Karen Bass on Biden VP on The Breakfast Club: "I think the African-American women who are all under consideration are all dynamite and would all be fantastic... the idea of having a black woman on the ticket sends the right message." (via @DaniellaMicaela )

Biden: "Donald Trump faces a real test and he's facing the basic threshold to be president: the duty to care for the entire country, not just his reelection prospects."

My daily average screen time is so atrocious I can’t share it but are any of you who are also bad willing to share so I can compare and feel a little better?

New: Joe Biden is believed to have narrowed down his personal shortlist of VP picks to a handful of women. Among the most seriously being considered: Rep. Karen Bass, Sen. Kamala Harris & Susan Rice. w/ @jeffzeleny  @JasWright3 

@jeffzeleny  @JasWright3Biden  team has not informed any woman who has been considered for VP in earnest yet that they are out of the running, with one source familiar telling CNN that currently, *eleven* women are officially in consideration.

@jeffzeleny  @JasWright3Rep . Karen Bass’ recent emergence as a very serious contender has come as some of her colleagues in the House, California Democrats and donors have been making an intense push for her behind the scenes. Details in our piece:

@jeffzeleny  @JasWright3Biden  told reporters he would choose a running mate the first week of August. Two aides told CNN timing of an announcement is more likely to be pushed back until week of Aug. 10. But Biden's advisers gave him a deadline of next week to make up his mind.

@jeffzeleny  @JasWright3Sen . Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Val Demings & Sen. Tammy Duckworth have also gone through extensive vetting by Biden team. "If he's decided, he hasn't told anyone. But knowing him, he will not make a final decision until the very last moment. "

As you all know some of the worst Extremely Entitled And Embarrassing Human Behavior can be found in Manhattan and I am very sorry to confirm that it is out in full force this weekend!!!!

Seriously urge everyone to watch this entire question from a woman at GOP #Obamacare  townhall in Tennessee:

I spoke with Avenatti's wife on the phone. “I haven’t see Michael in months. It’s a complete fabrication," she said. “Bruises on my face? It is insanity. He wouldn’t hit anybody. Especially a woman. He’s got two daughters.”

Really important: Under Obamacare, 64-yo making $26,500 would pay $1,700 in 2026 Under GOP plan, same person would pay $14,600

Trump will extremely not like this graphic

The US Office of Special Counsel says WH aide Kellyanne Conway violated the Hatch Act on two occasions — interviews on CNN and Fox — last year when she advocated for and against candidates in the Alabama Senate special election.

Jim Gensheimer, who has been friends w/ Christine Blasey Ford for 8 years, just gave me this statement -- he says she has previously told him about "her need to have more than one exit door in her bedroom to prevent her from being trapped."
