Thought I was done for day but Trump keeps lying. @nytimes calls him out for lying about popular vote: #LiarInChief @Bach_Humbug Good point. #36!Abraham Lincoln: “No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.” (35/35)Aesop: “A liar will not be believed even when he speaks the truth.” (34/35)Maya Angelou: “Let me tell so much truth, I want to tell the truth in my work. The truth will lead me to all.” (33/35)FDR: Confidence thrives only on honesty, on honor, on sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection, on unselfish performance (32/35)Michael Jackson: “Lies run sprints, but the truth runs marathons.” (31/35)Adrienne Rich: “Lying is done with words, and also with silence.” (30/35)Khaled Hosseini: “When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth.” (29/35)Albert Einstein: “Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.” (28/35)Virginia Woolf: “If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people.” (27/35)Thomas Jefferson: “Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.” (26/35)Martin Luther King, Jr.: “No lie can live forever.” (25/35)George Washington: “It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.” (24/35)Here are some words of wisdom for @POTUS @realdonaldtrump aka #LiarInChief… (23/35)Refresher for you @POTUS… from @merriamwebster: “A fact is a piece of information presented as having objective reality.” (22/35)Lack of regard for facts and truth is a serious character flaw & we cannot have a #LiarInChief as president. (21/35)These LIES are just from ONE day. POLITIFACT has found only 4% of @realdonaldtrump’s statements to be true. (20/35)@presssec also lied about metro numbers, usage of floor coverings on mall, as well as fencing and magnetometers… (19/35)TRUTH: No claims to back this statement up. Period. (18/35).@presssec claims “largest audience to ever witness an inauguration. Period.” FALSE. (17/35)TRUTH: Aerial shots show otherwise. Period. (16/35).@POTUS aka #LiarInChief says 1.5M attended his inauguration & crowds went all the way back to the Washington Monument. (15/35)TRUTH: Cameras showed it began raining right when he started speaking. (14/35).@POTUS aka #LiarInChief says it stopped raining when he started speaking. FALSE. (13/35)TRUTH: @POTUS has criticized the intelligence community time & time again, most recently w/ tweet... #LiarInChief (12/35).@POTUS aka #LiarInChief says media caused feud between @POTUS and intelligence community. FALSE. (11/35).@nytimes counters @POTUS & @WhiteHouse #alternativefacts w/ ACTUAL facts (10/35).@POTUS aka #LiarInChief, we will never normalize #alternativefacts or lies. We will hold you accountable. (9/35)This is NOT normal & all of us especially media need to continue to call these #alternativefacts what they are… LIES! #LiarInChief (8/35)To call @presssec lies #alternativefacts further appalling. As @chucktodd said "alternative facts are not facts. They're falsehoods." (7/35)Both appalling & ironic is @POTUS made false claims at CIA in front of "& ye shall know the truth & the truth shall make you free.” (6/35).@POTUS says going to be an admin of "action" to help “forgotten” Americans. How does focusing on & lying about crowd size help?? (5/35)In speech @POTUS said “From this moment on it's going to be America First.” How do these LIES put anyone but @realdonaldtrump first? (4/35)To make demonstrably false claims about something as superficial as scale of inauguration crowd is disgraceful. #LiarInChief (3/35)Clearly, @POTUS @realdonaldtrump has problem with the truth. In fact, he lies. #LiarInChief (2/35)In first 24 hrs @POTUS makes clear ego, not #facts or #honesty, will be guiding principle for him & his administration. #LiarInChief (1/35)
This is just the beginning. #WomensMarch #WomensMarchPDX
Thank you, @OHSUNews, for the thoughtful conversation, insight & for helping Oregon lead on health care innovation.

Continuing convos w/ Portlanders of all ages who care deeply about direction of country—lots of experience, passion… agree, @nytimes: #Marijuana research shouldn't be this hard. Congress should pass our bipartisan reform bill.Can't have it both ways, @SpeakerRyan. CBO report hardly "meaningless." Those are the facts since you have no plan to replace. #RepealAndRunMillions will lose insurance & costs will increase for everyone. @RealDonaldTrump & GOP putting people's lives & livelihoods at risk.Nonpartisan CBO gives facts on repealing #ACA—shows it's TERRIBLE IDEA! GOP plan to #RepealAndRun is reckless, punishing 18M just to start.

Today in Portland thousands gathered to #SaveHealthCare. We will NEVER give up fighting for a health care system th… our America, no one should EVER be denied access to health care because of their income, age, gender, or pre-existing conditions.On the eve of what should be a proud moment for Donald Trump, he somehow achieved a new low, which for him is saying something.Meanwhile as a young man, Donald Trump was dodging the Vietnam War & getting millions from daddy.All talk? No action? No results? As a young man @repjohnlewis emerged as a civil rights leader—beaten, jailed, risking his life for freedom.
We will fight & reject ANY effort to gut #ACA to protect the most important health care reform in the last 50 years.#ACA repeal will have devastating consequences including taking health care away from millions of Americans! #MakeAmericaSickAgainGOP steadfast in plans to #MakeAmericaSickAgain, unsettle healthcare markets, while giving people no plan for what comes next. #RepealAndRun
Another victory in our efforts to protect Oregon's natural treasures!
This is why we need an independent investigation NOW! you need a different kind of madness, tune in at 9PM PT on @OPB for a much needed look at US nuclear weapons safety #CommandAndControlPBS
It's hard to think of a better use of my time on Jan 20 than to be in my District hearing from Oregonians.
.@PPFA provides range of health services for women & families. GOP action to undermine is clearly an attack on wome…'m with you, @RepDianaDeGette! There's too much at stake w/ GOP #ACA repeal efforts, especially health of women.… reading Constitution on floor--w/ so many biz conflicts, hope Donald Trump listened in & heard #EmolumentsClause & GOP better enforce.
Pleased that Obama discussed #DACA w/ Trump. We will not abandon children who put their faith in us. #DREAMers recounts 8 years of amazing progress & legacy we must all protect, starting with the #ACA.

I hope it's an indication for people that they have power & that sometimes the force of public opinion & what is right can make a differenceIt looks like the outpouring of rage from the American public against the GOP #ethics vote has had an impact. to be greeted upon my return w/ secret GOP vote to weaken #ethics oversight! It doesn't just look bad, it is bad. #DrainTheSwamp?
I hope Trump's communications team understands they won't be able to clarify what he really meant by that nuclear strike.
