Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Robert Johnson, Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke, Frank J. Fleming, and more.

Upright: “There used to be the old saying that … when white America catches a cold, African Americans get pneumonia. Well, it’s going the opposite way now. White unemployment is going down. African-American unemployment is going down. That’s a plus-plus that you can’t argue with. And as I said earlier, I give the president credit for doing positive things.” —Black Entertainment Television founder Robert Johnson

Observations: “The AR-15 is owned by 20 million+ Americans. Democrats argue they can’t deport 21 million illegal aliens, but they’re going to confiscate semi-automatic rifles.” —Katie Pavlich

Circling the wagons: “[The American people] understand that impeachment is a very divisive measure, but if we have to go there, we’ll have to go there, but we can’t go there unless we have the facts, and we’ll follow the facts and we will follow the obstruction that the president is making … and make a decision when we’re ready.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Epic fail: “Play the radio, make sure the television — excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night, the phone — make sure that kids hear words.” —Joe Biden outlining his education plan

The BIG lie: “Comparing this president to the president we [had] is outrageous, number one. We didn’t lock people up in cages. We didn’t separate families.” —Joe Biden

Disputing two sides of the same coin: “In terms of democratic socialism, to equate what goes on in Venezuela with what I believe is extremely unfair.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

Non compos mentis: “We are the wealthiest country in the history of the world. And yet we have the highest child-poverty rate of almost any country on Earth.” —Bernie Sanders

Straight from the horse’s mouth: “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.” —Beto O'Rourke

Alpha jackass: “On August 3rd, in El Paso, Texas, two things became crystal clear for me and I think produced a turning point for this country. The first is just how dangerous Donald Trump is. The cost and the consequence of his presidency. A racism and violence that had long been a part of America was welcomed out into the open and directed to my hometown of El Paso, Texas, where 22 people were killed, dozens more grievously injured by a man carrying a weapon he should never have been able to buy in the first place, inspired to kill by our president.” —Beto O'Rourke

Race bait I: “Anyone who supports [Trump] is supporting racism.” —Pete Buttigieg

Race bait II: “If I am president of the United States, we will create an office in the White House to deal with the problem of white supremacy and hate crimes. And we will make sure that systemic racism is dealt with in substantive plans from criminal-justice reform to the disparities in healthcare to even one that we don’t talk about enough, which is the racism that we see in environmental injustice in communities of color all around this country.” —Sen. Cory Booker

And last… “The science is pretty settled we have only 10 years left to stop climate change. I mean, people have been saying that consistently for decades.” —Frank J. Fleming
