Will Fox News's vice-grip on politics change post-Ailes? @NYTnickc has the scoop... Kaine. Is. Just. So. Happy.
@EmilyABC But apparently, there are no replacements. So: No (second) convention for you? @EmilyABC In my case, your awesome collegiate races back to the Red Roof Inn for a desperate recovery mission. @AdamS You need the same one for Philly. There will be no replacements. @amyewalter Oh, I am typing this from DC, having had one of my heroic colleagues race back to room 149 at the Red Roof Inn — Westlake...🚨🚨🚨 PSA: Do not throw away your yellow Secret Service convention credential pass. I repeat: Do. Not. Throw. It. Away. 🚨🚨🚨 @rachelsklar Thanks! I've been surprised to learn about myself that I'm someone who actually likes taking over the NYT Snapchat...Trump at his Trumpiest. Rambling speech-rant with nods to National Enquirer and Penthouse.
