The Kids Are Putting Elected Officials On Notice
Coinciding with the news New York's A.G. is suing to dissolve the mass-murdering NRA - "thoughts and prayers" - March For Our Lives has launched their first TV ad, on Fox yet. Facing an election where for the first time younger and/or darker voters will make up a third of the electorate - and targeting those voters in nine swing states - the devastating ad portrays America's often-racist gun violence before pivoting to warn those in power, "Yo ung people will determine the nation's future."

Lower Than the World
Gotta Laugh Or Cry: More grim proof of "the soul-shattering ignorance of our country's leader" in his deranged interview with The Axios' Jonathan Swan, whose actual, unsparing journalism (take note, U.S. media) repeatedly, often incredulously exposed Trump's idiocy - and put the Internet's meme machine into overdrive. Stunners range from Trump fumbling with bright-colored kindergarten-level graphs to his vile, vapid response to our 1,000-plus COVID deaths a day: "It is what it is."

Proud If Delusional Police: An Incredible Amount of Restraint
Six years after the murder of Michael Brown and a week after thug feds left Portland, savage video and a damning report show U.S. police continue to abuse and attack people, especially those of color, with little to no consequence. In the latest proof police are still "on George Floyd's neck," prosecutors just decided not to charge the Ferguson cop who killed Brown, and left his body in the street. Police: They're "upholding the rule of law." Michael Brown Sr: "Justice has not been served."

Fun With Numbers
Sunday, the day Cheeto promised the rollout of an "exciting" new health plan, he played golf; he did Saturday too. But while he "aced" his cognitive test, he doesn't seem to get math. We'll help: It was his 284th golf game and 377th day at one of his courses. We have 4.7 million COVID cases and 157,000 deaths, over 1,000 a day, or 9 per hole. We have 25 million people losing unemployment benefits, 54 million - 1 in 4 kids - who could go hungry, 0 national COVID plan, and one inept POS to blame.

To Walk With the Wind
The farewell to civil rights icon John Lewis by "a stick-swinging, Old-Testament Obama" was a rousing call to action and tribute to "the ways ordinary people can change the world...America was built by John Lewises.” More soul-stirring yet was Lewis' own grace-filled farewell to us all, and especially young people: "Though I may not be here with you, I urge you to answer the highest calling of your heart and stand up for what you truly believe. Now it is your turn to let freedom ring."

Trump Stooge Susan Collins Should Be Some Worried, Maybe Even Troubled
Further re-enforcing the fact it's long past time for Susan "I Guess I'll Vote For the Drunken Rapist" Collins to go, the Lincoln Project just released a blistering ad ripping her for what she is - a Trump stooge who "makes excuses for corruption, for criminality, for cruelty." She also released her own weirdly ruinous ad; purportedly against opponent Sara Gideon, it's so good at highlighting Gideon's stellar policy goals, from health care to election reform, Gideon should thank her for it.

Some Problems: Moron, Fascist, COVID, Doomed, Help
Oh, the stupid. Having spent last week boasting about his "amazing" cognitive triumph of repeating the five words, “person, woman, man, camera, TV” in order - "extra points!" - Trump just spent a coronavirus briefing touting a "very impressive" doctor who says hydroxychloroquine "cures" COVID-19 and masks don't work. She also says sex with demons causes gynecological issues, doctors are using alien DNA to treat people, and the world is run by reptilian humanoids. Nothing to see here.

Operation Diligent Valor: Teargassing Nurses, Shooting Medics, Attacking Veterans Who've Seen Their Own Atrocities, Thanks
Protests still swell in Portland, where the racist ghoul has dismissed "mothers" in the streets as "a scam" and " anarchists who hate our Country." Meanwhile, his thugs are exposed as "robocops of border control" with a famed "culture of cruelty" even as they continue to drag off moms, flash-bang vets, and shoot in the head a 52-year-old history professor who teaches " the historical slide by which seemingly vibrant democracies succumbed to authoritarian rule. We are on that slide."

Baseball Takes A Knee
At COVID-19 delayed, bi-coastal opening day ceremonies for Major League Baseball, players and coaches all kneeled on the field before lifting a black banner against "the current state of systemic racism in our country." From D.C. - Nationals vs. Yankees - to L.A. - Dodgers vs. Giants, the actions mark a small, key change in one of America's whitest sports, and a sign the convulsions in our streets are spurring athletes to challenge the long dismissive concept they "just stick to sports."

Moms, Dads, Vets, Patriots Respond to Trump Gestapo Surge: Right Back Atcha
Trump's move to go full fascist invasion by sending troops into cities "plagued by violent crime" wasn't unexpected, but to the masterful bungler of the art of the deal, the fierce resistance of a livid nation may be. In Portland, his goons have met with swelling protests, a resolute Wall of Moms, and a Wall of Dads using leaf-blowers to reverse the teargas. Now thousands more - moms, dads, vets and " just us normal people out here" - are vowing to do the same. So yeah, he may yet get his wall.
