That awkward moment when a dyed in the wool @TexasGOP stan finds the *great* common sense the good Lord gave him & uses his syrupy, twangy drawl to speak the unvarnished truth to MAGAts who voted to close their hospitals but don’t know it b/c DT said “HOAX”. #CowsPlowsSows 🤠🔥💣
Ok, so ICYMI socioeconomic warfare is officially underway. 🤬 The battle to save the corporation that supplied the slayed-to-the-gods coats of armor to Malia & Sasha Obama’s inauguration swag is HERE. #ShotsFired #AntiTrumps #GetOnTheBattlefield #Solidarity #UniteVoteWin 👿💣🔥 ImageImage

Fellow Democrats (and anyone else for that matter)- allowing politicians to waltz into office without opposition isn't good for anyone. Speaking for myself my political views are my own and align with Dems- who I believe are dedicated to advocating for *each and every* American.
Where there is no balance there is no Justice. Where there is no accountability there is dysfunction and chaos. NO public servant is above accountability to the voters that they serve. My State Rep threatens me, lies about me and refuses to answer questions about policy.
My State Rep accuses me of "begging for money" while she's funded by a handful of VERY wealthy individuals.
She received 29 donations in 2019 and her average donation was $543. She received *4* individual donations.

I received 316 donations of which 313 were individual donors.

Despite COVID-19 deaths topping 10,000 in the U.S and case numbers surpassing 350K+, 79% of Fox “News” consumers who responded to a Pew Research survey believe the media “slightly or greatly exaggerated” the risk of the pandemic. | via @VanityFair 🦊😷vanityfair.com/news/2020/04/f… ImageImageImage
How Trump and his gang of intransigent @GOP Governors are fundamentally incapable of managing #COVID19 altruistically b/c their profit motives & false pride take top priority, but Democrats are turning the tide with science & empathy | via @RickSmithShow podbean.com/ei/pb-imrkd-d8…

Are people grasping the sheer level of unrepentant, unapologetic cowardice on display from @GregAbbott_TX and the @TexasGOP right now? 🧐 Their heads are so far up Trump’s ass that they won’t even take the “risk” of demonstrating competent leadership in a global health crisis.
Abbott thinks he’s slick and is using linguistic gymnastics & the patchwork system of local govt/states’ rights to both downplay the threat of Coronavirus for Trump *and* work behind the scenes to handle the problem internally at the same time. 😒 3/19/20: rev.com/blog/transcrip… ImageImageImageImage
These red state Republicans are talking out of both sides of their mouths on #COVID19 b/c keeping the profit margins healthy at their fave businesses and appeasing #TemperTantrumTrump are way higher priorities for them than protecting/saving lives. “Pro-life” is a habitual LIE.

Doesn’t look good for the @TexasGOP out here, I’m in a respectably long line to vote at 2 PM CT in a majority-minority district in Sugar Land. Bless y’all’s hearts. 😘 #SuperTuesday2020
Whew chile I made it out in 50 minutes. Line was just as long when I left as it was when I got there so I feel for the folk who are gonna show up after 5.... 😬
Here’s more background on how the voting process works in states that hold “open” primaries and don’t tie party affiliation to voter registration. texastribune.org/2020/02/28/tex…

#REDFLAG: Yet another stark reminder...

We must flip BOTH the Senate and the White House.
#FLAG: Which GOP Senate seats are you focused on flipping?

Which Dem Senate seats are you focused on defending?

Remember, we must #FlipItBlue AND #KeepItBlue to #FlipTheSenate!

#REMEMBER: Trump is cynically "saving" Judge Amy Coney Barrett for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's SCOTUS seat.

"I'm saving her for Ginsburg."

She is anti-choice, anti-Roe v. Wade, and against everything RBG spent her life fighting for.

We must #FlipTheSenate.

Trump and his MAGA followers like to call themselves "patriots" but in fact, this "president" and his followers do not love the United States of America, instead, they love their distorted and hateful vision of what they think it should be.
In Trump's America, there is no American Dream, the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to ALL Americans, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved. MAGA's vision includes only White Conservative Christians full of hate, anger, fear, and ugliness.
Trump fuels his base, feeding their fears, legitimizing their distortions of what it means to be American. He disparages Syrians, Muslims, Immigrants, People of Color, Women, The LQBTQ community, & incites violence against them. The GOP enable and encourage him on this mission.

