President Trump has been targeting women of the Democratic Party on Twitter — through his own account and the official White House one.

Why it matters: Trump's attacks, though not uncommon, come as both Democrats and Republicans reflect on the state of civility in public discourse.

To the surprise of many, the official White House Twitter, usually an account that tweets uncontroversial photos and videos from presidential events, went after Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris and accused them of supporting the violent gang MS-13.

  • Reality check: While Warren has called for the end of ICE as part of the left-wing movement to abolish the body, Harris has not.

Trump has singled out Rep. Maxine Waters — who was criticized by Republicans and Democrats for directing supporters to confront Trump administration officials in public — several times, including this morning.

  • He pairs Waters with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, but Pelosi is one of the Democrats who was critical of Waters' rhetoric.

The Justice Department and 11 states Tuesday filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, accusing the company of using anticompetitive tactics to illegally monopolize the online search and search advertising markets.

Why it matters: The long-awaited suit is Washington's first major blow against the tech giants that many on both the right and left argue have grown too large and powerful. Still, this is just step one in what could be a lengthy and messy court battle.
