    “Illinois casts all 20 electoral votes for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris;
    Mayor Lori Lightfoot wielded gavel as electors cast ballots Secretary of State Jesse White, who officially oversees the quadrennial session, passed the gavel to Mayor Lori Lightfoot, an elector.” (Chicago Sun Times)

    So yesterday the Covid vaccine rollout began and state electors made our Joe and Kamala official.
    “At the center of both was Mayor Lori Lightfoot.” (Hayes)

    • December 15, 2020 at 3:15 pm

      Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot:
      “I felt humbled and honored to be a part of it. My fellow electors nominating me to chair the proceedings. And it’s something that I’m going to remember for my whole life. So it felt like a very important part of our constitutional obligations and I was very grateful to be a part of it.”

      • December 15, 2020 at 3:21 pm

        Mayor Lightfoot:
        “I really think there are 3 groups.
        There are the people who are going to take the vaccine no matter what. Those folks we’ve got to make sure that we reach them early on in this process. Then there we’ve got people on the other extreme, who no matter what we do are not going to take the vaccine. But I think the vast majority of people are somewhere in the middle. They need information. They need us to be able to reach out to them and convince them that taking the vaccine is in their best interests, the best interest of their family and loved ones. And that’s the work that lies ahead of us. And then I think the other big challenge is making sure that the federal process keeps working to bring more of the vaccine providers online safely. And then making sure that we’ve got the infrastructure to get those massive doses to the states and to the cities.”

    • December 15, 2020 at 3:16 pm

      Hayes: “Your city has been hit very hard by Covid in this wave.
      And you now have a vaccine rollout on your hands. You’ve also seen a post-peak it appears, after stricter measures were introduced in the city we’re seeing new cases come down. First of all where are you in battling the epidemic in the city of Chicago?”
      Mayor Lightfoot:
      “Well I think you hit the nail on the head in the graphic you just showed.
      It really shows that we definitely saw a pretty substantial surge in October and November. We saw a little bit of an uptick post-Thanksgiving. But in the last couple of days, started to see those numbers plateau and start to come down, which is good news. The reality is we’ve got great news about the vaccine, but as someone said and it’s exactly right, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel but we’re still in the tunnel.”

    • December 15, 2020 at 3:17 pm

      Hayes: “Chicago is a city like many American cities with huge disparities.
      In the city of Chicago they are reinforced by huge geographical disparities, boundaries. And I wonder how you’re thinking about getting vaccines to people that need them across lines of race and class and city geography.”
      Mayor Lightfoot:
      “Well you know this city and you’ve hit the nail on the head. The logistics we can manage and we’ve been preparing for that for months now. And I’m happy to say Chris, that we’ve got our first set of vaccines and we’re going to start that process tomorrow. But the historic issues around healthcare disparities, healthcare delivery, are real and very much present in our city. In our African American communities the health care disparities that have led to life expectancy gaps and the early death are real. And we’ve got a tremendous messaging challenge to reach people and convince them that the vaccine is safe. And that they should take the vaccine. And then we’ve got a very diverse immigrant community. People who hail from other parts of the world with this great skepticism about Government and mistrust. So we’ve got to overcome those hurdles as well. That’s why it’s so important for us, as we have been doing, to enlist trusted community partners to really be the messengers around the vaccine, why it’s important. And to make sure as appropriate we get those folks vaccinated as well, so they can really carry the gospel to people in the neighborhoods, to really disabuse a lot of the myths and apprehensions out there.
      And that’s precisely what we’re working on doing.”

    • December 15, 2020 at 3:19 pm

      Hayes: “Does the city have the financial resources that you need for vaccine distribution?”
      Mayor Lightfoot:
      “No. We’re able to handle this initial tranche.
      But like many cities across the country, we will be in a very difficult circumstance if the Federal Government doesn’t stand up and provide additional support to build up the infrastructure and to make sure that we’ve got the resources we need to really spread out the vaccine across our geography. To make sure that there’s no cost, that we’re reaching people where they are, which is going to be really important. We’ve got to have a decentralized process for distribution of the vaccine in order to make sure that we maximize the number of opportunities to get people vaccinated. But we need Federal Government support, there’s no question about that.”

    • December 15, 2020 at 3:20 pm

      Hayes: “What is your benchmark for how you’re thinking about say, the next 3 months? In terms of both battling the pandemic in the short term, keeping people safe, and getting the vaccine out?”
      Mayor Lightfoot:
      “Well number one…until we see widespread distribution of the vaccine which is going to be over many months, that we’ve got to keep practicing the public health guidance that we know, which is social distancing, limiting the number of people that come into contact with. And of course wearing masks and face covering even in our homes. That’s going to be critically important. That’s why I keep saying we see the light at the end of the tunnel, but we’re not out of the tunnel yet. We’ve also got to make sure that we keep spreading the word about why the vaccine matters.”

      tRump used the Mar-a-Lago address as his residence to vote in Florida. There are questions there as to whether he met the requirements to establish residency, and thus whether him voting there was even legal.

    Trump changed his official residence to Mar-a-Lago a year ago. Since he lost the election he’s reportedly begun renovations there. He seems intent on establishing some kind of homestead there, both so it doesn’t end up being seized from him, and so he can try to convince the judge in his inevitable New York criminal trial to give him house arrest in Florida. But now there’s a problem with all of this.

    Because Trump took tax breaks on Mar-a-Lago from the town of Palm Beach, it’s technically classified as a business, and not a residence. Trump isn’t legally allowed to live there full-time. In fact he arguably committed voter fraud when he listed Mar-a-Lago as his home address, because it’s not legally a residence.

    Mar-a-Lago’s neighbors are up in arms about the prospect of Donald Trump using it as a full time residence, and because he’s not allowed to do that, they’re pushing the issue with the city. Now that he’s no longer going to be president, the city is probably less likely to cower to him. If Trump gets banned from residing at Mar-a-Lago, it could tank his entire strategy for weathering the financial crisis and criminal charges that are about to hit him.

    • December 16, 2020 at 9:11 am

      Palm Beach residents sent a demand letter to local officials and the U.S. Secret Service arguing that Trump had given up his right to live at Mar-A-Lago when he agreed to turn his private residence into a private club, and the town code enforcement board could prohibit him from living there.

      “Well, he may not imagine it, but there are quite a few neighbors who are up in arms about the fact that he’s returning, and not just because of his politics,” Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “He’s had a long history of ticking off his neighbors.”

      “There’s a lot of distrust in this community about Donald Trump, because he has sued the town of Palm Beach when it tried to block him from dividing this property to residences,” Leonnig said. “I’d say it’s also important that Donald Trump’s organization and the club have not so far consistently complied with the agreement that we’re talking about.

    • December 16, 2020 at 9:12 am

      For every single year Donald Trump is supposed to report how he’s complying with that non-residency requirement, by explaining where members live, explaining that they haven’t stayed longer than seven days consecutively. For four of the 20 years he hasn’t reported it.”

      “Another important thing [is] he has stayed at that club and visited it 30 times during his presidency, so he’s already flouted that law pretty clearly, and there are a lot of neighbor there’s who say just on its face, they can’t trust Donald Trump to comply, and they want the town of Palm Beach to force the president to do that,” Leonnig added.

      The two most contentious items — funding for state and local governments and a liability shield for businesses — have been left out of the agreement. The state and local funding was a priority for Pelosi, Schumer and other Democrats. This emerging compromise does not include that pot of money as originally envisioned but Democratic negotiators say they have secured other aid to states in the bill. Republicans have vowed to fight for a liability shield and Democrats for more state and local aid next year.

    smh. this is ridiculous.

  79. December 16, 2020 at 9:16 am

    The big picture: Biden’s team is debating the political upside of an across-the-aisle pick, and it’s still very possible the president-elect will settle on an all-Democratic Cabinet, according to people familiar with the matter.

    For Commerce, he also could select a mostly apolitical CEO, like former Xerox CEO Ursula Burns, as a neutral way to reach out to the business community. The Commerce secretary is considered an administration’s ambassador to the business world.

    Why it matters: While Biden again promised Monday night to be a “president for all Americans,” his team hasn’t decided on a strategy to convince some of the 74 million Trump voters he will address their issues.

    Democratic and progressive criticism of picking a Republican centers on the changing nature of the GOP, which has fully embraced President Trump — even during his election challenges.

    Some possible Republican picks like Whitman, the former Hewlett Packard CEO, are considered RINOs, or traitors, by the new Republican base. She endorsed Biden.

    Aside from short-term favorable media coverage, some Biden confidants are unconvinced there is a long-term benefit from selecting a Republican.

    President-elect Joe Biden:
    Campaigned with Georgia U.S. Senate candidates Reverend Rafael Warnock and Jon Ossoff
    at a drive-in rally in Atlanta yesterday. Stacey Abrams, and Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms also gave remarks.

  84. December 16, 2020 at 12:30 pm

    President-elect Biden:
    “But we’ve got a lot of work to do, and I plan to get to work right away doing it.
    I need two senators from this state, I want to get something done. Not two senators who are just going to get in the way, because look, getting nothing done just hurts Georgia. Look at what’s happening right now in the Congress, the United States Senate should have passed the coronavirus and [inaudible 00:50:31] relief package months ago. People are hurting, millions out of work, small businesses closing. People are struggling to pay their rent, worried that after Christmas they’ll be thrown out before New Year’s. Concerned about paying their mortgage, over 10 million. Putting food on the table has become a Herculean task for so many. And what’s the United States Senate doing? Nothing. People need help and they need it right now. States like Georgia need help to keep firefighters, cops, first responders, educators on the job. We needed immediate funding for testing and vaccine distribution, we need to get money to people’s pockets right away.”

    • December 16, 2020 at 12:32 pm

      President-elect Biden:
      “Look, don’t get me wrong, I hope Congress passes a package right away,
      but it should support firefighters, it should, educators, first responders. It should also support the testing and vaccinations we need. It should deliver direct cash payments to people right away when they badly needed to stay on top. The two Republican senators are not supporting that kind of package. Both Jon and Raphael do. There’s so much more we can get done, on COVID, on revitalizing our economy, on healthcare, on voting rights, on criminal justice, racial justice, on climate change, we can get so much done. So much that can make the lives of people of Georgia and the whole country so much better.
      And we need senators who are willing to do it for God’s sake.”

    • December 16, 2020 at 12:35 pm

      President-elect Biden:
      “So let me hear you, are you ready to vote for the two senators that are doers and not roadblocks? Are we ready to vote for two senators who will fight for progress, and not just in the way of progress?
      Are you ready to vote for two senators who know how to say yes, not just the word, no.”

      “…It’s starting today, as I said, you can vote early. Go to iwillvote.com/ga to find your polling location.
      Tell your friends, your family, just like you did in November. Turn out the vote, so it’s not even close. Don’t give them an excuse, don’t let them take away your power. Vote for both Jon and Raphael and remember the final words left to us by Congressman, my dear friend, an American hero, John Lewis, remember what John said? He said, “The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change you have in a democratic society and you must use it because it’s not guaranteed, you can lose it.” So use it.”
