Troll master: “No matter how much Trump lowers the bar, the Democrats limbo right under it.” —Frank J. Fleming

Wishful thinking: “Maybe after [Ilhan Omar has] visited Somalia for a while she might come back and appreciate America more.” —Sen. Rand Paul

Lacking self-awareness: “Our president has a hate agenda. He doesn’t have a policy agenda.” —Rep. Rashida Tlaib

Braying Jenny: “I truly believe the state of Israel is — it exists, correct? But understand, does it exist in the detriment of inequality for the Palestinian people, the detriment of not moving forward in a peaceful resolution? We’re never going to have peace, I truly believe, if separate but equal is the way they want to go.” —Rashida Tlaib

Non Compos Mentis: “Elijah [Cummings] is the black man. [Trump is] calling the black man the racist. I mean, I don’t think people understand that particularly. It’s outrageous and stupid to call a black person a racist.” —Joy Behar

Non sequitur: “It’s not about not liking the president. It’s about loving democracy. It’s about loving our country. It’s about making a difference for generations yet unborn.” —Rep. Elijah Cummings of the Abortion Party

Race bait: “He attacks everybody. I know Donald Trump. He’s not mature enough to take criticism. … He’s like a child. But he has a particular venom for blacks and people of color.” —Al Sharpton

Braying Jenny II: “Look, there are African American men in this [picture with Donald Trump]! How much did he pay them to be ‘blackground’?” —Bette Midler in a since-deleted social-media post

And last… “With the President’s tweets, he has the Democrats defending crime ridden Baltimore and Al Sharpton on top of them wanting to give illegal aliens healthcare while taking it away from American citizens. It’s amazing.” —Erick Erickson
