    During a Friday phone interview on Newsmax TV’s “Wake Up America,” former President Donald Trump tore into National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head Dr. Anthony Fauci, who served as part of the coronavirus task force. Trump described Fauci as a “very good promoter” but not “a very good doctor.” He said he did not listen to much of Fauci’s advice when it comes to handling the pandemic, adding had he listened, “it would’ve been not so good.” “He was a very good promoter,” Trump said of Fauci. “I don’t think he was a very good doctor, but he was a very good promoter.” “He’s been there for what 40 some odd years. He is almost like a staple. And I think, frankly, uh, it was fine. Don’t forget. I didn’t listen to him too much. You know, had I listened to him, it would’ve been not so good. But I did listen to his opinion,” he added. “I respect everybody. I want people’s opinion. I listen to his opinion, and then I did what I think was right. And...
    Dear Amy: My friend “Laura” has seemed distant to me, lately. Amy Dickinson  She is one from a group of four women who have been friends for a number of years. When I remarked on Laura’s distance to me to another friend from the group, she said, “I know why Laura is behaving this way. Do you want to know more?” Of course, I did. She then told me that I must have inadvertently “butt-dialed” Laura on my cell phone. Laura told our friend that she heard my husband and me making fun of her son. I was shocked. If someone had mistakenly dialed me, I would never listen to their private conversation! (Our mutual friend, however, said that she would “totally listen.”) Related Articles Ask Amy: They’re mask-free and happy. How do I tell them my news?

    Getty Nate Diaz slammed Francis Ngannou in a recent interview. UFC superstar Nate Diaz returns to action against welterweight contender Leon Edwards this weekend at UFC 263, but the 36-year-old American turned his attention toward a UFC champion a few weight classes above him. Diaz had been asked by Yahoo’s Kevin Iole to respond to UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou’s recent tweet about UFC fighters getting paid less to fight than YouTubers such as Logan Paul. Diaz slammed Ngannou and other UFC fighters for just speaking up about the issue now. “What is he doing wrong? What is Francis Ngannou doing wrong?” Diaz said. This is my interview with @NateDiaz209 He fights @Leon_edwardsmma at #IFC263 https://t.co/X0j4ZDt7MR — Kevin Iole (@KevinI) June 8, 2021 Ngannou had asked, “What are we doing wrong?” That happened after Ngannnou discovered how much more Paul was making for his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather on Sunday than Ngannou makes fighting in the UFC.

    SNATCHING a BAFTA from Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston in 2012 should have marked Adulthood star Adam Deacon as the next big Hollywood entertainer. But for the council-estate born actor, now 38, his surprise win of the Rising Star award was the start of a terrifying downward spiral that would see him sectioned for a machete attack and given a criminal record. 13Adam found it harder to get work after winning the Rising Star BAFTACredit: Paul Rogers - The Times Earlier this month, actor and screenwriter Noel Clarke was accused of sexually harassing and bullying colleagues, something very familiar to Adam. He first met Noel when they were both acting in Kidulthood in 2006. Noel later became Adam's mentor but in 2010, their relationship catastrophically exploded. The pair butted heads over Adam's plan to make a film called Anuvahood, which Noel claimed was a rip-off of his works, leading to arguments and a rift between them. Adam's mental health started to suffer, culminating in a machete attack on a neighbour. The fallout resulted in a court case in 2015, during...
    After long days assisting my children with distance learning’s miseries, I watch Netflix. And I often think about a 2005 State Senate hearing and its enduring impact on California education. The hearing’s subject was the reappointment of Reed Hastings as president of the state Board of Education. Hastings, an entrepreneur and Democratic donor from Santa Cruz, had organized a successful ballot measure to make it easier to pass school bonds, launching a wave of school construction. He’d supported the state’s accountability system for schools, and backed public charter schools in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Hastings also had bipartisan support — appointed four years earlier by Democrat Gray Davis, he was nominated for re-appointment by Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger. But the hearing went sideways. Some didn’t like his blunt advocacy; bilingual educators complained that he had pushed too much English instruction time for English-language learners. The committee deadlocked, 2-2, blocking his reappointment. This unexpected result briefly made headlines. But Hastings didn’t fight back. After all, he still had his day job running a DVD subscription service — Netflix. Now, with school systems in crisis...

