Hey US media folks, here, I would argue immodestly, is how you interview a Trump supporter on Trump's lies:

You probably wouldn’t recognize Jeffrey Clark out on the street but this high-ranking DoJ lawyer almost became AG & was ready and willing to use his power to subvert the election. You need to know his name and what he did. He doesn’t want you to. From me. thebulwark.com/who-is-jeffre…

Three days ago students at my son's high school reported a threat on social media from a fellow student; yesterday, the student was taken into custody; today, my son said, fully half the students stayed home out of fear (theirs or their parents'). Normal country.

Before you say "more hyperbole," let's remember that is what some people said about @bartongellman @TheAtlantic article in September 2020 about what could go wrong with the election. Then Jan. 6 happened, and the entire campaign surrounding it. Read Gellman's new piece.
My new Atlantic cover piece is a warning. theatlantic.com/magazine/arc…

Reasons for opposing arms sales to Saudi have not changed since 2019. The Kingdom’s destabilizing& malign policies at home and abroad continue, attacks on Yemen continue, civilian casualties continue, w no sensible strategy or prospect for meaningful military or political gains.

If the democratic will of U.S. citizens mattered, the resolution and amendment would pass easily because the American public has made clear that it opposes arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

My argument re why Congress should block pending @POTUS arms to #Saudi - don't be fooled by semantics of “defensive” weapons- sale is a gesture of political support for Saudi royal family, appeasing MBS despite his efforts to punish Americans w oil prices foreignpolicy.com/2021/12/06…

India.
With high unemployment and a record contraction in the economy following two nationwide lockdowns, families across the country lost both their purchasing power and savings and can now scarcely afford three meals a day. Deeply distressing story to report washingtonpost.com/world/202…

United States policy toward Cuba is replete with contradictions, hypocrisy, arrogance and missed opportunities. Instead of clinging to a failed policy that has made things worse for the Cuban people, we should be guided by what is in our national interests.leahy.senate.gov/press/state…

This profile of Jeremy Strong is wild in the sense that it is deathly, deathly straight. Incredible. Just when you think it can’t get more insane, he bankrupts a Yale theatre company for a night with Al Pacino. newyorker.com/magazine/2021/…

I can’t believe this isn’t an SNL spoof of the last two years of my life. Yes @jrpsaki we want tests literally delivered to every house through the mail.
Jen Psaki somewhat mockingly asks reporter at the White House Daily Press Briefing if the US should be sending out rapid #COVID19 tests to every household. In the UK you can order 1 pack (containing 7 tests) everyday. gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rap…

Dammit 🤦🏽‍♂️
Excellent analysis by @IdoIrani about the waning booster effect (for infection) stratified by age group in Israel. The worrying part: the rate of decline is most age groups is similar to the 2nd jab.

Thank you for submitting your audition for the next series of #LineofDuty but we’re looking for a character with at least one redeeming moral principle and a performance that places even just a scintilla of doubt in the audience’s mind that he might not be totally bent

Trump was the first president to require asylum-seekers to stay in Mexico while waiting for a hearing. Candidate Biden blasted him for it. President Biden is expanding the program. "This is an administration that's speaking out of both sides of its mouth," says @JulianCastro.

U.S. is "the only country that has returned to the pre-pandemic growth level of output...Germany, Canada, the UK...are below where their growth was, we're above it." Biden adviser @genebsperling tells me there was nothing "pre-ordained" about the recovery:

Remember MADD? Mothers Against Drunk Driving helped pass laws that held drunk drivers accountable… and helped reduce the tragedies. @shannonrwatts sees a similar reform opportunity with parental liability for school shooters:
