Maggie Haberman The New York Times Company, updated at 6:38 PM Sometimes the self-declared greatest counterpuncher in the world lands a blow on the wrong person. That was the case on Thursday night in Manchester, New Hampshire, during a campaign rally when President Donald Trump publicly ridiculed a man because of his weight; the president thought he was a protester. Instead, the man turned out to be a supporter of the president’s who was trying to help remove the actual protesters. The episode took place midway through the rally, as Trump’s 90-minute speech was interrupted and the president paused to wait for the disruption to end. He looked up to the seats where it was taking place, and to a man wearing a Trump 2020 campaign shirt, and said, “That guy’s got a serious weight problem! Go home. Start exercising.” Trump then turned back to his speech and said his campaign was about “love.” The president has come to be known for elementary … [Read more...] about After Trump body shames him, supporter says ‘I love the guy’
As the health care battle turns increasingly bitter, what was so recently a political winner for Democrats, akin to kissing babies, is transforming into a minefield that could expose breaks in the party on a fundamental issue and, some worry, threaten the eventual nominee’s success against President Trump. “Due to sheer incompetence, the president has handed Democrats a political gift,” said Jim Manley, a veteran Democratic consultant who worked to pass the Obama-era Affordable Care Act as a top Senate staffer. “I just don’t want to see us squander it by getting sidetracked on debates that aren’t going to lead to real legislation.” The contours of the argument reflect the party’s leftward drift a decade after Democrats were unable to muster support to include the public option — the ability of people to choose to pay for a government-run health care plan — into the Affordable Care Act. But the debate also has Democrats … [Read more...] about Health care unified Democrats in 2018. Now it’s dividing them
Anna Edney and John Tozzi Bloomberg Published 4:41 PM EDT May 1, 2019 Creating a single-payer health-care system in the U.S. would be a “major undertaking that would involve substantial changes” to medical coverage, according to a report issued by the Congressional Budget Office. The nonpartisan agency that evaluates the potential budgetary, economic and other effects of legislative proposals didn’t assess any specific bill. Congressional Democrats have put forward a number of measures that would expand or overhaul government health programs. “The transition toward a single-payer system could be complicated, challenging and potentially disruptive,” the CBO said on Wednesday. That disruption could be minimized by phasing in changes gradually, according to the report. Adopting universal health coverage “would significantly increase government spending and require substantial additional government resources,” the office said. Total medical … [Read more...] about Single-payer health care a ‘major undertaking,’ CBO says
Cambridge native Mindy Kaling is facing some blowback for supporting embattled comedian Aziz Ansari. Over the weekend, the actress posted a photo of a ticket to Ansari’s Friday stand-up show at The Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, captioning the photo, “Funniest s*** ever. ❤️” The controversy surrounding Ansari stems from a January 2018 article posted on Babe.net, in which a Brooklyn photographer whose name was not revealed said Ansari sexually assaulted her in his apartment after a date. Ansari released a statement shortly afterward saying he believed their sexual interactions were “completely consensual,” but that he “took her words to heart.” The allegation drew mixed reactions at the time, with some people questioning whether it muddled the weight of the #MeToo movement. After staying out of the public eye for most of 2018, Ansari eventually returned to the stand-up scene, including performing several shows in New England. … [Read more...] about Mindy Kaling was criticized for supporting Aziz Ansari.
