Quotes About

Lindsey Graham He's a jackass at a time when we need to have a serious debate.... Every time I turn around somebody asks we what I think about Donald Trump and the latest person he has trashed.
Rand Paul He [Donald Trump] buys and sells politicians of all stripes.
Michael Gerson ... there is little upside in analyzing [Donald] Trump's words. Those who support him are not looking for fancy language, of political correctness, or logical coherence, or human decency–all those establishment poses.
Seth Meyers If Donald Trump ran for President, it would be great for us comedians. It would not be good for anybody else, but it would be terrific for us.
George Will … [a] blowbriating ignoramous … Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics.
Rich Lowry Stopping Trump is imperative, so long as it doesn’t require the party rethinking its uncompromising stance on abortion, guns or immigration. Every old rule should be thrown out in the cause of the resistance—except the tried-and-true orthodoxies on social issues. . . .It’s not just that national Democrats don’t believe any give on these issues is politically necessary—they positively oppose it.
Holman W. Jenkins, Jr. Liberal hypocrites like Mr. Weinstein were a big reason 63 million Americans voted for a conservative hypocrite like Mr. Trump.
Holman W. Jenkins, Jr. The abundant paradox of the disreputable Mr. Trump is the way he entices so many others to shred their own reputations. His political existence is practically built on the willingness of the media to rise mechanically, predictably to the bait every time.

We can't let people down when they can't get any medical care, when they're sick and don't have money to go to a doctor. You help them. Health, Healthcare & Medicine ;Money, Coins & Minting
We have to go see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what's happening. We have to talk to them, maybe in certain areas, closing that Internet up in some way. Somebody will say, 'Oh, freedom of speech, freedom of speech.' These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people. Freedom & Liberty
We have to straighten out our country; we have to make our country great again, and we need energy and enthusiasm.
We need a great president.
We need a president with tremendous intelligence, smarts, cunning, strength and stamina.
We need intelligence in this country. We need a certain toughness in this country, or we're going to end up like a lot of the other places, and we're not going to have a country left.
We want Boeing to make a lot of money but not that much money. Politics, Politicians & Political Campaigning & Fund Raising
Well, I am a Republican, and I would run as a Republican. And I have a lot of confidence in the Republican Party. I don't have a lot of confidence in the president. I think what's happening to this country is unbelievably bad. We're no longer a respected country.
Well, real estate is always good, as far as I'm concerned.
Well, yes, I've fired a lot of people. Generally I like other people to fire, because it's always a lousy task. But I have fired many people.
We've had soldiers that were so badly hurt and killed. I want their families to get something.
What I hate about Halle Berry is there's always drama around her. It's always fighting, automobile accidents, fistfights, boyfriends fighting ex-husbands for the child.
What my father gave me more than anything else is great tutoring and a great brain, frankly. You know, my father's brother was a top person at MIT, went to MIT, graduated from MIT, was a teacher at MIT, a professor at MIT, a great engineer. I mean, you know, I have very good genes.

What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate.
When Michael Jackson died, I knew him very well. And everybody was talking about Michael Jackson. They didn't know him. They knew nothing. Some of them never even met him. And I sort of laughed to myself.
When somebody challenges you, fight back. Be brutal, be tough.
Windmills are going to be the death of Scotland and even England if they don't do something about them. They are ruining the countryside. Death
With out passion you don't have energy, with out energy you have nothing.
Years ago, I predicted that Iran would take over Iraq. Iran and Iraq used to fight back and forth.
You don't get a standing ovation and get boos, by the way. They don't go hand in hand.
You have to blast to build in Manhattan. And the buildings went up in Manhattan because of the power of that bedrock. Once you dig that foundation - and they dig with dynamite - and once you dynamite out and you secure that foundation, that building isn't going anywhere. Power
You have to think anyway, so why not think big? Leaders & Leadership
You know that ISIS wants to go in and take over the Vatican? You have heard that. You know, that's a dream of theirs, to go into Italy.
You know the funny thing, I don't get along with rich people. I get along with the middle class and the poor people better than I get along with the rich people. Humor
You learn their honesty, you learn their competitiveness. You learn a lot about a person. It's not that they have to sink the putt and there's a great deal of talent involved - but you do learn about how competitive a person is on the golf course, and frankly, how honest.

You've seen my statements; I do very well. I don't mind paying some taxes. The middle class is getting clobbered in this country. You know the middle class built this country, not the hedge fund guys, but I know people in hedge funds that pay almost nothing, and it's ridiculous, OK?
