OAKLAND — The city’s director of its housing and community development department is leaving her position, a city spokesman said Monday. “We are so appreciative of Michele Byrd’s service to Oakland and her dedication to housing issues. As this is a personnel matter and, out of respect for Michele’s privacy, we will not comment further on this matter,” Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf spokesman Justin Berton said in a statement. “Housing security is one of the highest and most urgent priorities for Oakland and our entire region.” Berton said that Maraskeshia Smith, an Oakland assistant city administrator, will handle “day-to-day oversight” for the department beginning May 3. Smith, a former director for Cincinnati’s department of public services, began working for the city last July. Byrd, a former special projects manager for the city and county of San Francisco, served as the housing department’s deputy director before becoming director in February 2012. Against an extraordinary backdrop that showcases disparities in perspectives on housing regionally and closer to home, Byrd served during some of the city’s bigger housing moves, including its June 2017 vote to spend some Measure KK funds to acquire residential hotels and other properties to house some of its homeless followed months later by its acquisition of East Oakland’s E.C. Reems Gardens Apartments as well as last year’s acquisition and opening of a 70-unit West Oakland hotel. Byrd’s departure renewed attention to an NBC Bay Area investigative report last month that questioned the department’s enforcement efforts against landlords over wrongful evictions.

NOAM CHOMSKY: Well, Trump is—you know, I think there are a number of illusions about Trump. If you take a look at the Trump phenomenon, it’s not very surprising. Think back for the last 10 or 15 years over Republican Party primaries, and remember what happened during the primaries. Each primary, when some candidate rose […]

The biggest trends at the moment, like chunky dad shoes and oversized hoodies, is a style that is worn by both men and women.

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., saw a couple of viral moments during a televised town hall on Monday night.

The first: what critics and analysts have called her “please clap” moment. Klobuchar was boasting that in each of her elections she won every congressional district in her state, including that of former Rep. Michele Bachmann, a Republican.

After the audience didn’t react to her victories, Klobuchar gave them permission to be excited.

“It’s when you guys are supposed to cheer, okay?” Klobuchar grinned, which prompted applause and some laughter.

Many on social media have drawn comparisons to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who famously told a town hall crowd to “please clap” on the campaign trail during the 2016 election.

Later on, the Minnesota Democrat had an awkward encounter with CNN anchor and town hall moderator Chris Cuomo.

While discussing how to address climate change with rural voters, Klobuchar stressed how important it was and told Cuomo that she wanted to “finish” her thought before he interrupted.

She then, however, felt a little creeped out by Cuomo’s presence.

“I feel you creeping over my shoulder,” Klobuchar told the CNN anchor. She jokingly clarified, “not in a Trumpian manner.”

Klobuchar was referring to the second presidential debate in 2016. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton later accused then-candidate Donald Trump of being a “creep” for approaching behind her on the debate stage and claimed her “skin crawled” in her memoir, “What Happened.”

Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota urged a town hall audience in New Hampshire to cheer after one of her answers was met with silence.

The 2020 Democratic presidential contender’s seemingly lighthearted appeal came after she responded to a question on how she planned to appeal to middle-class voters from the Midwest who picked Donald Trump in the last election.

“I guess you look at what I’ve done, and that is that I am someone that runs in a purple state,” Klobuchar said of Minnesota. “Every single time I have run, I have won every single congressional district in my state, including Michele Bachmann’s.”

Her answer was greeted with silence.

“That’s when you guys are supposed to cheer, OK?” she said.

The CNN town hall was one of five in New Hampshire featuring presidential hopefuls – Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg were set to follow Klobuchar and field questions directly from students and young New Hampshire Democrats.

Klobuchar’s “clap” moment was reminiscent of former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s “Please Clap!” moment in 2016 during the GOP primary contest for the presidential campaign.
