Thursday Short Cuts

The BIG lie: “I know there is a lot of smoke and there is no fire.” —Hillary Clinton on the latest revelations of pay-to-play at the Clinton Foundation/State Department

Friendly fire, part I: “[I]f Hillary Clinton is inaugurated in January, there will be no more vital work for her than being president. The continued existence of the Clinton Foundation will be a distraction that America cannot afford.” —USA Today editorial board

Friendly fire, part II: “After promising to avoid any conflict or appearance of conflict, Ms. Clinton left ample room for perceptions that access to the Clinton Foundation could enable access to the government. … Should Ms. Clinton win, all of that work and all of the foundation’s assets should be spun off to an organization with no ties to the first family.” —Washington Post editorial board

Friendly fire, part III: “The Clintons should move now to end donations to the foundation, and make plans to shut it down in November. Even if they’ve done nothing illegal, the foundation will always look too much like a conflict of interest for comfort.” —Boston Globe editorial board

For the record: “Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future. She’s going to do nothing for African-Americans, she’s going to do nothing for the Hispanics. She’s only going to take care of herself, her husband, her consultants, her donors. These are the people she cares about.” —Donald Trump

Non Compos Mentis: “No, I’m not responsible for any partisanship. I’ve tried my best to get things done, but it’s hard when you spend all your time trying to overcome filibusters.” —Harry Reid

And last… “Four years ago, Obama and Clinton were making Romney look like a warmonger when he warned about Putin’s ambitions. Today they are trying to make Trump look naive for thinking he can work with Russia.” —Gary Bauer
