The Wrong Justice Department Official Lost His Job This Weekend

Here's what's notable: Barr -- by saying that developments in the Durham investigation "may depend on who wins" in November -- essentially confirmed the probe is politically driven and motivated. Otherwise, it wouldn't matter a lick who wins in November.

I can't believe I have to say this, but we should be speeding up testing — not slowing it down.

“I wanted my elderly mother to risk catching a deadly virus that has killed 120,000 people in the US but at the same time was concerned for her safety with regards to imaginary thugs.” Trump has broken these peoples brains. This is the real derangement syndrome.

A new tax break that Trump frequently touts as a boon to black Americans and hard-hit communities is spurring relatively little job creation while disproportionately helping high-profit real estate projects and not small businesses, a new study has found.

Siberian town tops 100 degrees F, the hottest temperature ever recorded north of the Arctic Circle. This scares me, I have to say.

Today I released my first campaign ad. It was produced by my kids. Let me know if you like it.

Kentucky has used Covid-19 as an excuse to slash polling places for Tuesday’s vital primary to defeat #MitchMcConnell. There were 3500+. Now, there are 200. Jefferson County, where half the Black voters are, will have 1 polling place for 610,000+ voters

Tom Petty's Family Doesn't Want Trump Using His Music For A 'Campaign Of Hate'

One of the most comprehensive accounts that I’ve read, certainly in a newspaper, of the racist massacre that killed hundreds of black Tulsans and destroyed their thriving business district 99 years ago. Read the Pulitzer Prize winner,

‘Mortified and humiliated’

Fox News' Chris Wallace: "Mercedes, please don't filibuster. We're showing pictures here and it shows big, empty areas. Frankly, it makes you guys look silly when you deny the reality of what happened."

This morning, the Nashville @Tennessean — the largest newspaper in the state — published a full-page ad from a far-right client warning “Islam is going to detonate a nuclear device in Nashville, Tennessee.” It’s accompanied by photos of Donald Trump and Pope Francis.

From our Chief White House @Acosta : Turns out Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are “pissed” at Trump Campaign Mgr. Brad Parscale for predicting a much larger turnout at the Tulsa rally last night than actually showed — only 6200. There were thousands of empty seats. #CNN

Comedian D.L. Hughley says he tested positive for COVID-19 after collapsing onstage during a comedy club performance in Nashville

Saudi dissident Omar Abdulaziz was told by Canadian authorities that he is a “potential target” by the Saudi government and that he should protect himself.

My question is, why didn’t they use the empty seats to help people social distance? People could have sat with open seats between them. That would’ve been safer. Were they all squished together once again for the optics of a full arena?

Jeff Sessions is the only Confederate statue Donald Trump has ever destroyed.

Well now! Hang on Hong Kong. we will be there soon.

Happy Father Day

Donald Trump is getting very upset over these ads. So we made another one to celebrate Father’s Day weekend. Retweet this far and wide. Text it to all your friends. Blow it up.

Says it all.

Police are investigating a shooting that left nine people injured at a large gathering in Syracuse, New York.

The retconning of this as "It was a joke!" is falling flat.

And now a “sir“ story about how he single-handedly beat ISIS, Followed by a promise to land on Mars. I am not making any of this shit up.

“Feeding them false data was a bonus. The data they think they have, the data they are collecting from this rally, isn’t accurate.” i love it

My fav part was when he drank from an uncovered glass of water in a room with 2,000 people not wearing masks. Bigly Smart.

People are laughing at Brad Parscale but he has the fake emails of 800,000 TikTokers and his dad's condo to move back into.

I've been saying this for three years. You have to humiliate him.

Owned like a DOG.

President trump lord of the ramp looks very healthy and extremely normal

.⁦@PreetBharara⁩ reply to ⁦@sarahcpr⁩ makes twitter worth it.

Didn’t take long for tonight’s speech to make its way into ads.

Too bored to even laugh about it anymore. Just resign old boy @realDonaldTrump

The deranged orange man who gave that speech in Tulsa is the Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces. He is a threat to national security. He is a threat to our troops and their families. He is a threat to everything we served to defend. It’s not funny. It’s not a joke. VOTE

Dear Donnie, Well, the reviews are in and you laid an egg in Tulsa! And man, you were sweating bullets up there. The optics were lousy, but the yawns were infectious! Even I was yawning. Try not to kill off your entire base. Another night like this and they'll die of boredom. — bettemidler

Trump now talking about how if we defund the police the wife of a traveling salesman will suffer from a home invasion. I am not making this up.

