NEW: Defending Democracy Together, an anti-Trump group led by longtime GOP strategist @BillKristol raised over $35 million in dark money anonymous donations in 2020. They spent over $13 million, with much of going toward a project targeting Donald Trump. cnb.cx/3IuvclE

Dana Milbank is a egomaniacal lunatic and his employment in journalism is a blight on the industry.
.@Milbank: "There are tens of millions of people who are no longer on board with the American experiment. There are at least ten states... that have given politicians essentially the ability to overrule the vote of the people." #TheReidOut #reiders

Honestly, this is relatable.
NEW: Kamala Harris has long felt that Bluetooth headphones are a security risk. So, she insists on using wired ones, 3 fmr campaign aides told @rubycramer and me. That Bluetooth phobia remains (if you look closely, you'll see the clump of wires in hand) politico.com/newsletters/wes…

🚨 WATCH ⬇️⬇️ We need a conservative outsider willing to fight big government AND the big corporations who are taking away our freedoms and silencing conservatives. The only choice for Ohio voters is @JDVance1. #OHSen

There will be a lot of appetite to remove the Squad, but Schiff and Swalwell are Day One removals. Neither should have access to classified information.
You guys won't like where this goes.

Milbank is dumb. Anybody persuaded by Milbank is either also dumb or engaged in motivated reasoning.
Biden is attempting to salvage democratic norms. The people opposing him are using fascist tools of deception and voter disenfranchisement. Neutrality in this struggle is not a virtue.

I rest my case.
CNN’s @BrianStelter promotes Dana @Milbank column, “The media treats Biden as badly as — or worse than — Trump. Here’s proof.” Stelter: “Is that possible? Does it ring true to you? I think it rings true to my next guest.” That’s @EricBoehlert

These two men helped save the world. Daniel Inouye and Bob Dole suffered devastating injuries in Italy in the final month of WW2's European theater. They recuperated together in an Army hospital in Michigan and served for decades together in the Senate. dolearchivecollections.ku.ed…

I don’t think Rupar should be booted from Twitter. But his existence on this platform glaringly illustrates the partisan double standard at work. It takes a lot less to get kicked off if you’re on the right.

A significant part of Bob Dole’s legacy is his staunch support of Trump. He said “I’m a Trumper” as recently as July. usatoday.com/story/news/poli…

Bob Dole went all-in with Trump: "I'm a Trumper." He knew better, but this is what he chose in his final years. So, I'm going to hold off on the predictable whitewashing of our elected officials' actions.

“My wish…at the end of your days, you will be able to…say, 'I worked…I sacrificed, I endured, I did my utmost, I made the most of what I had & my country & my community are better because of it.'” Thank you, Sen. Dole, for living a life worthy of saying those words yourself.
