QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“He’s had an incredibly successful first nine months in office, and I think the next 3½, or 2½, three years, are going to be equally as successful, including getting tax reform done, which is going to be a big deal and make a really big impact on most Americans. And they’re going to be begging for four more years of President Trump.”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders

America First is “half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”
Sen. John McCain in his acceptance speech as he  was awarded the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal Monday night in Philadelphia

“Well it’s a shocker. Yeah, well I hear it and people have to be careful because at some point I fight back. You know, I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back and it won’t be pretty.”
President Trump reacting to McCain

“It’s fine with me. I’ve faced some fairly significant adversaries in the past.”
McCain shooting back at Trump

“Well, I just don’t see that in the president’s agenda or in his philosophy. His moorings are conservative, and he is governing as a center-right president who believes that we pay too much in taxes, that we’re over-regulated, that we have not taken terrorists seriously. We’ve not even been willing to call them terrorists for the last however many years. This country is safer and more prosperous under President Donald Trump.”
Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway reacting to McCain

“I reckon she’s been through enough. You know it’s a very interesting relationship. It’s a very interesting marriage, but I don’t think every time she sits in a chair she needs to be asked about her husband.”
Sarah Ferguson, an employee of the state-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), who interviewed Hillary Clinton. When challenged on whether the pair discussed Bill Clinton’s infidelity,  Ferguson made the startling admission that she took pity on her subject.

“We have seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty. At times, it can seem like the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together.”
Former President George W. Bush

“Christmas came early for the liberal Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) on Thursday when former President George W. Bush spoke out against the Donald Trump administration. In a disgusting display of sudden respect for a long time political foe, the network’s championed Bush’s hammering of the current president. And the icing on their anti-Trump cake was former President Obama doing the exact same thing too.

“The liberal media treated President Bush as an enemy for 16-years (his term and Obama’s) but now that they had a new enemy in Trump, they suddenly found something worth elevating him for.”
Nicholas Fondacaro, a news analyst on newsbusters.org

We can see them, they can see us. But in a way, it can be negative because we’re always being watched.”
Border Patrol Agent Theron Francisco on see-through walls on the Mexican border
