On the one hand, being on parental leave during the impeachment trial is disorienting since I'm used to following all things Congress. On the other hand, I had lunch at Whole Foods with a laughing baby and sang her ALL the words to "What A Feeling" as it blared on the speakers.

My mom: What do you think of Michael Bloomberg? He's doing this wrong. He got into the race too late. Me: Well, Deval Patrick too. Mom: Who? 😂

WOW. San Juan mayor: "I am going to do what I never thought I would do. I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying.

Trump's Mar-A-Lago winter vacation pushes his taxpayer-funded golf tab past $118 million. That amount is equivalent to 296 years of the $400,000 presidential salary that his supporters often boast he's not taking. via @svdate 

Oh man. Rep. Ted Lieu now playing a tape of Candace Owens, who is sitting right there, saying it would have been fine if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great.
