1/ A year ago, people across the United States & Canada were performing all sorts of wacky trick shots in honor of @ChrisSnowCGY — and to raise serious cash ($439,906) for ALS research and new treatments.

Today's as good a day as any to give: nhl.com/flames/fans/sn…
2/ @ChrisSnowCGY was diagnosed with a rare form of ALS two years ago. We all expected to be attending Chris' funeral within a year. Two years on, Chris is more alive than most of us could ever hope to be. Here's him this month on @CBSSunday:
3/ As @globemartyk recently noted, "Chris continues to work every day. He has learned to throw with his left hand, so he can pitch batting practice to Cohen, who is now nine." theglobeandmail.com/sports/hockey/…
4/ And as @KJEdelman wrote in the @DailyOrange, "There are a lot more good days ahead. That didn’t always feel possible. Not just to Chris, but to those closest to him." dailyorange.com/2021/05/chris-…

1/ Since Donald Trump left the White House on Jan. 20, @BusinessInsider has been tracking the diaspora of his top lieutenants and aides. Today, we released a searchable database of where they've all landed. businessinsider.com/trump-white-ho…
2/ It's not easy out there for some Trump alumni. Many corporations won't employ alumni of Trump's White House, so they're building a 'dumb cash' MAGA ecosystem instead, report @cryanbarber and @tomlobianco businessinsider.com/trump-alumni-m…
3/ Other Trump alumni — Cabinet members, in particular — are living their best lives in the months since they left the MAGA fold, report @rbravender and @leonardkl businessinsider.com/trump-cabinet-…

1/ A Trump fundraising triple bait-and-switch, unpacked.

This morning, Trump’s campaign sent this text message. It would appear, in a plain reading of it, that any money you donate would go toward ongoing efforts to overturn Election 2020 results.
2/ But click on the Trump fundraising text link, & you get nothing about the presidential election. Instead, you get a solicitation for the “GEORGIA ELECTION FUND,” referring, of course, to the two runoffs in Georgia that will determine the Senate’s balance of power in 2021-2022.
3/ OK, so you’re helping elect Republican senators in Georgia and preserving a Senate majority, not helping Trump fight. Tomato, tomahto.

One problem: Your donation isn’t going to the Georgia runoff.

It’s mostly going to a new Trump political committee called “Save America.”

1/ DEEEEP DIVE: How QAnon infiltrated the @GOP, leaving many Republicans leaders with a brutal choice:

1) Reject it & alienate supporters who also ♥️ Q
2) Flirt for political gain w/ a bonkers conspiracy theory about Satan-loving, child-trafficking Dems businessinsider.com/how-qanon-infi…
2/ Our investigation took weeks to report/write & published as social media cos have effectively declared war against Q.

Reporter @eliza_relman spearheaded the piece, w/ reporting from @elvina_nawaguna @KaylaEpstein @tomlobianco @angelareplica & yrs trly businessinsider.com/how-qanon-infi…
3/ If you don't read even one of our QAnon story's 4,000+ words, come for the interactive graphic that'll blow your mind. businessinsider.com/how-qanon-infi…

1/ "Abandoned in America" published 2 years ago this week. Been thinking about the people my colleagues and I met, all of whom shared endless frustration w/ a government they felt didn't care about them. All before COVID-19, all before the economy crashed. apps.publicintegrity.org/abandoned-in-a…
2/ In all, @publicintegrity's "Abandoned in America" spanned six stories, dozens of photos/videos and more than 27,000 words. It began with this soaring narrative from @suhaunah, writing from the border of Presidio, Texas, and Ojinaga, Mexico. apps.publicintegrity.org/abandoned-in-a…
3/ In this record-breaking hurricane season, @abalcerzak's story from Robeson County, North Carolina, is particularly poignant. apps.publicintegrity.org/abandoned-in-a…

“Today, we fight for her legacy.”

.@KamalaHarris fundraising this morning for the Biden campaign and @dscc, evoking the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Not long ago such political fundraising would’ve been considered churlish. We’re far past that, though. ImageImage
Fundraising message from @TheDemocrats-supporting @votevets. ImageImage
