How Nancy Pelosi is outplaying Trump on impeachment

Published

on

During a CNN “New Day” discussion on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) upbraiding a former Fox News reporter on Thursday for asking her if she hates Donald Trump, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman explained that the California Democrat has been one step ahead of the president when it comes to the ongoing impeachment proceedings.

Before Haberman explained how Pelosi has been out-maneuvering the president, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin praised Pelosi for her response to reporter James Rosen, now with Sinclair Broadcasting.

“‘Don’t mess with me,'” Toobin began, by quoting the House Speaker. “One of the many iconic Nancy Pelosi moments from this period. You know, it wasn’t that long ago when there was a rebellion in the House of Representatives to try to get a new Speaker of the House. She has so commanded this process and so much taken charge and so much become even more beloved.”

Haberman concurred after remarking, “One thing everybody forgets about Donald Trump, he won an election people predicted he wasn’t going to.”

“He has a political base, but he does not understand Washington, he still doesn’t understand Washington,” she continued. “And a lot of people around him don’t understand the nuances of Washington. Nancy Pelosi does — this is a process she knows how to navigate. It has been messy between what has happened with conflicts with [House Judiciary Democrat Jerry] Nadler.”

“She has found a way to do it without rocking the boat, and that is not nothing,” Haberman conceded.

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough lamented the repeated failures and missed opportunities by President Donald Trump as he faced the coronavirus outbreak.

The "Morning Joe" host criticized the president for claiming it was not the federal government's job to test Americans for the virus, and instead shifted responsibility to the states and their governors.

"This is a perfect 'the buck stops here' contrast with Donald Trump, saying, 'I am not responsible,'" Scarborough said. "What we can talk about is ventilators, the national Defense Production Act. We could talk about all the ways that Donald Trump keeps trying to pass the buck, keeps trying to say, 'I'm not responsible.'"

Published

on

News surfaced yesterday that a tiger at New York's Bronx Zoo tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The discovery raises new questions about whether pets can contract the virus, and if it is contagious from pets (or zoo animals) to humans.

This article first appeared in Salon.

Nadia, a four-year-old Malayan tiger who lives at the Bronx Zoo, was suffering from a dry cough and loss of appetite, which prompted the test for novel coronavirus. Nadia's symptoms were first noticed on March 27, and zoo officials decided to test her "out of an abundance of caution," according to a statement from the Wildlife Conservation Society.
