Last Week This Morning: A terrifying act of arson

By Emily Kirkland

A terrifying act of arson. Someone set fire to the Phoenix headquarters of the Democratic Party early Friday morning. The offices of the Maricopa County Democrats were completely destroyed.  

What is happening in Portland? The use of federal agents as a de facto internal security force is horrifying. And it has its roots in our systems of criminalization and deportation.

What is happening in DC? GOP Senators cannot get their act together, and as a result, the Senate still hasn’t passed a much-needed coronavirus relief bill, months after the House passed the HEROES Act. 

Following the money. We track down the GOP-linked and corporate cash flooding into Democratic legislative primaries.

Finally. The Confederate monument at the state capitol is gone. 

“¡Basta Trump!” Mi Familia Vota says: enough.