    Former President Donald Trump slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci as a “promoter,” who he listened to while in office but did not act on his advice because "he is wrong so much." “I thought rather than firing him, you know, I listened to him, but I didn't do what he said because, frankly, his record is not a good record,” Trump told Lisa Boothe of Fauci on her new podcast Monday. Trump said that he likes the nation's top infectious diseases expert on a personal level but that he didn't “elevate” him while he was in office, noting he’s been in the public spotlight for 40 years. “He's a great promoter. He's really a promoter more than anything else. And I think he's, you know, I always say he's a better pitcher of a baseball than he is at what he does because he is wrong so much,” he added.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont). Salwan Georges/The Washington Post via Getty Images Vermont high schoolers shared online school experiences during a town hall with Sen. Bernie Sanders. Students also described the impact of the pandemic on their mental health. Sanders also asked for feedback on how lawmakers can help advocate for more mental health access and support. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. High schoolers in Vermont candidly recounted their challenges with online school and its impact on mental health during a virtual town hall with Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday. The event was open to 1,000 participants and included a panel of high schoolers, who shared their experiences, and an opportunity for audience questions. Many schools across the country pivoted to virtual or hybrid (some online some in person) instruction a year ago, when lockdowns were implemented to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19. In Vermont, schools were asked to close from March 18 to April 6, and on March 26, the governor announced that in-person learning would be paused for...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said on CNN Wednesday night that he was not aware Donald Trump was vaccinated in January. It wasn’t publicly known that the former president and first lady got vaccinated until this week, a move that received criticism for not doing it in public to encourage more people. CNN’s Erin Burnett asked Fauci about the news and people saying at the time he could’ve done so publicly to “send this message to a very vaccine-resistant Republican base.” “Were you aware at the time that he got the vaccine?” Burnett asked. “No, Erin, I was not. I was not aware that he was vaccinated,” Fauci responded. Burnett asked if Trump missed a big opportunity to make a difference and convince his base the vaccines are safe. “Certainly there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that former President Trump is very, very popular among his constituencies,” Fauci said. “That would’ve been an extraordinarily good opportunity to get a signal to the people who would clearly have listened to him the way they listened to him in many other ways. He has...

    (CNN)When contractors came to her Himalayan forest to cut down thousands of trees, Gaura Devi rallied the women of her village and marched into the woods.Armed with only their bare hands and fierce determination to save the forest upon which their livelihoods depended, Gaura Devi and the women put themselves between the trees and the contractors' chainsaws.The state government had hatched a plan to draw the men of the village away to another town, believing the women would not put up a fight.They were mistaken. Gaura Devi stared down the contractors and compelled them to leave the forest. Her actions that day, in March 1974, became legendary -- it led to a 20-year ban on the felling of trees above 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) in the region.

    Nikki Haley is distancing herself from former President Donald Trump in a new interview, saying he “let us down” and predicting he will no longer “be in the picture” going forward. Haley, the former South Carolina governor who served as ambassador to the United Nations under Trump, spoke with Politico about the aftermath of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol in a profile published Friday, as Trump is accused of inciting the riot in a second impeachment trial. She told Politico the former president has now “lost any sort of political viability he was going to have” and predicted he will not run for federal office again. “I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture,” Haley said of Trump. “I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far.” Haley went a step further by saying Republicans shouldn’t have followed Trump and that he let the party down. “We need to acknowledge he let us down,” Haley said. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have...
    Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in 2017 (SPUTNIK/AFP via Getty Images) An American who translated the phone calls between Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin characterised the chats as relatively chummy. Marina Gross, a translator and long-time employee at the US State Department, was the only American to listen in on the world leaders’ conversations. According to Politico, Ms Gross told her associates that listening in on the men was like “eavesdropping on two friends chatting in a bar”. It is unclear if that statement was made in response to the tone of the conversation, the familiarity between the men, or the subject matter that was discussed during the calls. The two men spoke over the phone at least a dozen times during Mr Trump’s presidency. The content of those calls, while secret, will be accessible by Joe Biden. “They don’t need our approval to see those [records],” a former Trump White House official said, referring to Mr Biden and his national security team. “Biden owns all the call materials. There is only one president at a time.”...

    (CBS Local)– Joel Kinnaman has been in movies like “RoboCop” and “Suicide Squad” and TV shows like “House of Cards,” but he’s never had to do a Philadelphia accent on screen.

