Thursday Short Cuts

On this week's terror attack in Iran, Trump astutely says: "States that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote."

Observations: “If Britain, the rest of Europe and the United States won’t take more aggressive action against people who are becoming increasingly aggressive toward us, we can expect more [terrorist] attacks. Will it take the death of a high-profile politician’s loved one to spur governments to take the necessary steps to fight this war? … Let’s hope not.” —Cal Thomas

Good question: “In demonstrating his addiction to social media and cable news, it’s become increasingly clear that Trump is just like us. Yes, we need more from our president — more professionality, decorum, dignity. But do we deserve more? Do we even want more?” —Gracy Olmstead

Non Compos Mentis: “President Trump is violating my constitutional rights by blocking me on Twitter.” —songwriter Holly O'Reilly, who adds, “This is what dictators and fascists do” (Can you imagine how Winston Churchill must have felt when Adolf Hitler blocked him on Twitter?)

Braying Jenny: “We are at a time in this country where we need problem solvers out there who are committed. Who believe in this country. Who believe in the values and the diversity. Believe in, you know, the value of immigrants and believe that … global warming is real.” —Michelle Obama

Braying Jackass: “In periods like this, people looking for control and certainty — it’s inevitable. But it is important to remember that the world has gone through similar moments. … Our history also shows there is a better way.” —Barack Obama

The BIG Lie: “I think [if] you compare the two that Watergate pales, really, in my view, compared to what we’re confronting now.” —James Clapper

And last… “We grieve and pray for the innocent victims of the terrorist attacks in Iran, and for the Iranian people, who are going through such challenging times. We underscore that states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote.” —Donald Trump
