I know not who wrote the #NYTimesOpEd and frankly I don't care.
The situation currently is that the house is burning and we are more focused on who set the fire than trying to save the house.
My tweets seem like rambling lately, and to my friends I apologize. /1
It is my inner feelings, my emotions, my anger, and my frustrations that I share.
We can focus on finding out who to blame for the fuck up in the 2016 elections, or we can focus on how to limit the damage to our democracy to 2 years. /2

Tonight I see the rule of law dying, the principles our country was founded on are being ignored, due process is being trampled upon.
I care very much about women's rights, LGBTQ rights, healthcare as we know it, and the possibility getting justice against an #IllegitimatePOTUS
The respect that I once had for elected officials has faded, the respect that I had for fellow Americans who were on the other side of the aisle disappears
No I don't hate them, I am disgusted by the fact that we have forgotten that while we may have differences we are Americans

I apologize for the rant. I wake up thinking this must be just some running joke. I mean seriously the people that voted for #LiarInChief are the people he has hurt them the most, yet they continue to support him.
Facts in tweets that follow.
Here are the farmers. Well I think we can agree farmers across the country are hurting cause of tarrifs. Well I guess they will learn and #VoteBlue

A week ago I was tired and frustrated cause I was focusing on the wrong things. I was resisting but also thinking about things like why xyz didn't follow me or why they didn't RT me or do I make an impact
I took time to reflect and refocus. Here is what I learnt. /1
It's not about me stupid
It's about the children pulled away from families, 528 of whom are still not reunited and it is unclear if/when they will be reunited. #FamiliesBelongTogether#chi

TODAY’S PRIDE HERO
José Julio Sarria (1922 - 2013)
I am far from an expert on Jose but learning about him gave me a great appreciation for all he has accomplished for the LGBTQ community. He was one of America’s gay rights pioneering leaders. #LGBTVoices
Jose was a proud World War II veteran and the very first openly gay candidate to run for public office in North America. Born in San Francisco in 1922. His father showed no interest in his son’s life.
