QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country.  You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.”
President Trump at a roundtable meeting on Wednesday about U.S. immigration policies. His remarks sparked intense backlash from the media.

 “Any fair-minded person who doesn’t assume everything Trump says is a ‘dog whistle’ meant to send neo-Nazis into a furor knows Trump was referring specifically to MS-13, a ruthless, murderous gang that has a tremendous amount of power in California and has been the subject of conversation for Trump on numerous occasions. Trump was clearly not referring to all ‘undocumented immigrants’ as animals, as (a NY) Times’ tweet suggested.

“The news media knows this, of course, but it would rather spend its time and resources trying to destroy the president than report what’s happening in the world or discuss real issues—like, you know, out-of-control gangs that rape and murder people.”
Justin Haskins, the editor-in-chief of the New Revere Daily Press and CrazyThingsLiberalsSay.com
 

“John McCain needs to retire from the Senate…far too many career politicians, as they approach their sunset years, stay in office longer than they are able to do the job….he should resign because he physically cannot do the job anymore. When our representatives find themselves no longer able to perform their duties, it is time for them to step down…even if they are a hero.”
Columnist Derek Hunter

It’s been happening everywhere. I’ve always kind of felt like eventually it was going to happen here, too. So, I don’t know. I wasn’t surprised, I was just scared.”
A 17-year-old Santa Fe High School student identified as Paige, hours after a terrorist killed 10 people at her school

“We have elections. Go vote if it’s a policy thing and a behavior thing. I don’t know if you can get impeached for being a jerk, but if we did, this guy would be long gone. But that’s not unifying.”
Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, rejecting calls for President Donald Trump to be impeached at this time

“You know what, he doesn’t (miss Milwaukee). Because the thing is, you don’t know this about the Fonz, he’s actually a wimp in the snow. He’s cool until he sees the first snowflake. And then he goes right to his condo in Palm Beach.”
Henry Winkler about his character Fonzie in an interview with GQ
