Weekend thread: What's happening?
One of Trump's lawyers calls him "narcissist," as Biden and Democrats keep slamming MAGA. And a mini- dispatch from Spain.
The entire world seems to be consumed in the death of Queen Elizabeth, even though we of course didn’t see anything surprising, as she was in her nineties and as Charles finally takes the thrown at 70.
American newspapers and websites are overwhelmed with coverage, all top of the page, even though the monarchy in the UK has no political power and of course has no impact politically on the United States. It’s of course just the spectacle of it all.
And here in Spain, which also has royal family without power in a parliamentarian democracy, it’s also top of the news.
I get it, but what I don’t like is the way other news is lost. Donald Trump is still engaged in an ongoing coup, as his lawyer from his first impeachment has jumped ship and attacked him. More Democrats are hitting hard, as Joe Biden isn’t letting up on attacking MAGA Republicans.
People around the world are taking notice.I thought I’d give you a little dispatch on what’s happening here in Spain, a view from abroad.
