Pres of @amprog -Center for American Progress, progressive, Indian American, feminist, mom, wife. Not in that order. Views expressed are most definitely my own.

It will do our country good in two years if Trump is defeated.

@jonathanvswan  Over 50% of the country thinks Trump is racist. He’s under water in Arizona. Over 50% of the country will vote for him under no circumstances. May hit recession. A party that isn’t thinking of a Plan B in that scenario is kinda dumb. Appreciate the retraction. Have a great night.

@jonathanvswan  Isn’t it part of reporting to wait to see if it does? Not to determine it will ahead of time? Call me old fashioned but I thought that was part of the whole reporting thing.

This sounds a tad like cheerleading, no?

@ESQPolitics  If @EJDionneTrump  is re-elected, the country will never be the same. I will happily fight them down the road but we need to save the country in the meantime.


You know what defeats the hatefulness of Trumpism? The largest electoral margin defeat since Goldwater. That is what he deserves. A humiliating, historic landslide loss. And that is actually possible.But it takes a bigger coalition than your twitter bubble. Build the army.

It seems a Republican campaign went to the houses of older Democrats, claimed to be officials, took their absentee ballots and got rid of them. The Republican “won” by 900 votes. It’s 2018. Every major newspaper should be on that story. #NC9 

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.

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.

I honestly worry that a lot of folks in the media have no idea how targeted people of color feel by this president and how angry we are at his enablers.

Just a reminder for all reporters: Trump’s daughter has a stash of Chinese licenses. She’s doing business in China Right Now. You may want to check it out.

I worked in Clinton WH during impeachment; there’s a fundamental difference to today. During Clinton impeachment, the public perceived the events to be punishment for private behavior. Trump's obstruction is using power of the presidency to shield him from public accountability.
