QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!”
President Trump tweeting that he and the First Lady tested positive for the coronavirus

“President Trump remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day. Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days. President Trump appreciates the outpouring of support for both he and the First Lady.”
The White House

“Praying for the swift recovery of my father and Melania and for all those impacted by COVID-19. As they fight this together, the President will continue to fight for the people of this great country.”
Ivanka Trump

“Jill and I send our thoughts to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a swift recovery. We will continue to pray for the health and safety of the president and his family.”
Joe Biden

“This is tragic. It’s very sad. But it also is something that, again, going into crowds, unmasked and all the rest was sort of a brazen invitation for something like this to happen. Sad that it did, but nonetheless, hopeful that it will be a transition to a saner approach to what this virus is all about.

“Maybe now the people who see the president of the United States with all the protection that he has, and the first lady, still having this exposure it might be … a learning experience.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi on President Trump getting COVID-19

“God bless the president and the first lady. If you pray, please pray for their speedy and complete recovery — and for everyone infected, everywhere. This virus is horrific and merciless — no one would wish its wrath on anyone.”
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow

“We sincerely pray the President & the First Lady do not have the worst of this disease. We must all pray for the full recovery of the President& his wife. For whatever religious or political persuasion you may be, we must all pray as millions of people are affected by this disease.”
Jesse Jackson

“Nobody’s been more critical of Trump over covid than me. But I don’t want him or his wife to die from it. Those who do are despicable.”
Piers Morgan

“The reaction from the liberal media has been overall quite despicable. There’s a lot of chortling. There’s a lot of schadenfreude. This is to be expected. It’s the Left. They’re garbage human beings. And yes, many have wished death upon Trump.”
Matt Vespa at Townhall.com

I “never dreamt that it would go off the tracks the way it did. Obviously It was not the debate I had planned for, and to that degree I was disappointed.”
Chris Wallace who moderated this week’s Trump-Biden debate

“The Coast Guard’s got nothing on Chris Wallace in terms of tossing drowning men life preservers.

“Now, the prissycons are all up in arms because Trump was mean and interrupted people. Boo hoo – tighten the hell up, people. Why would you be smiley while getting tagged-teamed by a media hack and Methuselah? The sensitive folks who are all about the decorum were not the target audience for those tactics. Trump likely figured, rightly, that the ‘Oh well I never!’ has nowhere else to go. None of them is thinking, ‘Yeah, I love conservative justices upholding free speech, free exercise and gun rights in an unpacked Supreme Court, a rebuilt military, a hardline on China, Mideast peace plus support for Israel, and not offing babies up to kindergarten, but Trump was really argumentative so I’m voting for the rioting Marxists who want to ban Buicks and BBQ grills’.” 
Columnist Kurt Schlichter

“It’s not the radical, anti-American policies that make Joe Biden unfit for office, however.  Rather it is the indisputable fact that Joe is not all there. Joe Biden is a hollow man. He is incredibly low energy, with obviously declining faculties. Joe Biden is physically and mentally incapable of performing the duties and responsibilities of the most difficult job in the world.  Joe Biden does not have the cognitive abilities to  string coherent sentences together without the use of notes or teleprompter, let alone make critical decisions.  Physically and mentally, Biden is a shell of his former self. The prospect of a 78-year-old man of such diminished capacities in the White House is terrifying, to say the least.”
Gary M. Wilmott writing in The American Thinker

“First, Democrats and their liberal-progressive allies won’t be able to resist a full-on assault on Barrett and her family, which will turn-off Midwest suburban women far more than Trump’s past tweets. Before Trump even nominated Barrett, they launched their preemptive strike against Barrett by tying her Catholic faith to the dystopian Handmaid’s Tale where women are subjugated by men, which seemed an odd attack given Barrett’s appointment would make her one of the most powerful women in the world.

“The second and more important reason Barrett’s nomination will bring many suburban women back into the fold is entirely due to who she is. Many women will view Barrett as a regular suburban mom just like them. This is where Barrett’s biography is deadly to Democratic attack lines: small-town, middle America, Catholic, teacher, mother of seven, with two kids adopted from Haiti after a devasting hurricane and one kid with Down’s Syndrome. Demonizing any part of her biography inherently demonizes thousands of other women sharing that same trait or who will find nothing but goodness in Barrett’s biography.”
Matt Mayer, the Spectator
