Four years ago, almost to the day, Donald Trump was on the campaign trail mocking Hillary Clinton’s bout of pneumonia and insisting that contracting such an illness rendered her too weak and unfit to be the president. The campaign ran what was called by some the nastiest political ad ever, called “Dangerous.” It depicted Clinton as a doddering invalid who was so incapacitated she couldn’t handle foreign policy and national security.

It’s not news that Donald Trump is a crude and cruel piece of work,

Biden campaign sees opportunity in military women, spouses, people of color

Mariel Padilla, The 19th
Published 4:13 a.m. MT Oct. 3, 2020


Nearly 500 retired generals, admirals and senior civilian national security officials endorse Joe Biden and blast President Donald Trump.


This story was published in partnership with The 19th, a nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom reporting on gender, politics and policy.

As the military’s support of President Donald Trump declines, according to recent polls, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign is working to woo both veterans and the families of active military members by capitalizing on media reports of Trump’s comments about the military, as well as the support of a high-profile military spouse. 

Given the increased diversity of the military — which has been going up for decades even as the total veteran population declines — talking to women and voters of color are key to the Biden campaign’s strategy.

Gucci’s Star-Studded Men’s Tailoring Campaign Upturns 2020’s ‘Predictable’ Fashion Scene

Gucci is a byword for luxury. The almost century-old brand has a long and storied history of fashion innovation, and under current men’s creative director Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s supremacy in the world of luxury fashion has been catapulted to new heights.

Michele’s brought a unique ‘geek chic’ vibe to the house, unearthing the kitschiest and wildest fashion trends of the 70s and applying a youthful, iconoclastic edge. Another feature of modern Gucci menswear has been its willingness to blur gender boundaries – celebrities like Harry Styles and Jared Leto pushing androgyny to the forefront of the public consciousness.

Gucci’s latest tailoring campaign charts a different course, however. The irreverent retro aesthetic that’s become a trademark of the brand remains stronger than ever, but Gucci has surprised fashion fans by unveiling a suite of incredibly masculine, eminently wearable suiting – and getting some of the music’s most fashionable (and talented) figures

Four reasons Biden’s campaigning-free campaign style won’t survive 2020, win or lose

Joe Biden has pursued an unorthodox strategy of running for president that involves not campaigning. Since March, Biden has rarely left his house. He holds few events, doesn’t give many interviews, and as of late, has wrapped up his public schedule early in the morning.

There has been some speculation about whether, if he proves successful, his 2020 campaign strategy will change how candidates run for office. But win or lose, there are several reasons Biden’s strategy is unlikely to be replicated in future presidential elections. Here are four of them:

Biden’s name recognition: It’s very rare for a challenger to be as well-known as Biden. Already somebody who served in the Senate for decades, Biden was in the public eye for eight years as vice president, including his personal struggle with grief after his son’s death from cancer. Typically, somebody challenging an incumbent needs to introduce himself to voters,
