1-Massive ‘F-ck Cuomo and de Blasio’ mural painted on Brooklyn street
For nearly 24 hours this weekend, an all-caps, block-long message painted in yellow on a Brooklyn street contained the rage of New York City: “F-ck Cuomo and de Blasio.”
The New York Post reported the shout-out to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was created around 1 a.m. Saturday during an annual block party that also served as a “small business owner protest.”
“A few partygoers got the idea to paint in huge [letters, using] yellow paint with rollers on North 15th, ‘Fuck Cuomo and de Blasio,’” an unidentified attendee said Sunday. “The party continued. Everyone took photos. It was a big hit. The crowds cheered, even the cops chuckled.”
The Department of Transportation covered the street art in black around 10 p.m. Saturday. (Below you can see the sign with the profanity removed.)

2-Jimmy Kimmel trolls Trump at 2020 Emmys as Schitt’s Creek wins big
The 72nd Emmy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel joined Black-ish star Anthony Anderson in a chant of “Black Lives Matter” during the live broadcast on Sunday, in a skit that saw Anderson lament how the awards show was forced to go virtual, stopping all the black nominees and winners from basking in their victory together.
“You know we have a record number of black Emmy nominees this year, which is great,” said Anderson, after joining Kimmel on stage. “This was supposed to be the blackest Emmys ever. You wouldn’t have even been able to handle how black it was going to be. But because of covid, we can’t even get in the damn building.”
“We would have had speeches, quoting our great poets,” he continued. “But instead of that sexy melanated energy, here I am alone in a sterilized green room, trying not to sneeze on a lama.
Anderson then successfully coaxed Kimmel into chanting Black Lives Matter. “You know what? I’m still routine for everybody black,” Anderson said. “Because black stories, black voices, and black lives matter. Say it with me, Jimmy.”
DML: If Black Lives Matter, then why do black males have children and then take off — abandoning them at record numbers? Why do black males kill other black males at a rate that makes homicide the leading cause of death for black males under 40? Had the Emmy’s announced it’s show would be a majority black Emmy Awards, the ratings would have been terrible. Let’s be honest, nobody in the media will say it… by I will: White people, Latinos, and Asians are tired of hearing black people cry baby about being held accountable for the crimes they committ.
3-Mark Ruffalo at the Emmys: Will You Vote for ‘Love, Compassion, and Kindness’ or ‘Division and Hatred’
Actor Mark Ruffalo, who won his first Emmy Award Sunday for HBO’s I Know This Much Is True, urged people to cast their ballots in November for “love and compassion and kindness” during his impassioned acceptance speech.
The anti-Trump actor delivered a highly emotional speech in which he never mentioned the president or Joe Biden by name. But the commander in chief was the clear subtext in his rambling monologue.
“We are stronger together when we love each other and we respect each other’s diversity. Are we going to be a country of division, hatred and a country only for a certain kind of people or are we going to be one of love and strength & fighting for all of us?” Ruffalo said.
DML: I’m sorry Mark, I missed the message. Do you mean that Biden will bring peace and love? I alert you to the scene unfolding in liberal cities across America. Here’s a short video from the weekend to serve as a reminder.

Overnight on 18–19 Sept, #antifa resumed rioting in Portland after putting it on hold because of wildfire smoke. They surrounded ICE facility & hurled projectiles at cops. A rioter broke open multiple fire hydrants, causing water to spill all over streets. https://t.co/hwfCjJ0Abz pic.twitter.com/zfmYsYqxul

4-Marco Rubio Expects More Indictments In Durham Probe, Speculates That FBI Abuse Is ‘Far Worse’ Than Publicly Known
Sen. Marco Rubio, the acting chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on Sunday that he anticipates additional indictments in a federal probe into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation.
Rubio also said in an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that he believes the FBI engaged in activities that are “far worse” during Crossfire Hurricane than what’s been publicly revealed.
“I anticipate that we will see some criminal charges here,” Rubio told host Maria Bartiromo.
“I have a feeling that there are things that they did that we don’t even know about yet that are far worse than what’s been publicly revealed. We’ll find out. It’s just a feeling, but given some of the body language I’m seeing I have a feeling that some of the conduct goes beyond anything any of us know yet.”
DML: This goes deeper into the Obama’s living room than anyone realized. Although I can’t bucket myself in the “anyone” crowd. Isaid it from the beginning, this was all Obama, Comey and Hillary from the get go. This is why you follow and share my posts.
5-Trump says Supreme Court list is down to 5 people, announcement coming Friday or Saturday
President Trump on Monday said he has narrowed his list of potential Supreme Court nominees to five people and vowed to announce his pick to fill late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vacancy by Friday or Saturday.
During an exclusive interview on “Fox & Friends,” the president said that the final Senate vote for his potential nominee should be taken “before the election” and “should go very quickly.”
Ginsburg, 87, died on Friday, due to complications surrounding metastatic pancreatic cancer.
“The bottom line is we won the election, we have an obligation to do what’s right and act as quickly as possible,” Trump said.
