Best Quotes of the Week – November 14, 2020

“Whoa, whoa, whoa.  I just think we have to be very clear…She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting.  Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing you this.”

Neil Cavuto, FOX news anchor, interrupting a briefing by White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany

McEnany had launched into a litany of conspiracy-laden allegations, accusing the Democrats of facilitating illegal voting and rigging the election to beat Donald Trump.

“I have no intention of leaving.  This is an important job. I’ve been doing it now for a very long time.  I’ve been doing it under six presidents.  It’s an important job, and my goal is to serve the American public no matter what the administration is.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, on CNN

“I’m very concerned what he might do in his remaining 70 days in office.  Is he going to take some type of military action?  Is he going to release some type of information that could, in fact, threaten our national security interests?  If Vice President Pence and the cabinet had an ounce of fortitude and spine and patriotism, I think they would seriously consider invoking the 25th Amendment and pushing Donald Trump out because he is just very unpredictable now.”

John Brennan, former CIA Director, on Cuomo Prime Time, November 10

“My evolution started when the president doubled down in the lead-up to the 2020 election on his charges that our elections are rigged and fraudulent in a way that he hadn’t previously.  It became a systemic attack made completely without evidence, aimed at undermining a basic pillar of our democracy.  I know there’s no evidence for systemic fraud because I had spent the better part of every election for four decades working in Republican poll-watcher programs and elections day operations.  For the president of the United States, the leader of the free world and head of the Republican Party, to make completely unsubstantiated charges about our elections being rigged is not right.”

Ben Ginsberg, Republican “super-lawyer”, explaining why he has defied his party and condemned Trump’s refusal to concede

Ginsberg had been involved in the 2000 presidential recount debacle.

“There is no loss from him getting the briefings.  If that’s not occurring by Friday, I will step in as well and be able to push them and to say this needs to occur so that regardless of the outcome of the election, whichever way that it goes, people can be ready for that actual task.”

Sen. James Lankford, Republican of Oklahoma, declaring he will intervene if President-elect Joe Biden doesn’t start receiving security briefings by November 13
