48 hard votes to confirm?
Believe him when he tells you who he is.
Some traditions never seem to die
“Wow, this guy doesn’t know what it means to be president.”
“I would happily take a third term of George W. Bush rather than this.”
“We’ve seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty.”
“He is not my bride and, likewise, I am neither his bride nor bridegroom.”
“It’s about the people, not about you.”
Closing the gap.
“The people who voted for [Trump], it’s almost like ‘Any mammal will do.'”
Good work if you can get it
Just what we needed. #sigh
“This is a more fundamental threat to human rights than George Bush…”
“…they have to suck it up.”
“Just 37 percent of millennials had a ‘very unfavorable’ view of communism…”
Long history of anti-free press in America
“…the relief effort can’t afford any distractions.”
“…history is watching. And I suspect its verdict will be harsh.”
“A staffer has called, but no, he has not called.”
Regulations and taxes.
“None of this is true, but many Americans continue to believe it.”
“I could have said that.”
Old and new.
Promises to do “everything in my power” to prevent confirmation.
History and mystery
Like that would be different
“This is the war of our time.”
Also… Jimmy Carter
“He doesn’t have a fundamental understanding of what caused 9/11.”
“Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them.”
Not so fast…
