Gentlemen, start your consciences?

June 8, 2020

ESPN headline “NASCAR vows to do better job addressing racial injustice.” Waiting to see the cynics claim NASCAR is just pandering to both of their black fans.

Trump tweet -“Could it be even remotely possible that in Roger Goodell’s rather interesting statement of peace and reconciliation, he was intimating that it would now be O.K. for the players to KNEEL, or not to stand, for the National Anthem, thereby disrespecting our Country & our Flag?”

And some said it couldn’t be done. Donald may have actually given the NFL the moral high road.

Maybe time to give up. As hard as I try to write snark and satire, I will NEVER be able to top this CNN headline: “White House is considering a Trump speech to the nation on race and unity.”

So Sunday it was Colin Powell.  At this point would anyone be surprised if Melania said she was voting for Biden?

As Mitt Romney marched with protesters today “… to make sure that people understand that Black Lives Matter…”

Did NOT have “Woke Mitt Romney” on my 2020 Bingo Card.
Hey Bill Barr, -“Pepper spray (also known as capsicum spray) is lachrymatory agent (chemical compound that irritates eyes to cause burning sensation, pain, & temporary blindness) used in policing, riot control, crowd control & self-defense, including defense against dogs & bears.”
Any woman who’s ever been cutting hot chili peppers and touched her eyes afterwards knows damn well about capcaisin. And any man who’s been cutting hot chili peppers before a bathroom break…. well, enough said.
If you missed Michelle Obama’s speech to 2020 graduates no worries, next weekend no doubt Melania Trump will give it again.
So now that Trump says “everything is under perfect control” in DC, what’s the next dog he’s going to wag to try to win reelection?

A proposed Trump speech to the US on race and unity makes me sadly reminiscent of those days of joking about George W. Bush being a guest host on Jeopardy.

Or Dan Quayle MC’ing the Scripps Spelling Bee.

Condi Rice said Donald Trump’s messages should be more thoughtful and rely less on Twitter. Did she also say Jeffrey Dahmer should have included more vegetables in his diet?

Some jokes don’t age well at all, but just found this I wrote in Dec 2018. It might still work: “So now apparently Ted Cruz is trending because he has a beard. Big deal. How many beards has Lindsey Graham had?

 

Trump 2020 slogan – “People are dying to re-elect me.”
