~@sesamestreet premiered about six months before I was born. I literally grew up with it. And then my children did. The Boy’s first word was “Elmo.” Some of my earliest memories are skits from the show. And that’s why we need to talk about... Roosevelt Franklin. #Sesame50
Roosevelt Franklin was a Muppet in the very early years of @sesamestreet, and he was clearly Black. Not just voiced by @hollyrpeete’s dad Matt, but meant to represent Black kids. But Franklin was seen as both too Black & not Black enough. muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Roosevelt… #Sesame50
I LOVED Roosevelt Franklin in @sesamestreet. I had his album (judge me not). And even though he was purple, I identified with him. I KNEW he was Black like me, even at 5. One could also say he introduced kids to hip hop. Here he is with his mom. #Sesame50

A FEMA supervisor ripped off $32k during Hurricane Irene relief and his supervisors were well aware of it. When the Whistleblower came forward in 2012 he was fired and silenced, the way all whistleblowers were under Obama reign. It was finally investigated in 2017.
A familiar story, good people trying to point out corruption and being sh*t on instead, that’s a true legacy of @BarackObama
The report is almost 800 pages and while they admit there isn’t much they can do now they rightly felt the investigation should cover everything to encourage this not happening again. #ThanksObama

1. IRAN; A timeline for those of you conveniently absent minded of the facts.
#IranNuclearDeal #Iran #Iranian #ThanksObama #ObamaLegacy #Obama

2002- Iran was caught red-handed secretly building an underground centrifuge facility in Natanz.
2.
2009 Iran was again caught secretly building a huge underground nuclear facility for uranium enrichment.

Ask Yourself "if the Iranians had only peaceful ambitions with their nuclear program, why then hide your uranium enrichment from everyone"?
3. Heavy sanctions & UN sanctions were put in place against Iran. But no sooner were they in place, that Obama had Hillary open back channel communications through her buddy & Clinton foundation supporter, the Sultan of Oman.The sanctions ended up having no real effect on them.

📍 @tedlieu and @RepCummings have been relentlessly harping about Kushner’s security clearance but remarkably haven’t shared any outrage about report that discovered child rapists and 56 people under foreign influence were granted it during the Obama admin! #ThanksObama
Obama administration left the security clearance system in shambles, so much so that GOA broke protocol to issue a report making it high risk. Leaving a backlog of 700,000 applicants but the #Democrats are STILL spinning it about #Kushner #MakeAmericaSafeAgain
Dang it! #GAO 😂🤷🏼‍♀️

THREAD OF OBAMA SCANDALS:

1. Think Trump referring to Africa and Haiti as "shitholes" is bad? What about when Obama asked someone to pass the Poupon???
2. So what if hate crimes went up 20% in major US cities under Trump so far? Obama used to chew gum!!!
3. Trump has had multiple public disputes with grieving gold star families, but did you know Obama once saluted a military member while holding a LATTE!?!

1/ When I say that @ICEgov lies, this is not lawyer hyperbole. They lie. Constantly. In the face of evidence & good taste. Today's example:
2/ @ICEgov New England PR office released a retaliatory statement last week re: a client who was in the news. (I'm not using his name here)
3/ The statement said that he had a misdemeanor criminal record. He has no criminal record. (Here's a screencap from his MA CORI.)
