@mastonaut Hi! When I try to toot animated gifs, they post as still images. I’m just attaching them using the “Attach images or videos” button. Does the app not support gif posting?

This didn't have to happen. It wouldn't have happened if we'd had national leadership that put human lives ahead of personal political concerns. It wouldn't have happened if so many Republican governors hadn't acted as a Trumpist cult followers and rushed to throw open states without regard for public health consequences.  

We were and are utterly without leadership and every single person will suffer as a result.

Please do something to change this in November.

Most popular grave stone line for 2020:

@TonyStark And paid for through our tax dollars by PPP. I'm happy to pay that, but Trump didn't contribute anything. He makes everything worse.

and Allegheny County friends:

Its time to make our voices heard and Take Back the White House! We are calling Democrats in Allegheny County to make sure they vote BLUE in 2020 this week and next. This is how you can get involved from home. :biden2020:

Sign Up so we can Flip PA Back PA to Blue!

@YinzPittsburghers

If you're out there and an organizer for Democratic candidates, especially where we can flip a seat from a Republican, toot about it.

I'd love to boost more of these.

@marissa People act like it's not a binary choice. Sure, you can vote for the Libertarian or Green candidate, write in Bernie or Elmo from Sesame Street. It all amounts to the same when there are going to be two choices competing for those 270 electoral votes needed to become president, and those will almost certainly be Biden and Trump. If we don't want four more years of Trump, we get over not having 100% of what we want, and realize Biden is much better for our interests.

Strong, coherent, and consistent messaging from the start - regarding handwashing, wearing masks, social distancing and staying home - would have prevented countless amounts of suffering and death.

Trump failed on every level.

I hope this story makes at least one person think twice right now. We need new leadership as fast as we can get it.

@TonyStark Good morning! It’s a Thurfriday! Your gif is hilarious! Exclamation marks!

The economy didn’t “add” jobs or create 4.8 million “new additional” positions. People went back to work to jobs that were put on hold when coronavirus struck. 

Here’s a real world example:

Two close friends returned to work. One is a chef, the other is a sales rep. The chef’s job was reduced from full-time, having a set salary, to part-time-hourly. His was a Catch-22 situation. If he turned down his old job, he would have lost unemployment benefits. 1/3

washingtonpost.com/business/20

So he returned to work at 32 hours per week at an hourly rate making 60% of his previous full-time salary with the only positive aspect being his health insurance benefits are safe.

The sales person works on straight commission in a business that depends heavily on retail and entertainment. Another Catch-22 callback. She's making 55% of her previous income.

When we read the numbers, it’s best to consider not the headline or summary, but the details.  We’re far from being “back to normal.” 2/3

And how many are now back in the unemployment line due to Trump and the GOP governors opening up the economy too early?

The economy did not ADD jobs, it RESTORED SOME jobs.  

If Trump had taken this seriously from the beginning, we would be on the road to recovery.  Instead he played GOLF and said it would go away. We are setting records with new cases. He tanked the country single-handedly.  Trump is the problem

Joe is the answer.

Vote for Joe Biden. 3/3

@TonyStark
And these rosy, splashy numbers are virtually always revised downward in the following quarter, anyway.

@TonyStark

I'm just waiting for January 20, 2021 when one particular person is added to the unemployment list.
