Donald J. Trump
“Get going. Move forward. Aim High. Plan a takeoff. Don't just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won't happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you'll love it up here.”
Donald J. Trump

Donald J. Trump
“I've read hundreds of books about China over the decades. I know the Chinese. I've made a lot of money with the Chinese. I understand the Chinese mind.”
Donald J. Trump, The Art of the Deal

Hannah Arendt
“Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies, their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such, for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it.”
Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

Kamand Kojouri
“They want us to be afraid.
They want us to be afraid of leaving our homes.
They want us to barricade our doors
and hide our children.
Their aim is to make us fear life itself!
They want us to hate.
They want us to hate 'the other'.
They want us to practice aggression
and perfect antagonism.
Their aim is to divide us all!
They want us to be inhuman.
They want us to throw out our kindness.
They want us to bury our love
and burn our hope.
Their aim is to take all our light!
They think their bricked walls
will separate us.
They think their damned bombs
will defeat us.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that my soul and your soul are old friends.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that when they cut you I bleed.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that we will never be afraid,
we will never hate
and we will never be silent
for life is ours!”
Kamand Kojouri

Charles M. Blow
“Trump’s America is not America: not today’s or tomorrow’s, but yesterday’s.

Trump’s America is brutal, perverse, regressive, insular and afraid. There is no hope in it; there is no light in it. It is a vast expanse of darkness and desolation.

And that is a vision of America that most of the people in this country cannot and will not abide.”
Charles M. Blow

Donald J. Trump
“It's a blip, not a catastrophe.”
Donald J. Trump

Wynne McLaughlin
“Maybe history wouldn't have to repeat itself if we listened once in awhile.”
Wynne McLaughlin

Alex Morritt
“The term POTUS used to be viewed around the world with a degree of respect. Unfortunately the current US president has junked any last remnant of that image. Instead he seems only too happy to trash the environment; to scrap age old alliances promoting peace and prosperity; to discard internationally binding treaties; to toss aside like garbage hard won civil liberties. Maybe DETRITUS is a more fitting acronym for the current occupant of the White House - 'Deranged egotistical tyrant ruining & isolating the U.S.”
Alex Morritt, Lines & Lenses

“You can only blame fake news so many times before the truth starts to emerge from the newsprint.”
Anthony T. Hincks

David Frum
“Power creates temptations, and that is true even for the smallest increments of power: the power of the building inspector, of the customs official, of the cop at the traffic stop. It took a lot of work by a lot of people over a long time to build even America's highly imperfect standards of public integrity. Undoing that work would be a far easier task. Corruption is the resting state of pubic affairs; integrity a painstaking, unceasing struggle against cultural inertia and political gravity.”
David Frum, Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic

Alex Morritt
“President Trump displays less finesse than a bull in a china shop. Just as Prime Minister May managed - after many months of bitter wrangling - to reach a degree of consensus on what Britain's future relationship with the EU should look like, in comes the marauding beast upending all the finely balanced Wedgwood. Britain may well need some form of future trade deal with the US but it certainly isn't one that should be struck with the co-author of a lame business book more appropriately named 'Art of the Steal'.”
Alex Morritt, Lines & Lenses

Alex Morritt
“As the 2018 World Cup Championship in Russia draws to a close, President Trump scores a hat-trick of diplomatic faux pas - first at the NATO summit, then on a UK visit, and finally with a spectacular own goal in Helsinki, thereby handing Vladimir Putin a golden propaganda trophy. For as long as this moron continues to queer the pitch by refusing to be a team player, America's Achilles' heel will go from bad to worse. It's high time somebody on his own side tackled him in his tracks.”
Alex Morritt, Lines & Lenses

Robert Montgomerie
“Yet behind all of the populist hot air, and the big shot persona, is a man who is very cunning. As a real estate mogul worth billions, a man like Donald Trump knows how to relate to an audience better than a politician. He has to as each transaction he is working on can increase his personal wealth. Moreover, he doesn’t have the time to make the connections while trying to close a deal that an average politician does. He has to, as a salesman, become expert at being a “five minute friend”. Every move has to count in building a credible connection that will get him to, and beyond, the closing table.”
Robert Montgomerie

DaShanne Stokes
“Resistance isn’t enough. If we want change, we have to get out the vote.”
DaShanne Stokes

Helen Thorpe
“Meeting people whose life trajectories were so different from my own enlarged my way of thinking. Outside the school, arguments over refugees were raging, but the time I had spent inside the building showed me that those conversations were based on phantasms. People were debating their own fears. What I had witnessed taking place inside this school every day revealed the rhetoric for what it was: more propaganda than fact. Donald Trump appeared to believe his own assertions, but I hoped that in the years to come, more people would be able to recognize refugees for who they really were--simply the most vulnerable people on earth.”
Helen Thorpe, The Newcomers: Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom

“In my alternate universe, everyone looks like Donald Trump, and I look like myself.
And you know what?
I still don't feel like that I'm the alien.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“The trump has been played. Now it is up to the joker to see if he has a place in the pack.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“During the 72nd Annual Tony Awards-Show, Robert De Niro said : “I’m gonna say one thing. F- Trump.” I say that with such Foes, you don't need Friends.”
Jean-Michel Rene Souche

Stewart Stafford
“Every time Donald Trump opens his mouth, he makes his voice grate again.”
Stewart Stafford

Thor Benson
“Donald Trump isn't the first racist president, but he is the first to come to power because of racism against a president.”
Thor Benson

Thor Benson
“I've never been so happy to have a stupid president. Imagine how much damage he could do with a brain.”
Thor Benson

Thor Benson
“There is so little backbone within the Republican Party that I think they should just take the next logical step and join Cirque du Soleil.”
Thor Benson

Bret Easton Ellis
“The Patty Winters Show this morning was in two parts. The first was an exclusive interview with Donald Trump, the second was a report on women who’ve been tortured.”
Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho

“And I get angry. Because we've tried so hard. Ninety-six percent of Black women tried so hard in voting against him. And not only did this country not elect Clinton, it elected a person who publicly supported sexual assault, a man one accused of rape by his daughter Ivanka's mother. I am angry with the Democratic Party for not knowing that there could have been and should have been a better candidate and angry that a better campaign -- a campaign that honored the journey, that included community in real and transformative ways -- was not launched. I am angry I didn't realize -- or accept on a cellular level -- how wedded to racism and misogyny average Americans are. I am angry at my own naiveté. Our own naiveté. There was a real and substantive difference between these two candidates and we didn't take that seriously enough.”
Patrisse Khan-Cullors, When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir

“Even the current Autocrat seemed somehow familiar and yet different - he was a bombastic business tycoon who had rallied the common man to his cause and was even now attempting to roust the cancerous elitists and their foot soldiers from the country. It felt oddly natural and familiar, but was at the same time larger and bolder than the world he left behind.”
Jon Mollison, Adventure Constant: A Tale of the Planetary Romantic

Michael Wolff
“Trump, in Bannon's view, was a chapter, or even a detour, in the Trump revolution, which had always been about weakness in the two major parties. The Trump presidency - however long it lasted - had created the opening that would provide the true outsiders their opportunity. Trump was just the beginning.”
Michael Wolff, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House

Thor Benson
“Trump taught us how easily seemingly serious people can become profoundly idiotic. He turned career politicians into circus freaks.”
Thor Benson
