"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
Donald Trump showed all apprentices why he’s the “MASTER deBATER” in Vegas, and dropped quite a few F-Bombs along the way. “The Bronze Dons” as I like to call him (with his fake tan to match the fake hair), was giving a speech at a reception hosted by two Republican women’s groups in the Treasure Island Hotel & Casino, further alluding to a possible bid in the 2012 presidential election.
As if to plant the seed, Donald said that if he were President, he would be the one man who decides to stand up against OPEC and the rising price of oil, stating:
“They (OPEC) want to go in and raise the price of oil because we have nobody in Washington that sits back and says you’re not going to raise that fu@cking price, you understand me?”
First off, I don’t think he’ll make it to Washington. Second, if he did make it to Washington, I doubt he would say that to OPEC. Third, if he did say that to OPEC, I doubt they would keep the price of oil low.
That’s just all campaign talk trying to appeal to your potential voters by playing into their current problems. He did so again by discussing the War in Iraq when he said:
“We build a school, we build a road. They blow up the road. They blow up the school. We build another school, we build another road, they blow them up. We build again, in the meantime we can’t get a fu@king school built in Brooklyn.”
Get it? He’s totally playing the role ain’t he?
Trump was also in town for Steve Wynn‘s wedding, and has expressed the nation will know his decision for the 2012 election by June.
BTW… who told him it would be okay to drop F-bombs in front of a whole slew of old white republican women? That’s like the last crowd you wanna do that to.
NBA Comissioner David Stern fined Kobe Bryant $100,000 for what he said were “offensive and inexcusable” comments made during last night’s home game against the San Antonio Spurs. Kobe used an expletive and an anti-gay slur against a referee after giving the Lakers star a technical foul.
Kobe apologized publicly today stating that his use of the word were used in the heat of the moment of the game, and do not reflect the way he feels about the gay and lesbian community. Kobe also had a phone conversation with Joe Solomonese, President of the Human Rights Campaign, apologizing for his actions.
Solomonese gave a statement that he had a very sincere conversation with Kobe, and they applaud his ability for Kobe to take responsibility for his actions. Solomonese also applauded Comissioner Sterns decision to fine Kobe and to issue the proper statement to the world for Kobe’s actions at a time when “bullying” is also at an all time high around our country, and our world.
Comissioner Stern said in a statement Wednesday:
“Kobe Bryant’s comment during last night’s game was offensive and inexcusable. While I’m fully aware that basketball is an emotional game, such a distasteful term should never be tolerated. Accordingly, I have fined Kobe $100,000. Kobe and everyone associated with the NBA know that insensitive or derogatory comments are not acceptable and have no place in our game or society.”
$100K is a drop in the bucket for Kobe, so while this may be harmful towards his image for now, if he really wanted to punish him, he should’ve done something like a 3 week suspension without pay, especially now while teams are still fighting for their playoff standings.
But guess what, I’m from LA so I probably wouldn’t want that !
What I’ve never understood, is how much profanity occurs on an NBA court during any given game. You would think they would all know by now that there’s damn near 40 video cameras floatin’ around these stadiums at all times, and peeps with microphones and everything. Come on now, you know you hear it on tv all the time, when they’re playin and yell out things like “shi!t!” or “m@ther#ucker”. And we always laugh.
Somebody aint laughin no more
