HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody?

Joe Biden posted a video announcing his candidacy for the presidency Thursday, becoming the twentieth Democrat to join the race. The debates will be a circus. There are so many Democratic candidates that they have to stand in line and audition for Howie Mandel before we can vote on them.

Heineken Beer launched a campaign for its new non-alcoholic beer using the stars of NBC’s “The Office” to promote Friday as Bring Your Beer to Work Day. What is the point of this beer anyway? I’m guessing that non-alcoholic beer is like being with a hooker who simply wants to cuddle.

London Daily Mail reports London is awash in knife violence on the streets. There are dozens of stabbings every day, proof that in a nation that allows no derringers, no automatic pistols, no handguns and no machine guns, that people of good will can find a way to control street corners.

Oliver North quit as NRA president after CEO Wayne LaPierre accused him of extorting him over travel expenses and sexual harassment claims. It marred last weekend’s convention. The NRA membership was embarrassed and just wishes they’d settle the issue like gentlemen, with a duel.

Bill and Hillary Clinton went on Comedy Central Friday where Hillary performed a comedic impression of Trump’s vulgar reaction two years ago to the news that a Special Counsel had been named. The crowd responded with complete silence. The last time Hillary bombed like this, Libya fell.
