Dear people who keep telling pollsters they think Trump is stronger on the economy:

21 million people are out of work because he’s too stupid to understand basic science.

Stop talking about percents. Let's talk about dead children.

57 million kids attend schools.

Assume a ridiculously low infection rate of 2% - that's 1,140,000 children sick. Assume a death rate of 0.5%. That's almost 6,000 dead children. Like two 9/11s, with just kids.../1

Stanford Magazine wrote about my New York Times bestselling memoir, HOLLYWOOD PARK.

I always knew that degree would come in handy someday.

Quoted @realDonaldTrump

In Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and many other countries, SCHOOLS ARE OPEN WITH NO PROBLEMS. The Dems think it would be bad for them politically if U.S. schools open before the November Election, but is important for the children & families. May cut off funding if not open!

am I understanding this correctly? covid-19 is so deadly that Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen had to be released from prison early, but it's also so benign that we need to be packing the nation's children back into their schools pronto? ok cool, that checks out

Definitely just a weird coincidence that the last two Republican presidencies both featured legacy cases who coasted on their inheritance, didn't win the popular vote to get elected, and then once in power ushered in world-historical catastrophe and suffering.

Quoted @JohnRizkallah

This happened to my friend Jordan last night in Monterey, CA while celebrating her aunt’s birthday. All they were doing was singing happy birthday when this man started yelling disgusting racist remarks. These racists exist and they’re getting comfortable. Please vote!

Could everyone PLEASE stop sharing this video of Michael Lofthouse? He’s the founder & CEO of Solid8, a tech company based in San Francisco. If it goes viral it could hurt Michael Lofthouse and Solid8, his company. Let’s all be nice to Michael Lofthouse and Solid8.

There’s plenty of evidence that police violence *increases* crime rates in communities, especially Black communities. Then, police use these crime rates to justify even more aggressive policing practices. Let’s review the research. (1/x)

We need way more reporting from inside hospitals.

One of the problems with how this pandemic has been handled is that none of the pain has been witnessed by outsiders, so they don’t have a visceral sense of how tragic it is that 130,000 people have died in the dark.

8/9 The truth is simple, and horrifying. We are about to have dozens of NYCs around the country. The next 8 weeks are going to brutal, no matter what we do. ICUs overflowing, ventilators rationed, hundreds of thousands of deaths.

Wow. I'm honored and humbled and excited to announce my memoir, HOLLYWOOD PARK, debuted on the New York Times bestsellers list.

I just want to say, you spend your whole life repeating other's ideas until one day you realize you have your own story to tell. Thank you. Truly.
