This is happening in Moscow because a few independent candidates wanted to run for the city council and the Kremlin wouldn't even allow them on the ballot. Putin never gives even an inch. https://t.co/HajAFgMIw0

Pres. Trump lashed out at Rep. Elijah Cummings and described Baltimore — part of which the congressman represents – as a "a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess" in which "no human being would want to live." https://t.co/ZhBeQgNhdm

Cummings chairs the Oversight Committee. Trump’s attack is both racist demagoguery and a call to investigate the investigator. Anyone okay with that has chosen white supremacy over democracy. pic.twitter.com/jISbJJEqs3

Watch to the end…
Listen to @VictorBlackwell tell @realDonaldTrump that even though he is black and from Baltimore he is a human. Then call your representative and demand impeachment of this racist buffoon.
This is it. We’ve had it.
The hearings must begin NOW. https://t.co/uxRt2GOxXJ

If it wasn’t so depressing, I’d laugh at the fact that so many on the left have tried to defend Trump’s white working class base from charges of racism and bigotry when Trump’s own team recognizes that’s what motivates so many of the base.

Watch the voting machine used in US swing states get hacked to rig an election. @Jhalderm, @UMich, and @nytimes demonstrate why every voting district needs an auditable paper ballot. Voting machines are *known* to be insecure. https://t.co/juvU7K3Qdl pic.twitter.com/prsrOGK17z

We all know Trump has the NHS in his sights, a price Johnson is only too willing to pay.

I note that in Boris Johnson's speech in Manchester this morning, he said it was not and had never been "a city for negativity or navel-gazing" – a comment that suggests he has no idea where the Smiths started.
