Upping the ante.

After the team led by closer Sean Doolittle said  said they would make up the $100 a week difference personally, the Washington Nationals, owned by billionaire Ted Lerner, told minor leaguers on  they will receive their full weekly stipends of $400 through June.

If only shaming of rich white men would work so well in Congress.

 

Your reminder, in 2017 Trump tweeted that he asked “Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled.”
The National Anthem takes about 2 minutes.
He has not yet directly addressed that former Officer Chauvin was kneeling for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.

Hard to believe it was less than 3 months ago that I expected to wake up at least one morning a week being most incensed to read about SF Giants having blown a winnable baseball game.

If anyone still doesn’t know why I’m a Spurs fan : Worth the read. But a few excerpts from the national treasure that is Gregg Popovich:  “It’s so clear what needs to be done. We need a president to come out and say simply that ‘black lives matter….He’s not just divisive. He’s a destroyer. In the end, what we have is a fool in place of a president, while person who really runs the country, Senator Mitch McConnell, destroys the United States for generations to come.”

Anderson Cooper on CNN basically called Donald Trump a “Thug” on national television. And I have never liked Cooper more.

Meanwhile, All of us who aspire to snark are in awe of 88 year old Dan Rather. On Twitter today “Is Antifa part of Obamagate? Just trying to keep up.”

So I am missing all the tweets from those 2016 Jill Stein and Gary Johnson supporters reminding us how really, 2020 would have been no different with President Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump?

I’m serious. There are 53 Republican Senators in Washington DC. John McCain, if he were alive, would be expressing outrage about today. So what are the rest of their excuses?

Trump in Rose Garden “I am dispatching heavily armed soldiers” in DC to end “riots and lawlessness.” “We must never give in to anger or hatred.” Give in? “Anger” and “hatred” are your mission statement.

To sum up today:  Basically Trump just used police and tear gas so he could go to St. John’s Church across the street for a photo op, a church he’s probably never set fought in 3 1/2 years at the White House. There. Is. No. Bottom.

 

Speaking of Corinthians. 1 Coronthians 13 “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.” So who left the brass and cymbals out of Trump’s upside down bible photo op?
