    I am honored by @HouseDemocrats support of me to serve as the Assistant Democratic Leader in the 118th Congress.

    It is important that the South, rural communities, and those left out of economic progress of previous generations have a seat at the leadership table next Congress.

    BIG: After winning one of the DPCC co-chair slots, @LaurenUnderwood becomes the first Black woman elected to House Democratic leadership since Shirley Chisholm in 1977.

    This is awesome: Macron will gift Biden a Vinyl and CD of the original soundtrack of Claude LELOUCH’s film “Un Homme et une Femme,” which is the film that Biden and Jill Biden went to see on their first date.

    If you’re one of the tens of millions of hardworking people wondering why your $10K or $20K student loan forgiveness is on hold, it’s b/c a GOP plaintiff who had $48K in PPP loans forgiven is suing b/c he’s only got only $10K—not $20K—in student loan forgiveness.🤦🏽‍♂️

    He is very much on point about this.

    I’m heading to the Senate floor to continue unmasking the Scheme to capture and control our Supreme Court — or as I call it, “The Court That Dark Money Built.”

    Tonight’s focus: the dire need for a binding code of conduct for SCOTUS justices and way more disclosure at the Court.

    Georgia’s Republican candidate for the United States Senate has not taken a question from the general press in more than a month. It’s a stark contrast to the incumbent Democrat that holds media availabilities nearly every day on the campaign trail. #gapol #gasen

    Newsmax host on Hakeem Jeffries’ election as Democratic leader: “I’m not surprised because you knew it wasn’t going to be a white guy, I think we all knew that. But it’s a very extreme choice”

    Watching the same on @CNN and not one word about VPs visit last Nov or the successful talks yesterday. Such a big omission. Disgusted of press erasure of our VP as usual.

    Brevard Sheriff Wayne Ivey held press conference with new right-wing school board chair to call for more severe discipline of students, saying they need to fear “like in the old days” that they’re going to “have the cheeks of their ass torn off for not doing right in class.”

    Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) tweeted at 7:00 PM on Wed, Nov 30, 2022:
    The Florida sheriff also says this new severe discipline policy will somehow make Brevard schools safer from active shooters, intruders and “clowns“ who disrupt classrooms. He also blames the shooting in Parkland on not having severe enough punishment protocols. #flapol
