    Judge Merrick Garland, President Joe Biden’s attorney general pick, declined to get into details on Monday about the COVID-19 nursing home disaster that plagued New York following Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s mandate. Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy asked Garland how he would have handled COVID-19 had he been chief judge when the pandemic began. Kennedy wondered if he “would have adopted a rule that” deemed it “discriminatory” to ask someone to take a COVID-19 test to return to work after the individual went to the hospital for the virus and was treated and released. Garland said “no,” he would not have adopted that rule. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Fox News’ Janice Dean Slams ‘Liberal Media,’ Says They Played Role In Covering For Gov.

    An old challenge that the Tutu interpreter made revealed his ignorance about the queen of Tex-Mex. In pop culture, the name Selena Quintanilla continues. For those who are dedicated to music in Latin America, his legacy is something that they tend to constantly recognize. However, there are some exceptions to the rule for whom their name does not say much. This was the case of Camilo, who at the end of 2020 underwent a challenge that made it clear that he does not know the queen of Tex-Mex. Having to guess what song he was listening to, Camilo, extremely sorry, said he had no idea. The team gave her a second chance and to her amazement there was no way for Evaluna’s husband to know who it was. The comments from Selena Quintanilla fans have not been long in coming.

    Reuters February 6, 2021 0 Comments U.S. President Joe Biden said in an interview released on Friday he does not expect his proposal for a hike in the minimum wage to $15 an hour to be included in his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill because of Senate rules. “My guess is it will not be in it. But I do think that we should have a minimum wage, stand by itself, $15 an hour,” Biden said in an interview with the CBS Evening News. Increasing the minimum wage may run afoul of Senate rules on reconciliation, a tool Democrats plan to use to pass Biden’s coronavirus relief bill without Republican support in the closely divided Senate. Biden said he would be prepared to negotiate the wage rise separately and the increase could be phased in. “No one should work 40 hours a week and live below the poverty wage....
    New York : Selena quintanilla She is one of the singers who unfortunately became much more famous after her death and really became very famous all over the world, not only in Mexico or Texas, where she was from, but in several countries and especially in Latin America, although it seems that someone came to confirm that their songs did not reach their country. Well, during an interview, the Colombian singer Camilo Echeverry he had to guess the singers who were playing in one of the dynamics that they did to him, to liven up the conversation; if he was wrong, he had to answer ‘a secret question’. So when the moment came when Selena began to be heard, Camilo did not know who she was and said: “No, I do not know who it is. No idea, I never heard it ”. But that was not all, when...
    Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin on Tuesday said he does not support a $15 minimum wage. Manchin was asked by The Hill if he would support raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, something many Democrats have said they are in favor of, to which Manchin responded by saying: “No I’m not. I’m supportive of basically having something that’s responsible and reasonable.” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) speaks to reporters in the Senate subway following a vote at the U.S. Capitol on February 2, 2021 in Washington, DC.

    A Belarusian model who claims her Texan tycoon ex-husband still owes her £5.7million is preparing for another round of their long-running High Court battle.  Alesia Vladimirovna Haskell, 40, began legal action against Preston Haskell IV, 54, in 2016 after their marriage collapsed due to his unfaithfulness and 'abuse of cocaine and alcohol', a top family judge said. US-born Mr Haskell was ordered to shell out about £5.7million to the mother of his three children, paid in installments, in early 2020. Mr Haskell claimed at the time that he had nothing to give his ex-wife as he owed £55million to others - and was only getting by due to bail-outs from his super-rich father.   But the judge said Mr Haskell was enjoying a high standard of living and it was 'bordering on the grotesque' for him to have asked his wife to sell her £100,000 engagement ring to pay for her upkeep. ...

