In the true @HacksOnTap tradition, we recorded this AM & analyzed @ReverendWarnock's victory hours BEFORE the polls closed. (Glad it worked out!🙄) We also looked at all angles of new DNC primary calendar w/one of its architects,@MoElleitheee. Good stuff!hacksontap.com/episodes/run-o…0
Kudos to election authorities in GA and states throughout the country for their extraordinary work. Despite all the conspiracy theories from embittered losers, the American election system is remarkable for its probity and efficiency.
Two bad verdicts for Trump today--one in a courtroom in NYC, where his company was found guilty by a jury. And tonight in GA, where yet another of his handpicked candidates was defeated.
All in all, how do you think these first weeks of the Trump campaign have gone? nytimes.com/live/2022/12/0…
We don't know what is going to happen tonight in GA. But as professional matter, I think @ReverendWarnock's team has run an excellent media campaign. Message was consistent and strategically smart. Execution was artful. They also have a candidate who can really deliver.

One issue, beyond election denial, on which @Mike_Pence strongly parts w/the populist right is on aid to Ukraine. "I think the U.S. needs to send an unambiguous message that we will stand with the freedom fighters in Ukraine," he says on #AxeFiles. Pod�link.chtbl.com/jnEhblvw50
Would a Speaker McCarthy allow the country to default on its debt for the first time in history? Because he apparently would have to work with Democrats to avoid it. cnn.com/2022/12/06/pol…
.@GOPLeader Last week you wouldn't condemn Trump for dining with Fuentes & West. This week Trump said we should terminate all rules, regulations etc “even those in the Constitution" to overturn the election. Are you so utterly without principle that you won't condemn this either? twitter.com/liz_cheney/sta…

“The reason this country is a democracy at all is because Black and Jewish people have loved each other, and helped each other, and supported each other, and stood up for each other.” —@VanJones68, our Wall Street Dinner keynote speaker. Watch just part of his incredible speech:

Since taking over Twitter, blunderbuss @elonmusk has urged voters to vote @GOP in fall elections, endorsed @GovRonDeSantis for POTUS and has re-opened the back door to conspiracy theorists. It makes sense that @GOPLeader warmly embraces Musk and his own conspiracy-mongering. twitter.com/acyn/status/15…
Imagining a figure like Trump, George Washington warned of chaos, spawned “by some aspiring demagogue who will not consult the interest of his country so much as his own ambitious views.” apple.news/AdtQb8UpITdqqR…
On #AxeFiles, @Mike_Pence says @GOP candidates who embraced election denial paid the price in November. "There was never any evidence of massive fraud...in any state that suggested a change in the outcome of the election." Pod�link.chtbl.com/jnEhblvwdL
Really happy to learn that, contrary to reports, the very smart and insightful @PaulBegala is staying with @CNN!
On #AxeFiles, ⁦@Mike_Pence⁩ & I had a spirited exchange about the Affordable Care Act, which he opposed and I strongly support for both personal & public policy reasons. Below is one exchange but I hope you'll listen to our whole conversation here: link.chtbl.com/jnEhblvw
Man, just tuned into the game in time to see the Dutch treat themselves to a two goal lead. Would take a miracle now.
Should South Carolina be first primary state? Tweet me your thought and I will read some @CNN @cnni when @davidaxelrod joins me next hour cnn.com/2022/12/02/pol…

