    Governor Andrew Cuomo has admitted he will consider taxing wealthy New Yorkers if the federal government doesn't provide aid - just weeks after he begged the rich to return to help save the city from economic ruin.   Facing a huge budget shortfall, Cuomo has so far resisted calls to tax the rich - many who have fled New York City amid the COVID-19 pandemic - over fears they may never return. He has now acknowledged for the first time since COVID-19 forced the city to shutdown that raising taxes might be part of the solution. Cuomo said, however, that hiking taxes on wealthy New Yorkers would be a last resort if all other aid options fell through.  New York City is currently facing a $8 billion budget deficit, which is expected to grow in the coming years. The city's economy has been devastated by the coronavirus outbreak with tens of thousands of people...
    On Wednesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci disputed Bob Woodward’s account that the National Institute of Infectious Diseases director slammed President Donald Trump over his coronavirus leadership. Fauci gave an interview to Fox News’ John Roberts shortly after Woodward’s bombshell tapes emerged of Trump acknowledging the lethality of the coronavirus were, but saying his plan was to publicly downplay it. When asked for his response, Fauci said he did not recall Trump downplay the virus as alleged, and that Trump’s remarks during coronavirus press briefings were in line with discussions among the White House’s Covid-19 task force. “He didn’t really say anything different than we discussed when we were with him. I may not be tuned in to the right thing they’re talking about. I didn’t see any discrepancies what he told us and what we told him and what he ultimately came out publicly and said.” Fauci added that...
    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has spoke out in a wide-ranging interview, saying that he hopes his social media platform does not destroy society as we know it. Asked in an interview with Axios published on Wednesday whether Facebook is accelerating social destruction, Zuckerberg replied: 'I have a little more confidence in democracy than that. And I hope my confidence isn't misplaced.'  Zuckerberg also said it is 'just wrong' to consider Facebook a right-wing echo chamber, despite conservative content frequently topping the site's lists of most popular content. He said that despite high 'engagement' with partisan content, it does not represent the majority of what people see and read on the platform.  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has spoke out in a wide-ranging interview, saying that he hopes his social media platform does not destroy society as we know it RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Tesla...
    Trump can't touch him. Impeached president Donald Trump has a problem. His numbers are in the gutter, with little hope of pulling himself out of that hole. Public opinion has solidified against him. His only chance? To pull a 2004 and drag Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s numbers down to his level. It’s what President George W. Bush did that year, mocking Democratic nominee John Kerry’s military service and Purple Heart, while making windsurfing a thing that was supposedly disqualifying. Remember that nonsense? Well, it worked.  But rather than drag Biden’s numbers down, this is happening instead:  x Civiqs Results On the day Bernie Sanders dropped out of the Democratic primary, Biden’s favorables were 38-53. They are 44-50 today, a full nine net points higher. And the numbers aren’t just going up among Democrats, but independents as well, up a net 10 points. This is going all wrong for Trump! And really, he bears much of the...
    “If necessary, I will,” said Mr. Trump, questioned by reporters before boarding Air Force One for Florida. “We absolutely have to win,” added the real estate mogul who has always refused to publish his tax returns and whose personal fortune is shrouded in a thick mystery. “Joe (Biden) doesn’t have the strength, he doesn’t have the mental abilities,” he continued. Earlier, the tenant of the White House had defended the significant expenses incurred by her campaign team in the spring and early summer, despite polls still unfavorable eight weeks before the poll. “My campaign team spent a lot of money in the beginning to thwart false stories and fake news regarding our handling of the Chinese virus,” he tweeted.
    Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” that power had gone to President Donald Trump’s head, causing him to want to be “president of this country for life.” Maddow asked, “Over time, do you feel like his sentience has declined, in what you described in him spelling or the way that he speaks or sometimes has trouble with words. Is he as —has that changed over time? Is he the same person that speaks now that you recognize working with him for all those years?” Cohen said, “He’s not the same person that I knew going back years ago. He was always gruff. He was always a certain way, but the power that he now has has gone to his head. He wants to be an autocrat. He wants to be the president of this country for life.” He continued, “He wants to be...
    Donald Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, said that the president “doesn’t have a sense of humor” and isn’t joking when he has repeatedly hinted at staying past two terms. During an hour-long interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, the convicted felon said that, in his opinion, the president’s mental faculties have eroded during his nearly four years in office and that Trump really would prefer to rule the country in perpetuity. Throughout his first term, Trump has often suggested that he might run past 2024, despite being constitutionally limited to two consecutive terms in the White House. “Over time, do you feel like his sentience has declined, in what you described in him spelling or the way that he speaks or sometimes has trouble with words,” Maddow asked, alluding to the fact that his mental and physical capabilities — as well as his 2020 rival Joe Biden’s — have become...
    A former White House stenographer who's actively pro-Trump said in an interview out Tuesday that Joe Biden, the 77-year-old Democratic nominee, has 'lost a step' since leaving office when President Trump took over. 'It is a complete difference from what he was in 2017,' ex-stenographer Mike McCormick told the Washington Free Beacon. 'He's lost a step and he doesn't seem to have the same mental acuity as he did four years ago.'  McCormick is the author of the self-published tome, 'Joe Biden Unauthorized: And the 2020 Crackup of the Democratic Party,' which was released in March, the second of two pro-Trump books he's written since leaving the stenographers office in January 2018.   A former White House stenographer told the Washington Free Beacon in an interview out Tuesday that Democratic nominee Joe Biden (pictured) has 'lost a step' and 'doesn't seem to have the same mental acuity' as he did when...

