.@Bobjay47: @JeffYoung seems to think Trump's taxes, if released, would undercut him. Except they wouldn't, just like "Drumpf" & all the other failures haven't. Jeff isn't smart enough to figure out where Trump is most vulnerable.
Pathetic snark. RT @JeffYoung I, for one, am looking forward to the confirmation that everything in Trump's finances is totally above board and that he always paid the taxes he owed.
It's clear to everyone except @Public_Citizen that the GOP loves AOC: they can portray all libs as just like her. MT @joylovetrust It ought to be clear to everyone why Trump & LindseyGrahamSC are so afraid of AOC.
#Cubs start the season 0-37. Don't worry, there's still time.
.@thetomska: #PETA also says cow's milk is a symbol of, wait for it, white supremacy. That causes almost all sane people to ROFL, hurting their cause. If you agree with their cause in whole or part, you should ask them about that.
"Let me tell you," Trump said to thunderous cheering, "I spoke with a dairyman yesterday. He said the cows really like it. I mean, they line up at 4am. They really like it. It's like a massage to them, with a happy ending!" and the crowd cheered! #PETA #Patriots
After 'Nam, with broken bone spurs and a hole in his arm, Trump wandered from land to land until he finally realized his true homeland. 24Ahead closes with this, his story: #MusicTuesday #MAGA #resist #NowPlaying https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYfFnpw4BsU
.@sandy_b_good: Trump made FL - a swing state - more blue. That alone could help sink him to the #GOP establishment & to part of his base. Other than being just as incompetent as Trump, is there an explanation why those like @jdawsey1 aren't using that against him?
I'll have to watch that, I'm still mulling over Glenn Beck revealing the truth about the statues in front of the NYC library. MT @grantmichaels The golf guy on DeadlineWH with @NicolleDWallace this afternoon revealed the missing Puerto Rico puzzle piece...
.@JohnLT12: Trump's gross incompetence on #PuertoRico made FL more blue. That could make him more toxic to GOP leaders & peel off some of his base. Instead of using that, those like @MollyJongFast have an issue where they can only play the race card instead of acting grown-up.
.@mizzou_bench: cons have made it incredibly easy for #Twitter to censor them, because cons only care about themselves. That's like going to war after disbanding most of your army. When cons stand with *everyone* Twitter censors, they won't be so easy to censor.
.@stanthonysf @LydiaBransten: you took @TwitterForGood 's lucre. Did they buy your silence? If not, speak out against them heavily censoring their users. Eg, they heavily censor replies from liberals to Trump officials. Not only that, they lie to their users via ghosting.
Sure, #SiliconValley titans have zero patriotism & would (further) sell out the USA if they could make even one dollar more. Sure - while many welcome their money - they've caused huge problems in the BA & CA: homelessness, social disruption, etc. etc. Look! #LeadersforLeave!
Jansen & #Dodgers just barely escape with a win on a double play. We (that is, all their opponents) will get them next time.

Millions of Bezos' money at your disposal, and you're too incompetent to make Trump do something. You don't even realize you're admitting your own incompetence. MT @WashPostPR #WaPo Publisher Fred Ryan op-ed "Six months later, Trump has still not acted on Khashoggi's murder"
Yet more empty therapy for #TheResistance: "Progressive groups plan nationwide protests over Mueller report release". #idiocracy
"Drumpf" didn't make Trump make FEMA pre-order enough sat phones for the Maria aftermath. "Drumpf" isn't even good consolation for #TheResistance: it makes them feel better temporarily but it ultimately just hurts them. None of them can figure that out. Like coked-up rhesuses.
Trump gets away with so much simply because #TheResistance - just like #MAGA - enables their corrupt & dim leaders. Trump pushes amnesty, pro-wealthy policies, his FEMA doesn't pre-order sat phones for Maria, etc. etc. all because #resist can't put away childish things.
.@lukehellier: hey Luke, @sambrodey blogs that Trump is "very bitter" about Puerto Rico. Trump's PR response was beyond grossly incompetent. It should show #MAGA that Trump isn't the chess player they think he is. So, other than those like Sam, why hasn't that happened?
.@joe_pa: #LosAngeles has huge problems, many related to the very wealthy inviting mass #immigration to get cheap labor. Instead of looking into that, @SamBraslow spent "*days*" looking for rejected vanity license plates. Please support real journalists, not just poseurs.
You show yet again that "reporters" aren't that. Verification was verification, now it's an endorsement. Twitter heavily censors replies to made accounts, shielding them from dissent. Real reporters would oppose. MT @swin24 [#twitter should verify] @sambrodey #VerifySam #wwg1wga

