We have to save ourselves & that will only happen if we work together will allies--old and new, liberal and conservative.

Also CC & others. Our process is broken. Trump is but a symptom of that broken process. Presidential elections should be about policies that impact people's lives, not a reality show.

I hope all the people involved with campaigns who have read my tweets read this. Our process is broken, and we deserve better than a reality show. CC:

That matters. Something that helps fellow human beings living in this moment. I don't know exactly what it'll be at the moment. But I know exactly what it won't be: watching the debate. So sorry

Solve the health care, climate, housing and immigration crises if we commit to working together & if we see each other as human beings, not mortal enemies. But that won't happen if we keep repeating the mistakes of the past. So 24 hours from now, I will do something

It is out of this swamp that Trump rose to power. had the bright idea to copy the reality show process that elected Donald Trump. I am a subscriber to the politics of hope; I am a believer that tomorrow can be better than today. I believe we can

And we have gotten to the point where people are actually laughing at a father and daughter who dreamed of freedom dying in a ditch. Where the cruel & inhumane conditions in detention centers are being treated as entertainment. It is a moral embarassment to our country,

The latest insulting Trump nickname that probably deeply hurts one of our fellow human beings is treated as earth shattering breaking news because drama fuels news cycles & brings in the ad revenue. The bigger the drama, the better the revenue. So Trump one ups himself. Daily.

Of our country to win his office & overwhelming evidence that he obstructed Justice landed with a thud. The printed word--the underpinning of our democratic republic--doesn't make for entertaining TV. So & others drone on about the outrage of the day.

Is sure to be an entertaining show. It is this horrendous, embarrassing process that made Donald Trump President. It is this horrendous process that caused a report that said there is circumstantial evidence that the President of the United States colluded with enemies

But the process itself has become an undignified farce. US Senators like & will share the stage with fringe lunatics like Maryann Williamson & Tulsi Gabbard. It's as if media personalities on & have decided to cast what

Thoughts on the debate & why I probably won't watch. Politics begets policies. Policies matter. From the detention camps, to preexisting conditions, to education, to infrastructure, to immigration, to foreign policy that impacts the election, who we elect in 2020 matters.

By the time Mueller testifies, it will be 17 weeks since he turned in his report, and the House will only have 11 weeks left in session this year. Calibrate expectations appropriately.

What a lawyer with more courage could have done when asked the question Sarah Fabian was by the judge: you know it is my professional responsibility to represent, and defend the government, but I cannot defend a government that devalues the lives of human beings, I resign.

It is the position you took Sarah Fabian. You like Trump are a liar.

Starting the image rehab tour a little early, since she still works there. Most of these horrible people at least wait until they’ve left office to try to convince us they were working for the greater good. 🙄🙄
