The brilliance of the Sunday morning defense of Trump carried on into the evening.McCarthy is asked about when Trump said, “I would like you to do us a favor though.”— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) September 30, 2019
MCCARTHY: You just added another word.
PELLEY: No, it’s in the transcript.
MCCARTHY: He said-“I’d like you to do a favor though”?
PELLEY: Yes, it’s in the White House transcript. pic.twitter.com/Sc8Lsv25xX
It is quite the revelation.This twitter thread is independent grounds for impeachment, evidence of consciousness of guilt, active obstruction of justice, and just plain old unhinged & terrifying. pic.twitter.com/T5RLcECUMb— Scott Hechinger (@ScottHech) September 30, 2019
Worth keeping in mind.Trump won with 46.1%. Romney lost with 47.2%. The difference is third party increase and decline in non-white vote.Take Wisc. Romney lost by 7%.Trump won by 1%. Romney got more votes. Unless you think 46.1% will win again, there is no need for D’s to convert a single Trump voter. https://t.co/03kGjDT71x— stuart stevens (@stuartpstevens) September 29, 2019
And because I can't get enough of this:If Trump made a “perfect call” to Zelensky and nobody did anything wrong then nobody — including Barr — would feel “surprised and angry” about being lumped in with Giuliani. https://t.co/QFVKmUWU6G— Tim O'Brien (@TimOBrien) September 29, 2019
Still looking for how low "low" is:The worst, laziest argument about the whistleblower complaint is that it’s inaccurate. It’s been shown to be quite accurate — by the White House. https://t.co/Moe6RFVQQV— Philip Bump (@pbump) September 30, 2019
Excuses are running out:I have visited nations ravaged by civil war. @realDonaldTrump I have never imagined such a quote to be repeated by a President. This is beyond repugnant. https://t.co/a5Bae7bP7g— Adam Kinzinger (@RepKinzinger) September 30, 2019
Well, that and after age 18, you're responsible yourself for your own actions.Best argument for Trump remains that, much like a child reared by wolves, the Trump and his family had no acculturation or experience following the law. And yet, having gotten a pass on his first collusion, three years into his presidency, that excuse is getting pretty thin.— Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) September 30, 2019
