Hopefully the Seahawks bring back the silver helmets.
A two hour walkthrough of every new feature something to iOS 15.
First there’s this:
Little by little, we learn more about Donald Trump’s schemes and lies during the coronavirus pandemic. A few days ago, we found out from excerpts of a new book—Nightmare Scenario: Inside the Trump Administration’s Response to the Pandemic That Changed History—that Trump proposed to quarantine sick Americans at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, so they wouldn’t count as U.S. infections.
Then once he caught the virus itself:
Trump pretends he caught the virus because it was inescapable. In reality, he caught it because he sabotaged mask use and social distancing, endangering everyone around him. He didn’t just hold big campaign rallies. He told aides to remove their masks at the White House.
This guy willingly endangered those around him. How anyone still thinks this guy cares about common people is beyond me. He only cares about his own image, something that almost killed him. There’s no overstating that.
Chauvin faced up to 40 years for his second-degree unintentional murder conviction. He was also convicted of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. 22.5 years for all of that is a relative slap on the wrist.
RIP Gift of Gab. Here’s some of his work.