    Joe Biden’s former White House stenographer said the vice president’s public speaking ability has deteriorated significantly since leaving office to the point where he’s "not the same Joe Biden." "It is a complete difference from what he was in 2017," Mike McCormick, who worked as a White House stenographer for 15 years and with Biden from 2011 to 2017, told the Washington Free Beacon in an interview. "He’s lost a step and he doesn’t seem to have the same mental acuity as he did four years ago."

    DONALD Trump says he is against schools teaching the 1619 Project as it looks to "change history" and that he "doesn't believe in cancel culture". The New York Times' 1619 Project is a Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of essays and photos that argues the United States was born in 1619, not 1776. 2Donald Trump says he is against schools teaching the New York Times' 1619 projectCredit: Rex Features 2The President said schools who taught the project would be defunded Trump was asked about the project reportedly being incorporated into lesson plans in California schools. The President said: "I want everybody to know everything they can about our history. I am not a believer in cancel culture, the good or the bad, if you don't study the bad it could happen again. So I do want that subject studied very carefully and accurately. "But we grew up with a certain history and...
    IT WAS non-stop laughs when Jeremy Clarkson was on the BBC – hosting a motoring programme, not a stand-up show. But he, like millions of Brits, thinks his old stomping ground has become too obsessed with being PC and not enough with making us chuckle. 10Jeremy Clarkson thinks the BBC has become too obsessed with being PCCredit: ITV New BBC Director-General Tim Davie is to target comedy shows that are often seen as too left-wing in a bid to restore trust and confidence in the organisation.

    Fox News’ Howard Kurtz said Sunday that President Donald Trump needs to stop trying to “cancel” journalists because of critical reporting. Trump called for Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin to be fired after she reported that she spoke with two officials who confirmed key details of the Atlantic report about the president’s alleged remarks disparaging fallen soldiers. On MediaBuzz Sunday, Kurtz noted Griffin’s reporting confirming some details and called out the president for his attacks on journalists generally: “President Trump has called for Jennifer Griffin to be fired. This is one of the fairest, most conscientious reporters on the planet, a former war correspondent, has done this throughout various administrations. And she wasn’t offering opinion. She was doing her job. It’s fine for the president to attack the story. But he really needs to stop trying to cancel journalists based on reporting he doesn’t like.” The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway, meanwhile,...
    Trump doesn't have a fiddle. He'd rather golf as everything around him burns. Donald Trump’s campaign is broke, being forced to go off the air in key battlegrounds, including the entire state of must-win Arizona.  Donald Trump is losing, with even Fox News polling showing him lagging in key must-win states, including the aforementioned Arizona (which Joe Biden lads 49-40).

