NYT: Everyone piled on Biden, but he held strong, or at least stronger this time than last; he appeared to withstand the attacks in the second of two Democratic debates this week, so it would appear this was a good week for Warren, Sanders, Buttigieg and Biden. I thought Booker did well last night, too. Meanwhile, Gabbard went hard on Harris's record as a prosecutor, delighting her Russian overlords. I mean, exciting Twitter.
What is happening on Instagram with the model Carissa or her IG @/twistpinkston . She is claiming she is trans-woman, but supposedly had transphobic comments in the past?

TRUE CRIME STORY: Layleen Cubilette-Polanco, the trans woman who died in her Rikers Island cell after being placed there alone in spite of a seizure disorder, was cleared to be in that restrictive, unsupervised situation — by a Rikers doctor.

EXTRATV: Mario Lopez and Extra respond to uproar over his comments on trans children made on (where else?) The Candace Owens Show. Lopez says:
The comments I made were ignorant and insensitive, and I now have a deeper understanding of how hurtful they were. I have been and always will be an ardent supporter of the LGBTQ community, and I am going to use this opportunity to better educate myself. Moving forward I will be more informed and thoughtful.
While we have enjoyed a long relationship with Mario Lopez, who we know to be a caring person, the opinions he expressed in this interview do not reflect those of Extra. We wholeheartedly embrace our friends from the LGBTQ community and believe they deserve support and love.
