She’s was not Amused 

Forget Russia or North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.  Britain may be the first country to attack the US.    The official mouthpiece of the US has landed in the UK,

So far the man who personally has lost ONE BILLION DOLLARS. Is advising the country on Brexit.    His need to attack British politicians is uniting Brits all of the county.

Last year, he broke protocol by keeping the 93 year old Monarch waiting for 15 minutes.   Neither he or his wife bowed to the Queen and  he walked in front of the Queen.  No one walks in front of the Queen.  That action caused a stir on social media in Britain.

At least he didn’t push her Majesty .

The President has once again attacked  London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan . He has called him short and stone cold loser.

Before she was royalty, The President attacked Megan Markle who said she would move to Canada if he was elected President.   His response was “I didn’t know she was nasty” .  In Trumpian Style, he denied ever saying it and it was fake news.   Of course is a tape.   The good news, he wont cross paths with the Duchess or her husband Prince Harry, on this visit .

Newsworthy(Fake):  Donald in planning to talk Trade with the Brits.  Only on the condition that they agree to a Tariff before they meet.

There will be several protests during his three day visit. The largest will take place tomorrow.  Some pro,but most anti Trump.

In the event, he doesn’t see Baby Trump.

Some clever Brits made their own signs below than can be seen on       Air Force One

 

“Bragging Rights”

Donald J Trump has had more protesters than Presidents Clinton,Bush, and Obama.

No fake or Alternate Facts!

Avengers Endgame: Caught up in the Hype


Image result for avengers endgame

Auditorium 1 at the State Theater in Downtown Woodland is very impressive.  Its old school large with a giant screen. We ended up in Woodland because all the afternoon showings of Endgame were sold out in metro Sacramento.

Endgame is breaking records all over the world, earning two with a “B“illon worldwide in its first 11 days.  Its has passed Titanic and has its sights on Avitar,

Avengers Endgame is an entertaining movie.  It is filled with all the cliches and it hits all the right buttons.  Problem is, we’ve seen this all before.  Over and over and over and over and over and over.  The only thing that was new was inclusion (I’ll call this the mid-term movie)  at the end, nearly race and gender came together to defend our planet!  Missing in action were drag queens from RuPaul Drag Race.  Fans know, those queens could have successfully built a device that would annihilate any foreign lifeform.

Trump: Is it in his Kiss?


Image result for donald trump kiss gif

What is it about Donald John Trump?  That makes him so bloody irresistible that people discard every thing they know is true to get his approval?  Some go so far as to go to jail for this man.    A man who’s loyally is limited to his last name.

Well respected individuals who have spent decades building their personal brands only to have their credibility destroyed after working for the 45th President of the United States.

Sean Spicer, who was a well respected communication director for the Republican National Committee for nearly six years before becoming Trumps Press Secretary.  From day one, he was asked to lie about the size of Trumps Inauguration. The American Press was told to ignore what they see and believe the cow chunks he was attempting to sell.

Kelly Ann Conway, was largely responsible for Trumps presidential victory.  The woman is a power house, a political consultant, a strategist, who is largely responsible for the term “Alternative Facts” adopted by many Trumpers.   Ignore, your eyes,ears and focus on the possible alternatives.  Yes, I saw the bus run him over and kill him, however, it is possible, he died before the bus hit him.

One relationship, I will never understand and one that left many of us scratching our collective heads. Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump.   The only thing I can come up with is the two must be Lovers.   For years, Graham blasted Trump.   Graham was the late Senator John McCain of Arizona best friend and is Megan McCain’s Godfather. It must be sex. (Don’t picture it, you may never want to see again)

It there was one loyal friend who walked through the fire it was Jeff Sessions. His first Attorney General and former two term ator from Alabama was uber loyal to the President.  Not loyal enough to do Jail time.  During the confirmation hearings Sessions said he didn’t have contact with the Russians during presidential campaign.  How so nevah, the press said “Oh but you did!” Sessions recused himself from the Russian Investigation.  This set the Trumpster on fire!!! Any possible fix was gone and Session became enemy number one and endured many insults from the Prez.

Mother of three, a daughter of banjo playing preacher man. Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied to the press every single day.  The pearl necklace wearing lady was Sean Spicers replacement as the Press Secretary.    Mr’s Sanders admitted her sins during the Mueller probe.   While she later called it “A slip of the tongue” she lied about Comey and the FBI staffers not having confidence in him,  lied about Trump Jr and Russian adoptions and the list goes on…………

 3 who knew!

