Every time Trump is asked a question about a foreign country he 1) seems unconvinced the place is real, then 2) affirms that he knows it exists and that he is very popular there, and 3) says the country is "working on what I'm hearing are some very big things, so we'll see."

The attorneys who raised the red flag and the newspaper and TV journalists (led at our shop by the amazing Rachel @maddow) who covered this, and all among the American majority who made your outrage heard, proved that sunlight can save lives. Don't stop paying attention!

Quoted@NYTNational

The Trump administration said it would reverse its decision to force immigrants facing life-threatening health crises to return to their home countries. The move had been condemned by the medical establishment.

Donald Trump has turned the presidency into a travel agency servicing the Trump Organization and its properties and golf clubs around the world. He's grabbing money constantly, from political sources domestic and foreign. How can that blatant kleptocracy be allowed to stand?

What about the Secret Service and choppers and added travel? Taxpayers will cover those. Oh, and by "personally paying" Short means Pence, like William Barr, is PUTTING MONEY IN THE PRESIDENT AND HIS FAMILY'S POCKETS. Turns out there is royal tribute and all Republicans must pay.

Quoted@maggieNYT

Short messaged me to say Pence is “personally paying all family expenses.”

You would think the opposition party would have a field day with a president cancelling a trip to commemorate WWII so he could monitor a hurricane only to then be spotted playing golf two days in a row at his personal club. But I can’t even recall seeing one Dem take a whack

“If I die, politicize my death.” That's what Anavelee wrote during Saturday's shooting. I was impressed and inspired by her strength, grace, and desire for real, no-bullshit answers to the questions she has about her future. I hope we are worthy of her.

An Alabama 14-year-old shot and killed all five of his family members. A 14-year-old. This doesn’t happen in any other high income country. We’re not more evil. It’s not a failure to teach evolution. It’s not movies or video games. It’s the guns.

Trump sent the message that he looks down on Wisconsin workers by hiring a pilot to fly a banner over #LaborFest in Milwaukee rather than doing anything to actually show up on the ground.

Parish priest says, "The curses and spells used in the books are actual curses and spells; which when read by a human being risk conjuring evil spirits into the presence of the person reading the text." Whoa, Padre.

It’s just the most extraordinary footage. Never in my life thought I’d see a UK Prime Minister speaking on the steps of Downing Street drowned out by chants of “stop the coup!”

This blunt overseas take on Trump, and the precarious global situation his shadow casts over, with huge risks to the environment, the global economy and the post WWII Western consensus itself, is well worth a read. H/T ⁦@TheRickWilson
