Public health experts are out here trying to get people to cancel their Thanksgivings ahead of a cresting wave of hospitalization and death, and the Speaker thinks it’s a good time to have an indoor banquet?
New members — just don’t attend. Even if it were entirely safe to spend hours in an enclosed space with people from around the country rn, which it’s not, there’s no way the photos coming out of this event are going to be anything but a giant albatross around your necks.

Please do not slip back into bothsides coverage.
To recap, the D-controlled House *passed* two Covid relief bills; the R-controlled Senate hasn’t taken one up yet. The Trump White House repeatedly calls off negotiations with the House; when talks do go forward, the Senate refuses to attend.
The biggest apparent problem in the process is that the Republican leadership in the Senate does not have enough votes in its own conference to pass any relief bill and is unwilling to pass a bill (and potentially defeat its own members’ filibuster$ with Democratic votes.

Whatever it was, pretty sure I’m not gonna like it.

Media decision desks were willing to call Virginia for Biden when he was behind in the tabulation, but they are letting us go through a long national game of ‘99 bottles of beer on the wall’ with Pennsylvania. Am I right to think this is bc calling PA is calling the presidency?

The votes have been CAST—in many cases postmarked and given to the federal government—but they still need to be COUNTED. Every vote needs to be counted.
He deleted it, but Scavino is gonna repost it with “poles” spelled correctly.
