Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Josh Hammer, Anthony Fauci, Joe Biden, and more.

Upright: “It is difficult, bordering on impossible, to exaggerate the nature of the threat posed to America this century by the Chinese Communist Party. The People’s Republic of China is not a tiny rogue despotism, a la North Korea or Cuba. Rather, China is the third-largest country by landmass and the second-largest country by gross domestic product in the world. And China acts like it, seeking to create a new global order by forcibly exporting its thuggish political system of one-party rule, Orwellian surveillance state, mass censorship, persecution of religious minorities, currency manipulation, intellectual property theft and cynical allying with the world’s worst geopolitical actors.” —Josh Hammer

Straight from the horse’s mouth: “We can’t stay locked down for such a considerable period of time that you might do irreparable damage and have unintended consequences, including consequences for health. … I don’t want people to think that any of us feel that staying locked down for prolonged period of time is the way to go.” —Anthony Fauci

Race bait: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” —Joe Biden

Nothing to see here… “The comments made at the end of the Breakfast Club interview were in jest, but let’s be clear about what the VP was saying: he was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump’s any day. Period.” —Biden campaign adviser Symone Sanders

Read my lips: “Nobody making under $400,000 will have their taxes raised. Period.” —Joe Biden (“If it sounds too good to be true that a candidate is promising more than $6 trillion in new government spending (for everything from climate change to infrastructure to healthcare) without raising taxes, well, that’s because it is.” —Brad Polumbo)

Braying jackass: “He’s gonna get his fat a— beat. Now, the question is, by how much? … If we go and take it to him and talk about what a massive, fat failure he is, then we can run away with this thing. The idea is not just to defeat Trump, you have to defeat Trump-ism. You have to defeat the idea that the United States of America is a place and not an idea.” —James Carville, totally misrepresenting “Trump-ism”

Alpha jackass: “I would vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them. He wasn’t my candidate, but taking back the White House is that important. Four more years of Trump will replace what remains of our democracy with unchecked rule by kleptocrats, fascists, religious fanatics, gun nuts, and know-nothings.” —The Nation’s Katha Pollitt

Double standards: “I do believe [Tara] Reade. Justice can be delayed, but should never be denied.” —Ilhan Omar, who later added, “I will vote for [Joe Biden] and help him defeat Trump.”

And last… “Your daily reminder that we are 67 days into a 15 day lockdown. Politicians lied.” —Liz Wheeler
