I have no faith that Democrats will have the stomach for this, but I agree: If Biden wins, there needs to be a full accounting and fumigation of the corruption Trump unleashed. The failure to do this after Bush is likely why we're in this position. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/08/05/if-biden-wins-post-trump-corruption-purge-will-ha...

Doug Ford is ignoring parents & educators worried abt his bargain-basement  #onted back-to-school plan. “A lot of people out there are saying ‘great plan... the best plan in the country’,”  @Doug Ford said. I think he’s making stuff up. Parents & educators, what do you think?

For far too long, the  @NRA has held politicians hostage to put the profits of the gun industry before the safety of our kids. I’m glad the  @NY AG James is taking the steps needed to hold this corrupt & dangerous organization accountable.  #DissolveTheNRA https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/06/us/new-york-attorney-general-sues-nra.html

B.C., Ontario demand Ottawa force airlines to provide complete passenger info for contact tracing http://dlvr.it/Rd54xY

Yesterday Doug Ford said his half-baked back-to-school plan wasn’t his government’s plan. Today Ford said it’s their plan, it’s the best plan in Canada, and that he’s hearing from his MPPs how phenomenal the plan is. Meanwhile parents and teachers are deeply concerned.  #onpoli

I know Premier Doug Ford is busy on his summer campaign tour, but did he ever get those air conditioners put into Long Term Care facilities like he promised? Did he get the iron ring around them? Has he read the staffing report by the Ministry of LTC yet?  @Doug Ford  #onpoli

Very impressive:  @Vivian Yee is injured in Beirut blast and still manages to file: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/04/world/middleeast/lebanon-explosion-beirut.html

According to the files on his site, Young is suing Trump for copyright infringement, noting that Young "in good conscience cannot allow his music to be used as a 'theme song' for a divisive, un-American campaign of ignorance and hate." https://bit.ly/2Po9chZ

If Oxford University's vaccine proves effective against covid-19, AstraZeneca, a British pharmaceutical company, have said that making each dose would cost about as much as a cup of coffee. From July https://econ.trib.al/ZTf8zmS

If making $600/week on unemployment is more than some people earn working their full-time low-wage jobs, the problem isn't the unemployment. The problem is that we, as a nation, have been OK with our neighbors working for poverty wages while corporations & CEOs pocket billions.

BREAKING: Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds just restored voting rights to tens of thousands of Iowans with former convictions by executive order. This comes with no requirements to pay off fees and fines.

Full disclosure: I love this man.

It's unbelievable to hear my Senate Republican colleagues, most of whom are millionaires, complain that unemployed workers getting UI are making too much money.

$600 a week is one of the only lifelines keeping millions from going into poverty or losing their homes. #SaveThe600

A “bug” in Instagram’s hashtag function favors Trump over Biden. It is a remarkable cooncidence that every asymmetry on FB and Insta favors Trump and his allies. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ryanmac/instagram-related-hashtags-favoring-trump-over-biden

I often tweet about states struggling so now, a wonderful success story: New York Doing 67,000 tests a day Finding 670 cases a day 1% test positivity This is South Korea level. And its awesome Transmission levels so low NY can, with proper precautions, open schools safely

Tonight people in Beirut are going to sleep in shattered homes, during a deadly pandemic, with a collapsing economy led by corrupt politicians, surrounded by countries that have attacked & threatened them and a world that has abandoned them and their refugees. They deserve better

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke on the album that changed his life - https://faroutmagazine.co.uk/radiohead-thom-yorke-favourite-album-of-all-time/ via  @Far Out Magazine

Shocked & appalled—I just left a 90 minute classified briefing on foreign malign threats to our elections. From spying to sabotage, Americans need to see & hear these reports.

Pretty nauseating how easily Congress rubber stamped a $4 trillion dark slush fund for Wall St as “COVID relief,” yet somehow $600 for workers in pandemic is controversial. Up close it’s staggering how much resistance there is in Washington to actually helping people directly.

 @brendan mcsomething  @Litrik De Roy  @Veep  @Axios  @Jonathan Swan This is better though

Trump's latest interview vs monty python parrot sketch

Louis DeJoy, the Postmaster General, is a huge trump donor who owns $75M in assets of USPS competitors. He is trying to KILL the Post Office. PASS IT ON.

Kodak (yes, the film company) got a big government contract to make generic COVID-19 drugs. Surprise:  @Kodak’s trading volume spiked before the announcement. Even Kodak’s chairman bought stock. I want the SEC to investigate for possible insider trading. https://www.rollcall.com/2020/08/04/warren-asks-sec-about-insider-trading-in-trumps-kodak-pharmaceut...

I feel like a broken record on this: There is zero chance we have results on the night of 11/3 — every single campaign should be planning for a longer wind down & every media outlet should be thinking “what stories I can tell that won’t undermine the democratic process”?

.@BarackObama knows that we need a strong grassroots movement to defend and expand our House majority. I’m thrilled to have his endorsement.

Instead of investing in their workers’ safety,  @Smithfield Foods ran a full-page Sunday  @The New York Times ad – whining that they’re being treated unfairly after they rigged the rules to exploit the pandemic and put thousands of lives at risk. Well boo-hoo, Smithfield.

Trump said the Democrats want to stuff the relief bill with all kinds of extras and NOT ONE reporter says "Wait a minute, Mr. President, you want a new FBI building and 300 million to redecorate the White House. How can you accuse the Democrats of what you are doing????

Lets be clear. Bcs our media isn’t Corey Hurren, drove his truck through the gates of Canadian PM’s residence, carrying guns, intending to kill him. He didn’t care if Trudeaus 3 young kids & wife were home either. He’s no hero, he’s a warped domestic terrorist w a friendly face.

Donald Trump has not failed on his own. Mitch McConnell and Republicans have been right by his side since he was sworn in—enabling his corruption, emboldening his ego, and eroding our democracy. We have to hold them all accountable in November.

It’s honestly hilarious that this is the guy who supposedly wants MORE debates

.@jonathanvswan: “Oh, you’re doing death as a proportion of cases. I’m talking about death as a proportion of population. That’s where the U.S. is really bad. Much worse than South Korea, Germany, etc.”

@realdonaldtrump: “You can’t do that.”

Swan: “Why can’t I do that?”

The President Of The United States is officially under criminal investigation for bank and insurance fraud. Let that sink in.
