In an @NPR interview, China’s ambassador warned “military conflict” was “likely” if the continued its course on Taiwan. Why now? Here, @FareedZakaria tells @ErinBurnett that China can see democratic Taiwan drifting away, and feels that “maybe time is not on their side.”

Cannot recommend this @UpFirst Sunday episode enough. It’s reflective, questioning and a deeper dive on some of the most important questions of our day. Exactly the kind of episode I had hoped for when we decided to go all in on a Sunday episode. Thank you @rachelnpr

I am so grateful Tamika Calhoun of Jackson was so candid with us about what she hasn't been able to buy to feed her children (and herself, for that matter, a fact she keeps from them. And being afraid to take a sick day, because it would cost them so dearly. Important to hear.

Gorsuch refuses to mask up to protect Sotomayor; Alito still thinks he should have been CJ; the libs are beside themselves; & the conservative fissures are showing amid competition to succeed Scalia. Altogether, not a happy group at #SCOTUS .

Secretary of State Antony Blinken told @NPRKelly that it's "unclear" exactly where Russia stands after a week of talks on Ukraine. But if Moscow pursues aggression, the U.S. and its allies are prepared — and Russia will face "massive consequences."
