Lies, damn lies and Trumpisms.

September 28, 2017

Former University of Florida and current Ohio State coach  Urban Meyer “If you intentionally lie about committing violations, your career is over.” And he said it with a straight face

If Green Bay fans want to give up season tickets over @Packers making statements about racism, sure plenty of younger enlightened fans will take them.

Took decades, but mean bitch Karma finally found a hole in that Teflon coat Rick Pitino’s been wearing.

 

If all NBA players must stand for anthem as mark of respect, can league play national anthems of foreign players as mark of respect?

As woman who has been feeling increasingly uncomfortable w/ football over CTE now feel like I must watch to defend civil rights.

Who knew #TonyRomo might have Hall of Fame credentials. As a broadcaster?

As much as I rag on airlines, United for example has had relief shipments to Puerto Rico since last weekend. Maybe Trump White House should, gasp, hire some airline people to improve efficiency.

Many of younger generation may be asking tonight “What was Playboy?” And others are asking “What was a magazine?” #HughHefner.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, asked about Trump’s NFL criticism “”I don’t think there’s much to clarify, it’s pretty black & white.”

Trump threatened Joe Donnelly that if the Indiana Senator. doesn’t support his tax plan,  Trump will campaign against him. Yeah, that really hurt Roy Moore

 

 

Just guessing that all those in GOP decrying rise of folks like Roy Moore never read Mary Shelley in high school. #Frankenstein

Ikea is buying Taskrabbit.  Oddly enough, if their furniture came pre-assembled, Taskrabbit might never have existed.

White House is investigating Jared & Ivanka’s use of private emails. When done they will probably next investigate Trump’s tax returns.

Students who kneel during anthem can be banned from football. With Betsy Devos they’ll have better chance to play if accused of sexual assault.

Alabama GOP official Gary Head to Toronto reporter Daniel Dale “I believe in Jesus Christ myself and I don’t have any problems with anybody’s religion as long as it’s Christian.I don’t go along with the Muslim religion.”
Jesus wept. Literally.

Trump’s fixation on Puerto Rico being an island you can’t drive trucks to is in keeping with his delusion that a wall will stop immigration.

Steve Scalise, upon his return to the Capitol, praised the officers who saved his life, David Baily and Crystal Griner, saying they are “like family.”
So now would be a good time for Scalise to acknowledge that he was wrong; that Crystal’s marriage is a good thing and her wife is REAL family.

Jared Kushner didn’t tell Senate intel committee he had personal email account. To be fair he was probably agonizing which bathroom to use.

 

#NationalPoetryDay “The best lack all conviction, while the worst. Are full of passionate intensity.” WB Yeats.

On a rare serious note, managed to see the Kent State portion of Ken Burns’ Vietnam, which was sad and compelling.
Remember as a kid, thinking, those people are my babysitters’ ages…and remember being appalled. Still remember all four names. But what we forget, as Burns said in an interview -that ” a majority — a vast majority — of Americans approved of the guardsmen. That there was incredibly cruel hate mail and vilification of the people who died.”
Change takes time.

Barely winning?

So all teams in AL over .500 should make MLB playoffs Who do they think they are -the NBA Eastern Conference?

Stanford used four quarterbacks in the first quarter against UCLA. They might only need 1 the rest of the season. #Costello

Open note to Heisman committee: Yeah, that mostly happened after you went to bed. (Bryce Love,  30 carries for 263 yards and a touchdown, Bringing his season total total to 73 carries, 787 yards and five 5 TDs.)

 

You know you’ve been a Saints fan for too long when aren’t able to watch game, but see they lead 17-6 at half & are then shocked to see they not only didn’t blow the lead but won going away.

 

Trump seems happy the Pittsburgh Penguins are coming to the White House. Has someone told him how many of them are immigrants?

 

Well, so maybe Raiders fans shouldn’t make nonrefundable reservations for Minneapolis the first weekend in February quite yet.

 

 

“My first homicide the guy was shot like 40 times.”

So Monday morning will Trump take credit for the best NFL ratings of the season?
While @realDonaldTrump trashed NFL players the leader of the Free World hung on to win re-election #Merkel

Ted Cruz is a “no” on Graham-Cassidy?   Kobe, Pete Carroll, Ray Lewis, Robert Kraft and others are condemning the President’s response on kneeling.  Damn.  Trump has be agreeing with too many people I don’t like.

Many Americans who’ve been turning away from football over concussions & CTE, may start tuning back in over civil rights.

So is it too soon to start a pool on which NASCAR driver will be the first to say he’s disappointed in Trump comments?

 

Think Trump would pay more attention to Puerto Rico if some athletes went down there to #TakeTheKnee?

Trump so fixated on doubling down on anthem thing you’d almost think he was trying to distract us from something. #Jared #Russia #Healthcare

 

New definition of chutzpah – using private emails for govt business after your father-in-law won the White House largely because his opponent did same thing. #jared

So if the leaders of North Korea and Venezuela are so awful shouldn’t we do all we can for anyone trying to get out of those countries?

Finally,  IMHO.  The US Flag stands for the right to protest it. #TakeTheKnee
