1 – Biden snaps at reporter for asking about Stacey Abrams snubbing big ‘voting rights’ speech
Fox News reports: President Biden said he was “insulted” by a reporter’s question Tuesday wondering if he felt that way about Stacey Abrams skipping his speech on voting rights on her Georgia turf.
“Any thoughts on Stacey Abrams skipping your speech today, sir? Are you insulted she’s skipping your speech?” a reporter asked at the White House ahead of Biden traveling to Atlanta.
“I’m insulted you asked the question,” Biden said before smiling. “I spoke to Stacey this morning. We have a great relationship. We got our scheduling mixed up. I talked to her at length this morning. We’re all on the same page, and everything’s fine.”
Abrams, who is running again for the Georgia governorship in 2022, has made voting issues a cornerstone of her political platform, so her decision to not attend the address due to a “scheduling conflict” raised some eyebrows.

Former President Donald Trump mocked Biden over Abrams’ absence at his big speech. In a statement, Trump wrote, ““Stacey Abrams helped Biden steal the 2020 Election in Georgia but now she won’t even share a stage with Joe. Stacey knows that Biden actually lost BIG in Georgia, and in the 2020 Presidential Election as a whole, and he’s been so terrible she now wants nothing to do with him. Even the woke, radical left realizes that Joe Biden’s Administration is an embarrassment!”

2 – New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy Vows to Sign Bill Expanding Right to Abortion Until Moment of Birth
Breitbart reports: New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) has vowed to sign a bill passed by the state legislature that will expand a right to abortion at any time during pregnancy, even until the moment of birth.
“A bill to codify a woman’s right to choose into state law and expand access to reproductive health care for all just passed both houses of the Legislature,” Murphy tweeted Monday. “I will sign this bill into law this week. With Roe v. Wade under attack, the need for this bill is more urgent than ever.”

The New Jersey Right to Life said in an analysis of the bill, “Because of the broad wording in this bill and the fact that there are no gestational limits anywhere in the bill, this new statute will allow abortions at any point in pregnancy, even if the baby is viable or full term. This will apply to any individual who is present in the state, including non-residents, as well as those who are incarcerated and minor girls in custody or other government programs controlled by the state.”

3 – 20 Louisiana middle school students face expulsion for making finger guns on TikTok
Fox News reports: More than 20 Louisiana middle school students were suspended and are facing expulsion after participating in a TikTok challenge where they made hand gestures imitating guns.
“I haven’t seen the video, so I myself have not been able to identify my own child. I understand that it was something done on school grounds, I understand all of that. I think there should be some sort of discipline. But I just think this is really harsh,” one unidentified mother told KATC.
More than 20 L.J. Alleman Middle School students were suspended after participating in two videos in December, according to the attorney representing some of the families, Pat Magee.
The videos show the kids making finger guns and using their cellphones to imitate guns in a TikTok challenge for Nardo Wick’s song “Who Want Smoke,” local media reported.
School administrators called parents on Dec. 16 and informed them the students would be cited under discipline code 70, which addresses the crime of violent assault and battery.
Parents are questioning the severity a Tik Tok trend that has over 20 L.J. Alleman students facing expulsion. Tre Francis met with the attorney representing parents and a parent who says ‘the punishment needs to fit the behavior.’ https://t.co/uYd9izj3mz