    Moscow - A former United States Marine was sentenced to nine years in prison in a Russian court on Thursday for assaulting police officers in a drunken incident he says he cannot remember. Trevor Reed, a 29-year-old from Texas, alleges the charges against him were fabricated.  He is the second former U.S. Marine to be handed a lengthy prison sentence in Moscow in less than two months. Reed was found guilty of causing "mental and physical harm" to two police officers while drunk after a birthday party in Moscow last August. He pleaded not guilty and said that such a harsh sentence makes him think his trial was "completely political." His lawyers said it was the harshest sentence ever handed down for that charge in Russia.

    After The Atlantic reported on Thursday that Donald Trump had privately trashed American war dead as “suckers” and “losers,” the White House, the president’s 2020 campaign, and a broad array of Trump loyalists activated to aggressively denounce the report as fictitious and absurd.  In The Daily Beast’s interviews with eleven senior administration officials, Trump aides, Republican operatives, and former and current friends of the president, several of them mounted a curious defense of Trump. Yes, they admitted, the commander in chief at times makes callous, tone-deaf comments about American military personnel behind closed doors. But it’s because he hates the wars they’re forced to fight, not the service members themselves. “The president means no disrespect to our troops; it’s just that the way he speaks, he can sound like an asshole sometimes,” one of these sources, a current senior administration official, told The Daily Beast. “That’s how he is [when...
    Chris Jericho was a guest on a recent episode of Busted Open Radio. During the conversation, he opened up about his feelings toward Orange Cassidy ahead of their match at the All Out pay-per-view this weekend. According to Jericho, his opinion of the rising AEW star has changed since he got to know him. As quoted by WrestlingNews.co, Jericho was initially against the company signing Cassidy. He admitted that he didn’t understand his gimmick at first. Over time, however, he warmed to the star and eventually found himself excited to work with him. “Orange is a guy that when I first saw him and heard about him, I wasn’t happy about it. I thought it was a joke. I wasn’t impressed. Then when I pulled my head out of my rear end, I realized this guy is over. It doesn’t matter why. He is doing something different. He is unique....
    Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) said Friday on CNN’s “Newsroom” that President Donald Trump uses the military for his ego and does not understand their sacrifice while reacting to The Atlantic article claiming the president said Americans who died in war were “losers” and “suckers.” Duckworth said, “We all know this is exactly Donald Trump. This is who he is. People know the story is accurate because he’s consistently said these things over the years and continues to act in a way where he likes to use the military for his own personal ego as if we were some sort of toy soldiers you could pull out and line up on your desk to play with.” “But he really doesn’t understand the sacrifice,” she continued. “And he truly doesn’t understand what it means to put something above yourself too, serve this nation and be willing to lay down one’s life with this nation. Because he does...
    Joe Biden said Friday that hes been tested at least once for the COVID-19 virus and promised he will be tested regularly during his general election campaign against President Donald Trump. The Democratic presidential nominee told reporters of his testing protocol during a wide-ranging news conference in which he blasted Trump for downplaying the coronavirus and thus ensuring that it will continue to kill Americans and ravage the economy. For much of the summer, Bidens advisers deflected questions about whether the former vice president was being tested himself as he anchored his campaign almost exclusively from his Delaware home, traveling sparingly as a precaution. “They’re going to do it on a regular basis,” Biden said of the testing. He noted that the Secret Service agents assigned to protect him and “everyone” else who comes into his home is tested already. Biden said he didn’t know specifically when his next test...

    Joshua Powell, pictured being interview by ABC, is breaking ranks with the NRA to support claims made by New York's AG that leaders misused funds  A former NRA insider who is being sued along with others with misappropriating funds has spoken openly of how its leaders are corrupt to promote his new book.  Josh Powell has been accused along with Wayne LaPierre, the association's president, of allegedly misusing funds from donors to support their lavish lifestyles. New York's Attorney General, Letitia James, filed the lawsuit earlier this month, vowing to bring an end to 'decades' of abuse.  The NRA claims it is a politically-motivated move to try to cripple Trump's election chances and starve the Republican party of funds. Powell is, at the same time, releasing a book to accuse LaPierre and others in charge at the NRA of misconduct.  He was LaPierre's chief of staff but has broken ranks...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s statement that President Trump would need an army to protect himself from New Yorkers is “hypocritical,” Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee said on Thursday. “Cuomo who when he gets what he wants, he’s just loving on Trump. But then it is the election, he’s going to play the role of the bad guy, the Democrat who is out there supporting Biden, so, now he is trashing the very president that he praised and the very president that reached out and helped him and helped New York,” the former governor of Arkansas told “Fox & Friends.” NYC COUNCIL MEMBER: IF CUOMO, DE BLASIO GET THEIR WAY TAXES WILL STAY ASTRONOMICALLY HIGH Cuomo responded Wednesday night after President Trump threatened to pull federal funding from New York City ‒ as well as from Washington, D.C.; Seattle, and Portland, Ore. ‒ as part of an effort to target “anarchist jurisdictions.” “He can’t have enough bodyguards to...

