Pretty confident the idiotic assertion that Dems want to take away your cows and cars is going to resonate with anyone half a brain. Trump is campaigning to get the vote of 34% of the country.

Krikorian is influential in conservative, Trump-friendly circles on immigration. And he doesn’t like the deal.

Reduction in ICE detention capacity more than cancels out any benefit from that small amount of extra fencing. https://twitter.com/sarahnferris/status/1095143213541806081 …​

Hannity cuts away from Trump rally to bash "garbage compromise"

It seems kind of notable that he's doing what's ostensibly a campaign rally in Texas.
Beto got him shook.

Is... someone in Trump's orbit lurking poliera? He's onto us.
Stephen Miller is who I'd bet if we're going for someone we know and not just a random intern or staffer.

I'm all for criticizing Israel's shit but maybe it's a topic that should be dealt with with a bit more nuance than a couple words on Twitter. Not everything needs a quick rapid fire tweet of the first thought that cross your mind.

So anyway I think we are going to be ok on taxes this year because when my company sent my severance, they withheld at bonus rate rather than salary rate. If not for that I bet we’d be writing a check for a couple thousand.

My sister in law, who is probably even more to the left than me, lives in Louisville and I have no idea why. Her and her long-term boyfriend even moved out to NYC for him to go to school... and then they came back. Why. There's no family there; she's from WA like my husband. I know Louisville is probably the best part of Kentucky, and honestly didn't seem that bad when we visited her, but I'm not quite sure why someone would voluntarily move there multiple times when Yertle, Rand, and Bevin are your legislators (yes I know Louisville has a D House member). Possibly the worst trio in America.
Our legislators suck, but it wasn’t that long ago that we had a governor supporting an extremely successful Medicaid expansion. In general the city has a good quality of life and a cheap cost of living. I personally appreciate the relatively large refugee and immigrant communities as well.

This is the exact same thing someone said as a joke in the Ariana Grande tattoo thread. Someone said that she is more fluent in Japanese than most native speakers... and people took the bait. Is this a reference to something I don't know?

Maggie just...stop tweeting.
She is right though. His brain is going and it's a mere preview of the next 2+ years.

Took the words out of my mouth. You're a damn reporter, report what's to come, don't act as a cryptic hypeman.
He has dementia. But they aren't going to report it for obvious reasons.

If that's not what she's saying, she's saying he's going to keep saying stupid shit and lies like this at rallies throughout the election season.

So the same shit conservatives level at Dems all the time anyway for decades?
I really hope that this emboldened and unprecedented level of fear mongering won't have any effect but Im tired of being proven wrong when it comes to the idiocy that composes the voting population. I know that they have always done it but never to such a degree where they have absolutely no shame to lie about absolutely everything and defy basic logic. Also the electoral college will always favor republicans until it's completely abolished so that is another uphill battle.

The media will do their part to spread these messages of fear and hatred for free all thought-out this year and next until trump, the monster who singlehandedly increased their viewer ratings, is reelected again. I'm seriously starting to lose hope here.

Donald Trump Jr. @DonaldJTrumpJr

Beto trying to counter-program @realdonaldtrump in his hometown and only drawing a few hundred people to Trump’s 35,000 is a really bad look.

Partial pic of the Trump overflow crowd below! #AnyQuestions


Zahira Torres @zahiratorres

El Paso Fire Department just told us that Trump's statement about them allowing 10,000 people inside is incorrect. Spokesman says coliseum holds 6,500 and that is how many were allowed in building. #TrumpElPaso


Jennifer Epstein @jeneps

El Paso police estimate a crowd of 10,000 to 15,000 for the anti-Trump, anti-wall, pro-O’Rourke march and rally tonight.