While the Trumpster may have a devastating kiss, there were a few who Immune and had their own agenda.  All of these individuals arrived at the White House dirty and they charmed Trump.

Actually there were four.  A Tide wash couldn’t whiten Mike Flynn’s whites.   Obama, and others warned Trump. This man is more than tainted he’s nasty!  The retired US Army Lieutenant General had a poor reputation.  After retirement as a consultant he took money from companies based in Russia. Before becoming the National Security Advisory Flynn told the Russians, the new Trump Administration would remove some the sanctions placed by the Obama Administration.  Even after Flynn’s conviction for lying, Trump remains loyal to him.   (His sentencing is pending)

Paul Manafort was beyond dingetta.  He is rumored to be a member of organized crime (some say for 30 years or more).  Manafort  has taken millions from the Ukraine, above and under the table. He is been under the watch of several governments for years.   Various stories say Trump and Manafort were casual acquaintances and Trump just hired him in early 2016.  It is believed, he wanted in the Trump Administration to benefit his interest in the Ukraine.   In jail, the 70 year old Manafort could be out by 2024.

 Those who Tape

Does anyone really know what Omarosa Manigault Newman’s job was in the White House?  Donald Trump’s favorite African American relationship began when she was a contestant on The Apprentice in 2004 . She took the role literally and probably knows the Trumpster best.  Like DT, she was a Democrat and Republican.   Like DT, she can be charismatic unless your black women.   Like DT, her credibility is routinely questioned.    On Oprah, she accused a cast mate on The Apprentice of calling her a nigger.  No one on the show could verify Omarosa’s account.

January 2018, Omarosa was fired, by John Kelly the White House Chief of Staff.   Reports say she didn’t go willingly.  She fought to see the President and was physically removed by the Secret Service.   She denied being fired, however, she went on Meet the Press and played a tape of her firing.

Turns out that wasn’t the only thing she taped. Shortly after, she appeared on the reality show Big Brother, where she suggested that country is in trouble with Trump at the helm.  Omarosa said, she would never vote for him again.

August 2018, Omarosa’s book about her time in the White House  “Unhinged” reached number one on the New York Times best seller in its second week.   In her book she says the President’s Cognitive functioning is declining.  Omarosa has called Trump a racist. She says there are tapes and that witnesses have confirmed the existence of tapes of Trump repeatedly saying “nigger ” during filming of The Apprentice.   So far, no one had come forward with of these tapes.   There are tapes of Lara Trump attempting to buy her silence.

If there was anyone devoted to Donald Trump it was his Michael Cohen.  Cohen was his personal Attorney from 2006 to 2018.  I don’t believe his children is as loyal as Michael Cohen.  He was once the Vice President of the Trump Corporation. He was willing to go the jail for Trump and then Trump turned on him.  Cohen who?  But Cohen made recordings of his conversations and while Bill Clinton lied about Monica, Cohen has receipts and copies of checks.  While Mueller couldn’t use the recordings, the copies and the checks.  New York Southern District Court could, and the court reportedly has everything and poses a much greater threat to Trump than Mueller’s Russian probe.  Next week, Michael Cohen begins his three year prison term.

William Barr was the Attorney General under George W Bush and he could have lived  his life outside the turbulent waters of the Trump the Administration.  In February, he waded in.  He seems to be.everything to the President, that Jeff Sessions wasn’t and it could cost him.  A few months later he finds himself in troubled waters.  Did he lie to Congress in April, when he said that” he didn’t know whether Special Council Robert Mueller supported his conclusions regarding the Russia Report?”   The New York Times reported Barr received a letter from Mueller indicating he was not satisfied with Barr’s conclusions.  In his letter, Mueller specifically says that Barr’s summary laying out the bottom-line conclusions of the report “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions.   

There are those who believe, he will be a no show and not appear in front of the House, tomorrow.   Should he not appear, he will be in contempt of Congress  That penalty comes with a fine and a maximum one year in jail.   If its is proven he lied to Congress , he could face up to five additional years in prison.

 

William Barr has several pensions, he didn’t need this job. Perhaps the kiss was too powerful! Maybe he wanted back into the game.  But home cheese is scared, rightfully so!  Senator Kamala Harris chewed him up and forced him to say, he hadn’t read the report.  Yikes!    Just think, he could have been at home, watching Maury!

