I am the son of Vietnamese boat people.

My parents, 3 of my siblings, and several relatives sought refuge to anywhere. The USA became our home.

So it sickens me how this administration is separating migrant families.

This is not stock photography. This is my family. A photo of Vietnamese refug...
545 children do not have their moms. They do not have their dads. They are in cages.

"Clean" cages as the president said.

He didn't have a plan for COVID. And at yesterday's #Debate2020, he didn't have a plan to reunite the families that he tore apart.…
You don't "choose" to be a political refugee.

You are thrust into a situation where the life and wellness of you and your family are at risk. A photo of a man on the top...

Lots of people talking & being quoted re the separation, caging & othr abuses of Central American migrants,following th #Debate2020. 0 of those quoted are Central American. I just wrote a book based on decades of experience w these & other matters, but nobody's asking. Here's why
The first and most important reason is because the Democrats and their allies in media knew that actually existing Central Americans would have to share a difficult truth: the caging & separation of 1000s of Central American kids like the 1 in this pic began w Obama & Jeh Johnson
Obama separated over 5000 children fr their families--in 2011 alone. As is happening w Trump, many of those children separated fr moms were never reunited, lost in foster care or separated by a border. U can read re & hear screams n this @RaceForward rept:

My focus group’s words to describe Trump tonight:
• “Controlled”
• “Reserved”
• “Poised”
• “Con artist”
• “Surprisingly presidential”

Words to describe Biden tonight:
• “Vague”
• “Unspecific”
• “Elusive”
• “Defensive”
• “Grandfatherly”

“People running for office have to tell you what they plan to do and how they’re going to do it.

I thought Joe Biden would tell us tonight, but there was nothing there.” #Debates2020

Washington Post reporter @MFFisher asks my group of undecideds about character.

Similarly as before, they say Joe Biden is a more decent person, but they side more with Trump’s policies and how they affect their daily lives.

Terminó el debate y lo que puedo decir es que ganó Joe Biden.

Por qué ganó? porque Trump necesitaba noquear a Biden para tener alguna oportunidad. Pero después del espectáculo que vimos hoy, no sé a quien pudo haber convencido Trump, que no sea ya su fanático.

Trump es quizás la persona más aborrecible y vomitiva que jamás se haya visto.

Un tipo abiertamente racista, mitómano y egomaníaco.

Alguien que se compara (¡y favorablemente!) con Abraham Lincoln.

Es increíblemente ofensivo que siendo quien es, se atreva a decir que él es el presidente que más se ha hecho por los afroamericanos desde Lincoln, y quizás incluso más que Lincoln mismo!

También dice ser el más ecologista pero profesa un amor malsano por el petróleo.

Trump, when asked about the uniting the separated migrant children, is blaming the “coyotes” and “very bad people” and “cartels”. What a disgusting man.#Debates2020
Biden is very passionately condemning the practice of separating children. “It’s criminal!” I love Biden. #Debate2020
Biden, about the migrant children: “We owe them!” 👏🏼👏🏼 #Debate2020

“Did he say schools?

Whichever president will open the schools sooner, I LOVE!”

My 8YO, who was allowed to stay up to see the beginning of the debate...

and my heart broke as she said it.

For the record... she has never seen my Twitter feed. 😂

I don’t talk about this with her *at all*.

She’s dying to get back to school more than 1-2 days a week.
“They argue like kids!!!”

Moderator: ok dogs. I want a polite debate. No jumping on each other, no biting the podium. You each will get a question to answer and then some back and forth. At the end I will declare you both good dogs are you both get treats.
Beaks: AGREE
Bunsen: Yeppers
Question #1
Moderator: Some people are saying that the shoes in the house are being chewed. Some people are saying they are being chewed by a candidate here tonight. Some people are saying it’s Beaker. Some people are me.
Beaker you have time now to respond.

Dear @VP

Yes the American people have made great sacrifices to protect ourselves because you refused to protect us.

Dear @VP we refuse to take YOUR vaccine because your word is SH!T. You’ve lied to us for 4 years.
Dear @VP you look miserable.

I said last night that I would have more about why I think we saw the freakouts yesterday. Beyond the stories re registrations and Biden GOTV 180 turnaround. It has to do with ratings for the debate. See below...
The media was off and running with the narrative that they were the lowest rated in history. They weren't. Its just that people weren't watching the networks. IOW low information voters weren't watching. That's who Biden needs to vote
FoxNews crushed all 3 networks. Those viewers, in the main, would not be Biden voters.

The enthusiasm gap is right in front of your eyes. Even on the streaming services.

That, imo, is one reason they were off and running with the racist narrative again. Low info voters.

A nurses aide takes home about $1,826 per month if they make $13 hr

Some are paid as little as 8 - 9 an hr

You can't live & many don't have healthcare benefits because they can't afford their part of the premium

Republicans will not fix this EVER

Biden will building back better: higher wages, stronger benefits, fair & safe workplaces. Biden says et’s not just praise them, let’s pay them — a decent wage, at least $15 per hour, and ending the tipped minimum wage and sub-minimum wage for people with disabilities
Democrats & the vast majority of Americans think every American has a right to the peace of mind that comes with knowing they have access to affordable, quality health care.  The pandemic proves your neighbors' health is tied to yours.

