Well, this is normal:
Furious Democrats are considering total war — profound changes to two branches of government, and even adding stars to the flag — if Republicans jam through a Supreme Court nominee, then lose control of the Senate. https://t.co/H7RV446zdW

So, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump do exactly what the Consitution says to do, and that’s their response?
Also, the only condition is if the GOP engages the Constitutional process for confirming a new justice?
They're just going to not try to radically change everything to their favor if they get their way? https://t.co/jAgK4QAyva

And what do you call what they’ve been doing?
Considering? I’m old enough to remember when they tried to portray Kavanaugh as a gang rapist and our elected President as a Russian plant. I think they already went there. https://t.co/wWQwf0AgzL

Just don’t be insane, and yet:
So all democrats have to do is not be insane…impossible. It the constitution stupid.

Some of that which is described as "total war", like adding stars to the flag, is stuff we should do anyway!https://t.co/TSRam9w5Tb

But other libs aren’t happy with how Axios is framing it:
Terrible terminology guys, come on ? https://t.co/PnRza0GGgX

Ugh, axios sucking. As per usual. ‘Total war’ is absurd framing. I mean—journalists might want to use ‘war’ for war and lean in on accuracy. But White House reporters are failing you constantly, folks. Can only point it out for ya. https://t.co/OFU4iQE80R

History books will not be kind to journalists who misconstrued basic efforts to protect our democracy. https://t.co/CRDsULG55Q

"even adding stars to the flag" ??? grow up, Axios. https://t.co/726ikIRHgU

Duly elected legislators who represent a majority of the population consider meeting constitutional hardball with constitutional hardball. Film at 11! https://t.co/9Aj7OeZwcH

By “adding stars to the flag” you mean giving American citizens a voice in their government?
That’s not total war.
That’s democracy. https://t.co/ox8ovWCmbj
