Trump looks likely to end his presidency settling another lawsuit for fraud, this involving a multilevel marketing scheme that bilked small investors during the financial crisis a decade ago. https://t.co/fGOISilwlz https://t.co/Gy1anzfaYA — PolitiTweet.org

We know about the high crimes that led to the impeachment because of one brave whistleblower inside the government. Trump illegally retaliated against the whistleblower, then for good measure tried to incite his murder. 19/x https://t.co/vmmC2EZx6q — PolitiTweet.org

This is a useful story by @AaronBlake about how Trump's accusations vs President Obama follow a familiar pattern of Trump falsehood. https://t.co/Q12o6gvsX2 Yet there's another pattern they follow: the Trump/Bannon idea of "flooding the zone with shit." https://t.co/o94zkcAjr8 — PolitiTweet.org

The fact that so many Americans refuse to do what's necessary to protect health guarantees that OTHER Americans will fear to do what's necessary to revive the economy. Double whammy: While "Don't tread on me" America prolongs the pandemic, NPR-tote bag-America deepens the slump — PolitiTweet.org

Once the disease bit, wise response demanded maximum international cooperation, on issues from equipment to research. Trump's chauvinism has again & again thwarted cooperation. Against a contagion, the relevant "us" is humanity: Chinese, Nigerians, Aemericans-we all get sick. END — PolitiTweet.org

When Chinese bartenders harass Nigerian customers as COVID-carriers, we instantly recognize the problem: Nigerian individuals didn't do anything wrong. They are not even a higher-risk population group! An in-group is angry, so it penalizes an out-group. Stupid, as well as wrong. — PolitiTweet.org

@billmaher The question is best answered with another question: "Why do so many people seem so badly to WANT to apply this name?" To ask that question is to see the answer: by using the phrase "Wuhan virus" or "Chinese virus" they gain identifiable human beings to blame for the virus — PolitiTweet.org

@billmaher Here's why not: The human mind is hard-wired to define fellow humans as "us/them" - them = enemy. The classical Greek word "xenos" meant both guest and enemy, and so apparently did the ancient Indo-European word from which "xenos" derived. — PolitiTweet.org