    President Biden is bearing down on a national crisis that could make radical policy acceptable to the public, but Senate guardrails are in the way. Two Senate Democrats struck a blow to Biden’s liberal agenda by vowing this week to uphold the legislative filibuster. Those promises seem to have kneecapped liberal calls to nuke the longtime Senate rule that requires most bills to pass 60 votes. The senators were adamant. “I will not vote to bust the filibuster under any condition, on anything that you can think of,” Sen. Joe Manchin told the Washington Post this week. Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema likewise stressed that she is “not open to changing her mind.” Granting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell this assurance was viewed by Democrats’ left-flank as a preemptive surrender on enacting Biden’s agenda. Some wager that the right political pressure will force the senators to fold. Barely...
    Joe Biden has installed his longtime aides and campaign staff in power positions in the West Wing, keeping his allies close to him as he begins his presidency. Notably missing is his sister Valerie Biden Owens, a longtime adviser to Biden who was campaign manager for his Senate races along with his 1988 and 2008 presidential bids. She was a senior adviser to his 2020 campaign. But maps of the West Wing from Politico and CNN show no office location for the presidential sister. Biden's predecessor, President Donald Trump, installed his daughter and son-in-law in posh West Wing offices.  In the White House, proximity is power. In the hallways a person can have a casual run-in with a superior or another person of influence - even the president himself - that change change policy or strategy.  West Wing office space is some of the most valuable real estate in the world....

During his confirmation hearing before the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Mayorkas was asked about his position on the two DHS agencies by multiple Republican Senators.

    President Donald Trump wants to put his stamp on the nation's historical memory by signing an order with just hours left in his presidency for a 'Garden of American Heroes' that would pull together a hodgepodge of figures including Thomas Jefferson, Kobe Bryant, Grover Cleveland, and Alex Trebek. The executive order contains no funding nor even information on a location where the garden would be constructed – assuming successor Joe Biden wants to proceed with the project that Trump first revealed as pushback against street protests.

    Donald trump still in focus. It has never stopped being. The assault on the Capitol has opened a new chapter around the figure of the outgoing president of the United States, when there are only a few days left before he leaves office permanently. On January 20 Joe Biden will take office in almost unbreathable weather across the country and with a process of impeachment on the table. The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has already activated the process to “disqualify” Trump, accusing him of various charges derived from his mandate. Some sources say he could enlist the support of up to 20 figures from a Republican party that is also divided. The impeachment is, directly, a political judgment. It takes place in the United States Congress, with the aim of carrying out a possible removal of the president. The Constitution, in this sense, emphasizes...

    LIONEL MESSI will leave Barcelona if he does not agree to a pay cut. That is the opinion of Barca presidential candidate Emili Rousaud who called the Argentine's £500,000-a-week salary 'unsustainable'. 3Lionel Messi will leave Barcelona if he does not take a pay cutCredit: AP:Associated Press Messi was close to leaving in the summer after handing in a transfer request demanding the Catalans let him leave on a free. Manchester City were frontrunners in the race to sign him given the forward's links to Pep Guardiola and City's vast financial resources. But he eventually stayed put after the Catalans insisted the release clause he was trying to trigger had already expired. The 33-year-old's contract expires next summer anyway and his future is far from decided. But Rousaud says unless he agrees to a wage cut there'll be no chance of extending his stay at the Nou Camp.

