“The Crown” has always taken liberties with the story of the royal family. But in dramatizing Charles, Diana, and Margaret Thatcher, it has offended people who covered 1980s Britain, even those who don’t care about the monarchy.

I get that Biden’s foreign policy team looks boring, next to Trump’s wrecking crew. But the diplomacy these Obama retreads pursued (Iran nuclear backchannel, prisoner swap-for-Cuba-opening) was anything but boring, whether you liked it or hated it.

Of note: in the so-called “girls vs. guys” debate over NATO military action in Libya, Tony Blinken favored intervention, joining Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Samantha Power. VP Biden was skeptical, a role he typically played in these debates.

Tony Blinken’s lower profile and hand-in-glove ties to Biden (and NSA Jake Sullivan) suggest there will be less WH micro-managing of State than was true during the Obama years, with either Clinton or Kerry.

Donald Trump is raging and resisting in the White House. But the rest of the world — from Boeing to Boris Johnson — has turned the page to Joe Biden. W/⁦@shearm⁩ ⁦@gelles &⁩ ⁦@SangerNYT

At 11, he jumped off a speeding train bound for Auschwitz. At 89, he threw open his window and played jazz piano for his locked down neighbors. One of them, ⁦@MatinaStevis⁩, heard him and wrote this beautiful story.

Boris Johnson’s ambitious plans on defense spending and climate policy are likely to please an important new person in his life: Joe Biden. A Boris trade deal with the EU would please Biden even more.

Boris Johnson is back to saying he’s “fit as a butcher’s dog” — which does point up a key difference between him and Trump: the other guy talks about people dying, choking or sweating “like a dog.”

When Lukashenko of Belarus declared a phony victory, Mike Pompeo called him a fraud. Now Pompeo’s boss is doing the same thing. Withering ⁦@ATHigginsNYT⁩ on Trump’s tinpot tyrant strategy.

The good news for Boris Johnson: Joe Biden called him early, along with Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron. The less good news: He also called the Irish PM and raised the Good Friday Agreement with both of them.

Populism isn’t going anywhere, even after Trump. But the significance of his defeat is what it shows those who oppose it, from Brazil to Hungary — populists can be thrown out. W/⁦@meddynyt

Few world leaders have felt the fallout of Joe Biden’s victory more quickly than Boris Johnson. It has scrambled his calculations on Brexit trade talks at a crucial moment. W/⁦@_StephenCastle

“America First” is over. But what will Biden replace it with? Look for smart views from ⁦@StevenErlanger⁩ (Europe), ⁦⁦⁦@stevenleemyers⁩ (China), and ⁦⁦@halbfinger⁩ (Israel). And here’s ⁦@SangerNYT⁩ with the big picture.

The only thing missing from ⁦@benyt⁩’s well-deserved shoutout to ⁦@maggieNYT⁩ is her remarkable generosity to her WH colleagues, starting with the guy who prepared to cover the Trump presidency by writing a book about the other candidate.

Updated, with Bibi Netanyahu’s tweeted congrats to Joe Biden, 12 hours later. He spoke of their “long & warm personal relationship.” One highlight was when he approved West Bank settlements right after hosting Biden in Jerusalem.

For a world that held its breath when Americans went to the polls, Joe Biden’s triumph over Trump provoked many emotions, but above all, a profound sigh of relief.

“OK, America, so what the hell happens now?” wrote Marina Hyde of the Guardian. From London to Singapore, that about sums up the world’s reaction to the chaotic US election. W/⁦@damiencave

From London, look forward to talking to @mikiebarb & @carolynryan about what Trump 2.0 or President Biden would mean for America’s role in the world. First-ever live broadcast of The Daily, from 4 to 8 PM, EST. #thedailylive

In a replay of March, a reluctant Boris Johnson seems poised to announce another lockdown, days after France, Germany, and other European countries bit the bullet.

Brexit and Trump will be forever linked in political science textbooks. But as Trump faces potential defeat, Britain has already moved on (except for Nigel Farage, who brought his Brexit nostalgia act to Trump’s Arizona rally).