@billhandelshow: @Amstergosh illustrates the bait those like Fox use; fight it. She seems to be engaging in a tu quoque attempt except I've opposed both Koch & Soros for years. Trump's pro-wealthy policies help all the wealthy incl Soros (but probably more those who pollute).
Just look at all the pro-amnesty, pro-globalism stooges - including Marc Short of the #Koch bros - Trump has surrounded himself with. He's surrounded himself with .00001% of the U.S., all big NeoLiberals. #MAGA #resist
Reason it out: if Trump were a real threat to the #Koch bros, Adelson, etc. they would got their pals to spend 100s of millions opposing him. Obviously, he told them all his talk about #immigration, trade, & globalism was just boob bait for Bubba. #MAGA #resist
One of main problems the U.S. has is how NeoLiberalism - loose borders, free trade, globalism - has become the elites' religion: those who dissent are apostates. Trump pretends to dissent but obviously he tells Koch, Adelson, etc. something quite different than his speeches.
.@billhandelshow: Trump's #FoodStamps plan is designed to a) help the very wealthy (like Koch, who went easy on him to get such policies) & b) play into conservative anti-social and false beliefs. It won't be the last thing Trump does for the Kochs. Why enable all that?
.@billhandelshow: a good part of GOP base thinks AL/MS/AR/etc prop up CA/NY/MA/etc. That & "moochers", beach bums using food stamps to buy sushi, trickle down, the rich are just better than the poor (eg Saverin is better than poor patriot), etc. are key parts of GOP mythology.
.@KarenF: @TheRickWilson could easily undercut Trump to his base right now by developing smart plans to undercut the idea Trump's playing "12d chess". Like by urging Don Lemon to really press Trump proxies on Trump's incredibly incompetent PR response. Is Rick doing that?
.@BoogSciambi: the Thursday #Dodgers game was blacked out in the 2nd largest media market & so is tonight's game. #ESPN advertisers can't like that. Why even show the Dodgers when they do things like this?
.@SMurp3131: in other countries, Biden would just be convicted of a crime and sent to a camp. Here, those like @gettinviggy enable obvious political hit jobs, never questioning why Biden would be so hard up he'd hit on infinite baggers like #AmyLappos & #LucyFlores.
Amy Lappos is, not to put a fine point on it, another infinite bagger like #LucyFlores. And - obviously - neither have to personality to make a dent in it. Either Biden has an ugly woman fetish, he's blind, or they're dissembling. #MAGA #resist #AmyLappos

One way to undercut Trump's #FakeNews campaign is to point out he only sticks up for himself: he never goes after them over something that doesn't make him look worse. However, to do that the MSM would have to admit they constantly lie, so... #MAGA #resist
Cons help #Twitter censorship by heavily blocking anyone who disagrees with them. Even worse, they falsely pretend they're the only ones censored. That toxifies and marginalizes the possible opposition. MT @griffisk MT @tarafdavis: Censorship by Twitter 100%
The con base *only* responds to idiotic, showy plans that have Trojan horses, are fake, wouldn't work, and/or would make things worse. They reject making smart anti-amnesty arguments but line up behind Trump's Trojan horse/fake/unimplementable "wall". #immigration #MAGA #resist
Search for "grahamnesty". His law change would include amnesty. The smart way to reduce illegal immigration is to make enabling it politically toxic. No laws needed. MT @MathewsJeanne MT @LindseyGrahamSC: pora change the laws that are magnets for illegal immigration...

.@JaSiOui: @sahilkapur obsesses over Mulvaney's title, but ignores where Mulvaney is most vulnerable: his strong support for amnesty. Repeatedly calling out Mulvaney on his support for amnesty would make him a huge vulnerability to Trump. Kapur obsesses over trivia instead.
.@Energymom: @JonKarl takes a dive on truly holding Mulvaney accountable. Mulvaney is most vulnerabe on his strong support for amnesty, but no one with access to Mulvaney really presses him on it. Karl, ABC, CNN, etc etc all give Mulvaney a pass where he's most vulnerable.
