#Epstein wanted to impregnate up to 30 girls & spoke of this in early 2000’s to engineer the human race with his superb sperm🙄

Maybe this is why #RachelChandler is #AllisonMack x 100? Because she’s his bio daughter, and was created for 1 purpose - To be her Daddy’s #Handler?”
Hmm...🤔
So maybe the role of a #ChelseaHandler or #LaurenHutton or #KirstenGillibrand something has been as the ‘ovens’ that ‘baked’ #Epstein’s “perfect” DNA?
#LaurenHutton (Pic 1 & 2 - young & old), and #MaggieNixon.

Pix 3 & 4 are #Hutton & #Nixon together

People polling at 1% & 2% with people polling in double digits.

Some tidbits: more NYers donated to @PeteButtigieg than all donors to @BilldeBlasio (deBlasio still has the worst unfavorables of all 25 candidates) . And @shondarhimes donated to @ewarren.
Where does @TomSteyer fit into this picture? Is he going to pay for his own debate and televise it himself?
@TomSteyer I had honestly hoped for fewer candidates on the debate stage, much as I really like some of these folks, like #Gillibrand and #Castro, who have some key progressive policy that no one else has.

Same rules as last night I am not numbering these tweets that would be a bit too difficult. I will try to keep the ellipsis to a minimum as well.

#Warren, #Harris and #Castro had previously called for #impeachment weeks ago.

More Democrats Are Calling For Impeachment After #Mueller Said He Could Not Clear Trump buzzfeednews.com/article/paulmc…
A week ago both #Beto and #Buttigieg had joined the impeachment calls.Today #Booker, #Gillibrand and others added their voices for impeachment and #Sanders said he would support whatever Pelosi chooses to do, but said it seems time to examine the issue.
The outlier among the frontrunners is #Biden, who took a wait-and-see attitude. In his
statement, #Mueller declaratively punted the ball to Congress.

Dems in March when #Bernie was frontrunner: "We have to accede to his voters' every whim."

Dems in May now #Biden is frontrunner:"Screw everyone who doesn't want Biden."

Dems in June after both are destroyed in debates: "#Harris & #Warren can draw young voters AND beat Trump."
Just saying that in January 2017 I wrote that barring another #Hillary run, the best ticket was #Harris/#Gillibrand or Gillibrand/Harris. From a policy POV, still true, but Harris/,#Warren or Warren/Harris works just as well. Each would obliterate Trump and energize voters.
Make #Gillibrand Sec of Defense (it used to be a civilian post), Booker Sec of Ed, Inslee Sec of Interior, have Buttigieg head a new post for #LGBTQ issues, bring Castro back for HUD, make Williamson the chaplain. Biden can be SoS. Klobuchar as AG.

It's a great Cabinet.

What's #Biden's policy?
At the rallies he has given thus far it has been "my buddy Barack."
NPR ran a feed this morning, and that was it.
Today #Harris is unveiling education, #Buttigieg prison reform and
#Gillibrand got the Secretary of Defense to address sexual assault.
There is plenty of time to choose a candidate from among the 24 running.
If you don't have a landline, no one is polling you. That doesn't mean your choice is invalid. It means pollsters don't know what year it is.
In my informal polling, only one in every 30 people has a landline.
All but one respondent was over 50.
None was for Biden.
So there's your poll.

So per @NBCNews, these are the latest fundraising rankings.
These are significant because #Warren is after #Sanders and #Harris in the polls where they rank 1st and 2nd (not counting Biden since he's not in) but her fundraising is below #Booker.
As these money rankings stay, Warren is in trouble for the debates like Castro and Gillibrand are because of the rules on how fundraising numbers = viability. Not making the debates would be terrible since #Warren & #Gillibrand are the most progressive & #Castro the only Latinx.
Also, these daily totals are averaged, but they aren't representative as a metric because all these candidates entered at different times & Sanders never stopped fundraising from 2016.
The question is, how much is no big donors hurting #Harris & #Warren?

I was attacked viciously by Democrats last year for saying that #Avenatti was not only not presidential material, but dangerous for Dems to tie themselves to, that he had questionable history with clients and contractors and women.

I was the 1st journalist Avenatti blocked.
1/
Hundreds of Democrats, including some prominent Twitter voices, claimed he would be our best choice for 2020 and excoriated me for "being divisive."
Avenatti tanked the fight against #Kavanaugh by bringing in a questionable witness who gave the #GOP an excuse to ignore Ford.
2/
Many of the #Avenatti fans are now pushing #Biden, which I have also said is a huge error in judgement.
Just as I warned #Mueller was not going to save us.
My point is simply that some of us have been covering politics for decades and doing it without fealty to individuals.

