    Joe Scarborough laughed out loud at former President Donald Trump’s so-called “Envoy Ambassador” Ric Grenell, who the Morning Joe co-host derided as “a guy I would not send to 7/11 to get a Slurpee.” “Former President Trump has been saying for months that he should be the actual president, as you know,” said Scarborough on Friday morning. “And now he’s taken his fantasy a step further.” “As a private citizen, Mr. Trump sent former Ambassador, of all people,” he continued, bursting out laughing, “Ric Grenell to the Kosovo-Serbia border in what he is calling an envoy ambassador. A guy I would not send to 7/11 to get a Slurpee.” Scarborough noted that “Grenell landed in Kosovo this week.” He continued, “But because Donald Trump is actually not the president because Joe Biden got well over 300 electoral votes, Grenell’s not there in any official government capacity.” Scarborough read a statement a White House official sent to RealClearPolitics: “Outside of his very active imagination, Donald Trump is no longer President and doesn’t have [any ‘envoy ambassadors’] representing the United States.” Scarborough...
    President Joe Biden took a shot at former President Donald Trump as he visited a local small business to promote his version of a Covid loan program that was abused under the last administration. On Tuesday, President Biden visited W.S. Jenks & Son, a Washington, DC hardware store that has taken advantage of a Biden administration rule in the Paycheck Protection Program that gave small businesses with 20 or fewer employees an exclusive two-week window to apply for the assistance. There, he spoke with Jerry Siegel and his son Mike Siegel, co-owners of the store, and also with Mary Ackley, owner of Little Wild Things Farm, whose business is at the same property and also benefitted from the rule change. The business owners described the challenges they’ve faced during the pandemic, and the importance of the PPP loans. “One of the reasons why I changed that rule, to make sure only employers with 20 or fewer employees could qualify for PPP, the reason for that was 400,000 small businesses went out of business, they got in line but couldn’t get...
    WILMINGTON, Delaware -- President Joe Biden is targeting federal pandemic assistance to the nation's smallest businesses and taking steps to further equity in what is known as the Paycheck Protection Program.The administration is establishing a two-week window, starting on Wednesday, in which only businesses with fewer than 20 employees - the overwhelming majority of small businesses - can apply for the forgivable loans. Biden's team is also carving out $1 billion to direct toward sole proprietors, such as home contractors and beauticians, the majority of which are owned by women and people of color.Other efforts will remove a prohibition on lending to a company with at least 20% ownership by a person arrested or convicted for a nonfraud felony in the prior year, as well as allowing those behind on their federal student loans to seek relief through the program. The administration is also clarifying that noncitizen legal residents can apply to the program.The PPP, first rolled out in the earliest days of the coronavirus pandemic and renewed in December, was meant to help keep Americans employed during the economic...
    More from: Karol Markowicz Beware the experts who want lockdowns to go on forever De Blasio hates gifted schooling because it exposes his own failures Florida puts New York to shame in rational pandemic policies Dont trust politicos — and other lessons from bizarre year that just passed How cancel culture keeps COVID-19 lockdown doubters silent It’s not unusual for promises made in the heat of passion during a presidential campaign to run into the cold reality of actually being president. It just usually takes longer than it did for Joe Biden. President Biden enjoyed a campaign where he rarely answered questions, particularly about ending the pandemic, or was challenged by a media which openly wished to elect him. He was able to get away with catchy slogans. When would the changes start? “Day 1!” How long would everything take? “100 days!” For “100 days” everyone would be urged to wear masks, as if we were not already. Biden promised to give out 100 million vaccine shots in those 100 days, a promise that didn’t make a lot of...
    President Joe Biden signaled flexibility on $1,400 checks he wants to send out to Americans – acknowledging Republican opposition to one of the signature parts of his $1.9 trillion COVID relief package. Biden defended the amount as 'reasonable' in a press availability Monday, as he continued his calls for 'unity' but also said it was possible to achieve unity on a party-line vote when bipartisanship isn't available. He picked the figure after House Democrats called for $2,000 checks but a bill negotiated in the last days of the Trump administration sent out $600 checks.  I'm open to negotiate those things': President Joe Biden spoke about the $1,400 stimulus checks he wants to send out as part of his COVID relief package 'We'll have arguments. For example, you know, I propose that we – because it was bipartisan, I thought it would increase the prospects of passage, the additional $1,400 in direct cash payment to folks,' he said. 'Well there's legitimate reason for people to say do you have the lines drawn the exact right way? Should it go to...
