America’s self-obsession has led to a misdiagnosis of the existential crisis for our democracy, repeated dismissals of Trump’s vaudevillian authoritarianism as akin to Palin, not Orbán. ⁦@brianklaas⁩ sees it clearly >> theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…
There’s no one better than ⁦@jonathanvswan⁩, and this morning he goes deep inside the efforts to lay the groundwork not just for specific names for a 2025 administration, but to allow Trump to dismiss civil servants who stood in his way previously. axios.com/2022/07/22/tru…

"I don't want to say the election is over," Trump says in outtakes from his speech on Jan. 7. "I just want to say Congress has certified the results." Ivanka Trump, who is not seen but heard in the background, helps him make revisions in real time.

This text from Trump's campaign spokesman sums it all up: twitter.com/laurenpeikoff/…
A question that sums up the Trump years quite well: twitter.com/hbottemiller/s…
Trump, struggling to film his remarks condemning lawbreaking supporters a day after the Capitol riot: “I don’t want to say ‘the election is over.’ I just want to say Congress has certified the results.” Holy shit, that’s quite a blooper reel.
"Do you think it looks like we're f—ing winning? 'Cause I don't think it does," Sarah Matthews says, as she recalls what she told White House colleagues who feared condemning the violence at the Capitol would be "handing the media a win."

"I can't think of anybody," Trump lawyer Pat Cipollone said, when asked if there was anyone on the White House staff who wanted people to stay in the Capitol on the afternoon of J6. When asked what the president wanted, he demurs & says he can't reveal conversations with Trump.

Upon returning to Washington, @POTUS told us he planned to make a decision on student loan debt forgiveness “by the end of August.” Asked if he had any hope of getting Manchin to agree to any climate provisions he said only: “I haven’t spoken to Senator Manchin.”
I asked President Biden if it would be a good idea for Speaker Pelosi to travel to Taiwan this summer. “I think that the military thinks it’s not a good idea right now. But I don’t know what the status of it is.”

In new CNN/SRSS poll, on House ballot Dems winning 19% of voters who disapprove of Biden-exactly the same result as recent NYT/Siena poll. In '18, Rs won only 8% of Trump disapprovers. That decoupling gives Ds a mid-term path-if it can last. More here. cnn.com/2022/07/12/pol…

As for why Somerset, here's some background on the former coal plant there that's now producing wind power: wpri.com/news/local-new…
WH confirms @POTUS traveling to Somerset, MA tomorrow "to deliver remarks on tackling the climate crisis and seizing the opportunity of a clean energy future to create jobs and lower costs for families." Whether he signs EO declaring national climate emergency still unclear.
Heinrich on Manchin: “not fair to string people along for a year and not come to a conclusion” “Joe has a responsibility to his constituents and his own personal ideas in West Virginia. But he also has a responsibility to the caucus. And those things are just out of balance”

Unless there's a revolt among D's (not impossible) this is the deal. The story today seems to be a collapse among D's in belief Manchin will ever negotiate in good faith on climate.

The whole idea of taxes and climate/energy as framework was Manchin’s. Taxes in particular he repeatedly indicated were a top priority. Now floating temporary ACA fix instead of permanent, his other supposed core demand. D’s likely take as confirming all their worst assumptions. twitter.com/JStein_WaPo/st…
