.@JasonCT: smart experts can devise questions that, asked of Trump or a proxy, would reveal Trump's lapses to his base. That would force Trump to do better. @sherifink can ask those questions & make Trump better. Are you going to demand she does that, yes or no?

.@V2019N: Trump loves those like @ByMikeBaker. Like Maggie & all the others, Trump knows they're never going to ask him tough policy questions that'd really put him on the spot & force him to do better. And, those like you enable those like Baker whose only interest is clickbait

.@JoelHeyman: you & @ByMikeBaker are part of the problem, your fan(s) just don't know it yet. Instead of enabling Baker's clickbait, demand he asks Trump tough questions that'd expose Trump's failures to his base, thus forcing Trump to do better. Gonna do that or just "joke"?

.@BirnbaumMatt: you & @sherifink are part of the problem, "doc". She's just about clickbait & you enable her. Any time in last 4+ years she could have pressed Trump/proxies using Socratic questions to stop him/make him better. Thousands are going to die because you're worthless

.@torrHL: re the @ByMikeBaker blog "In a Liberal State [WA], Ambivalence About Lifting a Ban on Affirmative Action", how exactly is AA "liberal"? It's racism, favoring one race over another. It favors the underqualified over the overqualified. It leads to race-based power.
