"Still trying to figure out why we can give $150 billion to Iran ... but [the president] can't get $5 billion for the wall." —Charlie Kirk

For the record: “For $5 trillion we could feed everyone on the planet, end malaria, and provide clean water and reliable electricity to every remote village in Africa. And we would probably have enough money left over to find a cure for cancer and Alzheimer’s. The entire Apollo project to put a man on the moon cost less than $200 billion. We are spending twice that much every year on climate change. … The greatest minds of the world entrusted with hundreds of billions of dollars can only come up with a solution that would entail the largest government power grab in world history, shutting down industrial production (just look at the catastrophe in Germany when they went all in for green energy), and throwing perhaps billions of human beings into poverty? If that’s the remedy, I will take my chances on a warming planet.” —Stephen Moore

Nailed it: “[Democrats] want Trump to lose more than they want the country to win.” —Lindsey Graham

Non sequitur: “To all the trump supporters who follow me who I have no desire to spend my time blocking, indictments are not fake news. They are proof of criminal activity. These are facts. Everyone is the president’s circle is a criminal because they all work for one.” —Chelsea Handler

The BIG Lie: “The FBI’s reputation is taking a big hit because the president has lied about it constantly. A whole lot of people … believe that nonsense. That’s a tragedy that will be undone eventually, but that damage has nothing to do with me.” —James Comey insisting the scandalous actions of a few FBI senior staff under his direction have nothing to do with the FBI’s reputation

Braying Jackass: “President Trump should understand there are not the votes for the wall in the House or the Senate. He is not going to get the wall in any form.” —Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

And last… “Still trying to figure out why we can give $150 billion to Iran, a country that hates us, burns our flag, and funds terrorism, but [the president] can’t get $5 billion for the wall to secure our country.” —Charlie Kirk
