Hey US media folks, here, I would argue immodestly, is how you interview a Trump supporter on Trump's lies:

Dear @RepDanCrenshaw, Have you read this 439 page report? Have you seen the testimony from Navy Seals that the man you hail as a hero committed atrocious war crimes? Slitting the throats of kids? Blowing off the heads of girls? For fun.

Yesterday we learned that multiple Navy Seals reported their commander would regularly park his armored truck outside of random neighborhoods and simply begin ordering machine guns fired and rockets launched into hundreds of homes - slaughtering people.

Yesterday we learned that multiple Navy Seals reported that their commander used his sniper rifle to blow the head off of an unarmed, non-violent Muslim girl wearing a flower hijab. She wasn't a threat and nobody even claimed she was. He did it for fun.

Yesterday we learned that multiple Navy Seals reported that their commander slit the throat of an unarmed, non-violent Muslim boy just because he felt like it. Killing him just for fun. And it hardly trended or made the news.

Behold! The universal journalist group shot.

Quoted @AmarAmarasingam

As expected, ISIS has just released video of the attackers in #SriLanka giving bayah (oath of allegiance) to Baghdadi. I'm going to do something I've never done before and post a short clip, because almost none of my Sri Lankan contacts have access to ISIS channels on Telegram.

It'd be great if someone was able to kill Baghdadi and provide evidence of his death. That's clearly who these people worship.

Unconscionable evil. “Fatima Ibrahim, the wife of [a] Sri Lankan millionaire businessman-turned-Islamic State suicide bomber...blew herself up with her unborn child, as well as three young sons, when police raided the family home on Sunday night.”

I’m bored of this Boston Bomber/prisoners voting debate now. The simple compromise is to give the vote to nonviolent/minor offenders who are behind bars while denying the vote to the most violent/worst (& much smaller number of!) offenders - murderers, rapists, terrrorists. Next.

Also, remember that Henry Kissinger, who is responsible for far many more innocent deaths than the Boston bomber, gets to vote.

Why do we keep stressing the importance of Israel's security? This graphic gives one important example. Almost every major city in Israel is in Hamas' rocket range, and they've proven their willingness to use them. Hamas' terror is just one of the many very real threats to Israel

If Palestinians use map failing to clearly mark Israel vs WB: they’re denying Israel’s right to exist!!! When IDF posts a map treating West Bank as part of Israel (as opposed to Gaza), reaction: *crickets* When senior US official approving circulates same map: *crickets*

Glad the piece is centered on the one and only, and brilliant, @ryangrim - the head of the Intercept’s DC bureau and one of the nicest guys in both DC and in US journalism.

We journalists don’t get to pick the headlines on our own pieces - we certainly don’t get to pick the headlines on pieces that others write about us. To be clear: I’m not a fan of the Politico headline, but the piece about me & my colleagues is fair/balanced and worth your time.

“As 2020 approaches, some see the Intercept as the political site of the moment, a disruptive force focused on one of the most important political stories of our time, the Democratic identity crisis.” - ⁦⁦@politico⁩ deep-dive on me & my colleagues:

Hundreds of Bahrainis like me are being made stateless – and the UK is complicit https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/apr/19/bahrainis-stateless-uk-allies …. The UK has sold £58m of arms to Bahrain in the last three years while the repression continues - these arms sales have to stop

The median U.S. adult Twitter user tweets just twice each month, but a small number of extremely active users post with much greater regularity. As a result, much of the content posted by Americans on Twitter reflects a small number of authors. https://pewrsr.ch/2ISKkwH

We can walk and chew gum at the same time. Democrats can make the case for impeachment while laying out a positive vision for the future of our country. @LissandraVilla
