Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Piers Morgan, Peter King, Kamala Harris, AOC, and more.

Friendly fire I: “Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal, and it’s a massive problem. What’s the point in calling yourself a liberal if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view? You know, this snowflake culture that we now operate in … it’s all completely skewed to an environment where everyone’s offended by everything, and no one’s allowed to say a joke.” —Piers Morgan

Friendly fire II: “People want a fair immigration system. They don’t want an open-door invitation for everybody to come at once.” —former Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

Endorsements you don’t want: “Your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care, than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election, and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘Okay, I personally like so-and-so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.” —Jill Biden

Non Compos Mentis: “Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King had been assassinated in … the late ‘70s.” —Joe Biden

Drinking the Kool-Aid: “['Assault weapons’] are weapons of mass slaughter. I don’t see any need for them in everyday society. I think the assault weapons ban is timely now, especially in view of the shooting in El Paso and Dayton” —Rep. Peter King

Dezinformatsiya: “The bottom line is the greatest terrorist threat in this country are white men.” —CNN commentator Angela Rye

Class warfare: “As president, I will repeal Trump’s tax scam and give the middle class the most significant tax cut in generations.” —Sen. Kamala Harris

Power broker: “I have not been comfortable with Bernie’s [Medicare for All] plan.” —Medicare for All Act cosponsor Kamala Harris (“The reason I’m supporting Medicare for All is really quite simple: it’s the right thing to do.” —Harris, Sept. 2017 | “Medicare is the most popular health plan in the country because it works.” —Harris, April 2019)

The BIG Lie: “The Electoral College is, in fact, a scam. … The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown. Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the electoral college effectively weights white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all are counted equally. … The Electoral College has got to go.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Pandering: “Like anyone who’s being honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes. I am sorry for harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations that we’ve had together. It is a great honor to be able to partner with Indian Country, and that’s what I’ve tried to do as a senator, and that’s what I promise I will do as president of the United States of America.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren

Biblically challenged: “The Bible, if it is about anything, is about justice. It is about reaching out to people in need. It is about standing up to the wealthy and the powerful.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

And last… “If you hear ‘Chick-fil-A’ and your first thought is ‘They hate gay people!’ you live in a bubble.” —Frank J. Fleming
