For the record I: “What [Trump attorney Sidney] Powell was describing would amount to the single greatest crime in American history. … We invited Sidney Powell on this show. … But she never sent us any evidence, despite a lot of polite requests. Not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her. When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people with positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either. Nor did she provide any [Thursday] at the press conference. … She never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another. Not one.” —Tucker Carlson

For the record II: “Like Tucker, I’m willing to believe just about anything. The Left lost their minds and would stop at nothing to take Donald Trump out of office. But we’re weeks into this with no proof. No evidence. And it just looks like an absolute circus at every presser. Put up or shut up.” —Bethany S. Mandel

Observations: “This supposed fraud in 2020 failed to save numerous Democrats below the presidential level. In Arizona, for example, you can complain about the Democrat who serves as Maricopa County recorder, but if he was in on the fix, you might also ask why he lost his own reelection race. In Pennsylvania, Democrats lost two out of the three statewide races, both by agonizingly small margins.” —Dan McLaughlin

Demo-gogue: “I am not going to shut down the economy. Period. I’m going to shut down the virus. That’s what I’m going to shut down. No national shutdown because every region, every area, every community can be different.” —Joe Biden 

You owe us: “Black and brown communities organized across the country to make sure Joe Biden won the White House, and he did that, but now it’s time for payback. And now it’s time to make sure that we invest the resources necessary to rebuild our nation in a way that is representative of all of us, so we can truly have the people’s house.” —Congressman-elect Jamaal Bowman

And last… “Not requiring voter ID is the dumbest concept ever.” —Caleb Hull
