Deirdre's Corner

Don't forget to catch Deirdre on Blonde on Blonde, Wednesdays at 7:35am and Psychos, Thursday at 7:35am on Imus in the Morning! 

 


Are We There Yet? By Deirdre Imus - The saying goes that with little kids you take trips, not vacations. A vacation is relaxing; a getaway involving children is usually anything but. Taking a trip therefore requires acknowledging that it’s no longer about what the adults want to do (occupy a lounge chair on a beach for three days straight, stroll through a museum, window-shop in Paris), but must include activities geared toward youngsters.  Read more...

 Celebrating 15 Years Protecting Children's Health & the Environment

 The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center®  - When you are among the first voices to speak out on an issue, it’s difficult to know if anyone is listening. When I founded The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® at Hackensack University Medical Center fifteen years ago, concern about our children's health being impacted by toxic exposures in the environment was not the hot button, trendy issue it is today.  Read more...

 

Deirdre's Dish Pick

 

Ranch Tacos - Recipe by Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys -- I recommend using all organic non GMO ingredients.  Seitan is sometimes called wheat meat because it’s made from gluten, which is the protein component of wheat with the starch removed.  There are recipes for making it from scratch, which is pretty labor-intensive, but luckily you can also buy it ready-made at most health food stores.  We love these meaty and cheesy tacos.

If you have a fond memory from your childhood about some of the dishes we post please click here to contact us, we would love to hear your story.

If you have a Healthy Recipe that you enjoy and would like to see others indulge in, please share it with us: DImusCenter@HackensackUMC.org - You may have your recipe posted live on my Recipe Page! 

Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

The Imus Ranch Foundation

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

Warner's Sports Corner

Ibaka Shipped to Magic; Oladipo, 2 Others to OKC - The Orlando Magic acquired forward Serge Ibaka in a multiplayer trade Thursday night with the Oklahoma City Thunder.  The Thunder received guard Victor Oladipo, forward Ersan Ilyasova and the rights to power forward Domantas Sabonis, who was taken with the 11th pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night.
 
Novak Djokovic Could Face Roger Federer in Wimbledon Semifinals - Djokovic could face Federer in the semifinals as he bids for a fifth consecutive major title and the third leg of a calendar year Grand Slam.
 
Draft shocker: Bucks Pick Thon Maker at No. 10 - Once the most intriguing prospect in the high school Class of 2016, Thon Maker wasn't even considered a first-round pick in the latest round of mock drafts, so his selection at No. 10 overall came as shock to some.
Lincecum Struggles in Second Start for Angels - Lincecum lasted just three innings against the Oakland Athletics on Thursday. The 32-year-old surrendered four runs on seven hits during the 5-4 loss. He walked two and struck out two in the outing.

    Duck Season? Rabbit Season?

    6:05:00 A.M. – If you’re reading this, chances are you’re not one of the three people who won last night’s Powerball drawing.

    WHAT YOUR TICKET SHOULD’VE SAID

    6:15:30 A.M.  – Connell reports that Ted Cruz has a ‘celebrity’ supporter.  Phil Robertson, the Homophobic Duck Dynasty Patriarch.  This leads the I-Man to comment about the whole idea of Duck Calls and Duck hunting.  He maintains that, it’s basically, “You against a duck”.  It doesn’t seem to him that you would need to use a Duck Call to make a duck think he’s getting laid, or sit in a duck blind wearing a camouflage jumpsuit, in order to trick the duck into flying towards you so you can shoot it.  Which does make sense when you consider the Hunter and the Duck’s respective positions on the food chain. 

    THE SCHMUCK DYNASTY

    WATCH YOUR BACK, PHIL.  THERE’S A LOT OF IRATE DUCKS OUT THERE LOOKING FOR REVENGE.

    6:20:40 A.M.  – Knicks head coach Derek Fisher, discussing last night’s loss to the Brooklyn Nets, calling it a ‘Road Game’.  Road?  How far did they have to go?  A mile and a half? 

    THEY COULD’VE TAKEN THE 2 TRAIN.

