“From the time I came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower, and even before I was sworn in as your President of the United States, the Radical Left Democrats – the enemy of the hard-working men and women of this Country – have been engaged in a Witch-Hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement. You remember it just like I do: Russia, Russia, Russia; the Mueller Hoax; Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine; Impeachment Hoax 1; Impeachment Hoax 2; the illegal and unconstitutional Mar-a-Lago raid; and now this.”
Former president Donald Trump issued a statement responding to the news that a Manhattan grand jury indicted him on Thursday, calling it “political persecution and election interference.”

“They don’t do this to the Biden administration or the Biden family. Or to the Clintons or to any one of the corrupt Democrats out there that have made millions and probably billions where there’s smoke like you wouldn’t even believe … this is weaponized justice at its absolute worst.”
Donald Trump Jr

“With all the problems facing our country — many exacerbated by Radical Left governance — now a George Soros funded D.A. issues a political indictment against a former president. Leftists are destroying America.”
U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI)

“President Donald J. Trump is a victim of a corrupt and distorted version of the American justice system and history. He will be vindicated.”
Alina Habba, an attorney for Trump, said in a statement

“The worst, weakest, most abusive case of prosecutorial indiscretion in my 60 years of practicing law. I have never seen a weaker case. I have never seen a case that would be so easy to win if the person’s name was not Donald Trump and the city was not New York. There’s a risk he could lose with some of the 12 jurors in New York who will be terrified to come home to their family and friends and say we acquitted Trump. And so this is the most abusive case I’ve ever seen.”
Renowned civil liberties lawyer Alan Dershowitz, a Democrat who broke party ranks to defend Trump in his first impeachment trial, criticized the decision to indict Trump

“Everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence.”
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

“In Constitutional America, it’s ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ In Democrat fascist America, it’s ‘prove your innocence.’”
Tim Young

“Will the porn payments finally end Trump, probably not, but that’s not the point. The goal is to erode the man slowly; he’s facing these charges, plus multiple investigations stemming from 2020 election interference. The real crime Trump committed was running in 2016 and beating Hillary Clinton. That’s an unforgivable sin in the eyes of progressives, who ironically don’t like Hillary all that much, either.”
Matt Vespa, Townhall

“Hale is a murderer who deserves to burn in hell. She killed six people, but to the Left, the right kind of people died. With Covenant being a Christian school, I’m sure many liberals feel these people deserved it; their side did boo God during the 2012 Democratic National Convention. If you’re a progressive, ignore the facts, and focus on the alleged anti-trans bigotry, the supposed transphobic pieces of legislation recently passed, because that is what we should be blaming for Hale’s rampage. Hale’s not to blame at all because of…differing opinions. At its core, that’s what many are suggesting in liberal America. What an obtuse explanation for this tragedy that only snowflakes find satisfying.”  
Matt Vespa, Townhall

“Even if Democrats somehow managed to win enough congressional seats to entertain a constitutional amendment repealing the Second Amendment, and even if enough states agreed with repeal, and even if Democrats then outlawed guns at the federal and state levels, that’s when the hard part starts — they’d have to enforce the new ‘no guns’ regime. Yet sending heavily armed federal agents door to door across all of America to collect hundreds of millions of guns, or even just tens of millions if ‘assault weapons’ are all they sought to confiscate, doesn’t seem, well, safe or peaceful.”
Nate Jackson

“While we saw the worst of humanity, we also saw the best of humanity: in the police officers who ran into danger directly toward a killer with no regard for their own lives. Gratitude does not begin to cover it, for the utter selflessness of putting their lives between the killer and the innocent.”
Tennessee Governor Bill Lee

“It is our moment to do what the brave officers in Nashville did: confront and engage the crisis. These aren’t men who sat on the sidelines, letting the shooter take aim at more children. They rushed straight into the face of danger and protected the weak. As Christians, we’re called to do the same: confront evil and protect the vulnerable so they may know Jesus.”
Tony Perkins

