If Liz Cheney is defeated today, as expected, I would not frame it as her losing. It is a loss for Wyoming, the Republican Party, and the nation.

The "I'm uncomfortable w/Trump but fine w/DeSantis" wing of the GOP is more dangerous by far than the "I'll-stick-with-the-felon-in-chief-to-the-bitter-end" wing of the party. Trumpism without Trump is just a more refined/pernicious form of white Christian nationalist fascism.

Heard a clip from Trump's newest attorney today on the @majorityfm show and I felt like her big point went right past @SamSeder. In their world, Obama just didn't get caught, he was above the law, because nobody could touch the first black president, they were afraid to.

Extremely dark abortion news is just pouring out today. Now a Louisiana woman says she's being forced to either carry a fetus to term that is missing its skull and part of its head, or travel to Florida for the nearest legal abortion. jezebel.com/louisiana-woman-…

Trump Mar-A-Lago Extortion Files Thread 1/ Lost in the noise of the parlor game of #RatBingo - who is the Mar-A-Lago informant, and serious national security threats of Trump espionage, is a huge bombshell story: FBI seized Trump's extortion files too. This Thread looks at that

Florida is forcing a 16-year-old girl to have a baby because they say she is not mature enough to have an abortion. Let that sink in.
Florida appeals court affirms an order prohibiting a parentless 16-year-old from terminating her pregnancy on the grounds that she has not proved she is mature enough to get an abortion. So the state will force her to have a child instead. s3.documentcloud.org/documen…

🚨A new poll shows me ahead of Rubio 48-44. I’m grateful for the support I had before any of the polls showed that we can win this race. Together we will flip Florida blue.

I’m hearing from teachers across the state and starting to smell a rat. Schools who can’t find qualified staff are going virtual for some classes. Some of these virtual ventures are for-profit and raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars in public tax money. Hmmm…

SCOOP: The 2022 @NBA schedule will show NO Election Day games. Instead, all 30 teams will play the Monday before on a themed “civic engagement night,” to encourage fans, players and staff to vote in this year’s midterm elections. (More on @NBCNews)

Florida... What the fuck? 16 year old girl wants an abortion, nope, too immature to make that decision, but definitely mature enough to have the baby? @AmandaMarcotte was right, they think raising a kid is easy and stupid, because it's "women's work"
A Florida court has denied a parentless 16-year-old permission to have an abortion because she's not "mature" enough. Previously, they denied a 17-year-old an abortion because her GPA was too low. The state is forcing these teens to give birth. jezebel.com/florida-court-de…

Not mature enough to keep her life as it is, but mature enough to be a mother before she’s ready. Sure.

📺 WATCH: Marco Rubio has one of the worst attendance records in the U.S. Senate. And when he finally shows up to work, he votes against lowering costs for Floridians. Let’s send him home.

1/28 Putin's war with Ukraine has been going on for 6 months now. From Day 1, Western leaders firmly stated  that Putin's oligarchs and bribe-takers would face imminent sanctions and wouldn’t get away this time. But they did. This is a rage thread about almost nothing being done.

Trump LOST the House, Presidency AND Senate. Banks cut ties. Accountants quit. PGA said no to his club, so he went with the Saudis. Brand is worthless. Company, CFO indicted. Thrown off Twitter and FB. Platform failing. Owes everyone. Sued by everyone. Wait - there's more ...

Trump’s legal team essentially paid experts to hack into Georgia’s election system and copy data? Am I reading that correctly? “A team of computer experts directed by lawyers allied with President Donald Trump copied sensitive data from election systems in Georgia.”
NEW🚨: Under subpoena, computer experts turn over docs showing Sidney Powell and an attorney for the Trump campaign directed and paid for them to copy election system software in Georgia, Michigan and Nevada. By @emmersbrown @jonswaine @AmyEGardner & me. washingtonpost.com/investiga…
