“So let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is.” Michelle Obama is justifiably getting most of the attention after her Dem Convention opening night speech. But the broader message of the evening was the participation of GOP politicians who argued that this moment goes beyond party. “If Biden does manage to win in November, good luck getting Sanders, Kasich, and Klobuchar to agree on very much.

+ “Do you see what’s happening in New Zealand? They beat it, they beat it, it was like front-page news because they wanted to show me something.” Trump calls out New Zealand’s ‘terrible’ Covid surge, on day it records nine new cases.
