Update: The LA County Sheriff’s Dept. falsely claimed that @josie_huang didn’t identify herself as a journalist.

“Huang told deputies at least FIVE separate times that she was a reporter and @KPCC staffer in less than a minute” (emphasis added) laist.com/latest/post/20…
The LA County Sheriffs Dept. claimed @josie_huang “ran towards deputies.” The video shows she didn’t.

They claimed she “ignored repeated commands to stay back” and “interfered.” The video shows she wasn’t, and that they shoved her within 2-3 seconds of shouting “back up.”
(This is distressing)

The LA County Sheriffs Dept. claimed @josie_huang “did not identify herself as press.”

The video shows she immediately and repeatedly told them (and literally screamed) that she was a reporter with @kpcc. She also had press credentials around her neck.
More disturbing audio and video which shows LA County sheriff’s deputies damaging @josie_huang’s phone.
The takeaway: these two tweets are absolutely untrue.

The amount of hate and misogynistic abuse Josie is receiving on this website (mostly based off the false narrative constructed by this account and the Sheriff’s Information Bureau) is disgraceful.
This footage from a different angle is even more horrifying + shocking.

This is a real article from the @WSJ:

TRUMP HAS ASKED ADVISERS WHETHER THE U.S. CAN ACQUIRE GREENLAND - DOW JONES, CITING SOURCES

Uh...

“Mr. Trump has, with varying degrees of seriousness, repeatedly expressed interest in buying the ice-covered autonomous Danish territory between the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans.” wsj.com/articles/trump…
“Some of his advisers have supported the concept, saying it was a good economic play, two of the people said, while others dismissed it as a fleeting fascination that will never come to fruition.“

So they’ve had conversations about it. Omg. wsj.com/articles/trump…

Excerpt from Trump's SOTU: "Together, we can break decades of political stalemate. We can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future. The decision is ours to make."
Trump will say: "No issue better illustrates the divide between America’s WORKING CLASS and America’s POLITICAL CLASS than illegal immigration. Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards."
Another excerpt, this time on infrastructure: "Both parties should be able to unite for a great rebuilding of America’s crumbling infrastructure."
