The Olympics are happening and I can not stop watching them, so we play some clips that show just how ridiculous the coverage has been.
And how ridiculous has it been? Well, did you know, according to Merideth Vierra, that the Queen of England has a “wicked sense of humor”? Yep, that was really said by someone being PAID to say things on television. Oh sure the Queen has a wicked sense of humor, but it doesn’t come out until after she’s had a few drinks and starts going off about the immigrants.
Twitter is being talked about non stop by the NBC announcers also. I find it kind of annoying when I am watching the most celebrated sporting event in the world, and announcers keep stressing the athletes Twitter followers to let us know just how important these games are. What did we do before twitter? How did we know things were important? The answer is –WE DIDN”T!
Donald Trump went on Gretta VanSusters show to announce that he is being honored by the Republican party of Florida as their “Statesman of The Year”. Of course, the Republicans’ idea of a “statesman” is any GOP politician who hasn’t been arrested in an airport men’s room.
Wow, Statesman of the Year. And that’s on top being the Douchebag of All Time. In this interview Trump puts on a display of neediness and insecurity that is embarrassing even by Trumps standards.
Harry Riedhas taken the gloves off and is making the charge that Romney has paid no taxes in the last 10 years. Of course Romney and the republicans are screaming bloody murder. And yes, it is kind of funny that the party that has been running around for the past 3 years asking to see the presidents “Long Form” birth certificate, college records,
passport records, has a problem when someone asks to see their nominee for presidents tax returns.
Even the media is confused by Harry Reid not backing down and have started to compare Reid to Sen. Joe McCarthy. Yeah, accusing someone of being a communist, blackballing them from employment and ruining lives is the same thing as asking a billionaire running for president to release his taxes. Another nice false equivalency by the mainstream media.
With Stef Zamorano, Steve Rosenfield and Carl Kozlowski.
Used to be we had a banking system that worked for everybody: citizens, investors, working people,
entrepreneurs and banks. But that was when the banks were sensibly regulated so they couldn't be manipulated to benefit the few at the expense of the rest of us. You remember those days, before Bill Clinton turned the democrats into a bunch of corporate lap dogs and half the people in government weren't completely bought yet.
Enter Sandy Weil. If you’ve never heard of Sandy Weill, he’s a former Chairman and CEO of Citigroup He actually created CitiGroup, the first Too Big Too Fail bank, in 1998 when he merged Travelor's Group with Citicorp . . he was on Squawk Box recently, I assume, to explain how his plan for world domination was going swimmingly until James Bond ruined everything, blew up his secret lair and stole his wife. But he came on to tell everybody how deregulation the banks was just a mistake made by well intentioned people (who just happened to make an obscene fortune off their mistake).
Gore Vidal passed away last week and Steve Rosenfieldlaments the loss of all our “Mid-Centuryguys” in another one of his brilliant and often hilarious essays.
Tuesday's with Moron is back and he's upset about the intolerance of liberals over the Chick-fil-A wanting to deny gays equal rights.
