Boris Johnson going for the “I’m sorry you feel that way” defence for his letterboxes comment on a split-screen next to an Imam really cannot have been the visual he was hoping for.

Still at least we know why Boris Johnson was hiding now. He's shit. #OurNextPrimeMinister
— Otto English (@Otto_English) June 18, 2019
I think we can now see why Johnson’s camp were so keen to keep him hidden! A great hosing gush of unconvincing waffle whenever he opened his mouth, and a failure to prepare for even the most obvious pitfalls, eg Heathrow.

"But back in Westminster you don't have much momentum do you?"
"I'm against momentum, Nick."

So committed to Brexit are members of the Conservative and Unionist Party that they would be willing to see Scotland (63%) and Northern Ireland (59%) leave the UK in order to secure it. https://t.co/9iJKlB292v pic.twitter.com/4j7bCPg6aK

“Unless you play a guitar”?
The Fake News doesn’t report it, but Republican enthusiasm is at an all time high. Look what is going on in Orlando, Florida, right now! People have never seen anything like it (unless you play a guitar). Going to be wild – See you later!

This seems like a good time to remind everyone that the Trump administration is actively supporting a lawsuit that would rip away protections for 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions while providing absolutely no alternative. https://t.co/itdRAPFnnl

Bill Barr says he doesn't care about his legacy, and that "everybody dies." And that's fair: Life isn't a popularity contest. But when I'm gone, I'd like my wife, my daughter, and at least a handful of my fellow citizens to think I was something more than just a Mob lawyer.

It is very unusual – perhaps entirely unprecedented – for such a high-ranking DOJ official to be involved in the specific prison designation for a particular inmate. Anyone else in this situation goes to Rikers and that’s that.https://t.co/wtHrP66hCp
