“Trump directly asked the Justice Department nine times to undermine the election result”
during this period, Politico dismissed Trump’s behavior as nothing more than “bad sportsmanship”;
from @POITICO: "So far this looks a lot more like bad sportsmanship accompanied by a misinformation campaign, and not some well-thought out plot to stay in power. "

DC press did *not* see this coming
quick explainer: GOP had told Dems we oppose raising debt, and vote is filibustered, so you need 10 GOP votes instead of straight Dem vote

then McConnell blinked said ok to temp debt deal, but vote still technically filibustered and he can’t find 10 GOP’s to vote yes.

the @AP is broken

Americans favor mandate by **nearly 20 pts** so AP spins it as “deep divide”; apnews.com/article/corona…
first person quoted in story is Republican voter who opposes mandates even tho, according to poll, they represent just 34% of country
why the “divide”? bc GOP’s don’t like the mandate. (Dems and independents do)

so in eyes of AP, the radical minority (34%} is just as important as the overwhelming majority

“Fox News didn’t even try to spin the Arizona results, which confirmed Biden’s victory again. Instead, the network made a wholesale decision not to cover a story which the network *had covered all year long*.”
