News Roundup: Richard Trumka dies at 72; Greene once again attempts to provoke violence

In the news today: Top labor leader and AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka has died at age 72. The Florida pandemic surge continues to hold national headlines. Conspiracy crank Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene continues to make violence-stoking statements, this time with a suggestion that southerners use their “Second Amendment rights” against anyone “showing up” at their homes to promote vaccinations. Her behavior continues to be far beneath that which is expected of any member of Congress and, once again, should result in her expulsion.
