#KimberlyGuilfoyle is the Typhoid Mary of the #Trump  inner circle.

So, according to #Trump 's niece, he had a stand-in take the SAT test to boost "his" score and help get him into college. Fake from the start.

Old-line #Russian  #communists  — #Putin ’s one — dreamed of stoking racial strife that would destroy #America  and its world standing. #Trump  acts like an old “Commie” race puppet, pouring gasoline wherever and whenever. Does he think he can win this way? Or is there another goal?

#TrumpWorld doesn’t understand or seem to care that dismantling our global leadership role will ruin our economy and put our freedoms at risk. We need to be in the game, playing wisely and patiently, to shape the future. Throwing infantile temper tantrums makes it all worse.

RE #CancelCulture . More than ever, I’m committed to the thesis of my book: that America is itself an argument, powered fitfully towards good by the energy of fundamental debates about our society that can and should never end. We argue freely or we fail.

The simultaneous rise of #BLM  and demise of #BrooksBrothers  is perhaps not entirely coincidental. In any case, it does capture the moment.

#Trump ’s demand for the quick opening o #schools  is, in part, a political maneuver to blame teachers’ unions ( #DemParty  mainstay) for the social and economic chaos he (not they) created.

Steve #Mnuchin ’s Exclusive Riviera Country Club Got Millions in #COVID  Relief — In #TrumpWorld , nothing is more essential than your country club.

The unavailability of #COVID  testing or prompt results is more than annoying; it’s a catastrophe and inexcusable. If #Trump  were actually a president, he’d have led on this like #Ike  at Normandy. But he isn’t and he didn’t. We’ll pay for his failure for years in lives and jobs.

There’s a new genre emerging of @Twitter  and @musicallyapp  comics who get inside the heads of #Trumphe  crowd and mimic or lip-sync them in a way that exposes and explodes their idiocy with gentle yet potent humor. It’s a healthy trend that might just save the Republic.


I didn’t know this, but someone in a position to know told me that @realDonaldTrump ’s morning national security briefing now is mostly pictures, drawings and simple charts because officials realized that he won’t read any text. He doesn’t trust or rely on the briefs in any case.

. @senatemajldr ⁩’s got a real race on his hands for the first time in decades.

Further: WH called the top and officials #PAone  #Pittsburght  a time and lied to each that the others had agreed. WH did the same to and . No one b #Schumert . W #Pelosi  also trying to push into hospital #Trumpooms  of victims but most want no part of him.

This picture of #Trump  at Andrews after the #Tulsa  disaster is unlike any we’ve ever seen. Ever the dime-store dramaturg, he’s undone his tie and put on the look of a defeated man. He thinks he’s crafting a new script as a Comeback Kid. He doesn’t realize that he really HAS lost.

Waiting for @senatemajldr  to denounce this — vehemently, convincingly.

I've watched unfairly bracketed w/ accused serial sexual predators. He & I've been family friends for decades. As a comic, he could be crude. He went too far (& apologized). BUT: he's NOT predatory, adores his wife & family & is a lifelong champion of women's rights.

Very solid #Dem  House leadership source just confirmed to me that @NancyPelosi  will announce a formal impeachment inquiry this afternoon and imply that she herself favors impeachment of . @realDonaldTrump 

Read This: #Russia ’s State TV Calls #Trump  Their ‘Agent’". Do Americans care? #Republican  leaders clearly don’t.

My twitter feed is asking a legitimate question: are @realDonaldTrump ’s businesses and family profiting from insider knowledge of his pending — market-moving — tweets, comments and bargaining stands? My guess would be yes. The real questions are: who is doing it for him and how?

Just checked with sources in #Pittsburgh : the mayor, county executive and governor will NOT accompany or meet with as he and Melania visit the city as families bury their dead after the massacre. The #TreeofLifeH  tried to force officials hand with false leaks.
