Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Mike Pompeo, Ronna McDaniel, Don Lemon, and more.

Insight: “We don’t have an option of living with inflation and its attendant tragedy. We have an alternative, and that is the program for economic recovery.” —Ronald Reagan

For the record: “China has a history of infecting the world and they have a history of running substandard laboratories. These are not the first times that we’ve had a world exposed to viruses as a result of failures in a Chinese lab.” —Mike Pompeo

Double standards: “Brett Kavanaugh — every accuser was put on TV. It was wall-to-wall coverage. They went into his high-school yearbook. They said he needed an FBI investigation. Michael Avenatti was on TV accusing him of gang rape from an accuser who had never even met Brett Kavanaugh. Then you go to Joe Biden — five weeks of silence. Nineteen interviews without a single question. He won’t [allow] people to go into his records in the University of Delaware. They’re calling on the DNC to do the investigation. It went from ‘Me Too,’ ‘Me Too,’ ‘Me Too’ to move on, move on, move on in a nanosecond because he’s a Democrat.” —RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel

Upright: “My advice for Democrats accused of hypocrisy on Kavanaugh versus Biden: Just apologize on how you treated Kavanaugh or shut up. Anything else makes you look like a ginormous tool.” —Frank J. Fleming

Non compos mentis: “There’s been so many investigations of the vice president. … Barack Obama trusted Joe Biden. I trust Joe Biden and those investigations have been done. … This is like the Hillary emails because there was nothing there.” —DNC Chairman Tom Perez

Dezinformatsiya: “What is it about President Obama that really gets under [Trump’s] skin? Is it because he’s smarter than you? Better educated? Made it on his own? Didn’t need daddy’s help? Wife is more accomplished? Better looking? … That he’s a black man that’s accomplished [and] became president?” —CNN’s Don Lemon

And last… “Brett Kavanaugh went through: SEVEN FBI background checks. Endless media scrutiny. Multiple weeks of Senate hearings. A rigorous legal cross-examination. All to clear his name and prove his innocence. Would Joe Biden survive the same level of scrutiny?” —Charlie Kirk
