In other news, the first shipment of coronavirus vaccines distributed to federal agencies in mid to late December will only cover about 3.2 million people (about 1 percent of the country) according to Reuters.
With early supplies limited, the federal government is allocating doses based on state populations, rather than the proportion of the populations at high risk. That means some states’ health workers will be better protected than others.
Alabama for instance, will receive enough vaccine for around 17% of its healthcare workers, while Illinois could cover only 13%, according to data from state officials.
Meanwhile, over 3,100 died from coronavirus complications yesterday, easily surpassing the record of over 2,800 from the day before.
Finally, Trump's plant at the Department of Justice was reportedly banned from the building after trying to access confidential case files and harassing department employees.
Heidi Stirrup, a key ally of Stephen Miller, President Donald Trump's senior policy advisor, was appointed as the White House liaison at the department this fall.
Stirrup was told to leave the Justice Department building sometime in the past two weeks after officials "learned of her efforts to collect insider information about ongoing cases and the department's work on election fraud," the AP reported, citing the three people.
Stirrup is said to have engaged in other misconduct at the Justice Department, including offering allies top department jobs without White House approval.
In other words, she was harassing employees over something that doesn't exist.
Trumpism is a brain disease.
Have a good weekend.