    Photo via NSFDemocrats increased criticism of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ handling of the coronavirus pandemic Thursday, as first-time unemployment claims in Florida were up last week from the holiday-shortened previous week. The U.S. Department of Labor estimated 25,012 initial jobless claims were submitted in Florida during the week that ended Dec. 5, up from 23,063 claims during the previous week, which included Thanksgiving. Last week’s Florida total was among the lowest for a seven-day period since pandemic-related unemployment exploded across the state and nation in March. Since the start of November, the state has averaged just over 26,000 new claims a week.  However, the weekly uptick in claims could reflect mounting pressure on businesses as reported COVID-19 cases and deaths have again been on the rise. The report came as state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, a Republican, continued a tour calling for liability protections for businesses from coronavirus-related lawsuits. Meanwhile...
    Bradley Cortright December 6, 2020 0 Comments Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) believes his party has unfairly been tied to the ‘defund the police’ slogan despite few Democrats actually supporting the push. During an appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Manchin was asked why he believes President-elect Joe Biden faired better in the election than many down-ballot Democratic candidates.  “The bottom line is, we’ve been identified as something we’re not,” Manchin responded. “I’m a West Virginia Democrat — a proud West Virginia Democrat — and I don’t know of any Democrat, that I know of, that would ever defund the police.” He continued, “And how that got on as a mantra, that that’s a Democrat slogan, that’s not true. And how all these other things, that seem extreme, are not true. That’s not who we are. But, we were tagged with that. We were slow probably as a party...
    Bradley Cortright December 3, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump is not saying if he still has confidence in Attorney General William Barr after the attorney general said the Department of Justice (DOJ) has not yet found evidence of voter fraud. Trump has refused to concede the election and has instead continued to make baseless allegations that there was widespread fraud that tilted the results in favor of President-elect Joe Biden.  During an event at the White House on Thursday, Trump was asked about Barr’s comments on alleged voter fraud and “why is now not the time to concede” the election. “Well, [Barr] hasn’t done anything,” Trump said, adding, “So, he hasn’t looked. When he looks, he’ll see the kind of evidence that right now you are seeing in the Georgia Senate.” “They are going through hearings right now in Georgia, and they are finding tremendous volumes. So they haven’t looked very hard. Which is a...
    Israel Adesanya is one of the biggest names in combat sports. The UFC middleweight champion has orchestrated his growth from an exciting prospect to one of the biggest names in the promotion. All the newfound fame that has come Adesanya’s way has opened doors for opportunities outside the octagon, for example, his deal with Puma.  Another good example for the same would be the fact that ‘The Last Style Bender’ was given the opportunity to be a commentator for Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. The undefeated star executed his role with panache and seemed like a natural behind the desk.  Read: WATCH: Israel Adesanya works on Jiu-Jitsu skills in new video  Israel Adesanya reveals why he is not considering boxing In an interaction with ESNEWS, a reporter asked Adesanya was asked his thoughts on the rumors that Jorge Masvidal would face Canelo Alvarez.

    Harvey Weinstein is reportedly being filmed around the clock in prison to ensure he does not meet the same fate as Jeffrey Epstein.  The disgraced financier, 66, was found dead in his cell in August last year while awaiting trial at New York City’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. Bed sheets were found around his neck and his death was ruled a suicide. Now Weinstein, 68, who is serving 23 years in prison for rape, is said to have cameras film his every move at Wende Correctional Facility in upstate New York, TMZ reports.  A correctional officer follows the former Hollywood producer carrying a camera at eye level, according to the website. That's in addition to the standard level of surveillance a prisoner might expect.  Sources say the move is to avoid a repeat of Epstein's prison death but also to avoid any conspiracy theories and criminal liability should Weinstein meet the same fate.   Both...
    As Donald Trump's "legal" team loses flimsy lawsuit after flimsy lawsuit and (ahem) that team's top spokescreatures begin to turn increasingly feral, in front of the television cameras, Donald Trump himself appears to be genuinely pondering what to do with himself after being turned out of office in January. A spate of stories today asks that question, and the answers appear to be congealing around Trump both wanting to maintain absolute political power and do as little work as possible. The most immediate concern, of course, is vengeance. Trump is preoccupied this weekend with attacking Republican governors who he sees as not doing as much as they should be to overturn their states' elections to reinstall him as Dear Leader Because Reasons. Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, who is now being accused by Trump "lawyer" Sidney Powell of taking money to rig the election against Trump, and Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine,...

    BOXING legend Nigel Benn believes son Conor will be a world champion within a year. And the Hall of Famer has blasted Conor's critics and told them to 'shut up' and 'give him a break'. 5Nigel Benn is confident his son Conor will be a boxing world championCredit: REUTERS The 24-year-old has won all 16 of his pro fights, securing 11 KOs on the way. But in December 2017 Conor was lucky to escape with a points win against Cedrick Peynaud after being floored twice in the first round of six.

              Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said during a press conference on Monday that he is not planning to impose a second full lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus, instead calling for a “slow down” in the state. Ohio is currently seeing thousands of new cases of COVID-19 each day, with nearly 8,000 new cases added on Monday, according to data from the Covid Tracking Project. “Instead of shutting down, we have to slow down,” DeWine said at a conference from the Tri-State Airport in West Virginia, according to Fox8. “We have to slow down in our individual lives and our decisions in what we are doing.” DeWine said he plans to make a formal announcement on Tuesday, saying that he wants to keep schools open and protect those in nursing homes. He did not provide further details. “We don’t want to shut this...
    Savannah Rychcik November 15, 2020 0 Comments Former President Barack Obama (D) sat down with CBS News’ Gayle King to respond to President Donald Trump’s frequent criticisms of him. “Donald Trump often raises eyebrows when he says he’s done more for Black America and people of color,” King said. “Yes. Yes, it does raise eyebrows, you are correct!” Obama replied. King asked Obama if he takes Trump’s comments as an insult to himself or the things he accomplished while he was in office. “I think it’s fair to say that there are many things he says that I do not take personally or seriously, although I think they can often be destructive and harmful,” Obama said. Watch his remarks below: Trump suggested Obama was campaigning for him while he was on the campaign trail for President-elect Joe Biden, as IJR previously reported. “Obama is campaigning for...
    The distraught wife of the London boss of Russian airline Aeroflot, who was arrested in Moscow on suspicion of high treason on Wednesday, has today said she fears for his safety.   Dmitry Fedotkin, 39, who has run Aeroflot's operations in the UK for the last five years, was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly handing over state secrets to British intelligence, state media reported.  He is accused of 'betraying secret information about the socio-political situation in the Russian Federation to the British intelligence service.'  Mr Fedotkin, who could face up to 20 years in jail, denies the accusation. He has not yet been charged with a crime, local media reported.  Mr Fedotkin’s wife Liubov sobbed as she told MailOnline that she had not heard from her husband since his arrest. Fighting back the tears, she said: 'I haven’t managed to speak to him and have been calling people in Russia to...
    While many Americans celebrated Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election on Saturday, Donald Trump refused to acknowledge his defeat, crying out for “electoral fraud”. A denunciation joined by several close to the current president, even if others have asked him instead to concede victory to his rival. But the tenant of the White House would rather have chosen to listen to those who support his theory of a rigged election. He is said to have developed with his campaign team a series of actions to challenge the result of this election. It would thus provide large gatherings in several states, according to . and Axios. Trump’s goal would be to mobilize his supporters as much as possible at meetings similar to those he held during the campaign to show that his allegations of fraud, which he was unable to prove to be...
    NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said this week that he does not plan to stay in his role as head of the space agency under President-elect Joe Biden’s administration even if he is asked to serve, according to a report published Sunday. Bridenstine told Aviation Daily that his decision was driven by a desire to support the “best interest” of NASA and the country’s space exploration goals as a whole, rather than any partisan leanings. “For that, what you need is somebody who has a close relationship with the president of the United States. You need somebody who is trusted by the administration…. including the OMB [Office of Management and Budget], the National Space Council and the National Security Council, and I think that I would not be the right person for that in a new administration,” Bridenstine said in an interview with the outlet.

    Savannah Rychcik October 21, 2020 0 Comments Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is suggesting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is more focused on the issues ahead of the November election than attacking his opponent’s children. Before heading to an event in Charlotte, Harris explained to reporters the differences between Biden’s campaign and President Donald Trump’s. “Listen, Joe Biden knows that what America needs to hear is, they need to hear a conversation about how we’re going to put food on America’s tables when people are standing in food lines,” Harris said. She added, “He knows that people want to hear about how we’re going to help working people get through the end of the month and pay the rent. That’s what people care about, and one of the things I love about Joe Biden — he doesn’t take on or talk about other people’s kids.” Watch her comments below: Leaving...

