Abbott Joke

Fox News’ Chris Wallace made Gov. Greg Abbott look like a dummy yesterday. Here is from an MSN.com story yesterday:

Wallace continued: “Governor, there were thousands of complaints of sexual abuse at migrant shelters during the Trump years. Not to say that what’s going on now is right but we couldn’t find one instance of you complaining and calling that out when President Trump was president.”

Abbott, meanwhile, largely dodged Wallace’s question, claiming there were “multiple differences between what happened in the Trump administration” and the current White House.

Abbott looked like the Abbott we all know too well.

Texas GOP State Sen. Bryan Hughes, the sponsor of SB 7, the racist voter suppression bill, told CNN’s Pamela Brown yesterday, that there are 400 voter fraud cases in Texas.  Show us, dude. That’s new to us. Pamela Brown ate his lunch for sure.

Royko had a hilarious response to my take on Texas losing business because of the racist voter suppression bill:

I guess someone needs to point out that the Dems mislead when they object to proper ID’s, as they have mastered voter fraud.

Who doesn’t need ID, except when it comes to trying to vote multiple times?

The state has already lost a lot from cancelled events, and, even though not a single condition currently exists in Harris County that the pequeña Comandante cited as the basis of the decision by to declare a condition Red, and shut down Harris County, the condition Red order continues today.

Was it politically tone deaf to be posting pictures frolicking on a Galveston beach without a mask while the “sheeple” are ordered to stay home and forced to wear a face diaper everywhere in Harris County?

As far as declining attendance to watch a bunch of spoiled rich players (some exposed as cheaters) worship the Burning, Looting Maoists in stadiums taxpayers are paying for, seems to have started prior to the push to make it harder for Dems to steal the vote.

That’s funny.

It was good to see Japanese professional golfer Hideki Matsuyama win the Masters.  If you know what I mean.

From BleacherReport.com from this past weekend:

The Houston Chronicle fired veteran NFL reporter Aaron Wilson because of comments made on WEEI radio in Boston concerning allegations of sexual assault and misconduct against Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Wilson’s departure was first reported by Diana Moskovitz and Kalyn Kahler of Defector.com. 

Speaking to The Greg Hill Show on March 19, Wilson characterized the allegations against Watson as a “money grab” and compared settling the suits as negotiating with terrorists.

I could not find the firing story on the Chron’s webpage.


Former Astro Joe Musgrove, now with the Padres, tossed a no-no against the Rangers at Globe Life this past Friday evening.

There have been five no-nos tossed against the Colt 45s/Astros since 1962.  We have never had a no-no tossed against us in H-Town.  We were a home team once when a no-no was tossed against us.  That was in 2008, against the Cubbies when we played the two Ike Games at Miller Park in Milwaukee, then known at Chicago North.  Now you know.

Former Astros Skipper A.J. Hinch is now the Skipper of the Tigers. The Tigers are in town for three starting this evening.  He paid a price.  He sat out for a year while the players didn’t and played.  I wonder if he is hearing it from the boo birds.

I still don’t know why the Astros had yesterday, a Sunday, off.