    6:40:27 A.M.    Tavis Smiley is the guest.  He’s on to discuss his book, DEATH OF A KING, which recounts the last year of Martin Luther King from April 4th 1967 until his assassination in Memphis on April 4th, 1968.  It’s a fascinating account, one of the revelations in the book is that Dr. King was considered ‘Persona Non Grata’ for his comments about the Vietnam War and America’s culture of violence.  Tavis mentions Dr. King could not get a book deal after that, and, sadly, was completely broke at the time of his death. 

    THE UNTOLD STORY.

    7:05:10 A.M. – “The extent of my attention span is SnapChat” says the I-Man, using the Social Networking App that allows you to send a captioned photo or video to a friend, and after they view it, it disappears from the screen.  Which, if the Boss was going to send naked Selfies, would be a very welcome feature, however, even a brief look at the image would result in it being burned in your mind forever. 

    SOME THINGS ARE BETTER LEFT UNSEEN

    7:17:34 A.M. – Imus relates a story about the various canines who share the Ranch house with he, Deirdre and Wyatt.  Apparently, Deirdre will call Virgil “A Fu@king A-Hole.”   Um…how can he be sure she’s not talking to him? 

    “HEY, SWEETHEART…LEMME ASK YOU SOMETHING…WHO YOU CALLING A FU@KING A-HOLE?  I’LL PEE ON YOUR BED.  AND YOU’LL BLAME IT ON HIM”

    7:39:16 A.M. PSYCHOS with Deirdre, Alan Colmes, Bernie and Curtis Sliwa.   The D-Woman is incensed by Doctors who don’t tell the truth…lying f@cking doctors.  Saying women can have an occasional drink while they’re pregnant.  “EVER HEAR OF FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME?” she rhetorically asks the Hippocratic Hypocrites, who must think it refers to an alcoholic who spends a lot of time in the Fetal Position.

    THIS IS A DIFFERENT KIND OF FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME

    Alan, as you might guess, states that the relationship with Iran brokered by Secretary of State John Kerry is responsible for the captured U.S. Sailors being released so promptly.  He accuses the Republicans wanting to go to war over the incident…and Bernie agrees with him.  This is the first sign of the impending Apocalypse.  To be followed by forty years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanoes, the dead rising from the grave, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together…MASS HYSTERIA.

    A LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS’ NAME

    Curtis is upset with Mayor Bolshevik Bill De Blasio, who’s claimed that the city is ‘Safer than Ever’, even after the recent violent assault of a young woman by 5 teenage boys.  He then goes on a rant that, we’re not sure even HE is following. 

    WE HOPE THAT CURTIS GETS TAPPED TO ENDORSE ANOTHER PRODUCT:  VALIUM

    …and Bernie is upset with Governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, for taking cheap shots at Trump.  Because he’s in the tank for Trump.  Like SERIOUSLY deep deep deep in the tank.

    BERNIE IS SO EXCITED AT THE TRUMP RALLY A LITTLE BIT OF PEE CAME OUT.

    8:15:11 A.M. – Imus relates that, when watching television, he has such a difficult time hearing what everyone is saying  onscreen, he has to turn the volume up until the windows rattle.

    THE I-MAN WATCHES ANGLERS WEIGH FISH.  AND HE NEEDS TO KNOW WHO CAUGHT THE BIGGEST ONE. 

    8:40:43 A.M. – Songwriter, and partner of the late Eddie Rabbit, Even Stevens is on to promote his new book SOMEDAY I’M GONNA RENT THIS TOWN.  He and the I-Man reminisce about the music business in the 70’s…well, Even does…this is all new to Imus. 

    EVEN STEVENS AND ONE OF HIS #1 HITS

    Go Vegan

    6:05:00 A.M. – Hump Day.  A national holiday in Notre Dame.  Ring the bell.  School’s in.

    HE HAD A HUNCH TODAY WOULD BE SPECIAL

    6:15:30 A.M.  – The I-Man on Greta Van Susteren:  “She emerged from the ooze of the O.J. trial.”

    O.J IS IN THERE, SOMEWHERE.

    6:23:46 A.M. Warner reports that Patriots’ Head Coach Bill Belichick sported a black eye at a recent press conference. 

