Braying Jenny: “I believe that [the DOJ] would have no choice and that they should, yes. … There has to be accountability. … Everyone should be held accountable, and the president is not above the law.” —Sen. Kamala Harris on prosecuting Trump should she defeat him in 2020

Rabble rousing: “I think that an impeachment inquiry is right on our doorstep. If now isn’t the time … what is the bar, what is the line that we’re waiting to be crossed for an impeachment inquiry? … And so without a clear boundary, it seems as though we’re kind of sitting on our hands.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)

Those “deplorables”: “It is glaringly apparent that many who support the president’s administration are either racists, steeped in religious beliefs, ignorant, or as my mother used to say, just plain dumb. I believe the crooked ascension of Trump to the Oval Office is a gauge that measures the declining patriotic and moral values of the many citizens of America as well as being the revelation of the hidden bigotry, judgmental attitudes that yet exist in many of those who call themselves evangelicals.” —Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH) reading a letter from a constituent from the House floor

Braying Jenny II: “It is tiring to hear from so many sex-starved males on this floor talk about a woman’s right to choose.” —Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA)

The BIG Lie: “For eight years, there wasn’t one single hint of a scandal or a lie.” —Joe Biden on his time during the deceitful and scandal-ridden Obama regime

Belly laugh of the week: “We are defenders of the people, and we want to defend the people because we are devoted to the people. We are not here to spin things or color things a certain way.” —CNN’s Jim Acosta

Non Compos Mentis: “Curing cancer is going to be much more difficult when there’s so much climate change and pollutants in the environment because a lot of cancer is environmentally caused and this president rolls back anything that will clean the air.” —ABC’s Joy Behar on Joe Biden’s laughable promise to cure cancer if elected president

Braying Jackass: “I think he just liked being on TV. I had no sense that he was the soulless bastard that he’s turned into.” —David Letterman on having Donald Trump as a guest on his show more than 30 times in his career

Trump Derangement Syndrome: “Prayers for the powerful at the expense of the powerless, especially when the powerful in question is Trump, strike me as immoral. … With our Constitution at risk and our values on the line, praying for Trump is the last thing we should be doing.” —The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart

Upright: “God is sovereign, and when we pray for our presidents, we are asking that God do His will through an always imperfect man — and His will can include repentance, wisdom, and justice. Make no mistake, the command to pray for leaders was not contingent on the virtue of the leader.” —David French
