Just like Donald Trump, Glenn Youngkin won't listen to doctors and scientists. He'd put our health and our economy at risk.

Well, that’s umm, something. In last night’s #VAGov debate, @GlennYoungkin said he would not require nurses treating immuno-compromised cancer patients to be vaccinated against COVID. @TerryMcAuliffe unequivocally supports vaccines. Big issue.
The ⁦@washingtonpost⁩ endorses ⁦@TerryMcAuliffe⁩ wholeheartedly, and slaps down ⁦@GlennYoungkin⁩. This endorsement, coming on debate day, is a gut-punch for Youngkin and a rocket-booster for the Macker.…

Pope Francis on Wednesday reiterated his belief that coronavirus vaccinations were critical. "Even in the College of Cardinals, there are some anti-vaxers," he said, "and one of them, poor man, is in hospital with the virus. But life is ironic."

Yep. "In 2016, the idea that Trump was temperamentally unfit for the White House was a core argument of his Democratic foe @HillaryClinton, who warned that 'a man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.'"…

Thank you, @JasonIsbell and the 400 Unit for an amazing show at Wolf Trap. What a joyful evening; everyone was vaxxed, masked, and dancing.
Spotted at the @JasonIsbell show at Wolf Trap: another great Alabamian, @DougJones.
Hey Tweeps! I have a challenge for y’all. Let’s get the great climate scientist, @MichaelEMann 200K followers before the planet hits 200 degrees Fahrenheit! If you are not yet following him, please do so. You’ll learn a lot!

Congratulations to @RazorbackFB for an impressive win over my beloved @TexasFootball. I know that former Arkansas Governor @BillClinton is ending a sad day with an uplifting win. See y’all in the SEC, where we’ll even the score. #HookEm
What were you thinking on 911? Compassion for the lost? Admiration for the heroes? Rage for the terrorists? Not Trump. He was thinking about himself, claiming that his stupid building was now the tallest in Manhattan. (It wasn't. It was the 32nd tallest.)…
On 911, I reached out to Bush aides @KarlRove & Karen Hughes; suggested going to the DC Islamic Center. Karen said, "Great minds. We're already planning to." Right-wingers mocked him for saying, "Islam is peace," but I think that visit quelled potential violence & fostered unity.…

Leslie should still be inspiring students. Charlie should still be on the cutting edge of science. Those girls, God, what they should have been allowed to do, and to be. Thinking of them and all the lost, the hurt, the heatbroken. #911. (2/2)

About to go on @TheLeadCNN with @jaketapper anchoring. Will dig through the entrails of the new @CNN poll with way-smart folks: @lbarronlopez , @JFKucinich and @BillKristol. Join us.
Republicans often say they base their judgment on the intent of the founders. So I'm sure they'll strongly back @POTUS' vax mandate, since George Washington ordered that all his troops be inoculated against smallpox in 1777.…
"We've come to the conclusion after talking to lots of candidates that they want to join Solugen but they don't feel comfortable coming to Texas, so for us it's become a no brainer to have R&D facilities elsewhere..." #txlege…

"Get vaccinated." @POTUS expresses with an urgent whisper what so many of us have been shouting. Very effective style.
Speaking from the heart, @POTUS does a good job of reaching out to the unvaccinated, expressing outrage over the Disinformation/Industrial Complex, and laying out large, specific steps to boost vaccinations and increase testing. Most Americans, I think, share his urgency.
Hooray for @POTUS for standing up for flight attendants and other travel service personnel who are being abused for simply doing their job and keeping folks safe. Bullying is always wrong.…
In August, we tested a concept similar to the vaccine proposal that @JoeBiden unveiled today in the five states that flipped from Trump to Biden. Given how closely divided those five states are, this is about as much consensus as you will ever find.
