Hungary’s govt could end emergency powers in late June, ease curbs in Budapest next week — RT Newsline

Hungary’s government could end emergency powers obtained to fight the coronavirus pandemic in late June, Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s chief of staff said on Thursday. The move will depend on the evolution of the pandemic, Gergely Gulyas added.

The government is considering an easing of restrictions in Budapest from next week due to a decline in infections, the official told an online press briefing.

The easing measures, which Gulyas did not specify, would take effect from Monday after discussions with the mayor of Budapest. Hotels outside the capital would be allowed to reopen from next week, Reuters quoted him as saying.

Seth Meyers Unloads on ‘White House Liar’ Kayleigh McEnany

As Seth Meyers put it on Monday, President Donald Trump “spent his Sunday night embarrassing the Lincoln Memorial on Fox News, which makes sense because he’s constantly in a state of either watching Fox or appearing on Fox or watching himself appearing on Fox.”

“Trump also surrounds himself with people he sees on Fox, from informal advisers to White House aides,” the Late Night host continued.

The latest name on that long list is former Fox pundit Kayleigh McEnany, who graduated to White House Press Secretary last month and gave her first briefing this past Friday.

“McEnany’s hiring very much illustrates the feedback loop of disinformation and propaganda that exists between the Trump White House and Fox News,” Meyers said. In her role as spokesperson for the Trump campaign, he explained, McEnany spent much of February telling “outlandish lies” about the president’s response.

“Trump apparently decided to reward McEnany for her blind loyalty by making her White House press secretary,” the host said later. “And on Friday, she seamlessly transitioned from Fox News liar to White House liar.”
