Aaron Sorkin is trending (for me, for some reason) so I'd just like to take a moment to say FUCK HIM. The West Wing and Newsroom were sexist af. Even in their time. Even more so now. That's your fckn legacy. Congrats.

Aaron Sorkin reveals he'd write an overly emotional female character who is outshined by the unbelievably witty lines given to the male actors and despite winning multiple journalistic awards she still needs help using email...........just wait! You'll be surprised!

Aaron Sorkin reveals how he would write election night, 2020: "Trump does what we all assume he will do, which is not concede defeat… For the first time, his Republican enablers march up to the White House and say 'Donald, it’s time to go'" bit.ly/33S6vMl

I'm 46. In my lifetime, two Republicans were elected without winning the popular vote, and every Dem shifted right, enacting policies to fuck over the poor and working class. So now I'm supposed to vote for conservative Joe fuckin Biden? C'mon man...

Thoughts and prayers...

Just kidding.

Tonight in Asheville far-right harasser Chad Nesbitt and his armed "security" tried to force their way through protesters. One of the security shoved a protester, got shoved back and stumbled into Nesbitt, who fell and hit his head on a parking meter

Only in America does a cop get charged with letting his bullets go astray instead of hitting an innocent victim.

Just kidding.....it'd happen in lots of countries. Humans suck.

The bigger focus: *Seven* Ventura County sheriff’s vehicles, a K-9 unit, a police helicopter and a Los Angeles Fire truck? FOR AN AIR GUN?

Tucker be like I agree with all that, but Democratic Socialism isn't good for ratings or book sales. Not nearly sensationalist or tribal enough. Gimme outrage! Gimme privileged status anxiety!

Private health insurance is a scam. Nothing more than death panels. Eliminate it.

Private health plans in the U.S. paid hospitals 247% of what Medicare would have paid for the same services.

That's the latest takeaway from our project on hospital price transparency. [thread] bit.ly/2FIfXcW

Oh please.........like Trump knows anything about Howard Zinn. He's just reading off something a hyper-partisan ideologue wrote. There's an upshot though - lots of people are going to Google Howard Zinn and find out what they've been missing
