On Thursday, President Trump held a rally in Michigan. Of course, the Legion of The Brainwashed were given the option not to wear masks or socially distance, since His Royal Vain-Ness won't wear one in public unless it's absolutely necessary.
Predictably, America's Oldest Baby tried to lie his way out of some damning audio evidence presented by journalist-author Bob Woodward, in which Trump, seven months ago, admitted that he knew all along how dangerous the coronavirus is. However, in order to perpetuate his con to the Legion, he went all infant:
"WAAAAAHHH! He's a wackjob! WAAAHHH!!"
President Pot, say hello to Mr. Kettle.
At the same event, a freelance reporter for the New York Times was ejected for commenting on social media about how the Legion wasn't, for the majority, anyway, obeying social distancing guidelines.
"WAAAAAHHHH! She's ratting us out! WAAAAHHH!"
I think at this moment in Washington, Melania is probably contemplating ordering a case of Evenflo, if you know what I mean......!
Once upon a time, they were a team. Now, they try to out-stupid each other five days a week, and both are getting roiled by fellow media types for saying stupid things the last two days.
America's Idiot Savant, Stephen A. Smith (First Take), threw down the race card earlier this week when he claimed the Brooklyn Nets' hire of former player Steve Nash as their new head coach was the product of "white privelege".
I call BS on Smith, as usual. It is known that Nets stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, the latter of whom didn't see the court this season due to injury, gave management the thumbs up to hire Nash, who has no coaching experience. As we reported previously, it's not the first time the Nets have given an ex-player his first coaching job, referencing Jason Kidd's tenure with the team as head coach a few years ago. As of yesterday, Smith is standing his ground like the bloviating moron he is. What Nets management is doing is trying to sell extra tickets based on name recognition, as they did with Kidd. That's not a race thing. It's a business thing. Period. End of story.
Meanwhile, out west, Smith's ex-partner, Skip Bayless, long time sports writer for the Dallas Morning News, stuffed both feet in his mouth in making some remarks regarding Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, who admitted earlier this week that he had a bout of depression early on during the pandemic, compounded by the suicide of one of his brothers, during Thursday's episode of Skip & Shannon: Undisputed on FS1.
That Prescott spoke up and acknowledged his issues won him praise from his teammates and rivals around the NFL. While Bayless, to his credit, spoke in serious tones, it seems as though he didn't completely grasp the gravity of Prescott's situation. However, there were quite a few people on message boards during the Chiefs-Texans game that were calling for Bayless to be cut loose by FS1, accused of being insensitive.
My initial take was that FS1 was sinking to the bottom of the commentary barrel, with Bayless being a poor man's Tucker Carlson, and getting reamed out by broadcast partner Shannon Sharpe, which is what led to the flood of commentators calling for Bayless' head on a platter.
Smith & Bayless say stupid, controversial things on air to get people talking. Unfortunately, the masses are after them with pitchforks and torches for being insensitive dimwits. Which would make them perfect candidates for President Trump if he needs to make changes to his cabinet, should he be re-elected. And that's a scary thought.
