President Donald Trump announced Friday that he would donate his salary for this financial quarter to the National Park Service for the restoration of America’s national monuments. The president announced the news on Twitter, together with an image of the $100,000 check. “I promised YOU I would not take a dime of salary as your President. I donate the entire $400,000!” Trump wrote. “It is my honor to give $100,000 to the National Park Service to help repair and restore our GREAT National Monuments,” Trump wrote. “So important to our American History! Thank You!!” Trump is required to be paid the annual $400,000 a year to be the president, but he has pledged to donate his quarterly salary while in office to worthy government causes. In May and in March of 2020, Trump donated his $100,000 quarterly salary to the Department of Health and Human Services to help fight the coronavirus and develop therapies. Throughout the Summer, national monuments were vandalized by leftist rioters until President Trump vowed to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. In July, the president delivered a passionate speech at Mount Rushmore to remind Americans of the importance of protecting monuments. “We will never let them rip America’s heroes from our monuments, or from our hearts,” he said.
Agreed.. Major kudos to President Trump for literally putting his money where his mouth is. No other President has donated their entire salary like this, and there is no universe in which Joe Biden or Kamala Harris would donate one penny of theirs…and we ALL know it. Of course you won’t find this story anywhere on CNN, MSNBC, or any other organ of the dominantly liberal mainstream media, as it would undermine their narrative of Trump.
As the NBA and MLB return from their coronavirus-imposed hiatus, it appears TV viewers are not interested in what the increasingly woke leagues have to offer. With both baseball and basketball draped in all sorts of Black Lives Matter and social justice symbolism for their opening games, a substantially smaller number of fans tuned-in to the rest of the week’s games. According to Outkick.com, neither league did well. As for the opening games, Outkick reported that the return of the NBA on TNT saw the following numbers: Lakers-Clippers: 3.4 million Pelicans-Jazz: 2.1 million ESPN’s MLB return numbers were also underwhelming: Yankees-Nationals: 4.0 million Dodgers-Giants: 2.8 million Outkick’s Ryan Glasspiegel added more ratings numbers on Twitter. “To be fair since I compared MLB vs NBA return night 1, here is night 2,” (July 24) he wrote, adding: MLB (last Friday, ESPN) Mets-Braves (4p) – 922K Brewers-Cubs(7p) – 1.0M Angels-As (10p) – 797K NBA (last night ESPN) (July 31) Celtics-Bucks (6:30p) – 1.3M Mavs-Rockets (9p)- 1.7M The Athletic’s Ethan Strauss also noted that the numbers continued to fall off for MLB: For good measure, Strauss also pointed out that baseball can’t blame the coronavirus. The virus didn’t stop people from watching Tom Brady golf with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson back in May. Indeed, the charity golf match earned record TV ratings in May. Dubbed “The Match II,” the game featuring Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson, Peyton Manning, and Tiger Woods peaked at an amazing 6.3 million viewers and raised more than $20 million for charity.
This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Remember when the NFL started all this crap with Colin K. and his kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem? The ratings for NFL games and “NFL Ticket” dropped like crazy as a result. We documented that, and how many stadiums looked empty after the NFL allowed that crap to continue. Now, in the Wuhan virus era when we can’t even physically go to games (and therefore that revenue for professional sports is not there), the NFL and MLB are seeing a similar effect…but it’s even worse because they’re playing in empty stadiums. So, we see these whiny, self-serving, self-righteous, spoiled-brat, entitlement-minded, millionaire athletes doing this kneeling crap and wearing social justice clothing…and Americans are over it. They’ve had it. So, they’re just changing the channel. What these obnoxious athletes and their coaches aren’t getting…..is that we just want to watch our sports without politics being rubbed in our faces. If they want to protest, or speak their minds about BLM, or how oppressed they feel living in America and all…then they need to do that on THEIR time; NOT ours. Sports used to be that one time where we could all go (regardless of political party affiliation or beliefs) and take a break from politics and just have a beer, a hotdog, and watch a ballgame and have a good time. Not anymore. These professional sports organizations, pandering to the liberal mobs out there, feel they have to rub their politically correct social justice politics in our faces whether we want to hear it or not. And THAT is why more and more Americans are saying to heck with that, and changing the channel.
