.@RepAdamSchiff joins @AliVelshi to discuss why it’s “appalling” that Donald Trump is threatening to not sign the Covid-19 relief bill without changes when the need for relief is so immense around the country.


Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the President wanted for direct checks. At last, the President has agreed to $2,000 — Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it!

Here’s @NicolleDWallace with zero fucks left for the bullshit:


The pardon power is intended to be humane: It tempers the bluntness of the law with compassion for individual facts and circumstances that the law may not account for. It doesn’t work if you elect a President lacking in humanity and compassion. And especially if he’s a criminal.


Trump just pardoned 2 former Republican Congressman — Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins. Just your daily reminder that Republicans don’t actually believe in the law at all.

Many will be wringing their hands about Papadopoulos, but in my view the pardon of the Blackwater employees is the most egregious and disgusting of @realDonaldTrump actions. This was a graven war crime that resulted in the death of 17 Iraqi civilians. Shame on you Mr President.
