Sunday Clutter: Trump, Stephen Hawking, Boston Red Sox, Charles Barkley, M.A.S.H., the Eagles, and more

Hi everyone,

Welcome back!  Come on in, have a seat.  How are you?  Did you make it through Friday's storm without incident?  The Clutter Tree is always the big concern here during weather like that.  He clearly did not enjoy the high winds, but BDH and Little Buddha were cheering him on for the entire day, and he made it through without incident.  Phew!  You can overcome any obstacle when you've got those two in your corner.  Speaking of our dynamic duo, they just said that the coffee is ready.  Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter.

Donald Trump told Republican donors that he loves the recent power grab by China's President Xi Jinping, and thinks that the United States should follow suit.  According to a tape obtained by CNN, Trump said: 

"He's now president for life. President for life. No, he's great," Trump said. "And look, he was able to do that. I think it's great. Maybe we'll have to give that a shot some day."

That's not disturbing at all.  No need for concern here.

Let's check out the Great Pumpkin's latest press event, courtesy of SNL:

White House chief of staff John Kelly still won't be honest about how he handled the Rob Porter domestic violence scandal.  If you hang around Trump long enough, your grasp of the truth has to erode at a quick rate.

It appears that Robert Mueller's investigation is expanding beyond Russia.  His team has reportedly been talking to a representative of the United Arab Emirates to see if they've paid for influence with Trump. 

Former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore seems to be having trouble raising money to fight a lawsuit from a woman who claims Moore molested her when she was 14 years old.  Surely everything will work out if Moore just prays long enough.

Stephen Hawking says he knows what happened before the Big Bang.  The explanation went right over our heads, but you might enjoy it...and then you can drop us a note at [email protected] and explain what he said.

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz has a mild flexor strain in his left arm.  The injury forced him to leave his start early on Friday, but Pomeranz claims not to be concerned.  As we've mentioned before, there are concerns about all five members of Boston's starting rotation, and for Pomeranz, David Price, and  Eduardo Rodriguez, the question is about their durability.  Hopefully Pomeranz is right, and this is not a big deal, but the Sox should be thinking about their pitching depth, because it could be challenged this season.

The Boston Celtics had a chance to make a statement with a win against the red-hot Houston Rockets on Saturday.  The C's had the lead with about three minutes left, but they eventually lost to Houston 123-120.

Who here is watching the Oscars tonight?

Bruce Willis says there may be a Die Hard 6.  Is that a movie that needs to happen?  Can we vote on it?

Mark Wahlberg as the Six Billion Dollar Man?  No thank you.  Nooo, thank you.  We'd rather see Lee Majors return to the role of Steve Austin?  Wait, is Majors still alive?  Either way, we'd rather see him as Austin.  Hell, we'd rather see "Stone Cold" Steve Austin as Austin.

Whether you love Charles Barkley, hate him, or don't care, you have to give him and Kate McKinnon credit:  This is 100% commitment to one messed-up sketch:

We're sorry to hear that David Ogden Stiers died ysterday.  The actor was well-known  for his role as Major Charles Emerson Winchester III on the TV show M.A.S.H., which we used to watch all the time with Grandma and Grandpa Clutter.  Stiers was 75 years old.  Our condolences go out to his family, friends, and fans.

Okay kids, that's going to do it for now.  Let's have the Eagles close things out here with a live performance of, "Already Gone," for today's, "Song of the Day."


Thanks for stopping by, everyone.  It was great to see you, as always.  Enjoy the rest of your day, be good, and we'll meet back here again for more fun soon.  Until next time, that's today's Clearing out the Clutter, and we are outta here.
