How about this spin: “'Certainly I'm not going to drive this country or the world into a frenzy. We want to show confidence. We want to show strength, we want to show strength as a nation. That's what I've done,' he added
'Leadership is about confidence.’ PEOPLE ARE DYING.
“We don't want to instill panic. We don't want to jump up and down and start shouting that we have a problem that is a tremendous problem, scare everybody” is how he explains the discrepancy between the remarks he made to Woodward and the remarks he made in public at the time.

THREAD: Domination-based culture is what the GOP is selling. -- As the Republican Party leans more and more into what seem to be impossibly contradictory positions, we need to understand Trump's base isn't about what's rational. It's about the visceral pleasure of domination. /1
It was repellent to me, when, during the 2016 primary, Trump created nasty little nick names for every other GOP candidate. Back then, the first time I heard him call Marco Rubio "Little Marco" I was disgusted. This was straight up playground bully talk. /2
One simple act would have changed everything in the 2016 primary. If Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz, who's wife Trump openly insulted, had walked over and punched Trump in the face on national television. But they did not. They took the bullying and Trump became president. /3

So John #Bolton's book tells us what we already knew >> Trump is a weak, lawless kiss-ass coward & an embarrassing & dangerous imbecile. That's just on China! (whose interference in the US election Trump directly asked for, like he did Russia & Ukraine)😡…
Trump was incoherent on policy, obstructed justice, & cared only about his interests Bolton says re-election calculations drove EVERY Trump decision. Well DUH! What was he thinking⁉️ That an inept self-absorbed TV hack Hannity wannabe would grow? Well, he did. Into a f*g monster.
📕John Bolton on Trump:
◾️Stunningly uninformed
◾️Manipulated by Putin
◾️Pleaded w/China for election help
◾️Obstruction of justice=way of life
◾️Intervened in criminal probes as favors to dictators

Today we need to ask how anyone could defend Trump after all he's done! Clearly, Republicans would impeach a Democrat who did far less(see Bill Clinton)

#ResignTrump #ImpeachmentDay #impeachment
He's extorted Ukraine with taxpayer money!

#AdamSchiff is a national treasure! He lays out the case for the Constitution perfectly!
#ImpeachAndRemove Trump because he will do it again! Call the Senate every day! 202-224-3121 or Please Call Congress @ 202-224-3121 or text resist to 50409 to fax them.

Someone asked "Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?"

Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England, wrote this magnificent response:
"A few things spring to mind.

Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.
For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility,
no honour and no grace - all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable,

1/ Day 30 of Trump's shutdown: Gov't workers are suffering. Trump's winning by blaming Dems for not negotiating. BuzzFeed nailed Trump for directing Cohen in illegal acts. Then Mueller made his first mistake & now both have egg on their faces. Trump wins. Enough! Resisters Unite!

Here’s Trump using cun*t in public... also fu@k, motherfu@ckers, bit@h, a$$, bull$hit, $hit, pu$$y, and saying he has “sex” in common with daughter Ivanka.

Spare me your conservative “civility.” Hypocrites all. You worship this. You are complicit.

After invoking God, the fiend says, “There’s a really hot chick in the third row... I’ll take ya back stage to meet ‘Hank’ a little later...”

More Republican “civility.” Maybe hypocrite @seanhannity should stop harassing women & keep “Hank” in his pants.

They asked the fiend what he had most in common with daughter Ivanka. Trump answered emphatically, “SEX!”

They then told the fiend his daughter was a “piece of ass.” Trump answered, “yeah.”

Here Are The Facts Of Trump's Government Shutdown… via @politicususa
On Thursday, Democrats intend to vote on a two-part package to end the shutdown. Its prospects in the Senate and with Trump were uncertain.
#TrumpShutdown #TrumpResign
The dept that oversees Customs and Border Protection, ICE, the Transportation Security Admin, the Coast Guard and the Secret Service is affected. 213K of 245K employees are deemed “essential,” so are working w/o pay until a funding bill is passed.#TrumpShutdown
Only about 340 of they 7,500 employees are working (and no one is getting paid).
“a protracted shutdown could see a decline in home sales, reversing the trend toward a strengthening market that we’ve been experiencing”

Over and over—ad nauseam—Trump promised a wall that Mexico would pay for. “100%” he said. “Mark my words;” he vowed. It was a campaign con, a rousing joke—like Trump himself. Now that the conman is president, it’s the ol’ bait & switch. Mexico who?? #ByeFelicia #TrumpResign
Trump shut down the govt over a racist campaign con. Mexico’s not paying for a wall. It’s not even a wall! John Kelly just now: “To be honest, it’s not a wall…We left a solid concrete wall early on in the administration.” What the experts said. (Not demagogues & propagandists)
So now they admit it. The “wall” is just a “metaphor,” says today’s Trump advisor @LindseyGrahamSC. The trouble is, it’s a metaphor for xenophobic racism, which is an irrational beast. So it’s never satisfied but keeps demanding more and more hate & fear

I have been so moved by the response to this tweet.

The empathy, the sympathy, the support, and the love has been overwhelming. And hardly a troll to speak of, which is miraculous in and of itself.

Thank you all. To be reminded that the idea of Community lives? Priceless.

I am home tonight, and grateful to be well, and alive.

I will not mention the name of the facility that provided my care, because it's notorious reputation lived up to expectations.

