Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Bernie Sanders, AOC, Matt Walsh, and more.

Demo-gogues: “I think you’ve got to tell the truth. So, if in China they’ve reduced extreme poverty, does that make me a communist who supports China? No. I’m just telling you a simple fact.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders (“Actually, if you can stand up and credit China with reducing poverty without mentioning that they starved 45 million people to death in four years, then it pretty much makes you a communist apologist. Or at the very least, a ‘useful idiot.’” —Ed Morrissey)

Grand delusions: “The coronavirus is Trump’s Chernobyl — a growing catastrophe in which the government response is deadly because Trump is more worried about protecting the myths that define his alternative reality than protecting vulnerable people who will die.” —Washington Post columnist Brian Klaas

The BIG Lie: “There is a lot of misinformation, unfortunately, in campaigns these days. We see it from every, every corner. And I think what Biden was saying there is I’m not going to allow somebody to distort my record.” —spokeswoman Kate Bedingfield on Biden’s “you’re full of s—t” tirade

Braying jackass: “I’m going to be blunt. We are very worried about the president’s incompetence and lack of focus on fighting the spread of coronavirus. We believe that his lack of focus is hamstringing efforts to address this public crisis and inflicting pain on the stock market.” —Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer

Non compos mentis I: “There’s a lot of restaurants that are feeling the pain of racism. Where people are literally not patroning [sic] Chinese restaurants, they’re not patroning [sic] Asian restaurants, because of just straight-up racism around the coronavirus.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Non compos mentis II: “Viruses don’t have nationalities. This is racist.” —Rep. Ilhan Omar responding to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s tweet, “Everything you need to know about the Chinese coronavirus can be found on one, regularly-updated website.” (“The lady at the bakery asked if I wanted French bread. I told her that breads don’t have nationalities and then I called the police.” —Matt Walsh)

And last… “I may not be popular for saying this but I’ll compromise and support banning AR-14s in exchange for leaving other guns alone.” —former Army Ranger sniper Ryan Cleckner
