Hey US media folks, here, I would argue immodestly, is how you interview a Trump supporter on Trump's lies:

Tennessee reported 100 Covid deaths today. Its positive-test rate is 8.5%. And this is *after* its big Delta surge faded. Why? Because a year after vaccines became available, Marsha Blackburn's state still has less than half its population vaccinated.

I talked with 17 Democratic senators today about their views on structural changes to the Supreme Court in light of the oral arguments yesterday, and there is a clear, growing appetite to seriously consider fundamentally altering the makeup of the Court.

After a year of "review" Leander ISD in Texas has now banned 11 books from its optional book club reading lists -- and will be proceeding to ensure no student has access to them in classroom libraries. A profound shame. #FReadom

But just today I heard an ad for Facebook on the NYTimes daily podcast that said Facebook “leads the industry in stopping bad actors on line.” Was that, gasp, not true?

NEW: Facebook has sold ads promoting anti-vaccine messages, comparing the US government's response to Covid-19 to Nazi Germany, casting doubt on the result of the 2020 election, and even pushing political violence. @AC360

I was curious how many sitting Supreme Court justices had both been nominated by presidents who'd lost the popular vote and confirmed by senators representing less than half of the country. So I looked into it.

Dr. Fauci tells @chrislhayes that Lara Logan's comparison of him to Nazi doctor is "disgusting." "What I find striking is how she gets no discipline whatsoever from the Fox network. How they can let her say that with no comment & no disciplinary action?"

Great to discuss how rapid tests may help with winter surge, what we know about omicron and what else the Biden winter plan could have included with @mehdirhasan. A brighter future for rapid Covid tests? via @msnbc

Painful to watch. And yes I know all the caveats and I have reported on all the improvements, but overall it’s difficult to come to any other conclusion than that the Biden/Harris administration has been a major, major disappointment on immigration.

Brilliant thread from @OmarBaddar on @JamaalBowmanNY. It ridiculous & so destructive for folks who think they’re pure to try to punish a wonderful progressive Congressman. This is not the way to build a mov’t. Look at his record. We need Jamaal in Congress.

.@JamaalBowmanNY is among a fairly small group of principled people in Congress who are fighting for meaningful progress on both foreign & domestic policy. This includes relentlessly speaking up for Palestinian human rights in a context where that’s frequently punished.

“Republicans love to bring parents into conversation when it comes to school boards, when it comes to vaccine mandates, to masks,” says @cameron_kasky. Yet when it's a school shooting where a parent’s gun was used? “Suddenly this isn’t about holding the parents accountable.”

The ‘perpetually disappointed’ Sen. Susan Collins now says she supports codifying Roe v. Wade abortion protections into law. Would we even be in this position without her vote for Brett Kavanaugh?
