Are we really doing this, Ben?

(Deep breath.)

Okay, let's go.

Over the past 20 years, only 2-10% of rape accusations are proven to be fake. 1/…
The FBI has put the number of "unfounded" rapes - those determined to be false after investigation - at 8%. 2/…
Since records began in 1989, in the US there have been only 52 cases where men convicted of sexual assault were exonerated because it turned out they were falsely accused. 3/…

Some #TuesdayThoughts. It has been thoroughly frustrating trying to reach these people. They do not respond to reason or evidence and they absolutely will not be swayed until they are ready. Make your peace with that and let's get back to work. #BeAVoter #VoteBlueAndBringAFriend
An anguished question from a Trump supporter: "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?"

The serious answer: Here’s what we really think about Trump supporters the rich, the poor, the malignant & the innocently well-meaning, the ones who think and the ones who don't...
That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought "Fine."

That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, "Okay."

Dear @SenatorCollins - I'll tell you why I waited to report a coworker who touched me inappropriately, and why reports of harassment and assault can have "odd timing". 1/12 #MeToo #Kavanaugh
At an event for a coworker who was leaving the company, I was chatting with a married male coworker. Suddenly his hand was up the back of my blouse, almost touching my bra.

I froze in shock for a second, then backed away, stammering "What are you doing?" 2/12 #TuesdayThoughts
He smiled and said "nothing". I walked away and joined some other coworkers. He stayed away from me after that.

I told my boyfriend about it, but decided not to report to HR for several reasons. 3/12 #RoyMoore

“It has a huge mushroom head… I lay there, annoyed that I was getting fucked by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart... It may have been the least impressive sex I’d ever had..." - @StormyDaniels about Trump's dick.🤣…
For reference: here's the "mushroom character" (Toad) in Mario Kart. 🤣🤣🤣
If anyone doubted that Trump had a tiny, mangled peen, this should put your doubts to rest and give you nightmares forever. 🤣🤣🤣

You're welcome. 😇😇😇 #TuesdayThoughts #TuesdayMotivation

#TuesdayThoughts on #ADHD. Today – ADHD and #Anxiety. Anxiety is a major problem for many kids with #ADHD. Kids with ADHD often seem fearless, but many kids with ADHD struggle with anxiety. THREAD 1/

Holy crap. 🔥

When a POTUS' "closest aides" have to steal papers off the Oval Office desk so the President doesn't get us into a nuclear war, that's when you know it's time for the #25thAmendmentNow. #TuesdayThoughts
"He's an idiot. It's pointless to try to convince him of anything. He's gone off the rails. We're in crazytown," Kelly is quoted as saying at a staff meeting in his office. "I don't even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I've ever had."
Read this.

Seriously. Do it right now.

If you ever wondered what the US Senate would look like if run like the City of Miami, then watch the Kavanaugh hearings.

No documents.

Rushed process.

The Senate should never vote on a #SCOTUS candidate without full vetting.

#Republicans don't want that.

Senator @amyklobuchar: Nobody can review 42,000 records about Brett Kavanaugh in one evening. We got them last night.

For reference: I got 50,000 records from @CityofMiami in public records litigation, only about 5,000 were relevant, and it has taken me 4 months to review it.

Ugh, I've been spelling Kavanaugh wrong all morning.
I broke the first rule of tweeting:
never tweet before my third cup.

"You have said multiple times that your staff has already reviewed the 42k pages of docs produced at 5:41pm yesterday.The docs weren't available until 6AM this morning. How's it possible that your staff concluded its review before the docs were even loaded? Blumenthal to Grassley

Holy shit, the Democrats came out and moved to adjourn the #KavenaughHearing IMMEDIATELY.

I've never been prouder to be a Democrat. Never.
Finally some TEETH on this dog.
The Democrats are united to adjourn the Kavenaugh hearing immediately.
There are cheers in the gallery.
Wow. Wow. Wow.

The #KavanaughSCOTUS hearings start today.

I've seen MANY people express frustration, and trolls posing as progressive far left are bashing Schumer & Senate Dems.

Dems can't stop this confirmation.

Here's why, and what WE need to do. #TuesdayThoughts THREAD 1/6
🙋‍♂️ Why don't Dems just not show up? Then the senate can't vote on the confirmation!

👩‍🏫 There are easy procedural ways around that, esp. after McCain’s replacement is named (will be sooner than later if Dems try no-show). They could slow it down by hours - not weeks. 2/6
🙋‍♀️ Dems gave in too easily! Why didn't they fight back?

👨‍🏫 They did - they filibustered & insisted on roll call votes for some controversial candidates, which passed.

As the minority, there isn't much else they can do. 📰 3/6

Even if Trump was a racist, ( He's not ) If I cared about an issue , I would work with him if he was willing to help me, I would not sit on my A$$ and wait 7 years until someone I liked more came along! That is selfish and self centered AF !

You had a black President for 8 years and he didn't do sh*t for poor inner cities or push for any prison reform. He was to busy giving amnesty to illegals via #DACA and fighting for Transgender restrooms and creating a caliphate in Syria! Get woke !!
My man @kanyewest tried to get Bathhouse Barry to help stop the violence in Chicago and he blew him off !!! Obama had a globalist agenda and he cared more about his religion than black people. See everything he pushed for in middle east . So many blind folks out there.

We need WAY more men in comedy to stand next to us in the #MeToo fight.
We don't need any more rape/assault apologists.
We've got plenty of those.
We don't need you to speak for us or tell us what we mean.
We need you to amplify us and call other men out on their shitty behavior.
BTW: you can take the "in comedy" out of the sentence and it would still be true.
cc: Michael Ian Black, Louis CK

I'm not ready for Louis CK to come back just yet, and I don't want to hear from a bunch of dudes that it's "time to move on".

We'll let you know when it's time.

1. A few thoughts on Trump's dinner in honor of evangelicals, which I'll be discussing with @RickSmithShow later. Key context to consider is that fascism is concerned with defining who belongs to "the nation" or "the people," and who doesn't. Internal enemies (Others) are needed.
2. This dovetails neatly with the way in which fundamentalist believers police who does and does not count as a member of their religious confession. This is critical to understanding the Christian Right's politics of "religious freedom":

3. Indeed, as I have written elsewhere, "Fundamentalism is authoritarianism in microcosm, or on the margins. Fascism is essentially fundamentalism in power." The vast majority of white evangelicals are authoritarian and fundamentalist.…
