“We have not heard from city leadership nor have we heard from Governor Walz about tamping down this violence.”
“… “to help protect Minnesotans’ safety and maintain peace in the wake of George Floyd’s death.”
“I’m not going to be in a position where people are dying and we have ventilators in our state somewhere else.”
Taking it to the limit
“This will be a period of disruption for the local community. I understand that.”
“Congress is a group of reprobates for not addressing the crisis on our border”
“No more division, xenophobia or nativism.”
“I guess I would have to read up more about the intentions…”

“state authorities told federal officials that they would not participate in vehicle maintenance and the other jobs”

“It may become the measure by which all future scandals are judged.”

Chaos in the streets, looting, injuries… these are not the hallmarks of a “protest”
The worst sort of shame
The spin zone
“…to assist the Milwaukee Police Department upon request in the aftermath of violence in Milwaukee’s Sherman Park neighborhood”

“Is the reason that … the Obama administration and the Holder Justice Department leaned on you to keep them out?”
Johnson: Police didn’t fire a single shot.
Worst. Vacation. Evah.
“Folks didn’t know.”
Autopsy: All the shots came from in front.
Leadership and vacuums.
“They can erect barricades and check points, inspect cars, confiscate guns…”
“It is time that we confront the crisis along the border head-on through immediate and aggressive action.”
Former cop, now elected official pens an op-ed.
