@DLeonhardt @MaddowBlog Why is trump and pence lying about the test kits? Why did trump not get them from the WHO?… https://t.co/MMJQlVAxNQ

.@Enrico056: your questions are pre- #covid19. Adjust to the current reality. We need those with access to Trump officials to really press them on the future: getting more beds/tests/etc. @DLeonhardt has access. If he won't press officials on that, help me destroy his career.

DL is just a worthless clickbait grifter. Trump officials need to be *really* pressed on more beds/tests/supplies. Demand DL does that or help end its career MT @rfordham811 [we know already] MT @DLeonhardt [hypes its "Complete List of Trump's Attempts to Play Down Coronavirus"]

.@RyanCaseyWA: "moderate" is @DLeonhardt speak for someone who'll push extremist, pro-Big Biz, anti-American NeoLiberal/Koch policies (loose borders, free trade, globalism) as the GOP. Both Trump & Bernie slightly oppose those policies, even if both are fake.

.@DLeonhardt blogs "Simple Reason Left Won’t Stop Losing". He thinks more immigration is l/w & says cands pushed loose borders lest called "neoliberal sellout". He says instead "insisting on path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants but also slowdown of future immigration"

@DLeonhardt Ideology is the enemy of pragmatic advancement.
Sun, Mar 8, 2020 at 9:16 pm
.@nicasaurus: @DLeonhardt presents "a slowdown of future immigration" after amnesty as a realistic plan when it's down there with "the check is in the mail". Any amnesty makes even more future immigration & amnesties much more likely. http://24ahead.com/cir

@DLeonhardt The Berner left is more like a religion than a political movement. For them, losing is winning.
Sun, Mar 8, 2020 at 9:13 pm
.@raffine9: @DLeonhardt has it backwards: NeoLiberals (Koch/libertarians/economic liberals) support loose borders. Leftwingers (aside from leaders seeking racial power) shouldn't help U.S. Chamber lower wages His amnesty plan is a bad joke too: any amnesty means more immigration

@DLeonhardt I was so with you until the piece raised fracking as a solution for climate change. That's just not scientifically realistic.
Sun, Mar 8, 2020 at 9:11 pm
.@DoctorVive: I was never with @DLeonhardt. More immigration isn't really leftwing* since it means lower wages. He thinks neoliberals oppose loose borders when the opposite is the case: loose borders is a key part of NeoLiberal/Koch/Greed is Good policy.

Centrism is an ideology. Too often, we in the media treat centrism as inherently sensible. https://t.co/PuWXtU2E1R

.@defensealt: now, @DLeonhardt blogs "The Presidential Nominating Process Is Absurd". What's absurd is McDonald's fry cook applicants get asked tougher questions than any politician ever is. That's why Trump won & will again. Start demanding Leonhardt etc finally do their jobs.

.@JoshuaPotash: the smartest plan @DLeonhardt can think up to get Trump out of office is something that's already failed: street protests. How'd pussy hats work out? My plan is to engage Trump proxies in real, tough debate about policy. Whose plan is smarter?

.@jonahmz: you cheer DLeonhardt telling people to "take to the streets" if they "want Trump to go". Since that's already failed (pussy hats, etc) that makes you extremely vulnerable when I point out to Public_Citizen fans that you're duping them into something that already failed
