John Legend’s feud with Melania Trump
There was quite a bit of buzz about Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s feud on Tuesday. Trump targeted Teigen with a tweet, while John Legend called on the first lady to step in.
Several late-night hosts poked fun at the situation, including Jon Stewart. He referred to the two as “Bring the Funny couple.” He also claimed that he’s been a fan of the rapper’s work for years. But he wasn’t impressed by the latest Twitter feud between the singer and the president.
John Legend, who is married to Teigen, responded to Trump’s criticisms, calling him a “canker sore”. He also pointed out that he had asked Melania to do a more significant thing, such as giving him more credit.
He also pointed to the “Justice For All” documentary on mass incarceration, which featured a number of celebrities, including Legend. It was shown at a New York City prison, and it featured the release of the first inmate under the First Step Act.
False claims about hydroxychloroquine as a cure for COVID-19
If you’ve watched the news lately, you might have noticed a lot of news articles, social media posts and videos on false claims about hydroxychloroquine as a cure for COVID-19. As COVID-19 has swept across the world, scientists have been testing drugs used for other diseases in COVID-19 patients.
The story of hydroxychloroquine illustrates the risks of sloppiness in science. It also shows the need for careful reporting on studies.
There were two major controversies surrounding the drug. First, a study in the U.K. showed no benefit from hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19. Second, a study conducted in China showed that the drug damaged the liver.
The latter claim was disputed by Elisabeth Bik, a microbiologist at the University of California San Francisco, who questioned the study’s methods and concluded that it was not randomised.
The story of hydroxychloroquine also highlights the dangers of the politicisation of science. In particular, it’s clear that a large number of conservative newspaper columnists and political figures pushed for the approval of a new drug that was already in the research stage.
Letitia James’ civil suit
In an effort to permanently bar family members of former president Donald Trump from running or working in New York, Attorney General Letitia James filed a civil suit against Trump’s family Thursday. The complaint alleges that the Trumps have made false financial disclosures and misrepresented their assets for years. It lists at least 200 instances of financial fraud or misleading asset valuations. The lawsuit also seeks a $250 million penalty and a five-year ban on all of the Trump family members from working for companies based in New York.
The suit is the result of a three-year investigation by the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James. The office reportedly reviewed millions of documents to determine if there was any evidence of wrongdoing. It also investigated alleged misstatements of real estate assets to receive financial benefits.
The lawsuit alleges that Trump’s operation manipulated the value of assets in order to get loans at favorable terms, to make better insurance payments, and to avoid paying taxes. It also alleges that senior executives of the firm received untaxed perks.
