TWEETS OF NOTE

  • (@DLoesch) I am amazed at the number of verified progressives who think mocking a fatal train crash is OK because GOP members were on board. This is the state of political discourse? Tweet.
  • (@JFNYC1) What I find ironic about the FBI questioning the credibility of #ReleaseTheMemo, is that this comes from the same people who had no problem using a discredited dossier to obtain a #FISA warrant on a presidential campaign. Tweet.
