When of course the child desperately needs to be held. This is one more consequence of an mind-bogglingly cruel policy of separating children from their parents. This is brutish behavior.

Trump is distinguished not just the immensity of the damage he has caused, but by the speed with which he's done it. Another two and a half years is a frightening, sobering thought.

STOP WRITING HEADLINES OR TWEETS LIKE THIS. This is exactly the opposite of the main conclusion of the report. When someone says something that is misleading or untrue, you need to include that in your tweet or headline. That's more important than being first to report something.

Nevada solar contracts set a new record, about 2 cents a kilowatt hour. Five years ago people thought prices wouldn't get this low till 2050. Let's do this.

Oh my!! Oh my!! The American Medical Assn votes to divest from fossil fuels! The AMA "is saying to the dirty fuels industry what it said to tobacco a generation ago: You are killing our patients and we will not allow it anymore.”

Note to news media: there is no North Korea "deal." If you use the word "deal" you're spreading Trump propaganda. A deal has terms, requirements, dates, numbers, specific consequences for violations of the deal. The last time Trump made a deal was his deal with Stormy Daniels.

This is delusional. N Korea hasn’t given up a single nuclear weapon. Threat remains! You’re the one who’s given in by ending military exercises (“war games”) with S Korea, taking sanctions pressure off and legitimizing N Korea on world stage, as I argue:

. claim there is no longer a NK nuclear threat patently false. The summit changed nothing. Worse yet, overselling the summit makes it harder to keep sanctions in place, further reducing pressure on NK to reduce (much less give up) its nuclear weapons and missiles
