Michelle at 53

Happy Birthday to the First Lady!   You are the best for sure!  Nothing but class!

Commentary is not going to say Donald Trump is an illegitimate president even though the Russians helped him across the finish line. So did the FBI. Very illegitimate help if you ask me, but don’t ask me, please.

The President received a Cubbie jersey yesterday with the number 44. This is an easy one. Who wears the number 44 for the Cubbies? Hint: he handed the President the jersey yesterday.

You know Trump is irked knowing that he will become the least popular fella ever sworn into office. He also doesn’t like the number of members of congress who are boycotting the inaugural. Here is this from CNN:

Donald Trump will become president Friday with an approval rating of just 40%, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll, the lowest of any recent president and 44 points below that of President Barack Obama, the 44th president.

Following a tumultuous transition period, approval ratings for Trump’s handling of the transition are more than 20 points below those for any of his three most recent predecessors. Obama took the oath in 2009 with an 84% approval rating, 67% approved of Clinton’s transition as of late December 1992 and 61% approved of George W. Bush’s transition just before he took office in January 2001.

Trump’s wobbly handling of the presidential transition has left most Americans with growing doubts that the President-elect will be able to handle the job. About 53% say Trump’s statements and actions since Election Day have made them less confident in his ability to handle the presidency, and the public is split evenly on whether Trump will be a good or poor president (48% on each side).

And this from McClatchy.com:

President-elect Donald Trump accused approval rating polls of underestimating his support as he nears inauguration, tweeting early Tuesday morning that they were “rigged” against him.

“The same people who did the phony election polls, and were so wrong, are now doing approval rating polls,” he wrote. “They are rigged just like before.”

A new CNN/ORC poll released earlier Tuesday showed Trump with an approval rating of 40 percent for how he has handled his transition, lower than those of Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton before they took office.

Slightly more than half of those polled said they were “less confident” in Trump’s ability to hold office, according to the poll, and repondents were split evenly on whether or not the president-elect would be a good chief executive.

What a joke that we are in for this Friday.

Green no, Green go. Cong. Al Green is boycotting. Cong. Gene Green is going.

Commentary will be watching just to see how much Trump lies in his address, because we all know he is going to lie.

I just noticed this yesterday. I think I am the only person of color living on my block.

From Sunday’s Chron:

Mike Sullivan, former Harris County tax assessor collector, has been appointed director of governmental affairs at Group 1 Automotive.

From the Chron today:

The price of tickets of Super Bowl LI plunged more than 25 percent Monday after the elimination of the Dallas Cowboys from the NFC championship.

Average ticket price fell from $5,877 on Jan. 14 to $4,603 on Jan. 16, according to data kept by ticket retailer SeatGeek.

“The cheapest ticket is $1,000 cheaper today than it was Friday,” said Chris Leyden, content analysis for SeatGeek. 

The possibility that the Cowboys might play, he said, was keeping price high, because sellers knew it would create “incredible demand” among North Texas fans who live a short four hours north of NRG Stadium. 

The Texans got rid of their offensive coordinator yesterday because they can’t get rid of their quarterback. Got it?

First baseman Anthony Rizzo of course handed the 44 to The President yesterday also wears the 44 for the Cubbies.

I got nothing from The Yard today.
