I wasn't completely decided until today.

Trump only wants to publish a book for the revenue, then (no surprise). Clearly, this is the best possible "spin"/outright lies of the day's events.

Some of it went too far, I think. "Let me put our great first lady on speakerphone". Yeah right, Trump really said that, and Melania really wanted to express her feelings of soft disdain for the insurrectionists to one of Trump's aides. After hanging up, the First Family went to sixteen orphanages and gave every child four PS5's and two Nintendos.

And so courageous for Bill Barr to come out and say the was no fraud 8 months after the election. They're all racing to rewrite history.

Barr did make a statement on December 1st that DoJ had found no evidence of widespread election fraud, apparently at McConnell's private request, but his mischaracterization of the Mueller report and other offenses puts him forever in the red on my ledger. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful he helped(?) democracy hang on by a thread, but he's basically a self-professed autocracy enabler with his interpretations of sweeping executive authority. One of the most radical Catholics this side of a Dan Brown novel.