The walk of shame

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz reveals he lives with a 19-year-old Cuban immigrant whom he calls his son

Our Kids

Teenagers have just likely prevented a major superspreading epidemic by squatting on thousands of ticket. Result? 6200 turnout out of >1 million tickets ordered. My god, this will definitely go down in the annals of this pandemic. #COVID19

He wasn’t playing with Connie

My 16 year old daughter and her friends in Park City Utah have hundreds of tickets. You have been rolled by America’s teens. @realDonaldTrump you have been failed by your team. You have been deserted by your faithful. No one likes to root for the losing team.

I love that teenage girls finally got their revenge on Donald Trump. @realDonaldTrump

This women is a badass and may be the reason why the trump rally was so very empty.

I can’t believe he admitted it on live TV.

President Trump infront of thousands of people just claimed Rep @IlhanMN, whose father recently died of the coronavirus, wants to turn America into Somalia. Trump instantly faced backlash from many who see this as a racist statement.

Trump drinks some water. The crowd goes wild.

When does that "Death Star" get turned on, @parscale?

Looks like Brad is about to go through some things.

Trump fires a US Atty investigating his inner circle, his AG misleads the public about it, and Trump’s relentless assault on the rule of law continues. Trump throws one body blow after another at DOJ, but the career men and women who fight for justice every day are stronger. — Sally Yates

FEMA sent millions of plastic soda bottle preforms that baffled public health officials in many states. They are unusable and possibly unsterile.

Eric Trump calls Black Lives Matter protesters "animals" at Tulsa rally

Teenage TikTok users and K-pop fans claimed to have registered potentially hundreds of thousands of tickets for President Trump's campaign rally as a prank to ruin the event.

“Because this movement was born online, it lives online,” one expert said of men who thirst for civil war and keep latching onto protests for exposure

so his finely tuned campaign machine is really just the death star; a bunch of teenagers with zero training can blow it up.

Fake news apparently misreported on the overflow crowd.

Donald Trump is so eager to get back to his campaign rallies that he’s willing to put people at risk and violate CDC guidelines — as long as they sign a waiver promising not to hold his campaign liable. Unbelievable. — Joe Biden

Trump on the media: "They want the stock market to go down, even if it costs them money. And they don't even know why. You know what? They're smart, and they're vicious. But they don't know why. I'm telling you -- they don't know why." #wut

Trump claims that pro-choice Democrats want to legalize "afterbirth execution." (That sort of thing is called murder.)

I challenge you to try and make sense of this Trump rant

Trump claims that if Biden gets elected, "money itself will be worthless"

One MILLION ticket requests for President @realDonaldTrump’s rally on Saturday‼️

Trump just admitted that he told his team to slow down the testing.

Speed up the testing. — Joe Biden

Shame on you. You are a public institution. You should not engage in blatant partisan activity. You should not spread disinformation. You take an oath to the Constitution and to the concept of free speech and an independent media. Public servants should be above this garbage.

The best take away from Trump’s rally is that racism isn’t as popular as it used to be.

Breaking: Trump on coronavirus: "When you do testing to that extent, you're going to find more people, you're going to find more cases. So I said to my people, 'slow the testing down, please.' They test and they test."

“Radical protestors, fueled by a week of apocalyptic media coverage, interfered with @realDonaldTrump supporters at the rally. They even blocked access to the metal detectors, preventing people from entering.” — @parscale Reality:

Dear @realDonaldTrump: You are so freakin’ stupid. Testing is what allows people to take action to stop the spread of #COVID19. You are killing Americans with your ignorant, anti-science statements and policies. And you’re a hypocrite. You get tested, a lot.

From the beginning, the lack of a response hasn’t been an accident. It’s been by design. His plan has been to let people die. This guy is a danger and a menace and it’s wild that now he just admits this openly and believes no one will care

Tonight, Trump said he deliberately slowed testing as 120,000 people died. Months into this pandemic, there is still no plan for this public health and economic crisis. To start, we need more tests, more PPE, and real economic relief. And we must vote Trump out in November.

Jesus. How can any Republican defend this?

“So I said to my people, ‘Slow the testing down please’” ~@realDonaldTrump ➡️WOW, never thought a President would just admit he sabotaged the pandemic response on purpose!!! This is the moment historians can argue Trump willfully committed murder, not just negligent homicide

...then epidemiologists would say that is mass murder

Is the President admitting that he refused medical care to millions of Americans?
