George Floyd's brother just said that the phone conversation with Trump was so fast that he didn't even give him the opportunity to speak but Trump kept pushing him off & not wanting to hear what he was talking about.

BREAKING: Protestors have now blocked the main lanes of I-35 in downtown Austin.

Oh man ... he's really on a roll. So overstimulated right now.

The wingnuts are going to have a collective orgasm over this speech.

Please be aware that a billion dollars is going to be spent in the next 150 days by Trump and his campaign to feed you bad information designed to manipulate your vote.

They will lie, encourage racial division, attack Biden's mental health, and sell a fake Deep State narrative.

I can’t even imagine, losing your brother like that, then believing you have a chance to speak to the leader of the nation to maybe get something done, only to realize the man is incapable of empathy and just wanted to check a box.

Quoted @saeed_ahmed

Drove over to CNN Center this morning, not to document the despair but to awe at the aftermath: bands of Atlantans, armed with brooms and bags, cleaning up while others wheeled carts of food and water, offering them to volunteers and strangers.

A handful wreaked havoc, many more cleaned up the damage:

Want to fact check something I’m seeing said a lot right now about the launch.

This isn’t America successfully returning to space.

This is a private corporation, led by a man who tries to avoid as many taxes as possible, selling a ride to American astronauts.

So the toddler in the WH will spend the day escalating tensions, tacitly encouraging more violence tonight while cities try to clean up the mess from the night before and live through an utterly failed pandemic response. America in 2020.

That’s an opinion piece written by a man who dated Ann Coulter.

In 2010 he was indicted & arrested for lying about his involvement during the investigation of a multimillion-dollar Ponzi scheme. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to “500 hours of community service.”

I understand the whole protest. I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about strategy. Trump wants this. It’s about timing. He wants this because it allows him to cause chaos. It allows white supremacists to infiltrate large crowds and burn things up and make it look like us.

Actually now is the moment for Roger Goodell to step to a microphone and offer a full and complete apology to Mr. Kaepernick. To announce his commitment to supporting Mr. Kaepernick ‘s charities. And to signing Mr. Kaepernick to an NFL team.

I honestly thought it would take till July or August, but the Trump-led Party is getting its Reichstag fire, and its police and paramilitary support, in order well in advance of the election

If someone breaches a security perimeter, the Secret Service is very well trained to subdue that person with the least drama and harm. The idea they're eager to use "vicious dogs" and "the most ominous weapons" is a slander. As is the fake quote from a Secret Service supervisor.
