Political Editors · Jan. 29, 2018

The Gipper: “Some may try and tell us that this is the end of an era. But what they overlook is that in America, every day is a new beginning and every sunset is merely the latest milestone on a voyage that never ends.”

Upright: “There is a cooling and there is a heating. I mean, look, it used to not be climate change, it used to be global warming. That wasn’t working too well because it was getting too cold all over the place.” —Donald Trump

For the record: “It’s possible Mueller has damaging evidence of Russian collusion and subsequent obstruction that we’re not aware of. But, from the outside, this increasingly looks like an investigation about an investigation.” —Rich Lowry

Broken clock… “Well, sure. Everybody should be pleased when any worker gets a raise.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

Race bait: “[Donald Trump’s immigration] plan is a campaign to make America white again. They are changing the character of our country with what they are putting forth. They bring a tear to the eye of the Statue of Liberty and fear to the hearts of people who are here playing by the rules.” —Nancy Pelosi playing the race card and laughably claiming Republicans are targeting “those who are here playing by the rules.” (“You know what, we don’t need that type of rhetoric on either side, from Nancy, Paul Ryan or anybody else.” —Sen. Joe Manchin)

The BIG Lie: “People don’t understand — the one problem I think the current occupant of the White House — they don’t understand that sanctuary cities is [sic] what helps law enforcement. It helps public safety.” —Nancy Pelosi

Braying Jackass: “Personally, I just won’t believe [the claim on Trump’s weight] until he produces his long-form girth certificate.” —John Kerry

Cultural rebuttal: “Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.” —Nikki Haley on Hillary Clinton’s tone-deaf Grammys appearance

And last: “This is just too serious. This is how you lose a country — when the Department of Justice becomes ‘just us.’” —Rep. Louie Gohmert on apparent FBI bias and corruption
