Oh, and Twitter lucked out BIG TIME, eh?
It’s a brand new game …..
Why even have a Press Sec?
Even they have been reduced to following their boss’s tweets to find out his view on things….
And of course he doesn’t heed his lawyers and advisors warnings to stop giving judges ammo to rule against his own comments and admissions on line….
But that’s Donald Trump people…
He ain’t gonna listen…
He ain’t gonna change…
Nada Bakos: “Every time President Trump tweets, journalists and Twitter followers attempt to analyze what he means. Intelligence agencies around the world do, too: They’re trying to determine what vulnerabilities the president of the United States may have. And he’s giving them a lot to work with.”
“Trump’s Twitter feed is a gold mine for every foreign intelligence agency. Usually, intelligence officers’ efforts to collect information on world leaders are methodical, painstaking and often covert. CIA operatives have risked their lives to learn about foreign leaders so the United States could devise strategies to counter our adversaries. With Trump, though, secret operations are not necessary to understand what’s on his mind: The president’s unfiltered thoughts are available night and day, broadcast to his 32.7 million Twitter followers immediately and without much obvious mediation by diplomats, strategists or handlers.”Share on Facebook
They start off as they usually do….
Strong based on a good crew of pitchers…
But one by one those guys have bit the dust….
Added to the teams problems is their bats have silent, leaving tons of people hanging out on base unable to score…
So coach Terry Collins is probably gonna have to change it up on the Rooster….
The season has officially shifted on the Mets from one that had spring training talk of the World Series to now talk about selling veteran assets at next month’s trade deadline. While it’s not being said out loud, it’s clear it’s time to start over. With a farm system that is thin and veterans that are in their walk-year, they are ready to listen for offers on player like Curtis Granderson, Asdrubal Cabrera and Jay Bruce, an industry source confirmed an ESPN report.
They are looking to flip veteran players for prospects to rebuild from the minor leagues up, the industry source confirmed Friday.
“They aren’t out there shopping them yet,” the source said, “but they are open to listening to offers.”
They have to because this season is all but over.
Thursday night, the Mets dropped to 10 games below .500 when they were swept by the Dodgers. They went into Friday night’s game with the Giants 12 games behind the Nationals in the division and 14.5 games out of the second wild card spot.
With three of their starters on the disabled list and Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey not expected back until at least late next month, the idea of a Mets’ turnaround has faded….

Lonzo Ball is going to the ‘League’….National Basketball League…
But he is carrying his dad on his back…
And his dad won’t stop talking….And TALKING …..
Lonzo Ball sat behind a microphone inside a midtown Manhattan hotel Wednesday afternoon, reporters from around the world pointing tape recorders and video cameras in his direction and peppering him with questions. Given how camera-friendly Ball’s father, LaVar, has become in recent months, one could be forgiven for assuming his son would be similarly loquacious.
In the span of about three minutes, however, 16 questions were asked and answered by the former UCLA star. Most of his answers were roughly 10 words or less. All of his responses were polite, offered with a slight smile. The 19-year-old exhibited a polish rarely seen among even seasoned interview subjects — let alone among a room of teenagers on the eve of one of the biggest days of their lives.
Of course, LaVar was a popular topic.
“To tell you the truth? I don’t know,” Ball said with a smile and a shake of his head Wednesday, when asked how many times he’s been asked about his father. “Too many times.
“I’d like it to be [just about basketball]. But, living in reality, probably not.”…..

Ole’ Joe is hanging in there as the 2020 Democratic Presidential sweepstakes filed grows….
Sources close to Biden say he learned lessons from the 2016 election cycle that could prove helpful in a 2020 run.
He’s told people around him that Democratic nominee Hillary Clintonwasn’t a good candidate because she fell “out of touch” with parts of the Democratic base. It is a factor that cost her the election, he has bemoaned to friends time and again.
After seeing the blowback endured by Clinton and more recently former President Barack Obama, Biden is “purposefully” steering clear of paid speeches to corporations or taking on corporate work, as one Biden ally put it.
Biden, sources say, regrets not running for office in 2016, and if he does decide to run again, he doesn’t want unforced errors to hamper his chances.
“My sense from talking to him is that he would love the opportunity to do it,” one Democratic operative close to Biden said of a potential White House run. “He’s doing the things he needs to do, he’s stepping up to be a leader of the party — and the party needs it — and his poll numbers look good.”
A Morning Consult and Politico poll released on Monday shows Biden leading handily among other potential Democratic candidates, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.).
While the poll could be interpreted in part as a measurement of Biden’s name recognition, the results still showed that 74 percent of Democratic voters have a favorable view of the former vice president, compared to 51 percent for Warren and 45 percent for Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.). Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was not included in the poll…..
The poll asked Registered DEMOCRATS…Bernie Sanders is NOT a Registered Democrat…He’s NOT on the list…..