Hello & Happy Spring! (Thread) If you haven’t been on here til 1am EST, I’m going to unpack recently announced #opioid bill S-724 (named for John McCain). For reax check out threads by @erinbiba and @AnaMardoll (call @gillibrandNY ASAP to protest bill.) Onto the breakdown:
Sen. Gillibrand introduced this bill with a flip referral to dental work and a misunderstanding of the term “acute pain”. #AcutePain does not mean ‘severe’ in medical terms, it means pain lasting up to/less than 6mos. If you’ve ever had a gunshot wound,
been in/had a serious accident, needed extensive surgery, had #fibromyalgia #arthritis #endometriosis or #pelvicpain #backpain -just to name a few-you may know that sometimes one needs more than 7 days of pain meds.

So in my city #SSI pays $771 a month.
I was just informed that I don't qualify because although I make below the poverty level in annual income, that income makes me ineligible.

The SSI person was very nice as I coughed through our conversation, but it's over.
#CripTheVote
How is anyone supposed to live on this amount of money in a big city? It's beyond belief. Who sets these income levels? Where are #disabled people supposed to live? How are they supposed pay for a phone? Even a burner costs $25 a month. What about utilities?
The insanity is, I just qualified for #SNAP because I live below the poverty level, but that "entitlement" as the #SSI person explained, counts against your income limit. The woman was very nice & commiserative, but she closed out my file. My application for #Medicaid is pending.

Tighe noted that when #Clinton arrived to speak, #Gillibrand seated herself at 1 of the front 3 tables – all of which had been purchased by #NXIVM & were full of NXIVM members. Gillibrand actually sat next to Nancy #Salzman throughout the evefrankreport.com/2019/01/21/for…1sQu
Notable by their absence at 2nd announcement were #Gillibrand’s father, Doug Rutnik & her step-mother, Gwenn Bellcour. Rutnik & Bellcourt both have ties to #NXIVM cult & 2 of its leaders, Keith Raniere &frankreport.com/2019/01/19/kir…/t.co/R76JXeIgGm

This is a hit piece because Gillibrand's progressive stances terrorize the GOP, but there's some great details about her hard work, her dedication to public service, her leap left.

Twenty Things You Probably Didn’t Know about #KirstenGillibrand nationalreview.com/2019/02/twenty…
Gillibrand's finances and her husband's (he makes under $20k) are detailed. Their house cost $335k. Not wealthy NYers.
Her evolution on guns and immigration is a story of listening to others: she went from A to F in a year with the @NRA.
#Gillibrand admits she didn't know any immigrants and her district was 98% white. Now she tries to stop deportations in NY, something I learned from sources, but which Gillibrand does not use for photo ops. A complete 180° when she joined the Senate.

Inexplicably there are still folks in my mentions more than a year later claiming that only #Gillibrand called for Franken to resign when 32 Democratic senators + Bernie Sanders did so.
Franken could have stayed and faced hearings.
He didn't.
What #Harris said was most succinct.
Minority Whip Patty Murray was most damning in her thread:
My own Dem senator, Bob Casey, made the important point that Democratic men had to be held to the same standard as GOP men.

Wow. If you're still stanning for this guy, you are working for the other side. Racist, sexist, homophobic and just plain AWFUL.

Bernie: 'My Opponents' Want Black, White, Gay, Latino or Women Candidates 'Regardless of What They Stand For' mediaite.com/online/bernie-…
Why is Bernie slamming Democrats AGAIN and ignoring the wave of women and POC that gave us back the House?
#Gillibrand and #Warren both have more progressive voting records than Sanders. #Harris created the cash bail work he takes credit for. AND they are all running.

Awful.
Remember when Bernie said it this?

Bernie Sanders drew a swift backlash after saying white voters who are "uncomfortable" voting for a black candidate are "not necessarily racist." huffingtonpost.com/entry/bernie-s…?

Been on deadline all morning and just came on here to find this scurrilous misogynist garbage from Politico on #Gillibrand, the senator with the current most progressive ranking in the Senate.

Thanks to @rtraister for calling this what it is: blaming women for men's actions.
The obsessive and dangerous sexism that pervades our politics is the fundamental reason @HillaryClinton isn't president--Russia, Comey and Sanders aside.
As a nation we always center mediocre men over accomplished women. Witness Schumer being re-elected after abject failure.
Meanwhile, Pelosi faces a cadre of right-leaning white men who want to challenge not just her, but the very message of the midterms, which was to give her a win, refute the GOP attack on her and center women & POC over white male candidates/incumbents.
