Michael Cohen predicts Trump will turn on family after revelation of criminal probe

Michael Cohen, former President Trump’s ex-lawyer, said he thinks Trump will turn on his family following news that the New York attorney general is investigating the Trump Organization in a “criminal capacity” as well as a “civil capacity.”

“I think Donald Trump is going to flip on all of them. What do you think about that? Including his children,” Cohen told host Joy Reid on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut.”

Cohen said that the “problem” with Trump is that “it’s never ever Donald Trump. It’s always somebody else.”

Commonly Used Fallacies of Logic and Reasoning

People knowingly and unknowingly engage in bad reasoning—especially in meetings and arguments. Using bad logic and fallacious reasoning, one can easily create a strong case that looks accurate and unbeatable, when in fact, it’s just a trick i.e., the logic of the argument is fallacious.

A precursor to effective persuasion is taking down your opponent’s logic by finding flaws in their claims while also dodging their attacks. Here’s a list of 25 most common logical fallacies that would help you arm yourself against false arguments disguised to look good.

Mississippi Slugburger

The Magnolia State staple that once cost a slug (slang for a nickel) consists of a beef patty mixed with a cheap extender—traditionally cornmeal; in more recent years, soybean meal. Fry it in vegetable oil, add a bun, garnish with mustard, pickle and onions, and you’ve got yourself a sandwich worth celebrating. The annual Slugburger Festival takes place each July in downtown Corinth.

Higgins, T. – Cin (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Tee Higgins, WR, Cincinnati Bengals (6/23) Advice: Tee Higgins was an excellent breakout candidate before the Bengals selected Ja’Marr Chase in the first round. Now he’s a high-upside No. 3 receiver who should be drafted around Round 6. While Higgins’ 2020 numbers are impressive for a rookie receiver, they don’t tell the full story. He played 18 snaps and earned one target in Week 1 and Week 17 combined. The other 14 games he averaged 13.9 PPR Fantasy points per game, which would have made him the third best rookie receiver. And that’s catching passes from Ryan Finley and Brandon Allen while sharing targets with A.J. Green, who’s off to Arizona. Higgins has legitimate top-20 upside even with Chase on the team. While you’ll have to wait to see the top-20 upside in redraft, Higgins’ age and upside is enough to make him a top-20 Dynasty receiver right now. (CBSSports.com)

Taylor, J. – Ind (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Jonathan Taylor, RB, Indianapolis Colts (6/23) Advice: Taylor ended up where many expected him to be by the start of his second season: as a consensus first-round pick in all leagues. Of course, those of you who drafted him as a rookie know the path to getting to that place was anything but a straight line. Taylor opened the season as a backup, but quickly became the starter with Marlon Mack’s injury. And then … nothing really happened for a while. He got around a dozen carries and a few targets per week for a few months, and even found himself effectively benched for a stretch in November when both Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines surpassed him at one point. Taylor eventually locked up the No. 1 role down the stretch, rushing for 651 yards and seven touchdowns over his final five games and averaging nearly 20 carries per game. He’ll enter 2021 as the unquestioned top option in Indy and is one of the few backs with the potential to challenge for the No. 1 overall spot if he earns a larger role in the passing game. He ended up being exactly what we expected in the end. (CBSSports.com)

‘Slow-motion insurrection’: How GOP seizes election power

In the weeks leading up to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, a handful of Americans — well-known politicians, obscure local bureaucrats — stood up to block then-President Donald Trump’s unprecedented attempt to overturn a free and fair vote of the American people.

Barkley, S. – NYG (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants (6/23) Advice: Saquon Barkley is expected to be fine coming off last year’s torn ACL, and he should be ready for training camp. If he’s healthy as expected then Barkley should once again be considered a first-round draft pick in all Fantasy leagues, and he will likely be selected in the first five overall picks. Last year was a disaster for Barkley, who appeared in just two games and suffered a torn ACL in Week 2. However, he should return in time for training camp, and he still has the potential to be the No. 1 RB in all Fantasy leagues in 2021. Remember, prior to 2020 Barkley scored at least 20 PPR points in 16 of his first 29 games and failed to score at least 13 PPR points just five times over that span. He should remain the focal point of the Giants offense, and hopefully he’s healthy for all 17 games this year. (CBSSports.com)

Sanders, E. – Buf (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Buffalo Bills (6/23) Advice: After an impressive but short stint with the 49ers in 2019, Emmanuel Sanders joined the Saints, but he was unable to find his footing in New Orleans. That’s not all that uncommon for WRs coming over to the Saints during the Drew Brees era and dealing with a timing-based passing system. Josh Allen and the Bills should be a much better fit for Sanders’ skill set in 2021 — specifically on improvised plays off schedule and in the deep passing game. He won’t cost much in drafts due to the competition around him and that makes Sanders a priority flier in what should be one of the NFL’s best passing attacks. (CBSSports.com)

Arizona’s Vote Recount

Arizona still hasn’t come to terms with the fact that Donald Trump lost the state election, so they’re recounting the votes for a third time. Jordan Klepper investigates.

For many, the belated realization that Covid will be ‘a long war’ sparks anger and denial

In May, when the CDC said fully vaccinated people could ditch masks and social distancing, it seemed to signal a return to normalcy. But epidemiologists cautioned at the time that the move wasn’t likely to be permanent, and shouldn’t be interpreted as the end of Covid-19 as a daily concern. Colder weather or a right hook in the virus’s evolution could bring restrictions right back.

