I had someone reply to this tweet telling me that Stephen Miller wrote that op-ed. My reaction? Kavanaugh's name is on it & while I know terrible people are orchestrating damage from the WH, they may well be gone in 2 yrs. Kavanaugh will not. /1.
During the first year of the Trump admin, I can't tell you how many people in my mentions referred to Steve Bannon as "President Bannon." Yet Bannon is now gone and the real president is still there -- abusing the citizenry & our democracy on a daily basis. /2.

Watch the president at a rally in Mississippi mock Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.Trump is a vile creature -but everyone should have known that since the Access Hollywood tapes.
I ran out of characters but that video in my previous tweet was via NBC News. I do try in all my tweeted videos to expressly state the source even if it is stamped as such. The only images I do not expressly credit are generic unsourced images.

Grassley is shameful. He begins by defending Kavanaugh: "Nowhere in any of these six FBI reports...was there a whiff of any issue, any issue at all, related in any way to inappropriate sexual behavior." Then he attacks Feinstein & Democrats. This is despicable.
Hey Iowa -- it is time to stop voting for Grassley. Have some fucking standards.
I am going to scream and terrify my cat because I can't listen to this self-confessed pussy-grabbing Predator in Chief debase female accusers & tell a female reporter to "sit down."
Trump says China “has respect for Donald Trump’s very, very large .... *pause* ... brain.”
I need Scotch for this. And I have not even had lunch yet.

Benign. That's what my doctor just called to tell me. I had a biopsy on Tuesday and I have been in a stressed state since then. I can't tell you the level of relief the word "benign" brought to me a few minutes ago. It was as if I could finally exhale. /1.
The mass that was biopsied was not detected visually or externally; it was detected via mammogram. Specifically, it was detected via routine breast cancer screening. FYI: Under the ACA/Obamacare, if you are over 40, you can get a free mammogram every 1 to 2 years, /2.
Detention of Migrant Children Has Skyrocketed to Highest Levels Ever nyti.ms/2Nat9tC
We have learned that this administration diverted funds intended for FEMA & US Coast Guard for ICE, presumably to fund things like these immigrant detention centers. This is appalling & shameful. The depths of the Trump regime's inhumanity has no nadir.
SenHarris asks if Kavanaugh discussed Mueller probe w anyone at Kasowitz Benson Torres law firm. K: "I would like to know the person you're thinking of." @senkamalaharris is having none of it:"I think you're thinking of someone & you don't want to tell us"
I ran out of characters but the video I posted above, as stated, was via C-span. As is my practice, i always note the media source unless the image is generic & / or the source is unspecified.

"Woodward depicts Trump’s anger and paranoia about the Russia inquiry as unrelenting, at times paralyzing the West Wing for entire days." And to think some men think women are too hysterical or emotional to govern... washingtonpost.com/politics/bob-w…
The presidency should not be run like a business. The national security of the US is not determined by the $ bottom line. The folly we are now dealing with is directly related to electing a man who could not define the nuclear triad in a '16 debate with HC washingtonpost.com/politics/bob-w…

WHAT THE FUCK?? I cannot get past this. DO NOT try to talk me down. This is a complete violation of this man's constitutional rights. See 14th Amendment.
Fuck off to all of you who said he would only go after "illegal" immigrants. This man is not even an immigrant!!! He is a citizen, born in this country. But he has a Hispanic surname. This administration is blatantly RACIST. washingtonpost.com/world/the_amer…
Demographic change, and the fears and hopes it evokes, is one of the tectonic forces shaping this era in American life, joining income inequality and political polarization in transforming every aspect of our politics and culture. vox.com/policy-and-pol…

A Trumper just called me Ms Foul Mouth in my mentions. Do read my bio. There is no false advertising about who I am. But in all seriousness, let me tell you what's really vulgar: A noxious Russian tool as president in the White House & in charge of our national secrets.
Let me tell you what's really vulgar: Unconstitutional policies of persecution, of lists and walls, intended to hurt & divide people.

Pelosi was the best House Speaker in recent memory; she holds her caucus together w. RESULTS. She helped get us the ACA. And she's so fucking cool that she's cool with Dems bashing her: ‘Just Win, Baby." I am part of the 51% on board for @TeamPelosi
"McConnell...he's got the lowest numbers of anybody in the world. Have you ever gone up to him & said how much longer do you think you’ll stay in this job?... Nobody ever says that to anybody except a woman. But it’s a thing”- @NancyPelosi @TeamPelosirollingstone.com/politics/polit…

Tonight I had a young female Lyft driver who brought up politics with me to complain about certain Trump policies (like the possibility of Roe v Wade being overturned). But when I asked her political allegiance, she said she was "neutral" /1
I told her that as a young woman, she should care that she could end up having less reproductive (& other) rights than I grew up having. She said she did care. I noted that if she did care, then she was not really "neutral." /2

It should go without saying that this is 100% insane & no leader should be tweeting this type of message. Iran is not North Korea. This should alarm any sane human being with brain cells still functioning who embraces security and stability.
From 2011. And from the same guy who just threatened Iran via tweet.

“Mr. Oldham is a conservative ideologue who would not be a fair-minded jurist and should not be given a lifetime appointment on the federal judiciary -- an appointment which, given his age, could span half a century." huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-co… via @HuffPostPol
"Every Republican voted to put Oldham, 39, into a lifetime seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, based in New Orleans. Every Democrat opposed him. The final tally was 50-49." Oldham has a record of attacking voting rights . huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-co…

After a long day of travel, it is a bit weird to be getting ready for a funeral while watching the World Cup final, but in a way, I need this. Sometimes you just need the pleasure of distraction. GO FRANCE, let's do this.
Clear penalty. Good call. #WorldCupFinal

Happy 4th of July to naturalized citizens who have called this country home for decades. And fuck you to all the idiots who said he was only going after "illegal" immigrants. He's coming after everyone and you'll be next.
There are millions of naturalized citizens in this country & now none of them will be able to sleep well at night. Trump admin is vindictive it will find a way to go after people. So spare me with the "hug a Trumper today" or the "we're so divided" BS. We're divided FOR A REASON.
