Steve Mnuchin claims that Trump can cut or eliminate the payroll tax and not harm Social Security and Medicare, which is a total lie.

There is only ONE candidate in Kentucky who will fix traffic on the Brent Spence bridge and that’s @AmyMcGrathKY

I just got pulled over and for the first time i watched a white women record my whole traffic stop

This Black veteran was racially profiled in his OWN apt complex by a man in plain clothes claiming to be a “courtesy officer” in Lawton, OK... A Black person can't walk to their OWN HOME without someone harassing them. THIS is why we need change!!

Russia is actively helping Trump. Again.

As usual, if we want to know what Trump and Putin talk about, we have to ask Putin. And then we still don't really know.

‘It’s just nukes.’ Trump brushed off N. Korean missile to show off singer at Mar-a-Lago

This machine kills fascists. The great Chris Jacobs takes on the gun lobby.

This is brilliant! What was that you were saying Don?

Weekend summary: -NSA says advising POTUS isn’t his job -SecDef speaks w Judge Jeannine -SecState tells Lavrov to knock off bounty payments POTUS says didn’t rise to his level -Econ Advisor confused on relief package -POTUS signs EOs usurping Congress authority ‘Bout right?

NYT: White House reached out to South Dakota governor about adding Trump to Mount Rushmore

National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien on @FaceTheNation right now, in response to whether Trump has told Putin to stop meddling in US elections: “Unlike my predecessors, I don’t get involved in conversations the President has with foreign leaders.” No kidding.

New Zealand reports 100 straight days without new local coronavirus cases

"'The Battle Hymn of the Republic' is about the Great Reckoning, when the forces of good assemble to eradicate the bad guys once and for all. Which kinda sorta feels like what’s happening right now."

There were obvious security issues that seemed not to have occurred to Kushner, who “would have the Chinese ambassador and his minions wandering around the West Wing unescorted.”

NEW: @PeterNavarro45 says “it doesn’t help when Speaker Pelosi goes out ... with her scarves flying and beats the heck out of us.” #MTP@chucktodd: “Where is the president? Why was he at his golf club all weekend?” Navarro: He "is the hardest working president in history.”

When we rid Bill Barr’s cancer from our DOJ, & that rotting crime family from our house, you’ll see the power of what we created with this nation. And it will make you proud in ways you never imagined. It will. Then, we must never let fake patriots co-opt our symbols again.

Never forget that most crime is legal for rich people

So let me get this straight, @senatemajldr's job is to skip negotiations, let them fail, and then do whatever Stephen Miller writes on a country club cocktail napkin for Trump to declare by fiat to a group of guys with penal implants, MAGA hats, in pastel colored golf shorts?

Dear World - are you sure you are OK with Trump, Xi and Putin in charge of the USA? The world?

You're not going to like it and that's only if you manage to survive it.

Comment section is reopen..If anyone has anything to say to stop this, now would be the time.

Trump gets frustrated when @PaulaReidCBS won't stop trying to ask him a question about why he keeps lying about Veterans Choice, then abruptly ends the news conference as "YMCA" plays

BREAKING: Trump announces he’s cutting unemployment benefits for over 20 million Americans in the middle of a recession.

The long-term effects of Covid-19 aren't entirely known, but experts say many who survive the disease could develop chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis

The conspiracy movement QAnon is moving toward political normalization. What can be done to stop it?

Did the man just order $44 billion taken from FEMA in the middle of our largest disaster in history, defund Social Secirity, Medicare & schools, while cutting unemployment while providing it for 5 weeks all in a single afternoon? And illegally. Sounds like a GOP bankshot.

“Now fears are growing that Xi wants to cement his place alongside Mao and Deng by conquering Taiwan, a prize that’s eluded Communist Party leaders for decades.”

The Trump administration instructed hospitals to change the way they reported data on their coronavirus patients. The move has left some states in the dark about their hospitals’ remaining bed and intensive care capacity.

Either @TimKaine and I had a very vivid shared hallucination four years ago or Maureen had too much pot brownie before writing her column again. — Hillary Clinton

And I like her. But Democratic leadership needs to be on TV banging the drum about the destruction of the Postal Service and Russian bounties. The House should start investigations on both and they should begin this FUCKING MONDAY MORNING.

Ben Sasse: “The pen-and-phone theory of executive lawmaking is unconstitutional slop. President Obama did not have the power to unilaterally rewrite immigration law with DACA, and President Trump does not have the power to unilaterally rewrite the payroll tax law.”

Huge ANTIBODY study in NYC among 40,000 health care professionals. Key #COVID19 findings: 13.7% were seropositive. Of 6078 w/ previous PCR testing, 34.8% were PCR positive. Of previous PCR-positives, 6.5% had with negative antibody test results.

Dear Hong Kong, Pray for us.

If we win the day from Putin and Xi. We will come. I promise. xo

Instead of putting in the work to solve Americans’ problems, Pres. Trump chose to stay on his golf course to announce unworkable, weak & narrow policy announcements to slash the unemployment benefits that millions desperately need and endanger seniors’ Social Security & Medicare
