TWEETS OF NOTE

  • (@SaritaBasnet01) Trump wasn’t ever called a “racist” until he ran against Democrats. Ben Carson wasn’t a “white supremacist” until he supported President Trump. Kavanaugh wasn’t ever called a “sexist rapist” until Democrats didn’t support his nomination to Supreme Court. It’s a clear pattern. Tweet.
  • (@senatemajldr) Democrats and their allies are trying to destroy a man’s personal and professional life on the basis of unsubstantiated and uncorroborated allegations. This is a smear campaign, pure and simple…aided and abetted by members of the United States Senate. Tweet.
