A Matter of Hours

Commentary is waiting.

Governor Mike Pence said this morning on the “Today” show that in a “matter of hours” the Donald Trump campaign would produce evidence to refute the latest claims by the women who accused Trump of you know what.

Commentary thinks the Trump campaign put Pence out on a limb.

I am sure you have checked out the First Lady’s killer speech yesterday. I watched it with my Dad yesterday and my Dad was cheering in the process. The First Lady hit it out of the park. A total evisceration of Trump.

Here is how Mike Pence reacted this morning to the First Lady’s speech:

“I have a lot of respect for the first lady and the job she has done for the American people over the last seven and a half years. But I don’t understand the basis of her claim.”

Like I said, they put this fella out on a limb. He would have been better off saying he didn’t watch the speech. What a dumbarse.

Name the player with the most base hits in the 2016 playoffs thus far?

Check out these Texas poll numbers from the Star Telegram today:

Less than a month before Election Day, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump holds a narrow 47-43 percentage point lead over Democratic counterpart Hillary Clinton in the usually reliably red state of Texas, a new WFAA Texas TEGNA poll shows. 

Despite the latest controversy swirling around Trump regarding the 2005 video showing him talking about groping women and accusations by women who say he made unwanted sexual advances toward them, the GOP candidate maintains a narrow lead among both men and women statewide, and a larger lead among white voters in Texas. 

While his lead statewide is 4 points, Trump’s lead in North Texas is double that, at 8 points. Clinton, who leads in Central and South Texas, has more support here than Trump does among African-American and Hispanic voters. 

“The good news for Republicans in Texas is that he still has a lead,” said Jim Riddlesperger, a political science professor at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth. “The bad news is they depend … on a 10 to 12 point Republican win to elect people down ballot. This could have an impact in down ballot legislative races. 

“The question has never been whether Trump is going to win Texas, but by how much.”

If these number are close on November 8, it means a major Dem sweep here in Harris County.  Like a total wipeout of the GOP countywide.

And here is what Trump said about the People Magazine reporter who accused him:

“Take a look. You take a look. Look at her.”

Look at yourself, dude!

While we wait for the Trump evidence, it looks like Gloria Allred will trot out a new Trump accuser. Oh, well.

Josh Donaldson of the Jays leads the playoffs with nine base hit of course.

I just got word that the flagpoles at the late Tal’s Hill were removed this morning.
