Your morning reminder that Mitch McConnell refused to take up any legislation to help states respond to COVID the whole month of June because he wanted to ram through as many conservative judges as possible.
Then he sent the Senate on a two week recess.
Everyone who is eligible to vote should be able to do so safely and easily, whether at the ballot box or voting by mail.

I don't usually do this, but today is the last day of Emmy voting and we had some stellar performances and craftsmanship on display in season 4 of #MrRobot. Please consider these talented folks for your consideration. twitter.com/esmailcorp/sta…
White House officials said the goal was to push back on a Post story about Fauci getting sidelined and to say there are other voices. They ended up treating Fauci like a warring political rival of the president. nytimes.com/2020/07/12/us/…
8 weeks into NY’s reopening, our numbers remain low and steady
That doesn’t happen on its own — we decide our own fate
Keep it up, NY!
Wear a mask 😷
It's become very clear at this point, that there are entire categories of businesses that are basically screwed for an indefinite period of time: nightclubs, music venues, theatres or any kind come to mind. There's gotta be a specific rescue package for them or they're gone.
This is a great defense of a brilliant piece that in no way bears responsibility for the incredibly complicated issues we are all dealing with in this country regarding our history. Great art evokes emotion within us and #Hamilton succeeds wildly. twitter.com/secupp/status/…
Dr (Fauci) knows best
Keep going, NY 💪🏻
Dr. Fauci today: New York is “doing really well” and “has a Governor and a mayor in the city who understand what it means to go by the guidelines... so [are] doing well.”
.@SenDuckworth: “It’s better for Mr. Trump to have you focused on whether an Asian-American woman is sufficiently American than to have you mourning the 130,000 Americans killed by a virus he claimed would disappear in February.” nytimes.com/2020/07/09/opi…
Look, for the 100th time, if we had 40,000,000 pregnant woman but only administered 20,000,000 pregnancy tests then we would halve the number of births in our contry. Everyone knows this and yet... NOT REPORTED!
"I discovered that I could find meaning, and purpose, and even joy by connecting my struggle with the struggles of other people—if I made my personal struggle about more than me.” @AdyBarkan, we are in awe of your incredible humanity & activism. twitter.com/nowthisnews/st…
It’s been 11 days since we learned Russia has offered bounties for the deaths of American soldiers.
Donald Trump has yet to condemn Putin or take a single action to protect our troops, but he *is* investigating how the public came to find out he’s ignoring troops’ safety.
Sad to hear 1 of most talented and trained officers whose worked the Russia threat, who has served in combat, is retiring. Russia 1, America -1. Think of all the talent in USG for understanding challenging Kremlin that has been lost in last 4 years cnn.com/2020/07/08/pol…
Gov. Cuomo to Pres. Trump: "Do one simple thing: acknowledge to the American people that COVID exists, it is a major problem, it's going to continue until we admit it and each of us stands up to do our part."
"If he does not acknowledge that, then he is facilitating the virus."

Just watched #TheOutpost movie. Watch it if you can. Great film making and acting. A harrowing true story based on @jaketapper’s book. So much respect for the servicemen who sacrificed their lives for our country in Afghanistan.
No better gift to everyone in the world right now than #HamiltonFilm.
5 people watching and weeping.
Can’t get over how Tom Kail directed this and transposed it brilliantly. I’ve never seen a play on stage come to life like this.
@Lin_Manuel one of the best things ever. twitter.com/HamiltonMusica…
What's so unforgivable is there's now no mystery as to how to get COVID under control.
In CT, we kept everything closed until transmissions fell; we created an apolitical mask wearing culture; we tested aggressively.
2 months ago a hotspot. Today less than 100 hospitalized.
Carl Reiner was a comedic giant, one of the smartest comedy minds ever. He used his voice to the very end, speaking truth to power and the insanity we are all living in. So much respect for him. Sending love to his family. #RIP
