The baby formula and feral pig edition of The Month in Review

The baby formula and feral pig edition of The Month in Review

When you looked back on some of the ridiculous behavior in the first quarter of the year, you would think it couldn’t get worse. Then came the month of May. Take a look.

In celebrity violence, comedian Dave Chapelle was attacked while on stage during a performance. Chris Rock’s snarky response to this: “Was that Will Smith?” Then, before a baseball game against San Francisco, Cincinnati outfielder Tommy Phan slapped Giant player Joc Pedersen because of a dispute over a high-stake Fantasy Football league. It looks like 2022 will be the year of the slap….and we still have seven months to go.

One of the month’s biggest stories is the shortage of baby formula. Naturally, Fox News commentators felt a need to chime in with their misguided opinions lies.

Sean Hannity: “Look at that. Pallets and pallets of baby formula for illegal immigrants and their families.” Ummmm….Sean…it wasn’t baby formula in those pallets and you knew it. Liar, liar, pants on fire.

Jesse Waters: “The Biden administration is feeding illegal babies.” Hmmm…what’s an illegal baby?

The formula shortage is bad enough without lies making it worse. Plus, does Fox News really want any babies to starve? How compassionate of them.

Everyone occasionally says things they wish they could take back. Most of us are only embarrassed in front of family and friends. But when you’re in public life, it sticks with you. Here are some doozies and head shakers:

Golf legend Greg Norman is the face of a new golf league that is bankrolled by the Saudis. Yep, the same people who murdered and dismembered journalist Jamal Khashoggi, When questioned about this, Norman responded with “We all make mistakes.”

Women’s reproductive health has been a hot topic. Louisiana has an extremely high rate of pregnancy-related deaths. One of their senators, Bill Cassidy explained what he felt was the reason for this: “If you correct our population for race, we’re not as much of an outlier as it otherwise appears.”

We aren’t done with Senator Bill. Obviously, guns have been the biggest topic since last week. The murders of nineteen fourth-grade children and two teachers have rocked the nation to its core. Since then we’ve been hearing a multitude of reasons from Republicans as to why more regulations on guns, specifically assault guns, are not needed. Cassidy left most of us speechless with this bizarre explanation: “Well, if you talk to the people that own it, killing feral pigs in the middle of Louisiana, they wonder why would you take it away from them? I’m law-abiding, I’ve never done anything, I use it to kill feral pigs. The action of a criminal deprives me of my right.”  

In Chicago, we’ve had our share of crime and violence. In response, there is now a curfew of 10 pm that applies to ages seventeen and under. Alderman Jason Ervin had this response to the curfew: “Nothing is open after ten but legs and liquor stores.”

These guys should have checked out Abe Lincoln before spouting their crap. “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

Finally, again in Chicago, Alderman Michael Scott resigned his position on the city council. It was believed that he did this so Mayor Lori Lightfoot could choose his replacement. I think it was because he decided to move to Colorado to be with Holly. At least that’s what she said…..

That’s the news for May. I can only imagine what June will bring.

Every five years or so I decide to update this section. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for close to ten years. The last time I did this I was close to sixty years old. Now I’m just a few months away from the big 7-ZERO. Scary AF!!! I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing an update when I hit 80, but you never know. But until then, lets just be grateful.
