Nothing new from Merkel/Johnson. EU has always said Backstop could be replaced by legally operable alternative with same effect (not by vague promise to look for alternative). Unless BJ disowns his recent Tusk letter the ‘blistering 30-day timetable’ is a domestic delaying tactic https://t.co/rLyCuyFt5r

Brexit in two front pages.
The Guardian presents the truth of what happened today in Berlin, as Merkel insists on 30 day deadline to avert No Deal.

Well played by Merkel. By putting the onus on #BackDoorBoris to produce a solution that doesn't exist, she's called our unelected prime minister's bluff. Never was @BorisJohnson shown to be so out of his depth, a pathetic amateur among professionals!https://t.co/XOfJ8IXUXh

Just watched the Merkel & Johnson press conference in German. Let me assure you that UK press reports presenting this as some kind of turning point are completely overblown. There is no reason to hope for a breakthrough, but equally there is no reason to give up entirely.Thread1

After three years, the propensity of London media to fall for the spin of Westminster politicians rather than hearing and reading what EU politicians and bodies actually do say continues to disappoint
Brexit is as much a media and information crisis as a political crisis

Merkel: Sure, have 30 days to come up with proof that the mad ideas of the last 3 years aren’t mad

Within minutes today Trump attacked Obama and the Prime Minister of Denmark, doubled down on his support of Russia and an anti-Semitic trope, and called himself "the chosen one."
So ya know… Wednesday.

Perspective: Trump keeps pushing anti-Semitic stereotypes. But he thinks he’s praising Jews. https://t.co/Aa0ReHqVHo
— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) August 22, 2019
Had Warren or Biden declared that Jews were disloyal to Israel for not supporting them, their campaigns would be finished.
For Trump, it’ll be forgotten tomorrow.
The insanity of his presidency has simply broken traditional political reporting.

Fires are raging at a record rate in Brazil's Amazon rainforest, and scientists warn that it could strike a devastating blow to the fight against climate change https://t.co/S23MHX03ia
— CNN (@CNN) August 22, 2019
Scientists warn that losing another fifth of Brazil’s Amazon will trigger the feedback loop known as dieback, in which the forest begins to dry out and burn in a cascading system collapse, beyond the reach of any subsequent human intervention or regret. https://t.co/oQquBYsM3Z

Thank you @JayInslee for fighting every day to make sure that climate change remains a primary focus of this election. Climate change is real and it's a crisis—and I will keep fighting alongside you to take bold action before it is too late.
— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) August 22, 2019
Never flashy, @JayInslee didn’t find his lane. But he impressed me with his smart, earnest advocacy around climate change and an array of issues.
He leaves with his dignity in tact and reputation enhanced, which isn’t always true in presidential races.https://t.co/6ItcBuqDvZ
— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) August 22, 2019
People will try to spin it differently but Inslee's lackluster performance is an obviously bearish indicator for the prioritization of climate change in Democratic politics.
