Trump: Biden Is Insulting Men Everywhere by Picking Woman as Running Mate
Reuters / Kevin LamarqueIf you're looking for a quintessential example of fragile masculinity, look no further. President Donald Trump suggested Tuesday morning that, in pledging to pick a woman as his running mate, Joe Biden has offended men everywhere.

Trump made his comments in a simpering interview with Fox Sports personality and OutKick founder Clay Travis. Travis' fearsome questioning covered why the president thinks the media is so mean to him, what sports he likes to watch on television, and if he thought Biden had made a mistake doing something so outlandish as to choose a woman as his as-yet-unannounced vice-presidential pick.

Asked by Travis who he would pick if he was in Biden's position, the president replied: "I would be inclined to a different route to the way he's done. First of all he roped himself into a, you know, certain group of people." For those unable to crack the president's mysterious code, Travis explained: "He said he had to pick a woman."

The MAGA President Remade America as a Shithole Country
Alex Wong/Getty ImagesIf COVID-19 is a war against the "China Virus," as Trump insists, America lost miserably. 

The nation is quarantined, fearful of a virus raging uncontrollably because the president surrendered. The 160,000 lost souls so far have already surpassed American deaths in every overseas war save World War II.  

This is, as Nancy Pelosi has said, the "Trump Virus" because this administration actually facilitated its spread. Authoritarian tweets aren't the only third-world reality of his presidency; a deliberate anti-science policy begat a festering illiteracy and evisceration of our public health. We are now the shithole country in the toilet—not the shining city on the hill—thanks to the president's disinterest in protecting Americans. Our passports are a red flag to the world because of the failure to mitigate the infection rate here.

Donald Trump Actually Did Us All One Big Favor
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Photo by Jim Watson/GettyKurt Andersen has been tooling on Donald Trump for decades—the Spy magazine co-founder once even tricked the Donald into cashing a check for 17 cents. But, Andersen tells Molly Jong-Fast and Rick Wilson, Trump did us all a favor.

We don't want to give it away, but let's just say it exposed how the super-rich profit from our current system. "His final ad [of the 2016 campaign] was all ‘Wall Street has taken all of your wealth and ruined the working class. And we must defeat these people of whom my opponent is a puppet,'" Anderson recounts on the latest episode of The New Abnormal.

"Well, yeah, you had a point," he adds. "But you didn't actually govern at all on that basis. So maybe, maybe he's sort of put that critique of the system on the table"—especially for Republicans who couldn't take in that kind of message from someone left-of-center.

Beirut Government Warned Over Explosives in Port Two Weeks Before Deadly Blast: Report
Hannah McKay/ReutersA letter from Lebanese security officials warning that the 2,750 metric tons of ammonium nitrate dangerously stored in the port of Beirut could destroy the city was sent to both the prime minister and the president in late July, according to Reuters.

The new information underscores the level of incompetence over the handling of the infamous port that led to a catastrophic blast that killed more than 200 people, injured 6,000 and destroyed 6,000 buildings, leaving more than a quarter of a million people homeless.

According to documents seen by Reuters, an investigation into what led to the blast currently underway by the General Directorate of State Security includes a private letter from officials about the explosives, which was sent on July 20 to President Michel Aoun and Prime Minister Hassan Diab.
