    White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci conceded on Sunday that Americans now must use their own best instincts when it comes to dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic. Fauci, speaking to Jonathan Karl on ABC's This Week, was asked about an op-ed in the Washington Post by former public health official Dr. Lena Wen who said that we will likely have to accept at some point that Covid infections will keep occurring.  Karl asked Fauci if we've reached the point where we 'accept there is going to be a risk' and get back to a new normal.  'There will be - and we've said this many times even in our own discussions between you and I, that there will be a level of infection,' Fauci said.  'This is not going to be eradicated and it's not going to be eliminated. And what's going to happen is that we're going to see that each individual is going to have to make their calculation of the amount of risk that they want to take in going to indoor dinners and in going...
    Podcasting giant Joe Rogan, who also performs as a standup comic, slammed Will Smith for setting a 'terrible precedent' by slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars.  Rogan, 54, worried that 'dumb people' will now have license to start attacking comedians after Smith, 53, stormed the Dolby Theatre stage Sunday and slapped Rock, 57, for a GI Jane joke aimed at the actor's wife.  'It sets a terrible precedent in so many different ways,' Rogan said on his podcast on Tuesday. 'It sets a terrible precedent for comedy clubs. Like, are people going to decide to go on stage and smack a comedian now.'  The actor went on to win the award for best male actor for his performance in King Richard and was allowed to give a rambling and teary speech where he apologized for his behavior. The Academy will meet Wednesday to decide whether to discipline Smith.  Rogan was left dumbfounded by the Academy's decision to allow Smith to go up and accept his Oscar. 'It's a rare instance that someone so enormously famous and successful like Will Smith that they literally still...
    SAN JOSE – When defenseman Erik Karlsson missed his first game on Jan. 22 with what turned out to be a small muscle tear in his left forearm, the Sharks were still in a playoff position and looking like a team that could play meaningful games right until the end of the regular season. All signs point to Karlsson being available to play again for the Sharks on Thursday against the Los Angeles Kings after a 14-game absence, but the team’s outlook has drastically changed. San Jose as of Tuesday morning was 11 points out of a playoff spot with 26 games to go and barring a minor miracle, will miss the playoffs for a franchise-worst third straight season. Now Karlsson, in the third year of an eight-year, $92 million contract extension, is among those wondering when the franchise can pull out of its malaise. “It’s definitely better. I don’t think it’s anywhere near good, but I think it’s moving the right way,” Karlsson said Tuesday. “Who knows how long it will take until we get to where we want...

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Remember that cult of personality who selfishly had his supporters commit an almost-coup about a year ago because he couldn’t accept that he lost? Well, it seems he’s still the de facto leader of the Republican party. As Georgia heads for a gubernatorial election, a new poll of likely Republican voters suggests that former President Trump’s endorsement could sway the primary. An initial survey of 500 Georgians found that 41 percent would vote for incumbent Brian Kemp, while 22 percent favored former Sen. David Perdue, who lost reelection to Senator Jon Ossoff earlier this year. Then, respondents were then informed that Trump had endorsed Perdue—after that, many potential voters changed their tune. The knowledge of Trump’s endorsement tied Kemp and Perdue at 34 percent.

    We Americans are 330,000,000 people trying to find a way to travel together to the same place. Or so we like to think. In reality our current divisions indicate that we are headed toward different destinations. The metaphor that properly describes the dilemma in front of us is elusive. A crossroads? A fork in the road? A perilous trek along a knife-edged ridge with a disastrous fall on either side? Chutes and Ladders? However we describe the journey, it’s clear that we’re not going to the same place. And the point of no return is closer than we think. In fact, we could reach the decision point in weeks, in connection with the fate of the Democrats’ “Build Back Better” plan. Or maybe we have until the midterm elections next year. But, certainly, by no later than the presidential election of 2024 we’re going to have to decide who we are and where we’re going. Extending the metaphor, let’s call one of the destinations Trumptown. Overly dramatic? Maybe. But it’s dangerously naïve to underestimate the remarkable endurance of the former...
    At some point, the staunch and vocal opposition Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema have expressed against reforming the filibuster is going to end. It's not clear yet what the legislation is that's going to be the catalyst, but it will happen. It could be infrastructure. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin thinks that's a good test, because Republican states also have creaking bridges, bad roads, failing water systems, and slow internet. "I think we need some floor experience first. Bring some bills to the floor. Let's see what happens," Durbin told The Washington Post. “I think what Joe [Manchin] is looking for is Republican buy-in, participation. And I’m all for that. If there’s one bill that should do it, it'd be infrastructure," Durbin said. Manchin has, in fact, vowed to block an infrastructure bill from President Biden that doesn't have Republican buy-in. The follow-up question that hasn't been asked is how many Republicans he needs, because the likelihood Sen. Mitch McConnell releases 10 of them to break a filibuster is less than slim—it's nonexistent. Campaign Action Manchin, by the way,...
    Tuesday in an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) called on Supreme Court justice nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett to “recuse herself.” Blumenthal told MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt ahead of the second day of the hearing if Barrett does not “commit to recuse herself,” she will “destroy the legitimacy of the court and her own credibility.” “Plainly, as you know, Kasie, the Republicans have the votes on this committee,” Blumenthal lamented. “They can prevail by raw power, but they don’t have the American people on their side. They don’t have history on their side. They’re losing because the American people want the next president and the next Senate to choose the next justice, and the American people want the Affordable Care Act. They want reproductive freedoms and sensible common-sense gun violence prevention, but there is an agenda here, and it is a pretty ugly one.” He continued, “The President of the United States decided, in the days after Justice Ginsburg’s death, he wanted to put another justice on the Supreme Court so she could decide this election. He...
    RuPaul predicted the long run when she turned out the season-ending single “Queens In every single place” final 12 months. For the reason that finish of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11, the franchise—and Ru and Michelle Visage—jumped throughout the pond for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. Now the queens of the Nice White North have a shot at a crown of their received with the launch of Canada’s Drag Race. Stepping in as a number and decide for the brand new collection is likely one of the very queens who stepped up and stepped out as a part of that frankly iconic “Queens In every single place” quantity: Season 11 runner-up Brooke Lynn Hytes. Her ascension to the judges’ panel is a significant deal, as she’s the primary drag queen apart from RuPaul to occupy a spot on the prime—however it’s no shock that manufacturing firm World of Marvel turned to Hytes once they wanted a Canadian queen with gravitas. All through her season on Drag Race, Brooke Lynn Hytes stunted and shocked the judges whereas racking up essentially the...
    Washington Nationals star Ryan Zimmerman is still up in the air when it comes to joining his team for the 2020 coronavirus-pandemic-shortened Major League Baseball season. Zimmerman wrote in his Associated Press diary he was still “deciding whether to play.” TWINS' MITCH GARVER WORRIED 'BASEBALL IS JUST CONCERNED ABOUT GETTING ON THE FIELD' “When it comes down to it, it’s a decision not just for me, but for my family as well,” Zimmerman wrote. “I have a 3-week-old baby. My mother has multiple sclerosis and is super high-risk; if I end up playing, I can pretty much throw out the idea of seeing her until weeks after the season is over. “There’s a lot of factors that I and others have to consider. I don’t think there’s a right or wrong answer; it’s everybody’s individual choice. At the end of the day, does a player feel comfortable going to the field every day and -- in my case, more importantly -- feel comfortable coming home every day and feel like they’re not putting anyone else in danger?” Zimmeran said he didn’t...
