.@cenkuygur to @ninaturner: "Are you thinking about 2024?" Nina Turner: "I am." #tytlive


Trump is killing the military's legendary 159-year-old newspaper without explanation. You should read every word of this story to understand how insane that is -->

Quoted @EliStokols

In his 2016 RNC speech, Trump spoke of "violence in our streets" but promised: "Beginning on January 20th 2017, safety will be restored." A near identical pitch for reelection tonight — now as the incumbent leading a nation in crisis — is a tougher sell.

Yep. Trump gave his acceptance speech days after protests around the fatal shooting of Philando Castile. A premise at the top of Trump’s 2016 RNC speech was that this unrest would end when he won.

Avoid the vague "officer-involved" for shootings and other cases involving police. Be specific about what happened. If police use the term, ask: How was the officer or officers involved? Who did the shooting? If the information is not available or not provided, spell that out.

NEWS: Kellyanne Conway is leaving the White House at the end of this month. She told the president tonight, in the Oval Office. My story —>

Excited to announce that after a year at the LA Times, I've been promoted to D.C. Bureau Chief. So grateful for @DavidLauter, Shani and the entire masthead for this amazing opportunity.

I’m a Nagourney Bro, but I feel that this piece is too hand-wavy about reality. If Dukakis went to a state school and passed a major crime bill, he wouldn’t have been Dukakis.

President Trump suggests that Kamala Harris, an American citizen who is 55 years old and was born in Oakland, Calif., might not be eligible to serve as Vice President.

Mail-in ballots go brrr

If it’s a Watergate anniversary week, it’s time to listen to Stevie Wonder’s Watergate song


SCOOP: Joe Biden is no longer traveling to Milwaukee to accept the Democratic nomination. His plans to travel to the convention have been scrapped because of coronavirus concerns.

.@PressSec just said Democrats have no plan, then noted that their $3 trillion plan has gone up to a $3.4 trillion plan.

It is completely reasonable to base your opinion of somebody solely on how they interact with waiters

Biden on the timeline for selecting his running mate: "I’m going to have a choice the first week in August and I promise I’ll let you know when I do."

Our national veepstakes nightmare is in its final 10 days, at most

Delta is clearly trying to set itself apart as the social distancing airline. @NirajC talks to the man in charge of that effort.

I’m so excited to get to work!! “A diverse staff makes our reporting better. We’re better when we have more perspectives and we can cover communities as deeply and widely as possible.”
