• President Trump backed the Confederate statues Tuesday and Democrats claimed he's lost the public trust for good. There are many ways to win over an audience. Every night at the Comedy Store, I walk out onstage in that white suit of mine and everybody thinks they're getting free chicken.
• Lexington, Kentucky, is bracing for another demonstration by White Nationalists and counter protests by leftists over Rebel monuments. Bloodshed is imminent. If there's one thing we've all learned, it's we should probably decide in advance what to do with the statues from the next civil war.
• Barcelona was targeted by an ISIS terrorist who ran over scores of pedestrians Thursday. Has anyone considered that Arab men are simply terrible behind the wheel? If there's anything we've learned from Barcelona, London Bridge and Paris, it's that perhaps Muslims should let women drive.
• President Trump ripped both the Nazis and the communists seen beating each other on news video in the Charlottesville riot last week. All the media will say is that Trump defended the Nazis. I'm already missing the good old days when we were on the verge of a nuclear war with North Korea.
• Congressman Steve Cohen of Tennessee announced he will introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump over his recent remarks blaming both the far-left groups and the far-right groups in the Charlottesville riots. It gets worse. Mexico has just offered to pay for the impeachment.
• President Trump wondered out loud if the Jefferson and Washington monuments will be removed along with the Confederate monuments. There's the educational aspect to consider. After all the statues come down, where will school teachers take the children during White History Month?
• The Louisville Courier-Journal said Senator Rand Paul should either get on board with the GOP health care program or exit the party. The Libertarian refuses to expand Medicaid. A libertarian believes that the ideal weight for a government official is three pounds, including the urn.
• Baltimore took down four Confederate statues in public parks. They said the removal honors the end of slavery. The next day, the Dodgers sold pitcher Chris Hatcher to Oakland and the NFL put Dallas Cowboy Ezekiel Elliot on the bench in case he gets any fancy ideas like escaping.
• NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday it's likely that London will soon be awarded its own NFL team. It's been heading that direction. In England, they already drink beer by the pints and drive on the left side of the road, so for most NFL players the only adjustment is the time change.
• The Sacramento Bee says California's secession petition is gaining steam statewide. Cal State schools are allowing separate dorms for black students, Long Beach is the symbol of free trade, and sanctuary city claims are based on states' rights. Between secession, segregation, free trade and states' rights, would someone please tell me again what Democrats have against Confederate statues?
