  1. This thread just sums it all up and it just goes on and on for 12 tweets or so. Seeing all the things he's done summed up like this is devastating. The number of people just going along with it is madness.
  2. I can only imagine the number of history books that will be written on this topic. We really have to hope we can turn this around next election. I don't see how we survive 8 years of Trump.
  3. It's sick that we live under a government that actively wants to terrorize anyone. I'm so tired of people saying this isn't who we are. I'm not sure there is a "we" right now, but it certainly is who/what our government and many of it's citizens are right now. More people are going along with all of this than I ever would have imagined five years ago. I recently found out that one of my college professors died in 2015 at the age of 80. He was someone I greatly admired. He and his wife were both the kind of people who make the world a better place just by being in it. Damned if one of my first thoughts wasn't thank God he didn't have to live to see Trump. He would have been horrified to see our country fall for this evil con man.
  4. Thank God there still people with the stamina to call this kind of thing out. There was never a doubt he would. While that ambassador told nothing but the truth, it just wouldn't be possible for him to continue on after the leak.
  5. The only one that surprises me on any level is Dershowitz. Not that it really surprises me, but I always think when people work in the legal system they should know the consequences of getting caught can be pretty harsh. At the same time maybe what AD learned is that most people get away with this kind of crime so he wasn't too worried about it. Not to say that everyone who has been to one of these parties is guilty, but it makes me wonder.
  6. 🙃 Tell me we aren't in the upside down.
  7. I find EW's "I have a plan for that" shtick oddly comforting. I guess because she always backs it up and explains the plan. Harris and Warren continue to be the candidates I have the most confidence in.
  8. There is a protest on July 12th. Looks like there is at least one in every state. https://www.lightsforliberty.org/
  9. Me too. It's very distressing and it's only getting worse by day. They are even taking medication away from these children. I suppose next will be an outbreak of disease that will kill a few hundred. An act of God that no one could have seen coming of course. 🙄
  10. Even Lexapro can't stop me from getting depressed over this kind of comment from a U.S Senator. Also, f*ck this monster.
  11. I like her more and more all the time.
  12. Yes! This is a good start. If they get fired I hope every one who can will donate to help them. We need leaders now who will try to get people motivated to oppose what is happening to these children. I don't even have any good ideas on who could do it, but I'm hoping someone will rise to the occasion.
  13. ^ I'm starting to feel like we are in the Soviet Union. I get that things aren't as bad as that, but the corruption, lies and denial of reality is off the charts.
  14. I'm with you, especially because people have been saying this for over 50 years now. Sadly, as I get older it seems clearer to me that while power is bound to shift, injustice is not going to be eradicated any time soon. I'm surprised about the poll you mention though. I do always think of young people as more open and accepting on the LGBT front. It seems like there are more parents open to raising children with less rigid gender identities than when I was a kid. But what do I know? I'm don't know many teenagers and I'm living in a strange little corner of the world.
  15. This is just so sad. The people who are trying to help are being turned away because of course hurting these children is a feature not a bug. Someone who matters needs to call a national day of protest ASAP, even if all people do is stay home that day. We should be bringing the country to a stop until these kids are out of the camps.
  16. I love the way these judges are looking and speaking to the government lawyer like she is an idiot. How embarrassing for her. Also, I can't believe this is real life.
  17. We need some kind of national day of protest, which I don't say lightly. It's not every day that I'm willing to risk jail or getting my ass kicked by the police, but we have to take a stand.
  18. I'm sorry to hear that. It really is hard living with Trump's instability and evil. It's an awful combination. I can only assume that the people in charge who are beating the war drums have a financial interest in perpetual war. How strange to think that Trump is the one who called off strikes on Iran 10 mins before we hit them.
  19. I think they were in a movie together.
