Readers know I’m not so happy with Klay Thompson.  Common sense dictates wearing a f***ing Dodger hat to a Giants game is simply out-of-bounds.  The Cavs have had the Warriors number ever since.

But, over the weekend, I spoke to an in-the-know Warriors exec.  I, of course, voiced my Klay Thompson outrage… and he said, “you know, he got taken to task by the other players pretty good for that one.”

That is not the same thing as an apology.  But it’s nice to know the Warrior players (unlike Warrior management) care enough about their SF Giant fanbase to police their own on this one.

And, somehow, the fog that Thompson cast upon the Warriors magically started to lift:  Warriors 126 Cavs 91.

Still waiting for an apology… most likely will be waiting forever… but it’s a start.

I like celebrity gossip.  But I don’t like celebrities that are knuckleheads and waste my time… I simply don’t listen or read anything about them.  I “vote” by turning them off.

Kanye West is a good example.  West doesn’t have any talent in my opinion… nor does he have anything cogent to say.  And whether you like or dislike Taylor Swift, West was simply a bully to the young girl several years back at the Grammys.  Therefore, I choose to live a “Kanye West-free” life.

Meryl Streep — probably THE MOST IMPORTANT ACTRESS OF OUR TIME — tee’d off on President-Elect Trump at the Golden Globes the other night.

Even if biased, she did so professionally… tastefully… and effectively.

All the news headlines the next day were about Trump’s tweets in response.

Knowing (dreading?) what I’d see, I almost choose not to look at these stories…

… and then it hit me smack in the face that I — literally — almost relegated the future President of the United States of America to buffoon status!

How can you ignore the President of the United States of America?  You can’t.

So I looked at what he wrote.

It was worse than I could even imagine.

Will someone tell Trump that HE WON… HE’S PRESIDENT… and he doesn’t have to keep acting like an idiot?

He could have taken the high road, something like:

          “I apologize to Ms. Streep if there are things I am doing that she may not agree with.  It is certainly her right as an American citizen to voice her concerns.  She is a wonderful actress.  I only hope at the end of my term America will be better off than it is today and that history will remember me similarly.  I appreciate being given a chance.”

THAT would have blown people away… because THAT is the REASONABLE response from a person that doesn’t have to immaturely squabble and bicker… because THAT person already occupies THE HIGHEST SEAT IN THE LAND.

You’re already President, President-Elect Trump, PLEASE START ACTING LIKE IT!
