Thursday Short Cuts

Insight: “You want to know what fascism is like? It is like your New Deal!” —Benito Mussolini (1883-1945)

Upright: “There is one easy way … to get a real sense of whether General Michael Flynn, the now-former national-security adviser, is a lying rogue who deceived every Trump administration official in sight, or the victim of an elaborate ‘deep state’ scam whose real objective is to destroy not merely Flynn but the Trump presidency. Let’s go to the audio tape.” —Andrew McCarthy

Braying Jackass: “In thinking of the larger problem, Trump doesn’t have time to help Americans because of all the scandals that are taking place, which is within just a three-week period. … This is not just about President Trump. This is about our Republican colleagues and the separation of powers and holding this president accountable for the lies that have been taking place in the White House that have made America less safe. That is what this is about.” —Rep. Joseph Crowley

Out on a limb: “This is bigger than Watergate.” —Democrat National Committee

The BIG Lie: “Watergate is the biggest political scandal of my lifetime, until maybe now. It was the closest we came to a debilitating Constitutional crisis, until maybe now. … And we may look back and see, in the end, that it is at least as big as Watergate. It may become the measure by which all future scandals are judged. It has all the necessary ingredients, and that is chilling.” —Dan Rather

A blind squirrel finds a nut: “There is an absolutely frenzied and concerted attempt to delegitimize, sabotage and destroy the Trump presidency before it’s even started. I think that is un-American. I don’t think it’s a patriotic thing that they’re doing. I think it’s nakedly partisan.” —Piers Morgan

And last… “Obama learned of IRS/VA scandals, AP spying, and HRC’s server from the news: COOL. Trump anything: WHAT DID TRUMP KNOW & WHEN DID HE KNOW IT.” —Twitter satirist @hale_razor
