>> Two days after the Capitol riot, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs took top secret action to limit Trump’s ability to order a nuclear strike, Bob Woodward's new book says
2/ “Milley, deeply shaken…'was certain Trump had gone into serious mental decline in aftermath of the election, w Trump now all but manic, screaming at officials & constructing his own alt reality about endless election conspiracies.'
Milley worried Trump could 'go rogue’l
3/ “No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I'm part of that procedure," Milley told the officers, according to the book. He then went around the room, looked each officer in the eye, and asked them to verbally confirm they understood.”
4/ Pelosi: "What I'm saying is…if they couldn't even stop him from an assault on Capitol, who even knows what else he may do? & is there anybody in charge at WH who was doing anything but kissing his fat butt all over this. You know he's crazy. He's been crazy for a long time”
5/ “Bannon told Trump that January 6 was "the moment for reckoning."
"People are going to go, 'What the fuck is going on here?' " Bannon believed. "We're going to bury Biden on January 6th, fucking bury him," Bannon said.”
6/ "If these people say you had the power, wouldn't you want to?" Trump asked.
"I wouldn't want any one person to have that authority," Pence said.
"But wouldn't it be almost cool to have that power?" Trump asked”
7/ "No, no, no!" Trump shouted. “You don't understand, Mike. You can do this. I don't want to be your friend anymore if you don't do this."
Trump called Pence Jan 6. "If you don't do it, I picked the wrong man 4 years ago," Trump said. "You're going to wimp out."
8/ "You took away my authority!" Trump screamed at Esper in the Oval. "You're not the president! I'm the goddamn pres." But Trump wasn't done, turning to rest of his team. "You're all fucked up," he yelled. "Everybody. You're all fucked. Every one of you is fucked up!"
9/9 “This guy called me every single day, pretended to be my best friend & then he fucked me. He's not a good guy," Trump said” (about McCarthy)…Trump on McCarthy's attempts to get back into his good graces:"Kevin came down to kiss my ass and wants my help to win the House back”

Welp, it’s been a half hour and you have yet to respond to my DM. How very corporate of you.
2/ In all fairness, I just got a substantive DM from @BedBathBeyond explaining it takes 2 days to hear back, and specifically mentioned my store and that they would contact management and get back to me.
@BedBathBeyond 3/ Of course, if after a reasonable amount of time, I don’t hear back from @BedBathBeyond, I will contact the CEO. I expect them to keep their word and get back to me. If not, well, you saw my @Target letter, and @macys letter, and that Macy’s are retraining their employees now.

"The Plymouth rampage was powerful proof of the ties between hatred toward women and acts of domestic violence and eventual mass shootings."

If @Will_Bunch wrote it, you should read it™
2/ "Nor is it surprising that the young Plymouth killer would be drawn into a right-wing ideology that exalts gun ownership, a libertarian concept of personal freedom ... and Donald Trump."
3/ "Nothing fuels the id of the modern conservative more than an almost primitive fear that more power or agency for Blacks or immigrant cultures or women will end the “freedom” of white male supremacy."

JHC. >> An anti-COVID vaccine rally at Los Angeles City Hall turned violent Saturday, with one person stabbed and a reporter saying he was assaulted…
2/ “A fight erupted on the corner of 1st and Spring streets shortly after 2:30 p.m., as counterprotesters in all black and anti-vaccine demonstrators draped in American flag garb and Trump memorabilia traded punches and threw things at one another.” #ProLifeMyAss
3/ “In the melee, counterprotesters could be seen spraying mace while members of the anti-vaccine rally screamed death threats. One older man screamed “unmask them all” and clawed at a woman’s face.”

"The evidence that these voters care more about waging a culture war than what’s in their wallet is both statistical and anecdotal...Nothing matters more in 2021 than loyalty to the tribe."

If @Will_Bunch wrote it, you should read it™
@Will_Bunch 2/ "The president’s economic plan — as well as his ability to work with Republicans on a fraction of it — is exactly what he promised the electorate in November 2020 when he defeated Trump by 7 million popular votes and by 306-232 in the Electoral College."
@Will_Bunch 3/ "Even more importantly, the Biden agenda reminds us of something that can’t be stressed enough in writing about middle-class issues — that America’s blue-collar workforce is increasingly a Black and brown one."
