On the News Today: Senator Joe Manchin, the slowest learner in the Senate, appears to believe that Senate Republican minority leader Mitch McConnell has learned his lesson and that there should be another vote on the commission on Jan. 6. Because unicorns. Former Vice President Mike Pence agrees that he and Donald Trump will never be "on par with all of this insurgent mob that tried to hang him up." In other news, Pence doesn't believe there is systemic racism, so we already know how tightly he controls reality. Republican Governor Ron DeSantis decided that the upcoming anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub massacre would be a good time to fool the survivors along with Florida LGBTQ youth. And the endless attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci go on unabated.