But I will give a huge shout out to the men and women who provided such excellent medical care under conditions that would probably not look unfamiliar in some developing nations.

I watched as too many people were forced to seek care from a hospital w/ limited resources.

Twas the night before Christmas and at the @WhiteHouse
Not a creature was stirring, except for one louse.

His indictments were hung by the chimney with care,
It appears as Bob Mueller was already there.

@FLOTUS was nestled all snug in her bed
While visions of divorce papers soon danced in her head

And Ivanka in her 'kerchief, and Jared in his cap,
Had just marked their spot on the big Saudi map
When on the front lawn there arose such a clatter,
Trump turned on @FoxNews to see what's the matter.

Away to the TV he flew like The Flash®,
Knocked down his putter and tripped over some cash.

Batman world’s greatest detective here with a short thread about #MattisResignation.

Mattis exited stage left because Donald sold out our allies. Donald was too stupid to see how scathing the rebuke was at first. 1/3
Mattis, understanding how much work would need to be done prior to his retirement set his last day for the end of February...

making sure our armed service members and department of defense, combined almost 3MM people) had what they needed to continue to succeed. 2/3
But not to worry kids someone told Donald that Mattis was saying he’s a Russian puppet. And immediately we get a tweet about Pat who will take over 1/1/19.

No transition. No plan. Donald sells out our allies and our service members alike. #TrumpResign 3/3

Let's take a quick look at two recent Twitter phenomena related to removing Trump from office: the hashtag #TrumpResign and a petition created by @NeedToImpeach (example tweets for each shown below).

cc: @ZellaQuixote
First up, #TrumpResign. This hashtag calling for Trump's resignation has been trending for a little over 24 hours. It has resulted in over a million tweets (including RTs) and shows quite a bit of variety.
The @NeedToImpeach petition trend is rather different. The tweets are largely identical, due to being generated by clicking a button on the petition website. There are also fewer of them (374 original tweets from 372 unique accounts at the time we checked).

Ok, this is about to get super personal. How does the #TrumpShutdown affect me, one of those federal employees living paycheck to paycheck? Let's break it down. *all numbers have been rounded for the sake of this exercise
long thread ahead 👇👇👇 sorry folks, America's closed. moose out front shoulda told ya
I get paid biweekly and the shutdown *shouldn't* impact my next paycheck, except that it won't include pay for today. Not knowing when I'll get paid after that makes life extremely difficult. 💸
I currently have $300 in the bank and live in a pretty remote village of about a dozen people. My closest grocery store is 2 hrs away by snowmobile, while my doctor is 2 hrs by snowmobile plus 2 hrs by car.

No wall now when Republicans control the House, no wall ever. No wall, no Trump second term. No Trump knows this, the Democrats know this.

There will never be a wall. #TrumpResign #TrumpShutdown
"He has never been a dealmaker. That wasn't his expertise before he went into politics. And it's obviously not his expertise now. But you have to get the people in the room, and you have to get a deal that's good for everybody and good for the country."

Ever since the Cambridge Analytica cataclysm, the Mercers have gone silent, cut funding, and hope to be forgotten. Good luck with that. #TrumpResign…
Thought Experiment: Imagine if Robert Mercer had not invested in Brexit and Trump but had simply enjoyed the tranquil solitude of his train set and poker hobby instead. Now visualize the UK and US not teetering on a precipice over the abyss.
“He's out,” said a former associate of Mercer. “He’s not going to play any major role going forward. They’re tired of the attacks from the Democrats and the media constantly ganging up on them.”

So be docile Democrats so oligarchs can own everything because
individual liberty.

1/ Rachel Maddow at 6:55 pm PDT on 10/31/18 is reading on air the findings of the grand jury that investigated Watergate and Richard Nixon's role in it. These documents have been sealed for 44 years. They provide a "roadmap" for how information about the criminal acts
2/ of a sitting president should be handled. Because the grand jury was concerned that a sitting president could not be indicted, the "roadmap" provides for the sealed findings of the grand jury to be delivered to the judiciary committee of the House of Representatives.
3/ This allows the House of Representatives to serve as the "court" that judges the criminal acts of a sitting president which the House does in the context of impeachment proceedings. According to Rachel, the Watergate "roadmap" has been unsealed to serve as the "roadmap" for

I want to give an update about the story referenced in my 8/17 tweet. I regret I can't reveal more yet due to its hyper-sensitive nature. Tho I've been working primarily w/ one national media outlet, several are excited at prospect of reporting on it. 1/3
There are a lot of moving parts & we're not quite at the finish line, but this story will be ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING to @realDonaldTrump. I truly hate being a tease, but it's generated so much interest that I felt I needed to provide some sort of an update, albeit w/o details. 2/3
Please rest assured that a lot of folks are working very hard to put the final touches on this. I hope this story will break soon, at which point you'll all understand the reason for the delay. Trust me when I say it will be worth the wait! 3/3

While not the actual words of the good Doctor, he definitely captured the essence, and of course the truth to the absurdity of the world we live in.
The man in the Oval Office fucks pornstars, lies more times in a day than most politicians do in their political lives, is (contd)
openly hostile to our longest allies, and whether Republicans want to admit it or not committed treason by soliciting himself, the Republican Party, and the Presidency of the United States to a hostile power that we have been belligerent towards for the better part of 70 years.
