TweetDeck : "I believe he shouldn’t accept the election results if he loses in November."

As George Conway says, this is the position that Trump is explicitly demanding that his supporters adopt. New and updated version of what Trump is openly arguing:

washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…

Twitter Web App : I believe Trump's executive actions will save the economy and that the economy doesn't need saving b/c it's already vaulted back to greatness.

I believe coronavirus was never a real threat (as Trump said for many weeks) and that his glorious leadership is currently crushing it. twitter.com/gtconway3d/sta…

Twitter Web App : How the administration administration is undermining the post office -perhaps to undermine the election

washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…

iPhone : David Watkins David Roberts Dems are litigating in every swing state right now to try to ensure that mail ballots that arrive after Election Day are counted, which is far more important to the real world impact of mail delays than any Pelosi tweet, but that's not fun to tweet about, so...

iPhone : Just like they did with Obama. Republicans drove the car in a ditch and Republicans kept trying to slash the tires on the tow truck Obama sent out. twitter.com/ThePlumLineGS/…

iPhone : This piece is based on a great new Roosevelt Institute report that documents how the coronavirus crisis has exposed deep injustices in our political economy, ones that we should seize this moment to address: twitter.com/ThePlumLineGS/…

iPhone : Trump's message from here on in: You're on your own, America. I've done everything I can. Now let's all pretend that the pandemic and the economic crisis are behind us: washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…

iPhone : Greg Sargent Great article, Greg, as usual. While an FDR-like approach is indeed what's best, I fully expect another Tea Party type uprising on the Right as conservative media rediscovers the debt/deficit and breathlessly rants once again about "mortgaging our nation's future" 🙄

iPhone : And beware the austerity creeping by way of all manner of weasel words: sustainability will be a favorite.
Thanks Greg Sargent for picking up this important issue. twitter.com/ThePlumLineGS/…

iPhone : It's now clear that if Joe Biden wins, he'll inherit an economy utterly devastated by Trump's depraved incompetence *and* that Republicans will do all they can to sabotage the recovery.

It's urgent that we think big about what's next. My brief essay:

washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…

TweetDeck : Trump is "personally responsible for tens of thousands of deaths."

"All the evidence is in the public record."

"It’s the fulfillment of everything he is."

An incredibly damning and detailed indictment, from Will Saletan. Read it all:

slate.com/news-and-polit…

TweetDeck : Trump's magical executive orders have already been exposed as shams.

"unlikely to have immediate, meaningful impact on the sputtering economy"

"resulted in confusion and uncertainty for tens of millions of unemployed Americans and countless businesses"

nytimes.com/2020/08/09/us/…

TweetDeck : Greg Sargent Some genies are harder to stuff back into bottles than others.
Moves that get Congress off the hook for making hard substantive decisions with on-the-record votes tend not to get serious pushback even after a party switch. E.g., no one ever seriously tries to reclaim war powers.

TweetDeck : From the CBS poll of Pennsylvania, support for fracking is slightly underwater, 48% pro and 52% against. This is not usually how the issue is covered - as opposition being a political suicide mission.

TweetDeck : Hey Trumpers,

If your President loves America so much, explain this video:
