JENNA ELLIS. Surprise! Trump adviser and ‘constitutional law expert’ is a fraud: “Since she graduated law school in 2011, nothing in her record in the courtroom — limited mostly to appearances in state court as a prosecutor or as counsel for clients charged with assault, prostitution, theft and domestic abuse — shows any time spent litigating election law cases. … She has never appeared in federal district or circuit court, where most constitutional matters are considered, according to national databases of federal cases, and does not appear to have played a major role in any cases beyond her criminal and civil work in Colorado.”
UNBOXING OF THE DAY. The mock-up COVID vaccine: “A day after announcing New York is expecting to receive its first shipment of COVID vaccines, Gov. Cuomo demonstrated just how the doses will be delivered and administered across the state. The governor made a joke about Christmas and grinned Thursday as he opened a mock-up box packed with dry ice, vials and trays to show how a soon-to-be approved vaccine from drug giant Pfizer will make its way to the Empire State.”
JUAN WILLIAMS. FOX News host tests positive for coronavirus… “The 66-year-old added that he is experiencing ‘flu-like symptoms,’ including chills and headaches. He added that he was taken from New York to Washington, D.C., where he is staying at a hotel so as not to infect his wife.”
PFIZER. We’re not sure if a vaccinated person can transmit the virus. “This is something that needs to be examined.”
LET’S NOT MAKE THIS A THING. The Blue MAGA hat.