    Chris Carlson-Pool/Getty Images President Donald Trump is likely to win the Electoral College in the presidential election as long he does not lose the popular vote to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by more than 3 percent, pollster Nate Silver said Wednesday. “You’ll sometimes see people say stuff like ‘Biden MUST with the popular vote by 3 points or he’s toast,'” Silver wrote on Twitter. “Not true; at 2-3 points, the Electoral College is a tossup, not necessarily a Trump win. “The Electoral College is not really *safe* for Biden unless he wins by 5+.” Chance of a Biden Electoral college win if he wins the popular vote by X points: 0-1 points: just 6%! 1-2 points: 22% 2-3 points: 46% 3-4 points: 74% 4-5 points: 89% 5-6 points: 98% 6-7 points: 99% — Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) September 2, 2020 The FiveThirtyEight editor in chief added that Biden holds a 6 percent chance...
    No one wanted the president to go to Kenosha. Not the governor of Wisconsin, Tony Evers. Not the mayor of Kenosha, John Antaramin. And probably not a majority of Kenoshans. And so Donald Trump decided that the only thing that made sense was for him to go to Kenosha. Look, Trump was coming off a grueling weekend of golf and tweeting. He needed to do something. And what better way to not ease racial tension than for President George Wallace, I mean Donald J. Trump, to go to Kenosha. Trump doesn't really understand how to be president, but he also doesn’t really understand how to pretend to be president. It's like he’s never seen an episode of The West Wing or even Veep. Trump knows he needs to win Wisconsin in order to stay president and not go to jail, but since Trump doesn’t really understand what the president does,...
    Vice President Mike Pence has said that he doesn't recall being asked to go on standby to assume the presidency during President Donald Trump's unannounced visit to Walter Reed Medical Center in November, after reports emerged this week that Trump was suffering from mini-strokes at the time.

'I was informed that the president had a doctor's appointment, [but] I've got to tell you, part of this job is you are always on standby if you are Vice President of the United States.' The vice president also insisted that the 'American people can be confident that this president is in remarkable good health, and every single day I see that energy.'  Trump's unusual visit to Walter Reed resurfaced in the news this week, when New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt claimed in an...

    President Trump is once again threatening to send more federal enforcement to Portland amid ongoing demonstrations in the city.  In a tweet sent out late Friday night, the Commander-in-Chief wrote: 'If the incompetent Mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, doesn't get control of his city and stop the Anarchists, Agitators, Rioters and Looters, causing great danger to innocent people, we will go in and take care of matters the way they should have been taken care of 100 days ago!'

    Stephen Colbert opened his show Wednesday night with a confession. “Now, full disclosure: I did not watch much of the convention tonight. And fullest disclosure: I did not watch any of it,” the Late Show host said. “Because right now in America, we’re facing a global pandemic that has killed 180,000 Americans, heavily-armed Rambo wannabes are murdering people in our streets, the strongest hurricane in the history of the gulf coast is making landfall as I speak, and the RNC’s message is: Who’s up for four more years?” “I know by not watching the RNC I didn’t do my job tonight. And I just want to say: I feel great about it,” Colbert continued. “Why should we pay attention to what they’re saying if none of what they’re saying tonight is about what’s happening in America right now?

