iPhone : Danny Green has been trending like every other night for a month and every time I’m like “aw maybe it’s because they’re really happy with him tonight” and it never is

iPhone : Here’s Trump’s public schedule for tomorrow. (Public schedules don’t include all of a president’s activities.)

Twitter Web App : Biden invokes a few phrases from the Pledge of Allegiance 22 minutes into a speech; the RNC falsely claims Biden messed up an attempt to recite the pledge, gets 1.5M Twitter views and counting; the Trump campaign posts on Facebook. cnn.com/2020/09/22/pol…

Twitter Web App : Trump tonight:
- Celebrates violence against journalists
- Makes "your country" attack on congresswoman born in Somalia
- Baselessly talks about "fake ballots"
- Outlines bonkers theory his opponent is on drugs
- Calls word "coronavirus" too beautifully Italian-sounding to say

Twitter Web App : Trump, reading, tells people to vote in early voting, then ad-libs that they need to watch for "fake ballots" and turn in the perpetrators.

Twitter Web App : We had a brief honeymoon period in which Trump accurately said, two or three times, that he signed the VA MISSION Act to change the Choice program...but now we're back. twitter.com/brianjdamico/s…

Twitter Web App : Trump repeats his false claim that Biden wants to ban "all charter schools."

Classic Trump - he has accurate ways to go after Biden on charters, instead goes for maximalist dishonesty.

Twitter Web App : Trump repeats his alternative-reality lie that Biden would "destroy protections for pre-existing conditions," which were created under Biden in Obamacare, which Biden is trying to strengthen and Trump is trying to get killed.

Twitter Web App : Trump repeats his false claim that Harris called Biden "a racist" during the primary. Harris began her criticism of Biden on race issues by explicitly saying she doesn't think he's a racist.

Twitter Web App : Trump repeats his usual false claim that the Iran nuclear deal has "practically expired."

Twitter Web App : Because why not, Trump lies that he passed the Veterans Choice bill Obama signed in 2014. (It was co-authored by John McCain and Bernie Sanders; McCain's wife endorsed Biden tonight.)

Twitter Web App : To repeat, the president just gleefully recounted how one journalist was hit in the knee with a tear gas canister (actually a rubber bullet) and how another journalist was shoved to the ground by the authorities, then explicitly said the latter is "actually a beautiful sight."

Twitter Web App : Trump on a reporter being tossed to the ground by the authorities: "When you watch the crap that we've all had to take so long...you don't want to to do that, but when you see it, it's actually a beautiful sight." twitter.com/ddale8/status/…

Twitter Web App : Man. The president gleefully recounts how a reporter was treated by police or the Guard (not sure) as they advanced: "Sometimes they grabbed - they grabbed one guy. 'I'm a reporter. I'm a reporter.' 'Get out of here.' They threw him aside like he was a little bag of popcorn."
