Democrats Vote Obama a Better President Than Washington in Landslide

One might assume that, when placed beside any one of America’s many modern presidents or statesmen, Founding Father and former President George Washington would stand undisputed as the superior national leader. According to the Monmouth University Polling Institute, however, that could not be further from the truth, at least for Democrats. In fact, the organization’s…

GREAT AGAIN: Nationals Become 2nd DC Sports Franchise to Win Title on Trump’s Watch

The Washington Nationals on Wednesday night defeated the Houston Astros to win the World Series and become the second Washington, D.C., sports franchise to win a title on President Donald J. Trump’s watch. The team’s victory marks yet another accomplishment for Trump that his predecessor, Barack H. Obama, was never able to achieve in his eight years of failed leadership.

The Nationals are taking home the Commissioner’s Trophy despite an ungrateful fanbase comprised almost entirely of wealthy lobbyists and bandwagon hipsters with little-to-no sports knowledge. The team might have ended the series sooner had their fans not callously booed President Trump during Game Five at Nationals Park, where the historically successful commander-in-chief was greeted by chants of “lock him up!” following his successful assassination of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The Nats went on to lose seven to one, before winning the final two games at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, a legitimate state with voting rights that supported Trump in the 2016 election.

Their stunning World Series victory means the Nationals are now the second D.C. sports franchise to win a title on Trump’s watch. The city’s NHL team, the Washington Capitals, won the Stanley Cup in 2018.

D.C. teams did not win a single title during the eight years of the failed Obama presidency. Additionally, golf legend Tiger Woods did not win a single major championship during Obama’s two terms in office, but ended his so-called “Obama drought” in dramatic fashion by winning the 2019 Masters.

A number of sports experts have documented what many have dubbed the “Obama curse.” NBA star rookie Zion Williamson, for example, suffered a freak injury when his shoe exploded on Obama’s watch in the opening minutes of a crucial Duke-UNC rivalry game. Earlier this year, Obama received a standing ovation in Canada during Game Two of the NBA finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors, and even though the American team went on to win that game, several of their star players suffered bizarre injuries that ultimately sunk their hopes of winning the title.

Nationals fans are rightfully celebrating their team’s improbable World Series victory, but at the end of the day, every American is a winner thanks to President Trump’s successful efforts to restore the country’s greatness and rid the earth of terrorist scum. There might come a day when Americans tire of all the winning, and the unprecedented economic success the president has engineered through a combination of policy genius and superhuman physical stamina. But today is not that day.

Nationals Lose After Fans Boo Historically Successful President and Terrorist Assassin

The Washington Nationals lost a third consecutive World Series home game on Sunday in front of a sellout crowd of lobbyists and political consultants, a defeat that all but obliterates the team’s hopes of lifting the Commissioner’s Trophy and bringing a sliver of joy to the dreary lives of Washington, D.C., residents.

After the visiting Houston Astros evened the series at two games apiece with a pair of wins at Nationals Park, many observers had expected the Nats to fare better in game five, not least because President Donald J. Trump would be in attendance. However, Nationals fans likely sealed their fate when they decided to boo and jeer the historically successful commander in chief who recently assassinated ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in Syria. Some fans even chanted “lock him up!” prior to the home team’s embarrassing 7-1 defeat.

Trump’s historically successful presidency has coincided with a resurgence in American dominance in the world of sports. Earlier this year, golf legend Tiger Woods ended his “Obama drought” by winning the Masters, his first major championship since 2008. The U.S. women’s soccer team won the World Cup in France after Trump tweeted his support.

Unfortunately, the Golden State Warriors suffered an embarrassing defeat to the Toronto Raptors of Canada in the 2019 NBA finals, but only after former president Barack Obama’s attendance at game two in Toronto resulted in a number of the Warriors’ star players suffering mysterious injuries that put the team at a disadvantage for the remainder of the series.

It is worth noting that Obama received a standing ovation in Canada, where he met with Prime Minister Justin “Blackface” Trudeau prior to the American team’s players suffering injuries on his watch. Collusion?

The “Obama curse” has threatened to derail the careers of many of America’s most promising athletes, including NBA rookie Zion Williamson, whose shoe exploded on Obama’s watch in the opening minutes of a Duke-UNC game.

As for the Nationals—who have failed to score more than a single run in any of the last three games—their chances of winning the World Series look exceedingly dim following the egregious display of disrespect for America’s president. The final two games of the series will be played in Texas, an actual U.S. state that voted overwhelmingly for Trump in the 2016 election.

More Than One-Fifth of Newsroom Employees Live in NYC, L.A., D.C.

More than one-fifth of all U.S. newsroom employees live in the liberal strongholds of New York City, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., according to a newly published report.

A Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data from 2013 to 2017 found that 22 percent of newsroom employees live in the three cities. New York (12 percent) had the greatest share of newsroom employees, followed by Los Angeles and Washington with 5 percent each.

That proportion was almost twice the 13 percent of all U.S. workers who call the three cities home. Just 7 percent of all workers live in New York, with only 4 percent living in Los Angeles and 2 percent living in Washington.

The share of newsroom workers in the three cities is slightly higher than it was between 2005 and 2009, when Pew found about 20 percent of them lived there.

All three cities are known for their strongly progressive bent. A Republican has not won New York City in a presidential election since 1924, or won Los Angeles County since 1984. No Republican has ever won Washington, D.C., in a presidential election.

According to Pew, only New York and Washington are home to a greater share of newsroom workers than workers overall. Given their significance in media and politics, those two cities are the broadcasting sites for every major show on cable and national network news.

Pew also found that 41 percent of newsroom employees who work in internet publishing live in the northeast, while just 18 percent of all workers live in the region overall. Thirty-seven percent of all workers live in the south, but it’s home to just 21 percent of newsroom employees who work in internet publishing.
