When Golden Girl #BettyWhite is trending on Twitter, it has the same effect as when #RBG is trending: "Oh no!" is the universal response. But it's okay, it's Betty's birthday! She's 98:

Whatever blackmail operation Trump & Co. were running in Ukraine is nothing compared to the depraved games they've been playing in Puerto Rico for more than 2 years, largely motivated by Trump's racism & personal pique at politicians who stood up to himhttps://t.co/o4MimgWfvw

NEW: We got our hands on private memos circulating among investors about what an @ewarren administration would mean for Wall Street.
Turns out, concerns about what might happen to big business and the rich run deeper than we thought.

Kamala Harris just convinced Senate Republicans to put Trump judicial appointments on hold pending the impeachment trial and that’s one of the most consequential things Democrats have won from Republicans in a while.

NEW: White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, Trump personal lawyer Jay Sekulow, former Clinton investigators Ken Starr and Robert Ray, as well as Alan Dershowitz, are expected to be among team that will defend Pres. Trump in the US Senate impeachment trial. https://t.co/x4GyNljvU0

Dershowitz tells me he'll be speaking on the Senate floor to argue against Trump's impeachment next week. Says POTUS asked him to do it. Says he will argue the case that abuse of power and obstruction of congress are not "high crimes and misdemeanors" that deserve impeachment.

Joe Biden says he wants Section 230 "revoked, immediately." He's the only presidential candidate to call for this kind of dramatic change to the law.https://t.co/vRdzRncdml

Wonder what's planned to protect NYC from the next Hurricane Sandy? This option--a huge sea gate--has been talked about since the storm's massive floods in 2012.
A bold solution, or a boondoggle that could make things worse?

"After analyzing all the evidence and sitting back and really understanding what's going on, I don't think Vice President Biden did anything wrong. I think he was protecting our country and getting rid of, probably, a crooked attorney general." -Lev Parnas pic.twitter.com/T4R9saUFap

Lets see: Speaker Pelosi sends in Schiff and Nadler and President Trump sends in Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr. That should tell you everything you need to know about the quality of the two cases.

Lev Parnas told The Daily Beast that after he was arrested, he was disappointed with the silence from Rudy Giuliani, Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing. That silence, he said, left him feeling betrayed.
"I felt like my family left me," he said.https://t.co/mR8iqIG22v

Speaking as a litigator, adding senior lawyers to a trial team on the eve of a trial isn’t likely to improve the quality of representation at the trial.

Crying watching this video and thinking about a whole generation of young women and girls who are being told “I’m running for president because that’s what girls do.” @ewarren, thank you for inspiring so many of us! Needed this and need you.

The Edmonton memorial for the victims of #Flight752 was so moving, so dignified, so inspiring, I wish I could post the whole thing.
But here's a bit of the tribute of these incredible human beings who should still be with us today. #cdnpoli