    "Biden has pledged to defund the police," the president's son, Eric Trump, claimed boldly on Tuesday night. Some progressive activists have suggested redirecting funds used currently by local governments on police to other programs, specifically in response to a spate of racist police shootings of Black Americans. Those calls have typically focused on shifting funding to community social services instead and limiting police budgets, in order to prevent overpolicing and burdening law enforcement with unrealistic responsibilities. But Biden has been explicit in his opposition to defunding law enforcement. "While I do not believe federal dollars should go to police departments violating people's rights or turning to violence as the first resort, I do not support defunding police," Biden wrote in June. Even the typically Trump-friendly Fox News has had to debunk Trump's false claims on this topic. On July 16, Trump campaign press secretary Hogan Gidley told the network, "You...

You know, somebody recently asked me how many gays and lesbians work in the Trump administration. I had to answer, ‘I have no idea.

    DeAndra Dycus, an Indiana mom, gives a compelling speech on gun control at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday. The mother of an academically gifted, two-sport athlete who nearly lost his life after being shot in the head at a birthday party gave a gripping speech pushing for gun control Wednesday at the Democratic National Convention. DeAndra Dycus said her son, DeAndre, who is now living with quadriplegia, will never be the same but President Donald Trump simply “doesn’t care” about families like hers. "In a split second a stray bullet shattered my family's life," Dycus said. "My son DeAndre was only 13-years-old. He was recognized as a gifted and talented student. His possibilities were endless.” The mother said her son was dancing when he was shot in the back left side of his head, “shattering his skull ... One shot changed our lives forever,” Dycus said. “Today Andre does not talk. He does not walk. I...
    She added, "President Trump — he doesn't care. He didn't care about the victims after Parkland, Las Vegas, or El Paso. I want a president who cares about our pain and grief, a president who will take on the gun lobby to ban assault weapons and close the loopholes to keep guns out of the hands of criminals." Despite promising to address gun violence following several mass shootings in 2019, Trump has done virtually nothing to reduce the problem. In August 2019, after deadly mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, Trump announced a bipartisan push to "truly make America safer" and ensure the victims "will not have died in vain." "We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process," Trump said...
    WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised the supporters of QAnon, a convoluted, pro-Trump conspiracy theory, and suggested he appreciates their support of his candidacy. Trump insisted he hadn't heard much about the movement, "other than I understand they like me very much" and "it is gaining in popularity." Speaking during a news conference at the White House, Trump courted the support of those who put stock in the conspiracy theory, saying, "I heard that these are people that love our country." It was Trump's first public comment on the subject and continued a pattern of president appearing unwilling to resoundingly condemn extremists who support his candidacy. QAnon has ricocheted around the darker corners of the internet since late 2017 but has been creeping into mainstream politics more and more. The baseless theory centers on an alleged anonymous, high-ranking government official known as "Q" who shares information about...
    On Fox News’ Special Report, Karl Rove called out President Donald Trump for not condemning the QAnon movement. Trump was asked during Wednesday’s briefing about his supporters who believe in the conspiracy theory that he is “secretly saving the world from this Satanic cult of pedophiles and cannibals.” Trump initially responded by saying he doesn’t know much about it except that they like him a lot, and when told exactly what the conspiracy is, he added, “I haven’t heard that. Is that supposed to be a bad thing or a good thing?” Bret Baier brought up the subject with his panel, saying, “They believe that the president is secretly fighting a cabal of child sex predators, including prominent Democrats.” “Do you think he answered that well?” Baier asked. Axios’ Jonathan Swan called it a “very odd answer” and said, “I thought it was a pretty easy lay-up to condemn...
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he doesn't know much about the QAnon conspiracy theory movement but understands it is gaining in popularity and likes him. QAnon followers espouse an intertwined series of beliefs based on anonymous web postings from someone claiming special insider knowledge of the Trump administration. The core tenet is that Trump is secretly fighting a cabal of child-sex predators including prominent Democrats.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said he does not think the government will require people to get coronavirus inoculations. “I don’t think you'll ever see a mandating of vaccine particularly for the general public,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Tuesday during an interview with Healthline. Fauci added that he would “be pretty surprised if you mandated it for any element of the general public.” A Gallup poll conducted between late July and early August found that only 65% of all U.S. adults would take an FDA-approved vaccine for COVID-19, while 35% of people said they would not. Among Democrats, 81% said they would get the vaccine while less than half of Republicans said the same. Fauci said he doesn’t think there is really anything the United States can do about people who refuse to get vaccinated during the health crisis. ...

