I've seen enough. Rep. Steve King (R) has been defeated in #IA04.

GOODBYE STEVE KING https://t.co/uDaAmGMGxF

I will not get my hopes up about Steve King. I will not get my hopes up about Steve King. I will not get my hopes up about Steve King. I will not get my hopes up about Steve King. I will not get my hopes up about Steve King. ... can’t they call it already?!

Rep. Jim Clyburn on CNN encouraging young people to peacefully protest: “I tell people all the time, I met my wife in jail!”

If your Christianity aligns itself with a president who walks through tear-gassed peaceful protestors so that he can publicly brandish a Bible before it aligns itself with the fight for black lives, you are a part of the problem.

For those of you who don't live in DC, we are not under siege by rioters here. The protests have been peaceful. We are under some sort of military occupation because this is the only place in the country Trump can bring out the military without running into major legal problems.

Not only did Rahul try to broker a "hostage"-like situation between the DC police and ~75 protestors he was sheltering in his home, he also ran a successful "covert mission" to get a Duccini’s pizza delivery man past the police "brigade," Esquire reports: https://t.co/NDMJLssEIy

I really need Joe Biden to lean into the Catholic Social Justice Tradition if he wants to beat this amoral man.

I still can't get over the fact that last night our government thought it was necessary to launch an ALL NIGHT STAND OFF in my residential neighborhood that involved gassing a private home because 100 young people were breaking curfew. How much did all that cost, you think?

I found this very inspiring, Rahul Dubey of DC who sheltered ~50 protestors on #SwannStreet last night, after emerging, gave this interview to @WUSA9 and @slazo88 “Our flag is hanging by a string” #2020Protests #savejenny #1stAmendment #compassion https://t.co/S5uVzgrrQe

"I hope that my 13-year-old son grows up to be just as amazing as they are." Rahul Dubey opened his home to nearly 70 strangers overnight and sheltered them during D.C.'s curfew. He says our country needs people like THEM. FULL INTERVIEW: https://t.co/hucxiraHk9 https://t.co/BKFMsTsSgk

I don’t understand calling for silence in the middle of mass protesting & uprising. Especially when silence is part of the problem. This happens frequently during uprisings against police brutality. I also don’t trust the music industry lol #BlackOutTuesday

Motorcade leaving now and just heard faith leaders are going to gather for a closing prayer once it’s over.

President Trump and the First Lady are scheduled to visit the Saint John Paul II National Shrine this morning. From @sr_simone: "“President Trump is now using the Catholic faith in another photo op to defend his appalling refusal to address racism and police violence in the U.S."
