Wednesday Reads: Supporters ala tRumpPosted: June 19, 2019
Do you ever look at a group of people…and say to yourself, tRump supporters.
Aside from this story being on FoxNews….or the fact that the fishing boat is called, cough: “Big Nutz Required II”
Jeff Crilly was out on his boat the “Big Nutz Required II” with some pals Monday when a great white shark swam up to the stem of the boat and grabbed a bag of chum, in a tale reminiscent of the 1975 blockbuster “Jaws.”
“Whoah! This thing is huge!” the group can be heard yelling in a video of the incident posted by Crilly on Facebook.
**WARNING: PROFANE LANGUAGE**
They continue to cry “holy sh-t!” as the beast approaches and circles the boat, rearing its nose to chow down on a yellow bag of chum.
“Dude that was the coolest f–ing thing I’ve ever seen, oh my God, dude! Once in a lifetime man,” one of the fishermen shouts as the others laugh and cheer in disbelief.
Crilly didn’t immediately respond to a message from The Post but told the Asbury Park Press the five-man fishing crew was about 30 miles southeast of Manasquan Inlet when the shark approached.

Parents of 7-year-old youth baseball players in Colorado brawled over the weekend after a controversial call was made by the umpire — who is 13.
Police in Lakewood released video of the ugly incident on Tuesday with the hope of collaring at least one of the assailants. Several people have already been cited, according to cops.
Video shows the parents and coaches slugging it out as horrified children and spectators look on.
“I think the saddest part in all of this is we’re talking about a 7-year-old baseball game,” police spokesman John Romero told TV station Fox 31. “I think it’s the parents who have to grow up.”
At least one person was seriously injured in the melee, which took place Saturday at Westgate Elementary School. The violence started after the teen umpire ruled that a player on one of the teams batted out of order, according to KKTV.

One last link, to cleans the palette: Masculinity is a trap – which is why more men should wear skirts | Arwa Mahdawi | Opinion | The Guardian
It is sad that so many men are petrified about seeming effeminate. It is sad that it is not socially acceptable for men to experiment with fashion in the same way women can. Happily, however, things are changing gradually. No one looks twice at a guy with a man-bun or a man-bag any more; male makeup is a growing industry; and male rompers were a thing for a while.
While men in dresses are still considered noteworthy, guys such as Porter are sashaying into the mainstream. The rapper Young Thug is fond of skirts and the actor Jaden Smith frequently and unapologetically dons dresses. “If I Wanna Wear A Dress, Then I Will, And That Will Set The New Wave,” Smith wrote on Twitter last year. Meanwhile London fashion week featured so many men breezing along in gender-fluid fashion that GQ proclaimed: “2019 is the year men will start wearing skirts.” I certainly hope so. Masculinity is a straitjacket; it is high time more men broke free.
This is an open thread.
