What's the first law?

THREE LAWS OF THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY 1. Follow the money. 2. The controversies will distract you from the scandals. 3. Many secrets, no mysteries.

I had planned to unlock my Twitter account with a more dignified rollout plan, a deliberative content strategy, and focused editorial direction, but sometimes you see the bait and you just have to go for it. (1/n???) https://twitter.com/SeanTrende/status/1099026535586152448 …

Good thread about how @davidfrum’s http://FrumForum.com  served as a sort of proto-@BulwarkOnline almost a decade ago. While my politics were and are to the left of the mission statement of both journals, I was proud to be part of the former.

IMO, I think that for the project to succeed, it requires operating off two premises: 1) The problem pre-dates Trump & 2) Fixing the Republican Party is one of the most important political challenges of the modern era (15/n)

But ultimately someone needs to be attacking the grifters, charlatans, and racists from *within the right* because there will *always* be a party in America on the ideological right. (in addition to it just being the morally correct thing to do) (13/n)

This topic is passionate for me because my first paying job in DC was working for @davidfrum's website (FrumForum!) where we did a lot of stuff that is similar to what @BulwarkOnline is doing now. These activities included... (2/n)

This thread very emotional for me ...

Is there a whiter name on Earth than “Heath Mayo?” How is that not a parody?

We’ve all been at this #PrinciplesFirst thing for a few days now & ‘rebuttals’ like this about me personally are nearly all I’ve seen. One argument I haven’t seen a single time: “Actually, CPAC really is a serious purveyor of intellectually rich conservatism & here’s why.” 🤔

Asked about criticism of Labor Sec’y Acosta for his handling as US Attorney of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex abuse of underage girls, POTUS said “I really don’t know too much about it. I know he’s done a great job as labor secretary and that seems like a long time ago,”

This sequence was not threaded quite right. There are 12 parts -a and unfortunately the first of them is a thread within a thread ...

"I’ll make you a promise," @VP tells nation's governors at his residence, "that in this Congress, we're going to pass historic infrastructure legislation," to rebuild roads, bridges and more. A former Governor himself, Pence says governors will play a leading role in that."

More healthcare than Trump in this podcast

Here's @davidfrum on today's @BulwarkOnline podcast, joining @SykesCharlie to discuss taking the long view on politics and the GOP. From the Tea Party, the bailout, Obamacare, and now through the era of Trump.

Trump applauded Montana Rep. Greg Gianforte for criminal violence against a journalist. He literally clapped.

I joined my friend @anamariecox to discuss Jussie Smollett, as well as that white supremacist in the Coast Guard who wanted to kill Democrats and journalists. We talked about hate crimes in the Trump era, politician accountability, and a lot more. Listen.
