Quotes from this episode:

“There is so much rancor in the Senate, in politics in general, certainly in the House … so things that we would have thought impossible even a decade ago or two, like the ending of the filibuster for federal judges, for example, are not impossible anymore.” — George Upper 

“When Trump was elected, the Democratic mantra was the illegitimacy of the presidency.” — George Upper 

“At some point, you stop delegitimizing the person and you begin delegitimizing the office and that’s a disturbing, disturbing thought.” — Josh Manning 

“It’s hard to tell whether they’re going to vote for Biden or they’re going to vote for Trump, or whether they’re going to stay home. But it’s a big enough group of voters that can swing the election either way.” — Joe Setyon 

“Speaking of adults who don’t know anything. I want to quickly talk about AOC.” — Josh Manning 

“For AOC to be lobbing grenades at anyone else when that’s what her home district looks like is just ridiculous.” — George Upper 

“The narrative on the left is that politicians are responsible for it as long as the politicians are Donald Trump. That’s the narrative from the left. It’s ridiculous.” — George Upper