    Dear Amy: My husband and I (married 26 years) really treasure our neighbors. We are close friends. They are about 10 years older than us, in their mid-60s.

They are among the only people we socialize with right now (outdoor BYOB cocktails with distance). A few weeks ago, the husband dropped by to bring cucumbers, and he hit on me: “Miss you. I’d like to kiss your whole face for about an hour.” I shut it down, “Yeah, that’s not going to happen.” Obviously, he’s never done anything like this before.

    Meaghan Ellis August 17, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump is accusing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of avoiding the media and refusing to take questions. During a phone interview on “Fox & Friends” Monday, Trump was asked about the critical stance on campaign etiquette that suggests election candidates refrain from campaigning during opposing party conventions. According to Trump, he has “no choice” but to campaign due to the “fake media in this country.” He also criticized Biden as he insisted that the former vice president “doesn’t come out of his basement” and “hasn’t taken one question.” Trump insisted he is regularly confronted by reporters who have “fire coming out of their eyes.” He added, “Somebody like Biden, he doesn’t know what to do. He doesn’t come out because he can’t. He doesn’t take any questions from reporters. I keep saying to my people, ‘Here I am getting...
    President Trump slammed Bill de Blasio as a 'communist fool' who has destroyed New York City on Monday morning, as more and more residents flee for good and say they'll likely never return because the city may never recover. Many fled New York in March, when it was the epicenter of the pandemic, with the intention of returning when things began reopening.    But as the lockdown dragged on, forcing hundreds of businesses to close their doors, and as businesses survived with a remote workforce, many abandoned their apartment leases permanently for more spacious homes in different states.  In recent weeks, crime has shot up and homelessness is spreading across the city.  The NYPD's largest union - the Sergeants Benevolent Association - has taken the unorthodox step of formally endorsing Trump because cops are so frustrated with de Blasio's handling of the city.  In June, he stripped the NYPD of $1billion...

    What a disappointment Kamala Harris is, not to the progressives who are falling in line if not in love, but to Donald Trump, who has no strong women around him and knows little about the type, except that he can’t really stand them. As late as Sunday night returning from his two hundredth and something golfing day, Trump believed the veep choice would be Spyin’ Susan Rice, or Kuba Kommunist Karen Bass, easy for him to reduce to avatars of the radical left out to destroy the suburbs, defund the police, raise taxes, turn cities into killing fields, and put kale on the lunch menu at schools if those face-covered, socially distancing Democrats ever agree to open them.  In a pinch, for Harris, he dredged up meanie (to his people and to Joe Biden, no less), power-hungry (she broke the last glass ceiling on open ambition), and, his fallback insult...

    Tim Warner/Getty Images Matthew McConaughey isn’t currently planning to run for governor of Texas, despite a National Enquirer report claiming the actor is actively pursuing the position. Friends of the star tell Mediaite “while he would be great in the role, right now it’s just speculation.” The Enquirer, however, would have its readers believe that McConaughey is officially quitting Hollywood for a career in politics. That’s simply not the case. An unknown source tells the Enquirer, “His world has been rocked by the pandemic and civil unrest in America, and it’s triggered a desire in him to leap into action.” This might be true, but McConaughey doesn’t need to take office to lend a helping hand in his home state of Texas, where he currently lives with his wife, Camila Alves, and their three kids. After all, the Texas gubernatorial election doesn’t take place until November 2022. How exactly would...
    Joe Biden torched President Trump for opposing the United States Postal Service funding as the White House and Congress remain at loggerheads over another coronavirus economic relief package. “Pure Trump. He doesn’t want an election," Biden told reporters in Delaware on Thursday morning.

