I hope someone else saw that Don Lemon rant on CNN. 5-10 minutes of personal anecdotes, scathing rhetoric and real passion.

But I was (somewhat unexpectedly) really inspired by Biden's speech.

Great series. I liked the inclusion of the "anonymous sources". No regime survives without enough cowards to sustain it.

And for at least four years, the global gag rule will be archived again.

Welp, now that the celebration is over... this is going to be a crazy two months. We have a pandemic that is flaring up just in time for the cold weather and a president who doesn't care, the same president who is still sending messages via social media and his campaign email to supporters claiming that he won the election.

And oh btw most of the GOP still hasn't acknowledged the race being called, and there's going to be two incredibly contentious senate runoffs.

Nobody said it was going to be easy

I’m a bit surprised most of the GOP aren’t coming out and recognizing the election. They pretty much accomplished what they wanted these last four years and now can continue without the headache that Trump is.

As much as I dislike focus on her clothes, as a lover of fashion I thought it was beautiful. She also makes me want to buy a pair of Chuck Taylors.

Not only is she so close with her husband's adult kids from his first marriage, she is good friends with his first wife. I think that says good things about Kamala. And about his first wife too of course. The first second gentleman is a lucky man, he seems very likeable.

A tweet for everything

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump


What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate.

70 million people voted for Trump, second most in US history behind only the 75+ million who voted for Biden.

This will cause some hesitancy on the GOP's part, especially with an important runoff and then again in 2022.

Nice to celebrate on the weekend. Maybe the media planned that all along. Sunday to recover.

Dems need to stop fighting in public right now and focus on GA.

There needs to be a mix of moderate to progressive ideas from this administration. What plays well in NY doesn’t translate 100% somewhere like GA.

Read that the Yang Gang is heading down to GA to help mobilize turnout.
