MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski Calls Out Diehard Trump Supporters: ‘How Stupid Can You Be?'
MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski went off Friday morning, urging supporters of President Donald Trump not to be so "stupid" and Republican lawmakers to "wake up" about the ways she says the president is dangerously impacting the country."There's clear disdain that I have for this president, but look at the facts," the "Morning Joe" co-host said. "Look at how he's worn us down, from his paid-off porn star to Russia lies to racism in Charlottesville, racism across the board, children in cages… I mean lie after lie after lie. Conspiracy theories. Our country right now is really at a breaking point. If we don't find a way to hold this president accountable with his attempts to undermine the Post Office and also his apparent negligence — perhaps purposeful —  on saving the American people's lives in this pandemic. You are pathetic at this point."She went on, accusing Trump of "choosing not to" keep people alive amid the coronavirus pandemic and accusing his fellow GOP lawmakers of letting it happen.Also Read: 'Morning Joe' Hosts Knock Trump for Contributing 'Not Once, but Twice' to Previous Kamala Harris Campaigns (Video)Brzezinski's anti-Trump remarks lasted the duration of a three-hour show and caught attention online Friday."How stupid can you be, at this point, if you follow this president?" she demanded at one point.

Mississippi Is What a School Reopening Shitshow Looks Like
On Monday morning, hundreds of sixth, seventh, and eighth graders filed through the doors at Grenada Middle School in north Mississippi. Looking out of her classroom, math teacher Suzanne Alexander saw kids huddled together, giddy at being with friends for the first time in months. As she walked the halls, students she hadn't seen since they moved to remote learning in March surprised her with big, enthusiastic hugs. When the bell rang at the end of the day, those same students hung out around classroom doors, waiting on friends—perhaps too intimidated, in normal middle school fashion, to be seen walking out alone. It was, she said, a very typical first day of school. And that was the problem."Right now is not normal by any stretch of the imagination," Alexander told The Daily Beast. "And they don't even think about it. But I'm thinking, ‘Oh my goodness, there are 50 kids huddled up around me.'" "We keep preaching, ‘Don't gather in groups.' Well, when you've got kids, they're going to gather in groups. That's just the nature of kids."Morgues Are Overflowing in Mississippi and Coroners Are TerrifiedLast week, as Mississippi led the country in per capita deaths from the coronavirus, schools around the state began holding in-person classes in defiance of the state's own medical experts, who had pushed for a delayed start to the year.

Afghan government releases 80 of final 400 Taliban prisoners
The Afghan government has begun releasing the last Taliban prisoners from a final batch of 400 who the militants want freed before they agree to start peace negotiations, a security agency spokesman said on Friday. The government agreed on Sunday to release the 400 "hard-core" prisoners after consulting a grand assembly of elders and other community leaders, known as a Loya Jirga. "The government ... yesterday released 80 Taliban convicts out of the 400 that the Consultative Loya Jirga sanctioned for release to speed up efforts for direct talks and a lasting, nationwide ceasefire," said Javid Faisal, spokesman for the National Security Council.

Postal workers are sounding the alarm as mail sorting machines are removed from processing facilities
It's not just business as usual at the United States Postal Service.While President Trump is publicly saying he plans to block funding for the USPS so that Democrats can't achieve their goal of expanding mail-in voting across all states ahead of the November election, the Postal Service is also facing some internal changes.Vice News' Motherboard reported Thursday that USPS is quietly removing mail sorting machines — the very machines that are responsible for sorting ballots. There's no official explanation for the changes, and it's unclear why the machines would be removed rather than simply not used when not needed. The removals and planned removals are reportedly affecting several processing facilities across the U.S."It'll force the mail to be worked by human hands in sorting. Guarantees to STOP productivity," a Post Office source told The Washington Post's Jacqueline Alemany. "On top of cutting the overtime needed to run the machines, can you imagine the [overtime] needed to do this [the] old hard way?"Postal workers say equipment is often moved around or replaced, but not usually at such a rate, and not in such a way that would affect workers' ability to quickly process large quantities of mail. Local union officials have no idea what's going on. "I'm not sure you're going to find an answer for why," one union president told Vice, "because we haven't figured that out either."A USPS spokesperson said the move is routine. "Package volum

Biden says Trump's USPS funding opposition shows he 'doesn't want an election'
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is slamming recent comments from President Trump he says prove his opponent doesn't "want an election." Biden spoke Thursday after Trump in a Fox Business interview said he is against the funding for the United States Postal Service that Democrats are pushing for in a stimulus bill, with the president suggesting this is specifically because he wants to prevent universal mail-in voting during the COVID-19 pandemic. "Pure Trump," Biden said of these comments. "He doesn't want an election."The Biden campaign in a statement on Thursday also accused the president of "sabotaging a basic service that hundreds of millions of people rely upon, cutting a critical lifeline for rural economies and for delivery of medicines, because he wants to deprive Americans of their fundamental right to vote safely."In the Fox Business interview, Trump, who has asserted without evidence that increased mail-in voting during the coronavirus crisis would result in widespread voter fraud, had said that without the $25 billion for the USPS that Democrats want and that he is blocking, "you can't have universal mail-in voting, because they're not equipped to have it." "Pure Trump," Joe Biden says when asked about Pres. Trump's comments on U.S. Postal Service.
