Friday Short Cuts

Sanders says, “Our people should not have to beg for their right to health care.” Apparently he’s confusing America with Venezuela.

For the record: “Barack Obama, when he was president … found out about [Russian election interference] in August. Now, the election was in November. That’s a lot of time. He did nothing about it. Why did he do nothing about it? … I think what happened is he thought Hillary Clinton was going to win the election and he said, let’s not do anything about it. Had he thought the other way, he would have done something about it.” —Donald Trump

Dreaming big: “I actually think we’re going to win the Senate back and the House. There’s no one in Washington who agrees with me. But if [Republicans] pass this [health care] bill, I have no doubts about my prediction whatsoever. It’ll be a wave.” —Howard Dean

The BIG Lie: “It’s not really a health care bill. What’s driving it are two things: Number one is getting a win, saying we fulfilled our promise. And number two, you know, setting a stage for massive tax cuts for the rich.” —MSNBC’s Charlie Sykes

Braying Jackass: “The United States is the wealthiest country in the history of the world. Our people should not have to beg for their right to health care.” —Bernie Sanders (“The reality is that those who rely on socialized medical systems have to beg for their healthcare whenever they need it.” —Tom Rogan in the Washington Examiner)

Non Compos Mentis: “As far as I know, I am not a gay man. Maybe I’ll have an awakening later in my life, which I’m sure will be wonderful and I’ll get to explore that part of the garden, but right now I’m secluded to my area, which is wonderful as well. … I am a gay man right now just without the physical act — that’s all.” —actor Andrew Garfield, who just brilliantly played Medal of Honor hero Desmond Doss in “Hacksaw Ridge”

And last… “If President Trump cured cancer tomorrow, the American press corps would assail him for putting a bunch of scientists on the unemployment line. He cannot win when a press corps has decided it would rather lie to smear him than tell a truth that might make him look good. The whole of it undermines American democracy and the very freedoms the press depends on to push their lies.” —Erick Erickson
