Tuesday Short Cuts

“[Trump] won fair and square. He won 307 electoral votes. He is our president. Respect the office of the presidency.” —Ken Langone

Upright: “We want to go through the process. One thing I will say is that as I understand it, Judge Kavanaugh spent quite a bit of time with Senator Feinstein and it wasn’t even brought up at that meeting and she had this information. So you would have thought certainly that she would have brought it up at the meeting — not wait til everything’s finished and then have to start a process all over again.” —Donald Trump

A can of worms: “The problem is that if Kavanaugh is confirmed, a (likely vocal) segment of the public will forever accuse him of committing sexual assault and getting away with it — and if Ford is telling the truth, he did. If Kavanaugh is rejected, it means an accuser can come forward after 36 years, with no evidence beyond her own account, and not able to remember key details, and ruin the life and career of a man.” —Jim Geraghty

Braying Jackass: “If the #MeToo movement has taught us anything, it is that we must respect and listen to survivors of sexual assault, regardless of the age of those involved or when the alleged attack took place.” —Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) (Juanita Broaddrick replied, “Well, Dick, do I have a story for you. Once upon a time Bill Clinton raped me.”)

Alpha Jackass: “Despite losing in the courts and in the court of public opinion, these forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress [LGBTQ rights advocates] all have made. This time they — not you — have an ally in the White House. They’re a small percentage of the American people, virulent people. Some of them the dregs of society.” —Joe Biden

And last… “The establishment is shocked that Donald Trump won — but he won. He won fair and square. I don’t — this Mueller investigation, come on, let’s end it. Let’s decide. Come out and say what you got. There’s a notion here this guy should not be president of the United States. I beg your pardon? He won fair and square. He won 307 electoral votes. He is our president. Respect the office of the presidency. … I would hope he would do things different than he does, but … give the guy credit.” —Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone
