Don’t sleep on November, when the days grow dark at an alarming pace (not just a 2016 reference).

Let’s not forget Moore’s many, many other disqualifications — which didn’t stop virtually the entire GOP establishment from backing him before the molestation stuff emerged. 👇

Why would this be in Trump’s interest?

With Roy Moore running for Senate again, keep in mind that Trump has “NOTHING against” this —child molester —anti-gay anti-Muslim bigot —who thinks 9/11 was divine punishment and slavery was fine for families —who was removed from a judgeship 2x for violating court orders. 👇👇

The (understandable) emphasis on Moore’s child molestation shouldn’t neglect the fact that he’s a vile, lawless bigot who was backed by nearly the entire GOP establishment against Jones until the molestation stuff emerged.

No objection to reporting on it — just to suggesting that it relates to the presidential campaign.

Perhaps Alito thought it would be “freakish” to rule in favor of a criminal when he can achieve his goals next term using a different vehicle. 👇

I’m a huge fan of your work but I would respectfully submit that, in my view, a reporter shouldn’t suggest that a story about a candidate’s relative’s personal life could harm the candidate absent any connection to the candidate or indication that voters are concerned about it.

And the last three Republican presidents had fathers who were (in order) senator, president, and real-estate multimillionaire.

Virginia should also honor those who, unlike Lee, chose to fight for the Union. Here’s my post-Charlottesville thread on one such soldier, Gen. George Thomas, and his D.C. statue. 👇👇
