Blah, blah,blah..just stop talking Rachel Maddow. Here’s your A. You’re the smartest kid in class. In fact give all the journalists trained at elite universities A’s. And throw in the sea of top tier tv lawyers in the mix. I’m tired of the chatter.
As stupid as Trump is, he keeps outsmarting the A students. He has a doctorate in media manipulation and he keeps spinning his web of destruction. And all the journalists and lawyers act like hallway monitors or compliance officers squawking about how he broke the rules and it just keeps happening.
Trumps only contribution to our nation is calling out how flimsy the rules and norms are. It’s as if politicians, journalists, lawyers and judges from these selective colleges formed a secret society that included plenty of gentlemen’s agreements. And it worked for those in the club, until trump came in and saw their were loopholes they avoided to keep things civil.
The fact that journalists are hung up on AOC using the word “concentration camp” rather than showing daily images of these people being treated worst than animals. Anyone ever see the daily diet of photos and film from Vietnam Nam? Images with emotions matter today than the precise meaning of the words used to describe the situation .
But the rule judges keep wasting our time on what should be. And as they get gold stars, trump prevents people from testifying to congress, and distracts us with false promises in order to keep journalists talking about him rather than showing us daily images of children and families being destroyed every day in concentration camps.
Twitter was all abuzz about the injustice of Jeremy Lin getting a ring while many great players, much better than him will never wear a championship ring. Seriously?
Basketball is a team game. And teams that win or lose are because of the collective make up of that team not just one player. If that was the case, then Jordan would have way more than 6 championships. His amazing shooting nights alone didn’t bring titles.
Jeremy Lin accepted his role during games. And we won’t know what he brought to the team in practice, on the plane, or from the sidelines. All of those moments make the team better. Former teammates like Carmelo got what mattered to him- Cash.
But Jeremy Lin has been willing to keep showing up as a starter or role player. And now, he has a ring with Toronto:his a magical ride with the Knicks; and an Ivy League education that will continue to open doors to financial opportunities long after his NBA career ends.
Now thats Linsanity
Trump is so predictable that a little voice in my head says”roll tape” whenever he speaks. So today, he was asked if he would be “personally insulted” if Xi of China didn’t show up for their meeting.
Trumps response: “No I’m never insulted. I’ve learned not to be insulted.”
Me: How exactly did he learn the art of not being insulted? Self help?
Roll tape of trump ranting about being insulted!
It’s an endless loop.
Do you take the green line?”
” yeah, why?”
“It derailed and will be delayed for 6 hours.”
I quickly looked up the news story. As I saw video of adults being taken down a ladder. My first thought was “no way would I want to be seen on tv taking a cherry picker, ladder, or getting help off of a tilted train car. ….Instead I saw this as my excuse to try a Divy bike.
