    Warm. Content.

    Urging: just five minutes more.

  • 16:26:19 Retweeted @jonallendc 10:43:48 This @kasie interview with Rep. Rob Woodall, R-Ga., from last night is … pick your word.He didn’t read the Mueller report, and it’s hard to identify a reason in what he says about that that doesn’t come down to plausible deniability about what’s in it.
  • 16:36:54 Retweeted @nprpolitics 15:55:05 this was supposed to be a politics news tweet but we got so excited watching Sesame Street at the @nprmusic Tiny Desk that we forgot
  • 17:01:49 Retweeted @AdamParkhomenko 16:41:41 I think the words I’ve come to hate the most are “Democrats have reached a deal with DOJ.” Keep trying to kick that football, folks. I’m sure Lucy is a completely different person now.
  • 17:03:48 Retweeted @waltshaub 12:21:56 This is the sort of thing that should lead to the impeachment of a corrupt official — that is, if her corrupt husband weren’t in a position to block that impeachment. We are now a full-fledged banana republic. We have nothing to teach the rest of the world except what not to be.
  • 17:05:22 Retweeted @ThePlumLineGS 16:52:46 The Mexican foreign minister is now flatly contradicting Trump’s claim of secret additional provisions that Mexico supposedly agreed to, the NYT reports.Keep in mind that Trump tweeted that these secret provisions were “fully signed and documented.”

  • 19:23:05 Retweeted @yashar 19:20:12 To think that testimony by John Dean, who appears on CNN multiple times per week, would be agenda-setting and widely watched shows a detachment from reality.It’s not as if Dean is making his first comments since the Mueller probe began.
  • 19:30:12 I am a junky for this stuff, and normally would have been listening to audio for any important hearings and such on my headphones while I work. But I’ve heard John Dean talk dozens of times on this. I didn’t even think about tuning in this time.
  • 23:10:48 Retweeted @petridishes 20:20:44 what if as a nation we just did one BIG Kickstarter once a year to help everyone pay medical bills instead of 327 million individual ones
