Where are the Trump tweets that were reportedly made during House Intel Hearing?

I'm following Trump's tweets, and there are none that see posted as reported.

Were they taken down? Or did I get the story wrong.

The report claimed he was making contrary tweets as the hearing was underway.

Thanks.

Who is going to benefit from the Republicare Tax Cut?

This older article about who pays how much of the Obamacare Net Investment Tax shows just who will reap the benefits of Trump's replacement of Obamacare. Not a surprise, but these talking points may help in your discussions with your Trumpist brother-in-law.

Border wall bidding has been extended to March 20th. You have 5 days to get your plan in.

All the talk about starting up in April has been moved out to a May date to pick winning ideas. But that is after the initial screening of designs which will start with the March 20th deadline. It was to be March 10th.

Our government has been taken over by a bunch of 7th graders.

Just have to get this off my chest before I go to bed:

Franken's question to Sessions was not whether he or anyone on the Trump team had contact with the Russians but rather, What would Sessions do if found out they did have contact? Session's reply was not on the question, which is typical of a politician's reply, but in this case just raised a million more questions about why he would reply that he never communicated with the Russians, when indeed we have learned he did.

You can imagine a conversation between a parent and his teenager: "So son, what would you do if you found out your friends brought along some dope to the party last night?" "Gee dad, I don't know of anyone with any dope. I don't have any dope that's for sure!"