Former Bill Clinton spokesman and sputtering wackadoodle Joe Lockhart, frantically suggests that under no circumstances should Joe Biden debate Donald Trump. You’re thinking that must be a gag. No. According to Lockhart, Trump tells so many lies it’s pointless for Biden to “enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth.” But we know what he’s really saying, right? The moment Biden faces off with Trump, and the cognition starts malfunctioning, he’s dust. Which is really why, Lockhart admits, “Biden can lose the election.” He’s just creating a phony reason, hoping no one notices. We did. He’s helping the campaign create a fake moral loophole for Biden to worm his way out of so he won’t tank in public. “Oh, we certainly can’t debate Trump. He fibs. And wears hair plugs.” Oh, wait…that’s Joe. But, if that’s the standard for all candidates, we’d never have another debate ever. The Democratic Party would be as thin as I am. (And only half as handsome.) But also — wouldn’t you want to debate a liar? Because you could come armed with facts and kick the liar’s butt. And clearly, if Joe can’t handle a debate, how can he handle being president? Wouldn’t this feeble act disquailfy him from the office? It makes you wonder if he really is the actual candidate at all. You can see Lockhart didn’t think this through. Which is why he writes for CNN. And it says something that a media company, one that should champion transparency and so on, would push to suppress a public forum to evaluate the candidates in real-time. It must be cool to have friends in high places — or at CNN, low places, too.
As usual, Greg Gutfeld nails it here. The Dems desperately don’t want crazy ol’ Joe to debate Trump because they know he’ll get demolished. And, Trump won’t be nice or gentlemanly, or give deference to Joe’s mental decline. Trump will go in there with a baseball bat and beat Joe down….and it’ll be brutal..and we all know it. THAT is why the Dems don’t want Joe to debate Trump. Thanks Greg! That was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue on “The Five” on August 3, 2020. 🙂
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has a “bizarre” habit of bragging about arrests that never happened, Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday. “He’s dreamed of it and thought of it a great deal,” Hemingway, senior editor of The Federalist, told host Tucker Carlson. “And he’s had a lifetime of storytelling. I mean, I don’t think he’s the only politician out there to exaggerate or tell stories but he really is notable for this, and it was something that caused problems for him the first time he ran for president [in 1988] when that candidacy was derailed by his lies, his plagiarism.” In March, Biden was forced to walk back his claim that he was arrested in apartheid-era South Africa three decades ago when trying to visit Nelson Mandela. The claim was just the latest in the former vice president’s string of falsehoods, Hemingway said. “He adopted a fake persona of a British politician [Neil Kinnock]. He had lied extensively about his academic record,” she said. “He has lied about the circumstances of his family’s fatal  car wreck that his [first wife, sons and daughter were] in. He lied about whether the person who was involved in that was responsible or whether he was drunk. “He really has a long track record of lying for personal benefit,” Hemingway argued, “and if we had a media that was even remotely careful, they would be talking about this and they would’ve probably presented these issues to Democratic voters before they chose him in their primary.” In 2008, Biden claimed he was arrested while an undergraduate student at the University of Delaware when he accidentally wandered into a women’s dormitory during a trip to Ohio University. In 2012. Biden clarified his statement, saying that while he wasn’t quite arrested, he “almost” was. “It is interesting and bizarre,” Hemingway said. “One other thing that’s interesting is … he was a really good storyteller,” she added. “They weren’t true stories but they were interesting to listen to. Now, when you see him struggling to even respond to these previous falsehoods, he’s really having trouble doing it and it’s a very interesting to compare, even from 2008 to the current year, what a difference it is and how he is able to tell stories.”
Joe is struggling because he’s too old, and frankly senile, to remember what lies he told who. So, that’s a big part of it. Joe’s history of “storytelling” and lies is extensive, and well documented. That coupled with his history of being spectacularly wrong about virtually every foreign policy issue in the last 40 years, and that oughtta be enough to disqualify him. But, now with his painfully obvious mental decline… I mean c’mon… Let’s all be honest. If anyone of us paraded our grandparents with similar mental decline out there in front of the tv cameras, and told them they had to debate on national tv, we’d be accused of elderly abuse. How is it that the media isn’t addressing that? Simple. They’re supporting Joe no matter what. Getting rid of Trump is of biblical importance to the dishonest liberal mainstream media.
