David Waldman pilots the KITM’s raft of stories through Tuesday without a sandbar in sight.
Hey, have you been vaccinated yet? President Joe Biden wants 90% of us eligible within 3 weeks, and the rest of us a month from now, so that we can all celebrate Get Closer to Normal Day, on July 4th! For the time being, cut out the crazy stuff! Do you want to doom us all? Speaking of, those folks who thought Covid was a hoax, and vaccines were dangerous, now believe that admitting they did get vaccinated is like the Holocaust, except with more devils and corporate communism, blarg! Occasionally, a Republican will have disaster hit close enough to them to consider it real, but those are few and far between.
Some 1/6 insurrectionists might get the sedition charges they deserve. Maga tourists who cheered on police beatings, and followed rioters into the Capitol won’t get half of what they deserve. Ghislaine Maxwell now is charged with sex trafficking, and it would just be impossible for her to receive commensurate punishment. Donald Trump would need to live hundreds of years.
The SolarWinds hack got emails of top DHS officials, which is pretty much its goal.
Lawyer Cleta Mitchell advised Trump on how to destroy democracy, and has retired to take it up full time. Perhaps the word “democracy’s” similarity to “Democratic” is what’s setting them off? Some people are talking about how Democrats in 2021 with Joe Manchin are similar to Republicans in 2001 with Jim Jeffords. David talks about how they aren’t.
Joan McCarter calls in to discuss how Chuck Schumer can make reconciliation work again. You would think that infrastructure would be a bipartisan opportunity, but no, you might not even get Joe Manchin to hook up with that. Ending the filibuster is the only solution. Mitch McConnell has seen this coming for a long time.
