In his retelling, Ashli Babbitt—who was shot and killed trying to enter the House chamber on Jan. 6—wasn’t so much a rioter as she was an “innocent, wonderful, incredible woman.” And, in Trump’s mind, some of the police officers who defended the Capitol that day aren’t the real heroes, calling them liberal “pussies” who loathe MAGA, and outliers within a broadly pro-Trump law enforcement community." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

The allegations include claims specifically naming Alex Afrasiabi, the former senior creative director of World of Warcraft. The suit says that on top of sexually harassing women, Afrasiabi had a hotel room during BlizzCon 2013 nicknamed the “Cosby Suite” — and it suggested that other employees knew about it." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer continues to put pressure on President-elect Joe Biden to forgive up to $50,000 in student debt per borrower on the first day of his presidency. “We have come to the conclusion that President Biden can undo this debt, can forgive $50,000 of debt the first day he becomes president,” Schumer said on Monday outside his office in Midtown Manhattan. “You don’t need Congress; All you need is the flick of a pen.” More than 40 million Americans have a lot riding on the answer of whether or not a president can forgive student debt without Congress. Borrowers could see their debts reduced or eliminated overnight if the president was able to act without legislation. Getting Congress to agree to forgive the loans, on the other hand, is not likely to occur any time soon, if ever." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

That’s what Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are proposing in a new bill unveiled on Friday. The Public Banking Act, first shared with Vox, wouldn’t create those options by itself, but would foster the creation of public banks across the country by providing them a pathway to getting started, establishing an infrastructure for liquidity and credit facilities for them via the Federal Reserve, and setting up federal guidelines for them to be regulated. Essentially, it would make it easier for public banks to exist, and it would give some of them grant money to get started. While it sounds a little wonky, the basic idea is to make it possible for state and local governments, local businesses, and people to do business with public banks, which theoretically would be more motivated to do public good and invest in their communities than private institutions, which are out for profit. One public bank exists in North Dakota, and there is a growing movement to create more of them across the country. California recently passed a law allowing cities and counties to create and sponsor public banks." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

They’ve done their very best to carry out that despicable mission. That includes waging a war on people with disabilities, demoralizing the agency’s workforce, and delaying President Biden’s stimulus checks. We enthusiastically applaud President Biden’s decision to fire Saul and Black, as well as his choice of Kilolo Kijakazi for Acting Commissioner. Acting Commissioner Kijakazi has a long record of supporting our Social Security system and serving the American people.

But Doocy again revealed his continued voice of reason on a consistently critiqued network over Covid-19 coverage and made clear what the real issues are." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Brian Kilmeade is staying on message for Fox News, ignoring science.

The vaccines are safe. The ICUs are filled with people who were unvaccinated. There are people still testing positive who have been vaccinated, a few we knew that would happen because it is 90% effective. But none of them are going to the hospital. What is happening -- the people who are dying, the people who are filling up our hospitals are unvaccinated and many of them are there because people like Governor Ron Desantis of Florida and other -- all Republican -- politicians are telling them that the vaccines might not be safe, that they shouldn't listen to public health experts like Dr. Fauci. They're selling t-shirts on Desantis' website attacking Dr. Fauci. That is the problem. That is how misinformation gets spread and it's very very dangerous." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
