In all seriousness, Joe Biden's speech about how he has already put plans together to deal with covid was so REFRESHING!! There is a way to take charge without running roughshod over everyone else.

Even President Elect Biden's tweets are rational and soothing. I feel like we can breath again.

Lawrence is also the only one talking about how black voters tipped the balance in this election and largely saved Biden’s campaign.

 

The other hacks can only talk about how much better Trump did with Black and Latino voters this election vs. 2016.

News outlets will prolong declaring the race as long as possible for ratings. They won't have the constant stream of drama to cover in a couple of months and they will get as much out of it as they can before it is.

It's about damn time for someone from the MSM to acknowledge the role we played in this election.  God bless Lawrence O'Donnell.

Yes. It's still so weird for me to comprehend that he was once married to Kathryn Harrold (Nola Dancy Aldrich #1, TD). I can't even picture them together. But - I digress.

Serves him right!!!

 

ETA: @Vee, I see you got there first. All this stuff hits so fast I missed your post.

And he was basically face to face with Don Jr. and very close to Tiffany and Eric Jr. too.  I didn't see Ivanka.

Well, it's not like they haven't been warned enough about the risks. Just once, I wish the elder Trump sons would grow a pair and put on masks. Is setting off Daddy for the millionth time really worse than being superspreaders? 

 

Several of the news outlets say that in addition to Mark Meadows, four additional aides also tested positive. Not good.

 

@Juliajms, I feel the same way you do about Joe Biden's tweets. Trump yammered about "Sleepy Joe" being boring. Hey, I will gladly take a "boring" President who actually WORKS, listens to experts and doesn't YELL all the time (or post tweets in all caps).

The clip @Vee posted a few pages back of the Trump supporters waving flags and dancing to Rage Against the Machine without a shred of awareness or hint of irony has ruined me. Why don't these people ever listen to the lyrics of these songs lol.

 

Scott Morrison was just on the news talking about how excited he is to started working with Biden, so clearly the rest of the world leaders got tired of waiting for it to be called and has just called it themselves. The Prime Minister of Fiji did the same thing.

Reminder: Olivia Nuzzi is a fascist. But to me that quote is true. He's been terrified people are laughing at him all his life.

Paula White is back at it! Featuring: Her real life son Brad, formerly "Walking in Background Guy", now "Kneeling Knitting Guy". Why did he pace around reading a newspaper in a bathrobe in her last video? Why is he knitting now? Search me.
