Personal fouls?

October 20, 2020

At the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, students have been issued a stay-at-home order, but it will not affect varsity sports, including and especially football. (Michigan, which broke their single day COVID record yesterday, opens their college football season this weekend by traveling to Minnesota, where they broke the case record last Friday.)

The President of “the Washington Football Team, Jason Wright, said there’s a “Pretty good chance” the team has no official name in 2021.

Well, that’s okay. In 2020 Washington got the Redskins name off their football team. And soon they’ll have the Trump name off the White House.

Riddle me this. “What’s the difference between the election and Trump’s healthcare plan?

The election is actually coming in two weeks.

Going to keep saying this….. the media now would “both sides” a Möbius strip.

Dr. Fauci quoting “the Godfather” is one of those rare glorious 2020 moments: In brushing off latest Trump attack Fauci says only cares about addressing the virus “That other stuff, it’s like in ‘The Godfather’: Nothing personal, strictly business as far as I’m concerned.”

Melania Trump says she canceled her first campaign appearance in months with Donald because she has a “lingering cough”, and out of an abundance of caution, she will not be traveling today.” Lingering effects of COVID-19 might last longer than that marriage after Nov. 3.

Trump ad-libbed at his rally that if Joe Biden is elected, he will be too boring for people to even care about government. Who’s with me on dreaming of ‘boring?”

Rachel Maddow sadly points out that 31 state are in the “red zone” for COVID-19. Two states that aren’t…. New York and California. Maybe THAT’s why Trump just attacked them.

Okay, who had “Trump picking fights with 60 Minutes AND Dr. Fauci” two weeks before the election on their 2020 batshit bingo card?

So you think Donald Trump has already called Bill Barr to demand DOJ stop that 60 Minutes interview from airing?

Well, as much time as Trump is now spending talking about Hunter Biden and China, your reminder that Donald is a walking talking illustration of Freud’s theory of projection.

World serious?

October 20, 2020

So as World Series starts Tuesday night, thanks to Fox not showing the playoffs on until game seven of the NLCS, and no Tampa Bay games that I can remember all year, can anyone name a Tampa Bay Ray?

(And no, Evan Longoria doesn’t count. He’s now on the Giants)

Two Michigan State football players were arrested for alleged misdemeanor assault in September, and one also had a misdemeanor “drunk-and-disorderly” charge. Yeah, can’t imagine why any of these young men might engage in risky behavior during a pandemic.

If you were watching Monday Night Football and were unaware, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is one of Donald Trump’s biggest NFL supporters.Who knew karma might be a football fan?Carry on.

As bad as the COVID-19 death tolls might be, remember after 9-11 when we had no idea how many first-responders and others in NY would end up with fatal illnesses years later? Not that Donald would take responsibility for those deaths either.

Apparently stung by reports Joe Biden is raising more $$$ than him, Trump today said “I’d be greatest fundraiser in history- all I’d have to do is call up every Wall Street firm & major company in U.S…. but if I do that I’m totally compromised.”

Besides Vlad would be jealous.

As Trump campaigns in Arizona thinking not only did Cindy McCain endorse Joe Biden, even Barry Goldwater would probably have endorsed Joe Biden.

Now Fox News is gleefully headlining the story about Jeffrey Toobin and his zoom dick call. Stupid indeed not to be more careful on a video call. But I’d rather have a man touching himself at work than doing the same to female coworkers. #RogerAiles

Lost in tales from the swamp: Donald Trump, after Orange County fundraiser flew BACK to Las Vegas rather than staying in California, just so he could bill taxpayers for his entourage staying 2nd night at his Vegas hotel. Grifters gonna grift.

Rachel Maddow with the gold standard of advice on polls, “if you do care strongly about what’s going to happen” with election “Prognosticate less, speculate less, vote and volunteer and donate more. Do the things you can do.” Pass it on. And do what you can.
