Thursday Short Cuts

Hillary Clinton on her supporters’ vitriol: “If some of that comes across as a little uncivil, well, children’s lives are at stake.”

For the record: “Trump’s approval among Republicans is at a near-record 87%, comparable to the levels of support for George W. Bush in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. Think about that: The Left’s attacks on Trump have had the same rallying effect for GOP voters as the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.” —Marc A. Thiessen

Non Compos Mentis: “A reminder this Fourth of July: it was eight immigrants who signed the Declaration of Independence. Happy Independence Day.” —Sen. Kamala Harris (D-2020) (Yes, LEGAL immigrants…)

Braying Jenny: “To every country on the 4th of July. We’re sorry about our president. He doesn’t reflect all of our views — and we hope you know that the majority of us are ashamed. We will rally each other and come back to the world one step at a time.” —Chelsea Handler

That’s a bleak future: “I have three kids. Two of them are daughters. One just graduated college, one … is in college, and they were both texting me about their excitement over [socialist] Alexandria [Ocasio-Cortez] because she really — she represents the future of our party.” —DNC Chairman Tom Perez

Missing the forest for the trees: “On abortion, as well as same-sex marriage, a conservative court on social issues would lag behind the American people, a majority of whom hold a non-absolutist position on abortion rights, even if many wouldn’t object to some reasonable restrictions, according to the Pew Research Center. … What new justice would want to be that man or woman, who forevermore would be credited with upending settled law and causing massive societal upheaval?” —Kathleen Parker (For Rule of Law judicial stalwarts, this isn’t a popularity contest. Their only prerogative is about defending the Constitution.)

Braying Jenny: “Give me a break! What is more uncivil and cruel than taking children away? It should be met with resolve and strength. And if some of that comes across as a little uncivil, well, children’s lives are at stake; their futures are at stake.” —Hillary Clinton condoning the Left’s vitriol

And last… “Patriotism in America means loving limited government. It is that simple. You love that America has a constitutionally limited government, or you do not love America.” —Jesse Kelly
