Chris may have his moment now, but Jessica’s will come later. She KNOWS it will.
Look, David. We just want to start off by saying we think you’re great. You’ve got years of experience in both Republican and Democratic administrations, you provide reliably sharp and sober analysis, and we always look forward to watching you on election night on one of CNN’s hundred-pundit panels. That thing you said the other night about limiting expectations? Great stuff. So, it’s only out of love that we feel compelled to say this: It’s time to get rid of thecomb-over.
Your masculine scalp is nothing to be ashamed of! We know it’s probably tough sitting next to John King, his gray tresses flowing like Poseidon riding atop a dolphin. But look at James Carville — he’s hairless as a newborn mole and he’s doing justfine.

Maybe apprehension about the transition from comb-over to non–comb-over, and the glaring media spotlight that would follow, is what’s holding you back. But take the example of Rudy Giuliani. For years he sported one of the most famous comb-overs in America, but abruptly emerged in September 2002 bald and proud. A couple of news outlets took notice, printing lighthearted articles about Rudy’s transformation from moth to slightly more attractive moth. And then they quickly lost interest. David, if you think that in these extraordinary economic and political times people are going to care about a slight modification to your hairstyle, you’re wrong. We’re sorry we had to be the ones to tell you this, but we’ve spent too many post-election nights more entranced by your hair than your sage opinions. It’s time, David; get rid of the comb-over.
President Trump has fired Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, according to a letter from Mr. Trump obtained by CBS News. Atkinson handled the complaint from a whistleblower that led to Mr. Trump’s impeachment.
The letter from Mr. Trump was sent to Senators Richard Burr and Mark Warner, the heads of the Senate Intelligence Committee. It said Mr. Trump is “exercising my power as president” to remove Atkinson.
“It is extremely important that we promote the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of Federal programs and activities,” the letter said. But, the letter continued, it is “vital” that Mr. Trump have the “fullest confidence” in the Inspector General, and “that is no longer the case.”
Amid the mushrooming coronavirus crisis, Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch are girding for a pandemic of public-interest lawsuits over misinformation and conspiracy theories dispensed by certain Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network personalities such as Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Trish Regan.
According to a top Murdoch executive, the father-and-son media moguls are ready to go to war with potential plaintiffs such as the Washington League for Increased Transparency and Ethics—aka WASHLITE—an activist non-profit that filed suit on Thursday against Rupert Murdoch, Fox News, and other defendants.
Pelosi indicates that the fourth recovery bill could be similar to the $2.2T stimulus that just became law - and the House Dem priorities (infrastructure, broadband, etc. may wait til later.) “I think the bill could be very much like the bill we just passed,” she said on CNBC.
BREAKING: The UK records its worst death toll so far from #coronavirus with 684 new deaths in a day. Y’day’s rise was 569. The total toll is now 3,605 deaths. The U.K. cases rose almost 5,000 to 38,168. Britain’s Queen Elizabeth will now address the nation on TV on Sunday night.
The Trump administration’s decision to let states chart their own responses to the coronavirus crisis rather than impose a national strategy will cost thousands of lives and is likely to result in an open-ended outbreak rolling across the country, a dozen public health experts told NBC News.
The only way to win what President Donald Trump has called a war against an “invisible enemy” is to establish a unified federal command, the experts insist — something Trump has yet to do. So far, the federal government hasn’t leveraged all its authority and influence to dramatically expand testing and tracing measures, ensure a sufficient supply of crucial medical equipment or require residents of all 50 states to stay at home.
Each day that passes without such a national strategy, the experts say, will raise the ultimate U.S. death toll from COVID-19, the disease associated with the virus. Right now, there aren’t enough tests and gear as states compete with one another to buy them on the open market. And there is very little ability to trace who has the virus and where it is spreading.
