Don Jr Sports Betting Joke

Donald J. Trump Jr. made a sports betting joke on Twitter during Superbowl LIII. Will federal legalization of sports betting follow?

“Anyone want the over?” joked the president’s son about the defensive slug fest, leading some sports enthusiasts to hope the administration may loosen federal regulations against sports betting after the Supreme Court allowed states to legalize it last year.

Trump Jr. was referring to the Over/Under, which is a bet paying winners if they correctly predict whether the combined points scored from both teams surpass (over) or fall short (under) of a number determined by oddsmakers.

This year’s Super Bowl was 56 points, so the 13-3 victory by the Patriots clinched the under for gamblers.

Last year the Supreme Court determined that the federal government could not interfere with states that choose to legalize sports betting.

SCOTUSBlog reported:

Similarly, the majority posited, if Congress had known that the bar on state authorization or operation of sports betting would be struck down, it would not have wanted the parallel ban on the operation of sports-betting schemes by private entities to continue. The PASPA provision barring the advertising of sports betting met the same fate; otherwise, the court explained, “federal law would forbid the advertising of an activity that is legal under both federal and state law, and that is something that Congress has rarely done.”

The majority acknowledged that the question of whether to legalize sports gambling “is a controversial one” that “requires an important policy choice.” But that choice, the majority continued, “is not ours to make. Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each State is free to act on its own.”

President Donald J. Trump previously suggested that a decision to lift the blanket federal ban could be considered, but noted that the administration “wouldn’t do it lightly.”

As Trump Jr.’s comical tweet turns heads, Big League Politics also discovered a Trump-related bet available on one sports betting website, allowing users to bet on how many times President Trump would tweet during the Superbowl.

The president did not tweet during the game, making more “under” bettors very happy.

Father Handcuffed, Arrested for Playing Tee Ball with Wife and Daughter in Public Park

So much for the land of the free.

Published

Matt Mooney, a 33-year-old father and resident of Brighton, Colo., was accosted by police in a public park and restrained with handcuffs for playing tee ball with his wife and 6-year-old daughter on Sunday afternoon.

Mooney told his story to the FOX31 Problem Solvers and believes he is entitled to an apology because of the cruel mistreatment he received from these uniformed thugs on a coronavirus-enabled power trip.

He described the shocking and traumatizing ordeal that his young daughter was forced to go through because of the government overreach.

“She’s like, ‘Daddy, I don’t want you to get arrested.’ At this point I’m thinking, ‘There’s no way they’re going to arrest me, this is insane.’ I’m telling her, ‘Don’t worry, Daddy’s not going to get arrested. I’ve done nothing wrong. Don’t worry about it,’ and then they arrest me,” Mooney told FOX31.

Mooney refused to provide identification to law enforcement because he believed he was in compliance with the law. Former Brighton City Councilman Kirby Wallin recorded much of the incident on his cell phone camera.

“He’s being taken by the Brighton police for playing softball with his daughter in an empty park,” Wallin said.

Wallin does not believe that what law enforcement did to Mooney in front of his family was appropriate.

“I find it hard to believe with all the things going on in our communities, the only way to resolve a situation like this was to handcuff a father in front of his daughter,” he told FOX31.

Mooney noted that he and his family were in full compliance with the sign that was posted at Donelson Park, which said “Closed” but specified in small print that “in groups of no more than 4 persons, parks remain open for walking, hiking, biking, running and similar activities.” He is accusing the cops of violating the social distance orders by hassling him and humiliating him in front of his daughter.

“During the contact, none of the officers had masks on, none of them had gloves on, and they’re in my face handcuffing me, they’re touching me,” he said.

“If we’re going to go ahead and start arresting people for no reason in front of their 6-year-old daughter, you’re just going to cause more problems later on,” Mooney added.

The Brighton police have not taken responsibility for their heinous actions at the present time. They did release a vague statement on their Facebook page Sunday night though, which may or may not be referencing the incident.

“The Brighton Police Department is conducting an investigation into a situation that occurred late this afternoon at Donelson Park. This is an active investigation and so we are unable to provide additional information until the investigation is complete,” they wrote.

The Brighton police thus far have not returned media requests for comment. This is just the latest in a countless number of infringements with coronavirus hysteria used as the catalyst to sever core freedoms.
