I don’t really know what to say about this except you would not want to use these people’s toilets.

[reads teleprompter] well, I would say the COVID-19 was about half good and half bad

In Los Angeles County on Saturday, "officials announced that the daily test positivity rate of less than 1% was the lowest since the pandemic began more than a year ago."

Big fan of @InsiderUnion  normalizing collective bargaining as a healthy part of life at any growing media company. The journalism doesn’t exist without the work you do!

correct me if I’m wrong: some of the world’s most powerful soccer clubs proposed adopting an American-style league system, and everybody on the continent of Europe freaked out simultaneously over how horrible that would be? probably nothing to see here.

what a year this last half hour has been

I imagine all the closures and cancellations give people a sense of ominousness. But it's really an amazing act of social solidarity: We're sacrificing so we can give nurses, doctors and hospitals a fighting chance. Start from there and hopefully we can figure out the rest.

1. My train to the inauguration; 2. My train to the Women's March — or it was supposed to be, but it was too full for me to get on.

I'm just going to shout this. PUERTO RICANS DON'T HAVE WATER AND SO THEY'RE TRYING TO DRINK WATER FROM ***SUPERFUND SITES***

The coronavirus story will also become a health-insurance story in America. This guy went to China, caught the flu, came back, did the responsible thing and reported himself for possible coronavirus — but tested negative and now might have to pay $1,400+.

We’re in one of the worst economic disasters in American history amid a global pandemic, people are revolting against the police, the U.S. president is trying to bring social media companies to heel and has just threatened to shoot looters. What else can we pile on top of this

One of the Women's Marchers' final acts: leaving their protest signs in front of the White House.

Trump administration denies Puerto Rico's request to waive the Jones Act, which it did for Harvey and Irma.

Wow. Big scoop by : The Trump administration created a "secret database of activists, journalists, and social media influencers tied to the migrant caravan and in some cases, placed alerts on their passports."
