Per pooler @KThomasDC  : “Mr. Biden wore a black mask covering his mouth and nose and a dark suit. He was joined by his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, for a brief wreath-laying ceremony at the site. Dr. Biden was wearing a black-and-white dress. The Bidens arrived at the site at 11:28 a.m”

Do you know or someone you know play the bugle or trumpet? If so, some folks need your help on #MemorialDay :

MORE: The Bidens “placed a wreath of white flowers at the memorial. They paused for about a minute before the site and then walked to their nearby motorcade.” (More)

Biden was asked if he had a #MemorialDay  message: “It was difficult to hear what he said - his mask remained on during the brief exchange, but he told reporters: ‘Never forget the sacrifices that these men and women made. Never, ever, forget.’” (Per pooler @KThomasDC  )

“Women are seeking the Democratic and Republican nominations in all six of the state’s primary races for three congressional seats. In each of those races, at least one Latina or one Native American woman is running in her respective party’s primary.”

"He's a fool, an absolute fool when he talks that way" @JoeBiden  says in response to @DanaBashCNN  question about President Trump's criticism of the former VP wearing a mask at a #MemorialDay  stop.

@JoeBiden  @DanaBashCNNDana  asks: Does a mask project strength or weakness? "Leadership, " @JoeBidensays . "It presents and projects as leadership. "

Gracias, @lorimontenegro  for the shoutout! I have always admired your important work for an important audience.


Wow: @CBSThisMorning  says it asked 20 GOP lawmakers to be a guest this AM to talk about Trump. And asked the WH for someone. ALL declined.

The worst anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history took place today just days after the largest attempted assassination of political leaders in U.S. history.

MORE NEWS: @SenMikeLee  and @RandPaul  emerge from all-senators briefing to say they now support a Democratic plan for a new War Powers Resolution. Lee called the briefing “insulting” and worst he’s had from military officials in his 9 years here.

JUST IN: In a call with Black business leaders, @JoeBiden  apologizes for his AM comments to @cthagod : " “I should not have been so cavalier. I've never, never, ever taken the African American community for granted." (more)

Just now in the Intel hearing: A male GOP senator (Burr) tells a female Dem senator (Harris) to pipe down. Where have we seen this before?

SCOOP: White House is restricting lawmakers from visiting Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, aides say

Raids underway in Calif.; Texas; Northern Va.; N.C.; Fla.; Hudson Valley region of New York; Kan.

JUST IN: Senate just unanimously passed a resolution requiring mandatory sexual harassment training for all senators, staff and interns. Bipartisan proposal was crafted in recent days by Sen. Grassley, Klobuchar and others

Remember: When asked about the future of his presidential campaign this past week, @BernieSanders  said he had no time to discuss that and was “dealing with a f—-ing global crisis.” Tonight, he is focused on his campaign instead:
