Pro Tip: When mowing the lawn, beware of ant/termite-disintegrated stumps beneath the surface. Image
The aftermath. Possible sprain. How’s your holiday weekend going? Gah. Image
Update: After a couple of hours, a couple of ice pack sessions and a couple of Motrin, doing much better. Will wear a brace and keep an eye on it the next day or two. Thanks everyone.

Violence in our communities was never mentioned at the #DemConvention because Democrats simply did NOT want to go there.

Yesterday, Joe Biden was forced to talk about violence in the streets because the American people are FORCING him to go there.

washingtonexaminer.com/news/trump-and…
Biden is reluctantly emerging from his basement to confront this issue because Americans -- and what they see taking place on the streets of our nation -- are afraid to come out of theirs.
When it comes to law and order and violence on our streets President @realDonaldTrump has been consistent on this issue from the start.

I've been checking the main terms, accounts and hashtags on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram throughout the conventions and it seems like @GOP was more successful than @TheDemocrats in getting online engagements throughout its convention - Analysis via @crowdtangle ImageImageImageImage
DNC and #DemConvention were used 3.4 million times between 17-21 August. By contrast, RNC and #RNC2020 were used 4.6 million times from 24-28 August. Of course they might have been used both in positive and negative lights, but we're only guaging net engagements ImageImage
Here, I'm comparing the tweets and engagements of @TeamTrump vs @TeamJoe plus @JoeBiden vs @realDonaldTrump from 17-28 August. Again, there's no comparison. The Trump campaign wins easily. Now President Trump has one the biggest Twitter accounts, so the second result was expected ImageImage

“Biden leads Trump 50% to 44% among likely voters following the RNC vs. a lead of 52% to 42% before it began.

Trump cut into Biden’s lead among suburbanites and grew his support among white voters, though he worsened his standing with voters of color.”

Disclaimer: This is just one poll. Wait a week to see if others show similar findings.
Biden got 0 bounce from the #DemConvention.

Why?  His policies – he refuses to talk specifics out of fear he'll offend the center or left.  That gives Trump the opportunity to attack and define. 

If Biden remains silent, he will keep losing support.

If you watched the #RNC2020 this week, you might be wondering which claims were legit. 💡TIP💡: Organizations like @PolitiFact and @factcheckdotorg are great for separating fact from fiction during and after conventions. Here are some of the fact-checks that stood out to us:
Patricia McCloskey falsely suggested that @JoeBiden is trying to destroy the suburbs. In actuality, Biden’s plan is to bring back the Obama Administration’s fair housing rule that @realDonaldTrump overturned. factcheck.org/2020/08/republ…
FYI: Obama’s fair housing rule didn’t mandate low-income housing or rezoning. It just established a more structured reporting process to address fair housing issues in communities. npr.org/2020/07/21/893…

Wondering what happened at the #DemConvention? During political conventions, speakers make claims about candidates’ records and platforms. To determine what’s legit, read coverage from fact-checking groups like @APFactCheck and @factcheckdotorg. Here’s a thread of some examples:
There was speculation that @JoeBiden pre-recorded his speech, but that speculation was false. @USATODAY proved that he delivered it live. usatoday.com/story/news/fac… Image
@BernieSanders inaccurately claimed that raising the federal minimum wage to $15 would give 40 million workers a pay raise. @USCBO projects that it would only increase the wages of 17 million people. factcheck.org/2020/08/democr…

#GOPConvention roll call nothing like #DemConvention, where delegates were virtual from their home states, often highlighting scenic views & products, like #calamari.

Democrats won the roll call [and they should keep doing it that way]

#2020Elections #2020Election
Oh my gosh, the Maryland delegate just stumbled & said Maryland was home to two of the greatest "segregationists" & then corrected himself ... & said "abolitionists."

#GOPConvention
"Trumptana."

Um, well, there's a lot to unpack there.

I've been trying to come up with a tweet that explains why I think the progressive agenda is the right one for the nation but also explains why I think Joe Biden is right to reach out to those who will never embrace that agenda.

Both things are true for me.

(1)
We must create a nation that values each of its people in all the ways that progressives have laid out.

We don't need, and can't allow, the continuance of the icurrent 'make the rich even richer' philosophy that is killing us as a nation.

(2)
The radical right agenda calls for limiting and controlling people through hate and fear and a promise to return to a past that never was.

The radical left agenda calls for giving people the freedom and the security to actually decide on the nation's path to the future.

Stormy Daniels & Karen McDougal said Trump told each that she reminded Trump of Ivanka.

Add this

His question: “Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?”

The article about the quote: cosmopolitan.com/politics/a8353…
Melania, Trump, @IvankaTrump and sex partner Karen McDougal

Holy Mulligan!

You have to admit, it does look like Trump puts @IvankaTrump
first.

A dedicated daddy

The Trump fascination with pornography seems to be a Trump family affair.

Disability Rundown at #DemConvention

We had a visible presence. Yet minimal disability nuance & no shoutout from principals :(

1st mention: Pres. Clinton
2nd mention: Harris staff

Worst mention: voting for 45 is NOT a pre-ex condition (that’s ableist)

1/

#CripTheVote
Biggest miss: lack of a discussion of race, class, guns, disability AND healthcare with Rep. Giffords and D’Andre Dycus

Powerful symbol: Senator Duckworth standing alongside her wheelchair.

Best Story: Ady Barkan

2/

#CripTheVote
Opportunity: disabled kids. But can you all PLEASE stop telling kids they have to overcome shit? How about you instead demand ENFORCEMENT.

Hell Yea moment: seeing @VilissaThompson wanting a President to listen to #disabled people (start with this thread DNC)

Fox News is praising Biden. Bret Baier said that it is the best he’s seen him on the stump & Chris Wallace said Biden blew a hole in Trump’s narrative about Biden’s abilities.

Wallace said Trump is now going to have to run against a candidate, not a caricature.

#DemConvention
Fox News' Dana Perino said that Biden hit a home run and gave the best speech of his life.

So far, every single person on Fox, including Brit Hume
and Karl Rove, praised the speech. Rove said if he was a Republican strategist, they'd be worried.

Está por empezar el discurso de Biden en la #DemConvention.

En directo aquí:
Dos veces antes había buscado ser candidato, pero la oportunidad de Biden llega a los 77 años y hasta ahora las posibilidades le sonríen. Va más de 8 pts arriba de Trump en el promedio de encuestas y tiene 72 % de probabilidades de ser electo presidente.
El hombre que ha sido criticado por sus traspiés orales y sus olvidos y confusiones, habló en vivo y lanzó con fluidez, innumerables ataques contra el hombre que ocupa el puesto al que él aspira.

You know Bloomberg is a sociopath because he has the gall to show up at the #DemConvention after Elizabeth Warren flayed him alive.

We know who you are, Mike. You're a pig.
