A Few More Hill GOPers Push Trump To Accept Reality As More Legal Battles Fall Flat

I’m not obsessed with Doug, but he could probably be my pub quiz subjectThere is much to say about Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s historic win, but I’d like to focus on a man called Doug. Doug Emhoff is a lawyer and – more relevantly to your interests and mine – Harris’s husband, and unless you are part of the #DougHive, Doug’s devoted (and, one suspects, mainly female) fans, it’s likely you don’t know much about him.This in itself is astonishing, given that women are generally discussed through ...
