In other news, Facebook says they've observed an increase in violent rhetoric and organizing after last week's attempted coup, not a decrease.

The spokeswoman, who asked not to be named for security reasons, said late Tuesday the storming of the U.S. Capitol by armed pro-Trump demonstrators appeared to be a galvanizing event, spawning efforts to organize gatherings across the country for multiple dates around President-elect Joe Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration.

Meanwhile, Operation Warp Speed chief scientific adviser Moncef Slaoui has resigned at the request of the incoming Biden administration. It's not entirely clear why he was asked to resign, but it's probably because he wildly misled the public about vaccine availability and then about the potential for using half the normal dose of a vaccine for the same result.

Finally, Mike Pompeo is still in the running for Trump's chief lickspittle with one week to go.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is suggesting that President Donald Trump should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for promoting Arab-Israeli peace.

Pompeo’s suggestion, made on his official Twitter account, comes as the House is set to vote later Wednesday on impeaching Trump, accusing him of rallying a violent mob of supporters to attack the Capitol last week.

Imagine saying this after Trump tried to overthrow the rest of the government.

Sometimes I don't know if these people really believe this shit or not.
