Disgraced CIA Director David Petraeus’s friend and former spokesman, retired Colonel Steve Boylan, appeared on Good Morning America today to deliver the latest on the still-blooming scandal, and we are so glad he did. “She’s not exactly pleased right now,” Boylan said of the former general’s wife Holly. “In a conversation with David Petraeus this weekend he said that furious would be an understatement.” The real news, though, was Boylan’s shirt, which was both soothing in this turbulent time and bold, announcing proudly that these colors don’t run.

The public is giving Washington progressively worse marks on coronavirus
A majority of Americans – 55% – now say the federal government has done a poor job preventing the spread of coronavirus in the United States, up eight points in about a week, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS as the nationwide death toll from the virus rose above 12,000.
Eighty percent feel the worst of the outbreak is yet to come, most (55%) feel President Donald Trump could be doing more to fight the outbreak, and 37% say they have grown more concerned about coronavirus in the last few days, far outpacing the 5% who say their fears have eased recently.
About 1 in 5 (22%) say they personally know someone who has been diagnosed with the virus, a figure that is double the share who said so in a Washington Post/ABC News poll conducted just two weeks ago.
