Former FBI director James Comey testified in front of the Senate on Thursday and, well, I’ve almost exceeded my personally imposed limitation on straying outside sports so I’m gonna send you over to CBSNews.com for more coverage on that. We bring this up here because there was a baseball reference!
Senator John McCain was some combination of questioned, mocked and/or criticized for his line of questioning to Comey, and he felt the need to release a statement afterward:
The main part we care about: “Maybe going forward I shouldn’t stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games.”
The Diamondbacks played the Padres on Wednesday night. With McCain in D.C., that game would have started at 9:40 p.m. for the senator and it ended at around 1:30 a.m.
John McCain was almost our president. Just a reminder that the old man who appeared to have taken a nap in the room where the Comey hearing was taken place and was woken up to find out that not only was he in the middle of the biggest hearing of the decade but he was required to ask some questions.
In his defense, west coast games are a bitch to watch. I try to write weekly MLB Power Rankings [1.they come out like, once a month instead..]and it’s borderline impossible to watch the Colorado Rockies play at Los Angeles without falling asleep. Luckily my only job is to write jokes and not find out if our president belongs in to Vladimir Putin.
Again just a reminder, McCain and Sarah Palin almost ran this country.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you thought John McCain was being a complete weirdo at the James Comey hearing. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