    Peter Kramer/Getty There is no question that, with just a week left in his one term, President Donald Trump is a political mess of his own making. A more striking development is that he might also be in a criminal mess of his own making, but time will tell. What remains clear is that Trump put himself in the position he is in. And perhaps his biggest mistake is choosing which old New York City pal to listen to. Had Donald Trump listened to Geraldo Rivera and not Rudy Giuliani in the days that followed election day, he would have avoided impeachment and the disgrace that will forever mar the last chapter of his wild time in the White House. That’s right. Had Trump only heeded Geraldo’s advice — which was, candidly, equal parts wise and banal — he’d be sitting in a political catbird seat. While Giuliani pushed Trump to wholeheartedly embrace a baseless and dangerous assault on the U.S. election, Geraldo consistently advised him to concede gracefully. Let’s imagine the scenario: Having conceded the election, Trump would continue...
    Gwinnett County voters at the polls, 2020 election. Democratic candidate for Gwinnett County, Georgia, Sheriff Keybo Taylor ran on ending the department’s 287(g) agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a racist policy that allows local law enforcement to act as mass deportation agents. In November Taylor won that race, defeating Republican Lou Solis 57% to 43%. Then late last week, newly sworn in Sheriff Taylor fulfilled his promise and terminated the policy. “Gwinnett County, you spoke and I listened,” Taylor said according to Gwinnett Daily Post. “We’re replacing these programs with a couple of initiatives that will address some problems that concerns our community.”  As Daily Kos has previously noted, sheriffs have helped ICE carry out its agenda through the 287(g) program, which deputizes local law enforcement to act as federal immigration agents. But it’s a deeply flawed program that the Justice Department itself said has resulted in racial profiling. Some immigrants have even been separated from their families after getting stopped for a simple driving violation. ”Studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found that 287(g) agreements in the state were primarily used to target offenders who...
    MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle blasted President Donald Trump’s latest comments on the 2020 Election while demanding answers for the lack of intervention from Republican leaders. On Thursday, Morning Joe discussed Trump’s 46 minute, conspiracy theory-laden online speech, which Mika Brzezinski described as a “diatribe full of lies.” As Brzezinski asked where will Republicans finally draw the line with Trump, Barnicle answered that the country faces a “scary” situation since the president “walked away” from the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed approximately 240,000 Americans. “He has walked away from these duties,” Barnicle said. “He has left the field. He’s surrounded by people who have not heard or answered the call of the country.” As he spoke of how “the country wants leadership,” Barnicle remarked that former president George W. Bush acted as a leader in the aftermath of 9/11, so he wondered “where are the Republican United States senators who perhaps heard of or listened to that 46-minute mentally ill rant last night from the president?” Anyone who listened or heard what Donald Trump said last night and were commissioned...

    See, Tom Brady will shake hands with an opponent while on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made sure Tom Brady shook Derek Carr‘s hand on Sunday afternoon.

    The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg said President Trump's words on the campaign trail has caused her to sink into a "depression." "What is he talking about? I’m in a depression now, because of him. Every time I see him, he depresses me. Everything he says is pissing me off and depressing me," Goldberg said on Monday on The View. Goldberg was venting frustrations with Trump after showing a clip of him at a rally on Sunday, where he criticized the effect a Joe Biden presidency would have on America. "If you vote for Biden, he will surrender your jobs to China. He will surrender your future to the virus," Trump said in the clip. "He's going to lock down, he's gonna want us to lock down. He'll listen to the scientists. If I listened totally to the scientists, we would, right now, have a country that would be in a massive depression, instead of, well, like a rocketship." "I don’t know what rocket he’s on, but I’m getting off the rocket he’s on. That’s ridiculous, but...
    President Donald Trump went off on Dr. Anthony Fauci on a campaign call Monday, calling him a "nice guy" but also a "disaster" and saying that most Americans are tired of hearing about the coronavirus. CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins was given access to the phone call, during which Trump reportedly claimed that if his administration had listened to Fauci, more than half a million people would have died. "People are tired of COVID. I have these huge rallies," Trump said. "People are saying whatever. Just leave us alone. They're tired of it. People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots ... Fauci is a nice guy. He's been here for 500 years." "Fauci is a disaster. If I listened to him, we'd have 500,000 deaths," he added, going on to say it would be 700,000 or 800,000. "If there's a reporter on, you can have it just the way I said it, I couldn't care less." Trump: "Fauci is a disaster. If I listened to him, we’d have 500,000...

    President Trump said the US would be in the throes of a “massive depression” if he had “totally” heeded advice from scientists on coronavirus-related lockdown measures. Trump made the economic prediction at his Sunday rally in Carson City, Nevada, adding that the country would endure another Great Depression if Joe Biden is elected president. “He’s gonna lock down. This guy wants to lock down,” Trump said of Biden, referring to the coronavirus lockdowns for public safety. “He’ll listen to the scientists. If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression.” The president said that instead, under his watch the US economy is recovering from the pandemic. “We’re like a rocketship. Take a look at the numbers,” Trump told the crowd. The US, at nearly 220,000 deaths, has lost more people to the coronavirus than any other country in the world. “This election is a choice between a Trump super recovery, which we’re in right now, or a Biden depression,” the president told the crowd. “Depression — just...
    President Donald Trump defended his handling of the coronavirus pandemic on Sunday at a campaign rally in Carson City, Nevada. He mocked former Vice President Joe Biden for repeatedly saying that he would follow the advice of scientists regarding public lockdowns and economic shutdowns. “If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression,” Trump said. He noted that the punishing lockdowns fueled the misuse of alcohol and drugs and caused a rise in depression and suicide. “The cure cannot be worse than the problem itself,” Trump said. He said that the economic and job numbers were going up “like a rocket ship” after the lockdowns ended. “I say, you get out there and things are opening up, tell your governor to open up, tell everybody to open up,” Trump said. He criticized Democrat governors for keeping their states closed, citing New York, Michigan, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. He accused them of doing it for political reasons to hurt his reelection, “Get the places open, let’s go,” Trump concluded.

