Newark cop hit a pedestrian on the highway, loaded the dead body in his car, then went home to talk it over with his mother, prosecutors say. Eventually his father -- also a Newark cop -- called 911 to say his son was in an accident.

The exchange between Travis McMichael, who shot and killed Ahmaud Arbery:
“Take a breath.”
“Don’t get blood over yourself”
“Do what you need to do.”
“I can only imagine.”
“Ya got anyone you want us to call for you?”

Ahmaud Arbery's father Marcus Arbery, who cheered in the courtroom after the first guilty verdict in his son's murder trial:
"I don't want to see no daddy watch their kid get lynched and shot down like that ... Today is a good day."

Ahmaud should be with us today.

If you don’t get the #COVID19 vaccine in Singapore, you have to pay for your own hospitalization. But since Singapore 🇸🇬 has free universal healthcare, they’re saying “we are going to treat you like an American—which is the biggest punishment you can give someone” ~@ronnychieng😳

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA): “I don’t know whether to call you professor or comrade.”
Someone off-camera: “Oh my goodness.”
Dr. Saule Omarova, Biden’s comptroller currency pick: “I’m not a communist. I do not subscribe to that ideology. I could not choose where I was born.”
