He was put in office by the electoral college, not the people of this country. He LOST by two million. Hes a disgrace.

Interesting that in the Texas shooting, the shooter specifically said in his manifesto that he wasn't doing it because of Trump. I think making the tie too strong between anyone who says something inflammatory and a domestic terrorist is deeply problematic and only exacerbates divides.

How curious that a discussion on gun rights and violence in America is brought to you by the Walton Foundation, the owners of Walmart who ban violent video games but keep the actual guns on store shelves.

I am very excited to vote for Andrew Yang for 2020! I really hope the media and cable MSM gives more opportunity for Yang to talk about his policies

My most recent text was to my husband: "Happy Gettysburg!" When we first started our relationship, we lived about an hour apart. I'd call him every night when he left my apartment to make sure he got home okay, and inevitably he would still be on the highway, almost always at the Gettysburg exit. So it kinda became our thing to give a shout-out to each other any time we passed that exit. That started 13 years ago, and we've moved several times since then, so we seldom see that section of the city any more. This particular time was over the past weekend, while on a road trip with my sister to visit her childhood bff's bridal shower, so there was a bit of extra romantic poignancy to it <3

Just unsubscribed. It just sunk in how this coverage is just another corporate Dem pushback to the progressive movement.

I have had private health insurance for my entire life connected to my job. It is defiantly better than most and I would love Medicare for all. Chaining insurance to employment doesn’t work!!! The moment that I change my job I can loose my doctors. Medicare for all protects all Americans. I will have my doctors no matter what. This is the only option that makes sense. I will only vote for a candidate in the primary that wants Medicare for all. A private healthcare company is only focused on profits not on people.
