Rule of law. Right.

Turns out, nobody at the Justice Department knew about the immaculate subpoenas.

“If your brains were condensed into gasoline it wouldn’t be enough to run a minibike around the inside of a [national name brand circular oat based breakfast cereal]” – a junior high school insult from way back in the day.

President Trump will never get enough credit for #OperationWarpSpeed. His leadership saved untold millions of lives! #COVID19
4:50 PM · Jun 3, 2021
Some of the responses:
This, of course, is bullshit. In February, he told Woodward how dangerous covid-19 and did not support the wearing of masks. He NEVER talked about getting the vaccine. He did not leave a plan to distributing the vaccine nor ramping up its manufacture.
His leadership on #COVID19 is why he lost the election.
His leadership lost almost 600,000 Americans by claiming covid was a hoax. His leadership consisted of having MAGA rallies in the midst of the pandemic. His leadership made mask political. His leadership was to lead America with lies that killed Americans. His leadership 1-6-21!
Perhaps it’s because he is too busy getting credit for hundreds of thousands of lives lost due to his constant dismissal and down playing of the virus. And let’s not forget his potentially lethal suggestion of injecting bleach over getting a vaccine.
“It’s amazing that brain can generate enough power to keep those legs moving.”
Yes please tell me more about how he did a great job with Covid, Eric.
Eric, please stop.
Yet he claimed COVID would “disappear.” It’s a fact Eric Schmitt won’t make clear. Donald’s vast negligence makes just as little sense as the unfounded claims people hear the AG lob against 46; just a few of his usual tricks.
400,000 people couldn’t be reached for comment. Because they died from COVID on Trump’s watch. You should stick to feckless lawsuits. Health metrics ain’t your jam.
Give us one concrete example of how he didn’t ignore or dissuade or put up road blocks to reduce the massive unnecessary deaths caused. He admitted he lied to calm people down when he knew it was bad. How you are in office amazes me.
You sound so ridiculous
How are you so delusional?
Tweeting for an audience of one, now? How many people have died now because of his incompetence and stupidity?
Speaking of incompetence and stupidity, have you won a case yet as AG?
His “leadership” cost us half a million lives, bub. Go sue somebody for some ridiculous reason.
Wait. What…?? You’re such a pathetic, ignorant moron. Just stop.
Guess you’re trying to distract us from pulling back your latest political stunt in STL County?
By the way, after you stop this nonsense, are you going to say ANYTHING about Trump’s claim he will be reinstated in August?
Will you file a lawsuit with the Supreme Court calling for that reinstatement?
I’ve been giving credit to Dolly Parton.

People keep asking whether certain Democratic Senators can vote to save democracy and still get re-elected.
Of course they can. But even if they can’t, so the fuck what?
Some things are worth losing over!

Also on Friday:
Ilhan Omar @IlhanMN
We have the Senate, the House and the Presidency.
Stop negotiating with a losing insurrectionist party who are trying to sabotage our democracy, pass the infrastructure package through reconciliation and abolish the filibuster.

That would be a good start.
Failed State (May 28, 2021)
The simple math:
The Heartland POD @TheHeartlandPOD
Today the Senate voted 54-35 on a measure, and it didn’t pass. Seriously think about that. 54. Nearly 20% more YES than NO votes. In any other form of “democracy” that’s a blowout win.

