The Gipper: “Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don’t interfere.”

Non Compos Mentis: “The US will soon face the consequences of a #TaxBill that takes money from the poor to give to the rich. Those who voted for it will face consequences later, when they are judged. Do you think Jesus’s words about being judged on how we care for the poor don’t apply? Think again.” —Jesuit priest James Martin (“The Bible is crystal clear on Christ’s views on the exact right American marginal tax rate, but super fuzzy on sexuality and killing babies.” —The Federalist’s Sean Davis in a sarcastic response)

Hyperbole much? “Voters fooled by propaganda and tribal hatred. Millenials: move away if you can. USA is over. We killed it.” —Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald on the GOP tax cuts

Proving Republicans right out of spite: “Any tax savings that i [sic] might get from this unfair and mean spirited gop [sic] tax bill i [sic] will donate to charities to help the poor and vulnerable. Who is with me?” —ABC’s Matthew Dowd

Alpha Jackass: “Go F— Yourself, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, You Debased Redneck Motherf—.” —headline by Wonkette Senior Editor Evan Hurst

Still chasing: “The [Senate] Judiciary Committee has an investigation going as well and it involves obstruction of justice and I think what we’re beginning to see is the putting together of a case of obstruction of justice.” —Dianne Feinstein

And last… “In a harsh and stinging rebuke, ABC News forcing Brian Ross to take a Christmas vacation and return to work after New Year’s.” —Twitter satirist @hale_razor
