Canada has a message for America this Labor Day: “Vote.” Brilliant...

“The arrangement was described by three former employees ... who said that workers would receive bonuses if they donated to candidates [DeJoy] supported...” This is very illegal. Last month @RepJeffries & I requested @FBI to investigate DeJoy. We expect the FBI to do their dut

An investigation is underway after surveillance video captured bags of mail being dumped in a parking lot in the Los Angeles area

WTAF just flew out of Trump's nose? His mouth? The dude is a hot mess.

Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi: "Given all the very troubling accusations in regards to Mr. DeJoy, I think that he should resign or be replaced."

Sharing deceptively edited media is handing tRUmp & Co a major victory they’ll use to delegitimize real news and obfuscate when their side does the same thing. YOU are important in the fight against online disinformation. Use caution when amplifying content online.

My future Madam President, @KamalaHarris. You are looking at Vladimir Putin’s worst nightmare. The shining star of the Senate Intelligence Committee. The leader of the #NatSecLeft. The candidate whom Russia attacked most during the early primaries, at that time, more than Biden.

“Biden’s a stupid person, you know that,” Trump says at the WH, a taxpayer-funded event he’s turned into a campaign event

For years, President Trump and Republicans have waged a war on America's labor unions. It will end on my watch. I'll sign the PRO Act — making it easier for workers to organize and collectively bargain — and be the strongest labor president workers have ever had.

Trump, on his "suckers" and "losers" statement, responds with "only an animal would say that!" Mark this down. It will be very important soon.

Trump says he would support an investigation into Postmaster General DeJoy and says he just saw the Post story over his reimbursements to employee donations to GOP. “I don’t know too much about it - I read something about it.

"I'm not saying the military's in love with me- the SOLDIERS are."

Trump demands credit for not ruining John McCain's funeral

Trump argues that the World Trade Organization should classify the US as a developing nation because ... [checks notes] ... people are protesting in Portland

This Labor Day, let’s thank all those who've kept our country going this year—nurses, teachers, delivery drivers, food service workers, and many more. We can honor them by building our system back even better—so that essential workers are treated like it, pandemic or not.

Kamala Harris arrives in Milwaukee for meetings this afternoon in her black hightop Chuck Taylor Converse LIKE A BOSS.

This is parody right? Please say yes.

Donald Trump didn't create jobs, people just went back to work — but not nearly enough. We're still at a deficit from 2016.

Deep cleans and disinfecting mists might not keep us from getting the virus, but they sure make us feel better

You didn't create 10 million jobs. You are lying. Get on a plane and flee the country while you still can.

Happy Labor Day!

The Grand High Muftis of GOP are freaking out over Donald's "suckers and losers" insult so they're dragging up every soiled, disgraced, slovenly dingbat they've ever employed to lay down a deafening cover fire about "sources". It isn't working. Our military is (rightly) furious.

Assange fails in bid to exclude new allegations in extradition battle

This WWII veteran wants to let Trump know he’s the loser, and we couldn’t agree more

NBC News: More than 190,000 Americans have now died of COVID-19.

Trump’s platform is...”in his view, the country’s real race problem is bias against white Americans.” I lived in Belgrade. Milosevic told the country that Serbs were victims, although they were the largest and most powerful ethnic group. Didn’t end well.

Peter Strzok, the former FBI agent who started the 2016 probe into Russian election interference, says President Trump remains a “clear and present danger” to U.S. national security

The world looks upon us with abject horror.

Re-upping my article on Julian #Assange and just how long he’s been working for the Russian state. Spoiler: since before @wikileaks, which he literally developed with Russian help, was founded

In a dictatorship, the state media tells you the sky is green. In a failing democracy, the free press tells you that one candidate says the sky is blue and the other candidate says the sky is green, without mentioning which is correct

Alexei Navalny is out of coma and will soon be taken off a ventilator; he is responsive.

Capt. Sully Sullenberger: "I am disgusted by the current occupant of the Oval Office. He has repeatedly and consistently shown himself to be completely unfit for and to have no respect for the office he holds."

Trump, under fire for alleged comments about veterans, has a long history of disparaging military service

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer releases a statement calling for an independent investigation into allegations that Postmaster General DeJoy broke campaign finance laws with straw donor scheme, says "the NC Attorney General is the right person to start this investigation.”

Asked if Barr was lying, Schiff said: “That is basically what he is doing. And I hesitate to say that, but it is the reality.” “Apparently Bill Barr is ready to do anything or say anything to help Donald Trump.”

This is big. We discovered President Trump just got ANOTHER trademark to do business in a foreign country.

Former employees of the company that US Postmaster General Louis DeJoy previously ran told the Washington Post they were pressured to donate to GOP candidates and then reimbursed through bonuses.

The Kremlin may be unable or unwilling — and likely a mix of both — to confront and rein in some of the most toxic pillars of its regime. This is a sign of impotence, not power. It doesn't absolve the Kremlin.

DEJOY IN FELONY JEOPARDY FOR STRAW DONORS - 52 U.S. Code § 30122: Contributions in name of another prohibited

Imagine running a campaign so deranged and desperate that you are trying to drag a politician walking through the graveyard where his son is buried... for not rushing over to talk to the press.

New York Magazine: In L.A. County, Gangs Wear Badges

Any @GOP elected official, including @realDonaldTrump, who received illegal contributions from Louis DeJoy needs to return those contributions or donate them to charity. The conduct described in this article, if true, is flat out illegal.

Trump is lost & disoriented here. His mind goes blank and he doesn’t remember what he’s supposed to do next. He’s deep into his degenerative neurological disease- Frontotemporal dementia- mindlessly lumbering and zigzagging in the grass towards a puddle.
