The SCOTUS has ruled that LGBT workers are protected from job discrimination. 🏳️🌈
(Earlier, the article said that transgender people weren’t part of this decision, but the article has been updated so I’ve redrafted this toot.)
This was a 6-3 vote. It’s a great reminder that one of the most important factors in voting for POTUS is what type of Supreme Court justices they will choose.
There isn't anything that the Trump administration has done that hasn't been a complete failure in their response to every situation and the #COVID19 response has been no different.
They've succeeded in ensuring more people develop it. That's about it.

When you're out driving and find yourself in a crowd of protesters, there’s this thing called the “brake”. When you press it, the car stops. Pretty cool innovation.
Also, driving your car into a crowd is attempted homicide. Protesting is a right in this country.
In at least 19 cases in the past few weeks, witnesses or police say civilian vehicles were driven through crowds of protesters after the death of George Floyd:
Today in #BothPartiesAreNotTheSame
Republicans have been trying to purge voters from voter rolls and limit voting all over the country for years. Why? Because they lose when more people vote. It's voter suppression.
Democrats roll out new tool to combat voter purges:
Well, nobody could have predicted that some right-wing nutjobs carrying automatic "defense" rifles would end up shooting unarmed protesters.
That is, anyone with an IQ above 10 which is probably the sum total of the collective IQs of the New Mexico Very Uncivil Guard.
This is about using weapons against protests -and Trump is directly responsible for provoking this kind of behavior. Looks like police handled them gingerly. If they were black men, they'd all be dead now.
@HopeVanDyne Remember that Republicans are the ones who want to cut Sesame Street out of the budget too, because poor kids watch PBS and learn the alphabet and to count and add and all kinds of neat things if their parents can't afford to send them to preschool.

Primary elections are important. All elections are important.
Here's another reason Republicans are losing their composure all over the country.
They're in serious danger of losing control of the Senate. Democrats are competitive in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Maine, Montana, North Carolina, Kansas, South Carolina, and...Iowa.
Taking back the Senate is absolutely essential. Let's help Dems everywhere, but if you only have a little to give, give where it counts.
