The Giants win a game. The Giants win a game!

July 26, 2020

It’s late July, and SF Giants are only 1 game out of first.

 

It’s not just that Trump went golfing with Brett Favre while US death toll again topped 1,000 in a single day, and while hurricanes are bearing down on both Hawaii and Texas. It’s that Donald thought he should be PROUD of their golf outing and had the White House post a picture of it.

As a Saints fan have taken a fair amount of grief for New Orleans defense allegedly trying to knock Brett Favre out of the 2009 NFC Championship game. After today’s golf picture – you’re welcome.

 

A d*ck pick would have been less offensive. #BrettFavre
Seriously can anyone imagine what GOP would say if Obama went golfing during a pandemic with a hurricane baring down on one of the hardest hit parts of Texas? Not that Obama WOULD go golfing during a pandemic with a hurricane bearing down on one of the hardest hit parts of Texas.

 

Florida has now surpassed New York in total coronavirus cases. I missed the Governor Ron DeSantis tweet taking credit.

Oops. Per Washington Post.  “Trump asked DeSantis in May if he would require masks for convention & if virus would be problem, according to person w/ knowledge of conversation. DeSantis said he would not require masks & virus would not be major problem in August in Florida.”

 

So with Reagan Foundation demanding Trump stop sullying Ronald Reagan’s name by associating himself with the former President, how long until the Nixon Foundation follows suit?

 

The editor of the last major independent news site in Hungary was fired today. Still don’t think you can get excited to vote for Joe Biden? Vote like our democracy depends on it. Because it does.

Back in early April we thought it was awful when US reached 30,000 COVID-19 cases in a single day. Now we blow past that number before we wake up on the West Coast.
