Trump's Covid-19 vaccine timeline is seriously wishful thinking. Here's why.

  Trump's Covid-19 vaccine timeline is seriously wishful thinking. Here's why. Creating a safe vaccine is just one step. We then need to distribute it to a huge number of Americans.There’s an obvious political reason why Trump — or other lawmakers — might wish to get our hopes up about a vaccine before the November election.

Fact check: 'Kingdom of God' comment by SCOTUS contender Amy Coney Barrett is missing context in meme .
A 2006 remark about the "Kingdom of God" is missing context in a meme that also falsely attributes views on ending separation of church and state. The widely cited reference to Barrett encouraging a “Kingdom of God” is taken out of context. Fact check: No guarantee Obama would've replaced Ginsburg with a progressive justice Amy Coney Barrett’s religious and judicial views Barrett is a conservative and a favorite among the religious right.
