Kathy Griffin was trying to jump the queue for a COVID test, turning out she had diarrhea after a trip to Mexico.



Kathy Griffin was trying to jump the queue for a COVID test, turning out she had diarrhea after a trip to Mexico.

Days after Comedian Kathy Griffin’s announcement of entry to a COVID-19 isolation room — it can be noted that the D Lister mouthful doesn’t have a coronavirus while taking the opportunity to criticize President Trump’s coronavirus reaction.

Currently, according to Griffin’s friend, Randy Bick, Griffin has an abdominal infection after visiting Mexico on holiday last week.

According to Back, before receiving professional treatment, she became self-isolated.

Although Griffin has encountered the symptoms of ‘intense pain, vomiting, diarrhea every 20 minutes’ for a minority of coronavirus patients, these are not common symptoms of the virus, as Bick has told the Los Angeles Times.

“We were still worried because, since our return from [a trip to] Mexico, we were both incubated, but in days we had not left the room, either,” Griffin said to the Times.

“We’d learn about time [for coronavirus] of 14 days of incubation. I figured, well, it was a mistake or something to get what looked like food poisoning after six days? “Match.” Match. Just what. Not what.

Given Griffin’s healthy lungs and an IT scan revealing that her intestines had an infection, an emergency room specialist felt that she should be checked. This was contradictory to the suggestions issued by the Centers for Disease Control in a second.

But it was claimed she wasn’t able to get one when she went to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles (right, because it was a major ER hospital).

The directions said “I know not to go back until my lungs have been full of broken glass if I can not breathe and if my Temperature is 103” “Griffin said.” The instructions said, “Wow … now, I know not to come back.”

“We don’t at all make the rules. That is an awful experience.

“All assessments will be available to all, I guess,” she says. “I assume that is too clear. “Some people, once they hear the President saying that anyone who wants a check should have one, they shouldn’t have to go to a doctor where they can, honestly, reveal their own selves or disclose others.” Nonetheless, here are the suggestions made in the CDC as to who needs to be checked as a matter of priority: “Hospitalized patients; Medical Symptomatics; Long-term care patients with symptoms; 65-year-old patients with symptoms; symptomatic patients with chronic conditions; First responders with symptoms; Symptom vital infrastructure staff.” No D-list actors are just self-admitted.

Not individuals with signs which do not completely suit coronavirus. Not individuals whose signs suit someone who has recently been to a place that has not unexplained food poisoning issues.

Neither of these issues emphasize her.

Griffin is five hundred and nine. Their signs, chest X-ray and abdominal CT scans are all in accordance with those without COVID-19.

She’s in good shape, obviously. She is not a first response and tweeting is not a vital infrastructure worker.

None of this do include Trump’s tweet shared exclusivity. It does not automatically mean that we have all the samples we need unless we did more research. When someone is not actually a first responder, it is not automatically liable for using equipment to check someone in one of the hotbeds without traditional COVID-19 symptoms.

Nor is a check needed if you don’t meet the requirements and accuse Mike Pence of failing. That is not his fault. This is not his fault. Nor does Donald Trump mean that he lies.

So more than “Kathy Griffin” headlines “Kathy Griffin lies,” here’s the trouble with Grip’s initial tweet: she understood she was definitely not sick, so she criticized the fact that she had no check on whether a president and vice president, after having just returned just days ago, was facing the most mordant pandemic on a hundred years.

This was a little too good for Kathy Griffin to be honest and we would have known.

We hope that she will repair the twitter storm, which she will certainly blame for her visceral anger in the President’s economic battle with Mexico.

Omar Kelly: Dolphins’ commitment to Tua isn’t unanimous and it could hurt search for coach



Omar Kelly: Dolphins’ commitment to Tua isn’t unanimous and it could hurt search for coach

History has had a nasty habit of repeating itself with the Miami Dolphins during the past decade, if not two.

No matter how hard the franchise tries to steer a different course, it keeps traveling down the same path, making similar mistakes, and the people who record that history need to take some ownership for this ride on the mediocrity merry-go-round.

At least I do, because not all of Dolphins’ history has been recorded properly, or done in a timely fashion.

For instance, you’ve probably heard whisperers, or internet chatter about the failed coup d’état the 2014 receivers orchestrated at the end of the season to have quarterback Ryan Tannehill replaced by Matt Moore.

