How COVID-19 Fundamentally Reshaped Biden’s Campaign For The White House

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joe Biden was fresh off winning the Michigan primary and effectively capturing the Democratic presidential nomination, a prize he’d sought for the better part of three decades. Instead of plotting a strategy to build momentum, he was contemplating an abrupt halt. He gathered his senior team in a conference room on the 19th floor of his campaign’s Philadelphia headquarters, the type of in-person meeting that would soon be deemed a public health risk. A former surgeon gener...

Melania tells a joke in West Bend, Wisconsin.

"Joe Biden says he could do a better job leading this nation. Apparently, when you hide in a basement, you feel safe communicating your wishful thinking." I love the rough-hewn lumber background.

Now, Lady Gaga was mocked for that effort at performing American rural culture — redneckface, we might call it. I’m voting for America #vote #election2020— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga)...

Even Garden Writers who Hate Trump are Defending the Rose Garden Upgrade

The announcement from the office of Melania Trump that the Rose Garden is getting an upgrade next month came at the worst possible time.

(And then there’s who she’s married to, but no need to cover that topic here.) So what does she have in store for the hallowed ground that is the White House Rose G...
