Monday Short Cuts

"Deplorable and crumbs — those two words, they seem to have a resemblance." —Donald Trump

Political Editors · Feb. 5, 2018

For the record: “It is important for the American public to know if the dossier was paid for by another candidate, used in court pleadings, vetted before it was used, vetted after it was used, and whether all relevant facts were shared with the tribunal approving of the FISA application.” —Rep. Trey Gowdy

Self-righteous indignation: “That’s it? Dishonest and misleading memo wrecked the House intel committee, destroyed trust with Intelligence Community, damaged relationship with FISA court, and inexcusably exposed classified investigation of an American citizen. For what? DOJ & FBI must keep doing their jobs.” —James Comey

Non Compos Mentis: “Trump has surrendered his constitutional responsibility as Commander-in-Chief by releasing highly classified and distorted intelligence. By not protecting intelligence sources and methods, he just sent his friend Putin a bouquet.” —Nancy Pelosi

Oh for crying out loud: “I think there is probably a credible case [of obstruction] involving [Devin] Nunes as well.” —Sen. Richard Blumenthal

“I’m with [fill in the blank]”: “There’s a definite yearning for ‘Who’s my next great love?’ And the problem is we’re not really loving anyone we see. So we’re looking for someone we’re not expecting.” —Democrat strategist Patti Solis Doyle

Dumb and dumber: “[Trump] makes it sound like the biggest issue in the United States … is MS-13, a gang nobody that doesn’t watch Fox News has ever heard of.” —MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who thinks a transnational crime syndicate is no big deal

Braying Jackass: “You should not come to my state, saying that you know what is best for my state when you would do everything you could to harm my state.” —Sen. Joe Manchin on Mike Pence’s recent visit

Alpha Jackass: “It just so happens that almost every talk show host is a liberal and that’s because it requires a level of intelligence.” —Jimmy Kimmel

And last… “We got hit with these corporations giving tremendous bonuses to everybody that Nancy Pelosi called crumbs. That was a bad — that could be like [Clinton’s use of the word] deplorable. Does that make sense? Deplorable and crumbs — those two words, they seem to have a resemblance.” —Donald Trump
