And a 69 million settlement. Forget Me 2. Thats the worst thing I've heard a professional anchor say and try to back it up.

I don't think she should have been fired but the USA come on. It's almost hilarious how she said Blackface is ok. Is She out of her fucking mind!

This system is so fucked up. We're in a weird place where the victims are bad and get punishment, Where as the Assaulter can just disappear or become President.

She got fired because of her ratings. If she was doing well she would’ve apologized (like she did), NBC would’ve issued a statement and then would’ve tried to sweep it under the rug. Instead, she was doing something like 18% worse in her hour of the Today Show (despite getting a slight uptick when she decided to capitalize on #metoo stories) whereas Al Roker and Tamron Hall were getting better ratings at a much cheaper cost. On top of her massive salary, they built an entire new set for her while Hall and Roker just used a part of the already established Today Show set.

Her show was probably going to be cancelled in six months anyways, but this gave them a nice excuse to speed up the process.

That sounds more likely, because I watched that part and she didn't say anything that warranted the shit storm. It's another case of overly sensitive, fragile, lazy lefty millennials with too much time on their hands and not enough real problems left in the world to devote some time to.

I think one of the biggest upsets was in Oklahoma of all places. Steve Russell got upset by Horn who ill say actually seems reasonable to me and isn’t one of them crazy democrats quoting McCaskill.

The Senate has held that’s fine. Just bring me Ginsburg or Breyer heck replace THOMAS with someone younger . Let’s do this .

I feel pretty good about last night. Some of the results were a bit disheartening (mostly Florida, and the voter suppression issues in Georgia are appalling), but the Senate changing power was never happening. Democrats having the House back is a much needed check on Trump. And I feel VERY good about how Virginia turned out in general, between Tim Kaine crushing Corey Stewart, and Jennifer Wexton taking out Barbara Comstock and Abigail Spanberger doing the same to Dave Brat.

I would really like if the new Democratic-led House could work with Trump and co. on issues like infrastructure.

Why must it always be Florida... it's the most frustrating of states every single election. 1.) The polls always underestimate Republican turnout. 2.) The early results are always encouraging for the Dems since Miami-Dade is slow as hell at counting and is suppose to "cement" the Dems victory when it does come in. 3.) But then when Miami-Dade finally starts reporting 3+ hours after polls are closed, it's never quite able to push the Dems over the edge... It's the same thing every election.

Oh, and Trump fires Sessions the day after the election... Couldn't he have waited a couple more days, or even a week?

Wait for what?

Whether he was fired then, 2 weeks, 2 months, 6 months would have made no difference so what are you seeking out of him waiting to fire someone he's been patiently waiting to fire since he recused himself over nothing.

The news was diluted by all the election politics. That's how they wanted it.

They have made AG and the Justice Department a political tool for the president.

Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp presided over the governor election he himself was running in. He purged over tens of thousands of voter registrations for failing the "exact match" test before the election. When the tight race in the state of Georgia started getting national spotlight, he offered to resign as SoS two days after the election.

The results are generally good for Dems, especially considering they have neither a leader, a unifying platform, nor a megaphone on the national level.

They regain grounds in Midwestern states Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. They are competitive in traditionally red states Georgia, Kansas, and Texas.

Beto O'Rourke lost by only 1.6% in Texas! The results should be closely analyzed for future elections. Stacey Abrams is also close in Georgia. Lucy McBath won the Ossoff seat, ending the four-decade-long Republican control in GA-06. Laura Kelly won the governor race in Kansas. The lesson of the story is to recruit good proactive statewide candidates and make every district competitive.

Sinema is now ahead of McSalley in Arizona as well, by 8,859 votes (up from her lead of 2,106 a few hours ago), after being down by 17,000 or so after Tuesday. Here's hoping she flips that seat (Flake's) when this race settles. EDIT: Sinema netted 751 more literally a couple minutes ago, and is up by 9,610.

Nelson also now trails Scott by 15,597 as of an hour ago, after trailing by 35,000 or so yesterday. This race was already close enough to trigger an automatic recount, but the closer that gap closes before then, the better.

And Gillium may have conceded Florida too early. He's now within the 0.5% automatic recount margin, but making up the current 36,000 votes he needs is a lot more challenging than the battle Nelson faces.

It seems like a good possibility Sinema can pull it off in Arizona, and Florida is such a clusterf that Nelson could too if the recount changes things.

Even if recounts/runoffs happen, unfortunately I don't see Gillum or Abrams being able to make up their differences.

I would tend to agree with this. most of the vote left is in Sinemas home county. Florida, jesus I saw the ballot they used in broward county. what a mess. Georgia well thats suspect, if Abrams cannot force a run off she is done.

Sinema is up by 20,837 votes after this evening's update, a full percentage point now. Unless something abnormal happens, this race is looking good. :)

Nelson continues to close the gap on Scott, down 14,852 votes now (netting 745 since yesterday). But Florida is a mess, again.
