“There will be trouble.”
Jesus Christ. Is this where we’re at now? Paid Boris cheerleaders threatening journalists who ask questions he doesn’t like?
One of the most depressing things about Brexit is that anyone who happened to be on the winning side can now think they are the fucking Queen of the World and all must bow down to their nutty prejudices. Utter madness. #ThisIsNotNormal
And as if to prove my point here comes Arron “cooey I’m over here!” Banks

We all know #ThisIsNotNormal. 💯
Some folks are saying it may never be normal again. 🙄

But I'm gonna let you all in on a secret.
Are you ready?

Our "normal" was hot garbage.
No, really.
Hot. Frelling. Garbage.

Let's review, shall we?

<thread> It's going to be too easy for things to start feeling normal—especially if you are someone who is not directly impacted by his actions. So keep reminding yourself: this is not normal. Write it on a Post-It Note & stick it on your refrigerator, hire a skywriter once a month, tattoo it on your ass. Because a klan-backed misogynist internet troll is going to be delivering the sotu. And that's fucked up. - John Oliver
"Normal" gave us a Republican party that flatly refused to work with President Obama. On anything. At all. Ever.

Think I'm exaggerating?
Two words: #MerrickGarland.

McConnell sat on a vacancy in the highest court of the land for a year.

And it was so "normal" we did nothing. Gorsuch arrives at a SCOTUS seat, in which President Obama's nominee is bound & gagged, saying,
"Normal" gave us 60+ votes to repeal the #AffordableCareAct. Heck, it gave us the ACA passing with zero GOP votes.

That's not hyperbole, folks.
The 1st House vote, ONE Republican.
The Senate vote, ZERO Republicans.
The final House vote, ZERO Republicans.

Sometimes @realDonaldTrump doesn't get enough credit for being transparent about his secret dealings with Putin, including this week's meeting in Helsinki. 1/
Consider this eye-popping exchange with Sean Hannity on Monday about teaming up with Russia on terrorism and to stop “proxy wars.” foxnews.com/transcript/201… 2/
Trump’s answer makes it clear he’s talking about teaming up with Russian in the Middle East and Syria where, U.S. and Russian interests are, putting it mildly, far from congruent. 3/

Once again: Trump is parroting Kremlin talking points. Who on earth could have planted this riff in his head about tiny Montenegro possibly starting World War III? #ThisIsNotNormal 🤔1/
Trump was asked by Tucker Carlson: "Let’s say Montenegro — which joined [NATO] last year — is attacked. Why should my son go to Montenegro to defend it from attack?” 2/
Trump responds: "I’ve asked the same question. You know, Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people… they might get aggressive, and congratulations, you’re in World War 3." 3/

1. I will gladly risk federal prosecution/public execution if #militaryparade happens. I'll have my own little Tiananmen square - stand in the route, find out if @POTUS will kill citizens for their beliefs.

I'm not fucking around. Save the date. I've finally had enough.
2. I will fight with every muscle, sinew and bone I have. I will not allow a fundamental hallmark of our democracy - and generations of foreign policy - be snuffed out by a @potus who has absolutely no respect for himself, the people, or the office. #militaryparade
3. I spent my youth fascinated with the idea of how a nation so powerful, so strong could stand up and be strong without use of the United States Military demonstrating their loyalty to the @potus #militaryparade

1) WHY WOMEN KEEP SILENT

So, I was raped when I was about four. It never occurred to me to say anything until I was about eleven.
2) At four, I didn't know what the term rape meant; I knew what had been done and that it wasn't right but who would I tell?? I was ashamed.
3) I remember thinking I'd be mortified if my parents ever found out I'd been a "participant" in this lewd act. God forbid they found out.