As I’ve been told by multiple sources, in December of that season, with a playoff berth on the line, the receiver unit sat down with then-head coach Joe Philbin and asked him to bench Tannehill for Moore, who was a more aggressive passer.

Philbin denied their request, and 7-5 turned into 8-8. Every receiver on that team outside of Jarvis Landry and Rishard Matthews was traded or purged that offseason.

Tannehill survived, got new weapons the next offseason, and Miami’s mediocrity marched on. I never reported about the attempted coup at the time because the receivers didn’t want it out then, since it failed, and it could have hurt their NFL future.

But I’m bringing it up now because I’ve been hearing plenty of locker-room discomfort regarding the franchise’s supposedly unwavering commitment to Tua Tagovailoa, the 2020 first-round pick for whom Miami has gone 13-8 in his starts the past two seasons.

Players aren’t siding with now-removed coach Brian Flores over Tagovailoa. Many of them had issues with Flores’ antics and personality quirks, like Tagovailoa and General Manager Chris Grier did. Their troublesome relationship with Flores contributed to his firing earlier this month.

Now, some players’ issues are with the reports that the Dolphins plan to build around Tagovailoa, who finished the 2021 season with the 19th-highest passer rating (90.1) in the NFL, sandwiched between Atlanta’s Matt Ryan and Tannehill.

Most Dolphins like and respect Tagovailoa, which hasn’t always been the case with Dolphins quarterbacks. See Chad Henne and Tannehill’s career for the most recent examples.

NFL backups are always popular in locker rooms, especially with defenders when the offense struggles, and the Dolphins’ offense has struggled for most of the 21st century.

What I’m sensing, reporting, chronicling, hoping to bring to the light, is that there’s a strained relationship with Tagovailoa and his team. And for the sake of transparency, I’m admitting it is difficult to put a finger on the source.

Most of the players I talk to privately acknowledge that there is some resentment built up because Tagovailoa was hyped up as this franchise’s savior, and “he’s no savior,” as one Dolphins player puts it.

Many players felt Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was the clear-cut leader of the 2020 team that finished 10-6, had his team stolen from him when Fitzpatrick was benched for a then rookie Tagovailoa six games into the season.

Many players felt that decision, which was made by Flores and Dolphins management, hurt the team’s playoff chances that season. Although Tagovailoa didn’t push to become Miami’s starter, it strained some relationships.

His leadership style is constantly compared to Fitzpatrick’s, and that’s a losing battle.

A few players admitted that the Dolphins’ seasonlong flirtation with Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson, which excited quite a few of Tagovailoa’s teammates, affected their feelings about Tagovailoa because “Watson’s an elite quarterback now. We’re ready to win,” as one player summed up.

When Tagovailoa’s positives are pointed out — as I often do, as an admitted supporter of Tagovailoa — the rebuttal always centers on the lack of velocity of his throws.

“He can’t make every throw,” one prominent defender said before reminding me he watched Tagovailoa every day, not just on game days. “He’s only going to take us so far. I’m wasting my career here if that’s what we’re doing!”

None of these issues are new revelations or uncharted waters for the Dolphins.

I’ve heard that kind of talk privately for decades about too many quarterbacks, and here we are with two postseason appearances in 20 years.

But it warrants mentioning now because the Dolphins are embarking on a search for the team’s next head coach after seemingly making a public announcement that whoever wants Flores’ job must believe in and build an offense around Tagovailoa.

What if 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel wants to continue coaching Jimmy Garoppolo, who will likely be on the trading block this offseason. His $25 million-a-year contract expires after the 2022 season, and the 49ers traded three first-rounders and a third-rounder to the Dolphins to select Trey Lance with the third pick of last year’s draft.

Or if Dan Quinn, who spent four seasons in Seattle, could find a way to deliver perennial Pro Bowl selection Russell Wilson in a trade with the Seahawks?

Maybe Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, or Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, two more candidates, covet a quarterback in the 2022 draft class.

How about Miami’s decision-makers simply listen to each candidate’s unbiased opinions of Tagovailoa, and their game plan at quarterback before stacking the deck, potentially turning off candidates?

