According to Chuck Todd, host of @MTPDaily, this tweet is a “tell” that Donald Trump is panicked about the effort from 18 Republican Attorneys General to challenge the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in court▶️seeking to end protections for those with pre-existing conditions. #LieGate
⚡️It’s certainly not a good look for Republicans less than 3 weeks from the November Election.

▶️Neither is talking about separating more children from their parents and putting them in cages
▶️Neither is talking about stripping Social Security & Medicare programs
▶️Neither is protecting the murderers of a respected journalist, then using money as the reason and inflating the numbers while you’re doing it

🇻🇪Seems like Donald Trump is mentioning Venezuela a lot lately. Could someone possibly think that military action ("It’s a regime that, frankly, could be toppled very quickly by the military if the military decides to do that.") by the United States is appropriate right now?
💣In 2017, Trump said he was "not going to rule out a military option" in Venezuela but thanks to cooler heads—both inside the U.S. and outside—he was overruled.

businessinsider.com/trump-discussi…
🗣️Speaking at the International Association of Chiefs of Police annual convention, Trump said about #Florida Gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum:

🇻🇪"If his [DeSantis'] opponent gets elected, you'll have Venezuela—Florida will become another Venezuela, & that is not good."

🗣️When you see #RedTideRick Scott in the #Florida panhandle helping hurricane (cane-ado? hurricane+tornado) victims wearing that all-important NAVY hat, remember what he said: “I made more money selling soft drinks on the ship than I did getting my pay."

mypalmbeachpost.com/news/cerabino-…
🔥🔥As Frank Cerabino from the @palmbeachpost points out, Scott made lots of money (1970-72) from buying lots of soda before setting sail, then price gouging his fellow shipmates who were very thirsty and had no other choice.
🔥Cerabino also points out that during hurricanes, a fair amount of price gouging goes on as well.

💥Cerabino: "Because in hurricanes, people also try to take advantage of short supplies and heavy demand in various unsavory ways."

🧢So please don't fall for the Navy hat act.

SCANDAL #9
This is INSANE!!
Rick Scott is trying to RAM through 3 conservative Supreme Court justice picks BEFORE his term ends & AFTER they are forced to retire because of a mandatory age 70 limit—a window that could be only hrs. All 3 justices have opposed Scott in major cases.
👨‍⚖️👩‍⚖️👩‍⚖️All three justices: Fred Lewis, Barbara Pariente & Peggy Quince are scheduled to leave on January 8, 2019—Scott says midnight.

💣Scott's term ends the exact same day, but he believes his term officially ends the next day (1/9/19) at noon when the new Governor is sworn in.
🛑There's an intermediary step: the Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Committee (JNC) is supposed to come up with a list of replacement candidates for the three justices for the 7-member court before the decision is made.

🚅So Scott ordered the commission to start in mid-Sept!

There are lot of considerations when evaluating the amendments on Florida's ballot this year. The League of Women Voters did some research and these are their recommendations.
#FlaPol

Short thread.
Amendment 1 ❎

Oppose. The League has a position that “no tax sources or revenue should be specified, limited, exempted, or prohibited in the Constitution.”

Amendment 2 ❎
The league opposes 2 for the same reason as 1.

🙌🙌🙌You know what's going to be sooooooooooo good?!?

🔪When Trump turns on Rudy Giuliani.

🔥Can't wait.

[With Rudy Giuliani, What You See is What You Get]

Giuliani has "tragically plummeted from greatness."

theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
📃Well, that was the narrative.

💥But the article points out that Rudy Giuliani was walking the streets on 9/11 because his Emergency Center—which he insisted on locating on the 23rd floor of 7 World Trade Center—in spite of advice from the Police Commissioner was gone.
🍸There are many people who don't believe in the story that Giuliani has recently had a "fall from grace." The article quotes legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin describing Giuliani with “naked aggression and a thirst for attention.” Aggression, meaning refusal to listen to subordinates

Immigration & Customs Enforcement—more commonly known as ICE, is a law enforcement agency of the federal government of the U.S. tasked to enforce the immigration laws of the United States & to investigate criminal and terrorist activity of foreign nationals residing in the U.S.
ℹ️ICE has two primary components: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). It is an agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security and was established in 2003 following the 9/11 tragedy.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Immi…
ICE was designed to keep us safe from terrorists—for instance, the terrorists who took over the planes on 9/11 were living undetected in the U.S. for over a year.

Pls read this thoroughly before commenting. The Trump administration has corrupted this agency to do horrific acts.

The biggest Trump supporter in #Florida is the @FloridaGOP gubernatorial nominee @RonDeSantisFL.

@politicofl's @MarcACaputo reports he chose #Miami Republican Rep. Jeanette M. Nunez as his running mate.

This is what she had to say about Donald Trump: archive.is/xDsCt
It looks so nice in the original mobile format.
I guess @RepJNunez has to stop opposing the KKK to join the @RonDeSantisFL campaign?

Right @BillyCorben?
