Friday Short Cuts

Insight: “You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.” —Dr. Adrian Rogers (1931-2005)

Another jab at the Obama legacy: “Unlike when I became president, a lot of things are coming apart around the world now.” —Bill Clinton

Rare moment of truth: “You are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter. Tell the truth!” —Bill Clinton’s response to a Black Lives Matter demonstrator

Case in point: “It’s important to talk about the myth of black on black crime. It’s just that — a myth.” —Black Lives Matter organizer Aaron Goggans

Vast right-wing conspiracy: “I know [Republicans] live in that world of fantasy and hope because they’ve got a mess on their hands on the Republican side. … There is not even the remotest chance that [I’m going to be arrested]. But look, they’ve been after me, as I say, for 25 years. They have said things about me repeatedly that have been proven to be not only false but kind of ridiculous.” —Hillary Clinton

Don’t keep or bear arms: “You take the Fort Hood incident … the one where I was the commander of Third Corps. Those police responded within eight minutes and that guy was dead. So, that’s pretty quick and a lot of people died in the process of that, but that was a very fast, evolving event and I am not convinced, from what I know, that carrying privately owned weapons would’ve stopped that individual.” —Army chief of staff Gen. Mark Milley

Late-night humor: “Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have scheduled a debate for next Thursday in Brooklyn. Which is about as close as Bernie Sanders can get to Wall Street without spontaneously combusting.” —Seth Meyers