That is why Dolphins players would prefer it be out there that not everyone supports the organization’s stance of unwavering commitment to Tagovailoa, and that the players would prefer that he at least be given legit competition this offseason, and must win the job in a training camp battle, where a new offense is installed.

This isn’t about not believing in Tagovailoa’s future, potential and promise.

This is about ensuring that the franchise’s course, its trajectory, isn’t tied to it, and that a general manager’s desire to prove he was right on his quarterback selection two years ago doesn’t hold a team back for the rest of this decade, like some of the Dolphins’ other unwavering commitments to lackluster quarterbacks.

At 113, NAACP evolves for relevance on racial justice agenda



At 113, NAACP evolves for relevance on racial justice agenda

As the NAACP turns 113, look for its voice to grow louder on issues like climate change, the student debt crisis and the ongoing response to the coronavirus pandemic — while keeping voting rights and criminal justice reform at the forefront of its priorities.

The nation’s oldest civil rights organization’s birthday next month comes as it undergoes a restructuring to reflect a membership and leadership that is trending younger, to people in their mid-30s. As a result, it is adding endeavors like producing TV streaming content for CBS.

The hope is that younger Americans see the NAACP has modernized beyond being grandma and grandpa’s go-to civil rights hub, good for much more than voter-registration drives and the star-studded Image Awards.

“We had to reinvigorate the organization,” national president Derrick Johnson, 53, told The Associated Press.

“The changes that we have seen are absolutely necessary for the organization to exist for the next 112 or 113 years,” he added. “But more importantly, we are more targeted in our work and are driven by outcomes as opposed to output.”

The NAACP’s legacy includes the legal desegregation of schools and workplaces, crusades against lynching and racial terrorism, and pursuit of socioeconomic advancement for Black Americans. It commands the respect of U.S. presidents and Capitol Hill powerbrokers, confers with U.N. diplomats on global issues and trains future leaders through its network of thousands of state and local branches.

But in periods of NAACP history when it found itself embroiled in financial hardship and internal power struggles, the group appeared ineffective or even irrelevant. Past critics have said the NAACP was insular, too concerned with corporate funding, and not nearly nimble or progressive enough for the times.

“The best of the NAACP is when it fought for change, not as payback for Black people voting for a candidate, but because the change was demanded by the promises of the constitution, the demands of human rights and the sound morality of our deepest religious traditions,” said the Rev. William Barber II, who led the North Carolina NAACP from 2006 to 2017 before resigning to become co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign.

“Right now, the NAACP should be leaning to its better history,” Barber told the AP.

A revamped “brain trust” within its leadership is helping to better meet the needs of its membership, said NAACP chief strategy officer Yumeka Rushing. During a December national staff retreat, roughly half of those in attendance had come onboard in the prior 12 months.

‘Godspeed, Chief’; Jefferson County law enforcement mourns police chief’s death



‘Godspeed, Chief’; Jefferson County law enforcement mourns police chief’s death

ST. LOUIS (KTVI)–Law enforcement agencies around the Jefferson County region are remembering one of their own who died Thursday morning. Jefferson College Police Chief Don Riffe passed away, surrounded by loved ones, his family said. The school said he had been hospitalized for an extended period of time.

Riffe, who had been police chief at the school since July 2018, was also the primary firearms instructor at the Jefferson College Law Enforcement Academy and was active with JeffCo Shop-With-a-Cop.

“Chief Riffe had been with our organization from the start and he was instrumental in our growth. He gave so much to us with his volunteer work and financial contributions, but he never once asked for credit or anything in return. Every one of us have a great deal of love and respect for Chief Riffe, and we will all have his family in our thoughts and prayers,” Shop-With-A-Cop said in a Facebook tribute.

“On the range, Don blended technical instruction with life lessons, and helped mold an entire generation of new police officers who are collectively feeling this loss. Godspeed, Chief,” the Hillsboro Police Department said in another social media tribute.

“Any time we lose a member of the College family unexpectedly, our entire campus grieves. Don was a true professional in every sense of the word and his absence within the Jefferson College Police Department and Law Enforcement Academy will be felt by many. Our hearts go out to his family as we collectively mourn his passing,” Roger Barrentine, Director of Public Relations and Marketing for Jefferson College said in an email.

Funeral arrangements have not been announced. Riffe was 59.