Of all the books about Donald Trump this year, the one that best explains the man, his rise to power and his inability to be president recalls the stellar work of a journalist who died almost four years ago. The book is Without Compromise. a collection of columns by the late Wayne Barrett of The Village Voice, the first journalist to cover Trump seriously. Way back in 1979, when The New York Times was running puff pieces that helped propel Trump to national celebrity, Barrett revealed the real Trump with hard facts and moral clarity. : Just three of the collection's 19 reprinted pieces are about Trump, but they are the foundation of all Trump coverage. They are rich with lasting insight and reasonably can be read as the alpha and omega of Trump coverage. The Voice was shuttered two years ago. Then the Times woke up, seeing the light on the Trump it so utterly failed to investigate during the 2016 campaign. It noted Barrett's "obsessive...
    Early Friday on the heels of the announcement of President Donald Trump and first lady Melanie Trump’s positive COVID-19 tests, CNN political Carl Bernstein wondered if Trump would started listening to “the scientists” given his diagnosis. “The basic fact of our national life right now is an unknown quantity in our politics, in our markets, in our business,” he said. “There’s now a dividing line really in how we approach COVID. Are we finally now going to let the science prevail? Is the President going to say it is time for the scientists to be listened to by myself? We have a stark landscape in front of us.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

Ginsburg was the second woman to be appointed to the high court and served as a justice for more than 27 years.  Ginsburg’s flag-draped casket was carrier into the Great Hall Wednesday morning, past her former law clerks who lined the steps.

    I have devoted my entire adult life to learning about money. That might sound like cruel-and-unusual punishment, but I’ve mostly enjoyed it. For more than three decades, I’ve spent my days perusing the business pages, reading finance books, scanning academic studies and talking to countless folks about their finances. Yet, despite this intense financial education, it took me a decade or more to learn many of life’s most important money lessons and, indeed, some key insights have only come to me in recent years. Here are 10 things I wish I’d been told in my 20s—or told more loudly, so I actually listened: 1. A small home is the key to a big portfolio. My first wife and I bought a modest house, because we worried that we couldn’t really afford anything bigger. I ended up living in that house for two decades. Financially, it turned out to be one of the smartest things I’ve ever done, because it allowed me to save great gobs of money. That’s clear to me in retrospect. But I wish I’d known it was...

    During CNN’s coverage of the 2020 Republican National Convention on Wednesday, host Chris Cuomo stated that he doesn’t know how people can think Vice President Mike Pence’s speech to a crowd with “no masks, nobody had to be tested” is “the right message.” Host Don Lemon said, “If you listened to the convention tonight, if you listened to Larry Kudlow, it’s in the rearview mirror, in the past tense. It’s not. I just had a friend who died, tonight, from complications from COVID.” Cuomo then stated, “And they were speaking to a crowd tonight, no masks, nobody had to be tested. I don’t know how they can believe that’s the right message. I really don’t.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills believes if the NFL listened to Colin Kaepernick’s message back in 2016 when he knelt during the national anthem to bring awareness to social injustice, the league could have saved lives. Stills shared his thoughts on social media in response to a video of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell being interviewed by Fox Sports 1’s Emmanuel Acho during his video series called, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man.” PACKERS' AARON RODGERS ON JACOB BLAKE SHOOTING: 'THERE'S A SYSTEMIC PROBLEM' “He can say whatever he wants to say now, but in a sense, if we would have taken a more stern stance and he would have listened to us in the beginning of this, there would have been so many lives that could have been saved,” Stills said. “There's a lot of progress that we could have made within our law enforcement, within our police, so it's a nice gesture, I guess, to say he wishes he would have done something different, but look at the NFL.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league should have “listened earlier” to Colin Kaepernick, the former quarterback who started a movement of kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequity. “I’m a big believer in dialogue, and frankly, I talk to my kids all the time and others about [how] you really don’t learn until you’re uncomfortable. … It gives you an opportunity to learn,” Goodell said at the start of an interview with former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho as part of his “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man” series. Goodell was asked what he wished he knew now, in 2020, about the protests that Kaepernick and others started when they first began before the 2016 season. The commissioner said he wished he had known “just what was going on in the communities." “I didn’t know what was going on in the communities,” he said before noting that he has spoken with a number of players about issues of racial inequality since protests began across the country following the Memorial Day death of...
