We have to hold on for another two or three months in this condition.” Host Chris Cuomo then asked, “But do you think that maybe the science has now lost to the social pressure and the balancing of equities in the regard of, it’s going down. Vaccines are coming up. Only a small fraction die. The cases seem to be getting better now because people are having less viral load from mask wear or whatever other myth they believe. And we’ve had enough. We’re not going back. We’re only going to go forward?” Emanuel responded, “Chris, if we were asking people to hang on for another year, right, next March, next March.

Monday, FNC “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host Tucker Carlson opened his program criticizing President Joe Biden’s so-called “counterterrorism” approach to Middle East foreign policy, which recently included airstrikes on Syria. Carlson noted the phraseology used to describe the act, which still left a lot of unanswered questions. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Just 36 days into a new administration, and already, Joe Biden has fulfilled a major campaign promise. If you didn’t vote for him, it might be hard to admit this, but don’t worry, this is nothing that’s going to improve your life or the life of the United States.

( CBS Detroit ) — A third stimulus check is likely pending. The $1,400 direct payment is a critical part of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion economic relief package, which aims to ease the economic fallout from COVID and set the economy on better footing. It has support from both Democrats and Republicans and looks destined to end up in the American Rescue Plan’s final version. The broader package also includes higher unemployment benefits, an improved child tax credit, and much more.
