Insight: “There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.” —Booker T. Washington (1856-1915)

Braying Jackass: “I’m very proud of my brother [Rep. Joaquin Castro] and my brother took what is publicly available information that newspapers, other publications regularly do about people who maxed out, made the maximum contribution to President Trump here in San Antonio and he put that forward as he said as a lament to say, ‘Wow, just look.’ I believe that my brother had every right to do that and people should know who was funding that campaign of hate.” —Julian Castro

Non Compos Mentis: “I watched what happened when the kids from Parkland marched … when I was vice president.” —Joe Biden, who was a year removed from the White House when the shooting occurred

The BIG Lie I: “I think the election was stolen from the people of Georgia. I don’t know that empirically I would have won, but if you add together the thousands of people who faced extraordinarily long lines, who faced hurdles that should not happen in a democracy, the votes that we know were not counted, the secretary of state, who was also my opponent in the race, purged more than 1.4 million voters over basically an eight-year period.” —Stacey Abrams

The BIG Lie II: “The warnings of the scientists 10 years ago, 20 years ago, 30 years ago, unfortunately, were accurate.” —Al Gore

The BIG Lie III: “After the tragedies in El Paso and Dayton, there have been 255 mass shootings in 2019 — more than days have passed in the year. Our children are twice as likely to die from gun violence than cancer.” —Andrew Yang

The BIG Lie IV: “5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren

The BIG Lie V: “Michael Brown’s murder forever changed Ferguson and America."—Sen. Kamala Harris

And last… "If you believe the Clintons crafted a genius plan to murder Epstein you’re going to have to explain why Hillary wasn’t even able to find Wisconsin on a map.” —Ben Shapiro
