I’ve done a lot of exec branch Congressional compliance work — and this is what we call an F U move.…
Did you know… @ElieNYC and I are both hosts on @SXMProgress? Just IMAGINE what good trouble we’d create if we were on at the same time 🤔 What would you be most interested in?
If you missed it live, here is the On Demand link for The Great Escape ep — different sides of leaving and staying in a country in political turmoil.…
The public had no idea HOW they extracted the kids. Underwater anesthesia and cave diving. The riskiest of medicines and riskiest diving, plus ongoing monsoons… That’s the bonkers part. None of this should have worked.
The Rescue documentary is BONKERS and you all should watch it. — The Rescue chronicles the dramatic 2018 rescue of 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach, trapped deep inside a flooded cave.
People don’t have to share values to vote in coalition for the same candidate. Which candidate will get things done for me/my family (pos motivator) vs we equally hate the same person (neg motivator).…

A neurosurgeon operating anywhere near a uterus is a problem. Stick to brains.…
Hey @SpainInTheUSA — if you want summer tourist dollars, would be helpful to have some visa appts available.
IVF should be considered the most pro-life procedure, used by people who deeply want children. Yet here we are.…
Why did you write on my car door? — to show you I love you! You:
This cannot possibly be a real @AmericanAir flight to get from DC to NYC
Eid update: she picked out a slinky the size of her body. 🙌�Dl
GO TO WNBA GAMES (also they’re fun!) 👇�…KY
Eid Mubarak!! A day to break bread together and be in community. A day to consider Abraham’s challenges and legacy. And in our fam, a day to give the kids some cash and let them loose in the toy store.…
#Japan — a country with the population of CA, TX, FL, NY, PA, IL combined — had fewest gun deaths by far
Summary of #Japan gun laws: — only guns permitted are shotguns, air guns, guns for research or athletics. — permits require written, mental, drug tests — authorities spot check for proper storage of guns and ammo (Abe’s shooter used a homemade device that looked like a camera)
RIP Shinzo Abe
FACTS are funny sometimes 👇�…8Q
All the folks pointing out pay disparity in basketball #FreeBrittneyGriner - start supporting WNBA games. The crowd is intimate and collegial, the team play is amazing to see. Start here 👇🏼 WNBA All-Star Game Sunday, July 10, 1PM ET TV: ABC | Live stream: fuboTV
Fending off a two year old who is trying to lick you is HARD
Practical ways gov’t can help! For the pro-biz set: standardization in one spot can help spur innovation/competition to differentiate in ways that matter to consumers…
But #FreeBrittneyGriner is not as simple as USG paying attention. Activism made sure she stayed on the gov’t radar. She is a pawn in a broader geo-political drama of Putin flexing on the world stage where he can. He will make her and the US pay. 3/3
This is not about rule of law, but about rule of Putin. BG is a known public figure in Russia, where she makes more money than she ever made in the US. The star WNBA player makes less than an NBA starter. Fix that problem! Go see @WNBA games, they’re FUN. 2/
Shared some of this w/@ChrisJansing earlier: #BrittanyGriner did what she had to do to move forward in an awful process as a political hostage. The amount of oil she carried with her was, under Russian law, a personal use amount. That does not require even her time served. 1/
In the age of mass shootings, my son doing his first fire drill seems so quaint and charming.
In the absence of ID, you can use a Rx bottle and mail with your name listed to get through TSA security. But you can’t go through Pre-check. How’s your day going?
According to an Ohio legislator, an ectopic pregnancy can magically become a baby because of one medical paper published in 1912. Reader, they use science from before any other part of modern life happened. But for women’s health, they’ll dig deep into the archives of failure.…
This is very exciting! One of my favorite ppl gets to break new ground…
Uncle Khizr Khan getting a Presidential Medal of Freedom! 🇺🇸🇵🇰
This is a big deal for ALL school kids nationwide. Textbook makers design their books to meet the education standards of the massive TX market. What TX decides shapes what textbooks everywhere will say.…
I am just now discovering that baby yodas eat blue macaron.
None of the is for the faint of heart. I speak of parenting, not democracy.
Caveat: some people are using these old labels with malicious intent. Using Progressive as a pejorative word to describe actual middle of the road positions.
When the vast majority of the American public support a policy — gun control, abortion rights, gay marriage— that’s not “progressive.” It is by definition the Moderate position. Our labels have not re-aligned for the reality of modern attitudes.
It’s the people still grasping onto power, or to relive some glory day of comfort and prestige, who start to waver on their moral compass. Mortality is a bitch. 2/2 #January6thCommittee
I am not at all surprised that Cassidy Hutchinson, at 25, decided to step forward. As a young aide, you still have moral clarity because you are watching, always watching how older ppl in power make decisions. 1/ #January6thHearings
For those who saw Watergate smoking gun hearing in real time, how does this compare?
