A day after shooting, House Democrats erupt in protest

Source: McClatchy DC

A day after a mass shooting in Orlando, Democratic lawmakers erupted on the House floor with loud criticism of House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republican leaders for leaving the nation's gun laws untouched. Some protested by leaving the House floor during a moment of silence honoring the victims.

Democrats yelled "Where's the bill?" and "No leadership!" Monday evening after Ryan held a moment of silence for 49 people killed at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday.

The disruption came after South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the No. 3 Democrat in the House, attempted to ask Ryan on the floor when bills curbing gun use would be considered. Before Clyburn could finish, Ryan ruled his question out of order and directed the House to move to the next vote.

After the disruption, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters Democrats have "had enough" of moments of silence after mass shootings when Congress does not act to tighten gun laws.

On #MTP, Bernie Sanders says he expects to be “meeting with Secretary Clinton on Tuesday evening, I think.”


This is good

Clinton's 1st speech as nominee will be at Planned Parenthood, No center pivot here

At the Planned Parenthood National Conference in DC, Hillary Clinton delivers her first speech after clinching the Democratic nomination. That’s right: Hillary’s first post-victory speech as the first female presidential nominee of a major party in the nation’s history will be to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
Hillary is a candidate who carries with her the stories of women she has met all across the globe. Our successes and struggles, our joy and heartbreak. And she doesn’t see us as a special interest group, but as half the world’s population. Of which she is a part.....
No other candidate in this election has articulated so clearly a vision of a world in which women are given, must be given, every opportunity to participate, fully and on our own terms.

No one else would make Planned Parenthood their first port of call.

This is what a feminist presidential candidate looks like.


Clinton hires Sanders' top student organizer

...Kunoor Ojha is the Clinton campaign’s first major hire from the Sanders campaign, and her move to a role where she will work with the state teams to mobilize young voters represents a significant step in the former secretary of state’s outreach to the Vermont senator’s most ardent backers.
Clinton has thus far been unable to replicate Sanders' success with the group that’s pivotal to Democrats, and the move — coming as her campaign swings toward its general election match-up against Donald Trump — suggests that she is looking directly at bringing Sanders’ backers to her side.

It also means that Clinton’s political effort has entered a new phase of outreach: members of losing campaigns often fold into the party nominee’s efforts, and Ojha — who was a field organizer for Barack Obama in 2008 — is the first public hire.

Hopefully Hillary's campaign's organizational strength will benefit campus outreach by this new hire in a way that actually mobilizes these voters.

"The last 96 hours is a MARVEL" Democrats "can go for the KILL now"

"Opponent damages himself so colossally", "masterful" coordination between WH and campaign, "THIS is when people are tuning in and making up their minds", Trump has "totally undermined his credibility so anything he says about the Clintons" is worthless.

Pretty much wall to wall positive coverage for Hillary and Dems this morning on MSNBC, except for generous interruptions of disastrous coverage for Trump.

Freakiest Friday.

Feels like things are how they are supposed to be. And OBAMA!? As a surrogate? He's a force of nature. I watched him do the thank you note bit on Fallon, re-establishing his value as the guy you just want to see and hear again, reminding everyone of how much fun this is going to be.

"Thank you, Congress, for spending 8 years wishing you could replace me with a Republican, or to put it another way" -pic of Trump appears in corner of screen, as the president finishes in the dope-est, sexiest, most shade-tossing delivery evah- "How do ya like me now?"

I looooooove him and his obvious affection and respect for our candidate. Between Sen Warren, Pres Obama and Uncle Joe, Hillary must be feeling so refreshed and supported and strong.
