TWITTER: White man screaming about “fucking crackers” taking over D.C. on Wednesday is making me cry, too, lady:

JOE.MY.GOD.: The conservative Wall Street Journal wants Trump to resign.

HUFF POST: A Capitol Police officer is reportedly in grave condition, on life support, following Wednesday's insurrection at the Capitol. “Blue lives (kinda-sorta) matter”?

POLITICO: Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley criticized Trump over Wednesday's attempted coup, saying — in a closed-door speech Thursday— that his actions “will be judged harshly by history.”

POLITICO: Pence is expected to attend Biden's inauguration. Oh, joy.

CNN: Trump's own former chief of staff, John Kelly, says he would vote to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of him. (Pence and half the Cabinet must vote yes, then it must be voted on by Congress, and must obtain a supermajority in favor of removal in order to be successful.)

WTOP: Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland was trying to send the National Guard to restore peace at the Capitol Wednesday, and says that House Majority Leader Stony Hoyer was on the phone begging for it — but Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller wouldn't approve it.

NYT: Simon & Schuster dropped Sen. Josh Hawley's (R-Missouri) forthcoming The Tyranny of Big Tech book over his part in fomenting Wednesday's insurrection.

YAHOO! LIFE: A great shot of the young women who saved the electoral college ballot boxers from the insurrectionists.

TOWLEROAD: More on Ashli Babbit, a 14-year military veteran. I think the fact that a QAnon nutbag — or the type of person who could devolve into one — spent 14 years in the U.S. military says a lot about why people mistrust the military. Some great people go into it, but it also attracts a disproportionate number of white supremacist gun nuts.

TWITTER: NYC's invaluable Ali Forney Center has announced the death of one of the people it has worked with in the past, trans woman Alexandria Winchester:

DAILY KOS: Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, a Republican, is deprioritizing undocumented workers at plants that will receive COVID-19 vaccinations. So ... if you're not undocumented, you get a shot. If you are undocumented, you get sick — and spread it around all the more. Brilliant.

GR8ERDAYS: RIP Marion Ramsey of the Police Academy movies, who was 73. Along with her famous work in those goofy movies, she was in the company of Hello, Dolly! with Pearl Bailey, in Eubie! (also on Broadway) and worked with Bette Davis in the ill-fated Miss Moffat, which never made it to Broadway.
