Commander in Chief Forum …. “Last night …. What the heck was that? …. “!!


~~September 8, 2016~~ 


I was waiting for this event.

I had it penciled in my calendar since it was announced.

I didn’t know Matt Lauer was going to be the moderator.

As I watched, I thought … is it me?

Seems that I wasn’t the only one who found Lauer’s ‘peformace’ lacking.

Even lacking more than the presidential candidates.

Here’s a video from today’s ‘Morning Joe” show.

I agree in part and I disagree in part.

‘Donald Trump is held to lower standards.

Hillary Clinton is held to double standards.

Matt Lauer sucked!



~Matt Lauer Fields Storm of Criticism Over Clinton-Trump Forum~

It was a high-stakes political moment, far from the chummier confines of the “Today” show and, for Matt Lauer, NBC’s stalwart of the morning, a chance to prove his broadcasting mettle on the presidential stage.

The consensus afterward was not kind.

Charged with overseeing a live prime-time forum with Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton – widely seen as a dry run of sorts for the coming presidential debates – Mr. Lauer found himself besieged on Wednesday evening, September 7, by critics of all political stripes, who accused the anchor of unfairness, sloppiness and even sexism in his handling of the event.

The Commander in Chief Forum was an embarrassment, but still enough to disqualify Trump

The idea for the Commander in Chief forum seemed decent, but two things utterly wrecked the evening: the half-hour slice given each candidate was inadequate to discuss substantive issues; and Matt Lauer.

Most of that fault? 

Matt Lauer

Lauer started his interview by sandbagging Hillary Clinton, interrupting her first answer with a lengthy “question” about the email server that was both unrelated to the supposed topic of the evening, and weighted with built-in scorn up to and including the idea that Clinton’s non-crime was “disqualifying” of her candidacy. Before Hillary could complete her answer to this are-we-really-going-to-do-this zinger, Lauer interrupted her again. With another email question. Then he did it again.

Watching a replay of the affair, it’s not that Matt Lauer interrupted some of Hillary Clinton’s answers. It’s that he interrupted all of HIllary Clinton’s answers. Repeatedly, he leaped in mid-sentence, first to spew out ‘questions’ that were actually lengthy position statements allowing no obvious response, then to break in and remind Clinton that they were running out of time when she tried to beat Lauer’s words into an actual question. Lauer displayed a level of disrespect and antagonism to Hillary Clinton that wasn’t just unprofessional, it was punchable.

Even when Trump was producing a running stream of non-connected thoughts, Lauer sat back until Trump had come stumbling to a halt. He didn’t challenge Trump’s flat-out lies, and several times handed the Republican candidate open-ended questions with an intellectual challenge between “what’s your favorite color” and “how cool are puppies?” Lauer never hit Trump with anything remotely equivalent to emails – nothing about his taxes, his failed business deals, his 3,500 lawsuits, or the handy bribes that made some of those lawsuits go away.


Overall he treated Trump like a respected businessman, while addressing Clinton as if she was a PA assigned to warm up his coffee between floats in the Macy’s parade.

And still …

Without the much-scorned teleprompter that has kept Trump modestly on-track in recent speeches, what was revealed – again – was a man so utterly devoid of tact, truthfulness, or information that anyone watching should have seen enough to know that Donald Trump as president would be a catastrophe of dinosaur killer scale.

I don’t agree with all of their opinions.

Yet, they explain quite fairly, what happened at the ‘Forum’

To start the day …. “Adele Opens Up …. Today Show”!!


~~March 11, 2016~~ 


I’m going back in time.

I’m re-living the moments when I saw Adele in different facets besides songwriting and singing.

Always the singer. She can truly be an actor. Her talent is all encompassing.

She’s genuine, she’s real.

She could be the shopper next to you, she could be your best drinking buddy, she could be a good neighbor.

She’s really down to earth.

Her son, Angelo, activated another facet of her.

Her boyfriend Simon Konecki seems to be the love of her life.

The more I see about her, outside of her singing, the more I admire, enjoy and like her.

Kudos, Adele … in so many ways!



Adele’s comeback album “25” breaks US records

(Winter 2015)

Adele’s comeback album  “25″ sold a record-breaking 3.38 million copies in its first week on sale in the US, according to Nielsen Music data.

The British star notched up the largest single sales week for an album since Nielsen began monitoring sales in 1991.

25” released on 20 November also became the first album to sell more than three million copies in a week.

In Britain, “25” similarly broke records for the highest number of albums sold in a single week of the UK charts.

The album shifted more than 800,000 copies in its first week of release in the UK – more copies than the next 86 albums in the charts combined.

In the US, “25” is already the biggest selling album of 2015, surpassing the 1.8 million copies sold of Taylor Swift’s 1989.

(… and these numbers have increased with time … )

Adele, who has been out of the limelight since winning an Oscar for the Bond theme tune Skyfall in 2013, recently announced her first tour since 2011, playing in arenas across Europe from next February.

Her last tour ended prematurely due to the discovery of a hemorrhage on her vocal cord, which required surgery.
