Leaders, Baseball Fans Still Simmering Over Astros Player's Racist Gesture



The Dodgers are back in Los Angeles following their three-game road trip against the Houston Astros, and fans are still simmering over one Astros player's racist gesture.

With the Boys in Blue back in town, many Dodger fans and California leaders are airing their anger over what they see as a weak punishment for Astros player Yuli Gurriel, who was seen pulling the sides of his eyes while apparently mouthing, "Chinito" - a Spanish slang term translating roughly to "little Chinese boy" - after hitting a home run off the Dodgers' Yu Darvish, who is Japanese.
...
Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred suspended Gurriel for five games without pay, but the punishment does not start until next season, with Gurriel allowed to continue playing in the World Series.

"We expected Major League Baseball to really step up and have consequences and accountability, and that didn't happen," said California Assemblyman Rob Bonta, who believes Gurriel should have been suspended for Game 5.

Wow, a man in the US Senate hall just threw Russian flags at Trump and accused him of "Treason!"

The reporters there are all saying what an unprecedented security breakdown this is.

A very auspicious start to Trump's lunch with McConnell.

"You prefer soldiers who don't get captured. Do you also prefer soldiers who don't get killed?"

That is the gist of what Lawrence O'Donnell just said to Trump.

It brought my husband, a son of a vet, to tears.

Trump's Tweet Over Wasting Time Negotiating With North Korea Apparently Sent From Golf Course

Photo snapped of president Sunday at 10:40 a.m. at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ:



President Trump was apparently golfing Sunday on his course in Bedminster when he sent a tweet taunting North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un as "Little Rocket Man" and announcing that he found negotiating with him to avoid nuclear war was "wasting" time.

According to his timeline on Twitter, Trump sent the tweets at 10:30 and 10:31 Sunday morning.

Minutes later, at 10:40 Sunday morning, a passerby driving on a road outside Trump's Bedminster golf course snapped a photograph of Trump swinging away on what appeared to be the 4th tee and sent the image to Patch.
...
During the 2016 campaign, and before, Trump repeatedly criticized President Obama for golfing.

"I just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off," Trump said last year.