Hey @GOP,

Americans rightly blame YOU, along with @realDonaldTrump, for your damaging #TrumpShutdown.

#Republicans have nearly TWICE as many Senate seats (21-12) up for re-election in 2020, and unlike 2018, the electoral map FAVORS the @SenateDems.😎

cc @senatemajldr
Key @SenateGOP seats targeted in 2020:

👉🏼@SenMcSallyAZ: ”lucky loser” to @SenatorSinema in 2018, appointed to complete @SenJohnMcCain’s term
👉🏼@CoryGardner: fear drove him to support reopening govt WITHOUT wall funding
👉🏼@SenatorCollins: MILLIONS already raised AGAINST her

2/
MORE @SenateGOP 2020 electoral targets🎯

👉🏼@SenThomTillis: NC is winnable
👉🏼@JohnCornyn: @BetoORourke showed that #TX is in play
👉🏼@sendavidperdue: Georgia gets bluer by the day
👉🏼@SenJoniErnst: Iowa FLIPPED 2 Congressional seats, now has 3 Democrats & only 1 @GOP (@SteveKingIA)

There are people who don't plan to vote in November 😠

This may change their minds:

💥GOP plans to REWRITE US CONSTITUTION💥

THEY"RE VERY CLOSE TO DOING THIS AT A #ConventionOfStates/#ConstitutionalConvention

Listen to warning from Hillary Sept 2017👇
I wish I was exaggerating...I'm not

💥We ARE 6 STATE VOTES AWAY FROM REWRITE OF CONSTITUTION💥

28 of the 34 state votes have been obtained to hold a #ConventionOfStates

w/Republican trifectas in 26 states WE NEED EVERYONE AT POLLS


#NoConCon #FlipItBlue

Yesterday it was North Dakota suppressing the votes of Native Americans.
Today it's Georgia.
#BrianKemp is the #GOP candidate for gov--and as GA Sect of State in charge of the election--and suppressing black votes.
53k registrations are at stake.
wabe.org/voting-rights-…
.@staceyabrams is not going to let it go--she's going to stop this #GOP #VoterSuppression.
Another reasons she should be governor.
Every time the #GOP tries to stop people from voting, do whatever you can to promote the Democrat who will fix it.

Thread: just a snapshot of the increasing polarisation of the US Twittersphere ahead of the midterms.

Polarised communities proved to be an easy target for influence operations in 2014-18.

medium.com/dfrlab/electio…
Scanned three sets of paired election-related hashtags: #VoteRed / #VoteBlue, #RedWave2018 / #BlueWave2018, #FlipItRed / #FlipItBlue.

First scan covered 48 hours. Overall, pro-Democratic hashtags got significantly higher traffic (79k posts compared with 47k posts).
On this scan, users of pro-Democratic hashtags were roughly double the number of users on pro-Republican hashtags (40k users compared with 21k users).

You: We’ve finally hit bottom.
Me: Oh no we haven’t.

Trump & Putin stole the presidency. Mitch McConnell is about to complete the takeover of the judiciary. The coup is nearly complete.

If they win in Nov, it’s game over. Use your time wisely the next 32 days. /1
Be prepared for a full-scale psychological assault. Trump & team have no qualms about mind-f*cking the American public if it helps them reach their goals. The core assault will be stories, messaging & conspiracy theories that cause Dem & progressive infighting. Don’t fall for it.
There is one party attacking our intelligence agencies. There is one party attacking the free press. There is one party putting kids in internment camps. There is one party hell-bent on eliminating every woman’s right to choose.

The Mother. F*cking. Republicans. That’s who.

Please help Mississippi #FlipitBlue

Spread the word. Keep Neanderthals like McDaniel out of Senate.
We know what some of you think about Mississippi, but hang in here with me for a minute & see if you change your mind.

Mississippi has many highly educated, intelligent, and extremely talented people.
MS has more rewarded, honored, and revered writers than any other state in the nation.
