On 1/6, Goldman estimated final size of the Covid plan would be $750b, once GOP whittled it down. But GOP never seriously engaged. No pressure on Manchin, etc. So Goldman upped its bet to $1.1 trillion. Then on Monday, they upped it again to $1.5 trillion:

"Donald told me on New Year's Day 2013, when I called to wish him Happy New Year, that he'd just trademarked the phrase 'Make America Great Again' and was definitely going to run," Roger Stone (source: )

For skeptics of @elizabethforma ’s claim she was from her teaching job in 1971 for being pregnant, the practice was actually widespread. How do I know? Because my mom was fired from HER teaching job in 1971…for being pregnant, with me. A brief thread-->

TRUMP TO REPORTER: "You know the way it was asked -- I was looking at you!" REPORTER: "Sir, I wasn't here yesterday"
