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. 

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
