What’s in a name.

July 5, 2020

This week in Washington DC may finally bring Redskins name being taken off the NFL team A hopeful precursor to Trump name being taken off the White House.

 

Whatever gets decided on the potential Redskins name change, figure it’s a slam dunk at this point. Not just the mood of the county, but in a year where NFL teams might not be able to sell tickets, a new name will probably make merchandise for Washington DC’s team the hottest selling in the league.

AP reports Rochester NY police say Frederick Douglass statue was taken from its base & damaged Sunday in Maplewood Park, a site along Underground Railroad where Douglas & Harriet Tubman helped slaves escape. Thinking we might wait long time for Trump to condemn THIS statue attack.

RIP Nick Cordero. Saw him in “The Bronx Tale” just a few years ago. He was 41 years old. Trump is wrong. Wear. A. Mask.

Also for those thinking they can’t  get COVID-19 from 1 random encounter?

Old birthday math problem: It’s 2 in 365 chance of having same birthday as someone you meet. But with only 23 ppl,   it’s 50-50 chance of at least 2 people having same birthday. In room of 75 it’s 99.9% chance of at least 2 people matching. Wear. A. Mask.

Seeing a lot of people talking about Joe Biden’s  VP choice needing to be “an experienced campaigner.” Does anyone think we’re going to have anything like a regular campaign experience this fall?

Hey folks, it’s not that Kanye will get actual votes. Too late for him to be on ballots. But the media will give his BS rants and attacks more attention than they give Biden’s speeches.

 

1. A vote for anyone but Joe Biden is a vote for Trump. 2. Not voting in November 3 election is a vote for Trump. Any questions?

 

If we originally called COVID-19 the China Virus because it originated in China, seems fair that we rename it #TrumpVirus because it’s now spreading like wildfire through the US because of Trump.

Nothing to worry about

If you’re young.

Atlanta Braves star Freddie Freeman has COVID-19. Wife says it “hit him like a ton of bricks.  He has “body aches, headaches, chills & high fever.” “He’s someone who never gets sick; hit him like ton of bricks. We haven’t gone to grocery store, we haven’t gone out to dinner, we haven’t seen friends, ..still got it.”

Freeman is 30.

David Price is sitting out the 2020 season, saying the decision “is in the best interest of my health and my family’s health.” Whatever you think about Price, he’s a graduate of Vanderbilt, one of the top universities in the country, and he is not a stupid man.

Also, Buster Posey now says he’s considering opting out of MLB’s 2020 season depending how pandemic goes in next couple weeks. Posey was valedictorian of his high school & academic All-American at Florida State. 

I’m sure our Founding Fathers would be so proud they fought for Independence from a mad King so we could have a mad President spend the day rage tweeting from the White House.

Oh please oh please can someone ask Trump on camera what he thinks about mobs tearing down the statue of George Hanover in New York City?

July 9, 1776 – George Hanover was also known as King George III.

 

Your reminder, as Trump continues his COVID-19 lies, including his China travel ban, the EU has lifted their travel ban for residents of 15 countries. China is on the list. USA still banned. So much winning.

Kimberly Guilfoyle and Don Jr say they will drive back from South Dakota to DC. (Presumably they were going to fly on Air Force One.) Secret service agents overseeing the trip will need to isolate for two weeks. Your tax dollars at work.

 

Speaking of American heroes, thinking the first statue President Biden might commission will be a tribute to essential workers who are risking their lives to help us through this pandemic.

Kanye running for President?! Go home, 2020, you’re drunk.

 

 

If you wonder how we got into this nightmare, a simple sentence – Kanye West announcing he is running for President has gotten more attention today than anything Joe Biden has said..

 

Let me be very very very clear: Any vote for ANYONE not named  Joe Biden is a vote for Trump. Pass it on.
