NO­TABLE QUOTES

Wisconsin Gazette - - Opinion -

“It was like talk­ing to a tod­dler.”

— RHONDA HART de­scrib­ing Don­ald Trump’s be­hav­ior dur­ing a meet­ing with par­ents of chil­dren who died in the school shoot­ing in Santa Fe, Texas.

“As has been stated by nu­mer­ous le­gal schol­ars, I have the ab­so­lute right to PAR­DON my­self, but why would I do that when I have done noth­ing wrong?”

— DON­ALD TRUMP in a tweet claim­ing he has the con­sti­tu­tional author­ity to par­don him­self.

“Don­ald Trump’s men­tal in­sta­bil­ity and se­vere psy­chopathol­ogy pose a grave risk both to our na­tion and the planet.”

— JOHN D. GART­NER, who is ad­vis­ing the pro­duc­tion of #UN­FIT, a doc­u­men­tary about a com­mu­nity of men­tal health pro­fes­sion­als “who be­lieve it is their eth­i­cal re­spon­si­bil­ity to sound the alarm about Don­ald Trump’s dan­ger­ous be­hav­ior,” ac­cord­ing to their news re­lease.

“Chair­man Gowdy’s ini­tial as­sess­ment is ac­cu­rate, but we have more dig­ging to do.”

— PAUL RYAN telling re­porters that he agrees with re­tir­ing U.S. Sen. Trey Gowdy that there’s no ev­i­dence to sup­port Don­ald Trump’s claim the FBI spied on his cam­paign. “I sus­pect Sean Han­nity re­ally be­lieves it. The oth­ers are smarter. They know what they’re do­ing. It’s be­wil­der­ing to me. I mean, I wanted to just cry out and say, ‘How can you do this? How can you lie to our coun­try? How can you know­ingly at­tack our Con­sti­tu­tion, the bedrock of our sys­tem of gov­ern­ment, the bedrock of our coun­try?’”

— For­mer Fox News mil­i­tary an­a­lyst RALPH PETERS an­swer­ing An­der­son Cooper’s ques­tion about whether the net­work’s hosts ac­tu­ally “be­lieve the stuff they are say­ing.” Say­ing that he was fed up with the lies spread by Fox, Peters quit the net­work in March.

“It’s a shorter walk than we think, par­tic­u­larly to­day, from ‘I won’t bake them a cake be­cause they’re gay’ to ‘I won’t seat him here be­cause he’s black.’”

— SETH MAC­FAR­LANE tweet­ing about the Supreme Court’s de­ci­sion to sup­port — on nar­row pro­ce­dural grounds — a Chris­tian baker who re­fused to make a wed­ding cake for a gay cou­ple for re­li­gious rea­sons.

“See, a lot of peo­ple go to the gym and they’ll work out for two hours and all. Then they get their new knees when they’re 55 years old and they get their new hips and they do all those things. I don’t have those prob­lems.”

— DON­ALD TRUMP ex­plain­ing to Reuters why he doesn’t be­lieve in ex­er­cise. It was re­cently re­vealed that in Jan­uary Trump went on a diet, which ap­par­ently was un­suc­cess­ful.
