Chris Core’s naughty or nice list for 2019

FILE - In this Nov. 2, 2019, file photo, Washington Nationals pitcher and World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg, center, celebrates the World Series baseball championship during a rally following a parade to celebrate the team's World Series baseball championship over Houston Astros, in Washington. Nationals right fielder Gerardo Parra is right and pitcher Anibal Sanchez, left. World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg is staying with the Washington Nationals. The right-hander has agreed to a record $245 million, seven-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Monday, Dec. 9, 2019. The person spoke on condition of anonymity at baseball's annual winter meetings because the agreement had not been announced. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, File)
Nice: A Washington baseball team winning the World Series for the first time in 95 years! (BTW: Anthony Rendon WTF? How much money do you need? You got a ring in Washington. Arrrgghhh).  (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, File) (AP/Jose Luis Magana)

Naughty: The Redskins, of course. Although they haven’t really been bad for 95 years, it only seems like it. The problem is just when you think they have reached their low point, they find a way to get worse. Can Strasburg play Quarterback? (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky) (AP/Patrick Semansky)
This image shows Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s page in his 1984 Eastern Virginia Medical School yearbook. The page shows a picture, at right, of a person in blackface and another wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood next to different pictures of the governor. It's unclear who the people in the picture are, but the rest of the page is filled with pictures of Northam and lists his undergraduate alma mater and other information about him.

Naughty: Virginia Governor Northam and the rest of the Virginia politicians who thought it was perfectly acceptable to appear in and be photographed in blackface. What on earth were you thinking? Well, apparently NOT thinking. Too bad you didn’t have the decency to resign. (Eastern Virginia Medical School via AP) (AP)
FILE - In this March 3, 2019, file photo, Black Lives Matter demonstrator waves a flag on the Edmund Pettus Bridge during the Bloody Sunday commemoration in Selma, Ala. Majorities of Americans across racial lines say white people are treated more fairly than black people by the police, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The dynamic has played out in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement, which began in 2014 with the fatal shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown by white, former Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson.

Nice: The Black Lives Matter movement for making it even more obvious why what Governor Northam did was offensive and tone-deaf. (AP Photo/Julie Bennett, File) (AP/Julie Bennett)
Immigrants from Haiti recover their belongings from the rubble in their destroyed homes, in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian in Abaco, Bahamas, Monday, Sept. 16, 2019. Dorian hit the northern Bahamas on Sept. 1, with sustained winds of 185 mph (295 kph), unleashing flooding that reached up to 25 feet (8 meters) in some areas. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)

In this Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017, photo, Roberto Clemente State Park employees re-stack cases of bottled water on a pallet after they were donated for the Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort for Puerto Rico, in New York. Hurricane Maria has devastated Puerto Rico. Local and international charities, as well as online nonprofits, are raising money to help the island recover. Residents are still largely without power and food and water are scarce. While the urge to donate clothes and other supplies is natural, money is the best way to contribute during times of disaster, charities and philanthropy experts say. (AP Photo/Julie Jacobson)
Nice: The millions of Americans touched by Dorian and other natural disasters in California and the Midwest who dug down deep to help out. Sometimes it takes the worst to bring out best. (AP Photo/Julie Jacobson) (AP/Julie Jacobson)

Nice: Amazon for choosing our area to be their second national headquarters. This will create lots of jobs and further stimulate the already robust Washington economy even more.
In this Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2017, photo, employees work at the Amazon Fulfillment center in Robbinsville Township, N.J. Amazon is holding a giant job fair Wednesday, Aug. 2, and plans to make thousands of job offers on the spot at nearly a dozen U.S. warehouses. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
Naughty: Amazon for allegedly treating its fulfillment center employees so poorly. In March, The Daily Beast reported suicides and hunger strikes by Amazon warehouse employees. Come on, Jeff, play nice. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez) (AP/Julio Cortez)

FILE - In this Sept. 19, 2019, file photo, Democratic presidential candidate former Maryland Rep. John Delaney speaks during the Climate Forum at Georgetown University in Washington. Democratic presidential candidates are trying to lure donors to their campaigns through free trips, raffles and tickets as they work to stay afloat in the crowded field. Delaney is giving away a trip for two to join in him in Washington for Game 4 of the World Series (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, File)
Naughty: The 975 or so Democrats who decided to run for president this year. Look, I know it’s a cool job that comes with free housing and your own plane, but really, John Delaney, did you honestly think you were going to win? (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, File) (AP/Jose Luis Magana)
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., reacts as she speaks at a town hall event at the Culinary Workers Union, Friday, Nov. 8, 2019, in Las Vegas. (AP Photo/John Locher)
Nice: The handful of Democrats who already have dropped out of the presidential race before even a single vote has been cast. Thinning the political herd is definitely a Core Value! (AP Photo/John Locher) (AP/John Locher)
