All The President's Men Are Whiny Little Boys
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos GettyWe are a nation on downers, with a president on uppers and a Secretary of State that is, as the kids would say, tripping.

Secretary of State and 56-year-old adult man Mike Pompeo threw a full-fledged tantrum Friday when NPR's Mary Louise Kelly dared ask him tough questions about his role in the Ukraine scandal that led to President Trump's impeachment. Pompeo was emotionally reactive throughout the interview, and afterward, according to Kelly, the Secretary of State led her into another room, where he screamed and swore at her for several minutes, demanded she point out where Ukraine is on an unmarked map (she did) and then threatened that people would "find out about this." Even the most sycophantic Trumpian bootlicker would have a hard time defending this behavior, and yet, the reaction from other reporters who have interacted with Pompeo was: Yes, this all tracks for a very powerful Republican man. This is how he acts.  

In conservative circles, there's a consensus lamentation about the death of the "American man." In their imaginations, men in America used to be like John Wayne characters: tall, stoic cowboy-providers who kept a stiff upper lip as they fended off the emotional chaos of women and flamboyant, gun-twirling bad guys. Real men never cry. Real men don't lose their shit and scream at people.

GOP senators: Dems threw Bidens 'under the bus' in Trump impeachment trial
President Trump's allies say Democrats made a critical mistake by spending so much time on Joe and Hunter Biden in their Senate impeachment trial arguments, and they've given Trump's legal team no choice but give the father and son's dealings in Ukraine a starring role when they launch their defense starting Saturday.

Mike Pompeo Blows Up at NPR Reporter: ‘Do You Think Americans Care About Ukraine?'
RAUL ARBOLEDASecretary of State Mike Pompeo reportedly cursed and shouted at an NPR reporter after she repeatedly confronted him about his handling of the politically charged ouster of former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

According to a transcript of the interview between NPR host Mary Louise Kelly and Pompeo, he repeatedly dodged questions on Ukraine and grew increasingly irate after Kelly asked, "Do you owe Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch an apology?"

"You know, I agreed to come on your show today to talk about Iran," Pompeo said before going on to insist, "I  just don't have anything else to say about that this morning."

The individual had recently visited Wuhan, China, where 17 people have died and hundreds more have fallen sick since last month. Texas A&M University confirmed that one of its students was identified as the possible case there and said the "immediate health risk to the campus community" was low.

Meanwhile, a sick individual representing another potential case in California reportedly arrived at Los Angeles International Airport from Mexico City on an American Airlines flight at about 6:45 p.m. local time on Wednesday. They were taken to the hospital with flu-like symptoms, NBC Los Angeles reported.
