QUOTES OF THE WEEK


If you get indicted, will you drop out?”
Univision/CNN debate moderator Jorge Ramos, asking Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton about federal investigations into her exclusive use of a private email server while secretary of state


“Oh, for goodness ... It’s not going to happen. I’m not even answering that question.”
 Clinton’s response


“Think about if you were in my shoes and this happened to you. And the governor or whoever it was had a wife and then they’re running for public office but all that time when that was going on, the scandal and all of these women that were coming out and all of the stuff that my lawyers, investigators had dug up with other women that said the same thing.”
Paula Jones in a radio interview saying that if the public knew the “truth” about Hillary Clinton’s cover up of her husband’s abuses it would “destroy” her political career because all women have to do is put themselves in Jones’s place


“Just because I’m a woman now doesn’t make me all of a sudden liberal. I would never, ever, ever vote for Hillary… If Hillary becomes president, the country is over.”
Caitlyn Jenner


“Many Americans were not only saddened but angry that Iran publicized photographs of captured American sailors weeping. But do you think that Reverend Jeremiah Wright was saddened and angry? What about his 20-year disciple in the White House? Let us not forget that President Obama voluntarily humbled himself -- and America -- by bowing to foreign leaders.”
Columnist Thomas Sowell


“People are getting more frustrated. We’re having planes being held at the gate. People are running right past the Starbucks, the Dunkin’ Donuts and Whataburger. We need them to slow down and buy stuff.
Mark Duebner, city of Dallas director of aviation, on worsening Transportation Security Administration screening slowdowns heading into the busy summer travel season


“Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we've never seen, she's gonna have to swallow the camera.”
Bette Midler


"I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives. I don't do drugs, I hardly drink, I've never committed a crime -- and yet I'm a bad role model for being proud of my body?"
Kim Kardashian


“When (Donald) Trump brings his penis to the limelight, while obviously this rankles the Republican establishment, nonetheless, there is a certain kind of respect he's afforded for going there.  He gets credit for that swagger. But when a woman does it, the thinly veiled slut-shaming is immediate.”
Juliet Williams, a professor of gender studies at UCLA

QUOTES OF THE WEEK


“One thing he said to me is that as president, you know, campaigning is one thing. As president he would have a different tone if he was actually in the White House. Yes, he can have a different tone. He really can have a different tone, because to build the empire and the business that he built, you cannot always use that kind of a tone. And he can really change. I know him, and he could really change the words and the tone.”
Donald Trump’s wife, Melania


“If we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished.

“Isn’t he a huge business success and doesn’t he know what he’s talking about? No, he isn’t, and no he doesn’t.

“He inherited his business. He didn't create it.

“And what ever happened to Trump Airlines? How about Trump University? And then there's Trump Magazine and Trump Vodka and Trump Steaks and Trump Mortgage? A business genius he is not.

"Given the current delegate selection process, this means that I would vote for Marco Rubio in Florida, for John Kasich in Ohio, and for Ted Cruz or whichever one of the other two contenders has the best chance of beating Mr. Trump in a given state.

"Think of Donald Trump's personal qualities, the bullying, the greed, the showing off, the misogyny, the absurd third grade theatrics. We have long referred to him as 'The Donald.' He is the only person in America to whom we have added an article before his name. It wasn't because he had attributes we admired.

"A person so untrustworthy and dishonest as Hillary Clinton must not become president.
But a Trump nomination enables her victory."

"His domestic policies would lead to recession. His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe. He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president. And his personal qualities would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill."
Mitt Romney


Mr. Trump's current (and third) wife, would be the First Lady, has her own record in pornography. In fact, she posed nude in her years as a model. That's right, if the GOP continues down this path of madness we will have a presidential nominee that degrades women, has bragged about his adultery, has made money off of strip tease shows, and a First Lady that has posed totally nude.
Rebecca Hagelin is author of the new best seller, 30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family


Ask yourself, if your child behaved like Donald Trump would you be okay with it?

Would you be okay if your son called a girl ugly? Would you be okay if your child used vulgar language, made fun of other people or behaved rudely? Do you want your children to grow up thinking the measure of a person’s worth is how much money they make? Do you want them growing up believing something is only worth fighting for when you win? Do you want your child to be popular no matter how they gain their popularity or do you want them to be a good person even if it means they stand alone?

What message does it send our children when we say it’s okay to vote for someone who is rude, abrasive and vulgar as long it’s directed toward someone we’re mad at?

What message does it send our children when we vote for someone who publically and unapologetically cheated on his wife, uses vulgar, degrading language, and openly advocates a sexually immoral lifestyle?

If you would not be okay with your children behaving the way Donald Trump does then why would we want him to be our president?

Heaven help us if this is the message we decide to send our children.

In recent weeks, Mr. Trump has endorsed the Code Pink view of the Iraq War (Bush lied; people died). He has cited and embraced an aphorism of Benito Mussolini. (“It’s a very good quote,” Mr. Trump told NBC’s Chuck Todd.) He has refused to release his “very beautiful” tax returns. And he has taken his time disavowing the endorsement of onetime Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke—offering, by way of a transparently dishonest excuse, that “I know nothing about David Duke.” Mr. Trump left the Reform Party in 2000 after Mr. Duke joined it. None of this seems to have made the slightest dent in Mr. Trump’s popularity. If anything it has enhanced it. In the species of political pornography in which Mr. Trump trafficks, the naughtier the better.

eputy editor, editorial page, The Wall Street Journal


“I think it would be a huge mistake if the Republicans did anything other than have an absolutely stonewall. I don’t have any of the confidence George [Will] has in the nimbleness and intelligence of Republicans in managing this. The minute they open this up they are going to get rolled. This is the Scalia seat. This would change the court for a generation. It’s not kind of a neutral seat. And I think it’s something that you can’t lose, so our advice is not to nominate.”
Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer on President Barack Obama’s nomination to the Supreme Court to fill the seat left vacant by the late Antonin Scalia


“Why all the protests this year? This is the 88th Academy Awards and I'm sure this has happened at least 71 times before. I'm sure there were years in the '50s and '60s where black people didn't get nominated. But we had better things to protest. We were too busy getting raped and lynched to care who was up for best cinematographer. When your grandma is swinging from a tree, It's kind of hard to get worked up about best foreign film.

“I thought about quitting. I thought about it real hard. But I realized, they're going to have the Oscars anyway. They're not going to cancel the Oscars because I quit. “
