    Comedian Chris Rock slammed the Democratic Party, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi by name, during an interview this week for letting “the pandemic come in” while they were busy trying to remove President Donald Trump from office through impeachment. “Part of the reason we’re in the predicament we’re in is, the president’s a landlord,” Rock, 55, said. “No one has less compassion for humans than a landlord.” Rock continued: Did you ever see that movie “The Last Emperor,” where like a 5-year-old is the emperor of China? There’s a kid and he’s the king. So I’m like, it’s all the Democrats’ fault. Because you knew that the emperor was 5 years old. And when the emperor’s 5 years old, they only lead...
    Meaghan Ellis September 14, 2020 0 Comments Journalist Bob Woodward revealed President Donald Trump was well aware of the fact that the coronavirus pandemic was coming before he began taking the necessary steps to mitigate the spread of the virus. During an exclusive “60 Minutes” interview with Scott Pelley, Woodward recalled Trump telling him when he first received intelligence about the coronavirus. “On January 28th of this year, before the virus was on anyone’s radar, the national security advisor, Robert O’Brien, told the president, ‘This virus will be the biggest national security threat you face in your presidency,'” Woodward said on Sunday. When asked about Trump’s reaction to the warning, Woodward claimed the president asked questions that...

Margaret Brennan first spoke with Gottlieb about what a realistic timeline for vaccines would look like, before turning to Bob Woodward’s book and President Donald Trump’s early downplaying of the severity of the coronavirus. “Do you think the critical failing here was one of public messaging or was it operational?” brennan asked. Gottlieb said the public messaging “wasn’t clear and consistent in the outset and could have been better at all levels of government,” saying that the biggest failing in February was that “we were situationally blind, we...

    New data from medical records in Los Angeles indicate COVID-19 may have been circulating in the United States prior to even China informing the World Health Organization of an outbreak of the then-unidentified virus, according to researchers at UCLA and the University of Washington. In a study published Thursday in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, they compared electronic medical records from this winter to the past five years and found an excess number of outpatient and emergency room visits with complaints of a “cough,” as well as hospitalizations for acute respiratory failure, beginning the week of Dec. 22, 2019. From then through the end of February — a 10-week span — they estimated there were 1,047 more outpatient visits,...
    Trump in South Carolina on February 28 On February 7, Donald Trump told Bob Woodward that coronavirus is transmitted by air. “It goes through air, Bob. That's always tougher than the touch. You know, the touch, you don't have to touch things. Right? But the air, you just breathe the air and that's how it's passed," he said. "And so, that's a very tricky one.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden attacked President Donald Trump on Wednesday for downplaying the threat of the coronavirus earlier this year to discourage panic — but he himself told Americans not to panic about the disease. Sean Hannity aired archival footage on Fox News of Biden speaking to supporters in Sumter, South Carolina, on Feb. 28 — one day before Biden won the state’s primary, securing his first victory in three presidential campaigns and creating a path to the nomination. “Barack [Obama] and I, when we were — as president and vice president – we took on the virus that was threatening all of Africa and, uh, the rest of the world,” Biden said, forgetting the name of the Ebola...
    Alex Thomas September 9, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump told Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward in a February phone call that the coronavirus was “deadly stuff,” before he publicly spent months downplaying the virus, according to Woodward’s new book. In late January, Trump’s aides warned him that, “This will be the biggest national security threat you face in your presidency.” Less than two weeks later, Trump called Woodward and told the iconic journalist, “You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed.” The president added, “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu,” according to the Washington Post’s preview of the book...

