.@DesertPrimrose: @TomSteyer might as well be working for Trump. He encourages people to think something that's extremely unlikely is going to happen, causing them to neglect smart things they could do right now to undercut Trump (like asking Trump proxies tough policy questions)
In sports, goal is to win: more money, more fame, more security. In politics, the goal of leaders is to grift: get on TV, sell books, collect an NGO salary, fly around to confabs, etc. Only the big donors demand performance, the suckers can't even conceive of doing that.
.@peebsnjay: what do you think about the @IndivisibleNet fan who supports race-based killings (scroll back my feed)? What do you think about them supporting censorship because they falsely think only Trump fans are impacted, when Twitter censors about as many libs as cons?
.@KindaFedUp: FYI, AynRandPaulRyan blocked me for correctly pointing out she basically agrees with the #Koch bros (and Ryan) on #immigration. It's that type of behavior repeatedly endless by #TheResistance that explains in part why Trump won.
.@ResistProfessor: I just RT'd an #Indivisible fan wishing for race-based killings. Good luck getting them or @IndivisibleEVV to disassociate themselves from that. Plus, the main indivisible supports censorship because they falsely think only #MAGA is impacted.
.@ELECTRIC_PAPI RTs @IndivisibleNet and says: "I’m so tired of ugly white racists like can we just put a bullet in their heads already holy shit". To the #NYT & faux liberals like Indivisible, that's not racist. #MAGA #resist
.@emorybryan: here's a question for @stittforgov: "Trump ramped up screening of visitors. Either he ramped it up enough - in which case his bans weren't needed - or he didn't & he endangered the USA. Which is it?" When will you ask a politician a real question, Emory?
.@emorybryan: Trump's a big @stittforgov fan & vice versa. Did you ask Kevin about Trump "wall"? How would Kevin keep Congress - almost all of which opposes & will oppose the "wall" - from tearing down the "wall"? When will you ask him questions like that?
Trump tweets: "Thank you Indiana, I love you!" Unlike its east/west neighbors, one of our most horrible states outside the Deep South. #MAGA #resist
.@JenniferJJacobs: Trump has tricked tens of millions into thinking his "wall" is a viable plan, except he'd have to trade amnesty for it & Congress would tear it down as soon as he's out of office. A real journalist would press him on that. You aren't a real journalist.
.@margarettalev: you had a nice tea with Trump. I'd challenge him on how his "wall" would fail (Congress will tear it down) and on how his bans have made the USA less safe. Trump only chats with those who won't challenge him, and you very much qualify. #Bloomberg #CNN
.@TheBachel0rette: Kellyanne consistently rolls right over @ChrisCuomo, it's hilarious but sad. He can't go after her where weakest (she's very pro-amnesty), but even on things he's allowed to talk about he completely, absolutely fails to hold her accountable. #LetsGetAfterIt
.@KirkHerbstreit: kneeball is like real football for the slow. Add 30 seconds to 10 minutes (!) of non-action between each play of this vid. Kneeball players need a committee to design their every move; football players do it live. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZjz2W7nkZI
I sight read Cyrillic w/o thinking (as usual), but the same isn't true of Greek. This news is occasioned by me changing the language interface of a cPanel site to Greek (just for fun) and then having to sound things out. How was your day?

.@ChrisCuomo: despite (apparently) being trained as a lawyer, you never engage anyone in Socratic questioning when that's what's needed. A line of questioning used against Caputo, Kellyanne, etc could show Trump's various moves wrong, but you don't do it. #LetsGetAfterIt #CPT
.@riponcollege: so, to recap, you look bad to those who oppose censorship, you empowered those in favor of censorship, you claim r/w grifters are deceiving but can't do anything about it, & you gave lots of free press to those grifters. Great job. https://mrand.us/PzGM

.@KatCapps @SpyTalker: Trump's disinterest in #PuertoRico is no better than O/HRC disinterest in #MAGA. You could harm him if you a) showed interest in those harmed by the NeoLiberal schemes you support & b) hold him accountable to his base over his gross incompetence.

Theoretically, it's always been incredibly easy to show Trump wrong, stop him from being elected or getting his way, etc. etc. Yet, none of that has happened. Clearly, it's not because Trump is a stable genius, it's because #TheResistance are the opposite of both.

Why do smart, sane, patriotic, realistic things when you can go completely crazy? Why have a bicycle when you could have a flying bicycle that shoots laser beams? That's exactly how #MAGA & #TheResistance act, prodded by either COINTELPRO-style agents or grifting leaders.
No doubt there are many in #TheResistance who would - not due to profit motive but just because they're incredibly dumb and deranged - support someone charging Trump with genocide over #PuertoRico. Trump *needs* people like them. They serve his interests.
Just as #MAGA, #Teaparty, #OWS, etc were keen on COINTELPROing themselves so are #TheResistance. MT @Rey_Sistance Trump’s claim of his admin handling of damage of Hurricane Maria was an A+ in reality its epic failure F + and probable cause for Crimes Against Humanity / genocide
On #CNN, @RepCharlieDent falsely pretends #immigration is a left-right thing. It's more a 2D thing, with one axis being pro-corporate vs pro-citizen & the other being sincere vs fake. The loudest r/w leaders are very high on the fake axis & on bad side of the other. #MAGA #resist
.@StacyLeMelle: I don't get MSNBC, but it's highly doubtful #Maddow has had any sort of impact on Trump & #PuertoRicoDeathCount. If she had, Trump would either relent or attack. That indicates she's trying to hold Trump accountable using ineffective tactics, no?
