Via @PostSports: The Kansas City Chiefs waited a half-century between Super Bowl appearances. And they waited for more than three quarters Sunday night at Hard Rock Stadium for quarterback Patrick Mahomes and their dynamic offense to get revved up. It was all worth the wait for the Chiefs and their fans. Mahomes delivered a pair of late touchdown passes as part of a 21-point outburst as Kansas City came back to beat the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20, in a dramatic late turnaround in Super Bowl LIV on a picture-perfect South Florida evening.

Trump’s peace proposal has been embraced by most Israelis, rejected by the Palestinian leadership and dismissed as fatally one-sided by many veteran Middle East negotiators.⁠ ⁠ The plan provides for the possibility of a Palestinian state, but one with limited autonomy on about 70 percent of the West Bank with no rights to an army or airport and its capital not in Jerusalem but in a nearby suburb.⁠ ⁠ The other third of the West Bank, containing more than 135 Jewish settlements that most countries consider illegal, would be ceded to Israel.⁠ ⁠ The emotional weight of Trump’s announcement is perhaps being felt most intensely by these side-by-side antagonists, with despair among Palestinians and a surprise sense of validation for settlers.⁠ ⁠ “I’ve been waiting all these years to hear someone say something we know and believe and live every day,” Israeli settler Eliana Passentin told The Post.⁠ ⁠ “I’m full of frustration,” said Shadi al-Hajar, a Palestinian farmer in a nearby village.⁠ ⁠ Read the full story, click the link in our bio.

The much-anticipated pre-game tribute to late Lakers star Kobe Bryant, which had been kept under wraps all week, opened on Friday with pop star Usher singing “Amazing Grace." The Lakers then aired a video, narrated by Bryant, that traced his entire 20-year career with the Lakers, including footage of his rookie year, championship celebrations, Achilles’ injury and 60-point finale. After a 24.2 second moment of silence for Bryant and the other helicopter crash victims, Lakers forward LeBron James addressed the crowd from center court. James dropped a piece of paper that contained prepared remarks, telling the crowd he planned to speak from the heart. Read more by clicking the link in our bio.

After 1,317 days, three prime ministers, two blown exit dates, dozens of votes in Parliament and years of negotiation, Britain finally left the European Union on Friday. Brexit will barely be felt by average citizens until the end of an 11-month transition period. But Britain’s departure will profoundly change its relationship with Europe and the rest of the world.

Breaking news via @coveringpotus: Six new countries were added to the Trump administrations travel ban Friday — including Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country — in a widely anticipated expansion of the policy that Democrats blasted as “clearly discriminatory” against people from predominantly black and Muslim nations. People from Nigeria, Eritrea, Tanzania, Sudan, Kyrgyzstan and Myanmar will be banned from immigrating to the United States without a visa waiver as of Feb. 22, joining currently banned countries Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, North Korea and certain government officials from Venezuela.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) announced just as the Senate reconvened that she will be voting not to allow new evidence in President Trump’s impeachment case. Her decision makes it all but certain that a vote on more witnesses and documents would fail. The other closely watched Republican senators had already made their votes known — Susan Collins (Maine) and Mitt Romney (Utah) as “yeses” and Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) a “no.” Read more by clicking the link in our bio.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s young golden retriever, Bailey, has become her most popular campaign surrogate in the final days before the Feb. 3 Iowa caucuses. Bailey is so popular in fact, that he has recently had his own photo line at events in Iowa. One of Warren’s sons drove Bailey to Iowa from Boston late last week, a 20-hour trip.
