It is a big deal that Trump is out. It is a big deal that McConnell can’t turn the Senate into a graveyard anymore.

But be clear. This isn’t where we rest. The real work of ending poverty and racism is still before us.

We have system changing work yet to do.

Tomorrow the kid from the Kayton Homes housing projects gets sworn into the United States Senate. Thank you for trusting me Georgia.

From the Hood to the People’s House. I know that’s right!

I see you, Rev. ✊🏾

It’s National Run for Officr Day! Have you applied to the @arenasummit yet?

I never thought I would be in elected office. When I put my hand on Grandma’s Bible and took my oath for KY, I knew how critical it was that people who look like me and come from where I come from have real representation.

You deserve to lead.

Get ready to run.

Words don’t describe what she means to me.

She is my riding partner, my dance buddy, and my inspiration.

Today, my first born turns 13. She is almost as tall as me now, but when I look at her, I still see this picture. So proud to be her dad.

Happy Birthday, Kaylin.

Quoted @senatemajldr

Today we honor one of our nation’s
great heroes. Dr. King called on America to truly fulfill our founding principles and provide justice and opportunity for all. His work and his example have brought us a long way and they inspire us to keep working.

The person blocking the John Lewis Voting Rights Act.

Quoted @RandPaul

Peace will only come when those of us who have enjoyed the American Dream become aware of those who are missing out. Let's wish Dr. Martin Luther King a happy birthday by uniting the two Americas into one: an America that includes justice for one, and justice for all. #MLKDay

The person who blocked the Emmett Till Antilynching Act.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was considered the most dangerous man in America, all because he wanted racism and poverty to end.

As we remember the Dreamer, may we also remember that we are the dream. Our commitment to ending racism and poverty, our pursuit to make justice mean something, all speak to that dream we still must realize.

Let's do more than quote him. Let's bend the arc. #MLKDay2021

Please try not to misquote him today.

Quoted @NickKnudsenUS

Lindsey Graham actually just blamed Nancy Pelosi for the Capitol Insurrection that he & the GOP ignited.

Lindsey and his friends belong in prison.

Again I say, Lindsey Graham is a mess.

Tell me you’re from Kentucky without telling me you’re from Kentucky.

- It can rain in the morning, be hot during the day, and snow at night
- The first Saturday in May
- Bourbon
- My maw maws side of the room is red, paw paws side of the room is blue...they don’t talk when the game is on
- We all despise Duke
- Our U.S. Senators are the worst

When he would come pick me up in his all black Honda CR-X, I would call him Batman. My dad has always been my superhero.

Today he’s a year older. He has more gray hairs, and he doesn’t dunk like he used to, but to me he will always be Batman.

Happy Birthday, Charles Booker Sr.

Champ, you were right. Thank you for showing us what it looks like to dream bigger than our circumstances. You showed the pride in our hood. You helped pave a way.

Happy Birthday to the Greatest.

Poverty is robbery.

People in communities like mine have been getting robbed long enough.

Quoted @helenprejean

Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent tonight in U.S. v. Dustin Higgs will be remembered long into the future as one of the most thorough, resounding indictments of this administration’s reckless, immoral, illegal effort to execute as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.

The death penalty must end.

Rand Paul is the example of how dangerous it is to have people in positions of authority who speak loudly but have no clue what they’re talking about. He thinks he is profound for telling folks don’t wear masks, but hear me...

He doesn’t know what the hell he is taking about.

 11,916  471  1,966

Quoted @mmpadellan

Rand Paul says if you get vaccinated you don't have to wear a mask.

Rand Paul is WRONG.
Rand Paul is not a real doctor.
Rand Paul IS a real asshole.

Don't be like Rand Paul.

Don’t be like Rand Paul.
(especially if you want to keep your job)

We shocked the world. We inspired hope to not only beat Mitch, but transform our future.

Our work isn’t done.

That’s why I’m launching @hoodtotheholler! It’s time to tell a new story...a new Southern Strategy. It’s OUR time. Join us.
