Quoted @BillKristol

"While some Republican strategists are eager to dismiss these loyalists as a fringe element, many hold influential roles at the state and local level. These local officials...serve as the party’s next generation of higher-level elected officials..." https://t.co/W1CMDr3ea4

Who's been telling you that you have to clean house right down to the grass roots and through the earth's crust, and vote them all out? Me, that's who. For years. https://t.co/y94mjBTfsz

Quoted @AnaCabrera

President Trump apparently wants a big going away party. CNN reports he's expressed interest in a military-style sendoff and a crowd of supporters, according to a person with whom he has discussed the matter.

He should get a military escort. Not to honor him. To make sure he leaves and doesn’t steal shit. https://t.co/bTvxPSHn8a

Quoted @RadioFreeTom

Watching footage of the Loser Sturm overrunning the Capitol during the Beer Belly Putsch, I am struck again by how much of what plagues us is an addiction to the narcissistic idea that everyone is the most important person ever, that everyone should be the boss of everything. /1

This thread 👇🏻- what if it’s not all of the factors we keep citing - demography, economics, the loss of dignity, what if it’s.... narcissistic boredom. @RadioFreeTom illustrates his thesis: https://t.co/ETf6tO3zLq

Retweet if you think trying to violently overthrow our democracy should result in some consequences.

Let that be a lesson to you: if you storm the U.S. Capitol with zip ties, they’ll turn off the WiFi, maybe set up parental controls. https://t.co/l37Rtz9aYy https://t.co/DrXBo75uY6

Quoted @davidsiders

. @FrankLuntz asks his focus group of Trump voters for a word to describe the media, and you get some ‘fake,’ ‘bought and paid for,’ ‘feckless,’ etc. But then there’s Fil from Texas: ‘Emissaries of Satan.’ https://t.co/ThXII4R852

It's a kind of mass psychosis, the "Satanic Panic" of the early 1980s transferred to politics. https://t.co/cMvNLrgxE0

Quoted @DavidBegnaud

Chilling: @DCPoliceDept officer Michael Fanone said on CNN that rioters went for his gun, saying “Kill him with his own gun”. He told CNN, “It was all about self preservation...I “appealed to their humanity...I just remember yelling out I have kids” https://t.co/zUOafxRdBU

But remember, they're all about backing the blue, and stuff like that. https://t.co/EMj790qwTs

Wisconsin prosecutors want a judge to bar Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing homicide charges, from drinking or associating with hate groups after seen allegedly flashing white power symbol. https://t.co/wprBrh3cll

He might save lives if he just conceded

Quoted @Franklin_Graham

Shame, shame on the ten Republicans who joined with @SpeakerPelosi & the House Democrats in impeaching President Trump yesterday. After all that he has done for our country, you would turn your back & betray him so quickly? What was done yesterday only further divides our nation.

It’s not easy to be a Christian in America today but luckily there are people like Franklin Graham to make it virtually impossible. https://t.co/kQc95VBWAR

I regret spending time on stages with Franklin Graham.  I’m sorry to anyone who may have been encouraged to join his tribe because of my presence at his events. https://t.co/fZ9fGhlcKM

Folks — This will be the account for my official duties as President. At 12:01 PM on January 20th, it will become @POTUS. Until then, I'll be using @JoeBiden. And while you're here, follow @FLOTUSBiden @SenKamalaHarris @SecondGentleman and @Transition46.

Quoted @kylegriffin1

Trump has banned aides from mentioning Richard Nixon's name. https://t.co/cKcpEYzqkr

I can't speak for @dick_nixon, but I for one am glad he's keeping Mr. Nixon's out of his orange yap. https://t.co/iLRhfgcbkj

Quoted @JenniferJJacobs

SCOOP: Trump has repeatedly spoken by phone with Steve Bannon in recent weeks to seek advice on his campaign to overturn his re-election defeat, reconciling with his once-estranged ex White House strategist, sources tell me. Story out soon.

The Gristle Icarus rises again. https://t.co/j7brD4VkTZ

Quoted @JRubinBlogger

@rickwtyler⁩ “He will abandon principle, he will abandon conservative values for expediency and you’re seeing it again, only more dangerous.” https://t.co/tudNeW22lq

That's a fine lede: "Ted Cruz has long had a public reputation as an unctuous asshole." https://t.co/AauOx9Ulgn

Quoted @ddale8

The usual public schedule for Trump tomorrow: “President Trump will work from early in the morning until late in the evening. He will make many calls and have many meetings.”

Quoted @TheDailyShow

“If the Trump presidency was gonna come to an end, this seems fitting: a show of aggression ending with a bunch of people screaming at a building with no understanding of how democracy works.” @jordanklepper went face-to-face with the Capitol rioters: https://t.co/Q3VwB6X9Cp

You know how @jordanklepper gets people to admit they're morons? He turns on a camera and asks them and then just films it while they let it all rip. "Segway Stonewall Jackson" is an instant classic. https://t.co/4G57Y1e8Bn
