    Thank you, Nerdy.

    Thank you for that excellent tweet, meta & congrats!

    These creatures are the direct descendants of those who have committed heinous crimes against Native Peoples and African Americans & POC since those religious fanatics touched North American soil.

      Why call the cops on someone who is simply sleeping? Especially in these times when everyday there is news of some police killing.

    “At least four of the eight states that held primary elections last Tuesday saw higher turnout than they did in the 2016 primaries, with most of the votes being cast by mail.
    Iowa’s turnout reached 24% last week, up from 15% in the 2016 primaries and the highest turnout the state has ever seen for a primary. About 411,000 of the 524,000 votes cast were by absentee ballot,
    a nearly 1000% increase from 2016.”

    White Supremacist Trump playing “savior” by changing the date of his rally:
    Does not alter the fact that he is still choosing Tulsa, where 99 years ago, the worst incident of racial violence in our history took place. Nor does it make the gigantic unavoidable risk of COVID-19 to Tulsa residents and the rest of the country when trump rally attendees go back home, go away.

    • June 13, 2020 at 6:40 pm

      See Tulsa County Oklahoma ‘Confirmed record high COVID-19 Cases’:
      Especially the shocking ‘7-day rolling average of Cases’ on RM’s show:

      Vanessa Hall-Harper, the only Black member of the Tulsa council,
      represents the Greenwood District, site of the 1921 massacre, speaks to Rachel Maddow:
      HALL-HARPER:
      “The president coming here at this time is very concerning to me, and I fear that something very bad is happening very quickly. And I am still shocked and disappointed that he chose to come to Tulsa…
      (on the Juneteenth) and it’s a poke, it’s intentional, it has to be intentional for a decision to be made like that, and I fear for my community.”
      Councilwoman Hall-Harper said that community protestors (and I assume those protests will still take place) will wear masks, that it is of primary importance. However she is concerned that individuals at Trump rally will not wear masks. She is concerned about the spread of COVID-19 and that “something may blow up” and that citizens may be hurt and harmed by law enforcement.

      To give an idea of the culture of policing in Tulsa, the Police Major said:
      “We’re shooting African Americans about 24% less than we probably ought to be…”
      –Nice to hear he was condemned for saying this, but why has he not been fired?

    Call me crazy, but you know the helicopters they use to fly overhead and drop water on forests that are burning? Wish they’d borrow one for the Wendy’s fire in Atlanta, since they can’t send in the fire trucks.

      Do you think he’ll start to limit his public appearances — especially those where he has to stand or walk — to keep scrutiny of his physical condition and speculation of his physical health to a minimum.

      I know that limited appearances by tRump would go a long way in improving the mental health of Americans.

        Who knows what will win out. His constant need for adoration or the fact that he needs to hide because then we’ll all see that he can’t walk, talk, or drink water w/o help

        Like Obama jogging down the stairs from Air Force One…not holding on to the rails. [I have to admit that sometimes I worried about him doing that.]

        Would never see the Orange Oval Office Occupant being able to do *that*!!!

            Guess I can find a million things to criticize Trump for, but I am 74 too and have two knee replacements and one hip replacement with the other hip going out. I use a cane and sometimes a walker. Ramps and stairs are a problem for me so I am not into making fun of him on that count.

    “I think the concept of chokeholds sounds so innocent, so perfect,”
    Trump told Fox News host Harris Faulkner in a pre-recorded interview that aired Friday afternoon,
    “and then you realize if it’s a one-on-one now if it’s a two-on-one that’s a little bit of a different story –
    depending –depending on the toughness and strength, you know we’re talking about toughness and strength,
    we are talking there’s a physical thing here also.”
