That was like a vision of America as it should be — decent, truthful, committed to justice, unified in diversity. Eloquence at every point. Reality will set in, as it must. But wow.

“They were careless people. They smashed up things & creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, & let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

Trump is gone. That such a creature became president, and even now has support, requires a reckoning with no time for celebration. Repudiate, rebuild, renew. Above all, remember, so it doesn't happen again.

Don't take this day for granted.

Trump came fairly close to winning the EC despite huge public repudiation.

Rs almost kept control of the Senate, allowing massive sabotage.

Terrorists almost managed to kill multiple members of Congress.

The ugly is out about how America is not great. Many of us knew this, but Trump's singular skill besides destroying everything is that his four years has shown all of the awful things and ways in which this nation is broken. MAGA wasn't great. It showed the flaws and brokenness.

This is such a #mustread from ⁦@ddale8

Also this is damning from him: “To be frank, though, I think the coverage of the lying remained inadequate to the end.”

Funny Trump was never rushed to safety during the attack on the Capitol, isn’t it?

Doesn’t matter he was at the WH, not the Capitol.
Doesn’t matter they were his supporters.

The reality is an armed mob was blocks away, and IEDs had been located.

Yet Trump watched it all on TV.

“So scary are the consequences of a collapse of white privilege that many Americans have flocked to a political platform that supports and translates violence against the defenseless as strength,” Toni Morrison wrote, in 2016.

Please don’t act like everyone loved my father. He was assassinated. A 1967 poll reflected that he was one of the most hated men in America. Most hated. Many who quote him now and evoke him to deter justice today would likely hate, and may already hate, the authentic King. #MLK

Quoted @RVAwonk

This is happening: Trump & his allies have reportedly accepted tens of thousands of dollars — potentially hundreds of thousands — from wealthy convicted felons seeking pardons in exchange for cash.

Presidential pardons should not exist. Just one more thing on a long list of needed reforms.

Quoted @ChestHairGalore

A poignant insight by Mr. Kasparov. The left has to handle this in a way that won’t empower the radicals..“Demagogues don't find radicals to lead, they steadily radicalize their followers one outrage at a time.” This is a must read. ⁦@Kasparov63

Thank you. You get attacked for “both sidesism” when you point out things like this, but the goal is to slow and constrain the political pendulum, not just keep shoving it back harder, because it always returns harder still.

The death penalty is fundamentally a poor person’s issue. Over nearly 40 years of visiting death row facilities across the United States, I have never met a single person with money or resources. Capital punishment means “those without the capital get the punishment.”
