Correspondent for @NewsHour, the commercial-free craft beer of news (with less attitude). Chester Arthur is still my favorite president.

Latest Scoops

MCCONNELL and POCAHONTAS: Asked about remarks last night in which he called Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas" - does he see that as fair game?

McConnell: I have no comment about that.
MCCONNELL NOW on SAUDI ARABIA: "This particular incident will really challenge (our relationship)."
THIS. NEW: McConnell was just asked if it's possible to move President Trump toward cutting/reforming entitlements.

McConnell: "I don't think so."

He went on to agree that entitlements will have to wait for another president and bipartisan action.

(@Phil_Mattingly's q)
MCCCONNELL NOW: It's pretty obvious we have very competitive races (all over). It's like a knife fight, everyone is doing what they can to win.
MCCONNELL to us now: touts Kavanaugh effect in Montana, Missouri and Indiana Senate races specifically.

Says he also sees continued rise in interest from GOP and Kavanaugh is one reason.
QUESTIONS FOR LEADER MCCONNELL?: Send them my way.
REQUEST for you Twitter.

Looking for thoughtful, **undecided voters in New Jersey*. For upcoming story.

Know any? Would be grateful for recommendations! Send Twitter handles or message me so we can DM.
Sidenote to add to all of this: Those of us watching, just saw Kanye enter his phone password.

And it looked really uncomplicated.
KANYE REPLAY NOW from Oval Office and indeed a long continuous sentence. So far including:
- Anti-Trump bias (and anti-MAGA hat bias)
- Growing up w/ out dad at home
- His business and millions/billions
- Bringing jobs
- Montessori
- theWaldorf-Astoria.

Trump has yet to speak.
REMINDER, Haley is one of:
- 6 women on the Trump cabinet. (Out of 24 members.)

- 4 people of color on the cabinet.

- If she were replaced by a white man, the cabinet would go from 66% white men to 70% white men.

- The nation, in contrast, is 31% white men.
