It turns out that almost a half-billion dollars of campaign spending can’t make you warm, smart, or likable on the debate stage. What happens now?

OMG @elizabethforma  has written up a release from NDAs that Bloomberg can share with the folks he pretended didn't want to be re @ErinBurnetteased . is impressed.

I loved this moment when @ErinBurnett  asked @ewarren  what she'd learned working with special needs children:

Oh @blakezeff  is on with @AriMelber . One of my favorite former editors! Expert on Bloomberg, so listen...

I honestly think this is the sweetest Trump insult ever! There's no debating me.


Wow, Obama's former doctor is telling @ErinBurnett  that Trump is having major neurological problems, especially with "word-finding," and suggests he could be having small strokes.

Maybe she can tell her stepsons to stop murdering them.

This just jumped out at me: Mueller said: "When a subject of an investigation obstructs that investigation or lies to investigators, it strikes at the core of the government’s effort to find the truth and hold wrong doers accountable." Not "If a subject." Hmmm.

"Slurring," "Adderall" and #TrumpSpeech  are trending. Sounds like it went really well.

I want to remind everyone about Virginia 2017: In the 13 races where pro-gun control Democrats squared off against NRA Republicans, Democrats won 12. Top of the ticket -- Northam, Fairfax and Herring -- had F NRA ratings, and all won. It's not hopeless.

Harvey Weinstein gets indicted. Ireland overwhelmingly legalizes a woman's right to choose. It's a good day for women. And we're coming for you, .

I am overwhelmed by the support I've received today from all of you. And I'm thrilled to tell you I'll be heading to in the new year. Thanks to everyone who made this happen. A Christmas miracle.

A whole lot of people are angry at me today for calling a pig. They think pigs deserve a lot better than that. So I hereby apologize.

I truly hope @PlannedParenthood  rescinds its award to Susan Collins. The ABA withdrew its support for Brett Kavanaugh as "highly qualified" and opened an investigation into his behavior. She just proved she doesn't give a damn about women's rights.
