Trump: Killing You Not Just Quickly but Slowly, Too

In what would be a very big story at any time other than pandemic season, the Trump administration today officially rolled back the fuel efficiency and emissions standards on cars that the Obama administration promulgated in 2012. Instead of requiring automakers to increase efficiency by 5 percent a year so that cars could get an average of 54 miles per gallon by 2025, Trump’s minions have decreed that efficiency should increase by just 1.5 percent a year so cars could get 40 miles per gallon in 2026.

Trump’s latest pardons show how quickly he’s normalizing corruption

The notion that arguably the most personally corrupt president in American history has good-faith concerns about corruption has always been absurd. But whatever shred of plausibility it had was dealt a death blow on Tuesday when President Donald Trump pardoned or commuted the sentences of a veritable who’s who of corrupt public figures. Trump commuted the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D), who was convicted of fraud and conspiracy charges related to his efforts to basically sell a US Senate seat.
