I still can't believe that the trick to defeating journalism was to just be so openly evil that reporting on it accurately sounds partisan.— Johnny McNulty (@JohnnyMcNulty) September 19, 2020
Also, trick to getting away with crime: accuse the authorities of being out to get you— CAlwz (@DrSoup34) September 21, 2020
Can’t understand why it works for Trump, but not when black ppl try it...must be something about how they say it?

Trump's plan to challenge the 2020 election results if he loses, in one tweet https://t.co/aYQxzm43pY— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) September 23, 2020
This GOP plan to hijack the Electoral College and steal the presidency is not just some random person's musings. It's being actively discussed by the Trump campaign and senior GOP officials. https://t.co/BbAY4qFed8— Josh Dorner (@JoshDorner) September 23, 2020
The #TrumpCoupPlot is getting reported on by media besides THE ATLANTIC, which broke the story. This should be the top story on every network between now and November, with only occasional breaks for other news. This may be the biggest story in US history. https://t.co/Fts7MEOi6A— Seth Abramson (@SethAbramson) September 23, 2020
This is a great, scary piece that buries the lede significantly: Gellman has swing state Republican officials, named and on the record, saying they will send their own electors to the electoral college if Trump loses in their state:https://t.co/7csX4XYgGw— Isaac “It’s Not A Movie” Butler (@parabasis) September 23, 2020
At least in this version of the coup, the vote count is allowed to continue! https://t.co/9aQvzjqzNb— Brian Beutler (@brianbeutler) September 23, 2020
So the plan is for a full front page splash in the Thursday Times, alerting the public to the GOP’s nascent scheme to find specious legal cover to steal the election, right @nytimes, @TomJolly? https://t.co/lrld2LQ7qk— Brian Beutler (@brianbeutler) September 23, 2020
I mean I know it’s not duplicative emails on a laptop, but it seems like a pretty big deal, historically speaking.— Brian Beutler (@brianbeutler) September 23, 2020
Hope we’re in agreement now. Trump intends to rush a justice on to SCOTUS so she can provide the fifth vote for his plan to install himself as president over the will of the people—an emergency worthy of roadblock coverage from the paper of record. https://t.co/WonGuB0srG— Brian Beutler (@brianbeutler) September 23, 2020
Trump openly says that he wants to approve RBG's replacement before the election so SCOTUS will have his back when he challenges mail voting— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) September 23, 2020

That's A Shame. . . . A Damn Shame.

Life’s hard when you buy a Senate seat with your wife’s family’s money, then become a useful idiot for Russia-aligned intelligence goons, then your staffers, who aren’t quite as dumb, have to dial things back after you get caught. https://t.co/L56FNKRISr— Brian Beutler (@brianbeutler) September 23, 2020
Again, US intel has found no evidence of any such scheme in the works (https://t.co/mvAvE7OXmw), and experts have said any such scheme is extremely unlikely to work. Again, here (https://t.co/5PYWCKmxpX) is a thread from an expert. https://t.co/jovlWmzo9u— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
Seeking an "army" of "able-bodied" people for "election security," Donald Trump Jr. makes up a left-wing plan for "millions of fraudulent ballots that can cancel your vote and overturn the election."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
Twitter and Facebook have put labels on the video. https://t.co/Tucli3rafb
Asked yesterday about the lack of social distancing and masks at his rallies, Trump claimed: "I must be honest, I see a lot of people with masks. I also see a little bit of a spreading out."— Peter Alexander (@PeterAlexander) September 23, 2020
Later he tweeted this. https://t.co/Ez7LJBMaoo
Trump wrongly says "some categories of crime" are up "300%" in New York (no major category is up nearly that much, per NYPD stats, though there has been about a 100% spike in shootings), then wrongly suggests the city is now more dangerous than under Giuliani (still much safer).— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
Trump repeats his lie Mexico is paying for the wall: "They said, 'Yeah, but Mexico is not paying for it.' But they ARE paying for it. Mexico is paying for the wall...at the border...you know, all those trucks that go back and forth..."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
This makes no sense. Americans are paying.
Trump repeats his usual nonsense about how he saved suburbs from being "destroy"ed with an Obama-era anti-segregation rule, then says of articles praising him for this: "I wish the women living in the suburbs would read these stories."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
Trump is telling his usual story about his friend Richard who used to call him Don and Donny but now nervously-deferentially calls him "sir" and "Mr. President," so nervous on the phone "he can't breathe."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
Trump says he's lost a lot of friends this way.
Trump repeats his usual false claim that the Iran nuclear deal has "practically expired."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
Trump repeats his false claim that Harris called Biden "a racist" during the primary. Harris began her criticism of Biden on race issues by explicitly saying she doesn't think he's a racist.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
Trump repeats his alternative-reality lie that Biden would "destroy protections for pre-existing conditions," which were created under Biden in Obamacare, which Biden is trying to strengthen and Trump is trying to get killed.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
Trump repeats his false claim that Biden wants to ban "all charter schools."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
Classic Trump - he has accurate ways to go after Biden on charters, instead goes for maximalist dishonesty.
Calling A Racist "A Racist" Rut Roh, Reric!
Because why not, Trump lies that he passed the Veterans Choice bill Obama signed in 2014. (It was co-authored by John McCain and Bernie Sanders; McCain's wife endorsed Biden tonight.)— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 23, 2020