    WE THINK BILL’S JUST TRYING OUT A NEW SHADE OF EYE SHADOW

    6:40:08 A.M. –  Columnist for The National Journal, and Contributing Editor at Newsweek, Stuart Taylor, Jr. phones in. (We suppose Bernie just couldn’t get it done and book Stuart Taylor Sr.)   He and the I-Man discuss the Supreme Court Case about non-union, public-sector workers who must pay union fees for representation in collective bargaining.  The focus was on teachers, and, in Mr. Taylor Junior’s opinion, that’s the reason why our Public Education System is in such a mess.    We’re more worried about the other public workers.  We can deal with stupid people…but we don’t want any Non-Union Garbage Men copping an attitude. 

    JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG MIGHT HAVE TO RECUSE HERSELF AS SHE’S KNOWN AS A STAUNCH SUPPORTER OF UNIONS

    7:05:10 A.M. – The I-Man says he has had to reprimand Lis.  “Whenever she’s on O’Reilly, she sits there like she has a rodent in her shorts.”   Whose rodent?  O’Reilly’s?

    WE CAN’T BLAME LIS.  IF WE HAD KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE SITTING NEXT TO US, WE’D BE A MITE FIDGETY IN OUR BRITCHES TOO

    7:12:24 A.M.  Earlier in the morning, The Boss took umbrage with President Obama’s pithy turn of the phrase ‘From Boston to Austin’ at the State of The Union address last night, lamenting that the poor folk in New Mexico and Arizona were being left out.  He has just learned that it was only PART of the phrase.  The whole line was actually “From Boston to Austin to Silicon Valley”.   Of course, that leaves out Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, Guam and the other U.S. Territories, but, as Donald Trump might allege:  ‘The President lacks energy…he’s lazy.’

    NOT SO FAST THERE, HECTOR…YOU WEREN’T EVEN MENTIONED

    7:15:30 A.M.  The I-Man says tells us about a bunch of New Jersey restaurant workers who believed they won the Billion Dollar Powerball the other day, but, unfortunately, didn’t realize they had read off the wrong day’s winning numbers.

    NOT SO FAST THERE, LUIS.  YOU’RE LOOKING AT WEDNESDAY’S TICKET

    7:41:16 A.M. BLONDE ON BLONDE, or, as we like to call it: WHO LOST A GERBIL?  (You know, because of Lis’ twitching in her seat on O’Reilly)  Since she’s not jerking around this morning, we assume the rodent has escaped. 

    “FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST, THANK GOD ALMIGHT, I’M FREE OF THAT ASS!”

    The first topic is about the ‘Bionic Penis’ that’s been in the news lately… (not the ones that currently sit in the top drawer of every lonely woman’s nightstand…this one is attached to a man…and, we assume, doesn’t require batteries).  The I-Man asks Rob, who broke the story a few days ago, how big the Mechanical Member is.  “Eight inches” comes the reply from Lis:  “WOW!”  We’re not sure what Lis is measuring this one against…but it’s clear that’s the Goldilocks number for her:  ‘Not too big, not too small…just right.’  Either that, or she’s used to men who are hung like salmon.

    WE CAN BUILD IT.  WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY. 

    YOU CAN FIND A HEATHKIT ONLINE

    7:43:45 A.M. – The I-Man then segues into a related topic, ‘The Homeless in the Cold’  (Related in that, cold causes shrinkage) Deirdre says that  they need to help those that are mentally ill make the decision to leave the streets.  Which is hard to do, because those subway gratings are cozy!

    NOTHING LIKE THE WARM, PUNGENT AROMA EMANATING FROM A HOBO’S ASS TO MAKE YOU GLAD YOU LIVE IN NEW YORK

    7:44:13 A.M. – Def Jam mogul Russell Simmons will be the 8:30 guest, and he’s got a new book The Happy Vegan , which leads Imus to ask the ladies what the difference is between Vegans and Vegetarians.  Deirdre says that both are plant-based diets, but Vegans eschew the consumption of ANYTHING coming from an animal.  Milk, eggs, cheese.  We maintain that the difference is that Vegans are easier to beat up because they’re weak from the lack of protein.

