"These people say they're patriots. But they're not. It's not patriotic to want your leaders to fail. I for one wish Trump had succeeded in preventing 1000s of people dying daily from Covid. But he didn't. So now...I hope Biden succeeds."

Great question from a reporter to @PressSec - does President Biden agree with the outgoing GOP Secretary of State's description of China's treatment of the Uighurs as "genocide."

More substantive questions like this, please.

There were a bunch of writers and commentators who spoke plain truths and who helped me through the Trump era and helped me stay sane, but the two that often come to mind are @AdamSerwer and @jbouie

Appointing radicals like Malley gives the lie to all of President Biden and Tony Blinken’s rhetoric of unity.

Quoted @baparkr

"A Yang administration will push back against the BDS movement...Not only is BDS rooted in antisemitic thought and history, hearkening back to fascist boycotts of Jewish businesses, it’s also a direct shot at New York City’s economy," writes @AndrewYang

The BDS movement has struggled recently and is hardly a major presence in NY politics.

So what do remarks like these do?

They reinforce a political climate in which any support for Palestinian rights is deemed beyond the pale. It's a strategy of quashing dissent.
