Fading empire? Trump businesses hit hard by the pandemic and toxic image
@randikayeCNN reports on dropping revenues among various companies listed on former Pres. Trump's final financial disclosure form amid the Covid-19 pandemic and fallout from the attack on the US Capitol.
“It’s rather amazing that less than 3 weeks after a full-scale insurrection ... how quickly some lawmakers are trying to push it down the memory hole.”
On lawmakers flip-flopping over former Pres. Trump’s role in the Capitol insurrection, CNN’s John Berman is #KeepingThemHonest.
"I'm feeling relaxed. I feel like I've exhaled, I feel like there's a little bit of a lighter bounce in my step," says legendary filmmaker Ken Burns with President Biden now in office.
"I think what we saw yesterday were the signals of adults."
Sen. Mazie Hirono on the ethics complaint filed against Senators Hawley and Cruz for their role in the Capitol riot:
"They both participated in perpetuating the big lie that this election was stolen and that Trump had actually won. That is the big lie, capital 'B,' capital 'L.'"
"I do think it's important that we do it as quickly as we can," says Rep. Jason Crow on Trump's impeachment trial.
"I think justice needs to be brought to the President and those involved, but you know... he's entitled to a defense and to have his attorneys review the evidence."
Pres. Trump's behavior in the waning hours of his presidency is "regrettably " but "not surprising," says former VP Al Gore.
"I'm glad that we are going to have a fresh start and move away from the violation of norms... disrespect to the Constitution and the American people."
"The flags stand right now in silent witness to the the darkness of this long and bitter night but they will still be standing tomorrow at the dawn of something new," says @andersoncooper of the memorial representing more than 400,000 Americans who've perished in this pandemic.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham has abased himself to be close to power, says writer Tom Friedman.
"What happens when they have no power to be close to?" he asks, as Republicans prepare for an era without control of the House, Senate or White House.
"How a 5-year-old might describe what a President does," says @andersoncooper, responding to the White House's description of President Trump's final days in office: "He will work from early in the morning until late in the evening" and "make many calls and have many meetings."
