I am beyond saddened to learn that two of the innocent victims of the shooting in Jersey City are from my hometown Brooklyn—Moshe Deutsch and Leah Minda Ferencz. May their memory be a blessing.

I’m sure President Trump is sitting there fuming again that he wasn’t named the Time Person of the Year. So I hope this message reaches him loud and clear: Greta and the students fighting so hard for action on the climate crisis are an inspiration to the whole world. https://t.co/p8Sv3vDiJt

Lawrence VanDyke has a history of bigoted writings about LGBTQ Americans, radical views on even the most commonsense gun safety legislation, a proven hostility towards reproductive rights. This is someone that Pres. Trump and Senate Republicans want to be a circuit court judge?! https://t.co/JyPcgwo5eu

Certain Republican Senators have repeated the fiction invented by Putin’s intelligence services that Ukraine—not Putin—interfered in the 2016 election. And Attorney General Barr has signed himself up to be a charter member of the conspiracy caucus. https://t.co/WmB5unMX5u

I want to express deep sympathy for the families of the victims of the shooting yesterday in Jersey City, which left one fallen police officer, Detective Seals, as well as several bystander victims. My heart goes out to their loved ones. https://t.co/zPYbSboC7g