This has been talked about for months….
Trump is NOT happy that his people don’t promote him stronger even if he’s ALL over the place on twitter and contradicts those who try to speak for him….
Last week, Spicer and White House chief of staff Reince Priebus reached out to Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham about the role of press secretary and Daily Mail editor David Martosko about the role of communications director, according to a White House official.
Spicer and Priebus have had preliminary discussions with Ingraham, and Martosko met with chief strategist Steve Bannon last week, according to the White House official.
Ingraham declined to comment. In a phone call, Martosko said “I can’t hear you,” and then hung up. He did not respond to an email inquiry.
Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, who was considered for press secretary during the transition, is not interested in the position and has not been interviewed, according to the people familiar with the effort.
The search for new members of the White House communications team comes after Mike Dubke resigned from the communications director job last month, and Spicer once again took on dual roles as the White House faces numerous scandals, including the deepening Russia probes….

My first reaction to the shooting of yesterday at the baseball practice for GOP members in Virginia was Donald Trump has rode the anger thing to the White House…
But this week I had a conversation with a Trump supporter and he mentioned in his guys defense the fact that Bernie Sanders was also a guy peddling ‘anger’….
He was Right….
The shooter yesterday was a Sanders supporter….
Now Bernie Sanders , nor Donald Trump are guilty of provoking this guys actions…
But the both ( who are NOW elected officials) along with the media HAVE put in place a climate where strong emotions generate support , votes, media revenue and YES….Violence….
The most ardent supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders have long been outspoken about their anger toward Republicans — and in some cases toward Democrats. Their idol, the senator from Vermont, has called President Trump a “demagogue” and said recently that he was “perhaps the worst and most dangerous president in the history of our country.”
Now, in Mr. Sanders’s world, his fans have something concrete to grapple with: James T. Hodgkinson, a former volunteer for Mr. Sanders’s presidential campaign, is suspected of opening fire on Republican lawmakers practicing baseball in Alexandria, Va.
That shooting on Wednesday, which wounded four people, may prove to be an unexpected test for a movement born out of Mr. Sanders’s left-wing, populist politics and a moment for liberals to figure out how to balance anger at Mr. Trump with inciting violence.
“Both sides need to look in the mirror,” said Nina Turner, a former Ohio state senator who campaigned for Mr. Sanders and is working on a new think tank started by the senator’s wife. “We have to decide what kind of language we are going to use in our political discourse.”…..

The man, whom neurologists are calling a “medical mystery,” has performed highly exacting tasks in one of the country’s top legal positions despite having virtually no short- or long-term memory.
“In all the medical literature, we have never seen an example of someone capable of holding down such a high-powered job while having no memory whatsoever of people he met, things he said, places he has been, or thoughts he has had,” Logsdon said. “It’s the stuff of science fiction.”…
NY Giants are gonna have to do the ‘Right Thing’ and pay the man….
Odell Beckham Jr. came back to the Giants and said he never wants to leave.
About a week ago, co-owner John Mara told a Town Hall assemblage of fans that he wanted Beckham to be a Giant for the rest of his career. On Tuesday, Beckham’s first day back on the field with the team since his conspicuous absence from voluntary OTA workouts, the receiver said that would be fine with him.
“I think we’re on the same page there,” he said after the first practice of the three-day mandatory minicamp. “Obviously, this is one of the best organizations in the league and I would love to be here for the rest of my life.”
Good. That’s settled.
In an abstract way, at least. The reality is that Beckham has two seasons remaining on his rookie deal, will be underpaid compared to similarly productive wideouts in 2017, and was absent from voluntary OTAs the past three weeks. That last part caused many to connect dots — some of which Beckham seemingly placed there himself on social media — and assume he was angling for a new deal by staying away from the team…..
