For the record: “Keep in mind that Mueller was not simply investigating Trump; he was also investigating the Russian government. He exonerated Trump but not Vladimir Putin. Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies on charges of conspiracy and identity theft. There was a conspiracy to influence the 2016 elections. Trump just wasn’t a part of it.” —Marc A. Thiessen

Notice a pattern here? “Democrats in 2015: Everyone must accept results of the election. Democrats day after the election 2016: We do not accept the results of the election. Democrats 2017: Everyone must accept findings of the Mueller report. Democrats 2019: We do not accept findings of Mueller report.” —Charlie Kirk

Observations: “There are many things Democrats do not do well. But the thing they do least well is lose.” —Star Parker

Demo-gogues: “I opposed Clarence Thomas’ nomination. I voted against him. But I also realized there was a real and perceived problem the committee faced.

Rashida Tlaib

Non sequitur: “We’ve got to do away with the Electoral College. We have a system now that was — it’s a defect in our democracy.” —Eric Holder (Actually, the Electoral College is meant to correct a defect prevalent in pure democracies.)

Non Compos Mentis: “We may never really know what happened on the street that night in Chicago.” —CNN’s Brian Stelter regarding Jussie Smollett (On the contrary, we know exactly what happened.)

And last… “Imagine if a white male actor faked a hate crime against himself by pretending black men attacked him in the middle of the night — then was subsequently acquitted of all charges. #JussieSmollett is an utter perversion of justice who just DESTROYED the myth of white privilege.” —Candace Owens
