Ted Wheeler hits back at Trump over his tweets about violence in Portland.
"Do you seriously wonder, Mr. President, why this is the first time in decades that America has seen this level of violence? It's you who have created the hate and division." https://t.co/OiDn6y8fEG

Trump’s spasm of crazed tweets and retweets this morning—e.g., the retweet of a QAnon follower claiming CDC data really show only 6,000 COVID deaths—reeks of really frantic desperation. Did they tell him last night that their own polling showed no gains from his convention?

Twitter has taken down a tweet containing a false claim about coronavirus death statistics that was made by a supporter of the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory — a post that President Trump retweeted earlier in the day https://t.co/QL65Bjw0Fe

Shit—Trump FDA has frozen US’s Phase 3 trial of the Oxford vaccine! Trial is paused because of “political pressure”. Dr. Larry Bush, trial's principal investigator, said Trump FDA is looking at bypassed altogether & just use EUA. Terrible!🧵 #COVID19 https://t.co/4Bs1sI1NeN

By contrast, Biden's is 46 percent, up from 40 percent before both conventions. https://t.co/6yXpYUQNC9

NYT's @KevinRoose says the MSM is missing what's happening on Facebook: "It's a completely parallel universe, in which Trump's response to Covid-19 has been fast and effective; in which these riots in Portland and other cities are THE biggest news story in the world…" pic.twitter.com/OdVYcE2FGA

Brexit is sacrosanct? What complete and utter rubbish. This endless talk of betrayal and high emotion is incredibly childish. Can’t we have a grown up conversation? https://t.co/TJ93mdnqyV

The Tory party backing the Brexit gang in their overthrow of May – and with it any attempt at good government in the wider national interest-was always a pact with the devil. A 26 point poll lead has evaporated in 5 months. Worse – splits and political disfunction – lie ahead.

You do realise that we’re just deciding between a hard Brexit and a really hard Brexit. The deal is done, we’re screwed already, our bluff has been called and the EU didn’t flinch.
It’s just a question of how awful it’ll be.

The Benn Act is irrelevant now, and no longer in force. No deal Brexit in 2019 meant no WA – which was what the Benn Act was about. The WA has now been signed, and no deal Brexit in its 2019 meaning is impossible. No deal Brexit now means no trade/ future terms deal. https://t.co/wIFlPhc6YO

This, @BorisJohnson, is the promise you made a couple of days after Leave won the referendum.
From the bottom of my heart, I despise you for breaking this promise. History will remember you as the man who flushed away the rights of every single UK citizen in order to become PM. pic.twitter.com/yMSZzimNIu

And still so many don't understand it's not just 'no deal' that will cause the destruction ..Johnson likely to get his 'deal' to grandstand …but *any* FTA won't avoid the mammoth NTB costs from leaving the SM & inc customs decs & RoO from leaving the CU https://t.co/5icSzFoKLC
