Wow! What a Week

A humorous look-back at the week that was

Wow! What a week (Nov. 26-Dec. 1)

Trump does it again; the list of famous men accused of sexual harassment keeps growing; and some Charlotte Republicans still can’t accept the fact that they lost…bigly.

WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 27: (AFP OUT) U.S. President Donald Trump (R) speaks during an event honoring members of the Native American code talkers in the Oval Office of the White House, on November 27, 2017 in Washington, DC. Trump stated, "You were here long before any of us were here. Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas." in reference to his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren. (Photo by Oliver Contreras-Pool/Getty Images)

WOW! What a Week.

People are upset that President Trump called Sen. Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” while hosting Native American veterans at the White House. But they can’t be angrier than President Andrew Jackson’s portrait. His picture lurked in the background while Indians were standing in the White House. Jackson wasn’t too fond of Indians, so he must have been rolling over three or four times in his grave.

And here we go….

The sting
Some silly woman tried to fool the Washington Post with a fake story about Roy Moore. Jaime Phillips works for a conservative group named Project Veritas. Apparently, Phillips was pretending to have been impregnated by Moore when she was 15, saying he drove her all the way to Mississippi to get an abortion. Phillips tried to prove the Post was a second-rate newspaper, but she was busted instead. Post reporters followed her back to Project Veritas, where she parked and went inside. Who knew that they actually practiced journalism at the Washington Post?


You still mad, huh?
Conservatives are still talking about our election from two weeks ago. They are BIG mad because they got their butts kicked. Republicans have the presidency, Congress and the Supreme Court. And here in North Carolina, they also have the Senate and House of Representatives. Yet they are mad because Charlotte is under Democratic control. Complaints that Charlotte is turning into Chicago pour out of their mouths like curse words from sailors. Rather than place the blame on Trump, they want to blame people moving here from “more liberal places.” Instead of second guessing Republican Kenny Smith’s choice of running negative campaign ads, they say it’s time to adjust the districts. They didn’t reach out to minorities (African Americans especially), so it’s our fault that we didn’t vote Republican. Former Gov. Pat McCrory will be our last Republican Mayor. Don’t be mad about that, because that’s a future fun fact on a game show.


Do you believe me or your lying ears?
Trump says the tape of him speaking on the “Access Hollywood” bus is not actually him. Say huh?  So that wasn’t Trump bragging about sexually harassing/assaulting women? Then Billy Bush lost his job for nothing. He should call up the “Today” show and request to be reinstated. He wasn’t interviewing a candidate running for president but a mysterious man that sounds like Trump. Could it be a doppelganger that causes trouble by impersonating famous people? Someone should let former Klan leader David Duke know that he keeps praising a fraud.


Ho, ho, oh no!
With the sexual misconduct/harassment/rape list of white men growing every day, I have told my oldest son that Santa won’t be coming by with gifts this year. I figured that by mid-December, Santa will be added to the list as well. If you are wondering why I didn’t go the black Santa route, Megyn Kelly ruined that narrative by saying that Jesus and Santa were both white. I believe she thinks Jesus (of bronze skin and wooly hair) looked like Steven Seagal. Kelly’s reward for dashing the hopes of African American children was two gigs on NBC. Whoever drops a dime on Santa probably won’t get any justice. He’ll just fly back to the North Pole (Matt Lauer is there drinking coco now) where he can’t be touched by authorities.


That buzzz in the sky
New laws in North Carolina have added limits to where you can fly unmanned aircraft systems, i.e. drones. One limit says they can’t be flown within 500 feet of correctional facilities, because you don’t want someone flying in a cake with a file in it. And nighttime flying is not recommended. So, if you equip your drone with lights, you still can’t use it to peep into your neighbor’s bedrooms? I guess it’s back to the old-fashion way of looking through a telescope. Drone pilots are also required to register with the Federal Aviation Administration. Does this mean that if I buy a drone in Walgreens I need to get a pilot’s license?
