Today's Daily Distortion is a particularly egregious one.

Now would be a good time to donate to the Black man tied in the polls with @LindseyGrahamSC: @harrisonjaime. #RIPRGB

Good morning. We're in the last gasp of minority rule. In 2021, we will fix the democracy the GOP has broken: a modern, expanded Court, an end to the Jim Crow relic filibuster, a Right to Vote const amendment and statehood. A republic if we can keep it. 1st stop: flip the Senate.

Empathy stitches us together when a thousand loud things act as seam-rippers, shredding the fabric of our connectedness. Empathy simply picks up a needle again, and begins stitching again—together, together, together.

The single most depressing thing about Trump supporters is that a lot of them are evangelicals The idea that Christ might approve of this vile, sleazy, pride-filled and rudderless oaf is an insult to his teaching

Quoted @AOC

Here’s what we’re NOT gonna do: give up. We don’t give up when people need us most. That’s not who we are. Our democracy is at a faint heartbeat; it was broken even before Trump. But so long as we can save lives, I believe we have an obligation to do so as we build a new world.

I like listening to our president in the future.

Quoted @kennerly

As a photographer who's been shot at by various hostile forces around the world covering stories that let you know what's really going on, I deeply resent Trump's recklessness with statements like this. Unamerican. Unpresidential. Unfunny.

Trump is a murderer. That should be the first sentence in every statement about him. He tried murder and enjoys it now.

Quoted @CBSNews

Nike released a new Colin Kaepernick jersey marking four years since he took a knee. It sold out in less than a minute.

👀 got mine. Remember when some snowflakes burned their Nikes bc of the Kaep deal? Free market didn't care about their feelings 👏👏👏

Quoted @jayrosen_nyu

The whole problem people want the Sunday shows to confront is: what do you do when misinformation and disinformation BECOME "generic political rhetoric." To say in reply, "I'm not going to push back against the generic— that's a waste of time" is a big fat surrender by @chucktodd

The Cokie Roberts Rule - If the false story "out there" is false, it's still "out there" and HAS to be reported on as if possibly maybe true. h/t @digby56

When the entire press corps cannot accompany the president, a "pool" reporter is assigned to go. Their job is to provide a factual account that everyone else can use. Check out @jdawsey1's pool report in what I would call the "sans normalization" style.

MCCONNELL: "After they change the filibuster, they're going to admit the District as a state. They're going to admit Puerto Rico as a state. That's four new Democratic senators in perpetuity. Once they get a hammerlock on the Senate, they're going to then pack the Supreme Court."

This talking point about the Senate is near-universal on the right and is extraordinarily dishonest. If four new Democratic senators were added right now, Republicans would *still* control the Senate - it would be 53-51 R rather than the current 53-47 R.

I’m Joe Biden and I approve this message.

Quoted @Corb_The_Lesser

@sahilkapur @GabbyOrr_ If we translate "preserving the Republic" from the dialect used by @SenateGOP, we get "end democracy, secure white rule, and keep the money channels open, foreign and domestic".

Republicans are the party of White Nationalism. I said what I said.

It’s truly shocking that 4 of 5 conservative justices on Supreme Court (Roberts, Alito, Gorsuch & Kavanaugh) were nominated by Republican presidents who lost popular vote

In fairness... let me tell you guys something... law school is not nearly as intimidating when you've ALREADY been mocked by Antonin Scalia. Like, what was a *law school professor* gonna do to me? Give me a B? What is dead may never die, y'all.

@AJDelgado13 AJ, you're a Republican. You know the moral crowd wants to eliminate abortions for "those other people". They'd be defending their 14 year old daughter's access to one were she pregnant. "It would ruin her life. Don't make her pay for a mistake".

Quoted @CollinsforGA

RIP to the more than 30 million innocent babies that have been murdered during the decades that Ruth Bader Ginsburg defended pro-abortion laws. With @realDonaldTrump nominating a replacement that values human life, generations of unborn children have a chance to live.

Hey jackass, the guy running Trump’s Campaign asked me to get an abortion. Twice. So kindly piss off bc there are more secret abortions amongst the hypocritical GOP class than anywhere.

During a sorrowful weekend Driftglass (@mr_electrico) finds ways to make me laugh. Driving in the car the radio starts "Cum on Feel the Noize" by Quiet Riot and he says "Aw look honey, it's our WEDDING SONG."
