Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Charlie Kirk, Rich Lowry, Hillary Clinton, and more.

For the record: “The second vote Chuck Schumer ever cast as a United States Senator was to NOT allow witnesses in the Clinton impeachment trial. Today he’s spent nearly 10 hours fighting to call new witnesses in the Trump impeachment trial. What changed, Chuck?” —Charlie Kirk

Trailblazing: “Adam Schiff must be the first prosecutor to show up at a trial and say, ‘Gosh, there are a bunch of things I don’t know about this case but would be interested in finding out.’” —Rich Lowry

Non compos mentis: “I’m not here to villainize and to say that billionaires are inherently morally corrupt — but they are, I mean, I think there is a case, but um, but, it’s not to say that, it’s to say that this system that we live in, life in capitalism, always ends in billionaires. If you don’t do it, someone else will. It’s who decides to make that choice is just kind of up to, you know, circumstance.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Pot, meet kettle: “Nobody likes [Bernie Sanders], nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.” —Hillary Clinton on Bernie Sanders

Braying jenny: “How could we have known? [Harvey Weinstein] raised money for me, for the Obamas, for Democrats in general. And that at the time was something that everybody thought made sense. Of course, if all of us had known what we know now, it would have affected our behavior.” —Hillary Clinton

Belly laugh of the week: “We do have some well-off people who support Democratic candidates, there’s no doubt about that, but they’ve never bought a TV station. They’ve never gobbled up radio stations. They’ve never created newspapers in local communities to put out propaganda. That’s all been done not just by Murdoch and Fox, but by Sinclair and by the Koch brothers and by so many others who have played a long game about how we really influence the thinking of Americans.” —Hillary Clinton complaining that the Leftmedia doesn’t have enough influence

And last… “Watching Schiff lecture us all about fair process is like attending a sportsmanship conference hosted by the Houston Astros.” —The Daily Caller’s Eddie Zipperer
