"It's nighttime in Donald Trump's America." If @Will_Bunch wrote it, you should read it.
@Will_Bunch 2/ "Worst part. In its unyielding effort to bend environmental rules to the will of its corporate patrons, Trump decided to stop arguing #ClimateChange is a hoax, instead acknowledge catastrophic climate change is so locked in for there is nothing humankind can do about it."
3/ "Team Trump has found a way to turn climate denial into something even worse — climate nihilism, the belief that the party's almost over so tonight Big Pollution might as well party like it's 2099."
4/ "Trip to Texas may take hours or days — the migrant boys and girls were given next to no warning, and moved out in the dead of night so they will not escape."
5/ " United States could not only stop selling the bombs that are destroying Yemen, and stop giving the Saudis the targeting information they need to carry out the airstrikes, but it could then use its clout to force an end to the fighting, or at least a ceasefire. But it won't"
6/ "It's nighttime in Trump's America-- & in Las Vegas, 1000s are lighting candles, holding American flags or weeping as gov reads the names of the 58 innocent people gunned down on Oct. 1, 2017, by madman w high-powered weapons that wouldn't be legal in most of civilized world"
7/ "It's nighttime in Trump's America — but the lights are on at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. In the press office aides are frantically scrubbing transcript of the president's latest press conference— as if that could somehow erase Trump's misogynistic words toward a female journalist"
8/ "From a second-story window comes the soft fluorescent glow of the Fox News Channel and an orange despot watching for the next mention of his name, with nary a thought about the children of Tornillo, or Yemen, or Parkland."
9/9 "Children of darkness will lie awake, listening w unspeakable anxiety for rumble of a bus or whoosh of Saudi jet fighter fresh off Lockheed Martin assembly line or news flash abt another shooting in another classroom.& they will pray that it really is darkest before the dawn"

Our system is too broken to assess the sexual assault claim against Brett #Kavanaugh: slate.com/news-and-polit… via via @DahliaLithwick "Kavanaugh defenders were quick to say that the woman, still unnamed, was a drunk and a liar." <<Trolls are doing this as we speak.
@Dahlialithwick 2/ #Kavanaugh "called the abuser, because he was worried about the abuser’s mental health. Worrying more about the accused judge than the accusers one claims to believe is the system protecting the system. This is why women don’t come forward."
3/ "The problem is that demanding that any one woman bear the full professional and social and emotional cost of dismantling the machinery of men in power propping up other men in power is expecting entirely too much." #MeToo

"...All of those euphemisms for “lies” still mean lies, and if, as Haberman asserts, he really believes them, then she should report that it is also possible that the president is out touch with reality."
2/ "Journalists must work to help the public make sense of this great American dumpster fire, and a part of doing that is centering the conversation around the White House’s conflicting versions of reality."
3/ "Much of Trump’s war on the truth appears to be based in exploiting widespread media illiteracy among the citizenry. Journalism is not about striving to appear fair, but maintaining a rigorous objectivity for the purpose of serving the public."

Nunberg is on with @KatyTurNBC right now.
"Roger Stone is like family to me. I'm not gonna do it!" Nunberg to @KatyTurNBC. "I'm not a fan of Trump... He's right. It's a witch hunt."
"Why should I spend 80 hours going over my emails?" Nunberg to @KatyTurNBC. "Had he not won the primary, Trump would probably have endorsed Hillary Clinton."

👉🏼👉🏼Trump’s Lawyers Want Him to Refuse an Interview in Russia Inquiry via @NYTimes nyti.ms/2EmTm3e
2/ “His lawyers are concerned that the president, who has a history of making false statements and contradicting himself, could be charged with lying to investigators.” FOR GOOD REASON.
3/ “Refusing to sit for an interview opens the possibility that Mr. Mueller will subpoena the president to testify before a grand jury, setting up a court fight that would dramatically escalate the investigation and could be decided by the Supreme Court.”
