Excuses, excuses…

September 15, 2020

After having games canceled for a false positive COVID-19 test, Giants have now had games with Mariners delayed and moved from Seattle to SF due to unhealthy air. What’s next, 2020? A game delayed due to a plague of locusts?

As if Canada weren’t feeling smug enough with having their COVID-19 deaths basically down to zero under Justin Trudeau, they’d be forgiven for doing just a little gloating over Kawhi’s Leonard’s decision to see another ring with the Clippers. “Not as easy as it looks, eh?”

MLB decided with a 50 game abbreviated schedule to allow 16 out of 30 teams into the post season. And 7 AL teams basically still managed to get themselves eliminated with 2 weeks to go.

Wait, Red Lobster is advertising a (Mountain) Dewgarita? As if 2020 hasn’t been trying to kill us all enough already.

So since HHS spokesman Michael Caputo says he is asking for medical leave what other news of his nefarious activities is about to drop?

Wolf Blitzer asks Jared Kushner why Donald’s administration keeps ignoring his own social distancing guidelines…. and why Trump doesn’t set a good example. And Jared basically says people are responsible for their own health. Well, unless they are women.

FoxNews website headline “Warning to America: Refugees from socialist countries have this warning about Biden, his allies.” Picture is of AOC, Kamala, Joe & Bernie Sanders. We can argue how liberal Harris is, but wonder why Fox didn’t show her & Biden flanked by Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar & Cory Booker?

I know there have been elections where it might be possible to believe there isn’t that much difference between the candidates: 2020 is NOT one of those elections. Period.

Trump in his Town Hall says in the midst of a brag on what he thinks he’s done about COVID-19. – “I believe, George, that none of this would have happened during another administration.” When he’s right, he’s right.

Trump also in Town Hall “I’ve restored “law and order” except in Democrat-run cities? And that’s Biden…”

Biden is in charge of all Democrat run cities? I thought he was a former VP and current candidate for President. This is SO confusing.

Donald said virus will go away due to “herd mentality.” Well, some number of Trump supporters will go away permanently due to “herd mentality.”

Trump – “We’re going to be doing a healthcare plan.” You mean that healthcare plan you promised in late July would be ready in two weeks?

Thinking good thoughts for those on the Gulf Coast, but as they’re about to be hit hard by Hurricane Sally, including potentially catastrophic flooding, wonder why Trump has never once suggested states in the path of hurricanes better manage their beaches, or not allow building near the water?

Off the court.

f you’re not already inspired to work every possible hour to GOTV for Joe Biden, paraphrase of Gregg Popovich today, “If you think of how much this country has changed in the last four years….imagine what it will be like if Trump gets four more.”

No fans at Broncos home opener, a loss to the Tennessee Titans but they plan to allow a limited number of fans for the next game. Wonder if Denver had decided to play without fans the entire year if they would have come up with some automatic snow ball making and throwing machine to take their place.

Tolerance. What a concept. NY Giants co-owner John Mara “my preference is that everybody stand. But..I support your right to (take a knee) because I believe in 1st Amendment & the right of people, espec. players, to take a knee in silent protest if that’s what they want to do.”

I approve this sentence: Eight men in Indonesia who refused to wear face masks in public have been ordered to dig graves for COVID-19 victims as a punishment.

Putting this out there again -“Nearly 60 percent of California forests are under federal management, and another one-third under private control.” So will Trump blame Obama for not leaving FEMA enough rakes?

So if dry trees explode, what happens to trees that are cut down and get really dry and brought indoors and maybe covered in potentially flammable objects including electric lights? Is Trump warning us that HE will kill Christmas?

Scott Atlas, MD was a neuroradiologist, not an infectious disease specialist. And he hasn’t been at Stanford Med School in over 8 years. So if specific medical knowledge doesn’t matter next time Trump has a potential mini-stroke he can just call Dr. Atlas?

Trump told Las Vegas Review-Journal he didn’t think he was subject to Nevada’s Governor’s order about gatherings of no more than 50 people, though SCOTUS ruled in July even CHURCHES must abide by that order. So Donald thinks he’s above God. Very on brand.

Trump in interview today about COVID-19 danger at his rallies. “I’m on a stage and it’s very far away. And so I’m not at all concerned.” Translation, my cult members are on their own.

Guess it hasn’t occurred to any MAGAs that if Trump WERE elected for a second term and is able to dismantle Obamacare, that COVID-19 WILL be considered a pre-existing condition.

Now Hurricane Sally may be heading towards the panhandle, the reddest part of Florida. Wonder if Trump will try to stop the storm with a Sharpie?

Trump to Bob Woodward “But nothing more could have been done. Nothing more could have been done. I acted early. I acted early.” Meanwhile, in Justin Trudeau’s Canada, where something else WAS done, zero Covid deaths yesterday & people are living approximation of normal life.
