Joe Biden may be immersed in debate preparation at Camp David, Maryland, but on Saturday at least, Donald Trump will not be following suit.

Less than a week out from the first debate of the presidential election, in Atlanta on Thursday, the former president, convicted felon, penalized fraudster and adjudicated rapist will stage a campaign event in Philadelphia.

Democrats say they know what Trump is up to.

I’m a carry-on-only girl. I’ve traveled through four different climates on a 15-day trip and still did not check a bag; it saves time at the airport, and it’s safer (my stuff stays with me the whole time, so there’s no risk of the airline losing it). If you’ve ever suffered the awfulness of lost luggage, you know that traveling without...

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images

Bob Bauer has been counsel to presidents and campaigns. His clients included Barack Obama and Joe Biden. In 2020, he played Donald Trump in debate prep. He was “as personally insulting and unhinged as Trump can be,” he writes in The Unraveling, his latest book.

Think politics 24-7-365, with stellar Democratic connections.

Bauer is married to Anita Dunn, a veteran of the Obama White House and a presence in the Biden West Wing.

Martin Short’s Jiminy Glick Roasts Bill Maher to His Face

Real Time with Bill Maher

For any fans of Martin Short’s long-running character Jiminy Glick, you’re in luck: the problematic interviewer has come out of retirement to talk to Bill Maher.

Thankfully, Glick’s social skills have not improved over time. He spent most of the conversation asking Maher about other celebrities, interrupting Maher’s answers, or talking about himself. Between all that, Glick still managed to throw in some fun digs at Maher’s expense.

“I love this book,”...

Opinion: These Fractures in the Supreme Court Threaten to Sink It

The Supreme Court’s once shiny surface is fracturing before our eyes. It may be hard to identify where or when the damage first began, but the source is obvious. It’s the justices themselves.

At the most recent Supreme Court Historical Society Dinner, both Justice Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts were surreptitiously recorded by Lauren Windsor, a documentary filmmaker who baited both justices by making very...

Opinion: This Was the Week When the RFK Jr. Fantasy Went Bust

Photo Illustration by Erin O’Flynn/The Daily Beast/Getty Images

As we hurtle toward the first 2024 presidential debate on Thursday, it’s worth asking: What the hell happened to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.?

Back in April, an Emerson College poll had him at 21 percent, and a Fox News poll from around the same time had him at 19 percent. At that moment, it was easy to believe that he might build on that foundation, surpassing the 19 percent Ross Perot garnered in the 1992 presidential election....

How Putin Uses His Pet Dogs for the Kremlin’s Dirty Tricks

KCNA/Reuters

Russian President Vladimir Putin has a lot to show for his whirlwind trip to Pyongyang this week, including a new mutual defense pact, a gallery of photos with Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, and a pair of dogs personally gifted to him by the North Korean dictator.

Just as Chinese officials have given giant pandas to other countries in “panda diplomacy,” “dog diplomacy” is alive and well in the Koreas—and Kim Jong Un’s gift of two Pungsan dogs—a local breed—might be...

Trump Blames CIA for His Empty Promises on JFK Files

Brendan McDermid/Reuters

Former President Donald Trump claimed on the ‘All In’ podcast this week that the CIA stonewalled him from releasing the JFK assassination files.

But when pressed on the issue, Trump told the podcast hosts, “I actually did do it. I released a lot.” He claimed that the CIA delayed his requests, telling him they needed “more time.”

In 2017, Trump made waves by publicly promising to release “ALL JFK files other than the names and addresses of any mentioned...
