Kids, kids and referees, she said. I went to a youth soccer tournament the other day. Kids and referees, not mass parents, with masks under their chins, shadowing, cheering in close proximity to others. This is not good. Do not do it. Joe Biden. Has selected Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine. To be his assistant secretary of health, leaving her poised to become the first transgender federal official to be confirmed by the U. S. Senate. Pediatrician and former Pennsylvania physician, General Levine Or perhaps, Levin? I don't know. Was appointed to her current post by Democrat governor, Democratic Governor Tom Wolfe in 2017, making her one of the few transgender people serving in elected or appointed positions nationwide. She won. She won past confirmation by the Republican majority Pennsylvania Senate. So that's interesting Aunt has emerged as the public face of the state's response to the Corona virus pandemic. Dr Levine will bring steady leadership and essential expertise that we need to get people. Through the pandemic, no matter what their zip code, their race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, identity or disability and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond, President elect, Biden said in the state. I feel like he's being really thoughtful about all of his picks. I think he's really trying to Is diverse is possible and at the same time getting people that are the most qualified for the job because this doctor said I was reading a little bit about her extremely accomplished and respected and Look if he's being so conscientious about making sure that a lot of people are representative, where are there any Maga people in there? Any maggot people it is, huh? Oh, believe me, there are maggot people. Everywhere, like termites throughout the various organizations is not going to. He's not going to consciously appoint any maggot people to his administration. Brett Tolman, the former U. S attorney for Utah. Is making headlines by making big bucks lobbying the White House for pardons for his clients, huh? He's made news before. Uh, now he was the U. S attorney for Utah. He was an advocate for women who are victims of violent crimes. He was a crusader for reforming the legal system. More recently, however, Tolman has been advising the Trump Administration on pardons and commutations. And, according to The New York Times, he's been collecting tens of thousands of dollars and possibly more lobbying for clemency for the son of a former Arkansas senator, the founder of a notorious online drug marketplace, Silk Road and also a New York City socialite. Pleaded guilty in a fraud scheme. So he has been making the case for those three different people and others to the Trump Administration for clemency or pardons and and these people are paying him. A good chunk of change to make those Pleased to the Trump administration. I'll Brett, I'm not going to tell you how to make a living, or how not to make a living. Just know that the stain will go with you. That's think is going to stay on. You don't come off in a tomato, wash. Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate will happen. Let's get on with it. What does Mitch McConnell say about the whole thing? He says, Listen, uh When we have this trial in the Senate What You know, it's a vertical. It'll be a little conscience. That's why I will be more. Yeah, I hope so. Because I hope that's exactly what it is. I hope you examine your conscience. Senators. Really? And if you vote guilty if you are Republican who votes guilty It's it will also say. You know, I've been wrong this whole time or it will say I knew I was wrong this whole time, and I didn't care. Yeah. So There you go.