This is the very lunacy voters rejected last month. The message was very clear. twitter.com/ronfilipkowski…
Bottom line, if you had any question that @POTUS intends to run, this early primary lineup he dictated should allay your doubts. twitter.com/davidaxelrod/s…
In 2020, Iowa and NH nearly upended @JoeBiden with fourth and fifth place finishes, and South Carolina revived him. Now he's returned the favor, making SC number one! politico.com/news/2022/12/0…
On 11/7, in elections & ballot issues, voters chose abortion rights. @Mike_Pence is undaunted. Here's what he said on #AxeFiles: "It may take as a long to restore the sanctity of life in all 50 states as it took to overturn Roe v. Wade." Pod�link.chtbl.com/jnEhblvwF2
Feels like Herschel's losing yardage every time he carries the ball. twitter.com/patriottakes/s…
End of an era. It makes sense to prioritize more diverse statws but it also will deprive voters of a chance for the intimate campaigning that IA and NH provided. That's a loss. nytimes.com/2022/12/01/us/…
Thrilled for my old friend and colleague @Austan_Goolsbee, who is as warm and hilarious as he is brilliant--on his appointment to lead the Chicago Fed! cnbc.com/2022/12/01/eco…
On #AxeFiles, I asked @Mike_Pence how, after 1/6, could walk into a booth & vote for Trump again? Pence doesn't think he'll have to, and added this: "I may be not just be stepping in the voting booth. I may be stepping in Iowa & NH & South Carolina!" Pod�link.chtbl.com/jnEhblvwFO
The ⁦@GOPLeader⁩ is campaigning hard for Speaker! nytimes.com/2022/11/30/us/…
With control of the senate settled, will Rs come out for Herschel Walker? This runoff feels for @GOP like a regular season game with no prospect for the playoffs. What's the incentive for those hundreds of thousands of Rs who didn't vote for him in November to come out now?
My #AxeFiles w/@Mike_Pence is up! Recorded before a live audience at @UChiPolitics this week, we covered a lot of ground. Laughed some. Disagreed plenty--though civilly. Parted amicably. It was a good, bracing conversation! Listen here�link.chtbl.com/jnEhblvw5H
Following ⁦@SpeakerPelosi⁩ is like taking up right field after Babe Ruth. But ⁦@RepJeffries⁩ is tough, smart and unflappable--the right qualities for a difficult job. And the generational change in leadership will give Ds a jolt. washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/…
It was never love that bound most Republican pols to Trump but they heeled to his base. Now, as the Midterms underscored, he's become a liability. He's wounded. They sense his vulnerability. So you see less of the reflexive defense of the indefensible.
Here's a guy whose now rooting extra, extra hard for a Trump reprise so he can get a Trump reprieve. washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2022/…

Would have been malpractice for the ⁦@ChicagoBears⁩ to play the injured ⁦@justnfields⁩ today. You don't risk the future for a meaningless game in a rebuilding season! chicago.suntimes.com/bears/2022/11/…
"There aren't plans to bring Mr. Trump to Georgia, but he is scheduled to host a virtual rally shortly before Dec. 6th." What does THAT tell you?!? It's telling that they don't even want Trump, who created Walker's candidacy, to cross state lines to campaign for him!
What the current frontrunner for the '24 @GOP presidential nomination told the white nationalist leader who dined with him and Kanye West at Mar-a-Lago. Read that sentence a couple of times! axios.com/newsletters/ax…
For Thanksgiving weekend, we've re-posted one of my favorite #AxeFiles episodes, this one w/@andersoncooper. Also, be sure to check our Anderson's moving new pod, All There Is, in which he explores stories of grief and survival. Here is our #AxeFiles: link.chtbl.com/E3w-b8GQ
Just re-upping this since Elon keeps asserting based on nothing but vibes that Twitter privileges left wing content. It does not. google.com/amp/s/amp.theg…

Research reflects what should be obvious: More guns means more gun deaths and violence, not more safety and security. The U.S. leads the world in gun ownership and gun violence. By far. Only Yemen---that's right, YEMEN!--experiences more. nytimes.com/2017/11/07/wor…
In the midst of a very bad November for Donald Trump, two more of his loyalists went down today in Alaska, including ⁦@SarahPalinUSA⁩. Sen. @lisamurkowski⁩, one of 7 Rs in senate to vote to convict Trump, was re-elected. abcnews.go.com/Politics/murko…
Rep. Mary Peltola (D) just resoundingly won a full term in #AKAL, a Trump +10 seat. Meanwhile, five Dems in the Lower 48 managed to lose Biden +10 or more seats, costing Dems their House majority.

The ⁦@chicagobulls⁩ serve up a holiday week treat: Back-to-back wins against the @celtics and, tonight, the ⁦@Bucks⁩! nba.shar.estori.es/go/509afb41-a2…
On #AxeFiles, @SenAlexPadilla talks about the generational change that is coming. "The young people these days, the voting bloc from 18 to 25 is not just the most diverse set of voters in history but it's also the largest. So, America, get ready!" Pod�link.chtbl.com/PmVobY9OyN
Even if we disagree on how to tackle this, can't we, at long last, just agree that the frequency of gun violence in America-unique among the nations of the world-is a problem that demands answers? washingtonpost.com/nation/2022/11…
And it's probably revealing/embarrassing stories like these that provoked the Titan of Twitter to engage in Trump-like fulminations against the ⁦@nytimes⁩. Autocrats don't love transparency. nytimes.com/2022/11/22/tec…
On #AxeFiles, @SenAlexPadilla, who once was CA SecState, decries the threat of election denial. "If I vote and it doesn't matter because you have a conspiracy theorist that's going to overturn it anyway, that's suppression at its very, very worst."  Pod�link.chtbl.com/PmVobY9O6a
