Biden’s Border Bungling Is Doing the GOP’s Work For It
Al Drago-Pool/Getty ImagesThe border crisis that President Joe Biden refuses to call a “crisis” may not be dominating the headlines but it is bad and getting worse on his watch, and he is under the gun to fix it.That won’t be easy. This is a problem that Biden helped resuscitate with his rhetoric, even before he was sworn in, enticing desperate migrants fleeing violence and poverty to try and illegally cross our border, and then with his move as president to roll back some of his predecessor’s border policies. As The New York Times noted in a story about thousands of migrant children who are crossing the border each week, “Their parents were encouraged to send for them by President Biden’s more welcoming approach to immigration.”Since March, Biden has been telling migrants not to come, but that messaging was too little, too late. This week, Politico reported that “The Department of Health and Human Services has diverted more than $2 billion meant for other health initiatives toward covering the cost of caring for unaccompanied immigrant children, as the Biden administration grapples with a record influx of migrants on the southern border.” That money may help but the fact he had to quietly move it there (never mind what other important “health initiatives” may now be given short shrift) makes it clear how much trouble he’s having handling this surge, or finding a solution past hoping it goes away on its own before it becomes a defining failure of his presidency.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Why David Alan Grier Turned Down ‘Saturday Night Live After’ ‘In Living Color’
Randy Holmes/GettyThree decades after they appeared together on In Living Color, David Alan Grier is now playing Jamie Foxx’s father on their new Netflix sitcom Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!—despite just an 11-year age difference between the two comedy icons.On this episode of The Last Laugh podcast, Grier recalls his first impressions of Foxx when he joined that legendary sketch series in its third season and tells some outrageous stories about doing the Super Bowl halftime show, hosting Saturday Night Live twice before turning down a spot in the show’s cast and tackling the rape charges against his one-time mentor Bill Cosby on The Carmichael Show.“I was never on the hip show, the cool show. Never,” Grier says. “When In Living Color came on, it hit so hard, so immediately, I mean, the reference point for all of us was a Black Saturday Night Live. When Eddie Murphy first blew up, there were rumors that Eddie wanted to do a Black Saturday Night Live. So In Living Color was actually that. I remember coming down in this green room we had downstairs and everybody was down there. The coolest, hippest, most famous people. So it was a real buzz, man. And after all those years of working, I was finally on this cool show, this hip show.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
‘F*ck the Olympics’: Inside Japan’s War to Dodge a COVID Disaster
Jung Yeon-Je/GettyTOKYO—As COVID infections and deaths continue to surge in Japan, so does the fiery opposition to the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics.Japan is now deep in a fourth wave of COVID-19, and Tokyo is in a state of emergency that will last at least until the end of the month—and probably even longer. The nation averages over 5,000 new cases a day, and last week, Tokyo averaged more than 750 new daily cases. Testing is limited, hospitals in major cities are over capacity, and people are dying at home waiting for medical care. Adding to that, the country’s vaccine rollout is abysmally slow, with less than 3 percent of the population vaccinated and a world ranking of around 110th place.But despite all that, the Japanese government and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) have decided that the Olympics games will go ahead, prompting fury from public figures ranging from prominent politicians, legendary film directors—and even former members of the yakuza, the Japanese mafia.Read more at The Daily Beast.

‘They Can Kiss My Ass’—Climbers Rip National Park Service Over New Rules
GettyIt’s hard to say what’s a more important site to see on a trip to Yosemite Valley—a bear or a rock climber. After all, Yosemite National Park is the mecca of the rock climbing universe, and only growing ever since the explosion of Alex Honnold’s free solo ascent of El Capitan.In the early 1950s, Camp 4 and rock climbing in the Valley became synonymous with counterculture, with a lifestyle of resistance and flying under the radar, a movement which has evolved and become distorted plenty of times over.While climbers and the National Park Service (NPS) historically haven’t gotten along, relations have improved in recent years. But a week ago, the feud was rekindled after the NPS announced a new two-year pilot program that as of May 21 will require climbers to get a permit in advance if they’re planning on spending the night (or several) on a big wall climb. This includes famous climbs like El Capitan, Half Dome, and the Leaning Tower, among others.Read more at The Daily Beast.
How Dems Can Force Manchin and Sinema to Put Up or Shut Up
Photos GettySenator Kyrsten Sinema is confused. At a private caucus meeting last week, she pointedly asked Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer why Democrats can’t overcome Republican opposition to the major ethics and voting rights reforms that Joe Biden promised voters, and that over 60 percent of Americans across party lines support. But Sinema wasn’t talking about the For the People Act that Schumer hopes to squeak through. She was referring to her own competing legislation.Not to be outdone, last week Senator Joe Manchin announced his own plan to address the GOP’s nationwide war on voting rights, a not-so-subtle way of saying he won’t be signing on to Schumer’s consensus bill, either.If Sinema and Manchin breaking ranks didn’t complicate matters enough, neither is willing to end or even modify the filibuster to get voting rights passed. Instead, they’re telling Democrats—and the millions of Americans at risk of losing their votes in 2022 and beyond—to trust in the myth of Senate bipartisanship. So Schumer should issue an ultimatum: find 10 Republicans to pass your bill or Democrats are taking down the filibuster.Read more at The Daily Beast.
