What happened to the story about Reps Giving Capitol tours on 1/5.

Wasn’t it Louis Gohmert and some other Republicans Reps that showed some people around the Capitol building on the day before the insurrection?
Haven’t heard anymore about it other than when it was once mentioned.
Is that being investigated?

CNN or MSNBC should challenge Fox News to a debate.

I’d like to see a debate between some of the anchors on each network.
It would be simulcast between the two participating networks.
Each network would provide a three person panel.
A mutually agreed upon moderator and real time fact checker would be used.
The topics would include media political coverage, truth in media, bias in media, etc.

For Fox 🦊, they would use their three big gun prime time propagandists.
CNN or MSNBC would pick their three smartest and quickest thinkers on their feet.

Fox: Hannity, Carlson, Ingraham
CNN: Keillar, Lemon, Cuomo
MSNBC: Wallace, Maddow, ODonnell

This idea seems like something that CNN would more likely do than MSNBC because CNN doesn’t have to answer to a higher power for an ok like MSNBC does with NBC.
But, I’d be thrilled to see either network do it.

The two participating networks would agree to promote the simulcast for about a week.
Should be great ratings and I think the Fox people would be exposed as nothing but shills and their audience would be exposed, many for the first time, to opposing sound intelligence.

Do we need a Voting Rights Czar?

Not sure if Biden could create a new Cabinet position.
But I’d like to see a team run by Stacey Abrams or someone who has expertise in this area.
The GOP is already back to their suppression tactics in Pennsylvania and Georgia.
Could a federal department assist individual states in fighting such suppression until a new Voting Rights Act is passed?

Question 🙋‍♀️ from Sens Rubio and Cruz

Did anybody find out if my Father killed Kennedy?
Could someone please measure my hands 🙌 and President Trumps hands? That issue was never settled during the previous campaign and it continues to hurt my social life with the ladies.

Wake me when Trump is actually INDICTED.

Yes our house managers have done a great job.
But it’s only made me angrier about our system.
I’m so tired of the mafioso word salad of his mgt style of never saying the actual words about hurting someone but only implying or suggesting it as Michael Cohen told us he always has done.

I want real legal charges of some sort brought against him either in New York or when we get a Federal Attorney General.
Otherwise, it’s all just the same old stuff from him and his pathetic cowardly defenders with Dems scoring some good talking points but not much else.

Thanks for the hearts.

I’m in no way worthy of that type of admiration.

Hillary Clinton needs a daily radio show/podcast.

Just think how great this would be.
I’d call it: “I tried to tell you”.
She could do it at home for just one hour a day.
Either just her free wheeling on politics or she could have guests and/or take listener phone calls.
I think she’d be great at it and would have a huge audience.
