Pressed on Pres. Trump's false claim about testing at an ABC town hall, Adm. Brett Giroir testifies that ending testing would not end spread of COVID-19.
"The more testing you do, the more cases you will discover. But the cases are there no matter what."
I hear Sochi is lovely this time of year. ☕😏

@TonyStark Trump has created no jobs, no infrastructure, and has only served to damage people's standard of living unless you're a 1 percenter.
People need to stop believing that Republicanism has them one takeaway from a person in need that will make them millionaires.
In Pittsburgh or the area? Come by tonight for a #VoterRegistration drive and film screening of "All In: The Fight for Democracy" with Stacey Abrams.
It's time we are serious about being registered and making sure people we know are, too. Pennsylvania is a key 2020 state.
The only poll that really matters is on 11/3. #Vote
By the way, it's a total con job that Trump gets decent marks on the economy. He has done his best to ruin it with his foolish trade wars, hapless handling of the pandemic, and his fawning of lobbyists.
All economic figures show that we were better off the last 3 years of the Obama administration than these years of Trump's. That message needs to get out.
Wisconsin poll shows Biden holding narrow edge over Trump: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/09/15/post-abc-wisconsin-poll-shows-biden-holding-narrow-edge-over-trump/?arc404=true
He baselessly blamed Joe Biden for not instituting a national mask mandate, even though Trump repeatedly discouraged and mocked mask-wearing. Biden is currently the Democratic nominee for the Presidency and thus cannot issue a nationwide mask mandate until he is elected and is sworn in on January 20th, 2021. #TrumpTownHall #TrumpLied200KDied #BidenHarris2020 #COVID19 #JoeBiden
He lied his butt off when he said that "up-played it". In fact, because of Trump's reckless downplaying of #COVID19 (not to mention several GOP governors such as Ron DeSantis, Brian Kemp, Kim Reynolds, and Kristi Noem), the USA is in a really bad position on handling the pandemic,. as the nation is approaching the 200k death toll figure (and at least 40% to 50%+ of those could've been preventable if decisive action was taken earlier). #TrumpTownHall #TrumpLied200KDied
uspol, activism/volunteering in general
@mcmoots I'd enjoy getting any kind of postcard from a fellow Democrat anywhere. In 2018 I got a letter in an envelope from a Republican lawyer trying to get me to vote for one of their candidates. laughed and threw it in the recycling. Couldn't even be bothered to send me a free postcard, just an envelope with a mail merged sticker and a xeroxed letter inside. No thanks. The Democrat won.
uspol, easy GOTV action inside
Finally signed myself up for Postcards to Voters and I'm working through some of my hoarded promotional postcard stash. It's a small thing that broke through a little bit of my smoky ennui today.
Hope these people in Kentucky like Seattle's local doughnut chain.
@GooseTheCat @RJS @CarolDanvers @QueenRamonda @Pepper @phillyaccent @Spiderman @DrStephenStrange @AgentCarter_SSR I'm glad you found us, no matter when it was! The four of us like to talk to each other, but having new friends for socializing and sharing info is better. I think I got everyone who answered! 🏒 @NatashaRomanoff @SteveRogers @TonyStark
I still remember finding Tony a few days after I joined birdsite, right after Inauguration. I was lost& looking for ways to do something, anything to push back against the injustices of the current administration. He, and the rest of you have taught me a lot over the last few years as well as kept my spirits up along the way.
Thank you all.💜
