You know, when I wrote that tweet, I thought, how will the people who traffic in ugliness on this site weaponize a simple expression of human frailty and frustration? I didn't have to wait long to find out. twitter.com/bennyjohnson/s…

The bottom line is masks work ... If you have the ability to choose between a cloth and a surgical mask, go with surgical. But the best mask is one that a person will actually wear and wear correctly. nytimes.com/2021/09/26/opi… @nytopinion

Why would they? This is who the Republicans are now - even Cheney and Kinzinger voted against the John Lewis Voting Rights Act twitter.com/blakehounshell…
Like most bombing victims in Iraq, Rua Moataz Khadr has no idea which nation was responsible for the airstrike that killed her son and no hope that she will receive compensation for his loss. “Even if I found out, what would I do?” she told The Intercept. interc.pt/3us0rXX

"These are war criminals." The blunt response from Michael Moore (@MMFlint) tonight, when I asked him on the @MehdiHasanShow on @MSNBC about the total lack of accountability, over Iraq, for George W. Bush, Paul Wolfowitz, the Cheneys, and co.
So, during our live handover on @MSNBC tonight, @AymanM & I discussed what it's like for people of color in the media to be ignored, when we warned about the Trumpian threat to democracy, & now watch our white friends in the Establishment catch up. Watch:

Laurence Tribe, 1 of POTUS' go-to outside legal minds: "Yes, it may be a violation of the Constitution for the president to simply ignore the debt ceiling. But it’s even more serious for him 2 obey the debt ceiling & have default in violation of Section 4" washingtonpost.com/us-policy/2021…

No they don’t. They just lied about this and the New York Times pretended to believe them and put it in the newspaper. nytimes.com/2021/09/26/us/…

If a Palestinian senate candidate wrote this sentence-but substituted "Jews" for "Palestinians"-they would be forced to drop out. But I doubt a single GOP leader will ask Mandel to do so. That's how normalized anti-Palestinian racism is. In US politics, it's the air we breathe twitter.com/JoshMandelOhio…

"The Biden administration has till Thursday to comply with the ruling [against Title 42]. If they don't, then I'm sorry but on this issue they'll be no better than Donald Trump." My #minuterant tonight on Biden's use of Title 42 against Haitian migrants:
"The horses are an easy distraction. The real issue is that the Biden administration is copying Trump & using Title 42 to automatically expel migrants at the border, without even allowing them to put in an asylum claim." My @MSNBC #minuterant tonight:
"We were pilloried, we were told we were done, that'd be the end of us, you'd never hear from us again... and yet here I am on the @MehdiHasanShow in primetime." @MMFlint chuckles as he & I reminisce about 2003 & our opposition to the Iraq war on @MSNBC:
"I'm sorry but the [centrists] are lying to you. We can afford $3.5 trillion over 10 years. We can afford to tax the super-rich. We can afford to guarantee basic rights & living standards to the people of this country." From my @MSNBC opening monologue:
"You have Sinema taking money from Big Pharma & Manchin...basking in coal money, while blocking paid family leave & childcare for their constituents. Perhaps we have to start talking about 'Dinos' - 'Democrats in name only.'" From my @MSNBC monologue:
"No one ever asks the conservatives, the centrists, the 'moderates'... to compromise or back down, do they? I've said this time and time again, there is nothing moderate about opposing action on climate change." From my @MSNBC opening monologue tonight:
In 2003, @MMFlint was booed off the Oscar stage after giving an anti-war, anti-Bush speech. He tells @mehdirhasan how things changed over nearly two decades. WATCH:

Folks like @mehdirhasan would had a follow up and asked why she voted against the Equality Act, but instead she gets to talk all about 🏳️‍⚧️ folks deserving safety and everyone having equality without a reckoning on her voting record.twitter.com/60minutes/stat…s

Totally agree with Cheney here, and am glad she has stood up to the crazies since 1/6, but I would add that up to and including Trump’s first impeachment trial, Cheney also ‘embraced’ Trump. twitter.com/mkraju/status/…
Who’s watching @MSNBC? I’m about to start what should be a fun and fascinating conversation on domestic and foreign policy with @MMFlint. Join us! @MehdiHasanShow
Starting shortly...
“We tend to think of coups as something perpetrated against presidents. This was organized BY the President..and we have to make sure that it doesn’t happen again” says @RepRaskin as the Select Cmte on Jan 6 accelerates its investigation. #Velshi ow.ly/4ELQ50GgDLL

"Hasan’s sensibility presents a hybrid, of sorts—part MSNBC, part The Takeaway, part Democracy Now!, part something else. Genuinely tough interviewers are rare on American TV, as are strong progressive voices; @mehdirhasan is both." bit.ly/3lUyTXg

Tonight, on the @MehdiHasanShow, I'll ask Senator @maziehirono whether progressives can save the Biden agenda and get both infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills passed through Congress in the coming days and weeks. Live from 8pm ET on @MSNBC
Tonight, my guests: * Senator @maziehirono on the future of the Biden economic agenda * Oscar-winning filmmaker & progressive activist @MMFlint on Biden, Afghanistan, & more * Law professor @ProfTolson on how she schooled Ted Cruz in a Senate committee Live on @MSNBC from 8pm
The entire, well-reported story is appalling—from start to finish. The Biden DOJ *must* drop its charges against Assange immediately. The case already threatens core press freedom rights of countless reporters. These new revelations are beyond the pale. news.yahoo.com/kidnapping-ass…

Intelligence officials also lobbied to have other journalists re-categorized as "information brokers" in order to investigate and potentially prosecute them—including Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald for their award-winning reporting on the Snowden files. news.yahoo.com/kidnapping-ass…

"Ms. Sinema of Arizona has privately told colleagues she will not accept any corporate or income tax rate increases." What? How is this buried in the 27th paragraph? nytimes.com/2021/09/26/us/…

2) To be clear, as an epidemiologist, I present this because I am worried for all public health. There are plenty of people of both political parties dying. But clearly there is a strong geographic political skew. People need to vaccinate and mask, or else it will hurt us all.

MISCALCULATION BY GOP—As an epidemiologist, I think Republicans might be killing off their voter base faster than they think. The #COVID19 death rate since June 30 in counties where Trump got >90% of the vote are 9.5x higher than where he got <10%—pretty strong. HT @charles_gaba
