The Johns Hopkins University reports 75,375 new Covid-19 cases in the U.S. yesterday and 956 Americans were reported to have died from the virus yesterday. Despite the truly impressive number of vaccinations, the pandemic continues. So stay safe, wear a mask and get vaccinated.

In the @CNNSitRoom  tonight we remembered two wonderful people who died from the coronavirus. May They Rest In Peace and May Their Memories Be A Blessing.

My good friend and colleague @BrookeBCNN  is wrapping up her wonderful years at t @CNNday . We will miss her but we wish her only the very best as she embarks on her next adventure. And congrats to her for her timely new book “Huddle: How Women Unlock Their Collective Power.”

In the @CNNSitRoom  tonight, we sent our love and deepest condolences to our friend and colleague @Rene_MarshCNN  and her husband Kedric Payne after their wonderful two-year old son Blake lost his battle with brain cancer. May He Rest In Peace and May His Memory Be A Blessing.

What a really special 1-0 win for my Washington@Nationals  in the bottom of the ninth. Nice! We needed it.

This Just In. All 50 States and DC have now officially certified their presidential election results. The @JoeBiden  national popular vote lead over @realDonaldTrump  is more than 7 million votes - 51.3% to 46.8%. Biden has 306 Electoral Votes; Trump has 232. (270 needed to win.)

Remember when @realDonaldTrump  emerged from 4 days in hospital to say: “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.” Tell that to 55,191 Americans who came down w/ it yesterday & the families of 961 Americans who died from Covid yesterday. Our deepest condolences.

Check out this exchange I had with then private citizen @realDonaldTrump  on Oct. 15, 2008. We spoke about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and he then offered his thoughts about impeachment.

Just to recap. In the national vote, @Joe Biden won 81,283,098 votes (51.3%) and @realDonaldTrump  won 74,222,958 votes (46.8%). All 50 States & DC certified the results. On Dec. 14, the Electoral College affirmed Biden won 306 Electoral Votes to Trump’s 232. (270 needed to win)

The U.S. Treasury Department says that the national debt has increased by $2 trillion ($2,000,000,000,000) since President Trump took office on Jan. 20, 2017. That's with Republicans in control of the House and Senate. The national debt is now almost $22 trillion.

At a Republican presidential debate in 2016, I asked : "If you don't get an actual check from the Mexican government for $8 billion or $10 billion or $12 billion, whatever it will cost, how are you going to make them pay for the wall?" Here's his response:

Remember when @realDonaldTrump  warned during the campaign that your 401k's and stocks would "disintegrate and disappear" if @JoeBiden  won? Well, the Dow Jones industrial average just reached a record high of 30,000 points. And it's 3 weeks since Election Day.

This FBI warning is very disturbing, An internal FBI bulletin obtained by @CNN  says: "Armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the US Capitol from 17 January through 20 January.” Details in @CNNSitRoomSitRoom  5-7PM ET
