HEROES OF THE WEEK
VILLAINS OF THE WEEK
QUOTES OF THE WEEK
“Mr. Cohen, an attorney, received a monthly retainer, not from the campaign and having nothing to do with the campaign, from which he entered into, through reimbursement, a private contract between two parties, known as a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA.”
President Donald Trump changed his story regarding $130,000 in hush money paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 campaign, saying Thursday he reimbursed lawyer Michael Cohen and denying the arrangement was improper
“We’re not changing any stories. All I’m telling you that this country is right now running so smooth and to be bringing up that kind of crap and bringing up witch hunts all the time. That’s all you want to talk about.”
President Trump on Friday talking to reporters
“Do we really want peace? Then let’s ban all weapons so we don’t have to live in fear of war”
“After seeing the young female hired to verbally bully anyone who worked for @realDonaldTrump I now understand why eating Tide Pods is popular. That level of vulgarity is best handled with a mouth washed out w/ soap. @PressSec handled it professionally but I pray her kids never see that. I pray more they never bully another person like that.”
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee whose daughter, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, bore the brunt of some of the harshest lines from Michelle Wolf’s routine at last Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner
“The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a failure last year, but this year was an embarrassment to everyone associated with it. The filthy ‘comedian’ totally bombed (couldn’t even deliver her lines-much like the Seth Meyers weak performance). Put Dinner to rest, or start over!”
“We’re winning so much they (the Left) gotta spin our wins. The economy is running at 2.8% growth – not enough! Well, then just wait until next quarter. Tariffs? Our opponents are folding. Unemployment is in freefall, and people are dropping off of the food stamp program – this is a tragedy for liberals, because they feed on those who need handouts. Remember: Good news for Americans is bad news for Democrats.”
Conservative commentator Kurt Schlichter
“This was supposed to be the season in which the Milwaukee Bucks took a step toward becoming an elite NBA team and built momentum and excitement for the move into their new arena.
“When evaluated against those expectations – realistic or not, the team’s goal was to reach the Eastern Conference finals – the 2017-’18 season was a bust. The Bucks went down meekly in Game 7 of their first-round playoff series against the undermanned Boston Celtics, who inarguably wanted it more.
“Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton aside, the sum of the Bucks’ parts is not nearly good enough. They’re incapable of being a winning playoff team as currently constituted.”
Gary D’Amato, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel sports columnist
“It was literally like a dream like I was actually imagining stuff and it just started happening. It was unexplainable. I couldn’t ask for anything in the world than to be with my brother.”
Shaquem Griffin, who was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks and becomes the first one-handed player picked in the NFL draft modern era. His brother, Shaquill, plays for the Seahawks.