That proposal would provide $25 billion to the Postal Service and $3.5 billion in election assistance to states. "They want $3.5 billion for something that will turn out to be fraudulent," the president told Fox Business. "That’s election money, basically. They want $3.5 billion for the mail-in votes. ... They want $25 billion, billion, for the post office. Now, they need that money in order to have the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots." Trump...
    President Donald Trump said Thursday he's blocking the coronavirus relief measure because of Democrats' funding request for the Post Office, arguing it's 'election money' for universal mail-in voting. 'Now, they need that money in order to make the Post Office work, so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots,' Trump said in an interview with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo.  Democrats have put $25 billion for emergency funding for the Post Office in their $3 trillion version of the coronavirus relief legislation - money that President Trump opposes.  'That's election money basically,' he told Bartiromo.  'If they don't get those two items, that means you can't have universal mail-in voting,' he explained of both the Post Office funding and the overall Democratic top line number of $3 trillion.

Police say he incited disorder and have charged him with riot and disorderly conduct. On Smithfield Street in May, police lobbed tear gas and protestors lobbed the canisters back. Then a police officer shot bean bag projectiles into the crowd. The 28-year-old from Morningside lost permanent sight in his right eye that day.

Horell will be fitted with a prosthesis on Wednesday, but on Tuesday he was arraigned on charges of riot, disorderly conduct and failure to disperse — even...
    Melanie McFarland August 11, 2020 10:50PM (UTC) Hating on Chuck Todd is easy 'cause he's terrible. That's the general consensus at which Twitter has arrived about the MSNBC host and "Meet the Press" moderator. And at the risk of arousing the rage of the social media mob, it's not quite fair. Instead, I think it's more accurate to say that Todd is the poster model for journalistic ineptitude. His claim to fame may be his inability to push back on fallacious claims and outright lies, but he's far from alone in that. The White House press corps struggles to push back on a lot of this administration's unfounded claims, or has given up trying.  : It's just that Todd is the most recognizable face of this industry-wide failure. This explains the grave dancing in response to the recently announced changes in MSNBC's schedule, expanding Nicolle Wallace's 4 p.m. "Deadline White...
    A new ad from the Lincoln Project takes President Donald Trump to task for the looming eviction crisis that is facing millions of Americans who cannot afford to pay rent in the wake of the COVID pandemic-induced recession. “It’s moving day for 25 million Americans,” the ad states. “Not by choice — but because the Trump evictions are starting soon.” The ad goes on to accuse Trump of “wrecking” the economy with his negligent handling of the coronavirus pandemic, and then said he wouldn’t even support extending the monthly $600 enhanced unemployment benefits that have helped keep families afloat. “The man in [the White House] doesn’t give a damn if you lose yours,” the ad concludes. “On November 3rd, remember: It’s America or Trump.” Watch the video below. Very soon, it’s going to be moving day for 25 million Americans. The #TrumpEvictions are beginning. pic.twitter.com/5ai3UV0PbF — The Lincoln...

    A group of over 100 Black male leaders is declaring that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden “has” to name a Black woman as his running mate. In a letter made public on Monday, the signatories warned the former vice president that “failing to select a Black woman in 2020 means you will lose the election.” WATERS SAYS BIDEN 'CAN'T GO HOME WITHOUT BLACK WOMAN BEING VP' And pointing to the intense scrutiny some of the running mate contenders have endured in recent weeks, the group wrote that it “disgusts us that Black women are not just being vetted in this VP process but unfairly criticized and scrutinized.” The letter's co-signers – which include actors, musicians, entertainers, radio hosts, filmmakers, academics, politicians, lawyers, athletes, pastors, business leaders, restaurateurs and activists – emphasized that they “stand in solidarity” with more than 700 Black women who last week signed a letter demanding that Biden choose...

