Joe Biden’s dog Major, after barking incessantly during the final round of the Masters got the “Trump” treatment. “Will you shut up, man!” … North Korea pulled out of the Summer Games. Instead it will concentrate on infrastructure, hate crimes and long-range missiles … and who was happier? Mayor de Blasio riding the Cyclone roller coaster at Coney Island, pretending New York is back? Or Sam Darnold learning he is trading in his Jet green for Panther blue after New York didn’t have his back?
