QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Remarkable to watch such obvious political theater, with Democrats too far down the path to stop and avoid making the worst political miscalculation in modern history.”
Trump Campaign Communications Director Tim Murtaugh

“The President looks forward to receiving in the Senate the fair treatment and due process which continues to be disgracefully denied to him by the House.”
Trump’s press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, labeled the impeachment proceedings a “desperate charade”

“There is zero chance the president will be removed from office.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

“Is this when we just hear staff ask questions of other staff and Members get dealt out of this whole hearing & for the next four hours you’re going to try to overturn the results of an election with unelected people?!”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) at an impeachment hearing this week

“I don’t see anything there worthy of actually taking a president out of office. I’m concerned about splitting our nation apart.”
Democratic Rep. Jeff Van Drew  said that he will vote against articles of impeachment that outline the case for President Trump’s removal from office, becoming the first Democrat to publicly say he will not vote with his colleagues.

“When his time has passed, when his grip on our politics is gone, when our country returns, as surely it will, to calmer times and stronger leadership, history will look back on our actions here today. How would you be remembered?”
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler

Democrats think the only thing they need is a “32-second commercial saying we impeached him. That’s the wrong reason to impeach somebody, and the American people are seeing through this. But at the end of the day, my heart breaks for a committee that has trashed this institution.”
Georgia Rep. Doug Collins  argued that Democrats are impeaching the president because they think they can’t beat him in the 2020 election

“We have to get the people of our country, of this country, to love Israel more, I have to tell you that. We have to do it. We have to get them to love Israel more. Because you have Jewish people that are great people — they don’t love Israel enough.”
President Trump

“So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”
President Trump after 16-year old climate change activist Greta Thunberg was named Time magazine’s “Person of The Year”

“I think it’s (the Me Too movement) gone too far the other way. Some of the women I really admire. But I don’t understand women being sexually abused and then going and having a relationship with that person.”
Hollywood agent Toni Howard
