Minneapolis on fucking fire

Did you see the footage of all the people running in and out of the torched Minneapolis police station, yesterday? Quite a few white, teen-aged girls, looking like they were having a decent time.

  • The chilling killing of George Floyd by a white policeman in Minneapolis ignited so much righteous rage and fear — massive, peaceful "I can't breathe" protests across the American map, then looting and arson by dark.
Continental Wine & Liquor, a few blocks from the White House, was looted live at 12:30 a.m. on WTTG Channel 5 (Fox), with dozens of people boosting cases of wine and beer in full view of the camera.

  • Scaffolding on the temple-like U.S. Chamber of Commerce was torched.
  • A fancy downtown office building has the F-word scrawled on it, the windows smashed, a restaurant inside burned.
All day, the focus was on George Floyd, with chants of "Hands up, don't shoot" in city after city.

  • At night, it was just chaos. In the wee hours, WTTG's Josh Rosenthal stood at Vermont and L, near the White House, and said: "There are no police around."
In L.A., KABC's SkyMap7 helicopter lingered live over vandals breaking into an ATM they had hauled out of a nail salon.

  • In Raleigh, N.C., more than 1,000 turned out to protest George Floyd's death. As night fell, "police repeatedly used tear gas and smoke bombs; and ... shot rubber bullets at protesters and journalists," The News & Observer reported.
  • Two banks burned to the ground in the quaint San Diego suburb of La Mesa.
  • Nike Chicago was ransacked.
  • "CHAOS AND CRISIS IN AMERICA," the CNN banner said over live split screens of the mayhem, as cities clicked by in tragic pairs.
AP tallied nearly 1,700 protest-related arrests in 22 cities since Thursday, nearly a third of them in L.A.

  • 14 states activated or planned to activate the National Guard, and at least 25 cities imposed curfews, CNN reports.

The cracks in Trump’s GOP shield


President Trump’s mockery of coronavirus masks, his false claims about the dangers of voting by mail and his insinuations that a cable TV nemesis was involved in a murder are testing more high-profile Republicans' willingness to look the other way, managing editor David Nather writes.

  • Why it matters: Republicans learned a long time ago how dangerous it is to alienate Trump’s base — which is why any hint of disagreement, even a whisper, is so remarkable when it happens.
How Trump has pushed the limits:

Masks: Trump refuses to wear them at public events and has even turned them into a symbol of a culture war, accusing one White House reporter of being "politically correct" for wearing one.

  • Reality check: That’s basically a middle finger to public health experts.
Joe Scarborough: The MSNBC host and former GOP congressman has gotten under Trump’s skin by unleashing extended tirades against him every morning — and now Trump has been insinuating on Twitter that Scarborough was involved in the death of a former congressional staffer in 2001.

  • Reality check: The medical examiner ruled the death an accident, and concluded that the former staffer, Lori Klausutis, had a heart condition and died when she fell and hit her head on a desk, per FactCheck.org.
  • She was in Florida; Scarborough was in D.C.
Voting by mail: Trump has been falsely suggesting that voting by mail is a “scam” and will lead to massive voting fraud.

Minneapolis: A Trump tweet warned the Minneapolis protesters that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts."

  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's statement had a different tone: "[O]ur city, our state, and our country have to pull together."
  • House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted that George Floyd's memory should be honored by "rebuilding America into a more perfect union."
