always slay it – a Biden speech for our times

An excellent speech pairing small details like “muzzle” with “mask”, carrying throughout the imagery of light and dark, and tight in length. It was well crafted and well-delivered.

Trump to Fauci: “I answered this 15 times. You don't have to answer.”

Yesterday’s presser was quite something, what with miracle cures, Trump freaking out as the press starts asking questions about the 70-day delay, and Fauci not telling Trump to stuff it.
