Retweeted by David LeonhardtThese rosters are both likable and yet ... It's the team with the racist logo vs. the team owned by the Trump campaign donor. Ah, 2016.
Wow. ABC tracking poll Clinton now leads Trump by 19 points among white college graduates, a group no Democrat has carried in modern elections

NYT @DLeonhardt labels debates a 'failure of journalism' for ignoring climate change. Check out the chart!!
Retweeted by David LeonhardtPeople ignore that Trump tax docs were only published because Times was able to verify their authenticity with CPA who prepared them.
Retweeted by David Leonhardt @LoganDobson ah, yes, I see that argument even if I don't subscribe to it. Aides, donors, pollsters, volunteers have similar issue. @LoganDobson What's the endorsement threshold for number of readers in a state? I'm confident The Times clears it.Former head of @GOP won't vote for @realDonaldTrump b/c Trump gives voice to racism

Retweeted by David Leonhardt5. I have my theories what is wrong (it is about inequality. And destroying many people's sense of meaning). But they just theories.
Retweeted by David Leonhardt3. It is an anger & humiliation that is mostly destructive. Because what is presently constructed isn't working for lots of people
Retweeted by David Leonhardt2. X% of voters are angry. Regardless of if it is because of latent racism coming to fore, or about eco inequality. It is there and growing

Retweeted by David LeonhardtTrump 2020! asked about Syria, abortion and tax policy, about poll numbers and foundations. And never about climate. spent Obama's 1st inauguration evening w/his Kenyan relatives. They were totally blown away by... the peaceful transfer of power.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtHere is a list of every subject the moderators raised during the debates. It adds up to a failure of journalism.… is a complete list of every question subject asked during the four debates this year...

Retweeted by David LeonhardtIt's a sign of how squeezed GOP is by trump's voters that so few electeds will speak out about his "suspense" line re: accepting results
Retweeted by David LeonhardtSharing this again, because it's a really stunning sentiment.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtI know refusing to accept election big but close second is denying #Russia behind election hacks, defying entire US Intel community #debate

Retweeted by David LeonhardtThis would be credible if it was not for Trump himself refusing to say it.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtAmazing thing is that those are all more or less direct quotes from Trump

Retweeted by David LeonhardtThe most compelling witness against Donald Trump is Donald Trump: "I just start kissing them...I don’t even wait....Grab ’em by the pussy. "
What could possibly go wrong?
