You can’t make this stuff up: Trump held Hanukkah celebration tonight, five days early, ahead of his Mar-a-Lago getaway. ?

The White House is under lockdown orders from the U.S. Secret Service due to protests outside the gates over George Floyd. A dozen reporters, myself included, still inside the West Wing.

Crowd cheers for @BarackObama  as his motorcade departs the Museum of the American Revolution.

FLAG: Was Pence leaving Colts game a political stunt? Reporters were told to stay in van bc "there may be an early departure from the game."

Trump, today: “We have rounded the final turn.” Fauci, today: “We need to hunker down and get through this fall and winter, because it’s not going to be easy.”
