More than a second gentleman: why Doug Emhoff is Kamala Harris’ secret weapon | Hadley Freeman

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 ...

How Joe Biden went from being a kid from Scranton to a six-term Senator, VP, and now the President-elect

Presidential historian Jon Meacham was speechwriting for Joe Biden and (apparently) did not disclose it to MSNBC.

And MSNBC has cut him off as a paid contributor, according to Fox News. Meacham worked on Biden's victory speech and then appeared on MSNBC commenting on the speech. MSNBC's Brian Williams asked him, "I’m not the historian that you are, and I don’t have the Pulitzer that you do, but do you concur that is the way we are used to hearing from our presidents?" To which Meacham responded, "Absolutely."The implication of the question — as I see it there, out of context — is that Trump didn't speak in ...

27 photos of some of the most adorable dogs to live in the White House

President Barack Obama and his dog Bo were very close. Getty Dogs are the most popular pet for a president to have during his time in the White House. President Donald Trump broke the presidential tradition when he didn't bring a dog into the White House, saying after two years in office that he would feel "a little phony doing so." President-elect Joe Biden is poised to reset the tradition of dogs in the Executive Mansion with his two German shepherds, one of whom would be the first shelt...

Digging carefully into what the FIRST STEP Act has, and has not, really achieved

Malcolm C.
