COVID-19 has literally hit home. I have had NO symptoms and have tested positive.

Full story: Trump’s intel briefer breaks her silence Sanner’s comments offered a window into how she approaches briefings with the president, as questions swirl about the White House’s claim that Trump was never “orally” briefed on Russia bounty intel https://www.politico.com/news/2020/07/06/trump-intelligence-briefer-breaks-silence-349936

ICE is now trying to deport students enrolled in colleges and universities that are teaching exclusively online due to COVID-19. This is needlessly cruel and must be challenged in court.

This is bad. ICE just told students here on student visas that if their school is going online-only this fall, the students must depart the United States and cannot remain through the fall semester.

Terrific.

"White House officials also hope Americans will grow numb to the escalating death toll and learn to accept tens of thousands of new cases a day, according to three people familiar with the White House’s thinking"

Well, your Lt. Governor said older Texans would gladly sacrifice themselves for the economy. So.

How come Donald Trump only calls out Chicago? Because he’s a racist and it’s a familiar dog whistle to his base. And because 10 of the cities listed here have Republican governors - he conveniently ignores those deaths. If he cared about violence, he’d support stronger gun laws.

Dang.

Trump said, “In the fields and jungles of Vietnam, they delivered a swift and swiffian, It was swift and it was sweeping like nobody’s ever seen happen. A victory in Operation Desert Storm, a lot of you were involved in that. A lot of you were involved. That was a quick one.” OMG

We can see a lot of 'Auschwitz' mentions recently. Remember that a preserved historic site does not equal a statue erected to honor a person. The two have entirely different roles, contexts, messages & meanings. Drawing a simple comparison here is incorrect.

Ghislaine Maxwell: Honey, they're going to kill you so you may as well call a press conference and tell it all. That's what I would do.

On this date, four years ago, Alton Sterling was fatally shot by police outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge. No charges were brought against the officers. 2

Auschwitz is a memorial to victims that shows, unflinchingly, atrocity perpetrated by white supremacy. Statues of enslavers and colonizers lionize oppression & white supremacy & elide completely the atrocities perpetrated by them on human beings, cultures, civilizations.

DANA BASH: You criticized Obama for 'failed leadership' when 2 people in the US died from Ebola. Nearly 130,000 are dead from coronavirus. So is Trump showing failed leadership?

@SenJoniErnst: "No. I think that the president is stepping forward."

This is an actual person running for an actual office?

Millions each year flock to Stone Mountain, one of Georgia's most visited attractions, which memorializes three men who advanced a system of subjugation against Black people.

This monument speaks to how deeply the confederacy's legacy of white supremacy persists in our country.

The story of America is that rich white men said everyone is created equal and spent the next 250 years being surprised that people took them seriously.

Yes, I read the Bret Stephens piece. Ho hum. Yes, the intolerant left is a threat. Stipulated. However, I have excoriated people on the left for most of my career. But only opposing Trump produced harassment, demands to fire me, and death threats. Cancel culture, indeed. /1

What in hell is happening.
