The @GOP won’t stop this madness. They made their deal and doubled down a dozen times: access Hollywood, Muslim ban, McCain insults, russia, that weird Space Force thing?? That party has abdicated. So we do the job they are unwilling to. We lead. We defend the constitution...
We hold power accountable. And we replace the GOP with workers willing to do the job. Probably immigrants. In the meantime, life for those selling out america must become very uncomfortable
I want a White House reporter during the next briefing to use their question time to play audio of the screaming children kidnapped from their parents
I want no DC restaurant to offer sanctuary to those executing the orders of a heartless, selfish, monstrous president. We must increase the cost of this corruption.
This is what happens when you let a bully have his way his entire life. For 70 years no one said no to donald trump. So of course fucking @SpeakerRyan won’t. Now he’s not just taking out ads calling for the persecution of innocent children. HE IS USING PRESIDENTIAL POWER TO DO IT
The least powerful among us are paying the price for cowardice displayed by the most powerful. Because rich and powerful white people in business and media and politics wouldn’t stand up to Trump, immigrant children are forced to.
And because he was never held accountable he uses his pulpit to infect more with his monstrous methods. So HE is the infestation. He is the virus, spreading disease throughout our culture, encouraging the ugliest among us to proudly come out.
So we all have work to do. If you thought Obama cleaning up after Bush was hard, just brace for the post-Trump gut renovation America will require. It starts now. With all of us. Grab some tools. Let’s get our hands dirty. Let’s stand up to the monsters in our midst.
And all these fools involved in child kidnapping need to be charged, prosecuted, and tried for war crimes. But while we await that legal fate, let’s just take their damn kids.
The worst events in modern human history were not inevitable; they happened because there was not a mass movement to stop them. We the people are not doomed to repeat history; rise up to #FreeOurFuture #AbolishIce

Basically, Donald Trump benefitted from welfare. The kind American culture celebrates instead of vilifying and criminalizing. Our entire system is upside down.…
The more I think about it. The more it works. Donald Trump is a welfare recipient. He got massive amounts of cash subsidies from his father, but that was only possible by cheating the government. So essentially Trump lived off of taxpayer money his entire life.
It’s so easy for Americans to believe the myth of success when it comes to a heterosexual white man. Trump was BELIEVABLE because of the gender and race he inherited. The press believed it. Entertainment producers believed it. Voters believed it. White supremacy is believable

Taps twitter mic. Thread comin' #KavanaughHearings
The Daily today helped me understand that the GOP wants to see #KavanaughHearings as a trial so the standard of “beyond a reasonable doubt” will assure he walks. But Democrats (and I) see this as a job interview, not a trial.
This is about all we know of this job candidate versus how he has presented himself. There’s a pattern: “Keg Club” days, Yale heavy drinking and belligerence, THREE named accusers, yearbook references. #KavanaughHearings

Dear @marcorubio, “total lunacy” is a US senator using his voice to criticize a movie he hasn’t seen while remaining silent over visible violations of the Constitution by the executive branch.
Senator @marcorubio’s failure to speak out against child kidnapping, emoluments violations, and attacks on law enforcement by this president is a disservice at a time when our people need reminders that we are a nation of laws that apply to all.
The American people pay for @marcorubio’s salary, for him to do a job which is to act like a member of a co-equal branch of government, not sit by while the Executive undermines our national security and claims that crimes aren’t crimes when they involve his associates.

Russia. Turkey. Hungary. She would be an asset to any authoritarian regime really.
@RadioFreeTom also corporations. Big evil ones that profit off of jailing kidnapped children for example, or manufacturing weapons and promoting them via compromised political organizations. Or poison makers. She would do really well at a poison manufacturer.
If there’s an organization that euthanizes healthy puppies who bring joy to hospitalized orphans, I feel like Sarah Sanders could run their comms

We must step up and keep up the fight to Stop Kavanaugh from joining the Supreme Court. Trump may be bad at keeping his marital and financial commitments but he's great at keeping his worst political commitments. #BlockBrett…
There is reason to believe we can win in stopping Kavanaugh from joining the Supreme Court. As @JeffreyToobin writes: “fighting Supreme Court nominees, even against formidable odds, can succeed—and produce a better Court than anyone might have expected.”…

iPhone X cellular data just stopped working. Removed and reinserted SIM. Powered off and on. Did soft reset. Reset network settings. Called carrier. Still down. Is full device reset recourse?
Update: I can get to but that’s it. I think that’s the future they want. “Why would you need to go anywhere else??” I hate conglomerates.
Just called @ATT again. Got automated message saying they are experiencing network outage in my area (direct opposite of what rep told me 90 mins ago), and they will text me when it’s resolved
