By  Katrina Lusteck

Today is August 9. Below are some of the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room.

1 – CNN’s Chris Wallace: Democrats appear set to tell Biden ‘enjoy your retirement’ in 2024
The Hill reports: Chris Wallace thinks that President Biden might not wind up as Democrats’ choice to run for president in 2024, underscoring a sentiment that has been simmering among some members of the party and media pundits in recent weeks.

“Remember, in the CNN poll of polls, I think it’s 75 percent of Democrats say they would like to see another Democratic nominee for president in 2024, you know, and we’ve seen this in businesses that, you know, ‘Thank you very much for your service. Here’s the gold watch. Enjoy your retirement,’” Wallace said on “At This Hour” on Monday morning.

The former Fox News anchor, who was hired by CNN last year to join its since-shuttered streaming service, acknowledged Biden’s recent legislative wins “after a lot of stalemate” and dreary approval ratings.

“Whether or not a large percentage of that 75 percent, three-quarters of Democrats, are going to say, ‘You know what, I’m excited by the idea of a guy who on next Inauguration Day would be 82 running for election again,’ I’m not so sure about that,” Wallace said.

MY TAKE: “Here’s the gold watch!”

2 – ‘I’m glad’: Top progressive Dem says ‘Trump should be in jail’ after FBI raid
Washington Examiner reports: Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) praised the FBI for raiding former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort Monday.

The leader of the Congressional Progressive Caucus expressed her pleasure of the news of the raid in a tweet as allies of Trump expressed their disapproval.

“Donald Trump should be in jail. I’m glad to see the FBI taking steps towards accountability,” Jayapal said.

MY TAKE: Democrats have broken the law many times without consequence. Jayapal needs to button up.

3 – Ex-Ohio court mediator allegedly sent over 30 letters containing feces to Republican lawmakers
NBC News reports: An Ohio man is in custody after being accused of sending about three-dozen feces-filled letters to lawmakers around the country, including Ohio’s 25 Republican state senators in early July.

Police arrested Richard Steinle, a 77-year-old from Mogadore, Ohio, and former Portage County Common Pleas Court mediator on Friday. Steinle is charged with sending “injurious articles as nonmailable,” violating a federal law that prohibits mailing certain things, including hazardous material, according to court records.

The misdemeanor charge carries a maximum prison sentence of one year and a $100,000 fine. A message seeking comment was left with Steinle’s lawyer.

MY TAKE: Absolute sicko!

4 – Embattled actor Ezra Miller charged with felony burglary in Vermont
New York Post reports: Miller, 29, was charged with felony burglary and is accused of stealing several bottles of alcohol from a house in Stamford earlier this year, according to a newly released police report.

“The Flash” star was charged after the homeowners — who weren’t home at the time of the alleged burglary — reported the missing bottles to police on May 1. A subsequent investigation, in which police reviewed surveillance videos, led cops to charge Miller.

Police caught up to Miller — who uses they/them pronouns — more than three months later on Aug. 7 and issued them a citation to appear in Vermont Superior Court on Sept. 26 to be arraigned on the charge.

MY TAKE: This guy is a mess! He’s been accused of assault, grooming kids, and more. He’s a dangerous, wild individual and certainly no hero.

5 – Hotel employee lists the five things she would NEVER do in a room
Daily Mail reports: A hotelier has described the five things she would never do in a hotel room, knowing how regularly it is cleaned and what safety practices are followed.

TikTok user Evangeline shared a video about her experiences working in an American hotel and what to watch out for when you book your next room.

1. “If there is more than one person staying in the room I would never not add their name on the reservation.”

2. “I would never use the remote control without wiping it down first. Your cleaning and my cleaning are different cleaning, you feel me?”

3.”I would never use the glasses in the room, I’m talking about the glasses in the room ready for you to use, I would never use them without washing them first.”

4. “I would never sit on the bedspread. A bedspread is not the sheet, it’s not the blanket, it’s on top of that. That thing comes off the first minute I walk into the hotel.”

5. “I would always have a pair of flip flops on. I would also not take a shower without wearing them.”

WATCH:

MY TAKE: This is one of the reason’s I hate traveling. I disinfect everything and spend too much time worrying about what we could encounter. I have a hard time trusting the hotel, and this just confirms my fears! But I don’t fear my overall health because I take CBD. You should, too. Here’s a new offer from DML to help.
