Quick Hits: Volume CLXXXVII

- Fox News Channel hosted Dem presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in a Town Hall event this past Monday. The current POTUS wasn't impressed.

It's really gonna be lit when Trump lumps in Fox News with his "ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE" diatribes.

With all due respect Mr. President, moderators Baier and Martha MacCallum didn't exactly lob softball questions to Sanders. If anything, Sanders' response to hosts' questions gave the viewing audience a sense of how the septuagenarian socialist is in a veritable fantasy land with his policy ideas. It's also somewhat chilling how Sanders' supporters (particularly the barking, clapping seals in the studio audience) indicated they are willing to trade freedom & liberty for government "taking care of us."

I believe Trump missed an opportunity to thank Fox for exposing his possible 2020 opponent as the commie he is. Sad!

- The Minnesota Twins' home stadium of Target Field is in its 10th season of existence. As such, I was really hoping we were past the vacuous discussion of why the stadium has no roof.

Sadly, no, as KARE-11 reporter Jana Shortal decided to stoke the fire.

I can't begin to guess how many hours I've wasted since 2010 trying to convince the pro-roof crowd that they're flat out wrong. But for some reason I just can't let it go.

That said, my answer to Ms. Shortal's question is rather succinct:


- I miss the good old days when Presidents and First Ladies rode off in the sunset and enjoyed post-White House living without garnering much fanfare.

Unfortunately that's just not in the narcissistic Obamas.

Former first lady Michelle Obama compared life in America under President Trump to living with a “divorced dad,” according to The Independent.

“For anyone who had any problems with Barack Obama, let’s just think about what we were troubled by – there were never any indictments,” she said during an interview with late-night host Stephen Colbert in London while promoting her memoir “Becoming,” according to the publication.

She then joked that the U.S. under Trump's presidency was akin to a teenager.

“We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled,” Obama said. “Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad.”

I know Michelle sees herself in the motif of her pal Beyonce and her "WHO RUN THE WORLD? GIRLS!!" mantra. But as we're finding out with each passing day, feminists who believe becoming more empowered involves diminishing men aren't going to like the society we devolve into.

OK, the woman who, with her husband, brought a sequence of gangsta rappers into the White House is telling us about how awful broken homes are. Self-awareness does not seem to be her strong point.

Amen on open air baseball. Yes, it can get messy in April and early May, but real grass, fresh air....what is wrong with people these days? It's like the recent "Lorax" movie where people are appalled at the idea of trees and fresh air. I'm persuaded that one reason is that a lot of clothes today are totally worthless except between 70 and 75 F inside with humidity control. My kids make fun of my wardrobe, but I'm the one who's comfortable outside when it's below 50 degrees.
