Wednesday Short Cuts

Upright: “Appropriately enough, the new virtue signals of tantrum-throwing young leftists stirring up trouble are safety pins — to show ‘solidarity’ with groups supposedly endangered by Donald Trump. Safety pins are also handy — for holding up the government-manufactured diapers in which too many overgrown dependents are swaddled.” —Michelle Malkin

For the record, part I: “Here’s some free advice for all the liberals insisting that Trump was elected by racists: The more you say that, the more you help Trump.” —Jonah Goldberg

For the record, part II: “The day after the election, you responded by literally sitting on the ground and crying. … This is not what adulthood looks like.” —recent Cornell grad Megan Tubb in a letter to Cornell students

Race bait: “[W]e are fighting the last big major battle of the Civil War. There’s only been two times in the history of America where, upon the election of a president, the people en masse took to the streets. One was Abraham Lincoln, and the other was Donald Trump. And for obviously, you know, 180-degree different reasons, but both based on race.” —director Rob Reiner

Non Compos Mentis: “If you are concerned about the Supreme Court, please consider going to this website and signing a petition asking President Obama to ‘appoint’ Merrick Garland. … [H]e has the power to do this since Congress has refused to vote, and apparently that can be considered a waiver of its rights to advise and consent.” —Barbra Streisand

Just a little over-the-top, dramatic and emotional: “I watched our incredible first lady, Michelle Obama, talk in New Hampshire about how hurt she felt [hearing Trump demean women]. She talked about how women are often afraid to say anything because we’re worried that we will appear weak — that we’ll be told we’re being over-the-top, dramatic, emotional. But we’re not. We’re fighting for our lives.” —Lady Gaga

And last… “An anti-Trump protest was thrown into total confusion and bewilderment when somebody shouted, ‘Let’s meet here again tomorrow after work!’” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