    WE DIDN’T TOUCH HIM.  HE JUST OPENED HIS CAR DOOR, AND THE EXERTION ALONE MADE HIM FAINT

    8:08:16 A.M. – In promo-ing Russell Simmons’ book, and the concepts of Vegetarian and Veganism, Imus relates that, back at the Imus Ranch for Kids With Cancer, the little knotheads would often ask if roping the calves hurt them.  He’d always respond that no, but killing them and eating them does.  At the Texas Ranch the Imus family have many heads of cattle, and the I-Man always gives them a Pep-Talk, reminding them that “There’s no free lunch.”   They will be expected to ‘Sing for their Supper’, and willing to be roped and tied.  Of course, the only thing the calves hear is ‘Lunch’ and ‘Supper’.  But, one thing is for sure.  Their repast will be Plant-Based, lest they be accused of Cannibalism.

    “ELSIE?  ELSIE?  IS THAT…YOU???”

    8:40:43 A.M. – Co-Founder of Def Jam Recordings, and creator of the clothing lines Phat Farm, Argyleculture and Tantris, Russell Simmons is here in studio talking about his newest book THE HAPPY VEGAN .  To say that he and the I-Man are fans of each other is an understatement, as what follows is a display of mutual admiration that calls to mind that of Smithers and Mr. Burns.

    SIMMONS AND IMUS (ARTIST’S RENDERING)

    8:42:34 A.M. – The smitten Mr. Simmons laments factory farming’s effect on the environment, and processed foods that are making us sick, a topic not unfamiliar to the Imus audience, as it’s an issue that Deirdre has been talking about for the past 20 years.  Unfortunately, Mr. Simmons neglected to put the D-Woman’s name on the cover of his new book. 

    FAMOUS VEGAN, BUDDHA.  APPARENTLY, HE WAS EATING MORE THAN JUST VEGETABLES.  HE MUST’VE EATEN BACON EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE

    Simpatico Con El Chapo

    6:05:00 A.M. – The Boss is back, despite being “Sicker than 9 dogs.”  And he is disappointed that El Chapo has been caught.  After digging a mile long tunnel…and escaping prison, he’s incredulous that the Mexican Marines were able to storm his ‘Safe House’.  

    THE I-MAN.  SIMPATICO CON EL CHAPO

    6:30:20 A.M.  – Imus reports that Scott Shannon, formerly morning man at WPLJ and now at CBS FM, did an interview with the trade publication ‘Inside Radio’.   He said that he only ever wanted to do radio, there was never a plan B, and when asked if there was anything he would’ve done differently, he answered “Yes.  Not working for the Dickeys.” 

    FORMER DICKEY BROTHERS EMPLOYEE SCOTT SHANNON

    CURRENT DICKEY BROTHERS EMPLOYEE JOAN HAMBURG

    6:40:27 A.M.    It’s January, which means Lupica’s got yet another book to hump.  It’s about a kid who overcomes great odds and leads his team to victory while not getting any.  Stop us if you’ve heard this…EIGHTEEN TIMES BEFORE.  Apparently, he’s doing more in that hollow tree than just baking cookies.

    LUPY WITH HIS NEXT BEST-SELLER.  SPOILER ALERT: THERE’S A HAPPY ENDING.

    7:05:10 A.M. – The I-Man says he didn’t grade the Sean Penn article, but notes that it was poorly written.

    AT LEAST HE GOT ON THE COVER BEFORE EL CHAPO

    7:17:34 A.M. – The Boss makes a bold statement: “If Trump doesn’t win…you’re going to be disappointed.”  He maintains that even if you don’t like Trump…you’re not going to want ANY of the names currently campaigning for the office.  The only person who would disagree with that statement is Bill Clinton…because he DESPERATELY wants to get his old lady OUT OF THE F*CKING HOUSE.

    THE NEXT ENTRY IN THE BLOCKBUSTER FILM SERIES

    7:39:16 A.M. – The I-Man reveals that he received an E-Mail from Joan Hamburg.  We can only hope she wasn’t sexting.  She says that he is one of her FAVORITE Radio Personalities on the Station.  Which, given the other ‘Personalities’ here at the Station…is tantamount to being the tallest midget at the circus. 

    JOAN SENDING THE I-MAN A LITTLE RACY TEXT:

    “NO, I’M NOT WEARING CORDOUROY, IT’S ALL ME!”

