🧵 When Mitt Romney’s niece Ronna Romney McDaniel took over the leadership of the Republican National Committee (RNC) in 2017, the Republican Party was in crisis.... (1/x) Image
The election of the notorious pervert, pussygrabber, and pornstar-hush-money-paying Donald Trump had destroyed the party’s reputation as a protector of “family values.” (2/x)
Trump was a known associate of child rapists like Jeffrey Epstein and John Casablancas.

Even before the 2016 election, Trump was revealed to have hosted “wild parties with sex, cocaine and underage models” in which girls as young as 15 were "introduced" to older men. (3/x)
Where did Trump find the teens he would routinely pimp out?

A 2016 exposé by Mother Jones revealed how Trump Models routinely recruited teenage tourists from Eastern Europe, forcing them to live in cramped conditions while paying “sky-high rents.” (4/x)
As @GOPChairwoman, McDaniel had an opportunity to tackle the GOP’s pervert and pedophilia problem.

Would she:

a) Insist the @GOP reclaim its role as staunch defender of “Christian” values?


b) Embrace the "Party of Trump's" trend to sexual abuse and exploitation?

The answer is, of course, (b).

Since 2017, @GOPChairwoman has remained silent as multiple new rape, child porn and sex trafficking scandals have rocked the GOP, shocked the conscience and disgusted even the most hardened law enforcement personnel. (6/x) Image
One example: @GOP staffer Ruben Verastigui was arrested as part of a federal child sexual exploitation investigation. He wrote: “Babies are some of my biggest turn-ons.” He also discussed "in great detail" how much he enjoyed seeing children be abused and killed. (7/x)
In August 2021, @GOP strategist Anton Lazzaro was “arrested and indicted on federal sex trafficking charges for allegedly recruiting six minor victims to engage in commercial sex acts.”

Like Matt Gaetz, Lazzaro had used Fox News appearances to ingratiate himself to Trump. (8/x)
In December 2021, I interviewed @Cajsa, the Twitter user who, since September 2018, outraged by the Kavanaugh hearings, has been compiling a list of #RepublicanSexualPredators. That list now has nearly 800 names.

And @GOPChairwoman's silence remains deafening. (9.x)
Even today, as Ronna Romney McDaniel continues to bury her head in the sand about the active pedophilia and sex trafficking scandals in her own party, the GOP continues to launch outrageous attacks against Supreme Court nominee #KetanjiBrownJackson. (10/x)
The “Soft on Pedos” attacks now extend to Republican Senators including Ronna’s own uncle, @MittRomney himself, for the crime of voting in favor of Jackson’s nomination. (11/x) Image
The truth, in the upside-down world of the #GQP, is once again the exact opposite of what the likes of @MZHemingway and @RepMTG are saying.

Only one party is “Soft on Pedos.”

And the wrong Romney is being attacked. (12/12)…

1M US dead didn’t have to happen

The US having a higher death-rate-per-capita than any other wealthy nation didn’t have to happen

Trump was the worst possible President to lead America through a pandemic

By March 2020, he had already botched the nation’s #Covid19 response...🧵
February 2020 was the month in which Covid-19 “seeded” in NY, leading to a devastating first wave.

Trump spent the month golfing, holding MAGA rallies, visiting his own resorts, attending GOP fundraisers, and taking an election-year ego-stroking trip to India. (2/)
Trump lied us into a pandemic.

His failure to take Covid seriously, his failure to test, his failure to invoke the Defense Production Act, and his frequent promotion of “fairy tale” cures guaranteed that the pandemic would hit America harder than any other wealthy nation. (3/)

The Atlantic, October 2020: “Trump’s carelessness didn’t just jeopardize his own health, and that of his wife, his aides, and the Secret Service. The September 26 White House event for the Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett appears to have compromised the health of many…
important officials. ‘More than 100 people gathered,’ NPR reported. ‘Guests mingled, hugged and kissed on the cheek, most without wearing masks. An indoor reception followed the outdoor ceremony. 7 days later, at least 8 people who were at the ceremony have tested positive’….

Donald Trump, Mark Foley, Dennis Hastert, Roy Moore and Matt Gaetz were just the start… The list of @GOP and Trump-connected child rapists, sex traffickers, pedophile enablers and child porn offenders keeps growing…
In a 2015 video unearthed in 2020, Trump indicates knowledge of Epstein's rape island and smirks when mentioning Prince Andrew. 

Trump is also known to have been a frequent guest at Epstein's NY mansion, where many young girls were raped and abused.…
At the time of his death, Epstein was the world’s most high profile prisoner. Yet somehow after being arrested by Rudy Giuliani’s former law partner, Epstein died on Bill Barr’s watch after 2 guards “fell asleep” as soon as he was left alone in his cell.…

#COVID19 and kids: "This virus scares me. Some of my friends have gotten it. My grandmother got it and was really sick. I think we should all do what we can to stop this. I’m wearing my mask at school. Hope I can get the vaccine soon.” -- Jim, 14. (1/7)
Kids and #MaskMandates: "Coronavirus has hurt all of us. I hate missing school. All of us are wearing masks. Not sure when kids can get the vaccine. I hope it’s soon.” -- Lauren, 12
Kids and #vaccination: "My mom and dad think the virus is under control now. They keep telling me not to worry about it. They let me wear my mask but they don’t push it. I don’t think they’ve been vaccinated. I hope they will let me get the shot.” -- Mike, 15 (3/7)

Mark Foley, Dennis Hastert, Donald Trump, Roy Moore and Matt Gaetz were just the start……
In 2015, when Josh Duggar admitted to molesting 5 young girls, @GovMikeHuckabee said, “Josh’s actions... (were) ‘inexcusable,’ but that doesn’t mean ‘unforgivable.’”

In 2021, the child porn found on Duggar's PC was described as “the worst of the worst.”…
According to the AP, a total of 2,200 total instances of fondling and 127 instances of rape attributed to Ohio State doctor Richard Strauss have now been tallied. When a referee told @Jim_Jordan what he has seen, Jordan replied, "Yeah, that's Strauss."…
