"Those for whom Grant fought didn’t forget him. When Grant died, African-American churches across the country prayed for his soul. A group of black Union veterans wished him Godspeed on his final journey...
'In General Grant’s death,' they resolved, 'the colored people of this and all other countries, and the oppressed everywhere, irrespective of complexion, have lost a preeminently true and faithful defender.'"

INSTANT CLASSIC FROM @MSNBC:

ANCHOR: "Are the people there just not worried about it? Are they not worried about their personal safety?"

REPORTER: "I haven't met anybody who is... you can see here, nobody's wearing them [masks]."

GUY ON STREET: "Including the Cameraman."
Somebody else said, "Half your crew's not wearing them" as they cut away.
In the same segment, one passerby told the Karening reporter to "go home"

“I would hate to be a giraffe with a sore throat” —Mitch All Together Hedberg
I clicked on the video expecting a Mitch Hedberg joke, but there wasn’t one, so I fixed it.
An escalator can never be temporarily out of order. It can only be temporarily stairs.

If you take the attacks on @RepDougCollins in this ad one by one, they’re pretty weak sauce.
What is the @NRSC doing trying to trash @RepDougCollins for not supporting Trump right away in the primary? Name the GOP Senators who did! Pretty short list!
This trash smear campaign will hurt @nrsc more than it hurts @RepDougCollins to be honest.

Georgians will decide who we send to the Senate. Don’t care what the @nrsc thinks.

This memorial in Tamiami Park has the names of 10,000 Cuban victims of the Castro regime etched into it.

Too bad 60 Minutes cut the worst part of what Sanders said and the. Talked over the rest.

His full comments are in the next two tweets👇
“In 1961, they invaded Cuba, and everybody was totally convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world. All the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro. They forgot that he educated their kids, gave them healthcare, totally transformed society..
You know, not to say Fidel Castro and Cuba are perfect - they are certainly not - but just because Ronald Reagan dislikes these people does not mean to say the people in their own nations feel the same way.”

Here’s what the articles of impeachment would look like if Democrats were 100% honest:

Article 1: The media and the polls promised us Trump would not be President, and they broke their promise.

Article 2: Trump uses all the mean tactics that we have a tacit trademark on...
Article 3: Trump won three states that belong to the Democratic Party

Article 4: The economy is doing great even though we promised Trump would tank it

Article 5: We’re so mad

Article 6: All our candidates are terrible and stand little chance of defeating an incumbent POTUS...
Article 7: Trump fights back

Article 8: MSM pundits have used some VERY scary adjectives to describe him

Article 9: People keep acting like Melania is as elegant as Michelle

Article 10: He’s not in any of our social circles...

MUSINGS ON IMPEACHMENT: The experts will be right today when they tell the House Judiciary Committee that the HoR can impeach the President for anything that they want. It's a political process not a legal process. In the end, impeachment doesn't really matter very much 1/7
It's nothing more than the House making an accusation. That's why the framers made it easy to impeach. No supermajority. No minimum legal standard. No objective criteria. Just a simple majority in the House of Representatives 2/7
It's easier to impeach the President than it is to pass a bill. Passing a bill requires a simple majority in BOTH houses. Impeaching the President requires a simple majority in only one house. What's playing out before us in the HoR now shows us why 3/7

If Trump gets impeached over this phone call, then all future Presidents can be impeached.
The Democratic party is way more dangerous than Trump could ever be. They’re dead set on undoing the election. They have been from day one.
-sway the electors
-emoluments
-Russia collusion
-obstruction
-whistleblowers
One desperate attempt after another to undo the election.
I mostly laugh at all the idiots, but it’s starting to piss me off. If you want to get rid of Trump, win an election! Go have a F@$&ing original idea for the first time in your life and actually win something!

Trump beat the only Demorcratic candidate he was given to beat.

Trump beat 16 Republicans by dark horsing his way to the top.

Romney on the other hand lost to Obama whose policies were THE REASON that the GOP won 1000s of races between 2010 and 2016.
Obama was very beatable in 2012 That’s why he lost two of the states he carried in 2008. Obama did not run a great campaign. He lost the first debate as bad as anyone had ever seen. It just seemed like a great campaign because Romney’s was so miserable.
So, kindly spare us all the lecture on what a winner Romney is because we were all around to seem him fumble around the MSM circuit and blow a winnable election.

I’m not gonna dog on a little girl, but it’s worth a mention that many headlines on this story felt the need to include Karen Pence’s name- just as a way to tenuously connect the horrible allegations to Trump in some way.

NEW Harvard-Harris poll:
66% say the economy is strong
(no wonder @realDonaldTrump needs to be impeached)

Thread...
Even though 66% say the economy is strong, a 42% plurality says we’ll be going into recession in 6 months.
(Well done, MSM)
Trump approval at 46% total
55% on “stimulating jobs”
54% on “the economy”
52% on “fighting terrorism”
47% on “immigration”
44% on “administering the government”
43% on “foreign affairs”

It is lazy reporting for NYT to go back to the same well over and over, but your arguments for why these people aren’t swing voters are pretty lame too.
“She voted for Trump and the Republicans again in the Midterm. This isn’t a swing voter.”

Basically, Matt is arguing that if you like Trump you can’t be a swing voter. That’s not how that works, Matt.
“Reggie has a portrait of Robert E. Lee hanging in his living room. No, Reggie is not a swing voter.”

Here a person can’t be a swing voter because there’s a picture of Robert E. Lee in his living room. Some weird assumption at play here.
