National Eggs Benedict Day - No, eating Eggs Benedict doesn't mean you are a traitor...unless you are eating them at Mar-a-lago!!






                                                       National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day - After the pandemic, I wouldn't be surprised if more people accidentally did this!!

"Quote of the Day"

 

"I want to see the country burn? (repeated several times) You son of a bitch! I want to see the country burn? You punk! You’re nothing but a punk!"

 

Ah, another intellectual discussion on Faux News Hannity between Geraldo Rivera and Dan Bongino with Hannity moderating?? all happening over Zoom. Geraldo was defending the protests after Daunte Wright was killed by a Brooklyn Center, Mn. police officer after she mistakenly pulled her gun out and not the taser she thought was in her hand. Things got heated when Bongino said “People like Geraldo continue to pump out a race narrative with no data to back it up at all. All you want to do is see the country burn.” Then, that's when Geraldo 'burned'. After calling Bongino 'a punk', Bongino said "You wouldn't say that to my face!" Not to sure about that Bongs, Rivera might be 70 YO but still looks fit.


See you tomorrow!!
