Biden says if he was president he would've pushed for U.S. scientists to be allowed into China to investigate the source of the coronavirus in China & claimed Trump Admin didn't push for this. False. The U.S. pushed to be allowed to investigate on the ground & China blocked us.
Biden again admits that (despite what he's sometimes said) a national mask mandate cannot be done. Biden says he'd get all 50 governors in a room & ask them to mandate masks in states, & if governors say no he will go to mayors & councilmen to ask them to institute mask mandates.
Biden is using notes to answer a question on taxes.
Biden dodged again on court packing but seemed way more open to it than normal. Biden says "I'm not a fan" of packing but "I'm open to considering what happens from that time on" if ACB is confirmed before the election. Biden says he'll give his position before the election(?).
Biden said bounties were put on American heads in Afghanistan by the Russians (Russia-Taliban bounty story remains unconfirmed per top U.S. generals). Biden said more U.S. troops are in Afghanistan now than when he left office. Wrong. It was ~8400 end of 2016 & is under 5000 now.

Trump says "I denounce white supremacy." Guthrie says QAnon is "this theory that Democrats are a Satanic pedophile ring" & that Trump is "the savior of that." Trump says "I know nothing about QAnon" & "I do know they are very much against pedophilia" & "they fight it very hard."
Trump defends retweeting an insane & false conspiracy theory about the Osama bin Laden raid. Trump says "that was a retweet" and "I'll put it out there and people can decide for themselves" and "I don't take a position."
Trump appealed directly to Nancy Pelosi to work out a coronavirus relief deal.

Getting wild on this Tuesday night. Just drank my fifth cup of coffee and am rewatching ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING.
Elisabeth Shue is bae.
As someone who used to take the Greyhound an inordinate amount, the scenes at the downtown Chicago bus station speak to me on a deep level.

"I also want to acknowledge you, my fellow Americans. The president has nominated me to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court & that institution belongs to all of us. If confirmed I wouldn't assume that role...for my own sake. I'd assume this role to serve you."…
ACB: "I fully understand that this is a momentous decision for a president, and if the Senate does the honor of confirming me, I pledge to discharge the responsibilities of this job to the very best of my ability. I love the United States & I love the United States Constitution."
ACB: "Should I be confirmed, I will be mindful of who came before me. The flag of the United States is still flying at half-staff in memory of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, to mark the end of a great American life..."