    PHILADELPHIA (CNN) — Another 1.4 million jobs were added to the US economy in August, as the jobs recovery continued to slow. This was in line with expectations, and down from 1.7 million jobs added in July and 4.8 million in June. Every person who can go back to work is a win for the recovery from the unprecedented jobless crisis the Covid-19 pandemic has brought on. However, America is still down 11.5 million jobs from February. The unemployment rate fell to 8.4%. It’s below 10% — which was also its Great Recession peak — for the first time since March. This means millions of families in need of benefits to make ends meet while Congress continues to argue about the next stimulus package. During the Republican National Convention last...
    The path to playing Pac-12 football in the winter or early spring resembles the 3,000-meter steeplechase. The obstacles are foundational to intercollegiate athletics (eligibility and health/safety). And identifiable with big business (TV broadcast windows). And intrinsic to a global pandemic (community spread and testing efficiency). The hurdles are indisputably real unquestionably daunting as the Pac-12’s football working group — it spent months plotting a revised fall season that was ultimately shuttered — pivots to modeling a possible winter/spring season. But one obstacle cited frequently in the public realm is, in reality, a mirage: The weather. If the Pac-12’s northern campuses are capable of hosting games in November, they’s perfectly able to host games in February … and perhaps even late...

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Approximately half of all police in Afghanistan’s southern provinces use drugs and up to 70% of police positions in those regions are “ghost” positions not actually filled by a person, a new report released Wednesday by a U.S. government watchdog said.

    The Democrat’s presumptive nominee Joe Biden named his former primary opponent Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate Tuesday, despite her notoriously poor performance in the 2020 primaries. The California Democrat launched her presidential campaign in January 2019 with great fanfare. But despite the fawning media coverage hailing her as the “frontrunner” and the “candidate to beat,” Harris’ campaign crashed and burned two months before a single vote was cast.

    For The Daily Beast's membership drive, we're asking our reporters and editors to tell the stories behind some of their biggest stories. Barely a year into this administration, when the two of us—Daily Beast investigative reporter Lachlan Markay and White House correspondent Asawin Suebsaeng—were first approached to write a book on the era of President and racist game-show host Donald J. Trump, we were asked if we wanted to co-author something on the “adults in the room.” This meant: the president’s lieutenants who encouraged stability and maintained a respectable moral code against the backdrop and foreground of Trump’s tumult, vulgarity, and omnishambles. (Think: your Rex Tillersons, your John Kellys, your James Mattises… I guess.) We politely turned down the assignment...
    President Donald Trump and his allies continue to insist that he has handled the coronavirus pandemic remarkably well, claiming that the death count from COVID-19 would be much higher in the United States if he hadn’t been so proactive and quick to respond to the crisis. But such claims are ludicrous, as Trump seriously downplayed the threat back in January and February and even described it as a Democratic “hoax.” And journalist William Saletan, in an in-depth “blow-by-blow account”  for Slate, argues that “tens of thousands” of American lives could have been saved if Trump had done a better job handling the crisis. “The story the president now tells — that he ‘built the greatest economy in history,’ that China...

    A New Mexico police officer has been charged with second-degree murder after authorities said he killed a Latino detainee he placed in a chokehold.  Christopher Smelser was fired from the Las Cruces Police Department and initially slapped with a manslaughter charge over the death of Antonio Valenzuela on February 29.  However, the charge was revised Thursday following nationwide demonstrations sparked by the death of unarmed black man George Floyd in police custody.  Protesters have put pressure on police departments to change policies involving the use of force and interactions with black, Latino and Native American residents.  Police say Valenzuela, 40, fled during a traffic stop in the early hours of February 29.  Two officers unsuccessfully tried to taser Valenzuela twice...

    Staff members of House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff were told in February that some military officials believed Russia had paid Taliban militants to kill U.S. and NATO coalition troops in Afghanistan but the California Democrat took no action to alert anybody else, The Federalist reported Thursday. Schiff has confirmed Donald Trump’s assertion that the president was not informed of the report but also has criticized Trump for not getting “to the bottom” of the claim. The Federalist cited unidentified sources for its story, similar to the New York Times, which initially reported the claim on Friday quoting anonymous sources and which sparked a deluge of criticism of Trump from Democrats. Schiff’s staff was informed during a congressional delegation, or...

Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, learned of the reports of Russian bounties on United States soldiers in Afghanistan in February and took no action, The Federalist reported. According to the report, intelligence sources familiar with the briefings claim that Schiff learned of the bounties while on a congressional delegation trip to Afghanistan in February. When pressed if he was aware of the bounties on Tuesday, Schiff said he could not “comment on specifics.” Schiff previously called it “unfathomable” that Donald Trump took no action to the intelligence, Axios reported. Schiff suggested that Trump was not interested in hearing negative reports on Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Because, after all, the president was...

    The coronavirus appears to have been circulating at low levels in the Big Apple since early February — about a month before the first case was confirmed in the city, new research reveals. A study published this week, based on more than 5,000 plasma samples collected from patients at Manhattan’s Mount Sinai Hospital, revealed that some patients had antibodies for the contagion as early as the week ending on Feb. 23. Considering the time necessary to produce antibodies, that likely means they were infected about two weeks earlier, Florian Krammer, an immunologist at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, who led the study, told the New York Times. “You’re probably talking about very early in February,” Krammer...
    Editor’s note: With President Donald Trump and many Republican senators losing ground in recent polls, the odds of Democrats controlling all three branches of government are increasing. The series “Here’s What To Expect In 2021” will cover policies that have passed in the Democrat run U.S. House of Representatives and which poll well among the Democrat base. The debate over gun control and the Second Amendment has been a highly contentious one, and the results of the 2020 presidential election could prove to be highly consequential for the gun debate. With presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden holding a lead over President Donald Trump, according to RealClearPolitics polling, a look at Democratic voter priorities and legislation passed by House Democrats could...

    Blood samples taken from New Yorkers reveal some antibodies against the novel coronavirus much earlier than previously believed, a study suggests. Researchers found that residents of the Big Apple had been built up an immune response in late February. That's about one week before the first case was confirmed on February 29 and  announced on March 1 by Gov Andrew Cuomo. The team, from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, says the findings could mean the virus was circulating in New York in late January or early February.  Coronavirus antibodies were detected in about 2.3% of samples for the week ending on February 23, with 1.4% in one group (above) and 0.9% in another group This...

    Drew Angerer/Getty Images The New York Times has reported on a new instance in which President Donald Trump was allegedly briefed on Russia’s campaign to reward Taliban-linked militias with cash bounties for killing U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Trump and the White House have denied there were briefings on the program, claiming it wasn’t credible enough. But the Times is now reporting the president received a written briefing on the subject in late February. This comes as the Associated Press reports that former national security adviser John Bolton briefed Trump on the Russian intelligence assessment as far back as March of last year. The Times reported that the bounty intel was included in a compilation of foreign policy and national security...

The new information, reported by The New York Times, emerged on Monday as the White House attempted to downplay the assessment that Russia had sought to reward such killings. It had been reiterated by the White House that President Trump was never briefed on the matter. But two officials told The Times that the intelligence was first presented to Trump months ago, included in Trump's Daily Brief document. The document is a compilation of the government's latest secrets and foreign policy insights. It also focuses on...

    Coronavirus — The Government now recognizes, more than four months after the events and after denying it as active and passive, that in February there was a “health emergency” that forced the cancellation of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. This supposes a new blow to the opinion repeatedly expressed, in February, March and even April, by the Executive about the cancellation of the mobile technology event, which he always blamed on companies. “The Mobile could not be held this year as a result of the health emergency caused by the covid-19”, said the Minister of Finance and government spokesman for Pedro Sánchez, Maria Jesus Montero, this Tuesday at the press conference after the Council of Ministers.

    The U.S. economy entered a recession in February, a group of economists declared Monday, ending the longest expansion on record just as the novel coronavirus began swiftly spreading across the country. The economists said employment peaked in February and fell sharply afterward, marking the beginning of the downturn as cases of COVID-19 metastasized throughout the U.S., soon killing thousands, shutting down millions of businesses and sparking stay-at-home orders for much of the nation's population by mid-March.  What a difference a pandemic can make: Just weeks earlier in February, the jobless rate stood at 3.5%, the lowest rate in 50 years, and employers in February had added 273,000 workers. The subsequent job losses — tens of millions of newly unemployed Americans from...
