I’m not a journalist, so I can’t say whether Maggie Haberman is doing her job appropriately.
I am a lawyer, though, so I can say her failure to report Trump’s felonies upon discovering them — saving them for her book instead — appears to be misprision, which is itself a felony.
Maggie Haberman, who is personal friends with Roger Stone and whose mom does PR for the Kushner family and the Trump org, was never seen as too “unobjective” to be assigned the most important reporting position in the country. The New York Times had no issue with it.
Please Twitter, leave @maggieNYT alone. Trump lost the election, for God's sake. If Maggie had told you a little bit more before the election (she told you A LOT, btw), what, you think Trump would have lost ... twice?
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) says she's not only against abolishing the filibuster, she's for strengthening it: "The best thing you can do for your child is to not give them everything they want... We should restore the 60-vote threshold for areas in which it has been eliminated."
The biggest NYT scandal of our lifetime - far worse than Judith Miller and Jayson Blair. Their reporter knew a year ago, and covered it up for a payday. Blame the paper. It's the publisher's disgraceful policy to allow this perfidy.
The thing about Ron DeSantis is that he’s gone out of his way to show he is even more willing than Donald Trump to engage in sadism to advance his own career. And yet there are still reporters who act like he’s a less fascist alternative to Trump.
A Democrat can’t win statewide in Texas if the Republican is getting 40% of the Hispanic vote.
It’s about the margins folks. A small marginal shift rightward dramatically complicates things for Democrats.
CHENEY: "Just set the politics aside for a minute and think to yourselves, what kind of human being does that? What kind of human being sits for 187 minutes when he's the only one who can stop it, and he knows what's happening, and he refuses to take action?"
Defeating MAGA requires world class communications skills. Governor Gavin Newsom @GavinNewsom is in the zone here.
Confronting a dangerous extremist movement in a democracy demands the ability to rally a broad majority of Americans against it. Newsom is an essential voice
.@GavinNewsom on right-wing media and empathy for MAGA supporters: "I get why people believe this stuff. They're not deplorable. The people promoting the BS are," he said. "At the end of the day, there's this quest we're all on for belonging. We all want to be loved." #TribFest22

If social security was taken away or sunsetted to be less and less, I would be homeless again. That's a fact. I paid into it for 25 years and it's all I survive on. They don't like the homeless crisis now? Watch what happens to people if republicans get enough control to do this.
Look at whom the money is owed to. The GOP gave corps, wealthy elite, etc. tax breaks. McConnell has always wanted the SS, Medicare, Military etc. money so he can put it in his pocket and force Americans to live in poverty. They do not have a plan.
I’m of an age where I can recall when Rs decried Social Security while passing laws that created 401k/IRAs and allowed businesses to terminate/reduce company pension/retirement plans. Didn’t believe/trust Rs then and don’t believe/trust them now.
