Donald Trump mocks Ron ‘DeSanctimonious’ DeSantis in election eve circus act

In a preview of the bruising battle to come, the disgraced ex-president unveiled his new (actually not unfunny) nickname for the pugnacious Florida governor and one-time ally during a campaign stop in — why not — Pennsylvania. “We’re winning big, big, big in the Republican Party for the nomination like nobody has ever seen before,” the serial grifter said. “There it is, Trump at 71%, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10%,” citing fake poll numbers backed up by zero data.

Texas Republicans rake in millions from far-right Christian megadonors pushing private school vouchers

Texas Republicans bankrolled by Christian conservative donors are hoping to ride a wave of trumped up, irrational parental anger over the super dangerous teaching of very scary topics like race (eegadz!) and sexuality (for shame!) in schools to achieve what has long been an unattainable goal: the decimation of public education and state funding for private, religious indoctrination under the guise of “schooling.”

Twitter is already trying to rehire workers Elon Musk fired days ago
The social media giant, which laid off roughly half the company on Friday following Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition, is reaching out to dozens of employees it just fired and asking them to return.

Others were let go before management realized that their work and experience may be necessary to build the new features their fearless new leader envisions.

Today’s Action: Phone bank for abortion rights with Protect Kentucky Access!

In all 50 states, crucial races up and down the ballot TOMORROW could turn the tide in the increasingly urgent fight for abortion rights. The Supreme Court’s disastrous overturning of Roe v. Wade this summer placed the lives of pregnant women throughout the country at even greater risk, with those in red states subjected to extremist trigger laws designed to force them to carry unwanted and dangerous pregnancies to term without exception.

For us here at OD Action, that threat is personal — Kentucky, a state deeply at risk for losing abortion care, is our home base. It’s a state where voters are historically disenfranchised and exploited, where communities suffer without proper support from negligent legislators, and conservative politicians who are completely unrepresentative of their constituents — we’re looking at you, Mitch McConnell — call the shots.

Protect Kentucky Access is hosting two final virtual phone-banking sessions to fight for reproductive healthcare and against a far-right amendment to ban abortion altogether in the state. Just an hour out of your day today could mean reaching the voters necessary to secure reproductive healthcare for our commonwealth — national allyship could mean a world of difference for Kentuckians in this fight.

Find an hour you’re free today or tomorrow and commit to calling voters with Protect Kentucky Access from the comfort of your own home! You just need a computer, a phone, and a willingness to do good work.


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to charge Trump with perjury for lying under oath in Big Lie lawsuit, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
