Daily Memo: The Democrats’ elephant in the room
Byron York in the Washington Enquirer:
The Democratic convention took place on Nights 82, 83, 84, and 85 of rioting in Portland. On Thursday night, as Biden spoke, a crowd returned to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building where a riot had been declared the night before. A confrontation ensued that ended in tear gas fired by Federal Protective Services officers, whose job it is to safeguard federal buildings around the country. Also in Portland, the disorder has moved from the central location — the federal courthouse — where it took place for so many nights out to various neighborhoods around the city.
