COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

@EricLevitz The realities of this highly contagious disease are that 99% plus of people do not have it and know no one that has.

.@lookoutandlearn: Team Trump is like a baseball team without outfielders. He keeps winning/escaping because those like you enable those who only know weak bunts like @EricLevitz. Here's how Levitz can hit a homer. Ask him, he'll refuse to do it. https://imgur.com/a/Yt0YR0M

@EricLevitz Interesting question: Is it really punching down when he's already the lowest of the low?

That Little League team is terrible. You not only can't beat them, they keep getting HRs off you. What does that say about you? MT @JesseFFerguson Is it really punching down when [Trump's] already the lowest of the low?

.@nomoremister: Trump's going to Game 5 to rile up libs to "own the libs". If those like @EricLevitz were smart, they'd mostly just ignore Trump's troll. Expect those like him to instead freak out about it, giving Trump what he wants as they always have.

@EricLevitz @DavidAstinWalsh I didn't realize conservatives were pushing identity politics, and the cult of intersectionality.

GOP is based on it (NASCAR, Tim Donnelly's cowboy hat, etc. etc.) It's cultural where Dems are overtly racist. IAC, leave Levitz be. He's no threat to Trump. MT @DaveEll57279091 [to @EricLevitz ID politics] I didn't realize conservatives were pushing identity politics

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@br7ndon: in his Vox interview, Sanders opposed Koch-friendly #immigration policy. Then, when he ran for prez the first time he pushed Koch-friendly immigration policy. Do you see @EricLevitz or @jonathanchait calling him on that? Of course not: they agree with the new Sanders.

Since 2015 I've wanted to hold Trump accountable for his ludicrous plans. Explain what exactly sycophantic slags like you have done towards that goal. Here's a simple test: have you explained to MAGA how Trump Wall is unimplementable? MT @LukewSavage Sharp piece by @EricLevitz

.@blankslate2017 @drvox: you can point out to those duped by Howard Schultz that he isn't in any way a real Dem because he wants to legalize millions of illegal aliens, giving Big Biz millions of new legal workers & encouraging a new wave of wage-lowering illegal immigration.

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@jbouie: have you or @EricLevitz ever blogged that a) the #Koch bros want loose borders to lower wages, & b) @AOC 's immigration plan would give them what they want? She's extremely pro-Big Biz on immigration. The extremely pro-Big Biz GOP won't mention that & neither will you.

.@EmmettMiche11em: Trump shot someone on 5th Ave & is getting away with it. He supports *amnesty*. That's like if Bernie supported bump stocks. @CharlesPPierce @HeerJeet @EricLevitz etc simply aren't smart enough to take advantage of it by helping separate Trump from his base.
