ICYMI: Your TPM Weekend News Roundup

Desperate To Help Trump’s Campaign: The Trump administration continues to politicize its response to COVID-19 to boost the President’s reelection prospects. On Monday, experts warned TPM about the “disastrous” effects of political officials pressuring the CDC to manipulate the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, a key tool that tracks the spread of the virus.  On another front, the Trump administration doubled down on its pre-election timetable for a COVID-19 vaccine — which scientists agree...

Fact-checking Mark Meadows's misleading statements on mask efficacy

As the US continues to combat the coronavirus, wearing a mask has become a politicized issue. A day after Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suggested masks might be even more important than a vaccine in the fight against the virus, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows argued that masks don't actually make a difference in stopping the spread of the virus.

What to expect when you're expecting a COVID-19 vaccine

The Trump administration's communications on a COVID-19 vaccine haven't exactly been seamless.CDC Director Robert Redfield testified Wednesday that a vaccine won't be "fully available to the American public" until probably "late second quarter, third quarter 2021." That's consistent with estimates from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief Dr. Anthony Fauci, National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins, and Moncef Slaoui, the chief scientist at Ope...

Meadows: CDC Chief’s 2021 Vaccine Timeline ‘Not Based’ On Info From Those ‘Closest To The Process’

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows asserted on Thursday morning that Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield didn’t have his facts straight when he told Congress that a COVID-19 vaccine wouldn’t be widely available until 2021, contradicting President Donald Trump’s insistence that the vaccine would be ready in October. When the hosts of “Fox and Friends” asked who was correct, Meadows claimed it was Trump “based on what I know behind the scenes, how quic...

A bipartisan group of House lawmakers unveiled a stimulus plan to send a 2nd round of $1,200 direct payments and reinstate federal unemployment benefits

US Capitol. J. Scott Applewhite/AP Photo A bipartisan group of House lawmakers unveiled a $1.5 trillion stimulus plan on Tuesday. The plan is aimed at breaking through the impasse between the White House and top Democrats, but it faces long odds of becoming law. It would reinstate federal unemployment benefits with a two-month transition period, and later cap them to $600 so people wouldn't earn more out-of-work than on the job. The proposal would also send a second round of $1,200 stimulu...

Bahrain becomes latest Arab nation to recognize Israel

By MATTHEW LEE | AP Diplomatic Writer WASHINGTON — Bahrain has become the latest Arab nation to agree to normalize ties with Israel as part of a broader diplomatic push by President Donald Trump and his administration to further ease the Jewish state’s relative isolation in the Middle East and find common ground with nations that share its wariness of Iran.

GOP’s Skinny COVID Relief Bill Fails, Another Indicator Of Bleak Outlook For Economic Help

As predicted, Senate Republicans’ “skinny” COVID-19 relief package fell Thursday along party lines.  Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was the one defection, a move he previewed, announcing his objection to government spending. In that small way, it was a win for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who successfully wrangled a splintered caucus into line to stand behind the legislation.  Democratic leadership was vocal about their opposition to the legislation, which they view as pathetical...

Meadows: I ‘Would Not Have Recommended’ Giving Woodward So Much Trump Access

Trump Tries To Get Into Navy’s Good Graces Amid Week Of Military Remarks Gone Awry

On Saturday, the Navy announced that Catholic Masses at San Diego-area bases are ending as it declined to renew contracts with Catholic priests — a decision the department explained as a cost-cutting move, according to The ...

McConnell proposes ‘targeted’ coronavirus aid, Dems say it’s not enough

By ANDREW TAYLOR | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday the Senate would vote on a trimmed-down Republican coronavirus relief package, though it has a slim chance of passage in the face of Democrats’ insistence for more sweeping aid. The Kentucky Republican released the approximately $500 billion measure as senators returned to Washington for an abbreviated pre-election session, as hopes are dimming for another coronavirus relief bill — or much else. ...
