Democrats Fume That Neera Tanden Mess Dragged Down Equality Act
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyPresident Joe Biden's agenda for his first 100 days can't be criticized for a lack of ambition. But as key components of his policy priorities, from raising the national minimum wage to wage discrimination against workers with disabilities, have fallen victim to the filibuster, stakeholders in the Equality Act—one of his key legislative goals—grew increasingly frustrated with the White House's white-knuckle commitment to an item that never appeared on his long list of commitments to voters during the campaign: confirming Neera Tanden as director of the Office of Management and Budget.

For reasons both high-minded and mundane, Tanden's nomination to the position hung by little more than a single thread, pinched in the ambivalent fingers of Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) after nearly every moderate Republican in the Senate, as well as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), said that they wouldn't vote to confirm her. On Tuesday, Tanden announced that she was withdrawing her nomination, despite White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain's promise that the administration was "fighting our guts out" for Tanden's confirmation, no matter the vanishingly long odds.

Outside the administration, however, advocates for more popular priorities—and, arguably, more im

My Cuomo ‘Crush' Turned Out to Be Stockholm Syndrome
Carlow Allegri/ReutersI've been wrong before. In my 42 years I've had the privilege of being wrong many times and since I've been sober since I was 19, I can't now blame booze. Besides being wrong many times, I've also crushed it with some scorchingly bad hot takes, like my piece about how Biden should drop out a few days before he won South Carolina. Spoiler alert: He's president now so I didn't exactly nail that one. But "Why We Are Crushing on Andrew Cuomo Right Now" may have been my worst take.

A caveat: I did not write the headline. I do not have the power to approve or write my headlines. But since three much younger women, two of them former staffers, accused New York's governor of harassment over the last week that headline is what people online have used to dunk on me. As Aristotle said, "Live by the tweet, die by the tweet—or figure out how to auto-delete your tweets."

And headline aside, the piece was extremely bad and not at all good. In my defense, I did note his partnership with the very sketchy IDC, "a group of supposed Democrats who helped the Republicans control the New York State Senate for many years." I called him joyless, but I also noted "what a difference a pandemic makes" as I praised my "competent governor/imaginary boyfriend."

Trevor Noah Disgusted by Andrew Cuomo's Creepy Kiss Photo
Comedy CentralIn mid-February, The Daily Show's Trevor Noah was one of the first late-night hosts to really give it to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo over his cover-up of COVID nursing home deaths, comparing his aversion to reality to former President Donald Trump's. And now, Noah is going hard in the paint on Cuomo's series of sexual-harassment allegations. Thus far, two former aides to Cuomo have accused him of making lewd comments and unwanted advances (allegations Cuomo has denied), and this week, a third woman came forward to The New York Times accusing him of aggressively pawing her and trying to kiss her at a wedding.

After thanking Cuomo for his wedding toast about her friends, Anna Ruch, now 33, told the Times that Cuomo put his hand on her bare lower back. "When she removed his hand with her own, Ms. Ruch recalled, the governor remarked that she seemed ‘aggressive' and placed his hands on her cheeks. He asked if he could kiss her, loudly enough for a friend standing nearby to hear. Ms. Ruch was bewildered by the entreaty, she said, and pulled away as the governor drew closer," reported the Times. Ruch says she was "confused and shocked and embarrassed" by the unwanted advance.

"Jesus, man! What are you doing? I mean, on the one hand, asking women for consent before you kiss them is what you're supposed to do, but the other part of consent is waiting for them to answer! You don't just grab them on the face like a

Fox NewsFox News contributor Tomi Lahren brought right-wing media's obsession with so-called "cancel culture" to its inevitable full circle on Tuesday, calling for conservatives to "start canceling" the companies that engage in "cancel culture."

After devoting multi-day outrage cycles over Mr. Potato Head and The Muppets being the latest victims of a supposed cancel-culture mob—neither of them, of course, were actually canceled—Fox News spent much of Tuesday complaining about the news that six Dr. Seuss books will no longer be published due to racist and insensitive imagery.

"These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong," Dr. Seuss Enterprises said in a statement on Tuesday, which coincided with the late author's birthday. "Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises' catalog represents and supports all communities and families."
