–> A midday take on what’s happening in politics and how to have a sense of humor about it.*
*Ha. Haha. Hahah. Sniff. Haha. Sniff. Ha–breaks down crying hysterically.
The Hill's 12:30 Report: Tides quickly turn on Cuomo | Cuomo addresses allegations with video of him hugging, kissing others | Refuses to resign | How the New York impeachment process works | Bipartisan infrastructure bill slowed with 250+ amendments | 'Delta-plus' variant | Florida's crisis with COVID | National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day deals
In the wake of a damning report showing that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Andrew Cuomo Letitia James holding private talks on running for New York governor: report Governors brace for 2022 after year in pandemic spotlight Tucker Carlson says he lies when ‘I’m really cornered or something’ MORE (D) sexually harassed 11 women, he released a video addressing the allegations.
Yes, but : The video shows him hugging and kissing lots of people.
Watch the video:
Via The New York Times's Katie Glueck , "Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, whose meticulously managed public appearances during the pandemic turned him into one of his party's most celebrated national figures, is confronting an existential threat to his political career following a searing report released Tuesday that said he had sexually harassed 11 women and violated federal and state law." https://nyti.ms/3jmYdUr
How quickly everything changed : "Over the span of just a few hours, an already-diminished governor lost the support of a cascade of allies and state and national party leaders who had been withholding judgment, throwing his ability to remain in office — much less win a fourth term — into doubt."
Will Cuomo resign? : He has refused to resign.

AT&T is making a $2 billion, 3-year commitment to help connect communities to their American Dream
Susana Chávez became valedictorian of International High School at Langley Park while juggling numerous jobs throughout school. But what kept her powering through it all was her American Dream. With the help of accessible and affordable broadband, she was able to focus on her studies, get assistance from teachers and stay in touch with her mother back home. And thanks to Access from AT&T, we can connect low-income households like Susana's, and more communities in areas we serve with their American Dream. Find out how.
LATEST WITH THE EVICTION MORATORIUM What we call 'putting a Band-Aid on it':
Via CNN's Kaitlan Collins, Phil Mattingly, Kevin Liptak, John Harwood and Maggie Fox , "The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday issued a fresh stop on certain evictions Tuesday, saying that evicting people could be detrimental to public health and would interfere with efforts to slow the pandemic." https://cnn.it/3jojflG
Details of the announcement : "The new ban applies to areas of the country with high or substantial transmission of Covid-19 and will last until October 3, according to the announcement."
Timing : "The new moratorium comes after President Joe Biden and his administration allowed a previous freeze to expire, setting off fury among members of his own party."
What to know about the extended mortarium : https://cnn.it/3jojflG
'LAST MINUTE EVICTION BAN EXTENSION FUELS CONFUSION AND IS TOO LATE FOR SOME':
Via The Washington Post's Hamza Shaban, Abha Bhattarai and Marissa J. Lang : https://wapo.st/3xuz8Mw
Via The Hill's Alexander Bolton , "Senate action on a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill has slowed to a crawl as lawmakers haggle over more than 250 proposed amendments to the legislation." https://bit.ly/3fveAgA
What to expect with the amendments : "In several instances, senators are holding their colleagues' amendments hostage by objecting to voting on them unless their own priorities are also guaranteed a vote. But with nearly 300 amendments filed, not everyone is going to get their proposed changes to the legislation on the Senate floor, fueling frustrations among senators on both sides of the aisle."
Timing this week : "Senators say they expect the bipartisan package to come up for a final series of votes as soon as this weekend. But the timing will depend on whether Republican senators, in particular, feel they've been given enough chance to make changes to the legislation."
Watch : https://bit.ly/3in6sAF
Lol, this is spot on : The New Republic's Grace Segers tweeted, "Schumer swooping in like someone taking your parking spot after you’ve been signaling for a while." https://bit.ly/2TRFeIO
LATEST WITH THE CORONAVIRUS Oh, come on. Go home, Delta and your new 'Delta-plus' cousin:
Via The Washington Post's Jennifer Hassan and Lateshia Beachum , "South Korea's Disease Control and Prevention Agency said Tuesday that it had recorded at least two cases of the new coronavirus delta-plus variant, which some experts believe to be more transmissible than the original delta variant that was first detected in India." https://wapo.st/3AaAzS0
What we know about the delta-plus variant : https://wapo.st/3AaAzS0
WHEN WILL DELTA PEAK?:
It's hard to predict, but it could peak this month. https://bit.ly/3jjudZD
Via The Hill's Max Greenwood and Julia Manchester , "Florida's newfound status as the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S. has thrust the state into crisis mode as officials battle over the best way to curb the outbreak." https://bit.ly/3yoIeM3
The extent of the crisis : "On Tuesday, Florida hit 11,515 hospitalizations due to COVID-19, marking the third straight day that the state has broken its record. About 2,400 patients are now in intensive care. At the same time, there's concern among experts that the Sunshine State is still weeks away from hitting its peak. The state now accounts for roughly 1 in 5 new cases nationally."
TIDBIT — YIKES:
"[More than] 1 out of every 1,900 people in Florida is in a hospital bed right now with COVID." (Via Bloomberg's Steven Dennis ) https://bit.ly/37hEIaj
