FROM Jorge Ramos
Jorge Ramos on ‘Hate Rising’ Immigration is one of the topics that will come up at the presidential debate tonight, and it’s been a throughline in both campaigns. Remember last summer when Donald Trump called Mexican immigrants rapists? Jorge Ramos remembers too, and now he’s made a film about the hate and vitriol directed at undocumented immigrants. It’s called Hate Rising, and he was inspired to make the film after he was thrown out of a Trump press conference. He says he’d never experienced such a bold expression of hate in his career as newscaster.
George Saunders: Lincoln in the Bardo (Part I) Lincoln in the Bardo dramatizes a grieving President Lincoln as he visits the grave of his beloved son Willie, who died at age eleven. In the novel, the buried dead believe they're not dead -- "they're sick and refer to their coffins as "sick boxes."
How do Trump supporters feel about the Paris Accord? Globally and around the U.S., there are strong opinions whether or not the Paris Climate Accord is a good idea. The American exit is either a horrifying abdication of American leadership or a forceful and long overdue statement about U.S. sovereignty.
Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
