If you don't want to bully trans people, you should not support JK rowling who, just the other day, advertised for a website whose purpose is to sell merchandise that bullies trans people.

And, for the record, I think "how are you going to pay for it?" *can* be a valid question if it's intended in good faith (it often isn't). The double standard, though, is infuriating.

Compare how often Democrats get pressed "how are you going to pay for it?" on their plans to how un-thoroughly the press is holding Trump's feet to the fire on what exactly his healthcare plan even is

What are Catholic beliefs, exactly, about the intentional psychological and physical torture of children? I'm assuming the answer is something along the lines of, "not good." So why doesn't the GOP modify its policies to reach more Catholics?

Given we're engaging in a made-up debate about whether or not Democrats hate Catholics, I'd like to ask: How many of the parents who have had their children torn away from them at the border are Catholic?

Dems: we’re gonna focus on healthcare and saving the ACA GOP: we’re going to talk about ACB’s faith and character and pretend the Dems are attacking it Trump: CAN’T WAIT FOR OBAMACARE TO BE DESTROYED!!

This poll shows how America is ruled by anti-majoritarianism and why Republicans are so desperate to cling to power. White men make up 31% of the voting electorate. White w/o college is 41%. 26% of all voters are white evangelicals.  This is not how a democracy should work. https://t.co/OXTiL0KLeN

Historically the claim that one must be “virtuous” to vote and serve on juries is explicitly used against women, non Christians, & racialized others. It’s also been used to impugn testimony of witnesses to crimes against the above groups protecting white male perpetrators https://t.co/x60YWLzdKW

Historically "morality" or "virtue" has had a lot of discriminatory legal purposes. Early naturalization laws included both "whiteness" and "good moral character" as requirements for naturalization /1 https://t.co/pPHV9rN7eO

Silly that @playbookplus would even include this given it flies in the face of all nonpartisan public polling. Setting that aside, why is this absurd? 1) It’s a 40-person focus group — not a representative survey. 2) Numbers are missing. If truly compelling, release them. https://t.co/86Q2qIaTbC

Watch Republican @VotePaulJunge learn why you should never use the health insurance problems faced by @ElissaSlotkin’s late mother as a political talking point when you don’t have a plan to solve the problem of pre-existing conditions. https://t.co/KqRCjJKSHJ https://t.co/AbId3xzCXj

I believe Kyle Rittenhouse is innocent and was acting in self defense, as his life was in jeopardy from violent criminals attacking him. I will also oppose ALL gun control legislation that @MomsDemand and @Everytown support. I will defend our GREAT Second Amendment always! https://t.co/nxdY7HBAIA

I want to say the GOP opened this Pandora's Box, but that seems like a bit of an understatement for this dumpster fire. Either way, this woman is about to be in Congress and she didn't come out of nowhere. https://t.co/uCeVKm40NQ

In a matter of months, any condition on your medical records could become a reason to deny you coverage. Or the person you know who has cancer might see a cap on coverage. We have to stop yelling at each other & we need to fight together. We all want universal care.

We've spent the last few years yelling at each other about Single Payer and, in the meantime, they might just take away the ACA.

Two Ronald Reagan appointees, Justices Ripple and Flaum, disagreed, ruling that guns rights are also reserved for "virtuous citizens."

Only Amy Coney Barrett claimed it should be more difficult to revoke gun rights than voting rights.

🚨: In a 2019 dissent, Amy Coney Barrett said the Constitution protects the right of non-violent felons to own guns, but does NOT protect their right to vote.

Gun ownership is an "individual right," but voting is a "civic right" belonging "only to virtuous citizens", she wrote. https://t.co/rar2WByuIf
