In the past 26 years, I must have attended over 50 conferences of various parties. This is the strangest. In theory, the Conservatives could be out of office in days. MPs are not clear whether they should be in Manchester or Westminster. Brexit all that matters. Strange times.

This is interesting – rather suggests that the Palace won’t put up with much more nonsense from the Fatberg of Dishonesty, should he attempt another sneaky prorogation… 😌 #JohnsonMustGo #RuleOfLaw 🇪🇺🇪🇺🇪🇺 pic.twitter.com/unNnNCYVlA

The lack of self knowledge & the arrogance in every Tory Minister’s speech from their party conference platform in #manchester is staggering – they claim to be the arbiters & protectors of democracy but in fact they are the ones destroying democracy #Brexit

Good read on how Trump pushes invented conspiracy theories.
It's not a new tactic. It's honed over decades.
He uses it to undermine his opponent.
Now, his opponent is American Democracy itself. https://t.co/JjnGtulQ6P

As you watch Trump’s defenders lie, deflect, and distract today and in the coming weeks, remember that they don’t care about being caught in obvious lies. Calling bullshit still means you’re talking about the bullshit, not the facts.
