I humbly propose the creation of the verb "to underbus" as using forms of the phrase "to be thrown under the bus" is simply too unwieldy, long and nettlesome to be workable in what promises to be a season of intense and constant underbusing. cc: @MerriamWebster

Quoted @marcorubio

Before we nullify the results of an election or dismiss some very serious accusations as an attempted coup, maybe it would be a good idea to try and gather all of the facts & then give some thought to what would be in the best interest of our country

I don’t know,just a thought

This is a good and fair idea. We could call it an “impeachment inquiry.”

I strongly recommend people read the full text of whistleblower’s communication in @nytimes - it’s more shocking than you can imagine. Seems entirely possible that 2020 election will be with Pres Pence ( his predecessor doing a Nixon)

The Tired Grown-Up’s Guide To Karma

The universe, in all its boundless wonder, awe and dread,
repays us (I have lately understood)
for childhoods spent complaining that we had to go to bed
with adulthoods spent wishing that we could.
