Pres of @amprog -Center for American Progress, progressive, Indian American, feminist, mom, wife. Not in that order. Views expressed are most definitely my own.
@ryangrim Think tanks are about facts. Something you should consider before episodes like this where you amplified a lie to thousands of people.
@kate_manne @joanwalshW @amandataubell since you’re walking back your own piece within weeks maybe your standard needs work. Women shouldn’t be believed less than men. But to say they don’t need evidence, that the accusation is evidence in itself, gets you into this place where you’ve reversed position so soon
Over 3100 people have died in the US from the coronavirus. More than died on 9/11. Only 158 in South Korea, though we both got our first positive case on the same day.
I hope Barack Obama just shows up places in the public eye every couple of weeks through the next election just to remind people what it was like to have a decent, intelligent, compassionate president. So they know we can have that again.
Reminder, we have very high unemployment numbers because we have to do radical social distancing. We have to do social distancing because we do not have enough tests to know where the virus is. We do not have enough tests because the Trump Admin bungled the tests.
Just a reminder that if Dems take the Senate, Mitch McConnell is no longer Majority Leader, Chuck Grassley is no longer chair of Judiciary and Susan Collins is in the minority. Find a Senate race and start working.
I dare @realDonaldTrump to hold a town hall with members of the public on health care. Retweet if you dare him too.
