Scouts are being replaced by analysts and algorithms, which have their limitations. What computer would have recommended Kenley Jansen of the Los Angeles Dodgers to be converted from a catcher to perhaps the greatest closer in the game? Or for Dave Stewart to be moved from catcher to the pitcher’s mound where he became a four-time 20-game winner? Or Trevor Hoffman to switch from shortstop to the brink of the Hall of Fame as a closer.

Oh no, some minor Hawaii official pressed the wrong button causing panic among the Islanders. Remember when BHO used to routinely refer to terror attacks as workplace violence or bad hair days?

Jesus...

They're not supposed to “give up” unless you really want to live in a banana republic...

So what was the first official statement of the POTUS in wake of the serious event in Hawaii?

Though the White House told reporters Trump had been briefed on the situation, the president himself has yet to comment publicly.

Nada. Nope. He bitches about the press and that book.

Millions of people in Hawaii felt the expectation of certain death. What has their president offered in reassurance?

Oh yeah, Hawaii! Where Obama faked his own birth...

This guy doesn’t give a shit about anyone outside his circle.

I know he doesn’t give a shit about me, but you think he gives a shit about you.

LIAR-IN-CHIEF AT HIS FINEST!
Interesting experiment today by our Liar-In-Chief and his Republithug toadies…..
    During the last 24 hours the Orange Goon has been rocked back by the reaction to his ‘shithole’ remark. There were, what—eight other real, live human beings at this meeting with Trump. The lone Democrat there has accurately reported what was said. One Republican (Little Lindsay) refuses to admit what was said, but claims that it was bad enough that he had to express his displeasure directly to Donald Trump. Two other Republicans who were also there suffered some sort of simultaneous temporary hearing failure and thus could not confirm or reject what was said. The remaining four people are apparently deep in hiding and are thus incommunicado on the subject (but they are all Republicans, so as soon as they are adequately briefed up with the latest talking points you can bet that they will be out there lying their asses off for Trump). So, how has the Orange Führer decided to deal with the situation? Well, it looks like he is going to try to pass off what was spoken directly in front of eight different witnesses by saying that it didn’t happen at all!“What are you going to believe, me or your lying ears?” I’m beginning to question wether Trump isn’t attempting to prove that he can completely suspend reality. Make enough people actually believe that up is down and black is white. I’m sure he and his lackeys are currently operating within the ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ parameters. Create enough doubt in enough people that the accusations can at least be reasonably doubted. But Trump appears to be trying to take it even a step further. Can he make enough people actually believe a lie that was spoken directly in front of 8 live witnesses can be 'walked back' to a point where the whole thing will be diffused? I doubt that he can, but he’s still there, still the president.


“My people are so smart,” Trump told the crowd in Sioux Center, Iowa on Saturday. “And you know what else they say about my people? … They say I have the most loyal people.”

He continued: “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like, incredible.”

The next day in Muscatine, Iowa, Trump defended his use of tough rhetoric, but vowed to take a “softer” approach.


The guy knows his audience...

We do not need a wall on the border with Canada, and we do not need a wall on the border with Mexico. We need to have a "Good Neighbor" policy with our good Christian neighbors here in the Western Hemisphere.
 
Salute,

Trump linked to porn star. Film at 11:00.

Aren’t there any porn character actors?

Yep. He took a bad situation and made it better by telling his story... and did it without “embracing his victimhood” right?

I defend racism by voting my party's line?


Your party's policies are inherently racist...

It's a shame that you think that.

That’s not what I think, it’s what I know. I’m sorry but that is the way it is. I wish it were different, but it ain’t.
