Violence doesn't belong in politics.
Well, actually. They should have a duel
Historically accurate, I'll give you that.

Closest thing to real life human centipede.
“Don’t rule out that the reason Pelosi hasn’t sent impeachment to the Senate is to hurt Warren and Sanders, and to help Biden,” Ari Fleischer, a former White House press secretary for President George W. Bush, tapped out on his iPad. “By timing the trial so it takes place during the Iowa lead-up, she has leverage over the liberals.”

Mr. Fleischer’s message was retweeted 1,400 times.

Seven days later, Mr. Fleischer’s theory that Speaker Nancy Pelosi was attempting to influence the Democratic primary — for which there is no evidence — was being promulgated by President Trump.

“They are rigging the election again against Bernie Sanders, just like last time, only even more obviously,” Mr. Trump tweeted on Friday, claiming his Senate trial was designed to keep Mr. Sanders, the Vermont senator, grounded in Washington instead of campaigning in Des Moines ahead of the Feb. 3 caucuses.
NYTimes finally beginning to grasp what's going on.
There was nothing new in terms of the process that got the idea in front of Mr. Trump. But the evolution from online conspiracy theory to Fox News fodder to presidential talking point demonstrated how a world of conservative influencers, Republican lawmakers and online media outlets can drive disinformation through repetition and amplification.

Trump breaks his own Twitter record with 132 tweets or retweets as of 4:45 p.m., the most of any single day of his presidency, as he defended himself and lashed out at the House managers.

Don’t worry. We have been told ITT that only Trump will not accept the results of the election.

Long knives out for Bernie

Wow - Sanders +6% in the last day (though Bloomberg still the only D candidate with election chances >50% conditional on winning the nomination). Trump still comfortably the front runner to win the Presidency...

Am I the only one that thought "that's not Graham" when looking at his profile? Was very confused at first.

Also, the guy in the back is not impressed.

Not sure who is making those bets.
Because generic dem/rep is a worthless poll.

Honestly I feel like it's even more credit if he did it just with his phone. I feel like I could only hit that if I only typed at my PC and it was just a stream of nothing thoughts.

Smarter maths people can fact-check this, but presuming he hit that number after 12 hours of being awake, that's like one tweet every 5-6 minutes. Figure it takes a minute or two to compose (well.... 'compose') and type each one out, that means he was engaging the Twitter machine every 3-4 minutes. As an average.

Thankfully he didn't have anything else going on so that he could focus his full energies on the task at hand.
