Mayor Pete Buttigieg says the race comes down to him and Sen. Warren and their policy differences. Tony calls this a smart play by Buttigieg, as he thinks he can be the consensus candidate of the Democratic Party.
But, Tony warns, Hillary Clinton and Mike Bloomberg are in the wings, waiting for their chance to play savior of the party.
On FOX and Friends, Tony Katz spoke with Brian Kilmeade, Ainsley Earhardt and Ed Henry about the op-ed from TV celebrity Judge Judy Sheindlin. In her piece at USA Today, she pushed back on the hand out culture of today’s Democratic candidates for president and endorsed former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Mayor Bloomberg announced months ago that he will not be seeking the nomination. However, with more palpable unease with the current field, Bloomberg might find an opportunity to take on President Donald Trump in 2020.
Antonio Brown is a wide receiver in the NFL. He wanted out of Pittsburgh, and got his wish when he joined the Raiders. He has self-inflicted issues with his feet….and the Raiders waited. He didn’t want to change his helmet as per NFL guidelines, and fought the league about it….and the Raiders waited. Brown then called the Raiders GM a “cracker”….and coach John Gruden says Brown will play on Monday night.
But a released private phone conversation between Brown and Gruden, and an Instagram post by Brown saying, “Release Me” made it clear – Brown wanted out….and the Raiders said goodbye. Brown responds by saying, “I’m Free!”
‘Will and Grace’ was a TV show that aired about a decade and a half ago. It was based around the lives of four friends, two of whom were gay, living in New York. The show was funny; it was good, it made me laugh. NBC decided to bring it back, but this time their goal was to do as many seasons as they could bashing President Trump and his supporters. And bash they did, for three entire seasons. And it was as boring as can be.
Eric McCormack and Debra Messing play the title characters, Will and Grace. Now McCormack and Messing have both taken their roles as Trump bashers off the set and into the streets of Twitter.
There is a fundraiser in Beverly Hills, CA for Donald Trump, and McCormack and Messing would have nothing of the sort in their backyard. McCormack tweeted out to The Hollywood Reporter:
In the span of 72 hours, Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar went from being denied access into Israel to being shown as hating Israel so much that one of them, Rep. Tlaib, was willing to throw her own grandmother under the bus.
Tony Katz hosts Eat! Drink! Smoke! presented by Fanimation.com. Why didn’t Reps. Tlaib and Omar go with the rest of the Congressional delegation? Why did they accept funding from an organization that has vocally supported terrorism in Israel? And why did the media spin the facts – or simply fail to report them?
Chick-Fil-A now has mac and cheese. Tony, Fingers Malloy and April D. Gregory give the definitive review. They also reviewed the Bardstown Bourbon Company Phifer Pavitt Reserve Bourbon and the Diamond Crown Figurado #6 cigar.
Speaking of Chick-Fil-A, they rank highest in customer loyalty and emotional connection. Makes sense, but how did Taco Bell get into the top 5?
Eat! Drink! Smoke! is recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN.
Trusting The New York Times is no longer possible. They told us during the 2016 election that they were going to forego journalistic integrity because Donald Trump had to be defeated. Once Donald Trump won the election, they declared, “Alright! We are back to journalism now!”
Well, that didn’t last long (if it lasted at all.) The New York Times has now decided that they have talked about collusion all they possibly can. And with that talking point worn out – because it was proven to be a lie! – the Times has shifted to racism. As Byron York notes in the Washington Examiner: “New goal for New York Times: ‘Reframe’ American history, and target Trump, too”
Yes, at a “crisis townhall,” Times’ Executive Editor Dean Baquet declared the newsroom was going to shift from covering Trump and Russia to covering Trump and Racism:
We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.
