This is horrifying. We — America — have failed so miserably to comprehend the lasting impact these events have on children, inducing the ones who bear no physical wounds.

Islamophobe crank @RabbiShmuley bought this ad in Sunday’s Washington Post smearing @IlhanMN as an antsemite. The ad, not Omar, conflates Israel and Jews – an antisemitic trope. Shmuley is the bigot here, not Omar.

Asked @PeteButtigieg why he’s not going to AIPAC. “I wasn’t invited!” He doesn’t rule out going in future.

Quoted @MattGertz

Based on some recent comments from President Trump and Lindsey Graham and from watching large quantities of Fox News, I think Republicans are planning on making Hillary Clinton's email server a key issue in the 2020 presidential campaign. (1/many)

This is a super interesting thread but the two-step required — Republicans insisting that Trump hearings are witch hunts but oh also our Hillary hearings are news — seems wildly optimistic.

Replying to @robrousseau

In 2008 he made the “Obama is articulate and clean” gaffe literally on the first day

So to summarize: Trump did not cancel previously imposed sanctions, he cancelled a classified round of large-scale North Korea sanctions that would've been a total secret had he not tweeted it out

I rushed to Syria on Jan. 28, thinking the last village under ISIS rule was about to fall. I stayed there for 3 weeks, waiting for a place the size of Central Park to be liberated. It took 2 months. Finally today, the SDF announced they had retaken Baghuz:
