"We should always be cautious of those who would lower our profile, because they might just wind up lowering our flag." —Ronald Reagan

The Gipper: “Great nations have responsibilities to lead, and we should always be cautious of those who would lower our profile, because they might just wind up lowering our flag.”

Observations: “You watch Fox News — ‘We love President Trump.’ You watch MSNBC or CNN — ‘We hate President Trump.’ Is there any other news going on in the world that isn’t about Trump? I swear, if the World Trade Center had come down yesterday, the top story today in the mainstream media would be all about Donald Trump.” —Michael Reagan

For the record: “The Trump presidency is like a ‘Peanuts’ cartoon, with Trump as Lucy with the football. Every time you think this time will be different — this time he’ll stay on message, this time he’ll show some discipline, this time he’ll realize how much more powerful it is to be presidential — he pulls the football away.” —Marc A. Thiessen

Demo-gogues: “I think [Trump] should resign, and if he’s unwilling to do that, which is what I assume, then Congress should hold him accountable. We’re obligated to have hearings.” —Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

Dunderhead: “Yeah, I would have participated in [anthem protests], for sure. I’m sure I would have gotten some flak for it. That’s fine. I think that [Colin Kaepernick’s] message was a very simple one. It was police brutality needs to stop. We need to take a look at that.” —ex-NBA star Kobe Bryant

Village Idiots: “We don’t like to say we are a ‘backward’ country so let’s just say we’re suffering from a case of temporary insanity.” —Robert De Niro

Conspiracy? “The Woman’s [sic] March has now emerged as a major movement in the US and of course the Zionists have deeply infiltrated it the way they infiltrated the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and sought to twist it to the advantage of Israel.” —Columbia University professor Hamid Dabashi

And last… “The best argument against Trump’s parade is that it will become a cultural-war flashpoint and ‘the resistance’ will try its utmost to ruin the affair. Just imagine a protester in a pussy hat in a Tiananmen Square-style standoff with an M1 Abrams tank.” —Rich Lowry
