The US and Brazil now have more cases than the rest of the world combined. What's the common denominator - they both have authoritarian, right-wing leaders who actively oppose science. Oops. It turns out facts still matter.

Trump & are risking a much bigger outbreak of by re-opening the schools. Why? Because they think people would just go back to work if their kids aren't at home. They're not going back to work because ... they were fired, you idiots. Schools are not the issue.

Trump often acts like he's not in the government, let alone leading it. You know you could have talked to them before they put out the guidelines, right? This is what happens when you don't do your homework and you have no idea what's going on inside your own administration.

This is what happens when you give into lunatics. It only encourages them. There is insane conspiracy theory involving this particular company child trafficking (of course). When they panic and pull the product, it makes the unhinged think they were right. Don't feed the trolls!

156 people have been exonerated from death row since 1973. One innocent person executed is too many. (4/6)

The death penalty is structurally racist. People of color have accounted for 43% of executions since 1976 and 55% of those currently awaiting execution (3/6)

The is NOT tough on crime, it's wrong and bad public policy - we know it in our hearts and we know more than ever also in the data and its terrible history. (2/6)

A terrible, immoral act will occur Monday in our nation. For the first time in nearly 2 decades, the federal government will carry out an execution. We should abolish the death penalty because it's racist, wrongfully executes innocent people and doesn't stop crime. (1/6)

Both sides of the cancel culture debate are elites arguing over who should have the highest paying jobs in media. I don't think either side represents all the people they claim to represent. And both sides are absolutely refusing to listen to each other.

I just explained to my 9 year-old son what was on cognitive test took. I gave him same questions. He laughed at how easy questions were. Then told him that Trump bragged doctors were surprised that he passed. He said, "That means doctors think he is dumb." Bingo!

At times MSM says we need to get behind establishment Democrats because they're just like us. Look at who refused to get Trump's state taxes. Not like us! He's Democrat who is so right-wing, Gorsuch & Roberts are to the left of him on this:

Literally no one else in Congress has protected than . Even doesn't have the power to block an inquiry into Trump's taxes as Neal did. Establishment Democrats pretend to be the & then help Trump behind the scenes.

That's not true. I've defended speech rights of , Don Imus, Rush Limbaugh and before. I think their ideas suck and are easy to defeat in the marketplace of ideas. "Canceling" objectionable ideas doesn't make them go away, much better to talk it through.

I know, it was a preposterous lie. Only someone in the establishment could get away with a lie like that. But I believe in redemption. What she said in the past was terrible but if she has truly changed her mind on that, that's terrific. Let's take the win and root for justice.

Chris Matthews couldn't stand progressives & now he's been replaced at with , perhaps only person more hostile to progressives on cable. On the other hand at least she has more minority voices on & I'm glad that she wasn't canceled over what she said in the past.
