“These Democrats are mercurial. No wonder more and more Americans are coming to the conclusion that the country is in better hands with a real estate developer.” — R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.
“Why do the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) keep on with Russia and not the other issues of the day? Well, probably because things are getting better.
