iPhone : Video shows an NYPD officer punching a homeless man in the face on the subway.

But Manhattan DA Cy Vance isn't prosecuting the cop - he's charged the homeless man with felony assault. thecity.nyc/2020/7/14/2132…

iPhone : Isn’t Navarro the person who was in charge of coordinating what should have been the Defense Production’s coordinated manufacture and distribution of PPE and ventilators during the critical months of March & April when first responders were wearing garbage bags at NY hospitals? twitter.com/maggienyt/stat…

iPhone : NEW: Trump administration is stripping C.D.C. of control of coronavirus data. Hospitals will now report info directly to DC. Health experts are alarmed.

C.D.C. will take part in data collection, HHS spox says: "They will simply no longer control it.” nytimes.com/2020/07/14/us/…

iPhone : Leading to the question: for whom exactly were they rushing this execution in the middle of the night? twitter.com/ChristinaSwarn…

iPhone : Good news this AM in the seemingly endless efforts to get accountability for the Flint Water Crisis: The Sixth Circuit denies former Gov. Snyder's effort to get the full court to reconsider its earlier decision allowing constitutional claims against him to proceed. No dissents.

iPhone : This is incoherent, rambling, and very very worrisome.

The President cannot even articulate a single sentence that makes sense or is passingly true.

I know we're inured to a lot, but still...

iPhone : On July 15th, The U.S. is scheduled to execute #WesleyPurkey, a man with schizophrenia and Alzheimer's. He won't even know why | Opinion newsweek.com/execution-fede…

iPhone : A man whose entire life was built on a rich blend of daddy’s money and financial fraud accuses me, daughter of a house cleaner who won multiple elections to Congress by the age of 30, of not having talent. 🤣

You can tell from his delivery that even HE doesn’t believe it. 😂 twitter.com/acyn/status/12…

iPhone : I'm no longer "live"-tweeting, rather five-minutes-behind tweeting, because Trump is lying so much I keep having to stop

iPhone : So, to recap:

In the past week since announcing his book tour, Gov. Hogan has: 1) criticized Speaker Pelosi; 2) defended the Columbus statue; 3) moved away from mail-in voting; 4) accused Freddie Gray of having gang ties; 5) bashed Mayor Rawlings-Blake & State's Attorney Mosby twitter.com/pwoodreporter/…

iPhone : “The jury will disregard they counselor’s entire opening statement with the exception of “thank you.”” twitter.com/sifill_ldf/sta…

iPhone : Because we know that Trump’s simplistic & deliberately misleading comment will be repeated ad nauseum & w/o explanation, let’s be clear. And this from 2016 is just fatal shooting - doesn’t include choking, beating or tasing to death. washingtonpost.com/news/post-nati…

Twitter Web App : 🚨🚨: AL, GA, SC, MS, and LA have all ended their moratoriums on evictions and utility shutoffs. Many families are now at risk of being evicted from their homes and put in the impossible situation of trying to fight #COVID19 without running water or electricity. #KeepTheLightsOn
