William Barr appears on Fox News (screen grab)

U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), who just tested positive for the coronavirus, was very near Bill Barr on Tuesday before the Attorney General gave testimony to the House Judiciary Committee. Politico reports the Attorney General will now be tested for the virus.

“Rep. Gohmert, who was without a mask, stood outside the men’s bathroom where Barr went before he walked into the ‘hearing’ room,” Beavers tweeted Wednesday. She notes the both men were maskless and “were within arms length.”

“Gohmert approached the AG and exchanged a comment or two.”

I know the body is still figuratively warm, but did anyone really think fo... (more…)

‘Breaking badly’: Morning Joe has bad news for Donald Trump

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was facing an "inflection point" ahead of the first presidential debate.

His support over the past few days has been dropping, in some places precipitously enough so to concern his advisers. We showed you yesterday polls from two of the most important states, Wisconsin and Michigan. and in Wisconsin, down 10 points. He's losing support there. In Michigan, down eight points.
