Will @SenAlexander  go easy on Dr. Fauci at next week’s Senate hearing: “People know me better than that...Look, I will ask the questions I need to ask. But remember, about half of our members are Democrats and they get to ask questions, too.” (4/5)

A #covid19  #tbt  today - @SenAlexander  on zoom with me for #thedailydc  podcast today taking his iconic red and black plaid 1996 campaign shirt back to the future with a plaid mask. I told him all its missing is the…

“I'll be on a call & suddenly a 2-year-old is running past me, you know, because she doesn't want to have her diaper put on & it's like, naked baby butt running past on a Zoom conference call.” Relatable tales from @RepDuckworth ⁩ #mothersday

Such a good piece from @jeffzeleny  from North Carolina about the re-opening struggle in the RNC's host state this summer

Talked to @GovMurphy ⁩ on @CNNSotu ⁩ this am. He - like other governors - warned of major cuts to teachers, health care workers w/ out more federal dollars

New: A source familiar w/ the presidents thinking says that after watching media coverage this weekend about Mick Mulvaney’s news conference & his attempts to clean it up, the President is increasingly frustrated with what he sees as his inability to communicate on impeachment
