US COVID cases just surged past *9 million* And Trump is claiming: -COVID is not that bad (229K+ deaths) -Doctors & hospitals are jacking up death tolls to make more money (No evidence of this) -Too much attention is being paid to COVID (Infections are on the rise in 47 states)

President Trump is now complaining that *FoxNews* is too hard on him. He said, "I don't know what the hell happened to Fox ... We still have a great ones at Fox ... It's not like it used to be ... Somewhere along we lost Fox and that's OK. But that's a big difference."

American Medical Association is now pushing back on Trump's false claim that doctors & hospitals are jacking up death tolls to make more money saying, "The suggestion is ... a malicious, outrageous, and completely misguided charge."

Obama going after Trump in MI: “He’s still worrying about his inauguration crowd being smaller than mine...He’s still talking about that. Does he have nothing better to worry about? Did no one come to his birthday party when he was a kid? Was he traumatized? What’s with crowds?”

Trump campaign is raising money for a prolonged political & legal fight long after Nov. 3 & recently began automatically checking a box to withdraw additional weekly contributions from online donors through mid-December — nearly 6 weeks after Election Day.

President Trump today at the White House said to me: “Be nice. Don't be threatening.” I’m not the first human being, woman, black person or journalist to be told that while doing a job. My take: Be steady. Stay focused. Remember your purpose. And, always press forward.

George Floyd's brother, Philonise, on his conversation w/ Pres Trump on @MSNBC : "It was so fast. He didn't give me the opportunity to even speak. It was hard. I was trying to talk to him but he just kept like pushing me off like 'I don’t want to hear what you’re talking about.'"

Here is what was happening outside the White House as President Trump was giving his Rose Garden address and saying he is an “ally of all peaceful protestors.” Peaceful protestors being tear gassed outside of the WH gates. I confirmed because I was teargassed along with them.

Important story: A Florida officer who knocked over a seated protester just before a peaceful protest against police abuse turned violent has been reviewed by internal affairs for using force 79 times in his roughly three-and-half years on the force.

John Lewis asked The NYT to publish this on the day of his funeral. It is necessary reading. He writes, “When you see something that is not right, you must say something ... Democracy is not a state. It is an act, and each generation must do its part.”
