Former first lady Michelle Obama announced that a documentary based on her best selling memoir, Becoming, will be released on Netflix on May 6.
I’m excited to share that on May 6, @Netflix will release BECOMING, a documentary directed by Nadia Hallgren that shares the stories of the amazing people I met after the release of my memoir. During this difficult time, I hope you’ll find some inspiration and joy in this film. pic.twitter.com/fqsIbhXYeL
Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell will convene the US Senate on May 4.
In a statement on Monday afternoon, McConnell said the Senate, which adjourned last month, must “honor our constitutional duty to the American people.”
If it is essential for doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, truck drivers, grocery-store workers, and many other brave Americans to keep carefully manning their own duty stations, then it is essential for Senators to carefully man ours and support them.
This crisis has every part of our society in dire need of stability, clarity, and certainty,” McConnell wrote. “The Senate has already stepped up, but our work is not over. I look forward to seeing all my colleagues next Monday.”
