Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Matt Walsh, Piers Morgan, Chelsea Clinton, and more.

Insight: “We cannot afford to differ on the question of honesty if we expect our republic permanently to endure. Honesty is not so much a credit as an absolute prerequisite to efficient service to the public. Unless a man is honest, we have no right to keep him in public life; it matters not how brilliant his capacity.” —Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919)

Food for thought: “Like so many ‘bombshell’ revelations, the Melania tapes only make the Trumps look better. Secret recordings of FLOTUS and the worst thing they capture is her complaining about Christmas decorations? Give me a break. What do you think secret tapes of Michelle would sound like?” —Matt Walsh

Friendly fire: “Interesting to see those who’ve spent the last few years screaming that Trump’s an uncaring, heartless empathy-devoid b*stard now spewing their gleeful joy that he & his wife have a deadly virus. They’re no better than the man they loathe.” —Piers Morgan

For the record I: “I’ve said it many times, and let me be clear again: I condemn the KKK. I condemn all white supremacists. I condemn the Proud Boys. I don’t know much about the Proud Boys, almost nothing. But I condemn that.” —Donald Trump

For the record II: “I denounce white supremacy. I denounce anti-Semitism. I denounce racism. I denounce fascism. I denounce communism and any other -ism that is prejudiced toward people because of their race, religion, culture, tone of skin.” —Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio

Elitist contempt: “The people who were very transparent about, like, voting because they wanted a tax cut. Okay. But, like, you knew you also were voting for a racist, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, misogynistic, transphobic human being who was going to have a lot of power to manifest those, like, hateful bigoted values into the world. So that may be what is your motivation.” —Chelsea Clinton

The BIG Lie: “We never needed nursing home beds because we always had hospital beds. So, it just never happened in New York, where we needed to say to a nursing home, ‘We need you to take this person even though they’re COVID-positive.’ It never happened.” —Andrew Cuomo (Fact check: Yes it did.)

And last… “Republicans believe in forgiveness for your actual sins and Democrats believe in hating you for imagined sins. That difference has emerged as the major theme in this country.” —Scott Adams
