01) Billionaire: The Rich Don’t Care If You Die From Covid, We’re Fine


“Here’s what a pandemic is like if you’re a billionaire.

On the day the coronavirus was declared a pandemic, I called the richest person I know. The world was spiraling into chaos, with 118,319 confirmed cases and 4,292 deaths in at least 100 countries, and I thought someone so well connected might know what was going on.

01) Mitch McConnell Blindsided By Trump Corruption During Press Conference


“Some of Senate Republicans are pushing back on Trump’s demands.

On Monday, the GOP’s coronavirus stimulus proposal was revealed to contain funding to construct a new FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C. — a proposal that could make the Trump Organization a lot of money, but that took Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) completely by surprise.

On CNN’s “OutFront,” reporter Phil Mattingly noted that Senate Republicans are not happy with the sudden inclusion.
