NATIONWIDE FEARS AS DARK WINTER NEARS Preslie Paur breaks down in tears when she thinks of her state’s refusal to mandate face masks. She can’t work at her special education job in Salt Lake City due to an autoimmune disease. Her husband, also a special ed teacher, recently quit because his school district would not allow him to work remotely to protect her and their 5-year-old son, who has asthma. As President Donald Trump downplays the coronavirus pandemic before largely unmasked crowds, the nation is lurching toward what Joe Biden, citing health experts, warned will be a “dark winter” of disease and death.

GOP GOV FAULTS TRUMP’S ‘CONFUSING’ MESSAGES ABOUT MASKS Margaret Brennan, host of CBS’ “Face the Nation,” asked Arkansas’ Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson Sunday whether Trump’s reluctance to endorse mask-wearing enthusiastically hurt the governor’s ability to persuade his state to practice virus mitigation measures. “Well, it makes it confusing,” Hutchinson said. Trump has “made it very clear that wearing a mask is important. I saw him wear a mask going into the polls yesterday. But obviously, with the rallies, there is confusing messages there.” Hutchinson said the president must be “truthful and realistic” about the crisis. [HuffPost]
’60 MINUTES’ AIRS TRUMP ABRUPTLY LEAVING INTERVIEW “60 Minutes” aired footage of Trump abruptly ending an interview with the network after host Lesley Stahl asked a series of questions about his response to the COVID-19 pandemic and his use of social media to govern by tweet and attack his political opponents. The release of the interview concluded an ongoing spat between CBS and the White House that grew last week after Trump said he had left a sit-down with Stahl he called “fake” and “biased.” He later released the footage himself, turning the interview into a headline-grabbing event before it even aired.

But after reviewing the book, Stahl said it didn’t actually include Trump’s “comprehensive health plan.” It was filled with executive orders and congressional initiatives, but no plan. [HuffPost]
