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/

Women to Bob Corker re: Kavanaugh: "What am I supposed to tell my daughters and granddaughters"

When he woudn't answer the question, she said, "November is coming."

Bob Corker laughed and said, "yeah, but I'm not on the ballot."

This is what we're up against.
#MondayMotivation I sure hope @BobCorker doesn't intend on running for president anytime soon. #mondayMotivation

"Judge Kavanaugh is highly qualified, I'm glad Dr. Ford was heard".

Looks like a hostage video with Trump standing just off camera, feeding her lines at gunpoint.

Labor market slowed substantially in Sept.

134,000 added jobs indicating worker shortages and U.S. trade skirmishes are cutting hiring.

Who could have predicted that trade embargoes would be bad for the workers who benefit from free trade?

usatoday.com/story/money/20… #jobsreport Look, the problem isn't the unemployment rate.

The problem is that when the Great Recession hit, millions of good paying jobs disappeared.

The economy is bouncing back, but those good paying jobs have been replaced by low paying jobs. #jobsreport

If you haven't laughed yet today, here's a video of President Trump walking up the stairs to Air Force One with toilet paper stuck to his shoe. While this isn't grounds for the #25thAmendment, it does fit the pattern of Trump just being a fucking idiot.
@ManInTheHoody can you confirm, CGI or shit related stickiness? and can you put this to music, please?

"It surprised me a lot to hear him say that he never blacked out...yeah, very drunk." - James Roach, one of Kavanaugh's college roommates, who was not interviewed by the FBI. #ThursdayThoughts #NoKavanaugh Brett Kavanaugh’s former college classmate Chad Ludington “unequivocally” says that Kavanaugh “has not told the truth” in denying the possibility that he blacked out from drinking: “I never saw him passed out but I saw him quite drunk” #Thursdaythoughts

“Crooked Hillary wants to increase these immigration numbers very, very substantially. She’s no friend of women. And she’s no friend of L.G.B.T. Americans. No friend, believe me.” - Trump, the best friend of the gays, believe me. #NostraDumbAss strikes again!
There's a Trump tweet for everything, man.

Men, we hear you.

Several men have expressed concern that they might be falsely accused of rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct going forward due to the #MeToo movement. I thought I would share these helpful tips... 1. Stay alert and aware at all times. If you are at a party with a woman who you think will falsely accuse you of sexual assault, limit your alcohol consumption.

She is free to drink, but your impaired judgment is not an excuse for her false accusations.

And they wonder why we march.

Trump: She's shocked that I picked her.

@CeciliaVega: I'm not, thank you Mr. President.

Trump: That's OK, I know you're not thinking, you never do.

@CeciliaVega I'm sorry?

Trump: No, go ahead.

🙄🙄🙄

Trump says he knows a D senator with a drinking problem who is aggressive. "I've seen that person in very bad situations. Somewhat compromised." Then he says "whatever the Senators want is okay with me."

This is some gangster level blackmail shit, y'all.

Kellyanne Conway: ‘I’m a Victim of Sexual Assault,’ But Slams FBI Probe of Kavanaugh #SundayMorning #SundayMotivation
thebea.st/2R96fRU?source… Jake Tapper: As a survivor of this, does that not make you think, when you hear somebody like Professor Ford, does that not make you think these women need to be heard?

Kellanne Conway: They should all be heard. And they should be heard in courts of law.

Subtext: Trump is ready to cut Kavanaugh loose. "Limited in scope” has been defined to mean limited to allegations by the three named victims. Those were the terms the Democrats agreed to when the "gentleman/woman's" deal was struck.

Trump just started giving his 4th press conference as president.

So far, he's just reiterating a bunch of shit he said yesterday.

He keeps slurring the word "economy", so you know he's been into Dr. Happy's Bag o' Benzos this afternoon.

LORDY, I hope there are tapes!

Rosenstein discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to oust Trump in the days after Comey was fired in May 2017 and also discussed wearing a wire to secretly record his conversations with Trump.

He was supposed to be deported on 9/11. Due to protests, that date has been moved to 9/21.

We only have 5 days to make sure this man isn't sent to certain death.
