TweetDeck : Paul Krugman When a "stable genius" doesn't understand math and doesn't understand science and takes everyone in America, especially his base, for fools, he says numbskull, inane things like this. And is dumb enough to think he can get away with it.

TweetDeck : As Trump presses to reopen the economy, nearly 6 in 10 Americans who are working outside their homes are concerned that they could be infected at work & then infect other members of their household. 72% of Hispanic & 68% of black workers feel that way. washingtonpost.com/national/a-maj…

TweetDeck : This wouldn't happen in a healthy democracy >> Top Republicans are pressing to do things the majority detests: more tax cuts for the rich, corporate legal immunity, bankrupting the post office. The GOP has adopted the goals of corporate & rich supporters

TweetDeck : The pandemic & accompanying economic crisis have thrown over 35 million Americans out of work, and that is expected to depress wages.

That means the case for sectoral bargaining is stronger than ever -- to help hold the line on wages & push them higher.

TweetDeck : Donald J. Trump Mr. President, you want to use your First Amendment protections to tweet out a flood of lies. But you want to deny Twitter its First Amendment protections to fact check you and to correct your lies.

You thus show a fundamental disrespect for others' First Amendment rights.

TweetDeck : One way to show how costly--in cases, lives, jobs--Trumps failed response to the crisis has been is to compare US with other adv. economy outcomes. Heres US & German unemployment.

TweetDeck : In the World's Richest Nation, Child Hunger Is Soaring.

"Among pandemic-related hardship, child hunger stands out for its urgency — after decades of exposés and reforms, a country of vast wealth still struggles to feed its young"

Twitter Web App : It was foolish, self-deceiving & untruthful for you to say "I am not a racist," considering that your fear of Christian Cooper was racist, your palpable disdain for him was racist, and your 911 call & threats were egregiously, over-the-top racist.

Twitter Web App : Amy Cooper, your apology was lame & dishonest when you said, "I am not a racist." It would have been far better & more honest if your apology had said, "This incident made me see that I am racist & I will work hard for the rest of my life to overcome that"

TweetDeck : Donald Trump said he was going to make America great again, but CHILD HUNGER in the U.S. is SOARING-- What an utter disgrace and huge moral failure in Trump's America. nytimes.com/2020/05/26/us/…

TweetDeck : Donald J. Trump Donald, In case you didn't realize, Barack Obama is no longer the president. He hasn't been president for three-and-a-half years now. So you need to deal with reality and stop blaming him for everything that's gone wrong on your watch.

The buck stops with you.

TweetDeck : Describing America's workers in a hugely cold, insensitive way, a Trump senior economic adviser calls millions of workers about to return to work, often under risky conditions, "human capital stock." rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

TweetDeck : Very worrisome about the meatpacking industry—Tyson, the nation's largest meat processor, says it has transformed its facilities to make them safer, yet the number of Tyson workers with Covid-19 exploded from less than 1,600 a month ago to over 7,000 today

TweetDeck : With no child care or summer camps, many women are being edged out of the workforce.

Not only are women being laid off & furloughed at a significantly higher rate than men, but with kids at home, many women are opting out of the workforce.

TweetDeck : Donald J. Trump Can we stop pretending Trump is fit to be president?

If you gave many GOP lawmakers truth serum, they’d say, “Of course he’s unfit to be president. Of course he’s corrupt, of course he’s incompetent, of course he’s the most dishonest" president ever.