Biden has a plan

1/ You are missing the forest, by choosing to focus one one tree. Neo-Nazis were ordered to be on “stand-by” last night. #This is not about partisanship. This is setting the stage for a coup that leads to ethnic cleansing. #WAKEUP #Snapoutofit!
2/ Okay, so some staffer made a mistake, but RIGHT NOW @Hillsong has a choice to make. Will you remain silent; holding to policies that are INAPPROPRIATE in these circumstances? Or will you stand on your spiritual authority and speak what you know to be true? #Debates2020
3/ If you fail to speak, @Hillsong, you might as well be holding Trump’s mic when he calls neo-nazis to fill our polling stations and kill our democracy. #Debates2020

Biden was weak on that Proud Boys vs Antifa exchange #Debate2020


Trump’s base doesn’t care he refused to condemn Proud Boys. But Biden’s base *see* violent Antifa Black Bloc rioting in the streets. Now we see Biden refuse to condemn by name, or even acknowledge they exist
So Biden inadvertently revealed Trump’s allegation is correct, Democrats are covering for Antifa (no one sane believes it’s “just an idea”). And Antifa does not sit comfortably with the base Biden’s *needs* to win over (even me)

Perhaps the real reason why “this won’t end well”
And despite everything we *see with our own eyes* in Portland etc, still you repeat this myth that Antifa “is just an idea”

Seriously, you think us stupid? 🤦🏽‍♂️

We know what we see: a loosely affiliated violent network of blackshirts

And their presence disturbs Middle America

After reading some headlines, I decided to watch the #Debate2020 myself and draw my own conclusions. As a political science graduate, I know a little something about media headlines, partisanship & ownership.

So here's a thread with my personal analysis/takeaways 🧵
1/ It was easy for me to observe the strategies of both candidates.

Trump's plan was to make Biden look old, weak, senile, out of touch, incompetent after 47 years in office, corrupted, involved with Russia & China through his son Hunter, and a mere puppet of the radical left.
2/ Biden's strategy was to look into the camera and address the viewers as often as he can. He appealed to emotions, described mundane situations that the everyday American had faced & essentially made it look like he relies on the judgment of viewers more than on his debating.

Die Schlagzeilen österreichischer Leitmedien zur Debatte Trump vs. Biden dokumentieren vor allem zweierlei:
1) vermeintlich "neutrale" Beobachterperspektiven verzerren, was wirklich passiert ist.
2) diese "false balance" ist ein systemisches Problem
#debates2020 1/8
Ein Vergleich der Headlines von @derStandardat, @diepresse_com, @krone_at, @Oe24at und @orf_at offenbart bizarre Einhelligkeit und journalistischen Groupthink. Nirgends wird benannt, dass hier nicht "beide" gestritten, sondern Trump gezielt den Diskurs zerstört hat. 2/8
Zum Beispiel @derStandardat: "Viel Durcheinander, wenige Fakten in TV-Duell Trump gegen Biden"
Natürlich ist das faktisch richtig, aber es ist nicht der Punkt, wenn vor allem ein Kandidat ständig lügt und unterbricht. 3/8

El debate : 🇺🇸🔍

1. Chris Wallace : el moderador, perdió el control del orden y estructura del debate (rápidamente). Este es un periodista de carrera y no es su 1er rodeo, fue decepcionante. 1/5
2. Tanto Trump como Biden, hicieron uso de los peores mecanismos y falacias del debate: Ad Hominem y Ad Personam. Perdiendo tiempo y entrando en discusiones que no tienen ningún beneficio para sus votantes. #Dobetter 2/5
3. Si C. Wallace iba a preguntar de: Supremacía blanca al Presidente, debió preguntar a Biden sobre: Antifa y BLM y como están destruyendo a los EEUU. #Eresdemócratayfueobvio 3/5

I fucking refuse to be dragged into the mainstream media PROCESS STORY about whether the next debate should happen. AT THIS DEBATE, the President of the United States encouraged white supremacists to intimidate voters at the polls.

THAT'S THE STORY. #Debate2020
It's not on Biden to figure out how desperately the media-industrial complex wants another debate It's on the media to figure out whether they are going to LITERALLY ASK A FOLLOW UP QUESTION and figure out amongst themselves how to STOP Trump from LYING ALL THE TIME
Debates are a TV show. The media CONTROLS THE FUCKING MICS. If they don't like what they saw they can literally just CHOOSE TO DO BETTER. If they so choose and Trump gets huffy and walks off set, that's HIS choice.

The MEDIA'S choice is to do their JOBS, or do this crap.

¿Qué ha pasado en el primer debate presidencial? Abro HILO con mi análisis: #Debate2020 #DebateNight #debatepresidencial #debates #DebateEU2020
1. Un debate sucio, bronco y embarrado. Un debate presidencial de todo menos presidencial. Fueron 90 minutos de tensión, interrupciones y ataques personales que seguro que a los votantes indecisos no habrá ayudado mucho a decidir su voto. De hecho, habrá generado más dudas.
2. Trump, fiel a su estilo. Ha interrumpido a su rival constantemente, ha lanzado duros ataques a Biden y ha conseguido sacarle de sus casillas. Se mueve como pez en el agua en la confrontación, por lo que su base electoral estará satisfecha.
