INVESTIGATING

The United States’ top health official called Tuesday for a swift follow-up investigation into the coronavirus’s origins amid renewed questions about whether the virus jumped from an animal host into humans in a naturally occurring event or escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.

Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra told an annual ministerial meeting of the World Health Organization that international experts should be given “the independence to fully assess the source of the virus and the early days of the outbreak.” (Washington Post)

WHAT THAT IGNORANT LOUDMOUTH WILL SAY ON YOUR MORNING ZOOM: It’s all politics.

WHAT YOU SHOULD SAY ON YOUR MORNING ZOOM: The level of soul-searching and after-actioning on the part of those who previously denigrated efforts to understand what happened remains insufficient.

CROWING

Former President Donald Trump claimed in an interview Tuesday that “it was obvious to smart people” that the coronavirus emerged from a lab in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

“I had no doubt about it,” Trump told Newsmax host and former adviser Steve Cortes. “I was criticized by the press because China has a lot of people taken care of. They took care of Hunter [Biden]. They took care of Joe. They took care of everybody, didn’t they? And people didn’t want to say China. Usually, they blame it on Russia. It’s always Russia, Russia, Russia, but I said right at the beginning it came out of Wuhan.” (New York Post)

WHAT THAT IGNORANT LOUDMOUTH WILL SAY ON YOUR MORNING ZOOM: Hunter, Hunter, Hunter.

WHAT YOU SHOULD SAY ON YOUR MORNING ZOOM: Donald Trump is not the prism through which this matter should be viewed.

NEGOTIATING

Senate Republicans plan to present the White House with another infrastructure counteroffer Thursday, even as the prospects for a bipartisan deal grow increasingly dim.

“I think we were pretty clear on where we define physical infrastructure and I think the American people are behind us on this,” GOP lead negotiator Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) told reporters Tuesday. “I think we’ve got good momentum, but we’ll see what their reaction is.” (Politico)

WHAT THAT IGNORANT LOUDMOUTH WILL SAY ON YOUR MORNING ZOOM: It’s all just talk – the Democrats have planned to use reconciliation from the beginning.

RIOTING

Portland police on Tuesday declared a riot amid a destructive downtown demonstration held on the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s murder.

About 200 people gathered Tuesday night outside the Multnomah County Justice Center. Some in the crowd lit fireworks and a dumpster fire, tagged the Justice Center with graffiti and broke windows at nearby Portland City Hall.

Some also threw water bottles and fireworks directly at police officers. (Oregonian)

DISTANCING

Republican leaders in Congress sought to distance themselves Tuesday from comments made by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., that compared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's mask mandate in the House of Representatives to the killing of 6 million Jews in the Holocaust by Nazi Germany. 

The controversy was just the latest in a series of incendiary comments from Greene that stretch back to before she was elected last year.

“Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling," House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in a statement. "The Holocaust is the greatest atrocity committed in history. The fact that this needs to be stated today is deeply troubling."

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell also expressed his displeasure with Greene's comparison. “Once again an outrageous and reprehensible comment," he told reporters on Capitol Hill.  (Yahoo)

WHAT THAT IGNORANT LOUDMOUTH WILL SAY ON YOUR MORNING ZOOM: MTG is the new DJT.

WHAT YOU SHOULD SAY ON YOUR MORNING ZOOM: It took the invocation of the Holocaust to get McCarthy and McConnell to do the right thing.
