With every petty attack on John McCain, Trump diverts attention from the fact that his budget cuts: --$1.5 trillion from Medicaid --$845 billion from Medicare --$25 billion from Social Security He'd rather keep the nation focused on his feud with the deceased than his agenda.

US Fire Pump's 20 crew members dropped everything in the middle of the night & risked their lives to help a fellow neighbor during a time of need. They represent the very best of Louisiana and our willingness to always lend a helping hand.

This is terrible. I wish there was more coverage of this unfolding tragedy. Prayers ascend for all who have seen their communities destroyed, and for those involved in the rescue efforts.

If someone tells you that a thing you do causes harm, maybe take a second to think about that rather than jumping right into defending your right to keep doing the thing? Particularly if the harm discussed includes contributing to a rise in hate crimes or other oppression?

Kamala Harris Mar 15
Today in 1965, Lyndon B. Johnson called for legislation guaranteeing equal voting rights for every American. More than 50 years later, that struggle continues. As President, I’d support making Election Day a national holiday, expanding early voting, and automatic registration.

Either Facebook, YouTube (Google), Reddit, 8chan, and other platforms take steps right now to prevent acts of hate and terror from becoming more global infotainment (with likely copycat consequences), or governments must do it. Now.

Thinking of all those in a devastated New Zealand today... at least 49 people dead after mass shootings in two mosques. We will continue to beat guns into plows and ask God to heal our heart problem... and we will honor all the lives lost by taking action to end gun violence.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Mar 7
Where’s the outrage over the 23 GOP members who voted NO on a resolution condemning bigotry today? Oh, there’s none? Did they get called out, raked over, ambushed in halls and relentlessly asked why not? No? Okay. Got it.

Trump's campaign manager, Paul Manafort, commits bank and tax fraud and gets 47 months. A homeless man, Fate Winslow, helped sell $20 of pot and got life in prison. The words above the Supreme Court say "Equal Justice Under Law"—when will we start acting like it?

Conservative views of liberals can be weird. Yes, most liberals Christians believe in God and read the Bible. We preach on the Bible. We are socially progressive *because* we do those things.
