Honored to see #Whitopia in @FortuneMagazine newsletter as key resource explaining America’s political divisions and “the underlying reasons why immigration is one of the key triggers for people who have come to embrace the Whitopian promise” h/t @ellmcgirt #Insights2018 https://twitter.com/icopaolo/status/1032680557610758144

My daughter didn’t hide in a fucking closet for 3 hours because someone was hunting and murdering her classmates with a skateboard. Asshole. https://twitter.com/govmikehuckabee/status/1172872062286860288

lmao. 3 Secretaries of Defense, 3 Chiefs of Staff, 2 Comm Directors, and 3 Press Secretaries later, he didn't realize Trump is only for Trump....this administration operates like a well-tuned flip-phone. https://twitter.com/AmbJohnBolton/status/1171455806069305346

I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore....

The question many are asking ourselves: Would you rather an imminent, rough recession or that the economy coasts and Trump is re-elected? Your money or your country? #TrumpRecession #TrumpBodyCount

we've been granted our own forum, but unless this regime is booted, we're gonna be drowned by the Glaciers, crushed by record deficits, dying w/out healthcare, divided by racism, w/ no game plan for when automation guts jobs—voila! just like the Heteros! https://www.washingtonblade.com/2019/09/05/cnn-and-hrc-will-host-historic-lgbt-town-hall/

"Hey, @GOP, you see what Phillip Lee did today in British Parliament?

Good news:@mattyglesias documents big shift in racial beliefs among whites on the Left. Bad news: "The newly woke attitude is, in crucial respects, a bit vague in its precise policy implications."

So proud of Ismail B. Ajjawi to start his year @Harvard. But why was he allowed to be deported and what legal mechanism won him justice? I worry for all the less connected, voiceless immigrants harassed at our borders. https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2019/9/3/harvard-student-turned-away-arrives/#.XW2lJF8as88.twitter

Sometimes I worry that my 9 year old is too sweet for this fucked up world, but she looked at my face and said, "I didn't know you could be old AND get a pimple" so it turns out she'll be fine.

Trump may be cruder and more duplicitous than his predecessors, but he is cast from the same mold, writes @IAmRichBenjamin. https://lat.ms/30K8cZz

Dems keep hoping for that “reasonable” conservative who can save bipartisanship and the fate of the country. But @WalshFreedom & @SenSusanCollins are more useful idiots to Trump, than credible leaders.

Glad Harvard is stepping up but the power the border officers have at airports is bonkers - valid visa issued by State and clearly he is the person the visa names should be it - horrid https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2019/8/27/incoming-freshman-deported/#.XWUHgUOU7Q4.twitter

"ELECTABILITY". It's not so simple as glorifying a "safe moderate" or a leftist-populist. Either could win, which means either could lose. #JoeBiden #JillBiden #BernieBros https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORUI2wQlzDM&feature=youtu.be

Do not vote for the person you think is electable. You (and the polls, and conventional wisdom, and me) DO NOT KNOW. We have been wrong Every. Single. Time.
