The House has passed $60.8 billion in aid to #Ukraine!

All #Democrats voted for the bill.

More than half of #Republicans voted against it, because they support #Putin.

It was kids on TikTok who kept ordering all the free tickets to Trump’s 2020 rallies and not showing up. One time Brad Parscale promised Trump that like 800,000 people were gonna come to one of his rallies based on tickets given out, but it was all TikTokers who were fucking around and the rally ended up being almost empty. I’m certain this organizing power among The Youngs has left a bad taste in politicians’ mouths!

Some curious media folks might want to reach out to the about their internal polling.

They’ll probably lie about it, but there’s some panicking going on.

@GottaLaff
Surprised to hear the RNC is spending money on polling. I guess the questions must be like “do you approve of Donald Trump 100% or 150%?” and “is Lara Trump’s makeup awesome, or is it amazing?”

Judge Juan #Merchan has finally had enough of #Trump siccing his rabid disciples on the judge's daughter.

The gag order in Trump's New York election coverup case has been extended to include staff and family members of the Court and DA Alvin Bragg's office. Trump can (and surely will) continue making statements about the judge and the DA, but family and staffers are now off-limits.

“William C. Robinson, a pastor working for Chi Alpha Campus Ministries in Corpus Christi, received 10 years probation after sexually abusing an underage family member [for years].”

Probation? Sounds about white… He molested his own relative and the court ordered him to take parenting classes! Unreal.

This is why you don't play footsie with fascists!

Ronna Romney is, thankfully, gone from NBC. But details of her contract are leaking out. It turns out MSNBC prez Rashida Jones was directly involved in recruiting and hiring Ronna, and executives had indeed intended for her to appear on MSNBC in addition to NBC -- even agreeing to pay her extra for it.

Now, Ronna is gearing up to sue NBC for breach of contract.

You may have heard that when you abandon #Twitter, it's recommended to leave your account intact and just stop using it, instead of deleting it. Here's a good example of why that's suggested.

Judge Juan #Merchan's daughter deleted her Twitter account last year (presumably after a prior round of threats and unwanted publicity). That made her old username available -- someone has since registered it, and is posting things that #Trump is using to rile up his base.

Disinformation-peddling continue to spread nonsensical racist conspiracy theories to inflame their ignorant voters.

Michigan State Rep. and Matt Maddock saw the men's basketball team arriving at Detroit's airport and immediately tweeted out false claims that the team buses were actually carrying "illegal invaders."

His tweet is still up, with 5M+ views.

"Republican [State] Rep. Jon Stone’s New Hampshire law enforcement career ended when he threatened to kill fellow police officers in a shooting spree, and murder his chief after raping the chief’s wife and children, all while he was already under scrutiny for his inappropriate relationship with a teen girl."

He's still in office, though! And (surprise) he's a firearms dealer.
