For weeks now, I've been terrified to speak up about this. I was told I'd never work on the Hill or a campaign again if I sent these tweets. But I refuse to sit by while people like Miranda Margowsky pretend to be WOKE for clout -- hiding their own racism behind online allyship.
Dr. Andrew Thomas is a hand surgeon in Minneapolis. Years ago he was a med student @Columbia Med School. Today he’s back as a volunteer in our OR ICU pods, sleeping in his old room at Bard Hall & working on the frontlines.

@John Vance @Liz Lilley @Melissa Red Hoffman, MD, ND @Yvette WilliamsBrown @Maria J. Silveira @Kristin Edwards, MD FAAHPM Residents need to know they are empowered to advocate for and activate their patients to ask for goal concordant care. Spend time with then and learn their needs just like any other component of care. This is a team approach.
I support a ban because I have seen what an assault weapon can do to a young teenager. Blood pouring out of a young boy from a pulverized liver while we try to save his life. Then, telling his parents their only child is dead. #NeverAgain #EnoughisEnough #EndGunViolence
