1. Can I ask everyone a favor? People are acting like the #TrumpShutdown is the result of incompetence, and blaming others for letting things come to this pass. Are they not seeing that this is *deliberate*? This whole year has been about breaking things down.
2. Just think about what they have broken down. Codes preventing corruption. Codes of respectful speech. Codes of treating women and minorities. Codes of speaking of foreign nations. Codes of all our traditional American values.
3. Codes of environmental protection. Codes of how we treat the sick and the elderly. Codes of how we speak of people with disabilities. Codes of how we deal with scientific research. Codes of how we separate truth from blatant lies.
4. All the basic stuff people used to agree on, from funding schools and infrastructure, to keeping kids from getting sick, to preserving our international alliances, has suddenly become “controversial.” This is not an accident.
5. The current administration and all its enablers hate our government and the values that have allowed our country to flourish throughout the generations. *Destroying the government is the core of Trumpism.* Why is this hard to see?
6. So please, let’s stop acting like this is an accident. It’s a deliberate instrument to sow chaos in our nation. We are fighting back and we need your help. If you believe in the American values that made our nation great, I’d appreciate your support.…

If you kind of pretty much already knew he's lying, this piece shows you why there's no doubt whatsoever he's lying.…
He treated the public like we were idiots, like we wouldn’t notice as he pretended he was ralphing during Beach Week from too many jalapeños, as he feigned ignorance about sex slang, as he misread his own meticulously-kept 1982 summer calendar ...
... as he replied to questions about his drinking habits by talking about church, as he suggested there are no alcoholics at Yale, as he denied knowing who “Bart O’Kavanaugh” could possibly be based on, as he declared things refuted that weren’t actually refuted ...

1. So many of us have been looking on with horror as a drama unprecedented since the days of Japanese internment has been unfolding in our nation. I’ve put together some ways we can stand up for American values. #FamiliesBelongTogether

1. Remember that Onion headline that gets retweeted -- more angrily and more ironically -- every time another bunch of people get massacred?…
2. Remember how, every damn time this happens, we’re told it’s “too soon” to speak up, and to stick to “thoughts and prayers”?…
3. Yesterday, a shooting happened on Houston’s doorstep, at Santa Fe High School.…

1. Lots of people have commented on this picture from Barbara Bush's funeral in Houston -- saying that it's a reminder of a time when politics was less partisan.
2. The fact is, politics has always been partisan. Both parties have an interest in highlighting divisions, and so does the media: check out this brutally honest, head-bangingly infuriating piece about how the media treated Hillary Clinton.…
3. It's easy to forget, among all these televised clashes, that the majority of Americans agree on the majority of issues -- and the majority sides with common-sense progressive stances.

1. Why do I support Medicare for All and other forms of single-payer? Because universal health care is the next step toward a truly equal America.

2. Republicans and Democrats agree that our system is fundamentally broken. 71% of Americans agree that our system is “in a state of crisis” or “has major problems”…
3. The question isn’t whether there’s anything to fix but: what the hell has Washington been doing? Well, folks like @CongCulberson are trying to make things worse.…

1. During the March for Our Lives on Saturday, my 8-yr-old son Leo and I were walking arm in arm down Travis. “Look, Mommy!” He excitedly pointed at the poster in front of us: SCHOOLS ARE FOR LEARNING, NOT LOCKDOWNS. “We just had another lockdown yesterday!”
2. “You did?” I said, coming to a halt. My husband and I talk about gun violence whenever there is a news story about a mass shooting, which happens all too frequently—but my son has never demonstrated any interest in the topic.…
3. “When I was a kid, we only had fire drills,” I said sadly.

“Oh, we have those too, but not as much,” my son said in his matter-of-fact, eight-year-old-boy way. “A lockdown is the opposite of a fire drill. In fire drills, we all go outside.”…
