The host of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on NBC harshly criticized senior White House advisor Jared Kushner for America’s COVID-19 testing failures.

“More than 155,000 Americans have now died from the coronavirus pandemic,” Meyers noted. “Cases are rising in more than 20 states. The U.S. now accounts for one-quarter of all coronavirus deaths in the world.”

“And in some parts of the country, people are waiting as long as two-weeks to get their test results — which is insane. The whole point of testing is to find cases, isolate them and trace their contacts. If it takes two weeks, it’s pointless.”

“We could’ve avoided all of this with a coordinated national testing strategy from the beginning. In fact, Vanity Fair reported last week that we almost had one, until Jared Kushner slithered out of his West World milk-bath and f*cked it up,” he explained.

“I guess it’s not surprising to learn that Jared Kushner is a sociapath,” Meyers explained. “I mean, look at him — he looks like Hannibal Lecter in a CW reboot of ‘Silence of the Lambs.'”

“But not only is that evil, it’s stupid. This is an infectious disease, this virus has travelled all over the world, did they not realize this could travel to red states, too?” he wondered. “It’s a perfect plan, as long as nobody from New York ever goes to Florida.”

Health care group sponsoring South Dakota indoor country music festival that doesn’t require masks: report

Published

On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that South Dakota is poised to hold an indoor country music festival that won't require face masks and has not yet confirmed whether they will require social distancing — and it's being sponsored by a local nonprofit health care organization.

"Sanford Health of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is presenting the Oct. 24 event in conjunction with the state’s governor, Kristi Noem," reported Michael Daly. "She endorsed the Sturgis motorcycle rally last month, where nearly half a million people gathered, largely without masks or social distancing, for 10 days before returning home, which a report by a team of economists with the Center for Health Economics & Policy Studies at San Diego State University estimates to have resulted in more than 260,000 COVID-19 cases. She will now be hosting the annual Governor’s Pheasant Hunt, which this year will include a musical event."

Top Mueller deputy reveals why he chickened out of forcing Donald Trump Jr. to testify

Published

One of the mysteries left in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation was why Donald Trump Jr., who infamously met with Russian agents to discuss the hacking of Hillary Clinton's stolen emails, was never forced to testify.

Andrew Weissmann, who served as one of Mueller's top deputies during the probe, has now given an answer.

In an excerpt of Weismann's upcoming book on the investigation obtained by The Atlantic, Weissmann claims that Mueller was too worried about the president shutting down the entire probe if they subpoenaed his family members to testify.

‘He told us to use his words against him’: Early AM protest outside Lindsey Graham’s home over RBG replacement

Published

on

"In the spirit of RBG, we will not allow a double standard in how our Congress deals with late-term Supreme Court appointments."

Taking Sen. Lindsey Graham up on his 2016 advice to use his words opposing the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland against him should a Supreme Court seat open in the final year of a Republican president's first term, a group of demonstrators gathered outside of the South Carolina Republican's Washington, D.C. residence early Monday morning demanding that he oppose the filling of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat until after the November election.
