Tuesday Short Cuts

"You can disapprove of what the president says every day, or that day, and still support his broader agenda." —Dan Crenshaw

For the record: “Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia. But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two — How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. Pay for NATO or not!” —Donald Trump responding to the French president’s comments about nationalism

Upright: “[President Trump’s] style is not my style. … It’s never how I would conduct myself. But … conservatives can hold multiple ideas in their head at the same time. We can be like, ‘Wow, he shouldn’t have tweeted that,’ and still support him. … You can disapprove of what the president says every day, or that day, and still support his broader agenda.” —Representative-elect Dan Crenshaw

Who’s up for Round 2? “Reagan won 49 states in his re-election in 1984. It’s hard to imagine any person being able to do that again… well, maybe Trump if Hillary runs again.” —Frank Fleming

Observations: “What’s the difference between bogus claims that Trump conspired with Russians to interfere with an election & Democratic candidates’ lawyers advocating that illegal immigrants’ votes be counted? Answer: the latter is actually COLLUSION.” —David Limbaugh

Dezinformatziya: “Brenda Snipes in Broward County is a Republican. … She’s hardly a Democratic official, or someone doing the bidding of the Democratic candidates there.” —MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell (Snipes, the Broward election supervisor, is and has always been a leftist Democrat.)

Those “stupid” women… “I will always wonder about what led so many, women in particular, to reject an exceptionally qualified female candidate and instead choose a misogynist as their president.” —Michelle Obama (Because conservative women are not emotionally incontinent dupes.)

Vile and graphic: “Fox News jerks the President off every single day. It is political masturbation on that channel. That’s right. I said it.” —CNN political commentator Tara Setmayer

And last… “It strikes me as a bit ridiculous that Amazon went through all that theater only to choose NYC and Northern Virginia. On the upside, we found out which local and state governments would shamelessly whore themselves for a corporation and waste taxpayer money.” —Erick Erickson
