Assignment desk: I'd read a story about why more Republicans are resisting wearing masks in public settings.

A day late to this, but what a fantastic, revealing read about @JasonIsbell  and the stuff he went through to birth his latest album.

Ummm. “When asked if there was a chance the presidential election could be postponed past November 3 due to the pandemic, Kushner said that isn’t his decision. “I’m not sure I can commit one way or the other, but right now that’s the plan,” he said.

These are an abomination. So why does my hand keep going into the bag and shoveling them into my mouth?

Some rare daylight between DeVos and Trump on fully reopening schools. Everyone with school age children will want to read the details on what it will take to go back to school.

At the risk of blowing up my mentions, I concluded, while mowing my lawn today and listening to a ‘90s Pandora station, that the @SpinDoctorsBand  may be the most underrated band of that era. The tunes brought joy, and that’s all that matters.

Two kids, two adults, three meals a day, end of a long week at 10 pm on Friday. It used to be a nice kitchen island in the before times.

I'm on so many video conferences for work, then on video conferences with friends and families, it's only a matter of time before I sign off "OK, love you" during a work call. I mean, I do love my Politico family, but it'd be weird if I said it on a call, right?

The Pentagon is on edge, worried about civilian-military relations and President Trump's use of troops in American cities. An important story tonight from @BryanDBender  and @laraseligman 


Sen. Tom Cotton release this morning: "We will emerge stronger from this challenge, we will hold accountable those who inflicted it on the world." What does that mean?

Just posted: Twitter released millions of tweets showing Russia's influence campaign -- and how it supported Trump.

Leaked GOP Obamacare bill kills Medicaid expansion, allows insurance companies to charge older patients 5X more.

The other troops already at the border are literally, in some cases, shoveling manure because they don't have enough to do.

I'm old enough to remember when "read the bill" was a pretty effective political attack. Now they're literally rewriting a trillion dollar Senate tax bill on the floor in the hours before they vote on it?

Imagine you wake up, see a tweet that Wal Mart and Sam's Club are raising your wage by $2 an hour. Then you show up for work and your store is closed and you're unemployed.

The arrest of the Huawei executive is a BIG deal in China and is probably being underplayed in the US news cycle. Equivalent of an Apple or Facebook exec being arrested in China.

Don't believe the CBO? Take the White House estimates. Wait ... they're worse. @pauldemko  with yet another scoop.
