9.14.20

It's Monday. There are 50(!) days until the presidential election. Trump takes his superspreader rallies west, Trump's Putin guy messes with CDC numbers and the president of the United States says police killed an American for "retribution."

Note: Well hello, gorgeous patriots. We hope you had a great weekend, but we also know you're living in Trumpland so your weekend probably sucked slug ass. Around TBS HQ, we did a little catching up on the news (We also watched Ted Lasso on AppleTV, and it might be the funniest, sweetest show we've seen in forever.), and what we discovered shocked the living hell out of us. How fucked up is 2020? Well we thought we knew, but then we learned that some dude from the Mighty Ducks is running for President. No, not the NHL hockey team, but believe it or not, that would make more sense. He's from the movie Mighty Ducks, and he's not Emilio Estevez. Apparently he's a child actor turned crypto guy so you know he's cool. Lol. Just kidding. Also, he gave a bunch of money to Trump last year. But he says he has a good reason. Anyway, next time we watch that movie, we're rooting for those assholes on the Hawks. Even they aren't trying to spoil the most important election in American history. What's next? The kid from Ladybugs hacks the DNC? Oh no wait that's why Scott Baio is in the parking lot with a saw. More: New York Post

Note two: We're glad we could start out this week with such obscure and dated references. But it's not our fault these scrubs are coming out of the woodwork to try and rig this thing for Trump. Now if you'll excuse us, we need to google the cast of Punky Brewster and get some mean jokes ready just in case. 

Note three: Speaking of sports, Colin Kaepernick still doesn't have a job.

Note four: Speaking of sports, NAOMI OSAKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More: ESPN

Note five: We're beginning to think Peter Thiel is a creepy, racist piece of shit. No, wait, we've thought that for a while. More: Buzzfeed News

Note six: Ya know, we are just not fans of Mondays. Especially in Trumpland. But today is different because Alex Vindman called Trump a "free chicken" and we seriously can't stop laughing about it. More: The Atlantic

Note seven: America has poll taxes again. We're a fucking mess, y'all. More: The Washington Post

Note eight: Have to believe if this was a white church demanding an apology from a Democratic candidate, we'd be reading about it in every publication and watching it nonstop on cable. More: Religion News

Note nine: Kanye, dude, this is embarrassing. You're making the Mighty Ducks guy look like a real pro. More: Vice

Note 10: Oh, Susan. You are nothing if not predictable… and pathetic… More: Associated Press

Note 11: It's Monday morning, and we're already getting carried away with the notes section. Anyway, we're glad to be back with you, and we hope you have a fantastic week. We also hope you've already made a plan to vote, and you are annoying the living shit out of everyone you know to make sure they do the same. Tip: Avoid the douchebags in the red hats. We love y'all, and we're grateful you joined us today. Now let's kick some ass!

What happens in Vegas can kill you

Especially if you're hanging out with Trump people. Yes, dipshit has taken his Who the Fuck is Herman Cain? 2020 tour to the western part of the country, doing multiple dangerous stops in Nevada. He even did his first indoor rally since Tulsa, which caused people to get sick. When the kiss asses at the Sheldon Adelson-owned Review Journal asked Trump if he's worried about getting sick, he said, "I'm on a stage and it's very far away. And so no I'm not concerned at all." That's a real quote from a real dumb motherfucker. Today Trump is heading even further west to no doubt mock the pain and suffering of a region on fire. Those poor people are about to get an incoherent lecture on raking out their forests from a guy who thinks invisible planes are real. More: The Nevada Independent

Putin!

Putin's guy at Health and Human Services -- no shit, Michael Caputo used to do PR for Putin and is now the spokesman at HHS -- got caught trying to fuck with CDC numbers. Yeah, last week we learned he had tried to muzzle Fauci and then on Friday, Politico broke the story that Caputo and other political appointees at HHS were demanding the ability to review and change critical CDC reports dealing with the pandemic. This was not the huge news it should've been. More: Politico

Well that's terrifying

No longer hiding his authoritarian impulses, Trump told that drunk ass Fox lady that a man suspected of killing two Trump supporters at a riot and was later shot and killed by police was done so for "retribution." Yeah, that's what he said. The remark came just a day after a witness came forward to say that Michael Reinoehl was eating a gummy worm when police opened fire. Again, this was not the huge news it should have been. In the same interview, Trump said he would put down election night protests easily and quickly, calling Americans taking to the streets for democracy "an insurrection." Yeah, we're scared, but there ain't no way that dumb motherfucker knows what insurrection means. More: Business Insider
