    Trump is running a campaign about how his opponent has lost his mind while himself delivering disjointed monologues filled with made-up stories, absurd boasts, petty grievances and verbal stumbles. https://t.co/bsgojoRM5e

👋 Whoa! WTF is this?

Current Status is the consensus view of the current top U.S. political stories from a cross-section of the news media ecosystem.


There are three components that determine the Current Status: First, there is an editorially-responsible algorithm that considers the signals news editors send about a story's news value. Second, there's a human-in-the-loop curating the list and providing oversight to ensure that the Current Status is a fair and accurate representation of the day's essential political stories. And third, Current Status is biased toward recent, highly-cited stories, with an emphasis on depth and accuracy. The stars are a reflection of a story's current relative news value.

This is what the political web is talking about right now.

    The election is 112 days away and this is what Americans are seeing. We have zoomed past embarrassing and into territory that is genuinely alarming. There was no reassurance that Trump was on the case; no sense of either empathy or a plan. https://t.co/KNGPkzaRvU

    It is hard to write this without using the word “impaired.” Because it wasn’t just the disjointed word salad. Trump was somnolent, as if he’d pulled an all-nighter watching Fox & Friends or maybe his VCR tapes of Shark Week. https://t.co/KNGPkzaRvU
