What a game of Twister the Republicans are playing, praising Trump for speeding life-saving vaccines while warning people not to take them!
Thinking of my friend, Sen. Herb Kohl. In the ‘80s, he saved the @Bucks for Milwaukee. When he sold them, he made keeping the team there a part of the deal, then donated $100 mil towards a new arena. He drafted @Giannis_An34 & signed @Khris22m . This is Herb’s night, too!
You could throw a dart at a wall of issues & probably be pretty certain of hitting one on which I disagree w @Rep_LizCheney . But on 1/6, she is doing something rare & admirable in politics-putting herself at risk for principle & standing up to the mob.
Seeing one after another pillars of the championship @Cubs traded these past 24 hours been like watching the wrecking ball level your old house. You know you have to rebuild but there are lots of great memories. Thanks for those @javy23baez , @KrisBryant_23 & @ARizzo44 !
Isn’t the very definition of corruption a president pressuring the Attorney General to lie and say the election was “corrupt?”
This may be why @realDonaldTrump has potential legal problems. If you claim massive losses to avoid paying federal income taxes but inflate your revenues and assets on bank documents for loan purposes, wouldn’t that constitute fraud?
The shooter in Boulder bought an assault weapon a week before the massacre. He had a conviction for assault and a history of aggressive acts. Explain to me how background checks wouldn’t help?
When the @POTUS wants to present a skewed picture of the virus and what it requires, he sends out Dr. Atlas, who has no background in public health or epidemiology, to parrot the party line. When the POTUS requires treatment, he seeks out experts who know what they’re doing.
