Irresponsible partiers ruined it for everyone. David Waldman drew the line, and “Gender Reveal Tuesdays” have been canceled at KITM World Headquarters until further notice. Happy now?

You can bet safety never got in the way of fun at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and their 2020 event appears to be accountable for 250,000 cases of COVID-19 at a public cost of $12 billion, almost 20% of the recent cases.

The 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan moved to 2021, but that doesn’t appear to be far enough. Donald Trump might have gotten us disinvited anyhow.

Donald might have pissed off Sheldon Adelson to the point of losing out on Adelson’s nine-figure checks. This would be kind of bummer for anyone, but the Trump campaign could’ve really used the cash, as it seems to have lost about $800 million between here and the parking lot. Donald Trump might be forced to spend “his own money” now, heh heh… There was a time when Trump’s dollar gap could’ve be filled with rubles, but Vlad owes him a bit less each day.

Maybe Donald could float a loan over at the Post Office. Joan McCarter tells us Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is rolling in it. It’ll be hard spending all that money where he’s going.

Nancy Pelosi and Steven Mnuchin might have a plan to avert yet another government shutdown, if only they can coax Mitch McConnell out of his shell.

Teachers and students need to be focused on staying healthy to continue to learn. Betsy DeVos isn’t particularly interested about any of that.
