Missing

July 15, 2020

Wednesday, tonight, which would have been the day after MLB All-Star break, after NBA and NHL playoffs, before NFL and college football games started, has long been a black hole on the calendar for sports fans.
I’m never going to complain about ONE day without real sports again.

Current reports that city Philadelphia will decry that Eagles games will not be able to have fans in attendance. But to give the team a sense of normalcy will they be allowed to pipe in boos?

Mexico announced Tuesday that “after checking the rise of the COVID-19 spread” they were closing the border with US for non-essential traffic until Aug 21. Does this count as “building that wall?”

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt was at Trump rally June 20, says it was too long ago probably for him to have gotten COVID-19 there.

BUT, someone who works with Stitt could have gotten it at rally, then passed it to him, or to a friend or colleague who passed it to him.   See how this exponential stuff works?

 

Who had Alabama and Walmart respecting science more than President of the United States in the 2020 bat-shit crazy pool? Now all you liars put your hands down.

 

July polling: 55% want Biden, 38% want Trump No, wait, that’s July 1988 (!) polling. 55% Dukakis over 38% Bush. Hope for a landslide Work like it will come down to a single vote. 

 

Trump must have been really upset with Brad Parscale to fire him almost 48 hours before Friday night.

New Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien’s Wikipedia page: he “managed both Chris Christie’s gubernatorial campaigns & was Deputy Chief of State before being fired in 2014 after Christie said he “lost confidence in his judgment.”

So Bill got hired w/o him or WH scrubbing Wikipedia? Good start.

Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottom on CNN saying  Trump broke city law by not wearing a mask. #LockHimUp

Washington Post reports Trump’s new U.S. postmaster general ordered the agency to leave mail behind at distribution centers if it delayed letter carriers. Can they start by delaying packages from the Trump Store and Trump Campaign Store?

It couldn’t be more perfect on the day Trump spoke on infrastructure that he hires as his campaign manager former Chris Christie manager Bill Stepien, the man whose claim to infamy is shutting down a bridge. #BridgeGate

In Georgia, where COVID-19 cases are rising, local mask mandates have been ‘suspended’ tonight by Gov. Brian Kemp’s executive order. Don’t forget Amy Klobuchar back in debates – “My friend Stacey Abrams would be governor of Georgia right now if it wasn’t for voting violations.”

Donald Trump isn’t worth a hill of Goya beans. Pass it on.

Rookies.

Ex-football coach Tommy Tuberville won Alabama GOP primary. In 1999 Auburn WRer Clifton Robinson pleaded guilty to misdemeanor after being charged with raping 15-yr-old girl, Tuberville suspended him 1 game: Once again – “Vote Doug Jones so you don’t have to hide your daughters?

WNBA Atlanta Dream owner Sen. Kelly Loeffler, “Sports have the power to unite us, but WNBA has embraced BLM — a radical movement that seeks to destroy American principles.”

The Atlanta Dream roster is 12.

Two players are white.

This will end well.

But hey, GOP Senators who’ve hitched their wagon to Donald Trump’s “star.” Jeff Sessions was 1st to do so in 2016. Never turned on Trump, he simply and rightly recused himself from Russia investigation. Look how well his loyalty has been repaid.

WTAF? I honor the idea that you keep minor children out of politics. And then this  Donald Jr tonight tweeted “In all fairness, Joe Biden is not capable of debating Barron Trump let alone Donald Trump.”

 

Jeff Sessions had basically what amounted to a  lifetime Senate job, endorsed Trump, ended up AG for less than 2 yrs. Thomas More said of Richard Rich, who perjured himself & got More executed, to become AG of Wales. “It profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world, but for Wales?

Phrase that used to be rhetorical “Would it kill you to go to the party?”

Florida governor Ron DeSantis says COVID-19 cases are “starting to stabilize.” Well, the Titanic did stabilize when it hit the ocean floor.

 

Just maybe, if you can’t decide whether or not you are worried about electing a 77 year old man like Joe Biden, maybe you can focus on having a 87 year old SCOTUS judge like Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

If Trump thought doctors and scientists were lying about COVID-19 he wouldn’t get tested every day. He just needs his cult members to believe they’re all lying so he can get reelected. Period.

 

Trump opens Rose Garden press conference by saying “Americans are feeling good.” 136,000 Americans were unavailable for comment.
