VIDEO OF THE DAY: Trump’s own cabinet member turns on him on air

The disgraced ex-president’s one-time chief enabler and former firewall at the Justice Department turned on the serial grifter in a jarring interview on Sunday and flatly said it would be a “tragedy” if Trump became the GOP nominee in 2024 — but because Republicans would lose, of course, not because he has any real disagreement with the man whose fetid, greasy water he carried for years.

Ron DeSantis boasts voters “will walk barefoot over broken glass” for him
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis arrogantly boasted to a group of Republicans that people are willing to “walk barefoot over broken glass” to vote for him because he’s such a superlative leader. It’s not quite “I could shoot a man in the middle of Times Square and no one would care” territory, but it’s getting there…

Hidden audits reveal hundreds of millions in overcharges by Medicare Advantage private insurers
Newly released federal audits reveal widespread overcharges and other errors in payments to Medicare Advantage, a fast-growing alternative to original Medicare which is run primarily by — surprise! — major insurance companies.

Hospitals are full of kids sick with RSV — and anti-vaxxers think it’s a hoax

Respiratory syncytial virus, more commonly known as RSV, can make breathing difficult for young children and elderly adults and typically kills a few hundred children and as many as 10,000 seniors every year.

Senior Democratic lawmakers demand answers from Chief Justice Roberts on alleged Supreme Court leak
Democrats in Congress are demanding that Chief Justice John Roberts detail what, if anything, the Supreme Court has done to respond to bombshell allegations that Samuel Alito leaked a ruling to help conservative allies coordinate a PR campaign and claims about a concerted effort by religious conservatives to woo the justices through meals and social engagements.

European teams abandon plan to wear “One Love” armbands at World Cup after FIFA threatens on-field punishment to appease Qatar
The captains of seven European nations will no longer wear armbands supporting an anti-discrimination campaign aimed at host nation Qatar after FIFA said the players would be punished with yellow cards on the field.

Rep. Adam Schiff contends Republican House majority will “be chaos” with “very weak leader” Kevin McCarthy
Schiff, the current chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said he expects McCarthy will follow the lead of hardline lawmakers in a bid to maintain his fledgling grip on the speakership, noting, “I suspect [McCarthey] will do whatever Marjorie Taylor Greene wants him to do. He’s a very weak leader of this conference, meaning that he will adhere to the wishes of the lowest common denominator, and if that lowest common denominator wants to remove people from committees, that’s what they’ll do.”

GOP’s lackluster fundraising spurs post-election infighting
As both parties sift through the results of Democrats’ stronger-than-expected showing in the midterm elections, Republicans are engaged in a round of bitter finger-pointing over whom to blame for the party’s deflating collapse.
