Former President George H.W. Bush hospitalized in intensive care unit

Former President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized in Houston and is in the intensive care unit, according to CNN.

This coming just days after former First Lady Barbara Bush's funeral on Saturday.

A family spokesman said he was admitted to the hospital Sunday morning after contracting an infection that spread to his blood. A statement said he appears to be recovering.

Oh, I hope he recovers.  For his family to lose him so soon after losing her, that would be so difficult.

^^^

Did they find this guy yet?
___

Lyle

He was arrested today in a wooded area very close to his apartment.  From the way he looked has been living there since the shooting.

I still say they should bring charges against the father. This question was asked today and the police said they are thinking about it.

He might beat the current infection, but I suspect he won't last too much longer without Barbara. I've seen it happen.

I'm watching a press conference with 45 and President Macron.  As always, when watching 45 and any other leader, I'm amazed at how the other person can always speak without a teleprompter, they don't insult anyone, they make sense, they manage coherent sentences, they don't say how great they are, they don't repeat the same word (great, great man; horrible, horrible accident...just one more thing that drives me crazy about 45).

He just called on Fox for the first question...

to continue...Macron didn't insult the press, didn't defend the indefensible, he stayed on message and didn't drift...the difference between a professional and a hack.

The difference between a class act and a narcissistic, self-absorbed, ignorant, uncouth doofus.

And what about him brushing off some dandruff off Macron's shoulder? The guy is a complete embarrassment. The always on point Mrs Betty Bowers tweeted this:

“When the aging gorilla is confronted with the much more virile, new alpha-male, he shows submissiveness by grooming the alpha-male, but the gesture is actually a vain attempt by the old gorilla to humiliate his much younger rival.”

I couldn't believe that when I saw it. Then again, I don't know why I couldn't believe it.  :(

hilarious comparison to the gorilla!!  :D :D :D

And what's with all the handsy from Trump to Macron? I can't really tell if Macron is bothered by this or not, surely so though. And trying to kiss Melania, or hold her hand? That's not happening....she does FINALLY seem to be enjoying the moments with the Macron's......not so much with her hubby!! as usual........

She enjoyed herself more at Barbara Bush's funeral, apparently, than she does sharing a space with her husband.

So. Bill Cosby has been convicted and Tom Brokaw has been accused.

I'm sure most serial rapists get this treatment instead of going to jail:

Judge O'Neill ruled that Cosby should not leave his home. Since Cosby has homes in multiple states, the judge noted that if he does arrange with the appropriate offices to stay in a home in another state he must first be fitted with a GPS tracking device before leaving.
