Watching @PressSec in her debut. She was a student in a class I taught at Georgetown. In comparison with her predecessors, she’s smarter/more articulate in delivering Administration spintalkers. A gentler Kellyanne Conway. Real test will be if/when she’s caught or forced to lie.

For anyone who thought the worse was behind us, today 11 states reported 1,000 or more new coronavirus cases. 8 other states reported 500 or more.
New York which at one point made up half of cases, so far today accounting for 10%.

On April 20, Trump declared total US deaths would be between 50-60,000. This week, he insisted the number would be 65-70,000. Having nearly reached 65,000 today, he's upped the number again. This isn't shifting the goalposts, it's moving the body bags and hoping no one notices. https://t.co/Qh4wPCyeBI

agreeing to stay at home and not get your hair cut is not “giving up civil liberties.” Agreeing to allow unaccountable federal entities to spy on your fellow citizens because they’re Muslim or telling black folks to just accept constant harassment and murder by cops is.

As my sister goes to take part in a car/social distanced protest for more worker protections at a corona-ravaged nursing home, I'm reminded again about protests that do and don't get covered. It's a sin that those thugs in Michigan get the play while actions like this do not.

and meanwhile, in no surprise at all….
It's looking more and more like the Trump family arrived in DC, hooked up a giant hose to the federal treasury, and just started the pumps running as fast as they could. An absolute dream for a cash-strapped, leveraged to its eyeballs outfit like the Trump Org. https://t.co/3YIttSddWr

So a few months before the 2020 election, the defense secretary is ordering $545 million to be diverted from projects in Europe (like countering Russian aggression) to building of Trump's signature border wall.
