“It’s hard to unify when we’re not able to make our argument because of the cancel culture.”Mr. Trump’s defenders said Mr. Biden should call congressional Democrats and tell them to back off. Democrats scoffed at that suggestion, maintaining that unity does not mean that accountability should be sacrificed. “I don’t think it’s very unifying to say, ‘Let’s just forget it and move on.’ That’s not how you unify,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters. “You don’t say to a president, ‘Do whatever you want in the last months of your administration. “That’s why ultimately our plan is based on unity and all of us acting as one nation.”

Phoebe Bridgers, who played two songs with Parks in a London church this past September for BBC Radio, has experienced a similarly timed, and therefore similarly fraught, rise. “It’s depressing but also just for our own sanity, putting music out makes you feel like at least you have some semblance of a job. She felt herself constantly watching the world around her, then struggling to process what she saw. “It was more a question of overthinking — purpose, love, what success meant, what loss meant, what I was going to do with my life,” she said.

A video viewed more than 2.8 million times on Twitter shows President-elect Joe Biden apparently looking “lost” and “confused” while on stage at a Jan. 16 event. Before he and the members of his team left the stage, Biden took an additional moment to give a closing message and said: “I’ve got to say one thing. I’m not supposed to speak again”, most likely referring to the schedule of the conference and the duration of his speech ( youtu.be/KevRVvP2-_M?t=2525 ). The original footage shows that the edited clip has been cropped from a wider frame which makes it appear Biden was alone at the stage ( youtu.be/KevRVvP2-_M?t=2590 ). Full footage shows that while leaving the room, reporters off-screen were asking him questions (see youtu.be/KevRVvP2-_M?t=2587 ).

ET Retail Sales Slump as Economic Recovery Shows Signs of Stalling: Live Updates RIGHT NOW Banks are starting to release their rainy-day reserves, giving their earnings a boost. JPMorgan Chase reported earnings of just over $12 billion, although the increase was attributed mostly to the newly freed funds. Still, the economic recovery that many thought would come once vaccinations began has been postponed, at least until the spring. Those gains have come even as fresh data shows the economic damage being done by the pandemic.

REUTERS/Toby MelvillePrime Minister Boris Johnson expressed concern about the Brazilian variant on Wednesday and Britain is already trying to contain a UK variant behind a surge in cases at the end of last year. The Brazilian variant shares some characteristics with those found in Britain and South Africa, which are believed by scientists to be more transmissible but not to cause more severe disease. Attempts to contain variants of the coronavirus have created new barriers to travel, with many countries - including Brazil in December - already introducing restrictions on travel from Britain to try to contain the UK variant.

He first took over as prime minister in November 2015 and has at times appeared tired amid the relentless COVID-19 crisis. “I’ve still got a lot to do in terms of serving this country, so I’m looking forward to a number of more years of serving Canadians,” he said in an interview aired on Thursday. He has come to rely heavily on Chrystia Freeland, a close ally, who now occupies the positions of both finance minister and deputy prime minister.

“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.

I’m not that worried,” Mei Ohno, a college student, told Reuters at Yokohama Arena. The government last week declared a state of emergency for the capital and three surrounding prefectures. Yokohama city, south of Tokyo, went ahead with celebrations at Pacifico Yokohama North convention hall and Yokohama Arena event hall. Participants wore face masks, had their temperature checks and were asked just to listen to the national anthem, instead of singing it out loud. Japan has seen coronavirus cases total around 289,000, with 4,067 fatalities, according to public broadcaster NHK.

“I’ve lost 50k-plus followers this week,” an indignant Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote on Twitter on Saturday, after the platform banned Trump and purged accounts that promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory. Trump’s social media exile represents, in some ways, a libertarian dream of a wholly privatized public sphere, in which corporations, not government, get to define the bounds of permissible speech. As a non-libertarian, however, I find myself both agreeing with how technology giants have used their power in this case, and disturbed by just how awesome their power is. Trump deserved to be deplatformed. But it’s dangerous to have a handful of callow young tech titans in charge of who has a megaphone and who does not.
