Donald Trump Jr. Tried to weigh in. Your suggestions were better.

After Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced she got a new puppy, we asked you to suggest some creative dog names for her. And wow, did you respond.

We also heard from Donald Trump Jr., who tried to troll us on Twitter, but your suggestions were far better.

Here are just some of our favorites: 

  • Thurgood. No one fights for justice/equality quite like Elizabeth Warren & no one fought for justice/equality quite like Thurgood Marshall.”
  • “Rebel”
  • “Tuffy because she needs someone tough by her side.”
  • “Raza, it means hope. We need hope and Elizabeth Warren is, for me, the mother of hope. 😉”
  • “‘Spero,’ which is Latin for ‘hope’ and also an awesome doggo name!”
  • “Consumer watch dog”
  • “Dodd Frank”
  • “Anthony Scarapoochie” 
  • “Dogged Pursuit”
  • “Endeavor”
  • “Hope” 

“Percy,” short for persistence, and “Justice” were two of the most frequent suggestions. 

Still no word from the senator on what she’s decided to name her pup, but let’s hope she takes some of your suggestions into consideration. 

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
