The Damage Report host John Iadarola is joined by Brett Erlich, host of TYT’s Happy Half Hour, to break down Friday’s top stories.
Trump considers pardons for a whole roster of terrible people, including himself. The president spreads disproven conspiracy theories about voting machines on Twitter. Rand Paul urges those who have had Covid-19 to, “throw away their masks, go to a restaurant.” Not surprisingly, at least 5 people who were aboard the first cruise ship in months have tested positive for Covid. Militia members gather in DC to engage in violence on behalf of Trump. It’s time to take out the trash! Find out who John, Brett and you (yes, you!) picked as the Garbage Person of the week.

"President Donald Trump is refusing to concede the 2020 election to President-elect Joe Biden, but once Trump moves to the acceptance stage of his defeat, the urgent business of presidential pardons is likely to surge to the top of his checklist before leaving office.
From campaign associates to members of his family — and even possibly himself — Trump could use his expansive pardon power to try to settle legal questions on his way out the door.
Current and former Trump administration officials say there’s been minimal preparation for an expected onslaught of clemencies, as Trump is still pursuing dubious legal challenges to the election. But his Twitter feed over the past three years offers a working list of where the President might turn to wield his pardon power — primarily toward those targeted by former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Perhaps the biggest looming pardon question is whether Trump will consider granting himself a pardon, amid state investigations into his business and finances and the prospect of federal investigators scrutinizing him after he leaves office."
