1/Jeremy Bash, former DOD & CIA under Obama, said tonight that if #Mueller talked to Michael Cohen for >50 hrs (as reported by Emily J Fox @ Vanity Fair), Mueller's looking into Trump's personal financial history far beyond his campaign. For instance, he's asking if Russia funded
2/Trump's real estate dealings, and, if so, for how many yrs. And that, Mueller's looking deeply into the Trump Org's financial dealings, again, with Russia. To what degree was/is Trump a foreign operative? #TuesdayThoughts
3/ NB: Vanity Fair is reporting that Cohen has spoken with Special Counsel from Mueller's team and also from the SDNY and possibly another, which is unnamed. vanityfair.com/news/2018/10/m…

The Unknowable Fallout of China’s Trade War Nuclear Option nyti.ms/2C53xYr
2/"It is often called the nuclear option. In the trade war between the United States and China, economists and investors have long tried to game out how both sides might use their clout. In virtually all the predictions, at least until recently, they revolved around a tit-for-tat

Analysis | The Finance 202: Trump's economy means soaring deficits, too (too long to thread, but a worthy read) #TuesdayThoughts washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost…
2/"As most of America was glued to the final twists of the Brett M. Kavanaugh vote last Friday, the Congressional Budget Office dropped a whopper of a report. The United States federal government ran a deficit of $782 billion in fiscal 2018, the CBO said, the highest since 2012

Some #TuesdayThoughts. It has been thoroughly frustrating trying to reach these people. They do not respond to reason or evidence and they absolutely will not be swayed until they are ready. Make your peace with that and let's get back to work. #BeAVoter #VoteBlueAndBringAFriend
An anguished question from a Trump supporter: "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?"

The serious answer: Here’s what we really think about Trump supporters the rich, the poor, the malignant & the innocently well-meaning, the ones who think and the ones who don't...
That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought "Fine."

That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, "Okay."

Dear @SenatorCollins - I'll tell you why I waited to report a coworker who touched me inappropriately, and why reports of harassment and assault can have "odd timing". 1/12 #MeToo #Kavanaugh
At an event for a coworker who was leaving the company, I was chatting with a married male coworker. Suddenly his hand was up the back of my blouse, almost touching my bra.

I froze in shock for a second, then backed away, stammering "What are you doing?" 2/12 #TuesdayThoughts
He smiled and said "nothing". I walked away and joined some other coworkers. He stayed away from me after that.

I told my boyfriend about it, but decided not to report to HR for several reasons. 3/12 #RoyMoore

“It has a huge mushroom head… I lay there, annoyed that I was getting fucked by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart... It may have been the least impressive sex I’d ever had..." - @StormyDaniels about Trump's dick.🤣

For reference: here's the "mushroom character" (Toad) in Mario Kart. 🤣🤣🤣
If anyone doubted that Trump had a tiny, mangled peen, this should put your doubts to rest and give you nightmares forever. 🤣🤣🤣

You're welcome. 😇😇😇 #TuesdayThoughts #TuesdayMotivation

#TuesdayThoughts on #ADHD. Today – ADHD and #Anxiety. Anxiety is a major problem for many kids with #ADHD. Kids with ADHD often seem fearless, but many kids with ADHD struggle with anxiety. THREAD 1/
There is actually a lot of overlap between ADHD and anxiety – both can lead to inattention, restlessness, and irritability. 2/
About 30% of kids with #ADHD also qualify for an anxiety disorder. But even kids without anxiety disorders often have problems with anxiety and worrying. But why do kids with ADHD have problems with anxiety? 3/

Holy crap. 🔥

When a POTUS' "closest aides" have to steal papers off the Oval Office desk so the President doesn't get us into a nuclear war, that's when you know it's time for the #25thAmendmentNow. #TuesdayThoughts
"He's an idiot. It's pointless to try to convince him of anything. He's gone off the rails. We're in crazytown," Kelly is quoted as saying at a staff meeting in his office. "I don't even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I've ever had."cnn.it/2LWPxS6

If you ever wondered what the US Senate would look like if run like the City of Miami, then watch the Kavanaugh hearings.

No documents.

Rushed process.

The Senate should never vote on a #SCOTUS candidate without full vetting.

#Republicans don't want that.

Senator @amyklobuchar: Nobody can review 42,000 records about Brett Kavanaugh in one evening. We got them last night.

For reference: I got 50,000 records from @CityofMiami in public records litigation, only about 5,000 were relevant, and it has taken me 4 months to review it.

Holy shit, the Democrats came out and moved to adjourn the #KavenaughHearing IMMEDIATELY.

I've never been prouder to be a Democrat. Never.
Finally some TEETH on this dog.
The Democrats are united to adjourn the Kavenaugh hearing immediately.
There are cheers in the gallery.
