Just two months into 2020.
The developments are awesome and insane. Full of bomb shell happenings, breakthroughs, swamp draining, Future Proofs Past, resignations, and QProofs.

Below some facts that February has brought us. Thread 👇🏼

2020 will be Glorious! 🐸🍿
The month started with Senate vote to acquit Trump on abuse of power, obstruction of Congress charges.

#TrumpAcquitted and End of the #ImpeachmentScam.
Followed by the Epic #SOTU2020 + #QProof

During @POTUS speech the Dems exposed themselves for their hatred against Americans.

The contempt for @POTUS and total lack of respect became visible during #PelosiTantrum.

Disgusted by this many Democratic voters decided to #walkaway.

Trump vow to protect Social Security/Medicare contrasts w what he said just days ago:

Trump says he'd take 'take a look' at changing entitlements such as Medicare
(Note: Taking up Social Security/Medicare is *always* a second-term act.)… via @usatoday
@USATODAY Estimated $2 trillion cost of Bush and Trump-era tax cuts (for the top 1%) through 2025 is same amount House GOP recently proposed cutting from Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and Obamacare.

(not enacted, just a budget proposal.)

Pelosi has so much hate for the The President of the United States and its citizens that she show her hate and anger by ripping the President speech.

@realDonaldTrump "Pres. Trump: "Three years ago, we launched the great American comeback. Tonight I stand before you to share the incredible results."

"Our country is thriving, and highly respected again."

On Social Security & Medicare, reminder:

Estimated $2 trillion cost of Bush and Trump-era tax cuts (for the top 1%) through 2025 is same amount House GOP recently proposed cutting from Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and Obamacare.

(not enacted, just a budget proposal.)
"It is a dollar-for-dollar transfer of benefits to those who need help the least paid for by those who need help the most," said Phil Schiliro, a Democrat who’s served in several government positions including as President Barack Obama’s legislative director.
The average beneficiary from social safety net programs would stand to lose $1,500 a year under proposed cuts.

Just gonna drop this here: Trump messaged more to Black communities in this one #SOTU2020 speech than Dems have in the last 4 years. I’ve been saying this for a long time but it bears repeating — Dems cannot afford to lose Black communities, but MUST do the work to win us back.
The work that we do at the @blackfutureslab is based on what we’re seeing tonight. If progressives don’t make sure Black communities are at the core of all of our issues, we leave a lot on the table for opportunists who don’t have our best interests at heart. #SOTU2020
Taking Black communities for granted and using us for symbolism and not substance — the issues we care about, our experiences in the economy and democracy, etc — is a poison pill for progressive governance. #SOTU2020

Our tax dollars should be invested in education, housing, prison alternatives and health care programs that provide opportunity and increased well-being for all - not in the Trump administration's anti-immigrant and racist policies. #DefundHate #SOTU
The Trump administration continues to promote discrimination against immigrants, people of color, the LGBTQ community, and Muslims. #DefundHate #SOTU #SOTU2020
The Trump administration is ripping apart health care and nutrition programs for low-income people. #DefundHate #SOTU #SOTU2020

Oops...Nancy reached out to shake President Trump's hand after handling her a copy of his speech but he turned away. Not sure if he saw that.
POTUS: "The state of our Union is stronger than ever before."

Dems not happy. #SOTU2020
Dem women are not happy that record #s of women in new jobs?

During the #SOTU2020, we thought we’d share some about the State of #MO08 (spoiler: it’s dire).

Join us at 8pm CT here.
Okay folks, we’re getting ready for our live tweet thread during the #SOTU2020. We’ll be talking about the economy, jobs, & health care situation in #MO08.

Ready? 💪🏼
Let’s start with health care:

In the last few years, five of the rural hospitals in #MO08 have closed. This means that for many folks, they travel to Arkansas for their nearest care.

People are dying because of this - and Missouri’s refusal to expand Medicaid makes it worse.

Tonight, President @realDonaldTrump delivers his third State of the Union Address. Follow along at @WhiteHouse and! #SOTU

I read that current Deputy Chief, US Border Patrol is one of president’s guests tonight. Be wary of politicization of law enforcement, including at CBP, the largest federal law enforcement force in the US. It’s not in the agency’s long-term interest to be used as a political prop
Imagine, if you can, the current FBI Director as one of the president’s guests tonight. It wouldn’t look right, would it? #SOTU2020
Well, the BP is way larger in terms of agents than the FBI, and is at the center of carrying out some of the president’s most controversial policies. It might curry favor with the president, but poor call by the leadership of CBP & DHS (Actings all) to be used in this way.

Silent protest at the foot of the escalator where Trump descended on that fateful day

So proud of people exercising our Civil liberties while we still have ‘em

Inside Trump Tower a silent protest otherwise known as our 1st Amendment Rights. I watched & listened to the Doormen at Trump Tower call GOP radicals to heckle.

THREAD: During tonight’s #SOTU, you may hear Trump tout his record on education -- but here are the facts 👇🏾 #SOTU2020
1. What we need from our Edu Leaders and #POTUS: policy development with an explicit race equity lens addressing decades of structural and financial barriers to opportunity for students in America’s public schools #CAPEducation #SOTU…
2. What we’ve gotten from @BetsyDeVosED: rescinding school discipline guidelines aimed at correcting years of over-policing students of color. #SOTU…

Interesting behind the scenes piece on tonight's #SOTU2020 (largely interesting in that no one will say anything on the record for fear of upstaging Trump): The State of the Union Is Trump’s Biggest Speech. Who Writes It?
Trump's speech tonight is unique in American history. No other president has given the SOTU while impeached and running for re-election. Trump tends to turn every speaking occasion into a campaigning occasion. That is obviously a bad choice for tonight's speech. Will he?
My guess is that he's going to spend the speech highlighting his "accomplishments" tonight, attempting to convince the nation that the state of the union is strong. He'll rely primarily on economic indicators for that argument. He'll say some things about the military.

Attention @realDonaldTrump Don't forget American tech workers. You campaigned with them in 2016. You promised to stand with them. Will they get a mention in your State of the Union address tonight? #AmericaFirst #HireAmerican @4US_Workers @AmWorkCo @jackjaypalmer @ColumbiaBugle
@realDonaldTrump @4US_Workers @AmWorkCo @jackjaypalmer @ColumbiaBugle @Deloitte @IvankaTrump "57,259 H-1Bs approved by DOL...actual number of workers who hold the visas is fraction of applications @Deloitte submitted last year...Deloitte also stands out for contracting H-1B workers out to other firms [3rd behind Cognizant & Infosys]." /3

Really sad to hear #rushlimbaugh has advanced lung cancer.

This segment:
turned me into a ditto head years ago. It's this great reaction to a caller defending Obama's preacher. Takes a while to get going, but once he does his speech will blow you away

A history lesson: Reagan killed the fairness doctrine which led to Rush and his audience of millions. In many ways it was and is the foundation of the conservative movement that allowed Trump to rise and survive.…
