QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“We have a lousy wall over here now, but at least it stops 90, 95 percent. When we put up the real wall, we’re going to stop 99 percent. Maybe more than that.”
President Donald Trump after inspecting prototypes of the border wall

“First of all, I think the border– did you see it? How high it is … I mean, really? In a civilized society, we do something like that. As obnoxious as it is– You know, that’s a community there with a border running through it. Okay, we have a difference of opinion that, but a wall that big separating people? I mean really?”
Nancy Pelosi

“Democrat candidates might be sketchy about admitting that, especially in more 50-50 seats, but of course they’re going to impeach Donald Trump. Do you think that MSNBC or CNN would allow for anything less? And by the way, there aren’t that many Blue Dog Democrats left in Congress. They are radical leftist, socialist Democrats. They are like Nancy Pelosi. They are far-left people.

“That’s who’s winning their primaries, and do you think that the far-left ‘Resist’ movement base of the Democrat Party would accept anything other than impeachment?

“If we don’t keep the House, we lose the opportunity to enact the next stage of great things for the economy; the reform that’s needed to continue this growth in the long run. The whole government shuts down and Trump can’t do anything in the last two years because we’re in an impeachment battle. That would be just heartbreaking for us.”
Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy during an interview on WISN

“This bridge was about goodness, not sadness. Now we’re feeling immense sadness, uncontrollable sadness. And our hearts go out to all those affected, their friends and their families.”
Florida International University president Mark Rosenberg, after a newly installed pedestrian bridge collapsed, killing six people and injuring nine

“People don’t understand that Hollywood is a very violent place. You see a lot of people who never work again. For even speaking up the whole thing is that they cut off your head so that the next person doesn’t speak.”
Actor Terry Crews