    7:41:57 A.M. – The newest segment on the program, SID AND BERNIE, begins with the Title Characters discussing Donald Trump’s chances at being elected.  Although he’s not a very big fan of Trump’s, Sid admits that he stands a very good chance of winning.  Bernard is a little more specific:  “Only a Sex Tape with Gary Busey can derail him.”

    TRUMP AND GARY…BEFORE THINGS GOT REALLY CRAZY ON THEIR SEX TAPE

    7:43:11 A.M. – Sid, too, reveals that he got depressed when El Chapo was caught.  Because he had to find another dealer.

    EL CHAPO AND HIS FAVORITE FORMER CUSTOMER, SID ROSENBERG

    8:05:11 A.M. – The MAN HIMSELF, Donald Trump, has phoned in and tells America that the Chinese Manipulation of currency is what’s bringing us down. 

    WE DON’T KNOW WHAT MR. TRUMP IS TALKING ABOUT

    In conclusion, I-Man asks Mr. Trump:  ‘Do you know RFD?’   He talks our next president into appearing on the Rural Network.  The future president says he will definitely look into that.

    DONALD ON AN UPCOMING EPISODE OF ‘AMERICAN FARMER’ WITH HOST CHARLIE ALLEN

    8:40:40 A.M. – Matt Taibbi is on and says that people are in denial of Trump’s chances at ‘winning the whole thing’.   He also tells the I-Man that, since last we spoke with him, he fathered another son…Nate.  The Hearing Impaired Boss, of course, thinks Matt said ‘Ape’.  Like Taibbi isn’t a bad enough name to be saddled with…do you really think he’d add to his child’s misery by christening him ‘Ape’?

    NOW THAT’S AN ADORABLE FATHER/SON PORTRAIT

    Rest Easy, David Bowie

    6:05:00 A.M. – An Imus-Free Monday…which is rare, but it’s because he’s not feeling well, which is…familiar.  Connell has taken up the mantle, as he did on Friday.  He’s now demanded us all to refer to him as ‘The M-Man’   It’s going to be a long morning.

    HE JUST SAID ‘EVERYBODY SAY BABY…’

    6:05:35 A.M. – Shocking news, Rock Icon David Bowie has died at the age of 69.  In a related story, tragically, Justin Bieber is still alive.

    “WE COULD STEAL TIME…JUST FOR ONE DAY.  WE COULD BE HEROES FOR EVER AND EVER…WHAT DO YOU SAY?”

    6:07:14 A.M.  – Gunz reveals that he wasn’t a fan of Bowie’s.   He didn’t think much of the song ‘Space Odyssey’.   It’s ODDITY, Gunzelman.  You moron. 

     

    6:18:30 A.M.  –  The subject of Sean Penn’s interview of El Chapo for Rolling Stone is discussed.  Basically, that it’s completely unreadable.  There hasn’t been an interview this incoherent since Barbra Walters had a conversation with Stuttering John. 

    BFFS!  EL CHAPO’S BEEN HIDING IN THE JUNGLE FOR A YEAR, AND HE STILL SMELLS BETTER THAN SEAN PENN

    6:40:27 A.M.    Bo Dietl is on for his usual Monday appearance, and he is hot over the Philadelphia Cop being shot by a dude who said he did it ‘In the name of Allah’.  He calls the shooter a ‘Muslim Terrorist’…and if anybody has a problem with that, they can kiss his “Rectal Orifice.”   He also doesn’t like Sean Penn, and his “Anticonformability” and negative comments about the country.  “If you don’t like it here, go to Mexico and eat some tacos and make them come out your rectal orifice.”   He seems to be a little obsessed with this particular body part today.

    BO DIETL.  RECTAL ORIFICE.  GET IT ON YOUR MIND.

    7:05:10 A.M. – Warner believes that tonight’s NCAA College Football Championship game between Clemson and Alabama will ‘Out Rate’ the President’s State of the Union address tomorrow.  Forget the fact that the game tonight is on ESPN, and Obama’s speech will be on every network…so, even if you “Turn your sets off now”…the President wins. 

