When Kamala Harris was elected as the SF District Attorney — detectives wouldn’t even look at her.
She’d speak and they’d respond to her white male subordinates.
Tomorrow she becomes the highest ranking woman in the United States and the most powerful black woman in history. pic.twitter.com/8Dyk8onEgr

This thread📌 about Eric Whitehead epitomizes the peril we are in from the anti-maskers. The link this nurse makes to other egregious behavior is not hyperbolic. These cops watched their colleague abuse several women and said nothing. That's the wrong side of the thin blue line. https://t.co/WAOdKTvic7

I'm an ER Nurse in Seattle. Last night @SeattlePD officers came to the ER to obtain a statement from an assault patient. One officer, Eric Whitehead, blatantly refused to put a mask on while standing in a high-traffic hallway. There were covid positive pts in nearby rooms. 1/

This is our National Guard, sleeping in the halls of the Capitol today, as captured by my colleague @DaniellaMicaela. And unlike House members who choose to stay in their offices to either save money or make some kind of a point, they have no House gym or shower to use. pic.twitter.com/4wh9JhxkWO

I wish Joe Biden would reconsider holding his inauguration outside…he needs to move it to a safe location. Fir the good of the Country.
What are your thoughts today?
This attempted coup is disgusting…here are a few thoughts on the violence this past week.
I think it all stems from the fact that a black man was elected President some years ago….tRump supporters have something in common. They are white supremacist, bigoted assholes.
In 1923, Adolf Hitler led a failed coup. He was treated leniently. Germany moved on.
A decade later, he was dictator, and the worst disaster in the history of the civilized world ensued.
In 2021, when the president of the United States leads a failed coup, we must not move on.

After this violent coup attempt, incited and maybe coordinated by Trump, where we are lucky many House members or Senators were not taken hostage or worse, Trump is still sitting in our White House tonight, rather than removed from office or otherwise taken into custody.

How and why is someone close to the WH familiar enough with the rioters to be “in touch with them”? That tells me this is a coordinated effort. That’s called conspiracy. https://t.co/FjGkRStleX
