4,0656 people died *yesterday* from COVID-19 in US.
Hospitalization bounced back up to 131,326, after dropping for a few days. Average deaths per day now up to 3,303.
We are likely to cross 400,000 deaths from COVID-19 before end of Trump's term, which is just horrifying.
*4,056, not 4,0656, deaths yesterday from COVID-19.

Republicans want US to forgive & forget their violent insurrection at the Capitol, 6 day ago, but:
1) No forgiveness without accountability.
2) No unity with white nationalists.
3) We cannot move on while they are still, literally, threatening another attack in the next few days.
Before any consideration of forgiveness or unity: Republican leaders unequivocally call off the violence they have planned this weekend into the Inauguration.

Its basically 5 PM ET, seems reasonable to start drinking.
It was just earlier *this week* that President Trump threatened the Georgia Secretary of State to overturn the presidential election in his state, on tape. That was Sunday!
It was *3 days ago* that Democrats captured both senate seats in GA to win senate (along w/ house & presidency). Republicans did not take it well: Trump, Hawley, Cruz, >50% of Republicans in house, orchestrated a bloody take-over of the Capitol to try to block transfer of power.

If I need to sum up my Twitter feed for past 4 years it has basically been yelling this at political & media elite. Hence why I woke up super angry this morning that they have been mocking & derided this warning from atop their high horses for the last 4 years.
.@chucktodd a poster-boy for people whose quest for access, proximity to power, has blinded them to the reality of the Republican Party & right-wing terrorism, was literally on @MSNBC comparing McConnell to Churchill, as terrorists were storming the Capitol.
.@chucktodd just wanted so badly to absolve the Republican leadership of their nurture & protection of Trumpism over the last 4 years, he was willing to toss 4 years corruption, incompetence, cruelty, authoritarianism, and outright disloyalty to US, away for one decent speech.

Important to arrest those MAGA Terrorists who stormed & occupied the Capitol yesterday: we cannot tolerate attacks on our govt

Even *more* important to hold accountable those leaders who created & led those MAGA Terrorists with their rhetoric: @HawleyMO @tedcruz @realDonaldTrump ImageImage
This attack on the Capitol, a show of strength of MAGA Terrorism, was the entire point of the last 2 months from the Trump Family & their followers in the senate & house. They were never going to overthrow the election, the republic, legislatively, they needed force to scare US.
If these terrorist leaders are allowed to escape this bloody attempted coup without political or legal repercussions, they will emerge stronger, and their white nationalist dreams, backed by violence & terror, will cripple US in the years ahead.

"This land is YOUR land
This land is MY land
From California to the New York Island
From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for YOU and ME ...
... One bright sunny morning, in the shadow of the steeple
By the relief office I saw my people
As they stood there hungry, I stood there wondering if
This land was made for you and me ...
... Was a big high wall there that tried to stop me
Was a great big sign that said, "Private Property"
But on the other side, it didn't say nothing
That side was made for you and me ...
