I have a very simple message for Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell tonight. The best and only way to honor the life’s work of Justice Ginsburg, a giant of a jurist, is to honor her fervent final wish that she not be replaced until a new president is installed.

Americans shouldn't have to choose between protecting our health or our democracy. We've already seen the impacts of the pandemic's chaos in our elections. It's time for the Senate to #ProtectOurVote  and pass the John Lewis Voting RightsAdvancement Act.

The people doing the essential work aren't the Fortune 500 CEO or investment banker. It's the custodian, child care worker, or bus driver who have ALWAYS been essential - it isn't enough to simply tell them “thank you” and call them heroes. Actions speak louder than words.

I think we can all agree #2020  has been quite a year.

It’s bad enough that @realDonaldTrump  breaks the law all the time. Now he wants his supporters to join him. Voting twice is punishable by up to 5 years in jail and/or a $10k fine. Trump wants his supporters to become felons for him.

As an island state, Hawaii can’t drive or easily fly to the next state. We depend on deliveries of our medication or supplies from the @USPS —it's a literal lifeline. That's why we’re demanding Louis DeJoy reverse his previous changes and stop all future harm. #SaveTheUSPS 

AG Barr: if you want to defend @realDonaldTrump 's lies, he should pay you--after you resign as Attorney General.

Anyone who's tested positive for COVID-19? That's a pre-existing condition—one that won't be protected if @realDonaldTrump 's nominee is confirmed to the Supreme Court. And it's not just them. Millions will be left without health care without the ACA. That's what's at stake.

I have cancelled my meeting with Judge Kavanaugh. , who is an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal matter, does not deserve the courtesy of a meeting with his nominee—purposely selected to protect, as we say in Hawaii, his own okole.

Trip to Mar-a-Lago for 1 president = $3.4 million = Toothbrush, Toothpaste, and Soap for 2.7 million kids. With @realDonaldTrump , the cruelty is the point.

$400 million in tax fraud is the equivalent of the average American not paying taxes for 38,000 years.

Here's the thing-- Mitch McConnell is gaslighting us. Republicans rammed through a bill to give huge tax breaks to corporations and the mega-rich, and now they're using its consequences as an excuse to propose cuts to Medicare and Medicaid. It's all part of the GOP fever dream.

Robert Mueller has been unanimously confirmed by the Senate 4 times for 3 DOJ positions. He doesn’t require Senate confirmation now, but ’s ignorant comments make passing bipartisan legislation to protect the Special Counsel’s investigation even more important.
