My take on abortion is the same as my take on gay marriage. If you don't support gay marriage, don't get gay married. Likewise, if you don't support abortion rights, by all means - don't get an abortion. And then... Mind. Your. Own. Damn. Business. #SCOTUS #RoeVWade

SCOTUS is now the Junta. The coup is over. They're just tightening their grip on power.

The SC has now implemented a White Christian ideology in deciding major cases. This tendentious piety is tilted , subjective interpretation; deconstructing the text of the Constitution & supplanting solipsistic rendering to fit their dogma. Dangerous; judicial tyranny.

The illegitimate Supreme Court is out of touch and out of control. Clearly. And the only way to bring it back into balance now would be through an act of God or an act of Congress. #ExpandSCOTUS #ExpandTheCourt #ExpandTheSupremeCourtNow

Trump is Captain Quid Pro Quo. So if Trump or Trump-affiliated groups are paying legal fees for witnesses testifying before the January 6th Committee, you gotta know there are strings attached. And that sure sounds like witness tampering. #TrumpCrimes #January6thHearings

Stacey Abrams is tied in the polls with Kemp. Beto O鈥橰ourke is within 5% of Abbott. Charlie Crist is beating DeSantis by 1%. And John Fetterman is beating Oz by over 9%. Let鈥檚 be honest, Democrats are gaining momentum in practically every state. I see a blue wave on the horizon.

We have to codify Roe v. Wade into law. And as I said this morning: If the filibuster gets in the way, then we need to make an exception to get it done.

President Biden just endorsed changing the filibuster to protect Roe v. Wade. I wholeheartedly agree. Senators, you have the support of your party, your president, and the American people. What are you waiting for?

Glad to see President Biden is on board for creating an exception to the filibuster to codify Roe. Of course it's dead in the water with Manchin & Sinema standing in the way. We've got to elect at least two more Dem senators in 2022 to make those two irrelevant. #VoteBlueIn2022

They're not denying Trump orchestrated a violent coup. They're not denying Trump knowingly sent an armed mob to attack the Capitol. They're quibbling over minor details in a second-hard anecdote. The desperation is palpable. #IndictTrumpNow #January6thCommitteeHearings

If - God forbid - Republicans win the House in 2022, it won't have anything to do with policy. It will be due to partisan redistricting, gerrymandering, & voter suppression. In other words, GOP lying, cheating & stealing. #VoteBlue #VoteBlueIn2022 #VoteBlueToProtectWomen

Pence still thinks he has a shot at the GOP nomination, and he can鈥檛 anger Trumpers鈥hey are republicans.He needs them.
"He thinks Mike deserves it. He doesn't think they're doing anything wrong." He = Trump Mike = Pence It = Hanging They = Armed insurrectionists Doing = Attacking the Capitol And yet Pence remains mum on the events of that day. #ProfilesinCowardice #January6thCommitteeHearings

We knew. We warned that if voters were dumb enough to elect Trump it wouldn't end well. I thought it would end with Trump declaring a national emergency & instituting martial law. So I guess the good news is that our institutions held the line. But just barely. #TrumpCoupAttempt

I hope everyone complaining that Democrats are weak, freckless & bad at messaging are watching the #January6thCommitteeHearings. Because there is nothing weak or feckless about the show Democrats are putting on. #VoteBlueIn2022 #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica #VoteBlueToSaveDemocracy

After yesterday's hearing, if Merrick Garland doesn't charge Trump with multiple crimes, up to and including seditious conspiracy, it will be the greatest abrogation of responsibility since Nero fiddled while Rome burned. #January6thCommitteeHearings #MerrickGarland #DoYourJob

Someone needs to pull Mark Meadows out of the hole he's been hiding in and drag his cowardly ass in front of a microphone. Like now. #MarkMeadowIsACoward #MarkMeadowsIsACriminal #January6thCommitteeHearings

How are schools going to like it when teachers or other school staff want to lead students in Muslim prayer? Or Buddhist?
