I cannot believe the stupidity and hatefulness of GOP governor of Georgia!!!!!

He is issuing orders NOT allowing cities and counties in Georgia to mandate wearing masks as COVID desthes and cases spike there and in neighboring states.

why can't they recall that miserable shit stack?

Question for Trump at WH press briefing

Mr. President, how does it feel to be so blindingly stupid in your failed response to COVID. And a follow up--can you go fuck yourself?

BIG MISTAKE! -- I just rewatched Obama's final WH Correspondent's Dinner speech

wow. talk about a depressing time warp to when things were sane in America. It dawned on me just how incredibly tired I've become in recent years dealing with Trump shit 24/7....

pre COVID pandemic and over 125,000 Americans dead (it is surreal to even type that)

pre Putin Puppet trying to sell out EU and US interests

pre mass unemployment brought about specifically because of Trump's toxic stupidity

pre-mass incarceration of Latinx families desperate to leave their terrible circumstances only to have children and infants locked in cages and separated from their mothers

pre-Brexit and all the hell that is still yet to unleash

young people today are more knowledgeable than founding fathers

*young people today don't believe slavery of humans is a morally defensible institution

*young people today know more about how human activities have an enormous impact on our planet

*young people today know that slaughtering indigenous people in order to advance white colonialism is wrong

Don't hold our founding fathers on too lofty of a perch. What they did regarding promotion of Democratic self rule and rejection of monarchy was ground breaking--but it birthed a very imperfect nation.

we have a right and an obligation to see those times and those people from a more enlightened perspective.

it is important we recognize those people knew so much less than we do today. It is similar to digging up artifacts from early humans. we know they were less intelligent and extremely primitive. we make allowances for that, but we see them with the clarity of scientific objectivity.

we must listen to the voices chanting for accountability. demanding a reckoning. don't use tradition as a cudgel. examine our nation and the people who led it. focus on how you can better our lives and our institutions.

that is a sign off true patriotism.

we as a country are not learning lessons from 2016 election meddling by Russia

Trump is not a smart person, but the people leading Russian GRU are.

If you feel the temperature is starting to rise across this country even more and that even petty disputes between people are being vaulted into our consciousness and sowing division, it is mot your imagination.

it may mot primarily be Cambridge Analytica or Facebook helping deliver these messages, but the Russians benefit in creating these targeted splits of Americans.

Senate Republicans must go in 2020--not just Trump

I am so happy the polls and approval ratings are trending dramatically downward for Trump, but we need to remind all thise angry and disaffected independents and suburbanites that GOP could have stopped Trump long ago.

last night I watched documentaries on Thurgood Marshall and Emmit Till

as well as the NAACP attempt to stop theater release of Birth of a Nation.

God, we are a country built on racism and white entitlement. So glad Amazon highlighted a bunch of these movies on Prime for Juneteenth and within context of BLM protests.

why aren't DEMS refusing to confirm ANY new appointments

use the old "it's last year if Trump's term" argument that motherfucker McConnell used and just absolutely lock down all appointments from now to Jan 2021!
