I thought blue lives matter was a GOP thing. Tonight the funeral lying in state for the fallen officer, Brian Sicknick, is being covered solemnly on MSNBC and CNN. But not covered at all on Fox or the right wing networks ( OAN, Newsmax) So I guess that was all BS for the GoP. pic.twitter.com/aIhbZaiuq9

That is not The Onion..
Sens. Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, Roger Marshall, Rick Scott, Tommy Tuberville, Richard Shelby, Josh Hawley, Marsha Blackburn, Marco Rubio, Tim Scott, James Lankford, Bill Hagerty,Bill Cassidy. RT to expose likely Republican homophobia. Disgusting! Love is Love. This sickens me. https://t.co/Kqvhj2lEMM

Even though Senator Dick Durbin was just named as the new Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lindsey Graham remains the active seated Chair. This is such bullshit. Why are Democrats allowing Moscow Mitch to obstruct Senate progress? They’re in minority now, act like it!

One Texas woman is granted permission to vacation in Mexico after engaging in insurrection at the Capitol.
Another was deported to Mexico after being a cooperative FBI witness to the massacre in El Paso.
There are two systems of justice in America. https://t.co/gODV10ZxAS

This is absurd. First, they unconstitutionally blocked Garland from having his confirmation hearing when he was nominated for the SCOTUS. And now THIS? I know Graham wants to continue to protect Trump but this must stop. Trump investigations must not be obstructed like this. https://t.co/aZcfwIwZlM

As a public defender, I represented a 16yo for whom I had to beg a judge for release (with escorts, in handcuffs) to go to his dad's funeral.
Meanwhile, someone accused of participating in the insurrection may get to go on a bonding retreat in Mexico.
Two. Systems. Of. Justice. https://t.co/rJYTurZD4S
