New News Coverage

We have come along way since November 8, 2016.  One of the dumber days in our country’s history.  Today is the last full day that Donald Trump is at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  It is going to take a very long time to repair the damage.

We are definitely going to breathe easier now that news coverage will shift. The news coverage Trump will get will be reduced dramatically.  Commentary prefers that he gets zero coverage in the future by the respectable news organizations. Why would these news outlets want to give a bullhorn to a private citizen who will spew lies?

White House reporters will no longer get insulted.  White House spokespersons won’t tell bald faced lies.  White House female correspondents of color will be treated respectfully.  The press will not be called the enemy of the people by our federal government.  Civility will return to the White House Briefing Room. So, refreshing.

Trump is a loser.  Trump is a sore loser.  He won’t acknowledge that President-Elect Joe Biden beat him fair and square.  He won’t concede to Biden.  He didn’t invite Biden to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  He won’t attend the inauguration.  He incited the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol 13 days ago.  The guy is a scumbag and that is putting it kindly.

Right now.  At this very moment. The biggest public health challenge on the planet is getting billions of people vaccinated. Gov. Greg Abbott will be in H-Town today to hold a roundtable on getting vaccinated.  Harris County and City of H-Town public health leaders have not been invited to participate.  Gov. Abbott is being petty or is ignorant.  I tend to go with petty.  What a sorry person.

Abbott is not too happy that the feds are doing background checks on National Guard folks who are part of the security force during the inauguration, just in case there are some bad apples that want to disrupt the proceedings tomorrow. Abbott tweeted this:

This is the most offensive thing I’ve ever heard. No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard. @TexasGuard I authorized more than 1,000 to go to DC.  I’ll never do it again if they are disrespected like this.

Phony indignation if you ask Commentary. I responded to Abbott’s tweet by retweeting that security is being handled by the folks under the Trump administration.  You know, the Trump overreach thing.

The best thing about the day after MLK, Jr. Day is that I don’t have to read tweets about MLK, Jr. from folks, err hypocrites, who are full throttle voter suppressors or who supported disenfranchising African American voters on November 3, if you know what I mean.

Nothing to report from The Yard this morning.

One more day.
