Thursday Short Cuts

"Pundits and politicians should keep their mouths closed and their minds open. Let the investigators do their job." —Ari Fleischer

Political Editors · Oct. 25, 2018

For the record: “Some insensitive bureaucrat argued that federal policy on gender should be based on ‘a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.’ Oh, the horror of it all. But wait. Don’t liberals believe policy should be grounded in science? The answer is yes — but not when it conflicts with their cultural dogmas on ‘gender fluidity.’ … As usual, any step backward from the Obama administration’s radical march into a funhouse with 51 boutique gender identities is seen as a return to the horrific world of … five years ago.” —L. Brent Bozell & Tim Graham

Upright: “It’s okay to disagree in politics, but it’s never okay to take action against another individual.” —White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders

It begins: “There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media. The President, and especially the White House Press Secretary, should understand their words matter. Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that.” —CNN president Jeff Zucker

Braying Jackass: “If you look at who [the bomb maker] targeted so far, it’s almost like they’re following Donald Trump’s Twitter feed. … The other part of Sarah Sanders’ statement is those who are responsible will be held accountable, and I think you have to ask how much Donald Trump is responsible for the climate that we’re in where things like this happen.” —Hillary Clinton aide Philippe Reines

Hypocrites: “President Trump’s words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence.” —House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

Friendly fire: “The people that are most offended by this are people who believe in affirmation action, because they’re like, ‘Elizabeth Warren didn’t need affirmative action.’ She perpetrated some level of fraud, and that hurts affirmative action.” —NBC’s Jon Allen

And last… “On the stupid ‘blame game’ the media & some politicians are engaged in over the pipe-bomb mailings: Knock it off. Pundits and politicians should keep their mouths closed and their minds open. Let the investigators do their job. Don’t speculate. We’ll know more soon enough.” —Ari Fleischer
