When people talk about the impact of Brown vs. Topeka Board of Education, it often elides that that Supreme Court case bundled up SCOTUS challenges to segregated schools in 4 states and DC.

Hi @PatToomey - did you miss before the election when Trump responded to a plot to kidnap, rape, & kill the Michigan governor (& bomb first responders) by saying "I mean, we'll have to see if it's a problem. People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn't"?
Did you miss when he was asked to condemn the Proud Boys, a violent white supremacist group that actively participated in the attack on the Capitol, and responded by telling them to "stand by"?
Did you miss how even after the plot against Governor Whitmer, Trump told his followers to lock them all up?
