  1. Tweety says:

    President Donald Trump threatened Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) that Republican voters would “never forget” GOP lawmakers who fail to support his effort to contest President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.
    Trump also lobbed a more general attack at Republicans who have disavowed the effort — a group that includes former House Speaker Paul Ryan, who said it is “difficult to conceive of a more anti-democratic and anti-conservative act.” https://www.politico.com/news/2021/01/04/trump-threatens-cotton-electoral-college-certification-454515

    “President Donald Trump on Monday prepared to depart the White House and Washington on Wednesday in dramatic fashion, but in his final days he continued to stay isolated and out of sight.
    He has not held any public events in six days, although aides insist he is hard at work on behalf of the American people, publishing daily on the president’s otherwise empty public schedule that he “will work from early in the morning until late in the evening” and “make many calls and have many meetings.” https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-plans-leave-dramatic-fashion-continues-stay-sight/story?id=75320967
