"I’ll tell you what, I’ll circle back in about a month or so." Actually please take my failure to respond to your slew of emails as it was intended.

Warren leading the pack in the enthusiastic/comfortable metric, which is an overlapping metric

Trump told Tucker that homelessness in California began two years ago. 🤦‍♀️

This is a) not true b) and amazing self-own were it true. What is true is that as other factors propelled an increase the Trump administration has cut back federal efforts that could staunch it.

Man Juul is still dumping a ton of money into passing their dishonest Prop C measure here in SF. Door hangers every night, tons of ads on TV.

Mr Lewandoski, a CNN analyst, who admitted under oath to being dishonest to the media...

@petersterne  @mattdpearceUh ...the same industry that lied about the reasons behind a zillion deaths is being caught at the beginning of lying about more. That’s the story. You think near instant deaths from vaping is the whole story? Wait 10 years.

My friend's 2-yo is currently in surgery for a big, rare, scary tumor. Whatever kind of positive energy you can put into the world today on his behalf is appreciated.

Why is Montgomery plum? Why is Powell orange? What color is at Embarcadero (I never go there)? Why can’t the name of the station be on top of the stripe more than one every 50 yards or so? All good questions. @hknightsf  @peterhartlaub  @meinhyperspee  @burritojusticed 


Hillary had fucking pneumonia and attended a 9/11 memorial anyway and fainted and Trump and his supporters went bonkers and said she was about to die. Trump won't stand in the rain for a few minutes to honor the veterans of WWI. It's astonishing.

“A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student. Mr. Stier notified senators and the F.B.I. but the F.B.I. did not investigate”

I am truly dismayed by how many in MSM got worked—yet again—by conservative claims that one video exonerated these kids. I've watched them all. None put them in a better light, unless you're really reaching. Some are a lot WORSE than original.

Is it possible to lose all respect for an anchor, a show, and a network with one tweet?

Those 5,000 troops sitting on the border waiting for a few hundred bedraggled migrants to show up a month from now could be digging fire lines and helping to evacuate people and livestock from California instead.

Today we saw journalists pull people from flooded houses and throw themselves between violent protestors. Trump says we hate America.

Just a reminder that Susan Collins put Kavanaugh over the top.

She was 14. He was an assistant DA. He found/groomed her in a custody hearing. He kissed and groped her against her will. He rose to power demonizing sex between consenting adults.