Cory Booker @CoryBooker
Senate Republicans blocked a bipartisan commission to investigate the insurrection. Continuing to ignore facts and avoid pursuing the truth will do nothing to stop this from happening again.
12:18 PM · May 28, 2021
Bernie Sanders @SenSanders
It’s a painful day for American democracy that Republicans blocked the creation of a commission to investigate the Jan. 6th insurrection. I applaud the six Republicans who voted for the commission, but I am saddened that so many are too intimidated by Trump to do the right thing.
12:14 PM · May 28, 2021
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand @gillibrandny
Filibustering a bipartisan commission to investigate the deadly violence of January 6th is absolutely shameful. Every single one of us who works in the Capitol — from the Senators to the support staff to the Capitol Police officers — deserved better. We need accountability.
1:00 PM · May 28, 2021
Get rid of the filibuster.
Insurrection and Sedition (May 19, 2021)
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
I am no fan of mask mandates, but comparing them to the Holocaust is over the top & out of line.
One can object to government restrictions without evoking the worldwide tragedy of the Holocaust.
I stand with our Jewish brothers & sisters & condemn these disgraceful comments.
10:51 AM · May 25, 2021
So carefully worded. And just who is this in reference to?
Some of the responses:
This was your first line in the sand? This one? Where have you been?
So you waited until @GOPLeader stood up against it before you had the guts to condemn it. Figures.
It’s a start.
Nah, you’re right. The probability of this occurring again approaches zero.
Name @mtgreenee as the person you disagree with or this this empty
She is the Republican Party
Say her name, coward
Vicky Hartzler throws Trump ally under the bus.
Vicky finally gets it right.
There are a few more comments.
Reely stoopit (May 25, 2021)
Grotesque and offensive willful ignorance doubles down – this morning:
Marjorie Taylor Greene @mtgreenee
Well hate freedom media would you look at this story.
It appears Nazi practices have already begun on our youth.
Show your VAX papers or no in person class for you.
This is exactly what I was saying about the gold star.
This is disgusting!
6:39 AM · May 25, 2021
Currently, in Missouri [pdf]:
The responses to Marjorie Taylor Greene (r):
Unvaccinated students have been banned from K-12 and college for many years. Polio, smallpox, etc. This is nothing new.
We already have to get vaccinated to attend school. Are your children not vaccinated against polio or smallpox?
“Routine smallpox vaccination among the American public stopped in 1972 after the disease was eradicated in the United States.” – CDC
I couldn’t go to elementary school without my MMR vaccine as a kid, among others.
At least 24 states require college students to be vaccinated against meningitis; at least 16 states require Hep B shots.
Many colleges also require MMR and TDap shots.
All without being called Nazis.
You have a severe misunderstanding of:
A. Historical Nazis
B. The history of mandatory vaccines for schools.
You should ask one of @mattgaetz girlfriends to explain the second one before she goes back to high school in the fall.
Read the replies Mags. It’s already a thing. It’s already been a thing for years. Yet here you are just trying to rile people up because you absolutely KNOW the people who follow you are too dumb to know the difference. You play them for the fools they are. When will they learn?
What does that first sentence even mean?
I literally had to show my records to go to college in 2000, this is not new
Two thing separate the US from the rest of the world
I love the fact that you actually think you are smart!!!!
psst…Marge, when my daughters started college, they had to have proof of vaccinations. Come to think of it, when they started Kindergarten, they had to have proof of vaccinations.
Required vaccinations are nothing new, my kids needed their MMR, DPT, chicken pox, polio vaccines to go to school. Even back when I was a kid I was required! Do you know how absolutely ridiculous you sound?
You do know who the Nazis were, don’t you Marge?
False equivalency, Ms Greene. Even in your home state of Georgia since 01 July 2014 all students from grade 7 onwards must have must have received one dose of tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine and one dose of meningococcal (meningitis) vaccine.
Students already have to show proof of vaccinations for other pathogens before attending college, unless they apply for (and are granted) an exemption for religious or medical reasons. Campuses are germ factories; the many vaccinated protect the few who cannot be.
Marjorie Taylor Greene plumbs the depth of stupidity and evil.
The horrifying, noxious idea that Nazi attacks on Jews before their extermination were somehow NOT part of the Holocaust
Jews in ghettoes forced to wear the yellow star was part of the Holocaust
You stupid monster.
Her stupidity is not an excuse.
Does she understand that we have required vaccines in schools for decades?
Oh, stop. Y’all hate college anyway. You all are so good at not having any fundamental belief system. Owning libs isn’t political strategy, you psychopath.
You are vile.
Comparing the slaughter of 6 million Jewish mothers, fathers, grandparents, children, babies to requiring proof of a life-saving vaccine, so we can end a global pandemic?
What is wrong with you?
You need help.
Can you even read?
Marjorie Taylor Greene, in association with Matt Gaetz, spell the end for the modern Republican Party as a viable political party going forward.
The embrace of the GOP of these two clowns is an amazing act of self-sabotage.
Dimwit just learned schools require vaccinations? Just fu
It takes a special kind of stupid to double down on the holocaust comparisons.
And on and on.
Q: “Has anyone seen Vicky Hartzler?”
A: “She’s speaking at a useless out-of-state republican photo-op.”
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
Republicans are united in solving the #BidenBorderCrisis.
We’re here on the ground. Where are Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Democrats?
4:27 PM · May 24, 2021
Heh. No masks?
No time or effort put into an open public town hall in the 4th Congressional District?
As always, the responses are hilarious:
You had years to do something about it and you just made it worse.
They’re doing their jobs. Where are you? At the border? Why is the MO rep dicking about at the border with Mexico and not here, dealing with REAL problems?
Not doing pointless photo ops that solve nothing?
1/6/2021. We remember.
Joe and Kamala are taking care of business not going stunts for photo ops yoy hypocrite.
Are they, were they? Can you show us the republicans immigration and security package they proposed and laid forth a sweeping overhaul of the system and fixed a problem that even Reagan called a crisis 50 yrs ago? Or is that a bill that was to come after their healthcare reform?
You think doing photo ops for your pretend “crisis” is solving anything?
