I’m another one of her number 1 fans!! … she helps me make it through the dark days of this maddening ‘presidency’ … “Prior to TikTok ubiquity, Cooper, who’s Jamaican American, was a little-known stand-up and a Google employee regarded around the office as a consensus builder. “I would just repeat what other people said and come to an agreement,” she says. “I didn’t want to rock the boat.”
Yohana Desta (Vanity Fair) reviews Jamaican-American writer-comedian Sarah Cooper, explaining that “TikTok’s favorite mimic knows the key to spoofing the president: Just let him speak for himself.” [And here’s a shout-out to my childhood pal Valerie Storfer, who first made me aware of this gifted comedian, providing many a belly-laugh in these difficult times.]
“My husband has to hear Donald Trump’s voice over and over again,” says Sarah Cooper. “I think he’s probably going to jump out the window at some point.”
The writer-comedian occupies an unusual place in our culture: Many of her most ardent fans have never heard her talk. This spring, Cooper started going viral on TikTok and Twitter for her virtuoso Trump lip syncs, satirizing his tackiest and most ludicrous sound bites, such as when he compared himself to Abraham Lincoln or swore he never hid in a bunker. Her acting is as slyly…

Indeed … It would have been insulting to hear from the “Fool on the Hill”!! … “the incumbent (squatter) in the White House is irrelevant in this case. More relevant are the words of former President Barack Obama who wrote a beautifully touching tribute to Mr. Lewis, and so I share President Obama’s words with you today … “
The incumbent in the White House chose not to honour the late John Lewis as he lay in state in the U.S. Capitol, but that incumbent is irrelevant in this case. More relevant are the words of former President Barack Obama who wrote a beautifully touching tribute to Mr. Lewis, and so I share President Obama’s words with you today …
My Statement on the Passing of Rep. John Lewis
Dad, husband, President, citizen.
America is a constant work in progress. What gives each new generation purpose is to take up the unfinished work of the last and carry it further — to speak out for what’s right, to challenge an unjust status quo, and to imagine a better world.
John Lewis — one of the original Freedom Riders, chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, the youngest speaker at the March on Washington, leader of…

THIS WAS A SIGHT TO WATCH!! … beyond satisfying!! It made me quite proud!! … “In ten very satisfying minutes yesterday, New York representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) wiped the House floor clean with Tea Party Republican Ted Yoho. Ocasio-Cortez’s response to the Florida representative’s recent misogynistic comments (and his subsequent non-apology) was much more than a liberal “lesson in decency.”
Many thanks to Peter Jordens for gathering articles related to the recent floor speech by New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in response to Rep. Ted Yoho’s sexist attack and non-apology. Here are excerpts from Hadas Their’s “AOC’s anti-sexism speech yesterday was a triumph” (see full article at Jacobin Magazine).[See more links to six related articles below.]
In ten very satisfying minutes yesterday, New York representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) wiped the House floor clean with Tea Party Republican Ted Yoho. Ocasio-Cortez’s response to the Florida representative’s recent misogynistic comments (and his subsequent non-apology) was much more than a liberal “lesson in decency.” It was a blistering, eloquent indictment of an entire edifice of societal chauvinism and workplace harassment in the United States — and proof, once again, of the benefit of having democratic socialists in office.
Earlier this week, Yoho — who recently voted against making…

NOBODY LIKES TRUMP
He finally realized it … maybe not!! Yet, the ‘Whiny Bitch’ that is squatting in the Oval had some sort of demented epiphany yesterday at his press conference (July 28).
He was winning about Dr. Fauci’s ‘higher ratings’ …
“Why don’t I have higher ratings?”
This awesome video says quite a bit.
Here are some of the reasons!!
MeidasTouch.com is a new political action committee that is the brainchild of three brothers who believe that they have hit on a formula for drawing attention:
Using Donald Trump’s words against him, or those of his family.
“There is a thematic piece that goes throughout the videos – we use real pictures and real imagery and juxtapose them with their words,” said Ben Meiselas, a partner at Geragos & Geragos who represented Colin Kaepernick’s lawsuit and settlement with the NFL.
Also spearheading the videos are his brother Brett, who served as head of digital post-production on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Jordan, who works in marketing and advertising in New York.

Trump says nobody likes him. And he’s right.

***IN A NUTSHELL, literally!! Here’s the summary: “Trump retweeted a video of Dr. Stella Immanuel, a Houston doctor from Nigeria who was part of the “White Coat Summit,” a gathering of a few doctors who call themselves America’s Frontline Doctors and dispute the medical consensus on the coronavirus.” … please, read full post!!
Yesterday, during his bogus coronavirus hearings that are actually replacements for his hater rallies, Donald Trump wondered out loud why Dr. Anthony Fauci is more popular than he is. For his answer, maybe he should consult with Dr. Demon Sperm.
Donald Trump pointed out they’re a part of the same team and administration, yet Fauci has better ratings. For starters, they’re a part of the same team but Donald Trump didn’t hire Dr. Fauci. Ronald Reagan did. And despite being part of the same team, Donald Trump has engaged and engineered a smear campaign against the good doctor. As to why their approvals are in different places, Fauci has been honest and direct with Americans. In contrast, Donald Trump ignored the virus, downplayed it, politicized it, and spread lies while it has killed nearly 150,000 Americans and ruined the economy. And finally, a great reason Donald Trump’s numbers are so…

Ricky Martin, as a point of personal privilege, in my mind, can do no wrong. I have followed this amazing Puerto Rican iconic performer since his early years in ‘Menudo” … die hard fan, still a groupie (in my mind)!
Here’s his most recent collaboration. This time with Carla Morrison … this was done during the quarantine time. He had been dropping hints on his Instagram account.
I found it today!!
Hope you enjoy a bit of Spanish sensuality and charm.
Carla Patricia Morrison Flores (Tecate, Baja California, 19 July 1986), known professionally as Carla Morrison, is a Mexican indie-pop singer and composer. She has won two Latin Grammys for her album, Déjenme llorar, which has also been certified Gold in Mexico.
In a pre-taped clip, Martin and Morrison separately perform their vocals for “Recuerdo” (English: “Memory”), singing of the aching longing for a lost love: “I feel your lips in the summer nights/There they are, taking care of me in my loneliness/But sometimes they want to kill me.”
~~Premiered July 23, 2020~~
Produced by Alejandro Jimenez, the track comes from Pausa, Martin’s new quarantine-themed project.

BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER
We are all going through our own personal struggles. That’s the way of life. We keep going, one step at a time, one day at a time.
The daily struggle is part of our destiny.
