Transparent Tweeter Meter

Sean Spicer says our Tweeter-in-Chief has a “direct line to the American people.”

So, in an effort to tap that wire,  The Atlantic opened a Tweet Tracker. Cute, but I would have called it a Tweet Twacker. As you’d expect, its purpose is to track Trump’s Tweets.  The Tweet Tracker breaks down each presidential  tweet into “The Prompt,” “The Context,” and the “The Response.”

Obama Wall Street Fat Cats Speech

Barack is back. He will give a speech to the Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald in September. HIs fee? $400,000. The same amount as his annual salary as president.

President Obama had harsh words (at no extra charge) for Wall Street bankers in 2009. He called them “fat cats who don’t get it.”

Elizabeth Warren isn’t happy.

 

Putin’s Super Bowl Ring

Putin's Super Bowl Ring

A trip to the White House is the elite athlete equivalent of everyone getting a trophy.

The New England Patriots made their regular trek last week. They gave President Trump another jersey. Jason Gray, in the WSJ (a subscription is required but try clicking the Google link), says he’ll never wear it unless he gets a job at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Some players didn’t make the trip, including Tom Brady. Also, on the dark side, former star receiver Aaron Hernandez hung himself in prison that morning. He had just been cleared of two murder charges but was serving a life term for another.

But team owner Robert Craft showed up. He claims Vladimir Putin stole his Super Bowl ring in 2013.

United Leggings

United Airlines created a social media uproar when it kicked two teenage girls off a flight for wearing leggings. Turns out you can wear all the leggings you want.  Even if you’re Caitlyn Jenner. The girls were subject to a dress code because they were flying free on an employee pass.

Elon Musk Moon

Was bored with Trump and Russians when I came upon this piece in the Telegraph. It’s about the private space race. Elon Musk is the owner of Space X. His company plans to send tourists to the moon in 2018. His other company is Tesla.

He’ll be competing for the $20 million Google Lunar X prize. The competition includes a team featuring an Audi lunar rover.