“The legacy media have a preset narrative machine when it comes to mass shootings. That narrative machine takes into account the identities of the shooter and the victims, and then churns out an explanation for the shooting. White shooter, black victims: systemic racism. Black shooter, white victims: alienation caused by systemic racism. Muslim shooter, gay victims: Christian homophobia. … But if we truly wish to prevent future acts of violence by unhinged lunatics, we ought to utilize a lens other than the lie of victimhood.”
Ben Shapiro

“There’s no such thing as gun violence; there’s only human violence … And the number one cause of death for children in America remains abortion.”
Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA)

“Shooter Audrey Hale’s parents ‘couldn’t accept’ their daughter’s trans identity: report.”
New York Post

“Her parents refused to accept the delusional lie that their daughter was a man, so by progressive logic, they’re now responsible for her murder of Christian school kids.”
Ben Shapiro

“Our hearts go out to … the trans community as they are under attack right now.”
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

“God made me in her image. God made me transgender.”
Former Human Rights Campaign Press Secretary Charlotte Clymer

“So, lemme get this straight. You’re certain about ‘God’s’ gender, but not your own? Got it.”
Darrell B. Harrison

“It is telling that the Transgender Day of Visibility falls on the final day of Women’s History Month. Pride Month, in June, already exists to honor the LGBTQ+ community. Why must one of the days of Women’s History Month also be devoted to the acknowledgment of trans-identifying people?”
Cat Cattinson

“We gave the trans crowd everything they wanted — tolerance, acceptance, a key to the women’s room, and trophies meant for women. It just wasn’t enough. It never will be. That’s the problem.”
Kevin Downey Jr.

“We are going to look back years from now and wonder how we failed young girls so badly. Between social media and fashionable gender theories, we are making teenage girls depressed, anxious, and trans.”
Rich Lowry

“There is no greater expression of hatred and hostility towards women than to try to erase our existence as a category of people and to minimize us to being a construction of anyone’s imagination. Such an expression of hatred towards women is now the position of the Democratic Party, and one of the reasons why I could no longer remain in that party. By rejecting the objective truth, that there is such a thing as a woman, they are rejecting the existence of objective truth, as a whole, and removing all societal boundaries. And, when we remove those boundaries of what is actually true and false – not my truth, or your truth or their truth, or whatever it is – that there is such a thing as objective truth, then we remove all the boundaries of our society. And, we end up in a position – what we’re seeing right now – where, what is declared as ‘true’ is based on whatever those in power say that it is.”
Veteran and former Democrat Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard 

“You better have somebody on that stage who can do to him what I did to what I did to Marco [Rubio], because that’s the only thing that’s gonna defeat Donald Trump. And that means you gotta have the skill to do it, and that means you have to be fearless, because he (Trump) will come at you, and right at you. So you need to think about who’s got the skill to do that and who’s got the guts to do it. Because it’s not going to end nicely, no matter what. His end will not be a calm and quiet conclusion.”
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a former Donald Trump supporter, recalling the 2016 primary debate where he called out Rubio’s “inexperience,” as indicated by Rubio’s “memorized 25-second” speeches

“Ultimately, it is the responsibility of individuals to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, make responsible financial decisions, pursue education … and fight to break the cycle of poverty. Many poor remain poor because they do not know how to break the cycle of poverty. You don’t know what you don’t know. However, those who are determined to get out realize that it’s going to take hard work, perseverance, responsibility, and being savvy with the money they do have. They may only barely make it above the poverty line, but the example they set for their children — pushing them toward a better life and better opportunities — is breaking the cycle. This is the tenor of every successful immigrant story. It is as American as apple pie.”
Emmy Griffin

“Our country is deeply broken because we’ve rejected God. We’ve given a microphone to the most insane in our society and allowed them to desecrate everything that is beautiful and true, while we sit back apathetically because we want to be ‘accepting’ and ‘inclusive.’ What a mess.”
Michael Seifert

“There [are] enough problems that the Democrats have brought us. We have inflation. We have a border that’s wide open. We pay more for gasoline energy. We’ve got a world moving with war happening. … I don’t think Republicans should go after one another. … We can’t afford it.”
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy
