Washington Nationals

Nats Play Ball


cjones11082019

It’s not that I’m disappointed by the Washington Nationals. I’m disgusted.

I have never lived in an area of a major league baseball team winning the World Series. I’m a Cubs fan, but I do like the Nats. I have enjoyed their run to the World Series. While the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup two seasons ago, the University of Virginia won the Men’s NCAA basketball tournament earlier this year, and the Washington Mystics won the WNBA title this past weekend, I’ve never seen excitement like this area displayed for the Nationals over the past few weeks.

You can’t go outside without seeing someone in Nationals gear. From Gaithersburg all the way down to Fredericksburg, people are selling Nationals shirts and caps on the side of the road. You can’t have a conversation in this area without the Nats coming up. The cable guy came over last Thursday and he helpfully informed me the Nationals won the World Series the night before. This region hasn’t been universally fixated on a single subject like this since the D.C. Sniper.

The Nationals have built goodwill in this community and they’re widely loved. The Nationals won five elimination games in the playoffs, which is a first. They came back after being given up on after the All-Star break. They barely made the playoffs, then stormed their way to win it all. The Nat’s home ballpark was full of spectators to watch them play game 7 in Houston. On Saturday, the city threw them a parade. The next night, they were celebrating on ice with the Capitals. And come Monday, they blew it all away on some Trump MAGA bullshit.

Championship teams are always invited to the White House. Well, they used to be. Politics has entered the situation a few times before, but for the most part, politics hasn’t been a factor in visiting the White House, no matter if the president is a Republican or a Democrat. It was rare for an athlete to be scorned for visiting. It was never about the president as much as it was about the office and the invitation. The team shows up, remarks are made, and the president gets a jersey. Boycotts by athletes are rare. That changed with Trump.

Trump is the most divisive president in American history. While Republicans criticized President Obama for weighing in on matters they said didn’t concern him, like a white cop arresting a Harvard professor for entering his own home, they’re supportive of Donald Trump using black athletes protesting police violence to feed his racist base and demanding that they all be fired. They’ve sat back and watched Donald Trump feud with LeBron James, Steph Curry, Colin Kaepernick, Meghan Rapinoe, and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Trump refused to invite the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they won the Super Bowl, citing kneeling protests during the national anthem before NFL games. Never mind that none of the players for the Eagles ever participated in those protests. He invited the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House until Steph Curry made comments saying he wouldn’t go…and then Trump uninvited them because he’s a toddler (in a public diss, the Warriors did meet with former President Obama). He didn’t invite the U.S. women’s national team after they won the World Cup and said they wouldn’t accept an invite. So far, Donald Trump hasn’t invited the Mystics, probably because he’s afraid of black women.

The Red Sox visited in 2018, but most of the minority members of the team refused to attend. Only one National has publicly stated he was refusing Trump’s White House invite.

Reliever Sean Doolittle and his wife, Eireann Dolan, have been involved in political and social issues, including working with Syrian refugees and military veterans and supporting gay rights. Doolittle said, “People say you should go because it’s about respecting the office of the president, and I think over the course of his time in office he’s done a lot of things that maybe don’t respect the office.”

He’s absolutely correct. Donald Trump doesn’t respect the office he holds or the people he serves. When he was booed last week at Nationals Park…twice…the fans weren’t booing the office. They weren’t booing President (sic) Donald Trump. They were booing Donald Trump. All the players for the Nationals, not just Doolittle, should have been paying attention.

The region that supports the Nationals is blue. Washington, Maryland, and Northern Virginia are very liberal. While the players shouldn’t be silenced or discouraged from expressing their beliefs, they should always be mindful of the feelings of those who support them. While they might hold their noses, their fans wouldn’t hold it against them for visiting Trump’s White House. But after observing the actions of several of the players, a lot of fans will feel dirty wearing their Nationals caps.

Eight of the Nationals didn’t attend, and the ones who did are now downplaying their actions. Yeah, they got some explaining to do.

The team fawned and slobbered over Donald Trump so much that Mike Pence probably said, “get a room.” Kurt Suzuki put on a “Make America Great Again” cap and then he was groped from behind by Trump. Yes, it looked as bad and awkward as I described it. Ryan Zimmerman has been a favorite of fans since the team relocated from Canada and made him its first-ever draft pick. What he did Monday has now tarnished his reputation. He stepped up to the microphone and thanked Trump, the man who’s personally responsible for the increase in hate crimes in this nation, for “keeping everyone here safe in our country.” Ugh. And then he thanked him for “continuing to make America the greatest country in the world.”

What the hell, Zimmerman? Were you coached on Trump flattery by Gordon Sondland? Are you seeking an ambassadorship? Zimmerman aped Trump’s campaign slogan. All that was missing was him leading a chant of “lock her up” and “build the wall.”

Zimmerman, who is a white multi-millionaire, is oblivious or has chosen to ignore Trump’s attacks on people who don’t look like him. He’s ignoring Trump’s racist insults toward people who look like his teammates. Actually, these Nationals are ignoring that several of their teammates are from the nations Trump has defined as “shitholes” and is working tirelessly to prevent people immigrating to this nation from them. Zimmerman and his teammates are ignoring Trump’s past comments of “send them back.” A portion of this team would never have been invited to the White House, less enough allowed to enter the country if they weren’t baseball players.

These Nationals aren’t representative of their community; and that’s not only disgusting but heartbreaking. Couldn’t our sports teams just break our hearts from their failures in the game, and not by revealing they’re Trump-supporting troglodytes eager to join his goon squad?

Last week, I drew a cartoon of Trump inviting, not the Nationals, but the Nationalists to the White House because he knew they wouldn’t boo him. From witnessing the vulgar displaying of nationalism from the Nationals Monday, that’s exactly what he got. It couldn’t have been more of a MAGA hate rally if he had invited Kurt Schilling and Ty Cobb.

It’s crap like this that makes me think I should only watch basketball. Now if only the Washington Wizards would change their name.

Go Nats!

When Donald Trump was booed during game 5 of the World Series at Nationals Park in Washington, the crowd wasn’t booing the president of the United States. They were booing Donald Trump.

While a lot of people, even many on the left, are upset the president of the United States was booed, others like myself found it appropriate. Presidents have been booed before, and at Nationals’ baseball games. Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama were both booed by Nationals fans. But neither of them got a “lock him up” chant. Neither saw banners inside the park blaring “Impeach!”

There are a lot of reasons to boo Donald Trump. He’s destroying this country. He aims to be divisive. He only wants to be president for the worst Americans. He caters to Russia. He’s a narcissist engaging in corruption as we speak. He promotes nepotism. He’s a sexist. He’s really stupid. And…he’s the worst president in American history. But maybe the best reason to boo Donald Trump is because he’s a racist. The man has publicly stated he’s a nationalist.

Acting director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services, and former Virginia attorney general, Ken Cuccinelli got into a heated exchange with Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz during a committee hearing Wednesday. Wasserman Schultz accused Cuccinelli of pursuing a “white supremacist” ideology.

She said, “You want to block all immigration and make life harder for immigrants and you have demonstrated that you will pursue this heinous white supremacist ideology at all costs, even if it means making critically ill children your collateral damage in the process.”

The Cooch was upset and said her comments were “defamatory.” She shot back, “there’s nothing defamatory about it.”

Cuccinelli said, “I am not a white supremacist, as you alluded, nor is the president.”

If Ken Cuccinelli is your character witness that you’re not a racist, you’re gonna want to find another character.

Wasserman Schultz said “facts matter” when Cuccinelli argued he’s not a white supremacist. She’s right. It’s not defamatory to call a racist a racist. Donald Trump is pursuing a white supremacist ideology.

If Donald Trump doesn’t want to get booed, then he may not want to invite the Washington Nationals to the White House. If he wants to be in a warm, loving, sycophantic atmosphere that makes him feel squishy inside, then he needs to invite like-minded people, like white nationalists. I’m sure Stephen Miller will want autographs.

You need to boo Donald Trump. I need to boo Donald Trump. The people who aren’t booing him are the ones wearing sheets.

Boo Hoo Hoo


cjones10312019

Trump and his supporters point to his MAGA hate rallies as proof of his popularity when arguing he’s going to win reelection in a landslide.

If you’re promoting an album and your tour sells out every arena, congratulations. You have a hit album. Though a venue may have 14,000 seats, the cities they’re in are typically bigger. You also have to account for people traveling to see you rock out with your jock out. While you may sell a lot of T-Shirts, it doesn’t mean you could be elected president.

And if you only go into rooms where people fawn over you, you might get the impression that you’re beloved in all rooms and everyone thinks you’re a stable genius. That’s like believing you’re a special boy because your mom thinks so. Oh, and in case you’re a Republican, the strippers don’t actually like you either.

Donald Trump doesn’t just hire advisers. He hires yes people. That is, people who say “yes.” These people don’t just praise his policies, they run to the media to tell us Donald Trump is a genius, which is what White House Press Secretary, Stephanie Grisham, who never holds a press conference, did this week. After the former chief of staff, John Kelly, said he warned Trump that if he hired a “yes” man to replace him, that he’d be impeached. Grisham said to the media that Kelly was “ill-equipped to work with the genius of our great president.” This is why Donald Trump thinks he’s a genius and totally oblivious to the fact he’s a dumbass. By the way, it’s hard to argue against Kelly’s comments while you’re literally getting impeached.

There was a news story this week that scientists taught rats how to drive little, tiny rat cars because it eases their stress, which is something I’m sure we’ve all been concerned about. While these rats are figuring out how to drive cars, Donald Trump can’t close an umbrella. Yes, he’s a genius.

But Donald Trump holds these hate rallies where women wear shirts asking him to grab them by the vagina. They eat up every word he says. They cheer and praise him. They repeat his three-syllable chants (in case you’re a Republican, “lock her up,” and “build the wall” are each three syllables. I’ll let you figure out “space force” for yourself. What do you mean, “what’s a syllable?”).

If Trump only talks to his paid yes sycophants, only attends hate rallies, only watches Fox News, and only talks to Lindsey Graham, he may not get the impression that over half the country despises him and thinks he’s an asshole. Maybe he should have talked to Graham back when the South Carolina senator thought he was a racist.

When Fox News published a poll that over half of eligible voters believe he should be impeached, he tweeted that their pollsters suck. I guess it never occurred to him that the pollsters may be right.

So, when Donald Trump visited the World Series Sunday night, he was probably expecting to be greeted with cheers. It was the first time he went out since the killing of al-Baghdadi. He took Lindsey and Matt Gaetz with him, but not his youngest son, because you’d rather take sycophantic buttpoodles to the World Series than your 13-year-old son. You don’t have to imagine his surprise when he was greeted with boos and “lock him up” chants.

Some people were upset about this. Fox News’ Dana Perino must be as clueless as Trump because she said, “I never thought he would get booed. I thought Americans won’t do that, Americans would cheer.” Hey, Dana. Most Americans don’t like Nazis. Go figure.

On the same show, Capri Cafaro was upset. She said, “Everybody has their First Amendment right to express themselves however they want, but I would say this, regardless of whether or not you agree with President Trump or not he is the President of the United States and this is the World Series.”

I don’t have a problem with this “president” getting booed at the World Series. If anything, they did him a favor. We should let him know he’s despised and repulses people who aren’t troglodytes. But the biggest reason I don’t have a problem with it is that he’s not presidential. He’s conducted himself in a manner before crowds that should be beneath a president. But, Donald Trump is beneath the presidency. Way beneath it. While Carafo argues, “he is the President of the United States,” I argue that he doesn’t want to be everyone’s president.

Donald Trump conducts hate rallies where he encourages people to chant “lock her up” and “send them back.” He inspires and condones hate at his rallies. He has literally told his people to physically assault the people there to protest. He deserves all the respect one should give a poo-flinging monkey, who could still probably close an umbrella. Booing Trump could be our new national past time.

Here’s the thing. Donald Trump has been heckling America. He’s been booing America. So, America, feel free to boo right back. And while you’re at it, lock him up.

AL MAGA Daddy


cjones10302019

The killing of an international terrorist on the FBI’s most-wanted list would be a win for any president and an opportunity to be presidential. In moments of successes like this, as it was for President Obama with the death of Osama bin Laden or even a failure like the one Jimmy Carter suffered from a failed mission to rescue hostages from Tehran, presidents become presidential. With the killing of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Trump had a desperately needed win and he proceeded to mess it up even before the announcement.

Before the raid by American special ops, Trump messed up by not informing key members of Congress, citing that he can’t trust them not to leak. But, he informed Russia. In fact, he thanked Russia even though they didn’t have anything to do with the raid. Before he made the announcement, he tweeted a hint which gave the entire world a huge clue as to what had happened. From “Something very big has just happened!” you’d think had just killed a major terrorist or was bragging about using his pull-ups successfully all by himself for the first time.

Donald Trump could have just delivered the information but he turned it into editorializing, which amounted to preening. He claimed Baghdadi was “screaming, crying, and whimpering, “and he was scared out of his mind,” and he “died like a dog,” and “died like a coward.” While no one is going to mourn the death of this brutal terrorist, Trump threw away American honor and dignity with his childish taunts and insults, even if his claims are true. As Michael Leiter, who led the US National Counterterrorism Center from 2007 to 2011, told VOX, “Highlighting and repeating that language is not especially dignified for the United States. We should always take a higher moral ground, and talking about an individual’s death is not particularly productive. What the president should’ve spent more time on was highlighting ISIS’s atrocities, like the killing of the Jordanian pilot. That’s appropriate: It shows that ISIS wasn’t at war with the West, it was at war with all peoples who are civilized, including Muslims who don’t adhere to their extremely strict view of Sunni Islam.”

Trump claimed he couldn’t trust Democrats in Congress not to leak and inform ISIS an attack was coming, yet he may have revealed classified information during his braggadocious press conference. The biggest danger is that Trump may have tipped off future targets describing the information our nation had about Baghdadi’s compound, which teaches them how to avoid death and capture from future raids.

The mission was named after Kayla Mueller, a victim of the terrorist. Her mother praised Trump and said if “Obama had been as decisive as Trump,” her daughter might still be alive. But, as it turns out, the mission was delayed and complicated by Trump pulling our troops out of Syria. This mission was conducted from Iraq. The mission was made possible by intelligence provided by Kurdish allies, whom Donald Trump has abandoned and given Turkey the green light to slaughter.

Trump used the opportunity to praise his travel ban, despite there not being any ISIS attacks in the United States by anyone traveling from any of the nations on his travel-ban list.

Trump also claimed that nobody heard of Osama bin Laden before 9/11, yet he warned the country it needed to “take him out” in one of his crappy books he didn’t write, a year and a half before planes flew into the World Trade Center. He insinuated 9/11 may not have ever happened if the U.S. had listened to his advice, and complained that he doesn’t receive credit.

Uh, his book, The America We Deserve (gag), does mention bin Laden, but it doesn’t say anything about “taking him out.” And maybe Trump voters never heard of bin Laden before 9/11, but America was aware of him. He was in international news. He had committed major attacks against two U.S. embassies in Africa and on the U.S.S. Cole. There had been attempts to take him out in 1998, before Trump’s book was published. I’m mostly shocked that he didn’t plug that Trump Tower became the tallest building in New York City after 9/11, which he has done before.

Trump also attacked the intelligence community, saying, “I’ve dealt with some people that aren’t very intelligent, having to do with intel.” Never mind the fact that we learned of Baghdadi’s whereabouts from…wait for it…intelligence.

Trump also compared Baghdadi’s death to bin Laden’s, stating “his killing” was a bigger deal than Obama’s.

Obama took nine minutes to announce the killing of bin Laden. Trump took nearly an hour because he needed all that time to take credit. So naturally, in the past, Trump said Obama didn’t deserve any credit for the killing of bin Laden. He had tweeted, “Stop congratulating Obama for killing Bin Laden. The Navy Seals killed Bin Laden.” He actually tweeted about it multiple times over several months.

He said to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, “What’s he going to say, don’t get him? And he gets all this credit? It’s a lot of crap.” You can expect the same people who spent months, years even, trying to take credit away from Obama for bin Laden to heap it on Trump. Quite frankly, “it’s a lot of crap.”

Trump also posted an obviously-staged photo from the situation room. While the photo of Obama’s situation room looked authentic, with all the participants looking toward the monitor, the photo of Trump’s has everyone looking at the camera as though they’re posed at the table. I’m surprised a product placement wasn’t inserted for Trump Doral. As Raf Sanchez, middle-east correspondent for The Telegraph tweeted, “The Trump situation room photo looks quite a bit more self-conscious than the Obama one.”

Fortunately, a lot of people can see right through Trump. While thinking the world will be praising him, he actually faced a crowd, for what’s probably the last time, that wasn’t a MAGA hate rally. At the World Series Sunday night, Trump got booed and was greeted with chants of “lock him up.”

Boos are appropriate for the boo-hooer.

A Nationals Impeachment


cjones10182019

Washington, D.C. has not sent a baseball team to the World Series since 1933 (which they lost). In fact, the city was without a baseball team from 1971 to 2005 because their team, the Washington Senators, fled to Texas to become the Rangers. The Washington team that went to the series in 1933, also named the Senators, are now the Minnesota Twins. Today’s team going to the World Series, who may face the American League team Houston Astros who used to be in the National League, used to be the Montreal Expos. This is a lot more confusing than Trump’s impeachment because Trump committed the crime, admitted it, and he should be impeached.

By the way, Donald Trump has never thrown a first pitch as president. He refused an invite from the Nationals in his first year as prez, either because he would have been booed out of the stadium or because walking from home plate to the mound might land him in a trauma unit. Even FDR, who was in a wheelchair, threw out first pitches. He did it ten times. Hell, even Nixon threw out a first pitch. If Trump ever does throw out a first pitch, I expect him to take a golf cart to the mound.

I’m one of those people who roots for two teams. The Chicago Cubs (who have always been in Chicago and in the National League) is my team. But I was here to see the start of the Nationals franchise, have cheered for them when they haven’t been playing my Cubs, and I’ve been to several games. But, I don’t feel like I’m finally seeing my team go to the World Series after years of waiting because, again, the Cubs are my team. But I’m very happy for the Nats and I hope they win the series. I also hope they face the Yankees because that’ll make for a more exciting series and look much more dramatic in the record book years for now. Who doesn’t want to take down the Yankees? The Astros? Meh. The Nats just took down the team that’s won the second most World Series. Maybe they’ll get a shot at taking on the team that’s won the most.

It didn’t look like the Nats would even make the playoffs as they were twelve games behind in their division last May. But, baseball has a very long season. They made it to the playoffs as a wildcard where they beat the Milwaukee Brewers, who originally started in Seattle then moved to Milwaukee to replace the Braves who originally started in Boston and then landed in Atlanta. They then earned the right to play the number one seed Los Angeles Dodgers (who used to be in Brooklyn) who they beat three games to two. Then, they swept the St. Louis Cardinals, four games to none. The Nats weren’t supposed to be here, but baseball is a funny game. So is politics.

It looked like Trump wasn’t going to be impeached after the Mueller Report came out and the Justice Department twisted what was in it. Any momentum to remove this corrupt president faded. With the primary season approaching, Democrats thought it best to beat him and the Russians at the ballot box. At the very least, Donald Trump knew that working with foreign governments to win an election was wrong and illegal. That was repeated over and over throughout the Mueller investigation and the Trump team knew it too as they kept repeating the talking point “no collusion.” I mean, after two years of talking about it, the illegality of it was made clear, right?

The day after Mueller testified before Congress on his report, Donald Trump asked a foreign government to meddle in the next election. It’s like getting off on a technicality on a bank-robbing charge, so you celebrate by robbing a bank. He then hid the evidence. He used money approved by Congress to extort that foreign government to help his campaign. His administration tried to block a whistleblower report from reaching Congress. And then, Donald Trump admitted he asked a foreign government to help him and then publicly, he asked another one to help. Finally, Trump obstructed justice by denying subpoenas from Congress for documents and testimony from people in his administration. Despite all this, most Republicans claim he didn’t do anything wrong.

Democrats are not overturning an election by impeaching Donald Trump. I mean, not unless they replace him with Hillary Clinton. It’s like the argument that it’s a coup, but it can’t be a coup if Democrats replace him with Mike Pence. The election was fraudulent and Trump and his team worked to make it that way. Impeaching Trump, which is authorized by the United States Constitution, isn’t as outrageous as Russia attacking our nation by making Donald Trump president. But, if anyone is overturning an election, that person is Donald Trump for violating and betraying his oath of office. It’s not the Democratic Party or the media’s fault Donald Trump is a corrupt son of a bitch who’s used his entire time as president to divide the nation and advance his own personal agenda and enrich himself further.

Article Two, Second Four of the United States Constitution was written in preparation for a president such as Donald Trump. It says a president shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. The only missing in Article Two is a picture of Donald Trump.

I don’t know if the Nationals are going to win the World Series. I don’t know if Donald Trump will be removed from office. But I do know two things. The Washington Nationals are going to the World Series and Donald Trump is going to be impeached.

Both are well deserved.
