When Mike (Sports Pope) Francesa returns to his balcony Tuesday afternoon, and swears his retirement tour never really happened, his loyal base, the unwashed masses, will believe him. They will believe his cockamamie excuse about why he came out of “retirement.” They will believe him when he says he knew, “before anyone else,” that Sam Darnold would fall to the Jets at three. And they will believe him when he says he did Chris Carlin, Maggie Gray and Bart Scott a “favor” by convincing Entercom (it owns FAN) boss David Field to kick them to the gutter and prematurely pull the plug after one CMB ratings book. Francesa then will take shots at reporters “who always get it wrong,” especially when it comes to his business (By the way: Francesa’s salary was “cut” from about $3 million per to $1.5 million per year, according to Hudson Street Stoolies). Francesa won’t use the term “fake news” but you might … [Read more...] about Mike Francesa, taking a page out of the Donald Trump playbook, will be judged by the ratings in his WFAN return

President Donald Trump gushed about Jared Kushner on Friday when asked if he would grant him a reprieve from Chief of Staff John Kelly‘s crackdown on staffers with interim White House security clearance. Ever since the Rob Porter scandal broke weeks ago, there has been a great deal of renewed intrigue about how many people, including Kushner, are working in the White House fully-realized complete security clearance. The most recent reports on this development suggest that Kushner not only failed to note some of his foreign contacts on personal disclosure forms, but he is also dealing with a lot of debt and locking horns with Kelly over the possibility of losing his clearance.

I’m not here to pit the moral stain of the detention facility, which has come to be known for its human rights abuses, against the potential of a terror attack on our country. I … [Read more...] about Why The Hell Did Republicans Cheer When Trump Said He Would Keep Gitmo Open?
