Two students and a teacher at school attended by Barrett children test positive for coronavirus


Concealing information in a confirmation hearing can be impeachable. Judge Barrett also didn't disclose decades long involvement with People of Praise in her 2017 confirmation. We need more facts. The first hearing should be in the House not the Senate.


North Korea has not gotten rid of a single nuclear weapon & has increased nuclear fuel production; Russia put bounties on our troops & Iran is building a more advanced nuclear program. But what is @SecPompeo focused on? Hillary Clinton’s emails. Ridiculous.


It’s “unlikely” because McConnell continues to oppose helping American families and businesses, as he has since the House first passed the HEROES Act in May. This is not fate, it’s a choice


It's unconscionable that Republicans are abandoning America’s working families who have been devastated by our health and economic crises. Nearly 5 months since Democrats acted to crush the #coronavirus and put money in people’s pockets, the needs have only gotten more urgent.


After 30-minute talk with Mnuchin, Pelosi’s office says WH lacks a plan on the virus


This sheriff is trying to claim that kidnap conspiracy might have been a "citizen's arrest." πŸ™„ Under Michigan law, someone making a citizen's arrest is required to inform the person they intend to arrest and the reason why. Which would preclude the need to secretly kidnap them.


Just putting this out there: If Trump and Pence both have Covid three weeks before their reelection, there's nothing they wouldn't do to hide it.


Trump said today, “Putin probably, possibly likes me. But...I guarantee you he'd rather see Biden." This is, of course, a 100% lie. U.S. intel is ON THE RECORD that Putin is working to elect Trump. And I’ve seen the classified info - the Russian effort is extraordinary.


It's time to say it, folks: Don wants out. He hates being president, he's sick, and he's broke. My assessment, for all to enjoy:


A GOP staffer sends: “JFC, this idiot is painting us into another corner” Trump just said on Rush Limbaugh that he wants a bigger stimulus package than either party is offering... after canceling talks because he said the Dems wanted too much.


“If you fuck around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are gonna do things to you that have never been done before.” — the President of the United States


“Why all of a sudden does this company have more than $20 m in fees that haven’t been there before?” said Daniel Shaviro, professor of taxation at NYU Law. “And all of this money is going to a man who just happens to be running for president?”


"This is not about President Trump," says @SpeakerPelosi. But this is an important chance for all of Congress to improve the continuity of America's federal government while a real-life scenario is looming, one that focuses the mind on the task at hand.


In his effort to win over more Black voters, yesterday President Trump sued Yale University for admitting too many Black applicants and not being friendly enough to rich, white applicants. True story


On this episode of ⁦@NewAbnormalPod⁩, ⁦@TheRickWilson⁩ and I talk to ⁦@goldietaylor⁩ & ⁦@MikeEspyMS⁩! ⁦


Biden wants to undo ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ tax cuts. Wall Street is backing him anyway


Trump’s Struggles Ripple Across the Sun Belt, Endangering G.O.P. Stronghold


US is averaging more than 45,000 new #Covid19 positive tests each day—up 8% from the previous week and over 2x than June, as lockdown restrictions were easing. CDC predicts 233k deaths by end of October.


Pennsylvania will become the first and only state to disqualify ballots received without a required secrecy envelope -- referred to as "naked ballots" -- while giving voters no recourse to fix the mistake.


Donald Trump thrilled the real estate industry when he won the 2016 election, calling himself the "builder president." But now more of them are supporting Joe Biden


I’m really stuck on this thing where FoxNews refused to cover the most significant story of the day—the most significant domestic terrorism plot *in years*—in prime time because it doesn’t fit the editorial narrative they are using to mindf*ck Americans toward political violence


Bill Barr insists he was unaware of the violent terrorist threats against Michigan’s Democratic governor — as the FBI was unraveling the kidnap plot. Um... isn’t that Barr’s f*cking JOB?!


Woe to the nation that calls evil good and good evil


Dear @realDonaldTrump: Since you avoided military service, you may not know that after basic training, military officers pay for uniform items. So you made lots of officers spend their own money to buy another belt. That’s a dumb thing to brag about in a pandemic.


After a thwarted attempt to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, President Trump lashed out at the governor, accusing her of being ungrateful to his administration


Why won't you take the test, Lindsey?


Super spreader In CHIEF


When Governor Whitmer worked to protect her state from a deadly pandemic, President Trump issued a call to "LIBERATE MICHIGAN!" That call was heard. He's giving oxygen to the bigotry and hate we see on the march in our country — and we have to stop it.

Whatever amount of security Joe Biden currently has, he should triple it. Trump and his terrorists are out of control.


