                        Former U.S. Republican Sen. Bob Corker this week downplayed talk that he might run for United States president. The former Tennessee senator also opined on whether and how his brand of Republican Party differs from what it is currently under former U.S. President Donald Trump.

    The president believes that it is important to continue, but Nintendo will have to evolve. Nintendo is one of the most important video game companies and the Japanese company is going through a big moment thanks to the incredible sales of Nintendo Switch and its video games. Its greatness has been built over time and has had in its ranks some of the most influential people in the industry, such as Satoru Iwata, who passed away in 2015. In an interview on the Nikkei portal (and thanks to the VGC translation), the current president of Nintendo, Shuntaro Furukawa, has commented that the company still influenced for the work philosophy of Hiroshi yamauchi (also already deceased and who was president of Nintendo from 1949 to 2002) and Satoru Iwata. In fact, Furukawa believes that Switch has been the continuation of their way of working. “Unfortunately, I have...
    MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson, Katy Tur, and Stephanie Ruhle repeatedly grilled Robert Ray, a member of Donald Trump’s defense team during his first impeachment trial, pushing the attorney to reveal his involvement in the current trial. Jackson began by asking Ray if he could have done a better job than attorney Bruce Castor, who stunned viewers of the trial with his rambling defense, questioning if he had been asked to return to the team. Ray said he was unable to disclose that information, but revealed he had no plans to visit Washington D.C. anytime soon. The attorney then noted that Trump will be acquitted either way, despite Castor’s presentation, citing the “merits” of the former president’s case. “Can you explain how whether you were asked to defend the president is privileged?” Tur asked, noticing that the information could only be privileged if Ray had current ties to Trump. “Does that mean that you’re currently working with the president?...
    Doug Mills-Pool/Getty Images. Plenty of former officials who served under President Donald Trump have blasted him on Wednesday after his supporters violently stormed the U.S. Capitol. Now, a current administration official has checked in with a blistering condemnation of his own. In a statement posted to Twitter that might be more fitting for a two-bit tyrant in a failed state overseas, Gabriel Noronha — a spokesman for the senior policy adviser to the Secretary of State — blasted the U.S. president for stirring up armed political insurgents who attacked the Capitol and laid siege to it for hours. “President Trump fomented an insurrectionist mob that attacked the Capitol today,” Noronha wrote. “He continues to take every opportunity to obstruct the peaceful transfer of power. These actions threaten our democracy and our Republic. Trump is entirely unfit to remain in office, and needs to go.” All government officials swear to uphold...
    ^ Keep Westword Free Support Us I Support Local Community Journalism Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free. Support Us Two restaurants in Uptown operated by Aileen Reilly, chef Paul Reilly and JP Taylor are closing temporarily, joining many other eateries that are taking weeks — or the entire winter — off. "After much consideration, we have made the decision to temporarily close both Beast + Bottle and Coperta," Paul Reilly wrote in an email announcing the move. "The current restrictions are just not sustainable, and for the health of our long-term business, we are hibernating the restaurants until indoor dining, guest confidence and a more plausible stimulus package are in place." Congress passed a new stimulus package before Christmas, and President Donald Trump finally signed it on December 28, so the Paycheck Protection Program that helped restaurants reopen...
    Vice President-elect Kamala Harris introduced appointees for three of her most senior policy positions Thursday, two of whom are current or former staffers for the Clinton family. Harris named Hartina Flournoy as her chief of staff, who is currently serving as former President Bill Clinton’s chief of staff, according to a press release. Her pick for national security adviser, Nancy McEldowney, also worked on Clinton’s foreign policy team in the White House. Harris also tapped Rohini Kosoglu for domestic policy adviser, who served as Harris’ chief of staff in the Senate and during her brief presidential campaign. “Together with the rest of my team, today’s appointees will work to get this virus under control, open our economy responsibly and make sure it lifts up all Americans, and restore and advance our country’s leadership around the world,” Harris said in a statement.

