I feel the burden of living in my country under President Trump has been lifted from my shoulders. For me, the relief brings tears of joy. I rejoice in knowing it’s a new day and a new way with President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

Let us all try to erase the hurt & pain of 2020 from our minds. Let us concentrate on the possibilities of 2021. Joy, Happiness, & Prosperity. Be safe! Love! Happy New Year!

Yes! We must investigate the security breach at the Capitol today. I warned our Caucus and had an hour long conversation with the Chief of Police 4days ago. He assured me the terrorists would not be allowed on the plaza & Capitol secured. What the hell?

The gallows that was constructed on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol with a hanging rope was a stark reminder of the thousands of Blacks who were lynched by white supremacists in this country. I never knew white supremacists would threaten to lynch the white former VP of the USA.

I made sure renters, homeowners, & ppl experiencing homelessness got support. Last yr, I secured a HISTORIC $25 billion for renters & I DID IT AGAIN in the #AmericanRescuePlan ! $27.5B for renters, $10B for homeowners, & $5B to beat homelessness. Always fighting & caring for you!

How could a trained officer make a mistake shooting an unarmed man with a gun instead of a taser? Hard to believe.

So Comey told Jeff Sessions he didn't want to be alone with Trump. Women across the country can relate.

Trump, you incompetent idiot! You sent 18 tons of PPE to China early but ignored warnings & called COVID19 concerns a hoax. You've endangered doctors, nurses, aids, orderlies, & janitors - all risking their lives to save ours. Pray 4 forgiveness for the harm that you're causing!

Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish was that her seat would not be filled until a new president is installed! Senate Democrats, do not back down. You have a tough fight ahead but our future is on the line! No SCOTUS appointment before the election!!!

I am a strong black woman. I cannot be intimidated, and I'm not going anywhere. #BlackWomenAtWork 

Is there one brave member of Trump’s cabinet who would move to initiate the 25th amendment to remove him from office? Now is the time to save our country before this would-be dictator takes us all down!

Melania, we agree. Children are off limits. Tell your husband to #bebest  and go enroll himself in anger management instead of attacking such a brilliant and courageous teenager fighting for climate change. @GretaThunberg  we got your back!

Lock him up, lock him up, lock him up, lock him up.
