Covid is resurgent and millions are about to lose unemployment benefits and their homes. But Trump is playing golfing and tweeting. McConnell is on vacation and doesn't care. And Biden won't start until Jan 20.
We have no government at a time when we desperately need one.
40,000,000 Americans are at risk of eviction.
Meanwhile, the Dow just jumped 400 points and hit a 30,000 milestone for the first time ever.
If that doesn't convince you that the stock market is not a reflection of the economy, I don't know what will.
Even with the pandemic surging to its worst wave yet, food lines stretching for miles, and the prospect of a disaster relief bill nowhere in sight, the Dow jumped 400 points today and hit a 30,000 milestone for the first time ever.
The stock market is not the economy.
Elon Musk just became the second-richest person in the world. He:
—Illegally threatened to take away stock options if employees unionized
—Fired staff after telling them they could take unpaid time off
—Has had 43 workers' rights violations filed against his company since 2010
Is it enough that Trump faces possible prosecution when he leaves office? He degraded our democracy, divided us into warring factions, and fueled racism & hate. We honor ex-presidents with libraries and monuments. How should we remember the shame and disgrace of the last 4 years?
Even after Biden won 306 electoral votes, Trump's harebrained lawsuits got dismissed, and pointless state recounts confirmed that Joe Biden had won -- it still took the threat of getting questioned by @RepKatiePorter to get Emily Murphy to do her job.
Trump is golfing, the Senate is on vacation, there is no COVID relief, food lines stretch for miles, 40,000,000 people face eviction, and Americans are dying in droves.
Is this what they mean by American exceptionalism?
We have to win Georgia.
Georgians: If you turn 18 by January 5, 2021, you are eligible to vote in the run-off elections that will determine whether we take control of the Senate from Mitch McConnell.
You have until December 7 to register to vote.
Please tell your friends.
Rahm Emanuel: 'Two things I would say if I was advising a Biden administration, one is no Green New Deal and two is no Medicare for All.'
Two things I would say if I was advising a Biden administration, one is pay no attention to Rahm Emanuel and two is pay no attention to Rahm Emanuel.
