When you say the immoral quiet part out loud

Once again Jill is towing the Kremlin’s line by sowing distrust in our electoral system; and predictably doing so against the Democrats. “Weird.”

Just going to leave this right here.....

Those 5,000 troops sitting on the border waiting for a few hundred bedraggled migrants to show up a month from now could be digging fire lines and helping to evacuate people and livestock from California instead.

Brian Kemp & Rick Scott both use an “exact match” system when deciding whether to count ballots. This includes even subtle changes in one’s *signature*. Here’s Trump’s signature from 2015 to 2017. In their system, even Trump’s ballot would be tossed. Count. Every. Vote.

Trump visit to US cemetery in France canceled due to rain

Churchill's grandson torches Trump for skipping cemetery visit because of rain

Today, the president threatened to take federal aid away from a state where 150,000 Americans fled their homes due to massive fires. The president also stayed in his Paris hotel room and skipped a memorial service honoring American soldiers because there was a little light rain.

Bill Nelson: "Since Tuesday, the gap has shrunk from roughly 60,000 votes to about 12,500 – the margin has reduced by 78 percent and is now roughly .15 percent. We have every expectation the recount will be full and fair."

A Trump Hack Hacks Justice

Wow: Public records show that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke took 66 “personal days” between March 2017 and August 2018, excluding weekends and federal holidays. That exceeds the 39 annual days off federal senior executives would be allowed.

100 years after end of WWI, “the leprosy of nationalism,” as Macron calls it, is loosed on world again. I pray—w/no expectation that my prayer will be answered—that Trump will pause during his visit to France to contemplate what happened in 1914 and why.

Trump campaigned to protect himself, not help Republicans

In this election, the Democrats have gained more seats, the Republicans have lost more seats, than any other midterm election since 1974.

It turns out that Chatham County GA reported no mail in ballots.

Cyprus is at the center of a circle of corruption surrounding Trump

Trump: I’ll never forgive Obama for underfunding our military Reality: Obama spent MORE on the military than Trump has

Who cares, @LindseyGrahamSC -- whatever you say today you might be saying the exact opposite a year from now. Remember how in July of 2017 you said that there would be "hell to pay" if Trump tried to mess with the Mueller investigation?

How elected leaders are actually making the world less democratic

Donald Tusk attacks Hungary’s far-right prime minister Orban: ‘You are not a Christian democrat’.

Yes, five months after the US intel community publicly concluded Putin attacked the 2016 election in part to help Trump, Whitaker claimed there was no evidence that Moscow interfered in that election. Pass this on.

Putin and Trump say the same things, whether it’s 2016 or 2018

Donald Trump and Rick Scott are complaining about fraud even before all the votes are counted in Florida

Fox News appears to be boycotting Twitter!

I remember a time when the head of @CFR_org didn’t need to teach International Relations 101 to the president of the United States.

So, let's be clear about this: @PressSec's "intern" and the woman who tried to grab the mic from @Acosta is Lindsay Walters @LWalters45 and she's White House Deputy Press Secretary, not an intern.

Trump claims election fraud, tells me, “There’s a lot of crooked stuff going on.” But when I press him whether there’s any evidence, he deflects: “I don’t know. You tell me.”

As a CEO, Rick Scott oversaw a multi-billion dollar Medicare fraud - the biggest in American history resulting in 14 felonies and a $1.7 billion fine. What makes you think that as Governor, he wouldn’t steal a few thousand votes by shutting down the count?

Robert Mueller has been unanimously confirmed by the Senate 4 times for 3 DOJ positions. He doesn’t require Senate confirmation now, but @realDonaldTrump’s ignorant comments make passing bipartisan legislation to protect the Special Counsel’s investigation even more important.

Apocalyptic scenes show a ‘firenado’ swirling amid a scorched part of Butte County in California, as the Camp Fire that forced thousands to evacuate rages on. Hundreds of firefighters are battling the blaze.

There is no evidence of "electoral corruption" in Arizona, Mr. President. Thousands of dedicated Arizonans work in a non-partisan fashion every election cycle to ensure that every vote is counted. We appreciate their service.

Really? 40% of us are OK with this?