    President Donald Trump's physician has said he is no longer at risk of transmitting the coronavirus -- but did not say explicitly whether Trump had tested negative for it.   In a memo released on Saturday night, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said Trump met the CDC criteria for safely discontinuing isolation and that by 'currently recognized standards' he was no longer considered a transmission risk. The diagnosis came as the president prepared to resume campaign rallies and other activities.  The memo did not declare Trump had tested negative for the virus. But sensitive lab tests - like the PCR test - detect virus in swab samples taken from the nose and throat, and can detected even a minuscule viral load.  President Donald Trump's physician has said he is no longer at risk of transmitting the coronavirus -- but did not say explicitly whether Trump had tested negative for it...
    Dear Moneyist, I recently discovered evidence that my husband of 20 years is having an affair, and he has made claims to others that he wants out of our marriage. He has not asked me to end the marriage yet, and I have not confronted him with this information. Some of his colleagues have been advising him on ways to get out of the marriage without having to pay alimony. We own our home and have some retirement accounts. His is substantially better (bigger) than mine. Early in our marriage we decided for me to stay home for a few years to raise our young children. As they got older, I became employed in a low paying job that suited our families needs. I have worked steadily for 10 years. There is a huge pay gap between us, as my husband has more education and has an uninterrupted...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden called out President Donald Trump's family for opting to take off their masks at last week's presidential debate in Cleveland – while blasting a 'macho' attitude that avoids mask wearing. Biden spoke Monday night just minutes after Trump left Walter Reed medical facility to reenter the White House – taking off his own mask to be photographed and then reentering the White House. Biden, speaking at an NBC town hall in Florida, said he was not worried about himself having contracted the coronavirus from Trump, who debated him on the same stage in Cleveland on Tuesday, when the president may have already been infected with COVID-19. Former Vice President Joe Biden blasted the 'macho' refusal to wear masks just minutes after President Trump staged a photo-op and returned to the White House from the hospital and then removed his own mask.  He told NBC's Lester Holt...
    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Rick Scott said he misspoke Saturday when he said on national television that he had tested positive for COVID-19. The Republican from Florida tweeted: “I misspoke this morning in my @FoxNews interview. I was tested yesterday for COVID and tested NEGATIVE.” During an interview Saturday morning on “Cavuto Live,” when asked about three Senate colleagues who had contracted the virus in recent days, Scott said, “I was tested yesterday, I think for the 6th time, and I tested positive again.” At least three Republican colleagues — U.S. Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin — have been diagnosed with the virus in recent days.

    Alex Henderson September 30, 2020 4:00PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on AlterNet. "Unhinged," "thuggish," "racist," "undisciplined" and "appalling" are among the many derogatory adjectives that have been used to describe President Donald Trump's performance during his debate with former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday, September 29. But such adjectives were being used to describe Trump long before the debate, and one author who has not been shy about stressing that he considers Trump to be the most dangerous president of his lifetime is Noam Chomsky — who, in an interview with Smashing Interviews Magazine published this week, laid out a variety of reasons why he is so troubled by Trump's presidency. The fact that Chomsky considers Trump's presidency the absolute worst he has ever lived through is saying a lot considering his age. The left-wing author, now 91, was born in Philadelphia on December 7, 1928, when Republican Calvin...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — Democratic nominee Joe Biden denied he supported the Green New Deal being pushed by his own campaign’s climate change panel during Tuesday night’s first presidential debate in Cleveland, Ohio. “The Green New Deal is not my plan,” the Democratic nominee told Fox News moderator Chris Wallace of the sweeping agenda which calls for the US to meet 100 percent renewable energy while creating millions of high-paying jobs. “Do you support the Green New Deal?” Wallace pressed the former veep during the chaotic match-up which frequently devolved into shouting matches between Biden and President Trump. “No, I don’t support the Green New Deal,” Biden said. Trump quickly cut in with, “Oh, you don’t? Well, that’s a big statement. That means you just lost the radical left. It’s gone.” Biden then continued, “I support the Biden plan that I put forward,” Biden maintained, “which is different than what...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is forming a state task force to review a coronavirus vaccine before recommending it to the public, saying Thursday he does not trust the federal government to determine when a vaccine is safe and effective. “New York state will have its own review when the federal government is finished with their review and says it’s safe,” Cuomo said at a press conference in Albany. “Frankly, I’m not going to trust the federal government’s opinion, and I wouldn’t recommend it to New Yorkers, based on the federal government’s opinion.” Cuomo said that the New York health department will consult with hospitals in the state to review any federally-approved vaccine. The Democrat said he wants to be able to “say to New Yorkers that it’s safe to take.” Cuomo’s remarks appear to be aimed at President Trump, who has said he hopes a coronavirus vaccine will be...
    Former law enforcement officer Cheryl Dorsey declared Wednesday on MSNBC that Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron did not speak for “black folk” because she said, “He is skin folk, but he is not kinfolk.” Dorsey was reacting to the grand jury in the Breonna Taylor case for charging former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison with three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment earlier. MSNBC host Ayman Mohyeldin said, “One of the comments that stuck out to me from the attorney general, he said, ‘sometimes the criminal law is not adequate to respond to a tragedy,’ that’s quite a remarkable statement, a striking statement.” Dorsey said, “Well, listen, not only is he being intellectually dishonest about that. I find all his remarks to this whole entire press conference offensive. Let me speak to this celebrity influencer thing — oh, they can’t speak for Kentuckians. Let me say this as a black woman — he doesn’t speak...
    LeBron James insisted this week he has never called for revenge attacks against cops, despite repeated rants some critics claim inflame “hatred” against police. “I’ve never in my 35 years ever condoned violence. Never have,” the hoops legend said Tuesday night when asked about his tirades being tied to the anger that led to two California deputies being shot in an ambush. “I do not condone violence towards anyone,” James insisted, according to the Los Angeles Times. “Police, black people, white people, anyone of color, anyone not of color because that’s not gonna ever make this world or America what we want it to be.” The Lakers legend has been the most vocal professional athlete on police brutality, calling it ” “f—ed up” that black Americans are living in fear of getting shot by cops who maybe “just left the house saying that today is going to be the end...

