Joe Biden picks Representative Deb Haaland to be Secretary of the Interior. Tucker Carlson begins his misinformation campaign against the vaccine. Researchers in London prove the obvious. It’s time to take out the trash! Find out who John, Brett and you (yes, you!) picked as the Garbage Person of the week.

"After opposing another round of stimulus checks for months in the face of deteriorating economic conditions and widespread suffering, Republican congressional leaders have finally agreed to include direct payments in a coronavirus relief package that could be approved by the end of the week.

During a private GOP conference call Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) provided a straightforward and revealing reason for the sudden change of heart: "Kelly and David are getting hammered."

McConnell was, of course, referring to Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, the Georgia incumbents now facing off against Democratic challengers Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in runoff elections that conclude on January 5 and will determine control of the Senate.”