    THE PRESIDENT’S STRATEGY TO INSURE GOOD RATINGS TOMORROW NIGHT

    7:17:34 A.M. – In light of El Chapo being apprehended, Connell muses as to what it might be like to be his lawyer.  Stress?  A guy who kills 150 people by burying them up to their necks in the sand and then going over them with a lawnmower insisting that he will not do any time?  No pressure.

    “DO I TELL THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH, SO HELP ME, DIOS?  OF COURSE NOT!  WHAT THE HELL DO I HAVE YOU FOR?”

    7:39:16 A.M. PSYCHOS 1 Deirdre is incensed about Obama’s Political Correctness, uses Ricky Gervais at Last Night’s Golden Globes as an example of someone who doesn’t care about being Politically Correct.  She says Gervais has more courage than the President, because he will say awful things about people right to their face.  Something that The I-Man is famous for. 

    “RICKY, PAL…GIVE ME SOMETHING NASTY TO SAY ABOUT ISIS…”

    Rob rants about Mark Zuckerberg, and his ‘Challenge for 2016’, where he plans to run 365 miles…this year.  A mile a day.  Wow.  How inspirational.  Even ROB can run a mile a…well, not exactly…run.

    THE KEY IS TO PUT A PLATE FULL OF CHEESEBURGERS AT THE FINISH LINE

    Riedel calls Tony a Muslim Terrorist Sympathizer.  Tony responds by calling Riedel the finest theater columnist at the New York Post.  Of course Riedel is the ONLY theater columnist at the New York Post.  For that matter, the only theater columnist left in America.  But we learn that ISIS happens to be a big fan of his.

    THE ISIS REPERTORY COMPANY IN A SCENE FROM THEIR PRODUCTION OF ‘SHUFFLE OFF TO SYRIA’

    Tony is angry that out of 32 teams in the NFL, an organization that is 70% Black, there are only FOUR black head coaches.  Which is like there being 95% STRAIGHT choreographers on Broadway.

    TOMMY TUNE.  HE’S THE ONLY ONE.

    8:12:11 A.M. – Connell reviews last night’s Golden Globe awards, where Leonardo DiCaprio and ‘The Revenant’ both won in their respective categories.  This prompts our own Roger Ebert, Warner, to chime in with a bit of trivia about the film.  At one point in the movie, Leo’s character, attempting to survive in the wild, is forced to eat a Horse Heart.  The Director, Alejandro Inarritu, gave DiCaprio a choice.  Eat a mock up heart made of jelly, or the real deal.  Leo, ever the method actor, chose to suffer for his art and ate an actual horse’s heart.  Um…it’s a movie, Leo.  You didn’t really kill all those Native Americans…  

    “WAIT A MINUTE…I WASN’T REALLY RAPED BY A BEAR?  SO…WHO WAS IT?  MAN…  THERE GOES MY OSCAR.”

    8:40:43 A.M. – Always a great guest, Bernie Goldberg is on, and is man enough to admit that everything he has said about Donald Trump was wrong.  He said Trump wouldn’t run…he ran.   He said he was done after the McCain dis…his poll numbers went up.  And where he once believed that Trump couldn’t possibly win the Republican nomination…he can.  Because NO Republican can win the general election without Trump supporters.  He thinks that they should put a Trump/Hillary campaign on as a Pay Per View.

    Somebody's Doing The Smashing

    6:05:00 A.M. – Another Imus-Free Friday, and the void is filled, by Connell McShane.  (Well, not actually FILLED…there’s still a pretty substantial hole where the I-Man usually is…one that would take FIVE Robs to plug up.)

    DON’T BLAME CONNELL.  HE’S DOING THE BEST HE CAN

    6:15:30 A.M.  – Australian Golfer, Jason Day, took his wife to see a Cavaliers basketball game, during the course of which, 6’8” 265 pound LeBron James, attempting to retrieve a ball, landed on top of her.  Jason says he tried to shield his wife from the moving motor-vehicle sized object, but photos of the incident suggest otherwise. Jason is clearly seen attempting to get the hell out of there.  How chivalrous.

