Shonda Rhimes’ show Scandal had seemingly incredible events occur in the fictional Fitzgerald Grant’s Presidency. Affairs, dead marriages, stolen elections, influential donors with elitist agendas that helped them and their friends get richer, hypocrisy, a president out of control….it’s almost like Trump saw how unbelievable it was and was like “hold my beer.”
To be crystal clear, unlike in Scandal, the 2020 election wasn’t stolen.
And finally, in one week, President Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris will be inaugurated and become the next leaders of the United States. After the events of Jan 6, it’ll take all of us to make sure that it’s a safe event, and that President Joe Biden and Vice President Harris never have to question their security.
Airbnb is doing its part – it announced in a statement today that they’re not going to have airbnbs available during the inauguration. They said:
“in response to various local, state and federal officials asking people not to travel to Washington, D.C., we are announcing that Airbnb will cancel reservations in the Washington, D.C. metro area during the Inauguration week. Additionally, we will prevent any new reservations in the Washington, D.C. area from being booked during that time by blocking such reservations. “
More of this please – United, American, Delta, Southwest, Alaska – everyone else, can you please step up and ban them from your airlines. Pre-emptive thanks! You can also read the full Airbnb statement.