    New York (CNN Business)Former President Barack Obama skewered the state of America's media ecosystem, lamenting the fact that wild conspiracy theories such as QAnon have found haven in the Republican Party and calling out Fox News for its role in corrupting the public conversation.In a Wednesday interview with "Pod Save America," a podcast hosted by former members of his administration, Obama described President Donald Trump as a "symptom" and "accelerant" of an environment flooded with bad information."When you look at insane conspiracy theories like QAnon seeping into the mainstream of the Republican Party, what that tells you is that there are no more guardrails within that media ecosystem," Obama said, referring to the baseless conspiracy theory that suggests top Democratic officials and Hollywood celebrities are Satanic worshipers complicit in child sex-trafficking rings. Fox News portrayed it as one of the biggest scandals in American history. Then it fell apartObama said...
    Though Denver Public Schools will be shut down until October 16, the Denver Public Library is just starting a soft reopening, and many workers for the City and County of Denver are doing their gigs from home, Halloween is still happening. The holiday comes as coronavirus cases rise nationally and President Donald Trump, who is dealing with COVID-19, mugs as though he's doing fine and encourages residents of the United States not to be scared. But plenty of people are, especially as they contemplate kids and trick-or-treat activities. And so the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment has released a set of guidelines regarding what people can do to reduce their risk of transmitting or catching the virus as they celebrate Halloween. The guidelines are based on the county's current status on the state's COVID-19 Dial Dashboard, where Denver falls somewhere in the middle, under Safer at Home, Level 2 Concern, with enough cases...

    Ludovic Marin, Getty Images A stunning new report from The Washington Post states that President Donald Trump has privately maintained a number of viewpoints that can at best be called controversial, but perhaps more accurately racist, about a number of minority groups in the United States. The article is written by Greg Miller, which cites comments made by what he broadly describes as “current and former U.S. officials.” The article opens with the following three paragraphs: In unguarded moments with senior aides, President Trump has maintained that Black Americans have mainly themselves to blame in their struggle for equality, hindered more by lack of initiative than societal impediments, according to current and former U.S. officials. After phone calls with Jewish lawmakers, Trump has muttered that Jews “are only in it for themselves” and “stick together” in an ethnic allegiance that exceeds other loyalties, officials said. Trump’s private musings about Hispanics...
    Democrat Joe Biden's presidential campaign has amassed more than 190 endorsements from sheriffs, prosecutors and attorneys general even as Donald Trump centers his campaign around a call for 'law and corder. The list includes former sheriffs, state attorneys general, and U.S. attorneys. Many come from battleground states such as Colardao, Michigan, and Arizona, during a campaign when protests and violent clashes in cities has become an undercurrent of the campaign.  Some of those lending the name to the effort, which was reported by Fox News, blasted Trump as a 'lawless' president. Joe Biden's campaign announced the backing of 190 former sheriffs, state attorneys general, and U.S. attorneys Among them was Noble Wray, the retired police chief of Madison, Wisconsin. “It’s ironic that a lawless president claims to be the ‘law and order’ president,” Wray told the network. “We are at a crossroads with this nation, and we need a president that has...
    Poll shows that Donald Trump (left) is losing support. (Free Press Photo: .) In one of the worst pre-election polls for Trump, Biden collected 50% support against 36% of his rival, according to the survey by The New York Times and Sina College. Other recent polls assigned him on average 10 percentage points ahead of Biden, former vice president and virtual candidate of the Democratic opposition.

    FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver believes that President Donald Trump can “absolutely win” the 2020 election over former Vice President Joe Biden despite several polls showing the president down double-digits. Still, Trump “has his work cut out,” he said. Both CNN and Fox News have had Trump down 14 and 12 points to Biden in the last two weeks, respectively. The CNN poll led to Trump’s campaign sending the corporation a cease-and-desist letter while Trump lashed out against Fox over their numbers. Even a poll from Trump-friendly Scott Rasmussen had the president down double-digits, too. In 2016, FiveThirtyEight gave Trump a 29 percent chance to defeat Hilary Clinton for the presidency on the night of the election, much higher than most polls and 11 points larger than Trump’s betting odds. Weeks before the election, Silver was accused of “changing poll results to achieve a result beneficial to Trump” by a HuffPost writer. Silver...
