God bless her.
My grandma, the biggest Yankee fan I know, turned 97 today. She was 2 years old when Babe Ruth hit No. 60 in 1927 and 36 when Maris hit 61. At 81, she saw A-Rod鈥檚 500th in person from the upper deck in right field. She said she slept through Judge鈥檚 60th, but she鈥檚 the best.
Are you listening, @SpeakerPelosi? While Dems are still in control of the House, please put to a vote a resolution to condemn & censure the vile bigot @RepRashida.
The outrageous progressive litmus test on Israel by @RashidaTlaib is nothing short of antisemitic. Proud progressives do support Israel鈥檚 right to exist as a Jewish and democratic state. Suggesting otherwise is shameful and dangerous. Divisive rhetoric does not lead to peace.
Republicans only care about 鈥渢he border鈥 right before an election. Remember: They just recently controlled the White House, Senate, and House for 2 years and did nothing to overhaul the immigration system.

Aaron Judge鈥檚 60th homer was always going to be special, regardless of when and where he hit it. But, for him to drill a ninth inning HR to spark a five-run rally (which culminated with a Giancarlo Stanton GS) made that about as memorable a half inning as I鈥檝e ever seen.

馃憞馃憞Chilling, incisive 馃Уon how Trump's rallies & campaign have repackaged fascism to sell to 21st Century Americans. A must read.
Re. Last night鈥檚 #TrumpRally: While often taking on the appearance of entertainment, rallies actually serve an incredibly important purpose in fascist movements, and we鈥檇 be wise not to write them off as a sideshow that can be ignored. 1/

Wake up & get out of your dream world, ignorant American voters.
Good morning. If Republicans win this fall they are going to pass a national abortion ban, eliminate the $2,000 Medicare cap on drug prices, and put a sunset on Social Security. You know why I know this? Because they keep telling us.

Right now Aaron Judge has a 213 OPS+. Babe Ruth鈥檚 OPS+ in 15 seasons with the Yankees was 209. What Judge is doing this year is what Ruth looked like in his Yankees career, relative to the rest of the league. Wow.

...Which is why they won't get to the WS no matter how many HR Judge hits.
The Yankees don鈥檛 have a closer.

If you鈥檙e ever at a cocktail party with a few MAGA people, remind them that from 2016 to 2018 the Republicans controlled the White House and both houses of Congress and did nothing on immigration, nothing, let me say it again nothing on immigration

College football is apparently way more American than Donald Trump. Word is his Ohio 'rally' tonight is a huge failure. The biggest failure.

MA & FL have almost identical net international migration rates per 1,000 residents - the highest in the country, & almost double the rate in TX. NY & DC also welcome immigrants at higher rates than TX.

Dear everyone, this will be the 7th election cycle since Trump. Every single one we wasted money trying to get Republicans to vote against their tribe. It ain't happening. Spend the money on coalitional turnout & driving swing voters away from voting for any Republicans.

Xi so far has made the decision that he doesn鈥檛 want to get dragged into Putins invasion of Ukraine. Xi is not sending chips, ammo, weapons, etc. just profiting from lower than market prices for Russian energy. Let鈥檚 see if Putin can change his mind in Samarkand. I doubt it.

President Clinton was astonished at how much of Jerusalem Israeli PM Barak offered & was furious at Arafat for denying any Jewish connection to Jerusalem. It's in his memoir & serveral accounts by participants. Arafat chose war & terrorism instead of peace.
Yasser Arafat should have accepted Bill Clinton's deal with Israel that would have granted Palestine statehood.

I can鈥檛 believe we鈥檙e still talking about this, but my emails鈥 As Trump鈥檚 problems continue to mount, the right is trying to make this about me again. There鈥檚 even a 鈥淐linton Standard." The fact is that I had zero emails that were classified.

Normally, on Fox, Newsmax and OAN every day I watch hosts and guests call Democrats marxists who hate America, steal elections, recruit kids for sex trafficking, and want to impose a communist dictatorship. Today, I鈥檓 watching them call Biden divisive.
