Trump Joins His Golf Club Guests in Derailing Presser to Bash Journalist Who Asked About Masks
Joshua Roberts/ReutersMembers of President Trump's New Jersey golf club derailed a Friday press conference with him to jeer at a reporter who confronted the president about COVID-19 deaths and noted that the guests themselves weren't wearing masks.

The moment arose after Trump repeated the lie that the new coronavirus pandemic, which he continually referred to as "the China virus," would "disappear" and that it was already on track to do so. COVID-19 cases are actually rising across the country. 

A reporter pushed Trump about his well-documented habit of downplaying the virus: "You said that the pandemic is disappearing, but we lost 6,000 Americans this week, and just in this room, you have dozens of people not following the guidelines in New Jersey ... "

Should Trump Get Involved in Stalled Coronavirus Stimulus Talks? No Way, Republicans Say
Chip SomodevillaA peculiar thing is happening in Washington D.C. right now. 

Congressional Democrats are demanding that President Donald Trump spend trillions of dollars to boost the economy, stabilize states, and shore up schools, just as the November elections are coming into focus. But rather than take the money, Trump has said, no. 

More remarkable, he's barely been involved in the discussions.

Lie, Deny and Hope For a Miracle Isn't Just Trump's Virus Plan—It's Also His Jobs Plan
Scott Olson/Getty ImagesMore than 32 million Americans are currently receiving some form of unemployment benefits and Thursday it was reported that another 1.2 million filed first-time unemployment claims in the past week—marking the 20th straight week that such claims exceeded one million. So what's Donald Trump's jobs plan? 

The same as his "plan" to address the COVID-19 health crisis: Lie, deny and hope things "miraculously" get better.  That approach didn't work with the virus and it's not going to work with our economy. 

Yet on Wednesday there was Trump in his safe space of Fox & Friends showcasing his COVID and economic "plans." First, Trump again spewed lies about the health risks posed by COVID-19 as he irresponsibly told parents that their children are "almost immune" to the virus—a lie so dangerous both Twitter and Facebook removed it. Then Trump shared his plan to help the millions of American out of work: Think about how good the economy used to be.  He offered zero proposals for how to create new jobs. Instead, he

"The World's Most Dangerous Man": Mary Trump on Her Uncle, President Trump, & Why He Must Be Ousted
"In my family, being kind was considered being weak," says Mary Trump, President Trump's niece, a clinical psychologist and author of "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man." We spend the hour with Mary Trump, discussing her book the president doesn't want people to read, in which she describes his upbringing in a dysfunctional family that fostered his greed, cruelty and racist and sexist behaviors — which he is now inflicting on the world. Mary Trump also discusses the president's mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic, his long history of lies and misrepresentations, and the dangers of his reelection. "I believe that this country is on the knife's edge, and I don't want anybody going to cast their vote in November being able to claim that they just don't know who they're voting for," she says.

This COVID-19 Hotspot Is Now Ground Zero for a Major Vaccine Trial
GettyIn late April, Southern weekender destination Savannah, Georgia, was bracing for a post-lockdown "flood of tourists"—and with it, a subsequent surge in coronavirus cases. At that point, the county's percentage of positive test results hovered around 2 percent. By the end of June, as long cooped-up travelers poured into the city from all along the Eastern Seaboard, the city's percentage-positive rate nearly quadrupled, and in an attempt to re-flatten the curve, Savannah's Mayor Van Johnson issued an executive mask mandate. 

"Savannah is experiencing thousands of visitors on our streets, in our establishments and most of them are not wearing face coverings," Johnson wrote in a letter to Georgia's notoriously mask mandate-averse governor Brian Kemp. "Infection numbers have exploded over the last three weeks and there is no indication that this disturbing trend is reversing." Since that point, the trolleys continue to circle, the bridesmaids continue to tour, and the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms in Savannah has only continued to climb. But just a few miles from the heart of the tourist district, in a nondescript medical complex on Eisenhower Drive, Savannahians were volunteering, under the radar, to receive test injections of an experime
