President Donald Trump extended his attacks on the four progressive Democratic Congresswomen Tuesday morning, tweeting several sets of attacks against them, culminating with tweets that set the Internet on fire.
“Those Tweets were NOT Racist,” the President said of his racist tweets. “I don’t have a Racist bone in my body!” he added, which drew immediate and intense reaction.
Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap. This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat…..

Take a look at what some are saying on Twitter:
Only racists can look at Trump’s lifetime body of work and conclude that he’s not racist.

Motherfucker, you are racist. Not just your bones. Your crepey orange skin, your piss-on-shredded-wheat hair, your cartilage, marrow, your triglyceride-sludged blood, every fleck of effluvia that you shed is racist as hell. Every nucleotide of you is RACIST.
You. Are. Racist. https://t.co/mcAz2sh3hr

You banned Muslims. You’re blocking Latinos seeking asylum. You said Nazi in C’ville were good people. You wanted to kill black central park 5 after shown to be innocent and you say 4 citizens of color in Congress should go back to where they came from.
You, sir, are a racist. https://t.co/Du3pBxB13q

An Apprentice producer, Bill Pruitt, is on record in Allen Salkin & Aaron Short’s new book saying that in a discussion about whether a black contestant should win The Apprentice, you said, “But will America buy a [n-word]?” I’m sure if you were still mic’ed, there’s a recording. https://t.co/qIcnTaa31L

Yet more evidence that impeachment proceedings would be the wisest political move for Democrats: Trump cannot handle sustained criticism and would lose his fucking mind. It would not be a good look for him at all.

‘Why do we need camo in space’: Trump’s Space Force ridiculed for woodland camouflage uniforms
On Friday, the United States Space Force released an image of their new uniforms on Twitter.
The image shows a Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) for a four-star general in a woodland camouflage pattern, with a matching camo nametape.
However, many people were confused as to why the Space Force would use uniforms designed to blend in on earth.
Here's some of what people were saying:
Sorry for the question but why do we need camo in space?
BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women
The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.
The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.
"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
Dershowitz is running a ‘bizarro defense’ of Trump: Harvard Law colleague says ‘Alan is just completely wacko’
Two of the most famous names associated with Harvard Law School had competing appearances on MSNBC on Friday.
It began when Alan Dershowitz, a professor emeritus, was interviewed MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber about his new role officially representing President Donald Trump during the Senate impeachment trial.
Dershowitz claimed that neither abuse of power nor obstruction of Congress count as "high crimes" under the constitution.
Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
