Captured today at 10:45am — @TedCruz on a commercial flight, refusing to wear a mask.

Things taking my energy: Helping my children weather the pandemic and thinking about them missing school Caring for  #COVID19 patients and watching some of them die Training the next generation of  #FM4MN Things that are exhausting: Convincing people this is not a  #CovidHoax

👋Hey Minnesota, wear a mask! The more we slow the spread, the better it is for our economy and the small businesses devastated by COVID-19. #MaskUpMN #StaySafeMN

The White House attacks on Dr. Fauci are unfair and dangerous. He's been right on  #COVID19 far more than the politicians who blame him. During pandemics, science is your guide-even if it's politically inconvenient. Covid is surging. We need to hear more from scientists, not less.

This morning I asked 9yo opinion on reopening schools.  #MedTwitter “I think some people haven’t been around kids much. We can’t always remember to be 6ft away from our friends. And then WE might make our Grandma and our teacher sick. That would be sad for us. We love them.”

I'm voting for the guy who didn't wait for 3,000,000 Americans to be infected and 130,000 to die before putting on a damn mask.

The Environmental Center is probably the second best benefit of living in  @Washington County MN (the schools are the first). Glad there is such an easy way to recycle and compost. Keep up the good mask wearing!

Thank you @BettyMcCollum04 for standing with 70% of Minnesotans who want to see the Boundary Waters protected. You are a real leader and we are so thankful for your dedication and commitment!

GOP boycotting Nike over Kaepernick = “free speech” Dems boycott anything= “suppression” I know consistency isn’t your thing, but pick a lane. Trump targeted Latinos on Day 1. Caged our kids. And you defend it. Your habichuelas probably taste like your politics anyway: 0 sazón

Me: #TropicalStormFay is dangerous & conditions are getting worse.

Donald Trump has abandoned the rule of law and made a mockery of our democracy. He truly is the most corrupt president in history. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-says-hes-looking-at-pardoning-roger-stone-ahead-of-pri...

President commutes criminal sentence of his longtime political advisor because advisor refused to “flip”

Tammy Duckworth has given so much more to our country than those who are attacking her. Loving this country isn't about loving what the president has done to it—it's about making sure America lives up to what it can be. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/09/opinion/tammy-duckworth-tucker-carlson.html?smtyp=cur&smid=tw-nyt...

The speed we went from “Teachers are underappreciated, we should pay them triple!” to “Get in the classroom and watch the children so we can get back to work, even if it kills you” is quite breathtaking.

Make it a habit: phone, keys, mask, and you’re ready to go. #MaskUpMN

It is beyond unacceptable that an officer will lose his career, and that America will lose the services of a capable and courageous officer, because of political interference. Donald Trump's disrespect for the military has no bounds. https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/08/politics/vindman-retiring-alleged-white-house-retaliation/index.html

Important testimony from @ASlavitt @PennyWheelerMD, Dr Sakina Naqvi of @md4healthequity and @jmdecubellis in Committee on Pandemic Response. They spoke of MN’s severe health inequities and the fact that the pandemic is still in early stages

Important testimony from  @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡  @Penny Wheeler, Dr Sakina Naqvi of  @MN Doctors for Health Equity and  @Jennifer DeCubellis in Committee on Pandemic Response.

State health officials say they've been hearing reports of some Minnesotans holding or planning “COVID parties.” Their quick response: Just don’t. https://www.mprnews.org/story/2020/07/08/latest-on-covid19-in-mn

Translation: Ignore the scientists who work for us and trust the reality TV star President who is more concerned about his election than your child's health

The world is in this pandemic together. Running away from the  @World Health Organization (WHO) is bad medicine against  #COVID19 . This is excellent leadership from  @AAFP  @Amer Acad Pediatrics  @ACP and the  @AMA .  @Amy Klobuchar  @Senator Tina Smith  @BettyMcCollum04 , please do something!  #FM4MN

Minnesota is counting on you. Wear a mask and protect your friends, neighbors, and community from #COVID19.

Just played a bunch of Dr. Mario. Pretty sure I just defeated more virus than Trump.  #COVID19

 @Kimi Chernoby, MD JD MA It’s a messed up system. We should be licensed in all states and not 1 by 1. We practice medicine the same in all states. We took a national board.

Your reminder that America's richest 1 percent now own half the value of the U.S. stock market. The richest 10 percent own 92 percent. So when Trump says the stock market is the economy, know who he's really talking about.

Trump knew Putin was hunting our soldiers. He did nothing to stop it. He hasn’t condemned it. And  @GOP Senators have remained silent. The news cycle may move on, but we won’t forget: Trump and his coward of Senators would rather our soldiers die than upset their boss Putin.
