00:04-04:42 This year has brought political turmoil, murder hornets, and a global pandemic, so it’s no surprise that Friday the 13th and World Kindness Day coincide on the same day in 2020! This marks the second time the 13th day of a month has landed on a Friday this year, the last being back in March.

We previously covered his replacement of his fourth defense secretary, Mark Esper, with loyalist Christopher Miller, but that isn’t the only recent, dramatic leadership change. 12:06-14:14 Joe Biden's transition team announced the teams who will work to prepare the incoming administration, even as Trump fights the election results and declines to give access to the incoming President-elect's team. 14:15-14:46 A Black woman will lead the US Naval Academy's student body for the first time in its history.