Still, Americans seem shocked by the recent turn of events. Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised everyone — even those who’ve gotten Covid-19 shots — to go back to indoor masking, a decision driven by new data showing the hyper-contagious Delta variant colonizes the nose and throat of some vaccinated people just as well as the unvaccinated, meaning they may just as easily spread this new version of the virus, while stilling being protected against the worst manifestations of the disease.

Mac Jones Highlights

Alabama QB Mac Jones
Junior 6’3 214 lbs

After losing star QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama turned to Mac Jones & the offense hasn’t taken much of a drop off. Of course, it helps to have potential 1st round offensive playmakers in Jaylen Waddle, DeVonta Smith & Najee Harris, but Jones has been the leader. He’s made impressive throws all over the field & has a chance to win the Heisman. While Kyle Trask leads the nation in passing touchdowns, it’s Jones who many view as the current Heisman favorite. This can change, but as of right now Mac Jones is in the driver’s seat leading the No. 1 team in the country.

Perriman, B. – Det (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Breshad Perriman, WR, Detroit Lions (6/23) Advice: Breshad Perriman signed with the Lions this offseason, and he should be among their top three receivers this year. Hopefully Perriman can get on the same page with new quarterback Jared Goff and play at a high level, but Perriman will likely continue to be too inconsistent to trust. He spent 2020 with the Jets and had four games with at least 11 PPR points, but he also had seven games with five PPR points or less. Perriman isn’t worth drafting in most Fantasy leagues, but he could become a waiver-wire addition during the season. (CBSSports.com)

‘Tirades of profanity’: Axios reporter describes Trump meeting

Axios reporter Jonathan Swan describes a December 18 meeting between President Donald Trump, White House officials and conspiracy theorists that ended in a profanity-laced shouting match. Swan, who has covered Donald Trump’s presidency for years, called it one of the most dark and demented meetings of the administration.

Hill, T. – NO (QB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Taysom Hill, QB, New Orleans Saints (6/23) Advice: An injury to Drew Brees brought one of the biggest surprises of the 2020 season: Saints coach Sean Payton turning to Taysom Hill and not Jameis Winston as his replacement QB. Hill quickly burst onto the scene as a Fantasy option due to both the floor and ceiling that comes with his ability to run the football — between the 20s, and specifically in the red zone. The Saints bring back both Hill and Winston for 2021, and therefore neither player will cost more than a late-round investment, but Hill’s rushing upside makes him the type of late-round dart throw you’re better off tossing. If you wait to draft your starting QB, Hill makes for an excellent backup to target at the end of your drafts given his upside to be a top-10 (and that might be conservative) Fantasy QB.

This is the most unhinged Trump rant about the 2020 election yet

Donald Trump has set a pretty high bar for himself when it comes to wild rants. And yet, over the weekend in a speech to Turning Point Action in Arizona, he managed to outdo himself.

Words – or at least my words – can’t do it justice. So, here’s the former President of the United States:

“The county has, for whatever reason, also refused to produce the network routers. We want the routers, Sonny, Wendy, we got to get those routers, please. The routers. Come on, Kelly, we can get those routers. Those routers. You know what? We’re so beyond the routers, there’s so many fraudulent votes without the routers. But if you got those routers, what that will show, and they don’t want to give up the routers. They don’t want to give them. They are fighting like hell. Why are these commissioners fighting not to give the routers?”

Jones II, R. – TB (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Ronald Jones, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6/23) Advice: Ronald Jones was an industry favorite of those drafters employing a zero-RB strategy in 2020, but the hype was deflated after the Jags surprisingly cut Leonard Fournette and the Bucs signed him. Although Jones flashed breakaway ability and more often than not looked like the most effective RB on the roster during the regular season, mental errors in the form of fumbles and dropped passes continued to plague him. At one point it looked like he was finally taking on the role Fournette ultimately earned in the playoffs, but then Jones got injured. Jones makes for a risky flier due to his unlikely role in the passing game and his uncertain role in red zone. (CBSSports.com)

Rankings – Top Rookie Wide Receivers of 2021 [Pre-Draft]

We’re still a few weeks away from full-on NFL Draft season, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t start thinking about our dynasty fantasy football teams with NFL free agency kicking off in less than a month.

I broke down my top-five list at the wide receiver position in January, but it’s time to dig a little deeper. For those looking to go beyond even what we’ll cover here, PFF’s 2021 NFL Draft Guide has you covered — the current iteration breaks down the top 200 college prospects, and it will be updated throughout the offseason leading up to the NFL Draft in April.

For now, let’s dig into the top 15 wide receivers for dynasty fantasy football leagues in 2021. These rankings will certainly be affected by players’ landing spots, but it’s a place to start for those who might be trading rookie draft picks in the dynasty offseason.

Gun Laws Don’t Need Extremism… They Need Common Sense. Here’s Our Ideas For Protecting Human Lives Without Radical Gun Control Measures.

All too often the discussion about gun control abandons laws of reason and immediately turns into a political football of hyperbole and slipper slope fallacies of reasoning. The most extreme position I’ve ever heard from any Democrat is on the banning of assault-style rifles. I’ve never heard a Republican clarify that a ban on assault-style rifles is not the same as a ban on all guns. Generally speaking, most legislation is on the concept of implementing background checks on all gun sales. The vast majority of Americans agree with that position; which begs the question of who in Congress is stopping Americans from having the democratic process and why are they behaving that way?
