We didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II. You know, you had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.
I think when you come to sarin gas, there was no … he was not using the gas on his own people in the same way that Assad is doing.

The American people get hammered because worthy persons like Judge Neil Gorsuch are disparaged and innovative policies are sabotaged. I mean, did you watch any of the Gorsuch hearings? I don’t want to compare the judge to Jesus but it was exactly the same thing.

Capri Cafaro: Part of it is the rub is that Bill Nye is actually an engineer; he’s not really a science guy. But apparently the folks that are organizing this march got in a little bit of a kerfuffle because they were very concerned that they were projecting this image of stereotypes that only scientists — the only scientists that are out there are white guys.

We need more jobs, we need better wages, a lot better wages. We’re gonna work very hard on the inner city. Ben is gonna be doing that, big league. That’s one of the big things that you’re gonna be looking at. We need safer communities and we’re going to do that with law enforcement. We’re gonna make it safe. We’re gonna make it much better than it is right now.

Anybody who pretends I’m not smart or not credible, it’s like, ‘Excuse me, I’ve spoken 1.2 million words on TV, okay?,’ You wanna focus on two here and two there, it’s on you, you’re a fucking miserable person, P.S., just whoever you are.

That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.
