For some reason my twitter account has gone from "I have never seen a promoted tweet" to "I am drowning in promoted tweets" overnight. I'm blocking every advertiser I see.
If you've never seen this video from 8 years ago it's worth watching; it was when I decided I wanted Elizabeth Warren to be president some day. https://twitter.com/adamcbest/status/1185922455573090304
Agreed but this has been true since 1999. https://twitter.com/tlakomy/status/1185929305202802695
San Francisco voters: so is London Breed basically running unopposed? None of these other candidates seem remotely serious.
The bar on our corner dumps its ice out into this planter every day (I guess to water the tree) and for some reason I can't explain it amuses me endlessly that there's this one tree in San Francisco that thinks it snows every day.

This is a clear violation of the law and it will immediately be challenged in court and if there were any justice at all he would be thrown out of government for it.
Like the toddler throwing a tantrum he is, Boris has sent the letter requesting a Brexit extension as required by law, but hasn't signed it and accompanied it with another letter saying to ignore the first one. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-50112924

Reagan's biographer begins by saying that Reagan's reputation as an ideologically-driven moron who was all style and no substance is undeserved and has so far delivered 20 hours on confirmation that this was in fact exactly what he was.
In more West Wing plagiarism, Bartlet's ride to the hospital after the assassination attempt is a second-for-second re-enactment of Reagan's.
As I believe I have mentioned, Gabbard is a republican, and not even a moderate republican. https://twitter.com/WajahatAli/status/1185403123717869568
This thread is fascinating. My only semi related experience is I slip into a British accent when talking to British people (or watching a movie with British accents). I can't do it on demand tho. https://twitter.com/ebony_qt/status/1184604223633330177

I think it's worth angrily noting that Boris spent 3 years saying he could do a much better Brexit deal and then half-changed 1 thing and declared victory.
The way you *really* know Mark Zuckerberg is a republican is that he has acquired their habit of publicly stating obvious falsehoods that are easily disproven with minimal effort and expecting everyone to believe him anyway. https://twitter.com/mattyglesias/status/1184919834771017728
This 55-hour work week of the average CEO is in fact a 35-hour work week with 20 hours of personal time classified as work for no reason. In reality CEOs do not work themselves to death all the time. https://twitter.com/jonbernhardt/status/1185290570534739968
If your feeling at the end of this thread is "I still don't understand what's happening" then A+, you've got it, that's the situation.
What's actually going to happen is ?????? Depends what the EU decides to do and what legislation is brought next week but it's all unclear because the government has packed up its toys for the day and gone home: https://twitter.com/IanDunt/status/1185566506735886338
What Boris wants to happen is: Boris sends the letter, EU ignores it, Boris passes legislation allowing either the giant-warehouse deal or no-deal early next week, no-deal Brexit happens on the 31st, something something something, Boris is hailed as new Churchill.
What everybody else wants to happen is: Boris sends the letter, Brexit is delayed to January, opposition parties force an election to happen, Boris out of power, something something something, profit?
And also he intends to satisfy the Letwin amendment by bringing the necessary legislation to enact the new Brexit deal early next week: https://www.bbc.com/news/live/uk-politics-50107443?ns_mchannel=social&ns_source=twitter&ns_campaign=bbc_live&ns_linkname =5dab158d9b8394066d941801%26PM%3A%20Brexit%20legislation%20next%20week%262019-10-19T13%3A57%3A04.129Z&ns_fee=0&pinned_po st_locator=urn:asset:de9a9212-1dab-4f42-b931-8edefa86a304&pinned_post_asset_id=5dab158d9b8394066d941801&pinned_post_type =share
Boris however, in today's constitutional crisis, says he will send the letter but tell the EU to ignore it: https://www.bbc.com/news/live/uk-politics-50107443?ns_mchannel=social&ns_source=twitter&ns_campaign=bbc_live&ns_linkname=5dab15a756de320670a0a00a%26No%2010%3A%20PM%20won%27t%20ask%20for%20Brexit%20delay%262019-10-19T13%3A59%3A12.018Z&ns_fee=0&pinned_post_locator=urn:asset:0d38033d-179b-4181-83f9-43578137ea79&pinned_post_asset_id=5dab15a756de320670a0a00a&pinned_post_type=share
Because today is October 19th. If MPs don't agree to Boris' absurd deal today (and thanks to Letwin they can't) the Benn act requires him to send a letter to the EU requesting that the Brexit deadline be extended from October 31st to January 31st 2020. Boris has to send it now.
Boris' deal (amazingly) had narrow support; the Letwin amendment has knocked its legs out by basically saying you can't agree to Boris' deal until we've passed all the legislation required to make it work. That would obviously take more than a day to get done, which is important.
What was *supposed* to happen today was: Parliament was supposed to vote on Boris' new "Northern Ireland is a single giant customs warehouse" fudge on Theresa May's deal. This vote has not happened; instead a thing called the Letwin Amendment has passed: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-parliaments-50098128

Brooks also describes Warren as a "protectionist" on trade as if we are not fighting a trade war with China as we speak.
