Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Warning: This is Trump heavy due to what came down this morning. 
  • Breaking: Trump went on Fox and Friends this morning and admitted that Cohen represented him in the Stormy Daniels payoff when he previously has said he had no knowledge of it. "Like with this crazy Stormy Daniels thing, he represented me," he said. What a moron. 
  • He sounds like a madman in that interview
  • Cohen said yesterday that he would take the Fifth Amendment in the lawsuit filed against him by Stormy Daniels. That led to the resurfacing of Trump saying last year, “The mob takes the Fifth. If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?” This is becoming a clown car.
  • Breaking: Trump's VA nominee, Ronny Jackson, has withdrawn after allegations that he drunkenly banged on a female's hotel room door, crashed a government car while drunk, and handed out opiods like candy. He says the allegations are not true. Sure
  • Yesterday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Jackson had been "properly vetted."
  • That girl is going to have a nervous breakdown. She needs to walk away. Now. 
  • I feel dumb for never having heard of the "Golden State Killer." That cold case led to an arrest this week of an ex-cop. It's fascinating
  • The French president said yesterday he would not meet with the Dalai Lama. I would have at least been his caddy. You know, I might "get something for the effort." 
  • The NFL draft today will be on ABC and FOX on prime time. That's in addition to ESPN and the NFL Network. That's crazy.
  • I think Baker Mayfield may be one of the greatest college football quarterbacks of all time. But there is no way I would draft him. 
  • There's a movement to have long time sports personality Norm Hitzges announce the very last pick in the draft.  If Jerry Jones and the NFL doesn't make it happen, something is very wrong. It would be great PR. My bet: It will happen. 
  • I've said for a long time that some Ticket segments are nothing more than paid ads. An online debate broke out about it which I wasn't involved in. 
  • It was brutal in the Supreme Court which heard oral arguments on Trump's travel ban yesterday. Trump said during the campaign that he would ban all Muslims from entering the country. Justice Kagan seized on it and asked this hypothetical:
  • Ford announced yesterday "it will phase out most cars it sells in North America. According to its latest financial release, the auto giant 'will transition to two vehicles' — the Mustang and an unannounced vehicle, the Focus Active, being the only traditional cars it sells in the region." It's all trucks and SUV's now.
  • This guy is going to get crushed today for his reckless spending of taxpayer dollars. #MAGA
  • Allergies might kill all of us.
