1. I love Kate McKinnon. But, I didn't love the 'drunk on power' portrayal of @SpeakerPelosi on #SNL last night. Coupled with the Furies piece in NYT by @maureendowd it's particularly troubling.
2. No one plays harder ball or behaves more brazenly than @senatemajldr, and he is backed by a #GOP that will not be dissuaded by concerns of ethics, compassion or decorum. This is what we're up against. We voted in a blue wave, but, specifically, a wave of women leaders.
3. I don't imagine you voted for this female leadership because you wanted to continue on the destructive path of Trump and the #GOP. Yet, right away, we're placing patriarchal constructs on these women and judging them on likability, niceness, and decorum.

Your daily reminder that women are not responsible for men's bad acts.
#Franken resigned after EIGHT women accused him of sexual misconduct/assault.
He chose to leave the Senate rather than face his accusers.
Calling responsible women "mean girls" is #misogyny.
Period.
No other Democratic senators were accused of sexual assault.
Just Franken. Not one of the Democratic presidential hopefuls like Booker, Brown or Bernie (I know, "he's not a Dem!") were accused.
Just Franken.
A lackluster senator replaced by a more progressive and active woman.
Franken truthers still claiming that women are to blame for his actions because you liked #SNL are divisive and misogynist.
Sometimes men we like behave badly.
It's a (dangerous) fact women have had to deal with for millennia.
Don't accept it--tell/teach men to be better.

Whatever team Paul Simon is on, consider me an in kind member.

His haunting & magical performances tonight on #SNL were needed & inspiring.

To the haters, get some empathy (humanity) and a life while you're in the checkout line.

There are different kinds of perfect.

1/
Tina may not have the same moves she did at 50.

Billie Jean King might not have the same swing she did at 30.

And Paul Simon may not have the same range.

But you what? When they had it they had like no one before or since. Be grateful you lived to witness such greatness.

2/
At 77 Paul Simon has earned the right to sing with whatever voice the gods have seen fit to leave him with, and I am quite certain, for the vast majority reading this tweet, even now his abilities far, far eclipse what you will ever be able to do.

1) @Alyssa_Milano made a surprise appearance on #SNL last night. Kind of.
2) Matt Damon can still get it.
3) #SNL should not take any breaks until after 2020.

Thread:

My (probably unpopular) take on #SNL's #KavanaughHearing skit:

I understand that it's important to take a break from all the despair. I understand that comedy can serve as a much needed pressure release valve. Certainly I make jokes. I laugh at other's jokes and 1/
often feel a sense of community because of it. Less alone in seeing the absurdity - the frustrating, rage-inducing absurdity of where we are.

Having said that, I didn't laugh at #MattDamon's impression. Not because Damon has made some really telling and shitty comments 2/
about #MeToo (although the idea that doing this send up might rehabilitate his rep better than any lukewarm apology is insult to injury). But because I couldn't help but imagine how #DrFord would react to it. Beyond that and more importantly from a societal perspective, 3/

Cardi did that. #SNL
A reminder: @iamcardib wrapped that first album hustle and @SerenaWilliams won the Australian Open while pregnant.

Weaker sex? Nah. #SNL
(To note:

1. not all women can bear children; this is just an example of our strength;

2. black women especially are often reduced to our ability to be strong and/or bear children.

Pointing out the facts, though, that women are everything 🙌🏾)

(1) This thread is about a Great American and a great movie. In fact, the movie was made by this Great American, who we affectionately know as #BillMurray.
(2) Unlike the current trend of celebrities jumping over each other to denigrate the efforts of the current administration and .@POTUS, during a short interview on #CNBC Mr. #BillMurray made the following 'positive' remarks (can jump to 1:50 if need be):

(3) It is a measure of how highly respected #BillMurray is by all sides of the political spectrum that he can offer the comments he made and not be attacked the next day.
