Consuming so much content right now, you guys.

RT @jonrog1@twitter.com: In the evenings I'm teaching myself to code so I can write an app that, on your deathbed, texts you the total amount of time in your life you spent complaining about women, POC and LGBTQ characters in video games and genre movies.

RT @JYSexton@twitter.com: Just want to point out that this administration has regularly used phrases like "protect our culture," "change our culture," and has referred to immigrants as "animals" that "infest."

They are not hiding it. They're telling you everything you need to know.

RT @LeeCMcIntyre@twitter.com: Cognitive scientists recommend using a "truth sandwich" to report lies: say the truth, then show the liar telling the lie, then fact check it. Otherwise the well known "repetition effect" allows the news media to be used to amplify lies. twitter.com/brianstelter/statu

Now it REALLY feels like money laundering is the only viable explanation for MoviePass's business plan.

Give me your hungry, your tired, your poor I'll piss on 'em
That's what the Statue of Bigotry says
Your poor huddled masses-let's club 'em to death
And get it over with and just dump 'em on the boulevard

Meant to be ironic commentary, not official policy.

RT @KamBrothers@twitter.com: Our daughter has informed my Mexican-American wife she’s rooting for Germany because our Czhihuahua/Dachshund mix is half-German. This isn’t going to end well. AK

This is why we have to stop normalizing the current Republican administration’s behavior. It doesn’t start with 40’s-era Nazis. It builds from 20’s-era Nazis.
RT @dynamicsymmetry@twitter.com Seeing people saying "but that one shelter looks nice, they can watch Moana, stop comparing this policy to Nazism". Oh, my dude. Ohhhhh okay siddown for a sec

Abolish ICE.
RT @kenklippenstein@twitter.com SCOOP: A fmr top CIA interrogator is training ICE's deportation agents in interrogation methods, documents show.

He was hired *3 days* after the Trump admin authorized its policy of separating undocumented families caught crossing the border.

RT @NormEisen@twitter.com: This is one of the sickest things ever said by an American president. It is no different than Trump saying he wants to be feared by Americans as Stalin, Mussolini or Hitler were by their populations. twitter.com/dave_brown24/statu

RT @waltshaub@twitter.com: Sen. Graham just admitted on CNN to Kate Bolduan that the goal of ripping terrified children from their desperate parents is deterrence. I’ve been saying all along that the plan is to commit sufficiently horrific atrocities to scare people away. This is state sponsored terrorism.

RT @Limerick1914@twitter.com: This biblical passage was used by the Dutch Refomed Church in Apartheid South Africa. It was also used by some Christian denominations in Nazi Germany to justify accommodation with the Third Reich. twitter.com/cnn/status/1007397

My DNA test results came back, confirming me as Very Extremely White.

RT @brianefallon@twitter.com: Corker could force McConnell's hand anytime he wants by withholding his vote for any of the judges McConnell cares so much about. But Corker doesnt ever use this leverage because he is just as gutless as the rest.

Really thought someone would have bolted their Elon Musk flamethrower to their Segway and gotten themselves killed by now.

RT @aravosis@twitter.com: Trump caught in a huge lie. Anyone captured or killed in Korea would be a minimum 83 years old today. So their parents would be, conservatively, 103 years old. And Trump wants us to believe lots of those 103 year old parents of Korean War vets approached him during the campaign. twitter.com/atrupar/status/100

RT @KaivanShroff@twitter.com: This is Otto Warmbier, an American college student jailed in North Korea for stealing a poster.

Here, he begs for forgiveness.

When Kim Jong Un returned 22-year-old Otto to the U.S., he was deaf, blind, and died within days.

RT @JuddLegum@twitter.com: 1. Hey, remember the MASSIVE WAGE INCREASES everyone was supposed to get after the Trump tax cuts.

Trump's economists predicted they would average $4,000 per year

Well, there is new data that came out yesterday that tells a very different story
