The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"We have to rebuild, I think, the confidence of our own base. Then we have to win over a new generation of people to our philosophy. If we do the messaging well, we do the policy development well … I think we’ve got a great moment ahead of us to do that."
Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA)


Quote II

“But, ladies and gentlemen, let me explain something. When the president of the United States — Republican or Democrat, male or female, none of that matters — when the president of the United States, and I’d never met Mr. Trump until I met him as president- elect when he called me back for a job interview, when the president of the United States asked you to do something in America you just do it.” Defense Secretary James Mattis


Quote III

May I say in passing, I do not appreciate the ridicule directed at my friend Cory Booker for that proud declaration we all remember. He wasn’t just making it up. The DNA evidence — at a precise ratio of one over one-thousand-and-twenty-four — has now proven his noble Thracian ancestry," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)

Does this fall into the category of Oooops or under the category of You Had One Job To Do?

New York State Attorney General Barbara Underwood has concluded that seven New York hospitals illegally billed rape survivors for their rape kits, at least 200 times, for sums ranging from $46 to $3,000, and then sent collections agents after survivors who could not pay.

New York law requires hospitals to bill the state's Office of Victim Services for rape kits; in addition to ensuring that rape kits are available regardless of ability to pay, the rule clears an impediment to reporting rape: women who bill their insurance for rape kits may fear stigma from their employers or families.

Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam was caught on camera in a vicious fight with the city’s Councilman Jeffree Fauntleroy and other unidentified men outside at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino last month.
