1. What if the criminal only constantly publicly threatens to do such crimes?

Then, he’s just a troll, right?

Can somebody please do something about our insane president?

2. Laws - Schmaws!

Since when have any Republicans cared if he followed any of those.

His response would be - "So MAKE me!"

And they wouldn't.

Because he is only targeting Blue states, they think it's fine and dandy.

12. Yes, Trump is a lawless president

and he just doesn't care. Why should he? He never gets held accountable for anything.

@ThePlumLineGS
rightly noted, this is the very scenario we forecasted during this deranged president’s impeachment.

15. x 1000. Any idea of status of the grand jury materials from Mueller's investigation?

We need lots of sunlight right now. I'm hoping a group from CDC speaks out. And Pompeo staff. And while I'm wondering, how is Covid doing in the WH? Maybe they'll all just be carried out like the end of a Jim Jones "rally".

17. This is one of those lies that'll be lost in the history books b/c there aren't enough pages.

Radley Balko Retweeted

This is one of those lies that'll be lost in the history books b/c there aren't enough pages. But it's menacing in this moment. The president is spreading egregiously false information that will incite his base (already seeing it on my FB feed) and fuel talk of a rigged election.



1. Michigan sending absentee ballot applications not ballots to voters

2.
@JocelynBenson
one of best Secretaries of State in country & has authorization to do so

3. Threatening to block funding to sway election outcome exactly what Trump impeached for



Trump would totally try to block FEMA funding to a state experiencing catastrophic flooding because he doesn’t understand the difference between ballots and ballot applications.

18. This tweet has now been resent to say "applications" were sent to all voters.

Kaitlan Collins Retweeted

This tweet has now been resent to say "applications" were sent to all voters. But it's still not true that this was done illegally. All Michigan voters are, by state law, entitled to vote by mail. Applications are sent out all the time, including before the coronavirus pandemic.
