The displeasure of the president


This is former White House press secretary and dancer with the stars Sean Spicer.  He is not smiling right now because President Biden told him, Kellyanne Conway and a bunch of other Trump loyalists to vacate their posts on the boards of the military academies.  In fact he and Conway are telling him they're not going and are suing because they really need the paychecks that go with these McJobs.  Easter bunny work is seasonal.

The president is also fed up with federal employees who contribute to the pandemic by refusing to get vaccinated.  His executive order requires they quit whining and get the shot, along with companies that employ more than a hundred people or receive federal contracts.   It sounds like he's serious.

This Saturday, September 11, mixed martial artist Vitor Belfort and 58-year-old Evander Holyfield will meet at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, for what is described as a heavyweight fight.  Biden should appoint Holyfield to some board so he won't have to risk his life this way.  Speaking of over-the-hill palookas in need of a paycheck, ringside commentary will be provided by Donald J. Trump, who has no time for the memorial stuff that suckers like Biden are expected to do for free.  At the weigh-in he boasted that he could knock out Biden "within the first few seconds."  Maybe leave the trash talk to the fighters, Tubby.

"Love the party, love the country, advocate morality and art" is the theme of an entertainment industry symposium in China and not in Texas as you might think.  CCP officials warned celebrities to "consciously oppose the decadent ideas of money worship, hedonism and extreme individualism" and "abandon vulgar and kitsch inferior tastes."  They're also expected to "pass positive energy silently to the audience," whatever that means.  So, no Real Housewives of Kunming, I guess, unless they get together to drink chardonnay and sing "The East Is Red."

Next door North Korea was holding a midnight parade to mark Kim Jong-un's stunning weight loss and the 73rd anniversary of the country's founding.  No ballistic missiles but marchers in stylish orange hazmat suits stole the show.  Where can I get?  The Mu variant is days away.

Workers dismantling the Lee statue in Richmond are searching for an 1887 time capsule supposedly buried in the plinth, so far without success.  It's said to contain a photograph of Lincoln in his coffin even though those were not permitted.    

Take a breath and relax:  Gavin Newsom must be doing well in the California recall farce because Trump is already yelling "FRAUD AT POLLS!"  Maybe Larry Elder shouldn't have said he'd somehow remove Dianne Feinstein (which governors can't actually do) and appoint Stephen Miller.  


It's early for Christmas shopping but Rand Paul shared this picture of him enjoying a gun display.  But what is he doing with the other hand?

Texas women and girls are now legally required to bear their rapists' babies but Greg Abbott says no problem, Texas will just "eliminate rape."  Just as Trump eliminated covid by not testing.  Magic! 

The New York Times had to step off, a little, after publishing a think piece about how people don't like that Joe Biden still grieves for his son Beau.  The New York Times can kiss a hippo.
