QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Welcome to the dawn of a new unified Republican government.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan

“Oh, you know, I’m just loving this, I’m just loving this — all this talk, I read the headlines about how he is not, Trump is not being transparent. We just got done, we’re finishing with eight years of an administration that said it would be the most transparent in history, that did nothing but hide information from the American people.

“By God, by gum, Trump didn’t tell them he was going out to dinner last night, this is awful. This awful. Got to tell you, I’ve been laughing all day.”
Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell

“Historians are going to see him (Obama) as a textbook definition of a guy who won on hope and change, who won with a wave of goodwill, and who completely destroyed his presidency with liberal overreach, beginning with Obamacare. And this is a rejection of ideology.”
Charles Krauthammer

“The same country that elected Donald Trump elected Barack Obama. I thought Donald Trump disqualified himself at numerous points. But there is now this idea that anyone who voted for him has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric. Like, there are guys in my neighborhood that I love, that I respect, that I think have incredible qualities who are not afraid of Mexicans, and not afraid of Muslims, and not afraid of blacks. They’re afraid of their insurance premiums.”
Comedian Jon Stewart

“I would not advise people who feel strongly or are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised over the course of the campaign, I would not advise them to be silent. I’ve been the subject of protests during the course of my eight years.  And I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that hasn’t been subject to these protests.”
President Obama

“We lost because of awful lot of hard-working Americans who live in areas where we did not pay much attention to. Barack Obama won these people. They are not racist. They did not vote for the Democrats this time.”
VP Joe Biden

“There have been a few times this past week when all I wanted to do is just to curl up with a good book, or our dogs, and never leave the house again.”
Hillary Clinton, in her first remarks since losing the presidential race

“I told you I didn’t vote. But what I didn’t tell you is that if I had voted, I would have voted on Trump. Everybody told me not to say that I loved the debates, I loved his approach.”
Kanye West at a concert

 “He may be ridiculous and irresponsible, but he is not a fool, and he is an inspired, mercurial handler of TV. He is a natural.”
San Francisco film writer David Thomson on Donald Trump
