Wait. Are my kids supposed to have their own @YouTube channel? All they watch are other kids their age playing with toys. Is this a parent-fail that they don’t? *Don’t judge me for the dinner screen time.

We can’t take Covid chances going into Winter and with new variants forming. Air travelers should be required to show proof of vaccination. #NoShotNoSpot

This is heartbreaking. Retired Officer Kevin Nishita was murdered while protecting a @kron4news crew from an armed robbery. Nishita served many police agencies, including CA-15’s @HaywardPD. May he Rest In Peace and his killer meet justice.
We mourn the loss of retired police officer Kevin Nishita who honorably served our Bay Area Community. He was protecting/guarding a local news crew when he was senselessly murdered. Today, we escorted his body from the hospital with full law enforcement honors. 🙏

This is the future of the House Republican Caucus all hate and trashiness. @GOPLeader fears the trash caucus, and will do anything to keep their support.
Lauren Boebert once again lobbed a homophobic attack toward Pete Buttigieg saying he’s “still at home trying to figure out how to chestfeed.” That’s one more bigoted comment from Lauren Boebert at the same event where she attacked Ilhan Omar with anti-Muslim rhetoric.

Friday night favor. DO NOT RETWEET this video of @GOPLeader McCarthy blaming Trump for January 6. Trump’s Starburst Sorter has had a rough week as MTG said he can’t be Speaker. Please don’t remind Trump of this.
“The President {TRUMP} bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by MOB RIOTERS.” House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy, these are your exact words. @kevinomccarthy @donwinslow @glennkirschner2 @jaketapper

A Chicago mom was fatally shot on Wednesday while visiting the memorial for her son who was killed a few days earlier, but you might not have heard about it because it’s the sort of thing that happens every single day in America. It’s long past time we did something about that.

9 in 10 Americans support the Muslim community. The small amount who don’t are some of your members, @GOPLeader. But with your silence we don’t know where you stand. Do you stand with or against Muslim hate? #CondemnBoebert
7 in 10 Americans now describe the economy as “poor” or “not so good.” That's the highest number since 2014—the last time Joe Biden was in the White House.

I represent one of America’s largest Muslim communities. We are outraged as a community not only by @RepBoebert’s anti-Muslim rhetoric but by @GOPLeader McCarthy embracing the comments. Doing nothing, McCarthy shows he is the leader of an anti-Muslim party.

Over the Thanksgiving break, Lauren Boebert said she was recently in a Capitol elevator with Ilhan Omar when a fretful Capitol police officer ran up. Lauren Boebert said: “Well, she doesn’t have a backpack. We should be fine.” Boebert then called Ilhan Omar, “jihad squad.”

If R's retake the House, they will NOT name @GOPLeader as Speaker, despite his spinelessness. They'll choose someone extremist-enough to satisfy @mtgreenee @laurenboebert @DrPaulGosar etc. Trump? Gym Jordan? Greene herself? Dems, this is a 5-alarm fire. Act like it.

Great thread from @ASlavitt on the concerns about a new #Covid variant.
COVID Update: A new variant in southern Africa has emerged & is grabbing global concern. What do we know about it? Should we be worried? 1/

This is upsetting for many reasons. Yes, it’s anti-Muslim, and @Ilhan has a young child who will see this. Even worse, this slur will inspire more death threats to Ilhan and her family. @RepBoebert should be held accountable but so too should @GOPLeader McCarthy who condones it.

Crap. I forgot to turn on #MacysParade for the kids. Was there a Spider-Man and/or Elsa appearance? Will there be one. We are in verge of going DEFCON 1.
