Of course it stops being funny when you have to explain it.

He said it right after sparks missed the point and you had said nothing about it.

I'm inclined to think ed was confused, or possibly he fat fingered his reply.

Would anyone care to post an NBL and see if it changes the course of history?

(It might, in so far as my ability to change World Events...)

Changing history is notably difficult, but perhaps this will cheer you up?

Report: FBI raids offices of Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen
WASHINGTON, April 9 (Reuters) - The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) raided the offices of U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen, the New York Times reported on Monday.

Cohen has been at the center of a controversy surrounding the payment of a porn star who has alleged that she had sex with Trump and was paid money shortly before the 2016 election to keep quiet about it.
And now she wants more...oh never mind.
Stephen Ryan, Cohen's lawyer, confirmed to the New York Times that a raid had taken place and that certain "communications" had been seized. "I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller," said Ryan.

I remember reading or hearing about this alleged threat before. I thought at the time, well good luck proving that one. And that's what I still think. It sounds plausible but also impossible to prove. Supposedly a complete stranger approached her at an airport where she was with her baby daughter and told her to keep her mouth shut about Trump, or else "it'd be a shame if something happened" to her. Then he walked away. Assuming for the sake of argument that this is true, how could you prove it? Anyway, it was like 7 years ago which makes it even harder to prove.

I still think they won't be able to prove anything but they are offering a reward if anyone has information.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/pos ... 1a7ffe6c6c

The lawyer representing Stormy Daniels, an adult-film actress who said she had a sexual relationship with President Trump in 2006, said he will announce a “sizable” reward for the identification of a person he said threatened his client to keep quiet about the alleged affair.

Along with that announcement, which attorney Michael Avenatti said will happen Tuesday, will be the release of a composite sketch of a man who allegedly threatened Daniels in a Las Vegas parking lot seven years ago. In an interview on CNN’s “New Day” on Monday morning, Avenatti declined to say how much the reward money would be or whether he’s working with police to identify the man.

We are very close to identifying this individual. … We need some assistance from the public,” Avenatti told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, adding later, “I’m also confident that when we release the sketch tomorrow and when we offer the sizable reward, someone is going to come forward and it’s going to tighten the noose, if you will, on this issue.”
Sounds like a long shot to me but they seem to think there's a chance. Interesting that Mueller would raid Cohen's office one the next day. Could just be a coincidence.

Here's a Wall Street Journal article about the raid. Either it isn't paywalled or you can access it through Google News:

Agents Raid Office of Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen in Connection With Stormy Daniels Payments
President Donald Trump calls raids a ‘disgrace’ and a ‘witch hunt’ as federal agents seize communications on topics including payments to former porn actress

FBI agents searched the office, home and Manhattan hotel room of President Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, on Monday, seizing records related to a payment to a former adult-film actress, a person familiar with the matter said.

The searches were executed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of a probe by the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan, which has opened an investigation that is being coordinated with the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, this person said.

Mr. Trump, in a meeting with military leadership at the White House on Monday evening, called the raids a “disgrace” and a “witch hunt.”

“It’s an attack on what we all stand for,” said Mr. Trump, referring to the investigation.

The president criticized Mr. Mueller’s team, calling it “the most conflicted group of people” and said Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a “terrible mistake” by recusing himself from the Justice Department’s investigation into Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Asked if he would fire Mr. Mueller, Mr. Trump said: “We’ll see what happens.”

“Many people have said, ‘You should fire him,’” the president said. He didn’t say whether he intended to do so.

The multiple raids mark a significant escalation in prosecutors’ interest in Mr. Cohen and suggest authorities received high-level approval to conduct the searches because investigators typically don’t seize documents from attorneys due to of the sensitivities surrounding attorney-client privilege.

In October 2016, less than two weeks before the presidential election, Mr. Cohen made a $130,000 payment to Stephanie Clifford, the former porn actress known as Stormy Daniels, The Wall Street Journal reported in January. He made the payment as part of an agreement that bars Ms. Clifford from discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump.

Steve Ryan, Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, confirmed in a statement Monday that prosecutors executed a series of search warrants. The prosecutors told him that the action is, in part, a referral by Mr. Mueller’s office, he said.

Mr. Ryan called the use of search warrants “completely inappropriate and unnecessary” and said it had “resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients.” He added: “These government tactics are also wrong because Mr. Cohen has cooperated completely with all government entities, including providing thousands of nonprivileged documents to the Congress and sitting for depositions under oath.”

A spokesman for Mr. Mueller’s office declined to comment.

Meantime, federal authorities have demanded bank records related to the $130,000 payment, according to a person briefed on the matter. First Republic Bank , which Mr. Cohen used to wire $130,000 to Ms. Clifford’s lawyer on Oct. 27, 2016, conducted its own investigation of the transaction after receiving the subpoena from the authorities, the person said.

The bank sent its findings to the Treasury Department in a suspicious-activity report, the person said. Such reports are required to be sent to the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network when banks observe transactions that have no apparent lawful purpose or deviate inexplicably from a customer’s normal bank activity.
