The Morning Dispatch: As Much Concession As We’re Likely to Get
Happy Wednesday! Quick programming note: Declan is spending all day today trying (and likely failing) to bake a pie. Andrew is celebrating his post-Georgia negative COVID test. Audrey is going to be brining her turkey, Charlotte will be battling the lines at the grocery store, and James can’t stop watching OAN (we never should have given him that assignment).
All that’s to say, this is the last TMD we’ll be publishing this week. We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and look forward to catching you up on all the hijinks that will inevitably occur between now and Monday.
