    Washington (CNN)Ahmaud Arbery was the victim. But for weeks, he was painted as a brute and a thug in the trial of the three White men who killed him.

Ok, so we’ve got the various variants. There might even be another form of a SARS that’s imposed on the international system, right? Their little plan with Covid didn’t work because too many people, you know, the world of what I call the digital warriors,...

    Barack Obama says he misses the 'fascinating' work of the presidency - joking in an interview with Stephen Colbert that he'd have liked to have a 'stand-in' so he could carry out a third term.  In an interview to promote his new memoir, Obama said that 'puzzling out' the biggest political issues was 'professionally really satisfying' - while adding that he did not miss 'having to wear a tie every day'.  'If I could make an arrangement where I had a stand-in, a frontman or frontwoman, and they had an earpiece in and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff, then I could sort of deliver the lines but somebody else was doing all the talking and ceremony, then I'd be fine with that because I found the work fascinating,' Obama said.  The pair also swiped at Donald Trump, with Colbert saying that the current president had shown that 'there's a whole bunch of stuff you don't actually have to do' and Obama responding: 'Who knew'?
