The @dcexaminer misunderstands how face masks work. Layers are different than number of masks. A single KN95 mask, for example, has five layers. https://t.co/qp2Ofzn7wm

Rep. Michael McCaul says "Trump has a responsibility" to tell his supporters "to stand down" after new threat https://t.co/H0X0rWiD0J

Republican leaders can reduce the risk of further political violence by saying one simple, truthful sentence: The election was not stolen. Their refusal to do so is why National Guard troops still patrol the Capitol and why the House altered its schedule for tomorrow. https://t.co/Nb3ciUr7g3

Quoted @WhiteHouse

A new poll from Morning Consult shows that 77% of Americans support the American Rescue Plan — including 59% of Republican voters. That’s unity.

This is so ... popular. https://t.co/ctKZO0XJ2m

“Self-censorship is the norm, not the exception,” a student at one of the country's top law schools wrote. “I self-censor even when talking to some of my best friends for fear of word getting around.” Thanks to @DeseretNews for the invitation: https://t.co/HUbJJzv31f

I disagree. People are more willing to express their views now than before. The former President greenlighted some folks to be outwardly racist & sexist. I’ve seen more Confederate flags & Nazi symbols the last 4 years then in my entire life. One law student’s story is not data. https://t.co/6ZQIulKKSK

I walked around the U.S. Capitol complex today and took this picture of the razor wire atop the 7 foot fence. Security remains intense as officials say they continue to monitor possible attacks on the Capitol. https://t.co/ttyMj6HKR7

Republican elected officials can reduce the risk of further political violence by saying one simple, truthful sentence: The election was not stolen. But instead of telling the truth, @GOP is trying to restrict voting on weekends. This is malicious behavior. https://t.co/Y4g1ul3Bap

Quoted @marceelias

Why is the GOP is targeting weekend voting? "Individuals identifying as white were the least likely to cast their vote on weekends (8.6%), compared to those identifying as Asian (13.1%), African-American (11.8%), and Hispanic (11.4%)." @Center4NewData https://t.co/rhmI5QKdHP

The @GOP can’t win on their ideas. That’s why they are trying to suppress the vote. The policies advocated by the GOP, such as opposing stimulus checks, are broadly unpopular. And no one cares about how the free market views Potato Head. https://t.co/MF1Zba7lnR

NEW Morning Consult/Politico Poll 77% support for the American Rescue Plan (only 18% oppose) 59% of Republicans support the American Rescue Plan (only 33% oppose) #UNITY REMINDER: 100% of Republicans in Congress voted no. https://t.co/YuonRZncOH

Democrats are focused on shots in arms, money in pockets, kids in schools and people in jobs. We are working hard to pass the American Rescue Plan. @GOP is focused on private sector decisions regarding Potato Head, Dr. Seuss, Amazon and the Muppets. https://t.co/OWgtrY9jyC

For the third time in a matter of several days, Marjorie Taylor Greene forcing vote on a motion to adjourn the House, a protest vote that bogs down the floor and forces members to return to the chamber to vote

Dear @RepMTG: You are so mighty! You must feel powerful making random motions to adjourn that waste taxpayer funds and money. Did you know you can also make random motions to adjourn when you are in House Committee hearings? Oh wait... https://t.co/bxDCK04JZC

Scoop: FBI & DHS warn of increased chatter among extremists, including members of Three Percenters, discussing possible plots against Capitol on March 4, when conspiracy theorists believe Trump will retake office, sources familiar with the matter tell myself & @WhitneyWReports

Republican leaders can reduce the risk of further political violence by saying one simple, truthful sentence: The election was not stolen. Their refusal to do so is why National Guard troops in body armor still patrol the Capitol. #wednesdaythought https://t.co/WacbOvWq3W

Today, #SCOTUS will hear oral arguments in Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee, a case challenging two Arizona policies as racially discriminatory under Section 2 of the #VotingRightsAct of 1965. https://t.co/NqtNDldzSz

There are currently 253 bills introduced in 43 states designed to suppress voting. In #BrnovichvDNC, #SCOTUS should affirm there’s no place for racism in our elections. #ProtectOurVote https://t.co/k7O8XkwVr5

Quoted @ezraklein

It says a lot about the modern GOP that Biden and the Democrats are about to pass a $1.9 trillion bill with dozens of longtime liberal priorities and what's really generating the heat on the right is some nonsense about Dr. Seuss. https://t.co/gE7ugPyTrN

Do ordinary Americans care about the 6 relatively unknown Dr. Seuss books that the publisher is no longer going to publish? No. That’s why Dems are focused on stimulus checks. And since one of the Dr. Seuss books made fun of my ethnicity, I’m glad the free market cancelled it. https://t.co/ucinfzaCyr

Quoted @RepGregSteube

Mr. Potato Head is gender neutral, Dr. Seuss is cancelled, and Amazon is banning books. This is what a Democrat majority looks like.

Dear @RepGregSteube: It’s called the free market. In fact, if government forces publishers to publish books they don’t want to, that would be compelled speech in violation of the 1st Amendment. Also, want to work with me on things people care about, like jobs and healthcare? https://t.co/7bTvmf2nd6

Three weeks ago, I announced we would have enough vaccine supply for all Americans by the end of July. Now, with our efforts to ramp up production, we will have enough vaccines for every American by the end of May.

This is so ... competent. https://t.co/1iisFwci1D

Former QAnon member tells @CNN, the best way to help a friend or family member in Q: "Try to have some compassion or empathy, just because people in these groups -- they're terrified."

NO. If you attack the Capitol then I have zero compassion for you. If you think I drink the blood of babies then I have zero empathy for you. If you believe the former President will be inaugurated on March 4 then I will not try to understand you. https://t.co/NX2lOzcfN2
