I noticed that regardless of the NJ affordability crisis, regardless of the massive effort underway to help those impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Maria, people still want to talk sports & social controversy. And I think that's a good thing.

Newsflash...people can have a discussion about sports, the national anthem, and the lack of respect to our nation displayed by so many NFL players all while concerned and acting to help those in need.

I'm so sick of people attacking President Trump for tweeting as if he's doing nothing to help. The response to not one, not two, but THREE natural disasters inside a few weeks hitting three separate areas of the United States would push any administration to the limit. The response has been calm, wide reaching and effective.

So you can tweet and yell all you want about the President's distraction on twitter but the bottom line is things are getting done. For me and you, back to the arrogant, whiner millionaires in the NFL who think they're victims...more tomorrow.
