Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Ronald Reagan, Mollie Hemingway, Robert De Niro, and more.

Insight: “I’ve always believed that a lot of the trouble in the world would disappear if we were talking to each other instead of about each other.” —Ronald Reagan

Re: The Left: “The Democrats say they want a woman to be president, but they don’t mean it. When they have a woman [in Tulsi Gabbard] on the debate stage who shares their views but not their hateful attitudes toward America and non-leftist Americans, they treat her like a skunk at a garden party.” —John Hinderaker

Observations: “What the [impeachment] charge is keeps changing, of course. The whistleblower initially suggested a campaign finance violation arising from a call Trump had with the president of Ukraine. That morphed into a quid pro quo for military aid to Ukraine, then extortion, then bribery, then obstruction of justice, then back to a quid pro quo, but this time only a quid pro quo for a White House meeting. The lack of certainty among even Trump’s critics certainly worked in his favor.” —Mollie Hemingway

Non compos mentis I: “These hearings … are going to be much more like the O.J. trial, the great trial at the end of the 20th century, where people took sides very quickly. It wasn’t so much about the facts; it’s about your perspective, your history as a human being in this country.” —MSNBC’s Chris Matthews

Non compos mentis II: “I’m having a quick flashback to the O.J. trial, frankly, where the facts were damning, but it didn’t matter. And yet, he was innocent, but everybody knew he was guilty. Are we about to head into a situation like that where he’s going to get acquitted and yet everybody knew he’s guilty?” —MSNBC’s Chuck Todd

Alpha jackass: “Trump’s taken a lot of people down. He’s a piece of s—t who never should have been there in the first place. It’s a joke. You look at this fool and you say, what’s happening?” —actor Robert De Niro

Race bait: “Let’s be clear: It’s time for our government to have a full-blown national conversation about reparations. We must be honest about our history, and do what’s right so that our nation can begin to heal.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren

And last… “The problem with our political system is you can only punish one party per election when what we need is a way to constantly punish both parties.” —Frank J. Fleming
