.@JCisL2T @liam_mchugh: mute a kneeball game & it's like something you'd see on The Ocho at 4am. It's like a very special training exercise for players too dim & too fat to play real football (i.e., soccer). A politburo has to direct their every move or they'd run the wrong way.
.@COAvsGirl07: plus, 95%+ of Newton kneeball players are white. That might have played a role in @NBCSports picking them. (The NFL is ~70% black and many are BLM fans and thus hostile to whites).
.@zang100: imagine you'd never heard of kneeball before & you saw a game on The Ocho but w/o the fans & the amped up fan noise. Wouldn't you think it was a very special training exercise for those too dim & too fat to play real football (i.e., soccer)? #NFL #football = #soccer

.@CTWpod: kneeball is a pathetic demi-sport. Ultimate Frisbee is more of a sport. Imagine you saw this #BUFvsPIT game - w/o fans & hype - on The Ocho. If you're familiar with real football (i.e., soccer), you'd think it was just a training exercise for very special players.
.@LeahHaberman: "When Trump's ban was blocked, did he ramp up screening enough to keep out ISIS etc embeds from FR/BE/DE/etc.? If so, then his ban wasn't needed. If not, he endangered the USA. Which is it?" Why can't Steyer think that up & why won't he have proxies asked it?
.@LeahHaberman: questions that fit in a tweet would force Trump proxies to admit Trump's "wall" is vaporware & his ban wasn't needed or endangered USA. Steyer could have made that happen any time in the last 4 years. I see 2 main explanations why he didn't. Know any others?

.@fret4yourprozac: the smart, easy way to undercut Trump has always been not to boo him like kids, but to act like adults & engage him & his proxies in debate. @IronStache is too much of a child to do that. P.S. Randy's immigration stance is also very pro-Big Biz. He's fake.
.@mediadiscounter: @rafaelshimunov hypes Amy Goodman trying to ask Bloomberg a question & getting rebuffed. Amy does most of the talking on the 2 minute vid. She could've asked 10 actually tough questions in that time, instead it was just 1 very weak one. Don't be fooled.

.@redwardprice719: what'd really help the USA is encouraging real debate. That's what Thunberg should have done: she could have really put Trump on the spot by just demanding that & pointing out Trump's too weak to do it. @joncoopertweets can't figure that out.
.@nancylevine: if @joncoopertweets were smart, he could turn Trump's Thunberg smear around on him & show him wrong to his base. I can figure out how to do that, Cooper simply isn't smart enough. Instead, Cooper gives the (supposed) bully what he wants. Pathetic.
.@benfluencer: Trump's Thunberg smear was a great opportunity to undercut Trump to his base, if handled correctly. Instead, those like @B52Malmet just play the victimization card. At the best, that just helps Trump portray his opponents as fragile snowflakes who play cards.

.@UrbanDoulaPro: why is Bloomberg giving $10 mil to help Dems facing GOP attacks over pushing impeachment, & why do you want @AaronTBurgess to get Steyer on board? I thought impeachment was an unqualified winner, at least based on Steyer's spiel. Are you saying it helps Trump??
