2/"We don’t know what’s going to happen in the election, but we’ve got a pretty good idea how it’s likely to be spun. With Republicans probably losing the House, they (and President Trump, in particular) have focused on the Senate. And if they hold it or even gain some seats, you
3/"can guarantee they’ll cite it as a win, and possibly even a split decision overall. This will be false. That pre-spinning has begun, with Kellyanne Conway noting last week that it’s rare for the president’s party to gain Senate seats in a midterm election. “Think about that.
2/"President Trump on Monday closed out an us-against-them midterm election campaign that was built on dark themes of fear, nationalism and racial animosity in an effort to salvage Republican control of Congress for the remaining two years of his term. Mr. Trump’s fiery,
3/"invective-filled campaigning produced what may be the most polarized midterm contest in modern times as he played to tribal rifts in American society in a way that no president has done since before the civil rights era. The divisions exposed and expanded over the past few
‘Twas the night before the Election,
And just like a mouse,
The Republicans were scurrying,
“We’re losing the House!”
Melania was nestled,
All snug in her bed,
While visions of “someone else”...
Danced in her head.
And Trump in his suit,
And his ill-fitting tie,
Had just settled down,
To tweet some more lies.
When out on the Front Lawn,
Arose such a clutter,
Trump sprang from the bed,
“Oh shit! Is it Mueller??”
When, what to Trump’s
Wondering eyes couldn’t miss,
But IT’S FUCKING SANTA CLAUS,
AND HE LOOKS PISSED.
Trump knew in a moment
It must be St. Nick,
“Look at those hands!
He’s got a huge dick!”
1/ I'm just sitting down to take stock of this day, & I'm going to start a list of ridiculous things the Republicans are doing as a last ditch effort-please feel free to add to it:
*GA: Kemp declares the Dems have 'hacked' the election in GA today (after a court - #ElectionEve -
2/ruling forcing him to release the 52K withheld voter registrations by midnight tonight)
*AZ: Maricopa Coutny is going to be key in the results of that Senate race, so they've just announced that they won't be releasing absentee voter results until 5pm on Thursday.
3/ 7:29pm ET: It's being reported now that the Republican House is in a state of panic & chaos. Blaming Trump, the man whom they blindly followed for the last 2 yrs-to the point of not doing their jobs at all- R Congress are saying that he 'hijacked' their election... #VoteBlue
Thread: Dear Resistance, as you've probably noticed the anxious little trolls and bots are out in full swing. This will only get worse this week.
They fear losing the midterms and they are attempting to disuade you from voting.
My best advice is do not engage. Report the accounts. Block if you wish. Again, do not engage. If you run across these accounts please let me know. I'll be happy to report them to the appropriate sources. In the meantime...
Go Vote! #VoteBlue Vote against hatred and vulgarity.
AMERICAN CARNAGE: A nationwide review conducted by ABC News has identified at least 17 criminal cases where Trump's name was invoked in direct connection with violent acts, threats of violence, or allegations of assault.
Reps of PUTIN ally OLEG DERIPASKA expect that sanctions against his COs will be lifted by the TRUMP adm after the midterms.
Also an effort to get personal sanctions against Deripaska lifted too.
📌Deripraska conspired w/ Manafort to overthrow our Democracy
Khashoggi’s fiancée says Trump adm ‘devoid of moral foundation’
Kemp in utter desperation engages in a ridiculous political stunt, accusing GA DEMs with attempted voter hack- which is a Trump like projection of which he is guilty.
1. Jesus described this #ElectionDay :
This generation...is like children sitting in the marketplaces and
calling to their companions, and
saying: ‘We played the flute for you,
And you did not dance;
We mourned to you,
And you did not lament.’
THREAD: I’ve spent the last few weeks chatting with people about the upcoming #midterm elections. I’d like to share some of what I’ve heard and why this gives me so much hope.🇺🇸
I met these young women while walking my pups in my beachside community. For privacy reasons, I won’t share their real names (let’s call them “Julie” and “Amy”), but they graciously allowed me to share their stories.
One the best parts of walking my “boys” (Bowen and Bynum) is that I get to meet lots of strangers. I mean, who can resist these two?😍
Seriously, the pups break the ice, and as a consequence, I’ve met lots of interesting people.
GOP Ron Desantis running for Gov of Florida has connections to racists, made appearances at far-right conferences hosted by extremist David Horowitz and moderated for a Facebook group full of racist vitriol.
