"Driving with Sparky"
This is a very funny snippet. Kudos to the research team at The Morning News for catching it (and to me for stealing it, he he!).
I’m not firing Sean Spicer. That guy gets great ratings. Everyone tunes in.
- President Trump, post
Trump is political chemotherapy.
Because if your country has a tumor, then it might need a little chemo. (cha!)
The pol chemo metaphor is from Mark Cuban, who is rabidly anti-Trump. He sees it as an insult, I presume. I see it incredibly positive, or as Cuban would say, "phenomenal".
[Cuban] argued that if you view Trump's presidency as "political chemotherapy," then he might deserve a higher grade. "If that's the way you're evaluating Donald Trump, he's doing a phenomenal job"
I am a little surprised that foreign policy has cut to the front of the line so quickly, but so be it.
"Total failure of the last eight years". Ya think!
The French Trump (Marine Le Pen?) won in their primaries last weekend, advancing to the final election against some other doof. Just like the real Trump, the media worldwide is absolutely and unanimously certain that the French Trump will lose. The polls show "overwhelmingly" that she has no chance. (snort) We'll see about that.
The overwhelming likelihood is that Macron will be the next president of France—all recent opinion polls, including two conducted yesterday evening, show that he would beat Le Pen by a wide margin.

I got some spam from the Paramount Theater regarding their upcoming production of Jesus Christ Superstar. Excellent! That's one of my all-time fave musicals. So, I clicked on the link and saw their short preview video... oh look, they have a black Judas like the original... no, wait, that's Jesus... ok, that's cool... wait a second, everyone's black, the whole cast?!?
Ah, there it is.
It is not gimmicky. Our responsibility as storytellers is to find ways to represent truth in ways that translate to every audience no matter the color, creed, orientation or status. Having an all-black cast in this show at this time in our lives is very important.That's some nice leftie logic there. It IS gimmicky to have an all-black cast. It does NOT appeal to every audience as you're specifically appealing only to people of a one race and one political orientation. I won't be attending. It's my responsibility as a consumer and citizen to NOT support this kind of discrimination. And I think it's "very important" to skip your production. (cha!)
- the director on his all-black cast, trib story
I guess I'd respectfully asked this director... So, if Ted Neely auditioned for the part of Jesus, you'd tell him to hit the bricks because he's white? And if Yvonne Elliman showed up to play Mary Magdalene, you'd shun her because she's part Asian? And the obvious... were you only hired as director because you're black? Were other, more qualified and talented, candidates turned away? (shrug)
Ok. The BIG ending...
