There’s No Art In This Non-Deal Of Trump’s Healthcare Bill

Trumps healthcare bill.

It failed miserably.

And he’s supposedly the man who stakes his reputation on The Art of the Deal.

It’s baldly clear Donald Trump couldn’t make a political deal to save his ass.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, he and his relatives are raping the American peoples by signing billion dollar contracts between their companies and Chinese corporations with Chinese military ties.

But do any of those “hillbilly” voters – written about so elegiacally by a Harvard dude – read The Wall Street Journal to keep up on these deals?

No. They’re too busy scoring hydrocodone¬† and oxymorphone manufactured by Big Pharma then getting constipated and getting Rx’s from their docs for more Big Pharma meds so they can poop again so they can keep up their White-American hillbilly addictions.

And some hillbilly Harvard dude will write another book and get more facetime on the tube explaining all that hillbilly pain.

We call it something else: Willful stupidity.

Want to know more? Just ask…

Kansas’ Bill Self Never Met A Criminal He Couldn’t Put On The Court

What an exciting win by that Kansas Jayhawk team over the Michigan State Spartans!

And aren’t we glad we weren’t distracted from all that terrific basketball by being reminded that the Kansas b-ball players are involved in the rape of a 16 year old minor in their dorm room?

Or that spectacular Fab Freshman Josh Jackson – constantly touted by CBS announcers – is currently charged with destroying a female University of Kansas basketball player’s car and threatening to beat her up?

*************

Yes, yes, yes. Don’t distract us with all that.

At least that’s what Kansas Coach Bill Self said about his player’s criminal behavior when asked by the press.

And his star player Josh Jackson – taking a cue from his role model and mentor, Bill Self – said the same thing to reporters when questioned about why he wants to beat up female basketball players: He doesn’t want to talk about something that is a distraction to what’s more important – The Big Game.

We jokingly put it this way.

What isn’t a joke is that it was a FEMALE CBS sideline reporter who was given the job to question Josh Jackson on this matter – AND SHE LET HIM OFF.

DISGUSTING.

In the state of Kansas, Bill Self has carte blanche to run rampant over the rules and the law when it comes to college basketball and the farmers don’t care what he does as long as he wins.

Apparently, no one in the world of college basketball cares either.

 

NCAA Refs: A Criminal Class Act

We saw them in the Northwestern game ignore an arm going up through the basket. And give the game to Gonzaga.

Then we saw them in the Arkansas game review the video and refuse to see what the world saw: A North Carolina hand deflect the ball causing it to go out of bounds with a minute left. Then remarkably refused to call a blatant charge on North Carolina’s next possession.

At that point we knew the fix was in. These NCAA refs are criminally irresponsible.

The NCAA and the referees always have conferences before the games. This much is known.

The favorite teams always get the favored calls.

So far, in every game in the tournament the favored team has been hit with less fouls than the underdog. Figure that one out. What are the possible odds of that happening?

Only when the underdog has undeniably taken advantage will the refs let go of the game – that is, usually.

*********************

Why?

We always thought it was great for underdogs to win. We always thought it was the American Way for the Little Guy to battle it out and prove that guts and determination can overcome the bullies and the braggarts.

Well, welcome to the New America. In the New America they want the Big Teams to stay big and they want the winners to keep winning and they’re willing to cheat the system to keep it that way.

Need any proof?

Just watch the NCAA Tourney.

On…CBS!

Disney-Owned ESPN To Cut Staff: Our Prediction – They’ll Fire The Wrong People

ESPN – wholly owned by mouse-whiskered Disney Corp. – has announced that they are not only losing viewers but also household subscribers. (Subscribers pay the cash part that for years made ESPN a cash cow for Disney.)

With that in mind, ESPN says they will be cutting on-air talent in an effort to cut costs.

Here’s what we say: ESPN will undoubtedly fire the wrong people.

For years ESPN has shown a distinctly tone-deaf ear when it comes to putting talent in front of the camera. Prime example? The goofball adenoidal broadcast host Adnan Virk. Has the voice and personality of a giraffe on coughdrops. Just who does ESPN think they’re appealing to?

Oh. We know. It’s those millions of imaginary hipster doofus sports fans dissembling across the nation that ESPN is trying to enrapt. Those Mountain Dew addicted Taco Bell chomping couch-captured geeks.

Good luck with that mythical demographic base.

Why not do the right thing? How about going for that monumentally untapped audience out there that is craving for Quality Sports Reporting?

You know. Real sports fans. The kind that don’t need gimmicks or gum-smacking pseudo-personalities with built-in baggage injecting their studio assigned supposed slants on the coverage of the day.

Who needs a cueball Seth Greenberg or an aggressively vigorous Dick Vitale shouting “Baby! Baby!” (Vitale’s “Baby!” routine long ago left the crib, grew old and is decaying now in a crypt.)

*********************

It’s time for a re-branding at ESPN. Back to basics. Getting the stories on games. Stop thinking you’re building a brand through personalities.

Just deliver the sports news.

*********************

Do we expect things to improve at ESPN in wake of this recent cost-cutting move? Do we believe execs will hunker down and get back to basics?

Nah.

In fact, the way their heads are screwed on, we figure they’ll pull a Jamie Horowitz.

At an operation like ESPN, when things go bad, they somehow figure out a way to make things worse.
