An Upside down Backward Van and Gender Reveal Infernos: What I Learned Today – Tuesday, September 8

I’m a bit stretched for time today so this is going to be a little shorter than usual.

No, I will not be buying or reading Michael Cohen’s book (I don’t feel sympathy for these assholes who have carried Trump’s water and helped him crime only to see the light after Trump shivs them on 5th Avenue and leaves their corpse to rot out in the open) but I am quite chuffed that this will capture a few news cycles where Trump will spend hours rage tweeting:

How are things going with Brexit?  Not so great:

I was wondering how Disney has been doing with their reopening. Opening a mega resort and theme park in the middle of a state hit hard during a pandemic seemed like a bad idea. But we haven’t heard many stories linked to Disney. And now we may know why.  It looks like there is a huge coverup being done by Disney.  This story from The Daily Beast is quite the read.

Meanwhile Florida and Texas are considering opening up their bars and nightclubs again. Seriously, if they were the mayor from Jaws, this would be like him watching the shark attack first hand, covering his mouth and saying, “My god! This is spectacular.  Can we import more great whites? With lasers?”

So if you stage a gender reveal party that starts a wildfire that burns down 7,000 acres in California. A boy I’m guessing?

Also, this isn’t the first time this has happened:

It appears that Postmaster Louis DeJoy may have done some criming before he became postmaster:

U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy allegedly ascended to the heights of federal government employment by way of what is known as a straw donor scheme. Legal experts say the alleged facts are evidence of a crime that should be easy to prosecute.

The allegations are tidily summed up in the headline of a Sunday afternoon story by the Washington Post: “Louis DeJoy’s rise as GOP fundraiser was powered by contributions from coworkers who were later reimbursed, former employees say.”

The House Oversight Committee has questions.

This driving upside down car would have been brilliant as is, but that they also drive it backwards is just the cherry on top.
