The Gipper: “Let us beware that while [Soviet rulers] preach the supremacy of the state, declare its omnipotence over individual man, and predict its eventual domination over all the peoples of the earth, they are the focus of evil in the modern world.”

For the record: “It … remains clear that there was no collusion by the Trump campaign and that the Russians were ultimately unsuccessful in altering the results of the election. The American people have watched the President’s political opponents desperately search for evidence of collusion for years now. While it’s important that we do all we can to safeguard our future elections, it’s long past time for investigations into non-existent collusion to end.” —RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel

Braying Jenny I: “Great World Cup. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?” —Hillary Clinton

Braying Jenny II: “I used to worry that [Republicans] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s.” —Hillary Clinton on SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Pity me: “It affected me a lot. I’ve been thinking a lot about it. … I do think that being a part of the outrage machine is an inevitability now. That’s a reality everyone has to grapple with — not just me. The level of ferocity is something I hadn’t quite experienced up to that point, but I assume I’ll go through it again. Maybe I’ll be better prepared next time. I think we handled it well, but it was a pretty steep learning curve.” —Samantha Bee on what resulted of her “feckless c—t” remark to Ivanka Trump

And last… “There are 144 million more people in Russia who will never see the inside of an American courtroom. If Mueller indicts all of them, his stats will be really impressive … and there’ll still be no Trump espionage conspiracy against the election.” —Andrew McCarthy
