Upright: “If you don’t like the law, you go across the street. You change it. It’s not my job to do [Congress’s] job.” —Justice Neil Gorsuch

Observations: “The better you do and the happier you are, the more money you have in your pocket to spend, the more freedom you have to just live the life you want to live, the unhappier [Democrats] seem to get.” —Laura Ingraham

For the record: “Right now you see a NATO — I think we’re into the fourth straight year or fifth straight year of the nations, almost all of them, increasing their defense budget. So I could quantitatively say NATO’s actually stronger today.” —James Mattis on NATO under Donald Trump

Friendly fire: “I think that the identity politics that are being used to further divide us, to further drive separations between us, and purely for selfish, political gain is a real danger.” —Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

Friendly fire II: “I think it’s important for us to think about what is in the best interest of the country and the American people, and continuing to pursue impeachment is something that I think will only further … tear our country apart.” —Tulsi Gabbard

Friendly fire III: “I don’t support open borders. Without secure borders, we don’t really have a country. And while some of the other Democratic candidates will say, ‘Well, open borders, that’s a conservative argument and that’s not really what’s being advocated for,’ if you look at some of the practical implications of some of the things they are pushing for, it is essentially open borders.” —Tulsi Gabbard

Demo-gogues: “I really believe sincerely … [that] if the Bill of Rights … were put before the public today, I’m not too sure that we would hold onto [them].” —House Majority Whip James Clyburn

Alpha jackass: “[The El Paso assailant] drove 600 miles with that hatred, really at the invitation of our president, and opened fire with that AK-47 on innocent people in a Walmart, killing 22 of them and grievously wounding many dozens more.” —Beto O'Rourke

And last… “Are all the Democratic candidates really for abortion on demand at 39 weeks? That’s insanely evil. The average Ku Klux Klan member gets to look down on people who hold that position.” —Frank J. Fleming