    White House trade adviser Peter Navarro pushed for hydroxychloroquine on CNN Wednesday night in a wild interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett, despite previous statements by public health officials — including the president’s own testing czar — saying they can’t recommend it as a treatment. Immediately after the Navarro interview, Burnett brought on Dr. Jonathan Reiner, former Bush White House medical adviser and current CNN medical analyst, to respond. And Reiner immediately unloaded on Navarro for speaking outside his area of expertise: “No one should care what I think about economic or trade policy because, to use Mr. Navarro’s words, that’s not my lane. And I don’t give a damn what thinks about clinical trials evaluating this agent because he’s not qualified to have an opinion.” “Five randomized clinical trials show the drug doesn’t work,” he continued. “You don’t get to have an opinion about science. You only get to...
    Michael Ciaglo/Getty For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.To everyone working tirelessly around the world to hold together splintering democracies, I have a question: Why do people keep asking Donald Trump if he’ll “accept” the outcome of the election? I’m 46 years old and can’t remember any time we’ve asked this of any candidate for any office. I’m not an elections expert or a constitutional scholar, and I know that Trump’s obstinance and possessiveness are dangerously real, but I’m 100 percent sure the election results aren’t up to him. They’re not his to “accept.” Just like with kids and ice cream. If I ask my 8-year-old every day for months, “Will you get upset if I don’t buy you ice cream on November 3?” and, in the way of children, she answers, “I don’t know. Maybe I will,” I know I’ve already lost....
    CNN’s Jim Acosta must have struck a nerve with President Donald Trump. Trump angrily denied Acosta’s reporting that some members of the president’s coronavirus task force were alarmed that Trump kept trying to change the subject during Tuesday’s meeting about the deadly pandemic, and sources familiar with the White House meeting feared he still doesn’t understand the gravity of the situation. “He still doesn’t get it,” the source said. “He does not get it.” As some members of the task force tried to stress the dire nature of the situation to the president during the meeting, the source said Trump repeatedly attempted to change the subject. “He starts talking about something else,” the source said. — Jim Acosta (@Acosta) August 5, 2020 Trump angrily lashed out a short time later. “CNN has no sources on the Task Force,” Trump tweeted. “Their ‘sources’ are made up, pure...
    For Joe Biden, these are the best of days. Riding high in the polls, he has a long list of Democrats scrambling to be his running mate, while others offer themselves for plum Cabinet posts. Media supporters are so confident of his victory that they are coming out of the woodwork to advise him to skip the three presidential debates. Somewhere, some member of the Deep State is probably sneaking around the White House, measuring the curtains. HANNITY CLAIMS DEMS HAVE 'GOOD REASON' FOR WANTING BIDEN TO AVOID DEBATES: EX-VP IS A 'MASSIVE LIABILITY' It is an astonishing turnabout for the vice president. Recall that his best debate performances were mediocre, and he did so badly in the first primaries that going into South Carolina, the smart money said he had to win big or go home. Yet here he is, with a comfortable lead over Donald Trump — and almost exactly...
    If presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden does not debate President Trump, the American people will be the ones cheated, Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee told "America's Newsroom" Tuesday. Prominent liberals, including former Clinton White House press secretary Joe Lockhart in a recent CNN op-ed, are urging Biden to skip debating Trump prior to the November election, which Huckabee says is just "wrong." CNN'S BRIAN STELTER RIDICULED FOR CLAIMING 'RIGHT-WING MEDIA TEMPEST' IS BEHIND PUSH FOR BIDEN NOT TO DEBATE TRUMP "Of course they need to have the debates and I cannot imagine that for any reason Joe Biden would decide he would stay down in his hidey-hole and not get on the stage," Huckabee told co-host Sandra Smith. "I've been on the debate stage with President Trump when he was a candidate and you never know what's going to happen. It's truly, as Forrest Gump said, like a box of chocolates. You never know what you'll get." "If [Biden] doesn't, I think he forfeited the right to be president," the former Republican...

     Late-night hosts Seth Meyers and Jimmy Fallon roasted President Donald Trump for his threat to ban TikTok, a popular social media app and home to many Generation Z dancers. Meyers guessed that he doesn’t even know what the app is while Fallon questioned whether he’s the president or the preacher from Footloose who outlawed dancing. Before mocking Trump for banning the social media app, Meyers went off on Jared Kushner for his “evil” and “stupid” coronavirus plan. According to a Vanity Fair report, a member of Kushner’s team suggested shelving a national testing plan in the Spring because only blue states were being hit hard by the virus at the time — noting it would be an effective strategy to blame Democratic governors for the pandemic. “I guess it’s not surprising to learn that Jared Kushner is a sociopath,” Meyers said. “I mean, look at him. He looks like Hannibal Lecter in a CW reboot of Silence of the...
    DONALD Trump bashed the late civil rights icon John Lewis and said that he "doesn't know him" and slammed him for missing his inauguration.
