QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Joe, I ran because of you. I ran because of Barack Obama. Because you did a poor job. If I thought you did a good job, I would have never run.”
President Trump at the debate

“Children are brought here by coyotes and lots of bad people, cartels. They used to use them to get into our country. We now have as strong a border as we’ve ever had.”
At the debate, Trump, on the child separation policy at the U.S.-Mexico border

“We don’t need money. We have plenty of money. In fact, we beat Hillary Clinton with a tiny fraction of the money that she was able to raise.”
Trump, on fundraising

“I take full responsibility. It’s not my fault that it came here. It’s China’s fault. And you know what, it’s not Joe’s fault that it came here either.”
Trump, on the coronavirus pandemic

“It’s not clear that Trump really had to do anything in this debate except not Nadler himself on national TV. With the exception of some of the media polls, the momentum is all in his direction, and the president is out holding rally after rally while Gropey J is sitting in his basement wrapped in a shawl watching episode after episode of Matlock. Joe took four days out of the last 15 days of the campaign to prep for last night’s disaster and that performance was as good as he could get. If America is dumb enough to elect him, all Putin has to do is drag out a summit for two hours and, before he nods off, Oldfinger will sign Alaska back to the Russians.”
Columnist Kurt Schlichter

Not one single person with private insurance would lose their insurance under my plan, nor did they under ‘Obamacare.’ They did not lose their insurance unless they chose they wanted to go to something else.
Joe Biden at the debate

“This one is so laughable it does not need much exploring. The promise of keeping the plans they held that led to millions who lost their healthcare and private doctors was such a harsh  reality that even Time Magazine had listed it as its ‘Lie Of The Year.’”
Brad Slager covers politics and the business side of the Hollywood industry at outlets such as RedState, HotAir, Twitchy, and The Federalist

“What bona fide presidential candidate would arrogantly hide in his basement during the heat of a campaign, especially in the last few weeks of an ever-tightening one? If the liberal media weren’t providing Biden cover, he couldn’t get away with this. If they were even raising questions about his intentional invisibility, this campaign would look far different, and far less surreal. As President Donald Trump has hopscotched the country, traveling thousands of miles to appear at vigorous, humongous campaign rallies, Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, are nowhere to be found. We’ve never had a presidential candidate virtually opt out of the campaign.”
David Limbaugh is a writer, author and attorney

“Two weeks before the election, there are signs that delays continue to plague the U.S. mail, a tracking effort by the USA TODAY Network and the University of Maryland’s Howard Center for Investigative Journalism found.

“Of 64 letters and packages sent short distances within battleground states since mid-September, 14 took longer than the U.S. Postal Service’s own three-day service standard for first-class local mail. Most of the problems arose in Michigan, although Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida each had at least one late arrival.

“Eight of the shipments took a week or more to get to their cross-town destinations, including one letter that still has not arrived, according to the post office’s online tracking system. The missing letter was put in the mail two weeks ago, on Oct. 6.”
USA TODAY

“Why haven’t you seen any stories from NPR about the NY Post’s Hunter Biden story?”
Kelly McBride, NPR’s “public editor”

“We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions. And quite frankly, that’s where we ended up, this was … a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way.”
Terence Samuel, NPR’s managing editor for news

“Public broadcasting is a comical phrase. Its audience is not the public. It is the left. PBS and NPR don’t care one iota what everyone else thinks … even if everyone else pays a chunk of their budget through taxes.”
Tim Graham is executive editor of NewsBusters and director of media analysis for the Media Research Center
