For the record: “I told [Trump] that I’d had a healthy respect for the media. I deal with them all the time. … But I had a newfound empathy for him in watching how a totally debunked story [about me took off].” —Sen. Bob Corker

Belly laugh of the week: “As I leave the Senate, I have to admit that it feels like we’re losing the war for truth.” —Sen. Al Franken, who’s been a key part of Democrats’ war ON the truth

Braying Jenny: “[Tax reform is] a monster — a Frankenstein — and anybody who’s familiar with Frankenstein knows it was a creation, a monster that was created.” —Nancy Pelosi

Braying Jackass: “What a shocker … there’s ONE black person there and sure enough they have him standing right next to the mic like a manipulated prop. Way to go @SenatorTimScott.” —HuffPost blogger Andy Ostroy (“Uh probably because I helped write the bill for the past year, have multiple provisions included, got multiple Senators on board over the last week and have worked on tax reform my entire time in Congress. But if you’d rather just see my skin color, pls feel free.” —Sen. Tim Scott)

Alpha Jackass: “Pretty much every man over 30 has to really look and start thinking about their part [in promoting sexual assault].” —actress Jodie Foster

Thou doth exaggerate too much: “This is the worst moment I’ve had in the 34 years I’ve been living in the United States. … I have never been treated so badly. I have never been insulted so much. We’ve never been attacked so much. They have never tried to run us out as much as now.” —Univision anchor Jorge Ramos

And last… “I like when the poor get tax cuts. I like when the middle class get tax cuts. I like when the rich get tax cuts. I like when the super rich get tax cuts. I like everybody keeping the money they earned.” —Frank Fleming