Image result for ralph northam

We all have bad days………

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is having a bad week.  This week, the embattled governor has been asked to resign after pictures of him in blackface and in a Klu Klux Klan surfaced.

The 1984 pictures was on his personal page when he was a student at the Eastern Virginia Medical School.

After apologizing on Friday,

 “I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now,” Northam said. “This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine and in public service.”

He said he wasn’t resigning.

Epiphany Saturday

In a press conference today.  The Governor says THAT AIN’T HIM IN THE PICTURE!

Actual Wording:  “He does not believe its him”

In fact, he is considering using “facial recognition to prove HE is not the one in blackface.  As for the Klan get up, well…….

The New York Times wrote, the Gov is planning to call his medical school classmates to jog their memories (Is it me, are you sure?)

He has an uphill climb, on Twitter there are quite a few who remember himRelated image

With so many gems from his press conference.    Including his win in a Talent show as Michael Jackson. Were he does remember darkening  his skin ,on a black man who’s skin doesn’t need darkening!   BTW, he knows how to “moonwalk”   I am sure the people at Saturday Night Live (not live tonight) hope he doesn’t resign this week. There is simply too much material .      Did you hear the one about the Virginia governor……………

Members of his Party has asked him to resign including Kamala Harris and Joe Biden, Virginia Republicans have joined them.

Two blackface stories in a week

Build the Wall with Porn Fees?


Related image

Miss Gail says yes………

Arizona State Representative Gail Griffin, wants a wall and wants to charge Arizonans twenty bucks to look at porn on the net.

If her proposed House Bill 2444 passes, Arizona would require companies that make or sell electronic devices in the Grand Canyon State to install software that blocks porn.

To remove the block,you just need to prove that your 18 and give them a non-stick twenty.  Payable to the Arizona Commerce Authority.

The money would go into a newly created account called the John McCain Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Fund and the mo-nay would be used to build a big beautiful border wall between Mexico and Arizona.  To keep those super cars unique to Met-he-co and those the duct taped women (that no person working at the border has seen before) and those gang member out of Arizona .

Only in the mind of the Trumpster would terrorist choose to fly into Mexico where there are walls instead of wall-less Canada. .

Other legislators, from states more than a thousand miles from the Mexican border are proposing state taxes to help the President with his vision.

As they say in Venezuela, buena suerte !

Sold my soul for a case of “Bit of Honey”


Image result for face the music game show

My niece said, they’re auditioning at the Hilton, you should go. Even though I hadn’t seen or heard of the show, I said okay.

The medium sized meeting room was filled with perspective contestants and staff, who asked you about yourself and hobbies. When they asked me had I’d seen the show, I figured I was doomed. But no one gave me the heave ho and We saw a video of the show and played a mock version of the show. I was terrible.

When I was younger, my mother and I would occasionally drive down to LA to see the taping of some of the shows like Johnny Carson, Laverne and Shirley and various game shows. The game shows were lucrative, because they gave audience members a fist full of tickets to entice us to sit through the hours of taping. It was common for them to tape ten to fourteen shows a day. We came home with Tee Shirts, Electric Can Opener and cash.it was grueling.

I had long forgotten about Face the Music when they called and told me to come down to LA. Bring changes of clothing and expect to stay 14 hour a day. I had no expectations of winning a car or a ton of cash, I was just excited to be on TV.

My wife and I rented an Oldsmobile Cutlass and drove down to LA, where we stayed in a seedy hotel on Hollywood Boulevard near the Sunset Studios. I convinced her, the long day would be worth it because of the cash and prizes.

FORT KNOX

We arrived to the studio. As I was walking away, my wife remembered I had the rental car keys and the room keys and as she was walking towards me to retrieve the keys, she was blocked by two security guards. Who took the keys from me, and put them in an envelope, sealed the envelope and gave the sealed envelope to my wife, who was less than fifteen feet away.

HOME

In my mind, we would tape then break for lunch. I was assigned to a waiting area with other contestants ,where we were told the rules. We had to sign various releases including one very scary release that said, if the show was preempted in one of the five largest markets, we would forfeit our prizes. So if there was a national emergency, I could kiss my 1980 Ford Pinto goodbye.

We all learned that home during the taping would be this large room in a loft in the studio, where there was a dressing area, two restrooms and a large lighted mirror. The contestants were encouraged to entertain ourselves and watch the taping on a portable TV.