    Just over one in 10 American voters claim the coronavirus vaccine distribution isn't great as Joe Biden's team doubles down on his promise to get 100 million Americans vaccinated in his first 100 days in office. According to an NBC News poll, 11 per cent of voters say the vaccine administration, from distribution to shot, isn't 'going very well.' Of the Americans who claim delivery of vaccinations is falling short of the goal post, 64 per cent say the federal government is to blame. The president's team is putting the onus on predecessor Donald Trump for not developing a good plan to distribute vaccines after two different vaccines, from Moderna and Pfizer, were approved for emergency use by the FDA toward the end of his administration. 'We need more vaccines, we need more vaccinators and we need more vaccine sites,' Biden's White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain told NBC on Sunday. Joe Biden's Chief of Staff Ron Klain doubled down Sunday on the new administration's promise to distribute 100 million vaccines in his first 100 days in office,...
    More than one million COVID-19 vaccines were given out in the United States yesterday as Joe Biden - just two days into his presidency - laid out his 'full scale war-time' plan to reach that exact goal. Biden has been touting for several weeks now how he will aim to have 100 million Americans inoculated within his first 100 days in office. Yet just one day after his inauguration, the US recorded 1.3 million COVID-19 vaccines. The seven-day rolling average for new COVID-19 vaccines being administered is already at 940,000 a day. It came as Biden signed a new executive order on Thursday to speed up vaccine delivery and doubled-down on his plan to hand out one million doses per day. He did not address that the Trump administration had already been on that trajectory to boost the number of shots closer to the one million mark. President Joe Biden, flanked by VP Kamala Harris, signed a new executive order on Thursday to speed up vaccine delivery and doubled-down on his plan to hand out one million doses per day...
    President-elect Joe Biden will retire the name 'Operation Warp Speed' as he rolls out his own plan to distribute COVID-19 vaccines after calling President Donald Trump's effort 'dismal' Thursday night.  Biden will present his plan from Wilmington, Delaware Friday afternoon.  '[Operation Warp Speed] is the Trump team's name for their program. We are phasing in a new structure, which will have a different name than OWS,' incoming White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Twitter. 'Many of the public servants will be essential to our response, but urgent need to address failures of the Trump team approach to vaccine distribution.'    President-elect Joe Biden will roll out his plan to distribute COVID-19 vaccines after calling President Donald Trump's operation 'dismal' Thursday night in Wilmington (pictured)  President Donald Trump called his administration's push for a fast COVID-19 vaccine Operation Warp Speed.

    President-elect Joe Biden has made clear he supports few, if any, of Trump's last-minute policy pronouncements. On its way out the door, the Trump administration is enacting new rules, regulations, and orders that it hopes will box in President-elect Joe Biden's administration on numerous foreign policy matters and cement Donald Trump's "America First" legacy in international affairs. Yet the push may not work, as many of these decisions can be withdrawn or significantly amended by the incoming president when he takes office on Jan. 20. In recent weeks, the White House, State Department, and other agencies have been working overtime to produce new policy pronouncements on Iran, Israel, China, and elsewhere that aim to lock in Trump's vision for the world. Some have attracted significant attention, while others have flown largely under the radar.
    President-elect Joe Biden suggested President Donald Trump's refusal to allow for a formal transition to begin is illegal and called the 45th president's actions 'hard to fathom.' Biden measured his words and took long pauses when asked about Trump's actions – minutes after Trump's legal team came out to allege a 'massive' election fraud after efforts to get courts to toss out hundreds of thousands of votes in Philadelphia and Detroit. He also got asked about the administration's refusal to reach a formal assessment that Biden is the winner, which would commence a formal transition with meetings between Biden's aides and agency staff.  President-elect Joe Biden, accompanied by Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, speaks at The Queen theater, Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020, in Wilmington, Del. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik) 'I just – It’s hard to fathom how this man thinks,' Biden said. 'It’s hard to fathom I’m confident he knows he hasn’t won. I just you know, far from me to question his motive but it’s just outrageous what he’s doing,' he said. Biden, who spent decades in the Senate, regularly...
