Heh. As Twitchy reported earlier, the other totally not shocking, “breaking” news this morning was Nancy Pelosi’s declaration that she’ll stay on as House minority leader. Gobsmacked … said no one.
And, Senator-elect King will caucus with the Democrats. How many reporters wasted their mornings so far?—

Seriously. Twitter users of all stripes quickly mock the “breaking” news.
I join everyone in utter shock "independent" Angus King will caucus with the Democrats, along with "independent" Bernie Sanders.—