CHOW

There were snacks for us A large steel can held the IRIS soft drinks, coffee was in a large teachers coffee pot. with an orange light. Lunch on the first day was fried chicken, poured into another large steel can lined with a black garbage bag and chips. Napkins were our plates. No one complained.

FACE THE MUSIC

Face the Music was produced Sandy Frank, who was responsible for the very successful “Name that Tune”. The twist, however, was that in addition to identifying the songs that the orchestra played, the contestants had to link the song titles to famous people, places, and things. (Remember. I sucked here) The Host was Ron Ely, who was best known for his loin cloth in TV’s Tarzan. Way, way, wayyyy back in 1966. The Singer was Lisa Donovan who’s trademark move was twisting her shoulders at the beginning of every show. Her twisting slowly took over the room. By the end of the first evening all of us were twisting with Lisa

OLD MATH AND HARSH REALITY

They called us for the show. People traveled from Washington State to be on the show. There were nearly eighty of us. Two new contestants for each show meant, only 28 would get on if they taped fourteen shows. If!

My reality changed after realizing that I wasn’t guaranteed to get on. After I told everyone I was going to be on. “Fuck”

I was one of six black contestants. One brotha, names Eugene, killed it and became the champion. While we should be happy for him, all we felt was dread. You never seen blacks on one game show in those days. Eugene went on to win three other shows. They taped 11 shows that day.

My new wife, was disappointed that I didn’t get on. To make matters worse, the audience prizes were mostly tee shirts.

SELLING OUR SOULS FOR BIT OF HONEY

Several times a day the producers would visit the loft. The staff, asked us to chant their names as they walked up the stairs, the chants would grow louder as the producers got closer to the room, when the the door open there as absolute pandemonium, we were jumping up and down.

These were all self respecting people who would never act this way. ANYWHERE! But we wanted to get on, so we tossed aside our self respect and screamed they way the told us too.

By the second and final day, I was depressed. I kept it to myself. Even with the announcement they were going to tape 14 shows, did nothing to relieve my sadness. I told everyone I was going to be on TV, and now it looks likes its not going to happen.

Eugene, who came out of top for four episodes, lost in the the pivotal fifth episode which would have guaranteed him a new car. I felt bad for wanting him to lose.

In the room, you could feel the disappointment. I even sang a sad song that make a couple of people cry.

At one point, they asked us to come downstairs. Showtime, was shooting a documentary (I think) featuring game show contestants. We all signed releases without looking. When the cameras were on me, I told them how excited I was to be on and how well we were treated (All lies)

We returned to more chicken. I sat staring at set. There was no more Lisa Donovan Twist. Just as I started to settle into my reality, I wasn’t going to be on. They called my name.

The other contestants made me feel important even though I would never see them again. The brotha worked on my Natural, others made sure every thing was perfect. No one had to coach me about my energy. I was ready.

When Ron Ely asked what I did? In song, I said I was an opera singer. My colleagues at the insurance company where I worked as clerk, teased me about that for months.

(An Opera, what?)

I didn’t make it past the first round, BUT, I was a hit, with pats on the back from staffers and the female producer. I got carried away by the laughs in the audience. Ron Ely, told me to settle down. But who was he? I was a hit!

My consolation prize was a selection of Bulova Clocks and a Case of Bit of Honey.

The car was especially quiet leaving the studio. Then all of sudden “Wedding Ring” WEDDING RING!! WEDDING RING!!! my wife is screaming! Was the answer, to the question. I made the mistake and said, I know! HOW COULD YOU NOT KNOW WEDDING RING!!! We have only been married a few months. WED-DING RING!

An unscheduled stop at Del-Taco, reduced the temperature of the car.

GAME SHOWS

I have auditioned for several games shows. From the Zoo like atmosphere of the Price is Right, to Card Sharks, I was called by three of the four shows I auditioned for. But the more I thought about the degradation and making a complete fool of myself, and decided against it.

If can’t say if this is the experience at all game shows, but I was one and done.

My prize arrived six months later, I was Bit O Honey for world

Every now and then I will get a call from someone who has seen me on Face The Music, on Game Show Network and other Cable channels and I walk away, we no regrets. While all my children know that I’m crazy, I wish I could get a copy of the episode so they might share it with their children

See you on Cable
