Poll: Every Possible Democratic Candidate Beats Trump in 2020



Yuri Gripas/Reuters

A new poll by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic polling firm out of North Carolina, found that every potential Democratic candidate in the 2020 presidential election—announced and unannounced—would beat President Trump in a head-to-head contest. Former Vice President Joe Biden, who has not announced a presidential bid, came in the lead out of the Democratic hopefuls, with 53 percent of poll participants choosing him compared to 41 percent for Trump. Trump trails Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders by 12 points and California Senator Kamala Harris by 7 points. Harris officially announced her 2020 campaign on January 21, raising $1.5 million in online contributions in only 24 hours. Rounding out the pack of potential Democratic candidates was former representative Beto O’Rourke (TX), as well as senators Elizabeth Warren (MA), Cory Booker (NJ), and Kirsten Gillibrand (NY).


Democratic firm @ppppolls surveys early 2020 head-to-head contests:

Biden 53%, Trump 41%
Sanders 51%, Trump 41%
Harris 48%, Trump 41%
O’Rourke 47%, Trump 41%
Warren 48%, Trump 42%
Booker 47%, Trump 42%
Gillibrand 47%, Trump 42%

Spy Pictures of Iranian Missiles in Persian Gulf Caused U.S. Panic on Iran: NYT


The sharp escalation in tensions between Iran and the U.S. came after American intelligence snapped photos of small boats equipped with Iranian missiles in the Persian Gulf, according to The New York Times. The spy images are said to have revealed fully assembled missiles, which raised concerns that the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps was preparing to attack American naval vessels in the region. Three sources told the Times that additional intelligence suggested commercial shipping routes and American troops in Iraq were also a target of militants with Iranian ties. The Washington Post reports the Trump administration did not immediately agree on a strategy, reporting that the president “grew angry last week and over the weekend about what he sees as warlike planning that is getting ahead of his own thinking” on the part of National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. “They are getting way out ahead of themselves, and Trump is annoyed,” the Postreported a top official said. “There was a scramble for Bolton and Pompeo and others to get on the same page.” The Post, quoting what it referred to as several U.S. officials, said Trump prefers a “diplomatic approach” to resolving the matter and “wants to speak directly with Iran’s leaders.”




Missouri Senate Passes Bill Banning Abortion After 8 Weeks


Missouri’s GOP-led Senate met early Thursday to pass a bill 24-10 that would ban abortions at eight weeks of gestation. The bill, which still has to pass the state’s Republican-led House, calls for prison terms of as much as 15 years for doctors performing abortions after the eight-week cutoff. The bill allows exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for pregnancies borne of rape or incest. Missouri’s Republican governor, Mike Parson, supports the bill, promising it would make his state “one of the strongest pro-life states in the country.” Alabama on Wednesday enacted America’s most restrictive abortion measure, banning all abortions after six weeks.





Trump Used Twitter Engagement Numbers to Argue for Syria Pullout: Report


Dan Scavino, Donald Trump’s Twitter co-pilot, former golf caddie, and senior adviser for digital strategy at the White House, helped the president try to convince lawmakers that voters liked his surprise plan to pull all U.S. troops out of Syria based on likes and retweets. “Get Dan Scavino in here,” Trump reportedly called out in the middle of a meeting with legislators this year, according to a report published in Politico. “Tell them how popular my policy is,” Trump allegedly ordered Scavino. Though Trump eventually reversed course slightly on the policy—which he announced last December, leading Defense Secretary James Mattis to resign—Scavino has continued to use the president’s social-media engagement to bolster some of his more controversial decisions. Meanwhile, Trump has become more comfortable with sending out tweets himself, rather than dictating them to Scavino. But every tweet—no matter who sent it—reportedly has a consistent “presidential style”: that includes capitalizing the first letter of words like “collusion” and “witch hunt” in every Twitter post.

Therapy Dogs Honored With Photos in Parkland High School Yearbook


The therapy dogs who helped survivors of the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, last year are being honored in the school’s yearbook. Each of the 14 dogs was photographed for the spread, complete with smiles and one bow tie. “Therapy dogs have played a big part in the healing at Marjory Stomeman (sic) Douglas High in Parkland this past year, so it’s fitting each one got a listing in the (yearbook),” wrote Scott Travis, a reporter at the Sun Sentinel who covers Broward County schools. The mass shooting on February 14, 2018, killed 17 people and wounded 17 others. Therapy dogs can be used to help people cope with trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder. Since the shooting, the Parkland community has lost two Stoneman students to suicide. Sydney Aiello, who was a senior at the time of the shooting, died by suicide about a year later, and another student took his life just a day later.


