While PPP was supposed to be “first-come-first-served,” Trump's digital agency Phunware, which made millions in revenue from Trump in 2019 and 2020 received $2.85M in PPP funding, more than 14 times the average PPP loan. But #LetThemEatCake…
Even as the PPP website kept crashing this spring, Trump magically steered $55 million FEMA dollars to a bankrupt company with zero employees while GOP donors scored $569 million with a vastly overpriced bid to “Build the Wall.” But #LetThemEatCake…

@ZevShalev 1/ Just what every Postmaster General needs...a 24-carat gold staircase. Absolutely obscene. Think of slave-conditions required to mine, process, deliver that gold to Greensboro. #LetThemEatCake
Did Senate confirm DeJoy? Unable to verify yes or no. (more)
@ZevShalev 2/ Wikipedia:
"The postmaster general is now appointed by 9 'governors', appointed by the president w/the advice and consent of the Senate"
Senate approved all 6 USPSBOG members, most recent confirmations in Jun 2020.

@ZevShalev 3/ #CommanderInCheat had opportunity to shape USPSBOG to his liking because as of Dec 2016, there were exactly zero board members. A single Senator held up confirmation hearings for President Obama's 5 nominees. (more) h/t @clearing_fog

1. Alaska @SenDanSullivan on the Senate floor likely loses his seat over the impact on the @USCG. He has to vote against @POTUS or should pack up his stuff because he's not going to win in 2020. Alaska will turn blue. The GOP is trying to use it as leverage but it won't work.
2. @tedcruz next steps up to be heard. Looks like he's auditioning for a part in the road show of #Wolverine. Working hard to pretend to be a Hominid wearing a suit that's two sizes too small. What a show. Looks like there's plenty of grub a the Cruz home. #LetThemEatCake @gop.
3. Colorado's Democratic @SenatorBennet bringing it on the floor now. I'd sign him up for Iowa. Passionate, articulate. Life of public service. Young enough to survive the job. If he'll protect the Kurds sign me up.

it is not that she doesn't get it. it is that the disconnect is light years apart. she isn't capable of understanding thst we 👀 see her. she, the rest new this was coming, but she didn't head, or fully grasp what she knew. 'we are having an info war,
and we are losing.' yes. yes, and you lost!' we 👂her make the statement, but she doesn't think it pertains to her. she really loves herself. she is walking denial. she sought consolation from the De La Renta's after she lost. Yeah, that is totally something
us average folk completely relate to. Elites consoling elites. What in the world could Oscar offer her, other then more out -of-touch reasons. 'There there. You are still rich, and haven't been thrown in jail. The people still love you.' She is beyond fixing.
