0 Note when asked about “systematic and institutional racism” Trump doesn’t deny: “Well, I think there is everywhere,” But he doesn’t buy Woodward’s white “cave” guilt-framing. Is that a bad answer? https://t.co/oujw4v7llU

0 “Mercedes-Benz, a German company, and Volvo, a Swedish company, both opened plants in South Carolina in 2018, but the projects broke ground in 2015, before Trump was elected.

0 New York Times’ emails go to the regular inbox. New Yorker’s emails go to the regular inbox. Buzzfeed and Breitbart go to the regular inbox.

0 Thread. The Atlantic story may have served an important pro-Biden function even if voters don’t care about it: It pushed the protests/riots down in the news (if not off the front page). https://t.co/mAtndYM8uO

0 THINKING INSIDE THE BLOB: Tonelson on McFaul v. York. https://t.co/9T5mqpKiS4 Me: Of course McFaul wasn’t advocating a coup. But he suggests (even in the modified version) that the President must please the Intelligence Community. Can’t the IC be wrong?