    Bill Gates no longer trusts US regulators - and questions whether the Food and Drug Administration's eventual approval of a coronavirus vaccine will mean the shot is safe.  'The FDA lost a lot of credibility,' the billionaire philanthropist told Bloomberg Television, referring to the agency's series of prematurely positive outlook on various COVID-19 treatments, and subsequent retractions.  Confidence in a vaccine from the long-time investor in public health initiatives could help to encourage Americans to get the shot that is likely the world's best hope to combat the pandemic.  But right now, Gates has little confidence that the FDA will sufficiently vet vaccines, and his skepticism is mirrored in the American public.  Meanwhile, Gates's own foundation published a report on Monday finding that the pandemic has wiped out 25 years of progress on global vaccine initiatives in just 25 weeks.  When asked if he still trusts the FDA after its...
    (CBSDFW.COM/CNN) — Days after Sen. Ted Cruz was included on President Donald Trump’s new list of potential Supreme Court nominees, the Texas Republican says that he does not want the job. While Cruz noted that it is “humbling” to be included on the president’s list, “it’s not the desire of my heart,” he told Fox Business News’ Maria Bartiromo on Sunday. “I want to be in the political fight,” Cruz explained. “I want to be fighting to nominate and confirm three, four, five principled constitutionalist justices, but that’s not where I want to serve. I want to stay fighting right where I am in the U.S. Senate.” When the list came out last week, Cruz released a statement, saying “It’s humbling and an immense honor to be considered.” The comments make Cruz the second of the three conservative Republican senators on the list to deflect the high court buzz.

    Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie blasted a recent report in the Atlantic that claimed President Trump disparaged American veterans and fallen soldiers, and said the current administration has been far better than the previous one in how it has treated veterans. Wilkie told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that the comments attributed to the president in the report by anonymous sources do not reflect the Donald Trump he knows.

    Zen priests rake as a form of meditation, a way of harmonizing their lives and the world. A Zen garden is a microcosm of the world: The sand or pebbles a Buddhist rakes symbolize oceans, lakes and rivers, while boulders and stones represent mountains, islands and other elements of nature. Raking is a practice of mindfulness, the daily work necessary for life to have meaning, the “extraordinary ordinary” tasks that everyone should attend to. Donald Trump does not rake. He does not understand raking. He believes that California would be spared forest fires if only we raked our forests: “I see again the forest fires are starting … again in California. I said, you gotta clean your floors, you gotta clean your forests — there are many, many years of leaves and broken trees and they’re like, like, so flammable, you touch them and it goes up.” Trump’s knowledge of...
    Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins already has a catchphrase from his time in Washington, but he might have created a new one this week. “If I die, I die.” Cousins spreads virus misinformation In podcast interview with NFL Network host Kyle Brandt published Wednesday morning on Spotify, Cousins said he would accept his fate if he contracted the coronavirus. “If I get it, I’m gonna ride it out. I’m gonna let nature do its course,” he said. “Survival-of-the-fittest kind of approach. And just say, if it knocks me out, it knocks me out. I’m going to be OK. You know, even if I die. If I die, I die. I kind of have peace about that.” Cousins said he wears a mask out of respect for others, but he does not believe face masks slow the virus’ spread, and he said players cannot breathe through them during workouts.
