๐Ÿ‘€ Independent autopsy by the family shows what we saw with our own eyes: George Floyd died of asphyxiation from sustained pressure on his back and neck.

The autopsy was done by Michael Baden and Allecia Wilson.

Benjamin Crump, co-counsel for the Floyd family, added that the two other officers who added pressure to Floydโ€™s back also contributed to his death.

Throughout this coronavirus crisis, the leader of the free world has turned the daily White House task force briefing into a rambling two-hour self-promoting rally.
๐Ÿ—ž Morgan via @DailyMail contโ€™d:

He's devoted large chunks of them to trashing the media, attacking political opponents, telling us how great he is, and re-writing history as he tries to defend all the mistakes he's made since the virus first erupted.

๐Ÿฆ  Several governors including Governor Andrew Cuomo, Governor Jay Inslee & Governor J.B. Pritzker should form a #COVID19 committee and give daily press briefings, preempting Trumpโ€™s angry outbursts, lies and dangerous #disinformation.

Every channel should carry these pressers.
๐Ÿฆ  Each governor should have their experts on standby so they can answer all questions possible.

Other governors will follow their lead and learn from their experiences.

Our governors and #WeThePeople will lead us out of this mega-crisis.
๐Ÿ“บ No network should air Trumpโ€™s bogus press conferences anymore as that just leads to fact checking, which leads to exposing Trumpโ€™s lies & odd behavior & monopolizes the news on a daily basis.

#WeThePeople donโ€™t need this type of news.

We need information we can trust. NOW!

๐ŸŽญ Why did we let this happen?

โ€œI honestly really believe that if it happened to me, it can happen to you,โ€ comedian Kathy Griffin.

Kathy Griffin was photographed with โ€œa mask with ketchup on it.โ€

A mask resembling Trump.

The photograph went viral on May 30, 2017.
๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ At the time, there was moral outrage from both sides of the political spectrum.

Both sides.

Griffin was ostracized & stripped of her ability to work.

She describes her experience in her documentary film โ€œKathy Griffin: A Hell of a Story.โ€ See it.

๐Ÿ•ต๏ธ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ In a clear abuse of powerโ€”no doubt at Trumpโ€™s behestโ€”Griffin was visited by the Secret Service, placed on the โ€œno fly list,โ€ and the Interpol list.

When she finally decided to travel, she had her phone, her SIM card and her passport routinely taken from her at airports.

It's astonishing to me that these 23 GOP House Republicans are slated to vote against impeachment on Wednesday, despite the fact that they are leaving the House after the next election.

Hard to believe that most of these Reps aren't leaving because of Trump's strong-arm tactics.
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Why not #DoTheRightThing and vote to impeach Trump before he does more damage to our country?

Why not?

You're leaving!

Trump cannot touch you anymore.

If you or your family are being threatened, get protection now.