.@realDonaldTrump @seanhannity This President couldn’t deliver water to the people after hurricanes..who thinks he will be able to deliver highly sophisticated vaccines to 300 million people?We have the talent below, we don’t have the leadership above....#JoeBidenKamalaHarris2020


Robert Redfield intervened to "clear" Pence for the debate. He had no business doing so. If Pence does have Covid-- and the pinkeye, the abrupt cancellation of his Indiana trip are warning signs-- Redfield needs to resign immediately. He has taken politicization of CDC to extreme


Let me just sum up what’s going on: tonight is yet another reminder that the President of the United States is barking mad.


This article suggests that the president of the United Stares—the man who controls the nuclear arsenal—may be suffering steroids-induced mania. And not one Republican has expressed concern about this.


In Harris County, TX—home to the city of Houston & 4.7 million people—there’s one ballot drop off site. Lines have been long & polling staff working hard, so we made sure they had a hot meal today from our partner restaurant Lucille’s! Thank you poll workers


Gov. Whitmer on CNN responds to Jason Miller: "I think it tells you everything you need to know about the White House and the people they surround themselves by. The fact that after a plot to kidnap and to kill me, this is what they come out with. They attack me."


This is why Trump is down by 27 points with seniors


“There’s no wall. His tariffs have crippled farmers. He didn’t bring back manufacturing. He didn’t bring back coal. He didn’t repeal Obamacare. He’s alienated allies. He failed in North Korea. If he loses, he brings down the Senate with him.”


Coughing Trump tells Hannity he's healthy and ready to hold rallies


"We can no longer afford in this nation to have our elected leaders like the President... sending not just winks and nods," says Michigan AG @dananessel on the Gov. Whitmer kidnapping plot. "It's not a dog whistle... it's literally a command to action for domestic terrorists."


nvestors' bets on a Democratic sweep grow after Biden debate performance


The World Food Program was awarded the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday


Trump Lashes Out at His Cabinet With Calls to Indict Political Rivals.


Let's not mince words here: This is bullshit, and Cornyn knows it. He voted repeatedly to repeal the Affordable Care Act's protections for pre-existing conditions and the Protect Act is about as useful as a wet bandaid.


Perspective: No more presidential debates this year? Not a problem. We’ve seen enough.


I’m here for you, @GovWhitmer. I know that being a woman elected to office comes with great pride and sometimes great risk. Violence has no place in our democracy, and we all need to vote for leaders who uphold that simple truth. Words matter.

Hong Kong activist ‘Lunch Brother’ gains online followers and protest-movement critics


“People in Hong Kong are worried that they’ll be tortured and kept in incommunicado detention indefinitely,” said Eddie Chu, a pro-democracy politician

Trump concludes his interview with Hannity by claiming that Mike Pence refusing to commit to a peaceful transition of power during the VP debate was his "best answer" of the night


Nobody: Not a soul: Trump:


"California is gonna have to ration water. You wanna know why? Because they send millions of gallons of water out to sea, out to the Pacific. Because they want to take care of certain little tiny fish, that aren't doing very well without water." -- Trump


"I see Witmer today, she's complaining, but it was our Justice Department that arrested the people she was complaining about... what she's doing is a horrible thing to the people"- Trump attacks Gretchen Whitmer, the victim of a kidnapping/execution plot hatched by his supporters


Trump says he wants to debate Biden but wants moderators like Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Judge Jeanine, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, or Tucker Carlson


Holy shit. Trump, who won't say if he's tested negative for coronavirus (so he either hasn't been tested or is still testing positive), says he plans to do a rally this Saturday night in Florida.


Please see lawsuit we just filed on behalf of 6 Miami-Dade County residents against Trump to keep him away for debate or whatever else he has plans for the area


That’s exactly right. It’s awful. This is our president???


Trump thinks Barr and Pompeo haven't done enough for him. In the past year: Barr dropped Flynn case, tried to lower Stone sentence, is shielding Trump in E. Jean Carroll lawsuit. Pompeo defied House subpoenas, stonewalled impeachment, helped oust Yovanovitch. Trump not satisfied.


Jill and I are keeping the Gulf Coast in our prayers tonight. If you’re in Hurricane Delta’s path, please heed the advice of local officials, take steps to prepare, and stay safe.


Khizr Khan to @maddow: "There is a public health concern exception to HIPAA where if your patient has become a public concern, a public health concern, you must disclose the details so that public health concerns could be addressed."


Supreme Court confirmation hearings are set to start on Monday—less than two weeks after members on the committee tested positive for COVID-19. This is utterly reckless.


Former @FBI Dep Dir Andrew McCabe during @CNN coverage of alleged #Michigan plot: “The person most responsible for fomenting this kind of unrest, this sort of division, this sort of violence in this country right now is the president of the United States.”


25th amendment


"...threats of violence to instigate a civil war leading to societal collapse"




Joe Biden: "There is a throughline from President Trump's dog whistles and tolerance of hate, vengeance, and lawlessness to plots such as this one. He is giving oxygen to the bigotry and hate we see on the march in our country. We have to stop it."