We love that Chief loves his yearbook! Make sure to find him to sign it. ❤️

Nordstrom Pulls Gucci’s $790 ‘Indy Turban’ After Online Backlash


Nordstrom has announced that it’s pulling a $790 Gucci “turban” from its stores after online backlash. “We have decided to stop carrying this product and have removed it from the site. It was never our intent to disrespect this religious and cultural symbol,” Nordstrom wrote in a tweet Wednesday. “We sincerely apologize to anyone who may have been offended by this.” Nordstrom labeled the headwear as an “Indy Full Turban,” describing it as a “gorgeously crafted turban” that is “ready to turn heads while keeping you in comfort as well as trademark style.” The item first sparked complaints after it premiered on the runway last year, but was nevertheless picked up by retailers. The bright blue turban is almost identical to the traditional headwear of Sikhs, a religion that originated in the Punjab region in northern India.


Does anyone wanna explain to me why @gucci thought selling a turban for $790 was a good idea? @Nordstrom

This isn't a "trademark style." This is not some "fashion accessory."

This is just very-off.

Prince Harry Reaches Settlement Over Helicopter Photos That Forced Royal Couple to Move: Report


Prince Harry has settled with Splash News after the photography agency flew a helicopter so close to the royal couple’s home that it forced the pair to move. Harry has reportedly been given “substantial damages” and an apology for the incident. “The helicopter flew over the home at a low altitude allowing Splash to take photographs of and into the living area and dining area of the home and directly into the bedroom,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. Harry and Meghan were forced to leave their home after the photos were published by media outlets, a royal source familiar with the case told CNN. Splash News chartered a helicopter in January to take images of the couple’s private home in the Cotswolds region of England, putting their safety at risk, according to the palace. “The syndication and publication of the photographs very seriously undermined the safety and security of The Duke and the home to the extent that they are no longer able to live at the property,” the palace said in a statement.





Facebook Stops Israel-Based Operation to Disrupt International Elections


Facebook has banned an Israel-based company that ran a campaign to disrupt elections in countries worldwide. Facebook announced Thursday that it has purged dozens of accounts that were linked to the Archimedes Group, a Tel Aviv-based political consulting and lobbying firm. In total, Facebook cancelled 65 Israeli accounts, 161 pages, dozens of groups, and four Instagram accounts, according to the company’s head of cybersecurity policy, Nathaniel Gleicher. In all, the fake pages racked up 2.8 million followers. Archimedes allegedly boasted of its social media skills and ability to “change reality.” Gleicher said he could not speculate about Archimedes’ motives, which “may be commercial or political or for some other strategic goal,” but said Facebook discovered “coordinated inauthentic behavior,” from accounts posing on behalf of certain political candidates. “Our team assessed that because this group is primarily organized to conduct deceptive behavior, we are removing them from the platform and blocking them from coming back,” Gleicher said.





SAT Examiners to Introduce ‘Adversity Score’ to College Admissions Test


The College Board, which oversees the SAT standardized exam used by most U.S. colleges during the admissions process, plans to introduce an “adversity score” for every student taking the test, The Wall Street Journal reports. The new number will be calculated based on 15 factors ranging from local poverty levels and crime rates to the student’s family background. The students will not be shown this score, but it will be included in the results sent by the SAT examiners to the schools a student applies to. The new scoring system, which was beta-tested with 50 colleges last year, has been criticized by some groups who believe it will only widen the race and class divide in college admissions. Others believe it will help level the playing field among applicants. “There are a number of amazing students who may have scored less [on the SAT] but have accomplished more,” David Coleman, chief executive of the College Board told the Journal. “We can’t sit on our hands and ignore the disparities of wealth reflected in the SAT.”




Rolling Stones Announce Rescheduled U.S. Dates After Mick Jagger’s Health Scare


The Rolling Stones announced new concert dates for their North American tour, just a day after Mick Jagger tweeted a video of himself rocking the dance floor weeks after heart-valve surgery. The band was forced to cancel its No Filter stadium tour—originally set to begin in April—after Jagger, 75, was told he needed the operation. The new tour will kick off with two concerts in Chicago June 21 and 25 and will end on Aug. 31 in Miami with a new concert added in New Orleans. The group promised to play classic hits like “Sympathy for the Devil” and “Paint It Black” on their official website. “We are delighted to announce the new U.S. and Canada tour dates today! All of the cities from the previously postponed shows are locked in, starting at Soldier Field in Chicago on June 21st and including a brand new date in New Orleans!”