    AT LEAST JASON WAS ABLE TO PROTECT HIS GOLF SWING

    6:38:27 A.M.    Gunz was on ‘Red Eye’ the other day, and caused a little bit of controversy, suggesting that President Obama rubbed pepper in his eye in order to tear up at his impassioned speech about his new gun control measures.  His statement wound up making Mediaite, the News and Opinion Blog.  Unfortunately, Gunz knows of what he speaks, because he’s had pepper SPRAY in his eye…at the end of every date he’s been on since the late 90’s.

    WE’D ACTUALLY BE IN FAVOR OF PRESIDENT OBAMA TAKING AWAY THIS GUNZ.

    7:10:20 A.M. – Donald Trump Jr. phones in from Iowa.  He tells us that his father is ‘All In’ on the campaign for president.  He also tells us that he’s an outdoorsman.  Somehow we can’t see Donald Trump Junior in khaki fatigues, sitting in a duck blind, waiting for a mallard.  We see him more in a 3500 dollar Italian silk suit, sitting at the best table at Le Bernadin, waiting for his Duck a’lorange.

    “BE VEWWY VEWWY QWIET…I’M HUNTING DAFFY DUCK…”

    7:17:34 A.M. – A clip from Donald Trump’s rally in Vermont is played, where he says that we need great military leadership. “A General Patton…A General MacArthur..” Good luck with that one, Donald.  Let us know when you get ahold of them.

    THAT’LL BE A LOOOOOONG DISTANCE CALL

    7:39:16 A.M. – Former CIA Analyst Tara Maller phones in and bums us all out by telling us we need “Vigilance, Preparation, and Diligence.”  Which is her way of saying there’s not a lot we can do against terrorist attacks.  Thanks Tara.  We guess we’ll forgo taking any cabs for awhile…especially the ones who have framed pictures of the 72 Virgins on their dashboards. 

    MS. MALLER IS BRILLIANT, SO SHE HAS TO DUMB IT DOWN A LITTLE SO WE CAN FOLLOW.  SHE EVEN GRUNTS SO GUNZ CAN UNDERSTAND

    So, basically, if you’re hailing a cab, and the driver says  “I am not going uptown my friend…I’m going to see Allah!”  you may want to take the subway instead.

    WE SHOULD BE MORE ATTENTIVE…ESPECIALLY IF WE’RE NOT USING UBER.

    8:13:26 A.M. – Bernie plays some clips of Donald Trump’s Burlington rally last night, and observes that Trump campaign events are sounding more and more like Rock Concerts, or an Arena Comedy Show. Tony says it’s like going to see Gallagher.  Pretty soon the people in the first few rows will have to wear plastic ponchos while Trump Sledgehammers Bean Burritos.   

    WHO’S DOING THE SMASHING?  SOMEBODY’S DOING THE SMASHING!

    8:20:40 A.M. – Mr. Trump had to deal with a few hecklers last night, but employed a Trump Style sentencing.  They were thrown out into the bitterly cold Vermont weather…but kept their coats…saying that he’d send them along in a couple of weeks.

    TRUMP ALSO TOOK THIS GUY’S PANTS

    8:22:44 A.M. – Connell attempts to assuage investor angst in light of the awful Stock Market numbers over the past few days, but notes that the jobs report, and the futures are both better than expected, and we should all relax because we’re not retiring anytime soon.  That is, except for Warner who, it’s determined, doesn’t even buy Green Bananas.

    WARNER AND MRS. WOLF, SUE, TOAST TO ‘RIPENING WITH OLD AGE’

    8:40:43 A.M. – The man who will host the GOP debate on Fox Business, and everybody’s favorite guest, Neil Cavuto, has phoned in. He also happens to be the host of ‘Coast to Coast’ on Fox Business, and ‘Your World’ on Fox News…which, pretty much, makes him the Tom Vu of Fox.

    WITH NEIL, YOU TOO, CAN MAKE MILLUNS AND MILLUNS OF DOLLARS

    8:42:11 A.M. – Neil is more than prepared for his task next week.  He says that a good debate moderator must be sure of the facts, otherwise, the candidates will turn it around and make it all about you.  Because “You can never go wrong attacking the media”

    WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT THE SKINHEADS FOUND OUT IN 1988, WHEN THEY SUCCESSFULLY BROKE GERALDO RIVERA’S NOSE
