Too little too late,
:thumbup: We won't rest until Colin Kaepernick is named NFL commissioner. More seriously, I could see him being hired to some advisory role if he even would want it.
but at least it'll piss Cheetohead off.
How long till the tweet?
What's the over/under?
(damn, I miss sports)

You might be right, he generally runs behind the breaking news by about a day. See Drew Brees.
He could be further behind than usual. He was in Maine yesterday creating the next CV-19 hot spot, and he might focus on John Kelly and Mattis again, instead.

Trump jabs Maine’s Democratic governor; she hits back

Of course, he did retweet praise for himself while adding his own nastiness:

Donald Trump's latest tweets!
Riot gear or military control is not necessary because ANTIFA & other Wacko groups of Anarchists aren’t present to cause trouble. Incredible people. Thank you Maine! https://t.co/KGOcoQORMg

I thought you were joking.
1521 people x 0.1% = 1.521. Maybe there are 2.

I see that you beat me to it with today's tweet.
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2494&p=121371#p121371
Great minds . . .

1521 people x 0.5% Native American = 7.605. Add the 1.521 Black and there's a baseball team.

I've been through Guilford on the way up to Moosehead Lake, and can vouch for it's place as official "far boondocks". I'd double-check about that one Black guy, though. Unless they imported one from Portland (8.25%), there wouldn't have been any out there in the wild, and for most of Maine (1.3%) are considered an invasive species.

I know, it's not shocking, it's not surprising, it's just what the asshole does, but still - other than in the context of Trump, can you imagine any country's leader, in the midst of a pandemic, economic meltdown, massive protests across the nation...bothering to tweet like this?
This fool has got to go.

C'mon guys, he had important work to do hindering our pandemic response.

As Trump touts increased production, coronavirus swabs made during his Maine factory tour will be tossed in the trash

We do like to tie ourselves in linguistic knots, don't we? Headline writer just couldn't bring him/herself to write "Indian Group urges..." yet the group opposing the Redskins name calls itself "Indians" and uses a logo that wouldn't look out of place on the side of a DC helmet. :lol:

I think the All Blacks don't have many more Black players than the Redskins have Indians.

The New Zealand national rugby union team has always been integrated with Maori players, and the team name has nothing to do with skin color.
... New Zealand's early uniforms consisted of a black jersey with a silver fern and white knickerbockers. By the 1905 tour they were wearing all black, except for the silver fern, and the name "All Blacks" dates from this time....

Yeah, I know, but no matter the original intent of the name, you couldn't get by naming a team "All Blacks" in the US. People apply their own connotations, intent be damned.
