary. Trump’s ego is killing people. Literally.

Don’t get me wrong… Richard Burr sure seems guilty of insider trading, but from outside Kelly Loeffler seems even more guilty. Except Burr dared cross Trump by apparently coming up w/ impartial report on Russian interference in 2016 election. This is how banana republics work.

Watching that video made me sick, and made me want to throw those Minneapolis cops in prison & throw away the key. And yes, it’s not fair the cops will get more justice than George Floyd got. But IMHO we don’t need vigilantism, we need to make sure prosecutors win this case.

Our Cheeto-In Chief is not amused “Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!” Fine. Show them what you think. Delete your account.
