We've worked with @CSGV and @bradybuzz to share these safety recommendations with election officials all across the country - and we're excited to report that four of the five states we looked at are taking proactive measures to stand up to voter intimidation! https://t.co/SAYPuQdzQG

The president is actively encouraging his supporters to watch the polls - just like he did in 2016. There's a possibility that this could lead to incidents of armed intimidation at the polls like we saw in 2016 and 2018. https://t.co/MmhChGJf6W

As @Scott_Wiener puts it so well, QAnon is growing because people are feeling hopeless, anxious and mistrustful of traditional institutions: https://t.co/cr6XZ0kZOG

Trump "has plotted with his team on a pre-election promotional campaign to try to convince voters a vaccine is safe, approved and ready for mass distribution — even if none of that is true yet." Monstrous. No other word for it. https://t.co/2RFkhxOqWk

Quoted @NYDailyNews

Trump fires off on Dr. Anthony Fauci "and all these idiots.” “Fauci, if you listened to him, we’d have 700,000, 800,000 deaths,” Trump reportedly said on a phone pep talk to campaign staff. Trump is also branding Fauci as a “disaster.” https://t.co/kcLAl0RGDD

Trump is claiming that had he listened to Fauci, "we'd have 700,000, 800,000 deaths" Meanwhile, Trump's COVID task force and Trump himself have flirted with the idea of "herd immunity" which would result in hundreds of thousands of excess deaths https://t.co/AoBoo1hgI7

Very behind-the-scenes, but SAG-AFTRA is going to war against Actors’ Equity. https://t.co/Tsnlx4X3VX

”SAG-AFTRA is going to war....” Solidarity is so 2019 apparently. Disappointing. https://t.co/v3ojCZ33S0

Under Michigan's new directive, guns will be banned from these areas on Election Day: • polling places • clerk's offices • anywhere ballots will be tallied Those openly carrying guns may not come within 100 feet of buildings containing polling places. https://t.co/XsyNZXLE4v

Both siding it doesn't make you seem above the fray. It just makes you look a spineless buffoon. https://t.co/mCnceHKB1S

Quoted @AnaCabrera

NEW: Michigan bans open-carry of guns at polling sites on Election Day

Every state in the nation should do this. https://t.co/lc8z01eOV4

Amy Coney Barrett's extremist view of the Second Amendment threatens the safety of our nation. To understand why, we talked to Adam Skaggs of the Giffords Law Center. He explained why her stance is radical and what it means for the future. LISTEN HERE: https://t.co/4uSKN5tkpe https://t.co/wrTJyPBfpE

Quoted @fred_guttenberg

Last night, our next President @JoeBiden talked about bringing hope to America. In my new book "Find The Helpers" I talk about finding hope through the help of others. Mr. Rogers and Joe Biden give me hope. https://t.co/LL6y9mb1Lm

Fred's book is really great -- it made me cry, it made me laugh, and I can't recommend it any more highly! https://t.co/nv4ZTNzAHi

Quoted @igorvolsky

1/ I'm seeing headlines saying Trump "refused to condemn" QAnon at last night's @NBCNews town hall But that's not exactly right. Trump *legitimized* QAnon by saying he believes "very strongly" in one of its core tenets: fighting pedophilia He knew *exactly what he was doing*

As with David Duke, the Proud Boys, Charlottesville, he sends the clear and unmistakable signal in his initial comments and then everyone in the intended audience understands the wink & the nod when he inevitably walks back under duress. https://t.co/uco34mTn4T

@NBCNews @SavannahGuthrie @FBI 8/ Trump's decision to VALIDATE THE QANON CONSPIRACY creates a permission structure for QAnon adherents to cause violence if he were to lose the election. And that's exactly what he's setting up.

@NBCNews @SavannahGuthrie @FBI 7/ And because America's lax gun laws make it easy for individuals intent on causing harm and sparking political violence to obtain and stockpile the firearms they need to kill and injure people, the probability of violence is high.

@NBCNews @SavannahGuthrie @FBI 6/ QAnon researchers believe "If President Trump loses the election, some extremists may use violence because they believe -- however incorrectly -- that there was fraud or that the election of Democratic candidate Joe Biden will undermine their extremist objectives."

@NBCNews @SavannahGuthrie 5/ @FBI has declared QAnon a domestic terrorist threat. The Combating Terror Center at West Point says QAnon "represents a militant and anti-establishment ideology [which] finds resonance with other far-right extremist movements."

@NBCNews @SavannahGuthrie 4/ So why is Trump's embrace of QAnon so dangerous? QAnon adherents have already been connected to at least 12 violent plots or domestic terror acts since 2018. Check out this timeline: https://t.co/ZVdwZrCgyb

@NBCNews 3/ Trump told @SavannahGuthrie, "they are very strongly against pedophilia. And I agree with that." Asked if there's a Satanic pedophile cult Trump said, "I have no idea." Trump isn't just refusing to condemn: **he is actively legitimizing QAnon & feeding the conspiracy **
